    Look further down your arms as well. If you're bending your wrists instead of keeping them straight, your elbows will pop out. Sometimes fixing the root cause is much easier than trying to force...

    Nothing useful to add, but wow, she sure reminds me a lot of my mare! They have very similar faces and expressions. :) Tea

    You could try fixing this over poles, as well. Canter a pole, then transition to trot afterwards. Mix it up too, trotting the poles, then cantering. I spent an entire winter using poles to fix my...

    The Nunn Finer tack, although not a go-to brand for the hunter ring, is really nice stuff! I think you'll be quite happy with your new bridle. :)

    Or you can buy a big bridle, then get a good saddler to move the buckles on the pieces you need to have shorter. In the end, it will likely be cheaper than buying two bridles to make one that fits,...

    I checked in way back towards the start of this thread, and have been intermittently following since. Baby arrived a whole month early, April 18, which was a bit of a shock for her Dad and I, since...

    If you're closer to the London direction, Taylor Made Too does excellent work. I would trust them with any of my tack!

    For what it's worth, I would suggest ordering an over size bridle, then taking it to a good saddler to have the length shortened. I had a 14.3 hh connie/TB who was between pony and cob sizes, so...

    To add to the confusion of trying to date pictures based on attire, there are those of us that insist on wearing vintage things! :D I've got a jacket that belonged to my grandmother that I wear...

    The great thing about a Double D trailer is that you can fit a much bigger pair of horses in one than you can those little A trailers!

    My Dad came off his mare and fractured his tibial plateau two years ago, shearing off the posterior portion and requiring pinning to stick it all back together again. He had more issues with the...

    If Armour-All doesn't do the trick, take them into any place that sells products to make cars shiny, and I'm sure they can suggest something. :)

    Are there any rules in the US concerning soundness of eye in the hunter ring? The Equine Canada rule is that, "Horses must be serviceably sound in eye, wind and limb," (G 406.2) which...

    I'm with those who don't jump many fences before heading into the ring. I do a nice flat, jump one or two just to see how my mare is feeling, then either walk until it's our turn if she's settled,...

    If you're not determined to climb aboard, then "country chic" might work well. Well cut jeans, nice boots, a blouse and a fitted jacket of some sort?

    If you really get stuck, any one who does decent quality leather work could easily make you a pair.
