    My pony tends towards being lazy and behind the leg, and uses contact as an excuse to not go forward, and for that reason I've learned to warm up WITH contact. Not all the way up in a working frame,...

    Definitely don't NEED a stock! I came to eventing from hunterland, and show dressage in my hunt coat and white hunter-style show shirt. No one's ever given me points off. ;)

    The TS also do not have any stretch whatsoever in the waistband. I love the Trophies, but the TS dig into my hipbones and are super uncomfortable! I would size up in the TS for comfort.

    I have one and use HSLC, and no weird reactions or anything! It does a nice job cleaning the white cantle and keeping it white, actually. :)

    I also have a freakishly-tiny head (6 3/4 helmet) and short hair (chin length) and LOVE the RWR nets! To use regular hairnets I need to use a stretchy headband, hair elastic, and 2 hairnets. The RWR...

    The TSF girth is far and away MUCH softer and more flexible than any other leather girth I've seen. It does come in an impossibly small box, as another poster said! I would say that it's just about...

    I have a 14.1 GRP that wears 12" in front and 14" in the back, BUT I use pony standing wraps on top - a lot less bulky once you figure out how to wrap with them.

    I think all skullcaps look dumb... sorry! I run XC in my GPA and will do so forever! My hunter-land fashion sensibilities die hard. ;)

    My GRP came to me as Caradino - that's both his USEF registered name and his name with the Weser-Ems registry. I think it's pretty so I didn't change it! His barn name is Dino.
