    All great advice, thanks! I'm not usually a fan of 'padding up to fit', but I guess it works ok for most cases as long as the saddle is a reasonable fit. I think I'll wait to see if I take this...

    I'd like to jump into this before it disappears from the front page!

    I'm getting back into the leasing game, after owning a few years ago and taking a little break for studies. Most owners here...

    Foxtrot's - pity I'm on the other side of the country, so no chance we could help each other out.
    It's encouraging to know that there are people on the other side of the equation, who would like...

    Foxtrot's - really? Because that sounds like fantasy to me! IME owners like you are few and far between. I more often rode for people trying to sell (if competing) or just people who wanted more...

    Ok, point taken! :lol: I guess my problem is that I feel a bit out of my comfort zone - I'm from South Africa and it feels like everything is done differently here. In SA, or at least in my area,...

    How to get rides as a broke student?

    I don't post here very often, but I'm looking for opinions from you all, since you seem like you give good advice :yes:

    I'm currently doing my PhD in Canada, and I'm from distant lands. Before I...

    Yeesh, you're describing my day! I'm coming out of lurking because it's so coincidental. I just got my results back for a thrombosis panel, and I have elevated factor VIII. My mother passed away last...

    Yeah, those horses were saints. Heck, I use a mounting block whenever possible even riding in a saddle.

    Thoughts? Has anyone seen or used this?

    Since I'm a Saffer, now living in Canada, feel free to send any questions my way :)

    In SA, Cape Town and surrounds are a must do. I'm not sure when you're going, though, but winter (June / July)...

    Sophie - yep it's a great city to bike in. When it's not winter... or early spring. When will this (bleep)ing snow go away anyway?!
    I can't wait for the summer and long bike rides along the canal!

    Ridethehide - yeah, I'd hate to drive in this city. Hell, I'd hate to own a car in this city! It's just not worth it. But it does limit the activities you can easily do. Did you ride while you lived...

    These are great ideas!
    I don't have a car, so the getting out to yards / rescue centers might be a problem. I'll look for rescues though and maybe contact them, they might have someone who goes out...
  16. What to do while taking a 'break' from riding?

    I'm in need of some great COTH opinions! The word 'break' in the title makes it seem as though I want to have a break from riding, but of course that isn't true. But for now, with school, finances,...

    I don't know why people think that you have to have been a BO to not be "that boarder". I've never owned or managed a barn. And it never stopped me from being damn grateful for the services I got....

    Riding in Calgary (Western? Reining?)

    I find myself in Calgary visiting family for 3 weeks. And I thought - what better to do than to try and find a place for a lesson... I've done showjumping forever, but have never even sat in a...

    Thanks everyone. I wish I had an animal to curl up with - but as a student it's just not feasible right now.
    All of you give completely valid advice, and I think I even *knew* last night that I...
