Here you go :)
I don't have any experience with Trilogy saddles, but wanted to mention that I don't think you need to limit yourself to a particular brand due to your build. If you are purchasing a new saddle you...
Bought the Fairfax and sadly it's hanging I my tack room....rubbed my horse raw in his arm pits. It is absolutely beautiful and well made...just not the right fit for him.
I hope Silverbridge who owns a Lippy will chime in...but it's my understanding they are a rare breed and the reason you don't see more is that there are so few. Of the Baroque breeds it seems that...
My dressage partner is an Arabian and is an unflappable as they come :cool:
Thank you so much for this!!!
I'm shedding a little tear...such a beautiful girth:no: Thank goodness for EBay.
No, I first tried the saddle in a 17" which was no good. Moving up a seat size to a 17 1/2 was the trick. Certain brands like Kieffer, and Passier would never be comfy for me...way too narrow no...
I think mixing it up is so important not only mentally but physically. I feel so sad for the horses that are drilled in the same arena doing the same exercises day after day..boring! I've seen...
I would agree with others that mention Dressage in Harmony by W. Zettl. It's a book I pull out the most when I need a refresher. Jane Savoie's Happy Horse Video series is also wonderful and if you...
I recently bought my horse a pricey Fairfax girth. It is the most gorgeous girth that will ever adorn my tack room wall since it rubs my horses armpits raw. It may have been a summer issue and will...
Big kudos to you for riding in a discipline that most suits your horse! I would echo what others have said and test/trial as many saddles as you can to see what works best for you and your horse. ...
Ughhh! Like sitting on a post. I ride in a Custom which is not a wide twist, but having the right seat size makes all the difference.
Flying in was easy for humans, but traveling for over 28 hours had several horses from AZ arrive with issues from shipping fever to dehydration. This is of course not uncommon, and not an AZ issue,...
It sounds like self doubt is plaguing your rides. Have confidence in yourself and don't automatically assume you made a mistake. :) Going into autopilot simply means you need to train your brain to...
I'm not surprised the stands are empty. The Finals doesn't seem to attract the heavy hitters of the dressage world that a CDI would. Is this show geared more for ammies and small tour open riders?
A saddle that for me put me in a forward balance was the Schleese Wave. I didn't realize how hard I had to fight to maintain an even balanced position until I got a Custom Icon.
There are a handful of people around here that offer services in body clipping, braiding and show grooming. Since AZ isn't really a Mecca for dressage shows they usually offer their services at...
I have to admit I really enjoy not doing the time change thing here in AZ. Having lived in the Midwest I do remember liking the fall back time change but hated losing an hour in the spring.
When visiting Arizona in the winter, you will immediately stand out as a tourist if you are wearing your summer shorts and flip flops while the rest of us locals are wearing our down vests and gloves...
My horse (an Arabian) and I received an invitation by placing for Second Level AA. I live in AZ and only show locally but was really thrilled to make the cut:)

Oh please, the greatest sin is seeing a gorgeous Equiline Shadbelly on a pretend dressage horse (show hack). :cool:
Got my order today...on time and no issues :)
