    Yes, that link is to the correct Dover half pad. You can modify just about any foam pad you want and put it in the Dover pad. I like that particular one because it is fairly thin and it will accept...

    Buy the riser. Also buy a Dover synthetic fleece half pad, the one with the velcro along the top. Remove foam from Dover pad.

    dags, thanks for the explanation of our outside leg! Helping to clear up a mystery...if we want the horse's inside hind to speed up, why are we using our outside leg?

    Here is the zip front Champion. The zipper is not as obvious as with the Under Armor one, but hey, back clasps show too!

    Yes, you can tell it's a zip up bra. Champion also makes a nice zip up with a smaller zipper. I'll try to find you a link.

    For the newer show shirts and the thinner sun shirts, I certainly want a thick enough bra, and sports bras fit the bill even though I am not "large" at all. For me, part of the down side of sports...

    Another option, especially if you get too much curl with the pelham, is a Myler D bit with the hooks. They are also "unconventional", but at a local show, a judge is unlikely to notice or care about...

    Half seat versus full seat idea is interesting. On landing, my trainer tells me to keep my hips close to the saddle. Not sit (I ride low level hunters), but stay close. It sure helps. The saddle...

    I have issues with my whole body leaning down and in on landing! My trainer's advice works for me in the hunters -- she tells me it is all about being straight, so no matter what lead you are on,...

    A year ago I was shopping and asked an A show trainer the same question. At least $50 K in Texas. I think they are even paying that for modified (2'6") horses here.

    Thank you so much everyone. These are great tips! I think some horses let us get away with being not straight. Then we ride one that it causes issues with, and problems arise!

    Maybe just do four or five flakes in a smaller container? I used a steam cleaner hooked into a plastic tub that was just about the right size for four or five flakes spread out a bit. I used the...

    If you need "L" angle iron, Home Depot has those in different lengths. I get the galvanized ones with the holes in them so installation is easy. I think it comes in up to 6' lengths, but you can...

    Exactly what NancyM said. I got one that was very snarky. Extremely food aggressive at feeding time. At first, I had to shove his tub in his stall with my foot. Very nasty every time I went into...

    Keeping horse straight over jump

    This is really just a problem, with one of mine, in a line. He lands into the line a little bit pointed to the right and on his right lead. Since he is not straight, both he and I do a little shift...

    I wear a 28 in TS. When I tried on the Pipers in 28, they seemed biggish, so I returned and got a 26. But the Pipers wash very well, and I throw them in my front loader with my regular wash and dry...

    Agree, Hands of a Hero is a nice looking and nice moving App. Would fit right into the h/j shows. Every time I go to the Hopes Creek website and look at the Hands of a Hero and All Hands on Zip...

    Get a thinline pad, the plain kind, the big one, and put it on your horse's bare back. Trace out "scallops" where his shoulders are. Be sure to pull it up off the withers a bit, as you would pull...

    OK you asked. I would never ever shoe a horse for movement or in any manner other than what his foot/conformation calls for for soundness.

    I already think we have too many hunters going with long...

    I try to use boots every trip. A vet told me once about a wreck in which the horse had on proper shipping boots, and although the horse was cut in other places, its legs were fine.

    The Be Nice halters, referred to in post 36, are great. Highly recommend. They run very small.
