    I have the oxblood vintage leather for one of my saddles. It's like a chestnut/medium brown with a slight reddish tint. I don't think it's too red.
    Here is a pic of my horse with his oxblood...

    I'm betting the trainer doesn't even know that the OP feels slighted in attention. If OP is fox hunting on weekends then she likely isn't participating in the barn competition schedule, etc. Which is...

    I had a blast last year with just me and my Appy... I went to shows mostly alone and just with the one horse, and we just had so much fun. We bonded a lot and I...

    When he was off on the flexions though, you said in a previous post he trotted out of it after a few steps, right?

    Confused. Does he appear lame before you do all these flexions and lunging?

    I'd give him some time off, tend to his feet and possibly get some body work done. He hasn't been off the track long...

    If he responds to you stopping and patting and talking to him then I would do that as much as possible for now. I think that is quite sensible in a horse - to stop, assess, give value to riders...

    I've found it very hard to get any bites on the pony (with experience) that I've been trying to sell. If you find you have good results at a particular site, please update the thread!

    Since this is temporary (you are waiting on your new saddle...)

    I would ride in whatever manner is best for the horses development and training.

    I have RA and it effecting my feet. I switched to wide track composites with the cheese grater pads. I can easily keep my stirrups while putting less weight on them and the wider track disperses the...

    I cannot imagine how bored and sour my horses would get if they were only ridden in rings all the time and doing only dressage/flat work.

    So it sounds like the jumps aren't the issue, but it's the canter. I'm betting you'll come up against this issue in your dressage as well. And perhaps you'll be able to overcome it and it'll solve it...

    I ride a pinto and an appy... both unregistered. We show at Training level but school some 1st and 2nd stuff. They could probably show those levels with another rider.

    The Kerrits Flex Tights are a lot more breathable than the Sit Tights. The Crossovers are also nice... but the Flex Tights are the coolest and most breathable.
