    Well, I would have started today, except while I was riding I conveniently forgot all about dropping my stirrups! Maybe I'll remember tomorrow, then...

    I won't be taking the stirrups off my saddle, but I do plan to drop them every ride and work towards a better seat. Which will also help me work towards getting over my fears (bad fall a while ago)....

    I've got an Albion that no one else will sit in and a Smith Worthington that a friend sold to me because it felt to her like sitting on the wide side of a two-by-four. It did put me in an unfortunate...

    Last time I had Gina Perelli out I told her I wasn't interested in a Steubben and then she had me try three Steubbens. I'd used her before and liked her.

    I've used Susey Coffey as well, and...

    I'd love to have brown tack for my spotted chestnut roan. Of course, I decided this after having black tack for years.

    Well, I'm another off-species. And to boot his horse half is Appaloosa. My LONG term goal is Second Level, he could get me there some day.

    Please forgive the terrible riding, I have recently had a...

    I'm waiting for the American Mule Association to get back to me with a "logo" I can embroider on my saddle pads. I'm not holding my breath...

    I just got the Tredstep Donatello Plus boots. I have a short (14") and wide (17.5-18") calf. They are weird in that they are very tight from ankle to lower calf, and comfortably loose above that. I...

    While I'm out of commission, my trainer's riding my guy, and she's working mostly on jumping with him. (He's a cautious animal, and I'm a timid rider, and neither of us knew how to jump. So now one...

    I'm lucky in that (usually) my guy is a "stop and let him look at it" type. I head right for the judge when I enter the ring (before the bell), stop and let him look, say hi and my number to the...

    Granted, it was a schooling show, and I'm the opposite of conservative (I ride an Appy mule fercrissake), but I wore a navy-and-lime-green-with-polka-dots belt. Would do again.

    ETA: And I guess...

    I board/ride at Allan & Clover in Brandywine. I love Sam and Jennifer.

    Also, you don't have to be a MDCTA member to get their emails. I don't even know how I got on their list, but it's where...

    Well, I forgot a girth one show when I was a kid, and my little Arab required a teeny girth. I sat in the truck and BAWLED, because my life was RUINED, my mom asked around and found someone with a...

    I wear an air vest w/o a hard shell all the time. I'm a dressage rider, I don't own a hard vest. I wear it when I jump or ride outside.

    I've fallen wearing it two or three times. I fit it as...

    Well, you all sure don't look weenie compared to me! I'm a dressage rider who doesn't jump outdoors yet, or jump anything taller than say 15 inches... But two weeks ago we dressed up and played...

    Poles. Or even better, jumps. Beastie loves it.

    He also loved playing in the water obstacle at a local Horse Trials last weekend. LOVED it. The bicyclists in the bushes, not so much!

    I agree - it's like a hillock or a ball or whatever just pops up under my saddle. I've only felt it for a few strides at a time, mostly because I get all wide-eyed in shock and fall apart while...

    My guy has this same bit. And the version with hooks for jumping/trail. He liked it much better than the other bits I'd tried before this one (single joint baucher, French link full cheek). I tried...

    A crowd from my barn went and had a great time - I've only heard wonderful things about Marlborough. I might even go the 5th, if only to play in the water or *maybe* follow someone over some actual...
