    I really appreciate everybody's responses here. I'm working with a rheumatologist now to diagnose some sort of auto-inflammatory arthritis - either RA or a spondyloarthropathy (an evil cousin to...

    I'm a veteran of back problems (had fusion L4-S1 last September). I had a Stubben Genesis CS with the Biomex seat, and I loved that saddle. It put me in a great position, was secure, and the Biomex...

    I also have the Ottavianos and love them. When boot shopping I tried the Tredsteps, Sergios, and the DeNiro's, and the DeNiro's were by far the nicest boot.

    It does look like the Salento's...

    I have a horse who is a windsucker (the evil cousin of cribbing). It was bad enough in his younger days that he went through three (yes, three!) colic surgeries prior to being retired from the AA...

    I have the Ottaviano field boots, and they fit like a glove! I needed an XS calf and 1-X on the height. The drop has been minimal, maybe half an inch. I have little skinny ankles, and these boots...

    This was me, up until September. The injections kept the surgeon at bay for about 6 years. I had a series of them (the first doctor I went to wasn't injecting at the right level), and I was good...

    In all my years of showing - since 1971 - I've only *once* seen a rider not used because of her attire. It was at a summer show and it was over 90 degrees. Jackets had been waived. The rider in...
