    I have what I think is the ebay one listed above, and like it. It is slender, and I secure it in a rubber-banded mane braid so it doesn't slide around on the neck. I prefer my breastplate as an...

    I've seen Black Country work well for that type. They have a new Solare jump model that feels much flatter and more streamlined for the rider. Just got one for my mare and I loooove it! (And I grew...

    This--although I've never had sitting hurt; I feel it always helps. I also think a lot of horses are just more variable in how they jump trot jumps, so it's harder to know what to expect. My current...

    If your own trainer can't or won't go with you to evaluate a horse in a far-off location (and it sounds like you've been looking hard locally with no luck), then I would suggest asking for...

    On my phone so will try to keep this short. My young mare was very similar for a while. Very smart and sensitive. Much of the issue was my seat. She is very sensitive to any blocking with my seat or...

    Equine Express, if they're still around. Can't believe it's been 9 years since I shipped mine cross country!

    I worked with Patty Merli to get a jump saddle--my new BC Solare just arrived and it is beeeyoootiful! I got serge panels for my tight-backed little mare. Work and family mean I can't ride in it...

    I really like him, too. Looks like he has a good brain, nice structure and breeding, not all tight and wonky through his body, good-looking feet. If I had time and funds for more than one going...

    No specific input on the air bladders, but my tight-backed mare appears to loooove Black Country's serge panels.

    With horses that are extra particular about their saddles, I think the best thing...

    Lots of good advice here. One thing that helps me is to decide in advance what the 'task' is that I'm going to complete without second guessing myself. Afterwards, I give myself permission to analyze...

    Marsha Sapp at Southern Oaks just outside Tallahassee: http://www.southernoaksequestrian.com/

    She is especially good with the sensitive ones, is extremely hard-working, and will put ground...

    Tea tree oil! At some point in CA, I bought a locally made bar of glycerin with tea tree oil in it, and it did seem to help with mold/mildew. (Northern CA, where it rains for 3 months in the...

    I had one for several years, bought used, and the HSLC never seemed to change the color (it was already off white by the time I got it, but didn't darken further). :)

    I think they can change to some degree, but some of it is probably just underlying personality--as German Shepherds tend to be more aloof, while many Labs love everybody.

    I got a covered leather monoflap. Has held up very well, and is very comfortable and secure.

    Lots of good advice here, and I especially like TB or not TB?'s post above. I will just add that some horses pull/hang with a bit that is uncomfortable for their mouth shape, which is not an effect...

    As others have said, saddles need to be fitted to the working horse, not the horse standing in crossties. The latter is a good start, but sometimes their backs change shape when they are working...

    It should be easy and inexpensive to find a Waterford to try. I used one to hack and sometimes do XC on my older mare, who had a tendency to pull hard out on hacks. The catch is that it's not really...

    Thank you, all! I've ordered Quiessence; will see how that works and go from there. Also going to add more exercise into her schedule. :)

    Spirig compared to Prestige

    How does the fit of the Spirig trees compare to the Prestige trees (in general)? The Prestige 2000D with a 35 tree works very well for my young mare; now looking for a jumping saddle and came across...

    So we are venturing into the world of ponies! My daughter is five, and we just picked up a little (~12 hands) pony mare for indefinite lease. The pony is wonderful and exactly what I wanted, but is...

    It sounds like you need a trainer who can work with you two together. No shame in what you're feeling; when my young mare was 4 and 5 I realized she needed a very different ride than I knew how to...
