    asterix - how would you say they fit in terms of how high they are on the leg? My youngster has VERY short front cannons, her rear ones are longer (and she could probably wear a medium behind), but I...

    Thanks, reefy - the description of the NON faux lambskin is that it's "soft and supple and will mold to your body like a glove" (and that it's thinner than the deerskin); it doesn't sound like the...

    I LOVE these ideas, how inspired! :D

    As an older person (and a drinker), I would love it if they were to offer such things in Area 2.

    Since I now am bringing along a homebred baby as my body...

    Yup, looking for next year so there's plenty of time to make a decision :)

    Interesting. I'm reading some reviews and there are definitely "fit differences" based on the horse's conformation (which of course I knew ;) ), but it does pay to read how the different sheets hold...

    A student just sent me this last night! Wowsa!

    Anybody got a cool 4.5 mil lying around?

    I wonder what's up...details, anyone?

    Dang, that's an incredible price for a Rambo :eek:

    *sigh*, yeah, even with the Rambo being a "big tent", I doubt a 72 would be anywhere near long enough.

    Thanks to everyone for all the input,...

    75 or 76. Horse in question is a 15.1 hand long backed 4 year old WB, who is built more like a Morgan than a TB; she has a nicely laid-back shoulder but is not very wide in the chest, not much of a...

    A spin on this: years ago my DH suggested that I videotape the course as I walked it, then watch the video as many times as I needed to in order to get it "down cold." When he has been with me, he...
  13. Tropical Rider breeches, anyone have the Simulara Lambskin version?

    I need to replace my worn out older models (deerskin extended patch), and was looking at their website, saw this "new" Simulara Lambskin and wondered what that was all about.

    "Simulara" meaning...

    "Pre-hydrate."

    I read this as a tip (somewhere) before my last HT in 2010 - going Prelim in mid-July.

    You drink a liter of water/Gatorade (mixed as 3 parts water to 1 part Gatorade - I use the...

    Thanks all :)

    She is looking online as well as at the usual consignment shops in our neck of the woods, so I appreciate the suggestions.

  18. Good mid-priced jump saddles for a petite rider on a TB with withers

    He takes a medium tree, and a fairly uncomplicated fit :) She is 5'0".

    A saddle fitter (County rep) has seen the horse and tried some saddles on him, the one that fit the rider best was a 5K...
  19. Fly sheets, again! Any on sale anywhere? (I know, I know...)

    I may just wait for the Dover Tent Sale, but thought I would post on the off chance that someone is offering a sale, somewhere.

    It is the very real contempt and condescension which is unnecessary and gratuitous, here. This attitude is not "educating" anyone, it is simply insults and spleen venting..

    You can try the Mare Magic, though I would suggest ordering raspberry leaves in bulk instead - quite reasonably priced compared to actual "Mare Magic."

    It couldn't hurt, and if you see a...
