    Thanks, BAC and lando. It's good to know anecdotes of success. While I'd have no problem using the bridle to school at home, my horse is a hunter and I'm afraid that the unconventional look of it...

    Thanks, Copilot!
  3. Dy'on Difference Bridle for Sensitive Poll?

    I am guessing this is a long shot, but I was wondering if anyone here has had success using the Dy'on Difference bridle--or something like it--for a horse with poll sensitivity. My vet swears up and...

    This is a great list. I'd also add Allie Panetta Show Stables/ Walnut Pond Farm to the list. Located next to ESP in Brookeville with excellent care and an indoor.

    I think a lot of people go through exactly what you are experiencing now. It's hard, but you aren't alone. Last summer I switched trainers and arrived at my new barn with a lot of mental baggage....

    I won't talk you out of it either, as I just talked myself into getting one! I had a used one on trial and adored the fit for my horse and the balance for me. I would have snapped the saddle up if it...

    ^This. I just sold my Childeric in two weeks through Rachel at iselltack. But, the saddle was in excellent condition and priced fairly. Rachel took good pictures and got it on her website quickly. Of...

    Last year I purchased a Rambo Wug lightweight blanket. It wore like iron, but when the blanket cleaners washed it at the end of the season, the waterproofing had worn off. I called the retailer,...

    Dreamer, where are you located? In DC, MD, or VA? Important detail that would help us point you in the right direction. Traffic around here is horrendous, if you're on the north side of DC,...

    Thanks everyone for sharing all your experiences- it's useful to hear about customer service and quality, knowing that not all saddles fit all horses and not everyone likes the same style of saddle. ...

    Totally agreed-- it's interesting though, my trainer's Bruno Delgrange fits my horse just fine. I rode in her saddle and didn't feel the same "swing" that I did in the Tad Coffin.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback, good and bad. The saddles are too expensive to have rose colored glasses going into the process.

    My experience this past week was more like supernatural's-- I...

    Opinions on Tad Coffin Saddles?

    Hi all,

    My growing, high withered horse no longer fits into my current saddle. I was sold on another brand until I tried a used Tad Coffin this week- the seat was flatter than I am used to, but...

    I tried a used Tad tonight. The flap is marked 8075X- so does the X indicate a wide tree?

    Sad to say this is the situation I am in. I bought a gently used Childeric Model M a few years ago and absolutely love it. My new horse has a moderate to high wither- when we start out for a ride,...

    Walnut Pond Farm is an excellent choice- professionally run, well kept school horses, and two trainers- Kara Listrani and Allie Panetta. Located in Brookeville- an easy drive from Columbia.

    Since you appear to be in PA, have you looked at what Walk the Line LLC has? Alan Lohman in MD has several nice horses available as well.

  19. Determining age for young hunter class

    A friend suggested I enter my horse in the young hunters next summer at Upperville, but it is only open to 3 and 4 year olds. My horse will turn 5 about a month before the show. Would it be correct...

    I believe when I checked Meadowbrook out close to 10 years ago their per lesson price was well above $50 then. Worth a call though.

    Most of your best bets are probably in the Poolesville area. ...

    I think they are pretty similar, but have had a few improvements. I just bought a new Wug sheet and noticed that there is an extra front closure and the tail cord has changed. Overall fit seems about...

    I have one of each, although the Oakcroft is a wooden trunk and not vinyl. Both trunks are very nice, but overall the quality of the McGuinn is better. Everything seems to be reinforced better and...

    This exactly. Unless you have a nice savings cushion, insurance gives you more peace of mind that you won't be forced to make a tough decision. I had my previous horse insured and have my horse now...
