    I'm 5'3" and 100 lbs. The XS fits me very well. Sometimes I feel that the waistband is tightish but some days are like that! Until I bought the FITS, I swore by Equissentials. The one piece...

    Is she 'crafty' at all? In a similar situation I did crafts. Two ideas spring to mind...any craft store right now has lots of 'make an ornament' kits (mostly stringing beads). Easy and seasonally...

    I know it can be done. I bought a pair of Petries two years ago and the
    seller (in Germany) had her saddle maker put zippers in to make them fit

    your nose on it. Anyway, coats can be pinstripe and I really doubt that anyone will care. The idea is to look clean,...

    color, trim...

    My teacher has me on the lunge line, no stirrups, no reins at
