    I LOVE this bit so much that after I bought one and tried it on my fussy Lipizzan mare, I bought 2 more for my other guys. My upper level horse has never gone so well, he is so much more steady and...

    I only wear Tropical Riders Enduracool or Tropix at home, for clinics I wear their show breeches or I like the Pipers, too, but you can't beat the TR for comfort, lightweight and fit.

    I contacted Hastilow U.K. on Facebook, and they answered my questions, but said I should contact my local fitter (who can't fit a saddle to save her life). I have two of the Hastilow Concept...

    I also found that the Ecogold conformed well to the horse's back, didn't change the fit of the saddle too much as it's not super bulky and didn't move around at all.

    I have had a thinline pad, but didn't really care for the way it fit. Recently I bought a used Ecogold pad, and my horse seemed to love the cushioning on his back, and it cushioned the ride for me as...

    I went through over 70-80 saddles for my uber wide, curvy backed pony Lipizzaner pony mare. Anything with a hoop tree was too wide of a twist for me.I found a Kent and Masters Cob dressage that has a...

    I just wanted to update everyone on my saddle situation. After looking into all the option, and the fact that many saddles just weren't easily available to me. I had a lightbulb moment. I really...

    He was examined from stem to stern by a previous owner, they covered all the bases. I don't believe it is physical now after being around him, I think it's just behavioral. He isn't even scared when...

    I do agree with you all about getting rewarding a horse when they have done well, which is what I did in getting off once he felt soft and responsive and obedient. Normally I would've ended my...

    At this point, my trainer is his last chance. I don't want to put him with anyone locally and have them fail or possibly screw him up worse. He is an absolutely lovely horse to have around, and...

    There are not really any independent saddle fitters, although I've had Gary Severson out to flock some of my saddles, but he hasn't really made any suggestions of what saddles would work better. I...

    Yes, he bolted in a pelham, at that point I didn't know which reins I was pulling on, I think I would've been better in a regular snaffle as I could've jerked his head up. I am not real familiar with...

    Yes, unfortunately it's not the update I wanted to post. I did a ton of work with him on the ground, lots of respect groundwork, desensitizing, despooking, etc. He is a very bright, enjoyable, sweet...

    Manni01, I don't believe we have a Devoucoux fitter anywhere nearby. I wouldn't mind sitting in one to give it a try. I forgot to mention that I also tried Verhan, and Prestige, but I don't seem to...

    Jay, I really didn't care for the Celeste as the seat is a bit too wide and flat for me, I typically like saddles that have a little bit of a built up waist so that my hips don't have to open so wide...

    I have had Thornhills, including the Vienna, which has more of a hoop tree. I tried a Duett but the panels were way too long and the seat was too hard and flat for me.

    I have a Kent and Masters Cob dressage for my 14.1h Lipizzan mare. They have adjustable gullet plates, and the flocking is wool, so can be fitted to the horse. It has a nice narrow twist, very...
