    Here's Rodrigo's comments on the situation - link and below, Google Translate's take on the article. Even allowing for something to be lost in the translation, it's interesting reading.

    Congratulations! It is the best feeling when someone you really admire tells you that you've got it right. Hold on to that feeling for the days when you're being too hard on yourself!

    Are you maybe thinking of demo models? I managed to find a beautiful Voltaire that fits my husband as if it was built for him, but because it was a demo saddle, we were able to buy it for much less...

    Was it the thread about Katie Prudent's son Adam that you're remembering, findeight?

    My horses go in cheap Lettia CoolMax girths to school, and have a nice Arc de Triomphe girth for going out in public. I see no point in using the expensive girth on a day-to-day basis when the...

    The dark shirts never really caught on here in Ontario, even when everyone was wearing colour. Most stuck to pastels or at least not dark colours. Wear it if you'd like (you're doing the Trillium...

    I have taken my nice hunter to two of his clinics (a one-day and a three-day), and would again in a heart beat! He was very fair with us with regards to his expectations.

    The only horse I have seen do that in person was my poor pony during a horrific colic. At first I thought he was cast, but upon rolling him to his side, he just slowly turned onto his back again in...

    I never put mine up on the saddles that have the option, but can see it be annoying if it allows the leather to actually drop off. Can you wrap a braiding elastic around the end to keep things in...

    There are lots of lovely young horses hiding at smaller farms too. If you're comfortable posting a geographical area that you'd prefer to visit, and maybe what you're looking to do with the...

    You might be able to wrap it in latex to get a little more use out of it. If you're going to throw it out, try cutting the rubber off completely first and see if it has use as a bare metal bit maybe?

    Inclined - That's a nice way to think about it, a saddle retirement! It's was Nana's saddle, now it's a "Nana saddle." :)

    Me! I have a pair each in black and brown. Every once in a while, I feel a bit sorry for myself that they're not as tight and tapered as the modern zip up boots, then I see a zipper break and feel...

    She's still too little to get on it by herself, but seems to enjoy being sat on it! :)

    And are her issues something she is likely to pass on, or more so related to accident/injury/mismanagement?

    It's a little old Biem Kloster, which is a company that was eventually taken over by Courbette. I had a local carpenter make the rocker :)

    This is what I had made with a little old saddle - rocking horse. It was my grandmother's saddle, and although it is in wonderful condition, it is just so dated that it really wasn't going to see a...

    You can also easily have the buckles moved on a slightly-too-big bridle to create a perfect fit. I did that for one of mine that was in between pony and cob sizes, and was very happy. It was...

    I also wonder about hormones - lots of mares will get a little loopy when they begin to cycle again in the spring, and some will even get sore through their backs. We've got one in the barn who MUST...

    If the manes aren't thick and the horses are braided to show, then just pull them nicely from the correct side (or risk making your braider crazy!) and don't worry. If they need to look nice without...

    If he was fit before the surgery and seems to be recovering well, I would think that you might be fine to aim for something the end of the summer? I didn't get the opportunity to rehab my pony...

    There are also leather bits with a nylon cord or thick metal wire through the centre to be safe, just in case the leather did snap or wear through. :)
