    Scalping boots

    I'm looking for some help at getting scalping boots to stay on when your horse has non-traditional shoes. I thought I had a picture, but I'll do my best trying to describe...

  2. Otter Creek HT...can someone give me the rundown on the Novice course?

    Pretty self-explanatory. I'm looking at going to the August show since we had such a great weekend but am wondering what it's like. It's a 5 hour drive, so I'm a little hesitant.

    If you're going Training or above make sure you know damn well the dimensions of a 15 meter circle. Nothing like hearing the bell in the middle of a circle on an otherwise lovely test because it was...

    Are you in WI by chance?? If so, I plan on wearing a polo. I'm one of those weird people that finds the sun shirts to be about the same as any other shirt and don't stay cooler in them. If my collar...

    I agree. As long as he checks out physically I would invest in having your trainer put one or two very positive, forward shows on his belt. Yes, the issue is between the two of you, but that doesn't...

    Missing a fence happens to nearly everyone at one point or another, even the pro's. Hopefully it will be the last time, but more than likely it will not. :D

    Hmmm...what brand do you have? I have an older one (2009?) and a brand new one and I notice a difference between how hot the surfaces get as well. Not saying you have to go buy a brand new one (mine...

    If you are that worried, then find another horse to sit on, pronto. Perhaps contact the seller of the mare again and ask for a second ride. You may notice more flaws that you didn't pick up on the...

    It will take much longer for him to lose weight without any activity, just like humans. Can you add a lunging program, or long line him?

    Thanks! I grew up always wearing field boots and nobody ever said a word otherwise. I can't think of anyone I know who has dress boots, but I'm glad to know it wouldn't be weird!!

    I agree with all of your points, however I have seen and dealt with some VERY rude spectators (who are usually competitors just at a different level) who WILL. NOT. listen. I'm not known for...
  13. What to do with stretched out stirrup leathers?

    Ones that are not broken yet? I have a lovely pair of Gary Mundy leathers on my jump saddle that are unevenly stretched out, despite me trying to remember to swap them every few weeks. Apparently I...

    I used them when I was boot shopping a couple of years ago, but at the moment they don't have anything in my price point/size. The stretch DaVincis are on sale, but are either too small or too big....

    Show boots. Dress boots a no-no?

    I've read the rules, so I know there's nothing in writing saying I must have field boots, but am I going to look like a total dork in dress boots for dressage and SJ?

    Yes, I' vain. :lol:

    I am very light-sensitive, so try to wear sunglasses as much as possible when outdoors, but trying to keep glasses up while doing trot sets has been challenging!! I'm also using cheap off the rack...
