    Luckily for me, my partner is a huntsman so of course we have the pack of hounds at home here. My mule sees a lot of them, and I make a point of being with him in the paddock when "himself" walks...

    A good friend of mine, who is a Grand Prix dressage rider, trialed them when in Ireland. She speaks highly of them and said there is, if anything, more feedback from the horse with a BUA saddle. I...

    Surely there wouldn't be any curb action with no curb chain? Perhaps try her with one and see if the different action helps?

    I have the waxed brown Bromonts and just love them! I get so many comments on them out hunting. Can't rave about them enough. And I love the suede on the inside leg. :)

    We have 2 doctors, 2 ED nurses, and a paramedic who hunt with us - so a fall out hunting is probably the safest fall you can have! One of the ED nurses always has a first aid kit with her on the...

    Nobody here takes a blind bit of notice of bridles on the hunt field! I guess anything with even a bit of "bling"catches my eye, but nobody else would care in the slightest.

    Sparky Boy - those plaits (braids) are the stock standard style of plaiting manes here in New Zealand. Anything else is considered "different". =)

    My partner is huntsman here, and once hunting starts, our horses only get ridden twice a week - on hunt days. So long as they are fit to start with, that is easily enough to keep them that way. :)

    Whilst hunting in Australia the (female) master and I both "needed to go" and since not much was happening with hounds at that moment, we moved aside into a bit of brush and down-trousered. Whilst...

    In Ireland, many female Masters wear blue coats instead of scarlet. :)

    Here shaped saddle blankets are almost unheard of in the hunt field. Most hunts have their own saddle blankets which you can buy, and they are all square, with a large pocket and the hunt logo on it.

    All very well for you lot! :winkgrin: Our hunters' shoes have just been pulled off and they and our hounds are on holiday til November. I'll have to do my summer hunting through you. :)
