    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't fly bonnets still technically NOT allowed unless the ground jury makes an exception?

    ^^^This. SO much this. The trend is not so much for the brim to point up, but for the WHOLE DAMN COVER to be tilted up. If you're only going to cover half you helmet, why not paint the thing and...

    You may want to keep in mind that many of the "custom" brands use essentially the same tree for every saddle. A shark fin wither likely needs a non standard tree as well. When you get a rep out ask...

    How should I clean a Bates Momentum?

    Specifically the seat. The Bates info I've found simply says not to use their leather products on the suede, but there's no info what to use (I assume this is because the Momentum no loger has suede...

    Well, It is actually cheap enough that resale shouldn't be too big an issue; even with the tear I would be able to get what I paid if it didn't work. And if I replace the seat eventually I could sell...

    I have a feeling the issue is a calfskin seat that has been ridden in. They seem to split in this location fairly often. I'm hoping it would be fairly stable, but I think a local leather repair place...

    Lol. It's right near the seam by the skirt. The nearest saddler is 300 miles away but I thought the local leather repair place could probably whip stitch it at least. I would think that that might...

    Tear in seat leather

    I'm considering buying a saddle with a tear in the seat. It's about 2" long and is what puts this saddle in my price range. The tear is along the edge where the seat meets the skirt. Has anyone NOT...

    I've yet to see any eq kid (even ones doing big eq) actually do dressage. They work plenty on flatwork, and while the exercises may even be the same what is expected of the horse is not.

    2" split in saddle seat. Big deal?

    Do splits in seat leather right near the skirt grow much? If you don't replace the seat how big a deal is the split regarding the usability of the saddle? I'm considering buying a Devoucoux Oldara...

    Good to know. I haven't even found much used under $1000. At least my mare has grown up to be a medium tree rather than the medium wide she used to be!

    Anyone tried the Dover Circuit Classic II?

    I'm looking for a saddle on a budget and like that this one has full grain leather flaps. Maybe it will be durable like my old stubben? If you've tried it, how did it sit on the horse? Straight or...

    Does anyone actually feed only one of their feeds? Every horse I've seen has gotten half of one and half of another (e.g. perfomix/strucomix senior, strucomix original/senior, pianissimo/strucomix...

    Mine often feels like I'm about to get punched in the stomach. Or I can feel myself fly up in the air.

    You see it at Prelim and above. I'm not sure how the ground line works from the horse's perspective though. I would think they can use proprioception to adjust for the water depth.

    Yeah, I wish I had pics, but I watched Kelty's fall from several angles (yay phone cameras?) and it looked like Max just thought he had room for another stride. I will say that the horse that won hit...

    There is no way an airbag can keep a 1200 pound object from injuring you when it falls on you at high speed. They can dissipate some force (and have been shown to in testing scenarios), but not that...

    I don't feed them. My horse has a salt block, which gets used more by the mini on the other side of the gate/wall than it does by her. My barn feeds Stress-Dex, which is ~70% sugar so I figure out of...
