    I looked and looked for a really special dressage bridle last year, and decided on the Antares double. The leather quality is amazing and I love the finish and attention to detail. ...

    I have not followed your posts, so I'm not knowledgeable about your pony; forgive me if these are basic questions that you've asked and answered elsewhere. What market are you targeting for this...

    Can I gently suggest that you might be over-thinking this just a bit? I totally get that you feel like you're navigating a tight rope, but I think you can write a solid, fair reference letter that...

    Be careful that you are encouraging your horse to work from his hind end when you do your long and low work. On a horse that is built downhill, it's quite easy to actually drive them...

    I always used to stay at the Inn at Ormsby Hill (http://www.ormsbyhill.com/)

    It's a bit further than the Equinox, but IMO, well worth it. The place is gorgeous, and the inn keepers are lovely!

    i personally love my Butet; I've had several over the years and my current one is a flat seat, FB2 tree (the wider one designed for WBs.) Even though I mostly ride dressage now, I refuse to part...

    I will answer this as a CT landlord, so take it for what it is worth. Ice dams are a problem in our area in the winter, unfortunately. When we lived there, we got the long rake that is used to...

    I've never tried their jackets but I have a couple pairs of their breeches and like them. They're cute and they've held up nicely. Not the quality of Pikeur or anything, but they are also a third...

    I bought one from Dover when I first started doing dressage a couple of years ago. At the time I just wanted a schooling quality snaffle and it seemed to fit the bill. The flash fell off (it was...

    Need more information to offer a useful assessment.

    Is the horse a hunter? Jumper? Eq horse?

    How is the horse built? Does the 15.3 hand horse take up a lot of leg?

    What sort of strides do...
