    I am also a Tele skier. Yes, it is much more difficult. It makes a blue slope into a black immediately. But, I don't do it for that reason. Tele skiing is like dancing. It is a way to express...

    With proper riding, a horse that leans is fairly easy to fix.

    Without stirrups is not nearly as effective as without hands. Without stirrup work can encourage people to grip too much with their knees. That breaks the lower leg away from the sides of the horse...

    First, I make sure the student has a SOLID lower leg that can stay at the girth and not fly back over the jump. Then, I know that they will be able to counterbalance the weight of their upper body...

    I like putting a rubber band (or hair tie) on the handle. I then put it around my middle finger. Then, if I need to flip it in my hand, I can flip it and not fear dropping it. Quick, easy and...

    F.I.T.S. have deerskin seats and are not horribly expensive. I love my Pikeurs, though. I sure wish Schumachers were still around!!

    I agree that placing poles, ESPECIALLY ones after a jump, can be very dangerous in a busy warm-up area. I totally agree with the ban.

    Do what you need at home and wean yourself from using them to...

    Do you have contact info on the hatmaker in your area? I don't mind shipping the hat to someone, as long as they know what they are doing.

    I need to restore a hunt derby

    Does anyone know of a company (preferably in the USA) who can restore my grandmother's old hunt derby? It needs a new ribbon around the brim, some minor reshaping and overall cleaning and dying.

    I understand what you are saying, but it blows out the detail on the contrast on the horse/rider, too. It creates a huge distraction, IMO. I would use PS to dim or diminish the background and leave...

    I will admit I didn't read all the responses, so I may be repeating things.

    The biggest difference I see between dressage and hunter lead change training is the use of a change in DIRECTION as a...

    Some overexposure problems. You ought to try a polarizing filter. There is a LOT of white in the backgrounds and the sand is highly reflective. Also, use photoshop to make the colors warmer. There...

    Well, hello!

    Sorry, I've tried to find out something about them, but their info is thin on the web.

    The saddle looks decent, though with more dressage trend than jump, IMO.

    NOT a typical "liberal" comment. I am liberal and an Obama fan. But almost as important is my love for the sport. As such, I am pleased about any talented horse. Yes, I can rant about this dollar or...

    I AGREE! "modern" dressage seems to not care if the haunch becomes disengaged as long as those front ends are so expressive.

    Sadly, I learned that a nice mom and pop type tack shop is closing their doors. They know that they will not be able to compete with Dover and decided to close. Just like the local store vs Wal mart....

    Unfortunately, you could take photos of most of the people in a show these days, and that's what you would see. So many riders, today, never learn to ride in real balance.
