    If you are getting fit for a competition sometimes there is no choice. Dry the saddle/girth area as well as possible, cringe as you slip a bridle on that barely dry head, hope your reins don't get...

    Considering the placement of the camera, it seems more as though it is security for when you are not in that area. Times such as when you pick up supplies or are in bed asleep.

    Before I made any decision I would have it looked at by a saddler to assure your self that the tree is indeed broken. If it is broken, depending on where and how, it can possibly be fixed.

    If a move is impossible for you to make, it is. There is no way your trainer has a right to be annoyed or offended.
