    Pictures opened fine for me. Also, uck.

    So sorry you had to deal with that, and so sorry to your boy also. They do make some awfully bad decisions sometimes . . . :(

    If you can find them, Centaur makes a XXL bell boot. Roxie has big feet but the Davis bell boots were enormous on her. The XXL Dover dressage/turnout boots fit her huge cannon bones, and so do the...

    This.

    I had this exact experience, only it was a degenerating hind suspensory instead of bone chips. I posted about it on COTH.

    I learned a valuable lesson in a couple of ways--not only to not...

    I have a friend with one of those (Custom Saddlery) who loves hers. Hers is much more curvy though--it fits her typical high-withered TB. What year is yours?

    Awesome. All great suggestions!

    I have had Thorowgoods in the past. I loved the High Wither on my last TB. The twist on the Broadback was far far too wide for my comfort. Guess it might be time to...

    Wait--Jay is female??? My mind is officially blown! :D Thanks everyone for the input and suggestions! I will sit in as many dressage saddles as I can, but I live in English saddle wasteland. My...

    She doesn't have any dry spots.

    I will get some additional shots today. Thanks for the advice! The front gussetted saddles i have tried on her before do not work at all--the gusset ends up being...
  10. Saddle suggestions for the big shoulder, average wither to short/flat back pony

    I am so sorry if this exact question has been asked, but I'm not great at searching, so here we go!

    My 14 hand Heinz 57 pony has radically changed shape since she has gone into regular work. She...

    Following! Because I agree--the rise is much too low
  13. Love this. Lots of truth here! :)

    Thanks for all the advice and suggestions!

    I had not even thought about the potential liability issue. A lot of the suggestions here make really good sense, so what we have elected to do is that...
  15. Bartering use of my jumps in exchange for lessons

    My search function wasn't working properly, so I apologize if this topic has already been addressed.

    A friend of mine who has been training for years on the East Coast has come back to Washington...

    My filly was getting sore in her "armpits" too. Switching from a conventional girth to a center-elastic girth helped us immensely.

    I buy good deals whether I need them or not. :) I'm just fortunate this girth works on my pony!

    I've been sitting the trot for short periods (1 min or so) on my 3.5 year old pony, at my trainer's direction. She has 60ish rides right now, and has been fine with it. I am lightly sitting the...

    Mine looks closer to the Custom Saddlery one that was mentioned above:
    http://www.mysaddle.com/MYSADD~3/SaddleAccessories.html
    Either way, I think I was lucky to get it for $40!

    That girth you found looks really similar but is actually nicer than what I have, just looking at the stitch work. And my girth's pad doesn't flare at the ends. SUPER close though! And thank you for...

    I bought one for my pony about 4 months ago, a black plain raised with brown padding. Has held up great for daily riding. The leather is nice quality and broke in well. I rarely clean it.

    That yoga mat idea worked great! My pony is much happier. :) Thanks, Jay!

    Thornhill Vienna II is pretty low and has a great open seat. The Thornhill Klasse may be lower but I've never actually seen one in person.
  24. Help me identify my dressage girth! With pics.

    I bought this girth on consignment for $40 at my local tack shop. It has a maker's mark, kind of a horsey fleur-de-lis, but no other stamps, letters, numbers, or other identifying information.

    It...
