    The Icon Flight I bought made my horse horribly sore, and was only a so-so fit for me. So YMMV, but it's far from the "ultimate in saddle design." In my experience, most of the people who claim that...

    I wouldn't touch a Custom, especially for a short back-I found them nightmarish to deal with, and was stuck with a $5k saddle that hurt my horse that I wound up selling at a huge loss. However, I...
  4. Kensington Soft Mesh fly sheet vs textilene

    The flies have already started up, and my poor horse is slowly being eaten alive. :( His schneiders fly sheet was attacked by mice-grrr-rendering it largely useless. I have the opportunity to get him...

    I hesitate to even get involved. But I can't help myself....wtf? Why have his toes been carved out, while literally everything else has been allowed to run amok?

    I've seen Leistners around as well, but had a hard time finding much info about them. I'll look into them more!

    Okay, so I have been wanting to invest in a set of really nice brushes for a long time. I'm finally able to splurge a bit, and am now on the hunt for brushes that will make both me and my big red...

    My Icon Flight from 2014 had all of these--particularly bad was the puckering at the cantle and in front of the blocks, the raw leather edges were less noticeable but there. I have a friend who had...

    I've never heard of the Schleese Diva, or anything like it. I'll ask my fitter friend and if I see Jochen again anytime soon I'll mention it, but that model hasn't popped up anywhere I've ever heard...

    I love the EasyBoot gloves, as they are by far the most lightweight, easy application, and low profile boots I've found. Unfortunately, they can be VERY finicky about fit! So it's imperative that...

    I expect my horse to be safe and sane inside and outside, alone or with others. Although my primary discipline and passion is dressage, I love to trail ride/hack out/do gallop sets where the footing...

    Pete Ramey uses synthetic wool cut outs he fashions from western saddle pads. Says they work the best of anything he's seen, which is a lot. He emphasized the synthetic though--the real stuff doesn't...

    What's your trick? How did you get so lucky?! I had almost the exact same experience with the exact same model....and am now sitting on a $5k (closer to $8k when you factor in the vet bills from a...

    I've ridden in several shows in my little Wintec. Nobody has said anything and I haven't been marked down because of it, as far as I know! If it sits you well and fits your horse, nobody cares.

    I would never, in a million years, touch another Custom Saddlery saddle, let alone work with one of their reps or their main office in Aiken. The saddles are beautiful, but IMO not beautiful enough...

    Wow--how bizarre. I wound up finding an Aramas that had been sitting in a small tack shop for a few years that worked for what I needed. The local tack shop I was working with never did hear back...

    Schleese and Albion are the two that come to mind, however jay makes a very good point above, that a saddle that is wide but ill-fitted might sit down on the spine.

    Having taken my TB barefoot after years in shoes, and done dressage and jump work with him, seeing improved movement and comfort for him, I'm of the mindset that it is silly to shoe a horse that is...

    What I really like about Schleese's thigh block setup is that the blocks are all velcro and screw in, so you have lots of choices. Their double flap saddles have more block options. Here is a chart...
