    Thanks that is really helpful. My horse is a similar shape to yours. The Albion rep recommended I purchase the slk Ultima which is an excellent fit to this horse. Then I saw this used Platinum Ultima...

    By flat I mean that behind the withers, from the front to back of the horse, her back is like a straight line. There is no curve or dip to her back. The saddle is priced low enough that I am fairly...

    Totally agree with Daisyeq. I wear my jacket even if it is waived. I stick it on right before I go in the ring. If it's too hot to wear a jacket for 5 minutes, then it probably too hot too ride.

    I think the AQHA has a pretty nice logo already doesn't it? The one you posted is very pretty but I think the kwpn already has a similar crown logo

    It's a cool idea but didn't come off quite right. The music was great and CR is a beautiful rider. But there was this slightly weird sexual connotation to it that I found a bit creepy. It was the...

    Specifically, my issue is that I find his leg to be very overactive/busy. Other than that I think he's a lovely rider. His horses go beautifully for him. Rosemunde is one of my favorites to watch. He...

    I never said that he wasn't a great rider. Nor did I ever say that all competition riders are evil. But watch any video of him riding and don't tell me that his leg is not more bouncy and active in...

    I'm probably going to make myself immensely unpopular here but I wasn't all that surprised. I've always thought that he has a surprisingly busy leg for a rider of his caliber. That said the horses ...

    I have the ones from smart pak in brown. I wouldn't buy them again. The leather is buttery soft and easy to break in but they are wearing out very quickly. Also the sizing chart was WAY off and the...

    How about Connaiseur? (Con Amore/Donnerhall). He's got the Donnerhall blood and the jumping blood that you desire, plus he's available fresh.

    I'm curious why you are seeking such a high concentration of Donnerhall blood? He is an amazing stallion and has many fine qualities to offer. However, you mention you'd like a prettier head and that...
