    I think that in this case it's a black and white issue. Research has been done and proven that horses struggle over a certain percentage of body weight. Especially with the lesson horse, which...

    Haha, good question. We did intro C and I wasn't able to get the canter so got four 0s. Plus pony was pretty much sideways the whole time and we never got completely to one end of the arena. It was a...

    This is me too, I like hot, forward, sensitive, but NOT spooky. I've handled it with horses before but never again. I also really like a quiet horse on the ground. My current horse tends to be hotter...

    For me it would be all about the saddle pads. I've got a huge saddle pad addiction and while they are more expensive over there they also have so many more cool options than we do.

    That might just...

    I totally agree, dressage can be very traditional which is part of what I love about it, but I also love that I can do little things with my outfit or saddle pad to really be me. I'm glad that you...

    I love my Walsh halter as well. Definitely an investment though, I think mine was around $90 but it's going strong after 4 years and is currently being used for daily turnout.

    I'm riding my young horse in a Micklem, which is a good fit for her, and I clearly felt a difference when I first put it on her. I'm not good enough to explain what the difference was :lol: but she...

    I love all of it honestly except for the shiny shad (I feel that one is just distracting personally) but I do like the ability to customize what I'm wearing. With that said, I have a horse that's...

    I also have never owned a dressage horse and initially my 13.1 hand pony was completely unsuitable for dressage. Now after weekly instruction and lots of work (I think it's fun so it doesn't feel...
