    Most horses that are hot to ride are not terribly fresh in turnout (whereas my exceptionally lazy to ride horse plays non-stop outside). Most people prefer a horse that does not run much in turnout...

    I love the subtle colors but in Zone 1, I haven't seen it at all. I would certainly love navy on black for removal purposes!

    I don't miss real bathrooms terribly at Vermont - as supershorty said, there is a good "fake" bathroom set-up. The last two week long shows I attended in New England though... blech. I can't even.

    I have sold saddles on HorseClicks and English tack trader on Faceboom. Both happened within a few weeks of listing.

    I don't necessarily have a giant problem with people using Perfect Prep and it certainly doesn't factor into things I worry about at a horse show (which is saying a lot - I worry about everything :)...

    Sigh. It is a lot to ask of a horse to do the big eq at their second show, much less expect them to pack around. Some time developing the horse in the 3 foot ring or even with a professional in the...

    Ariats, though they run super large. On a budget, Horze Grand Prix or the Dover side zip euro seats are also good options that fit a bit differently than the TS.

    Honestly, while Haffies are very cute, they are not fancy enough for rated H/J shows, so that eliminates part of your market there. The bigger problem I see is that your ad says she is for an...

    I have to say it, even though I hate to be "that guy." Please put a helmet on your daughter whenever she's sitting on a horse, no matter what. There is just too much that can go wrong in the blink...

    Bluesaddles is a new company that is run by legitimate people. The people involved have a good reputation in the area (I believe one is a trainer).

    I bought mine from Destination Eventing and would also recommend Tebogo. Both were pretty upfront about what might suit my needs and didn't try to steer me to anything unsuitable. Such a pretty...

    Definitely worth it. You know who's around, but feel free to PM me for suggestions. The barn I am at now does a good number of partial leases.

    Previous to buying, I also half leased horses at some of the nicer barns around. One was young - I think 6 - and although pretty easy, he was still 6 plenty of days. The other was a jumper that can...

    I'll leave out the rant of how lucky you are to have a horse because you already know that and everyone else will tell you :)

    I would be wary of buying sight unseen, especially directly off the track, unless you were a super experienced re-seller.

    To echo everyone else, 16.1+, gelding is best, some chrome helps and a...

    Just wanted to comment that I love my shirts from Sports Authority. They are much cooler than wearing a t-shirt and the white one isn't totally see through. Added benefit: they dry instantly after...

    If anyone is looking for a 6 3/8 (I believe that was the size), SmartPak has a new on in their clearance section for 75% off. The box is labeled GR8 which is why I think it is up there.
