  1. sadd

    The saddle is a loan, not for sale, and the flap length is too short (although I'd likely buy it anyway if it was for sale).

  3. Albion SLK "narrow seat" option -- how hard to find?

    Hi,

    I tried an Albion SLK years ago and it was not for me. Recently I rode in a friends SLK with the Narrow Seat (NS) option -- a whole different feel and now I'm in the market for a used one.

  8. Hotter-type horses, and hotness in general

    Can a person learn to ride a hotter horse? Can a hotter type learn to accept "mistakes", or at least to be more accepting of leg and seat?

    I rode without one at a schooling show years ago (2001?) and the judge made a fuss -- bigger fuss than warranted IMHO. My horse had undergone sinus surgery and I rode without it long after he...

    sad indeed

    As mentioned previously:

    --the unsoundness is not consistent -- stretches of good work and progress, but then stretches of downtime, more than you want to see.
