    Yaya: He "Used to be Black" :) I love all these suggestions. I may have to use a different name at each show to take advantage of all the terrific names you've all suggested!

    So far I'm leaning...

    Come Shine: Gracious. OK, you guys are too clever! That also spawns: Graceful!

    GG: He doesn't have a barn name.

    Oooh, I like Quicksilver, but my laidback guy is anything but "quick". I guess no one else would know, but I'd feel a little dishonest!

    Url Grey comes to mind. The "U" is on purpose - after his...

    Believe me, his reg. foreign name, which consists of several vowels and one consonant would NOT be helpful :)

    Of the 5 names in my OP, I'm leaning towards

    Pearl Jam
    Icy Hot
    Iron Man

    Gray horse show name..

    Next year I hope to start mini-eventing. I have a 15.3hh gray gelding with dark knees/hocks and a some dapples on his hindquarters. He has a darker gray mane/tail, so he is not a snow white gray yet....

  7. Feedback on the Thorowgood T8 jump or GP saddle?

    Just looking for all the feedback I can find on either the T8 Jump saddle or the T8 GP (general purpose) saddles by Thorowgood. They are the newer hybrid leather and synthetic saddle. No US retailer...

    Thanks Rainier! I will do that or at least get them both to compare. Thanks for that tip :)

    No, you're not being snarky at all. I've just started jumping again and can use my friend's Antares, though I cannot afford to get one for myself. Another gal has a Hampton Bay that I can borrow, but...

    Equibrit, I was told that "all purpose" saddles may as well be called "no purpose" saddles. That basically they were good for flatting or trail riding, but the flaps are too straight for jumping much...

    I am mainly a dressage rider, but used to do mini-events about 10 years ago. Several folks at my barn are getting into those, and it looked so fun I'm thinking about wading in again. But after riding...

    Thanks Crowne! It's helpful to know that about the Tekna panels. Scoopy or curvy panels will definitely "rock" on my horses straight back. Even just narrowing it down to Wintecs and Thorowgoods is...

    Thanks again for all the feedback. And thanks Bogie and TBchick for taking time to post your photos and information! I'm trying to avoid ordering 3+ saddles and shipping them back and forth to try,...

    Bogie, what is different about the newer Wintec Pro Jump that you don't like? And how would I know an old-style one? Yes, I am thinking that my Bates and the Wintec will be built on similar...

    I meant to say that I have nice leather dressage saddle since that is my main discipline, so opting for a synthetic jump saddle for occasional jump schooling or a local mini-event makes sense...
  17. Thorowgood - Tekna - Wintec jump saddles. WWYD??

    After more budget considerations, which of the above synthetic saddle brands would you choose for low level eventing/jumping (2'6" or lower)?? Between the adjustable trees and low maintenance...

    Big_Grey_Hunter, I am going to openly plagiarize your correct and succinct description of why NOT to ride with loose/open fingers!! I always use the comparison that soft, open fingers are to rein...

    Thanks for everyone's imput. I ride quite a few horses for clients and often I find they put me in a chair seat if the stirrups are too SHORT. Most people jump in too short a stirrup, thinking it's...

    Jump saddle with dressage balance?

    Hey folks, I may start doing some low-level jumping in the ring and XC. I borrowed a saddle and felt it put me in a chair seat. I already need to resist the urge to jump ahead, but a saddle with the...

    Thanks for the continued good ideas and suggestions. I suggested dropped nosebands to about 3 of my students over the last few years who's horses had minor "mouth issues". They were a bit dubious in...

    Frankly I don't think clinicing with 4-6 other riders in a group is very productive. But that's the only way our barn can afford this $$$ BNT's fee. There's not a lot of personal attention and...

    Come Shine, I think you've given the most succinct suggestion so far! I also like the fact that all the other posters said to go in what the mare likes, and if we need to change it, then do so...but...

    Thanks for your quick replies! You and I are on the same page about changing out tack. When I heard that this clinician has criticized drop nosebands before, I asked "why?" The people who've ridden...
  25. Anticipating a tack critique at BNT clinic. WWYD??

    My student started leasing a sensitive horse that has changed hands a few times and hasn't had the best or most consistent training last couple years. But this student is patient, kind and a good...
