    This was my post and the quote you used was not complete. The next sentence of the statement said that I felt I SHOULD give her something. The quick version of this is I was told she wanted riding...

    You know, I'm not exactly sure. She talked to my trainer (not me) and from what I understood at first, she was looking for extra riding time. Then a few weeks later my instructor was going out of...

    I very much appreciate her time and feel that she has helped my horse. Do I feel that she has helped so much that she should charge me what a professional does? No, I do not. Do I feel I should...

    Thanks- I had the same thought, but didn't want to jump to conclusions either. This person is nice, but most likely took offense when I started asking questions. No ill will was intended, I'm just...

    Paying an ammie to school your horse

    Wondering if this is typical in the dressage community. An ammie dressage rider schooled my hunter a few times, then started to ask to be paid the same amount that my trainer makes when he rides my...

  13. Calling all Maryland riders- need your help!

    Several years ago I took a chance on importing a really nice young gelding from Germany for the hunters. Fast forward now three years, and I hit the jackpot on his ammie friendliness, looks, and...

    Thanks, BAC and lando. It's good to know anecdotes of success. While I'd have no problem using the bridle to school at home, my horse is a hunter and I'm afraid that the unconventional look of it...

  16. Dy'on Difference Bridle for Sensitive Poll?

    I am guessing this is a long shot, but I was wondering if anyone here has had success using the Dy'on Difference bridle--or something like it--for a horse with poll sensitivity. My vet swears up and...

    This is a great list. I'd also add Allie Panetta Show Stables/ Walnut Pond Farm to the list. Located next to ESP in Brookeville with excellent care and an indoor.

    I think a lot of people go through exactly what you are experiencing now. It's hard, but you aren't alone. Last summer I switched trainers and arrived at my new barn with a lot of mental baggage....

    I won't talk you out of it either, as I just talked myself into getting one! I had a used one on trial and adored the fit for my horse and the balance for me. I would have snapped the saddle up if it...

    Totally agreed-- it's interesting though, my trainer's Bruno Delgrange fits my horse just fine. I rode in her saddle and didn't feel the same "swing" that I did in the Tad Coffin.
