    Looking at the OP's previous posts, I'm thinking just a new rider with big dreams and a small pocketbook. Anyone who needs to lease to own probably shouldn't be dropping $1,000 on nontraditional...

    Please tell us what you DO mean, so that we can stop making assumptions.

    Because I must admit, I am stumped.

    I suppose I should clarify - I agree that you can be taught a lot by a stopper. And when I was a junior I rode a LOT of pukes. But as others have said, now as an adult with family and...

    It depends if it's chronic. If it's every once in a blue moon, just ride normally and don't worry if you fall off twice a year! (Easier said than done, of course...)

    But yes, the chronic dirty...

    It's very hard to avoid falling off at a truly dirty stop without riding defensively, and even they he might get you off. Even very good riders will fall off if the stop is dirty enough. Even if you...

    I wouldn't care either way. Probably slanted with a pole, as long as it's not slanted so much as to then become unsafe.

    However, one of the main reasons that you usually see poles over gates is...

    This most of all. The test in an eq class or a handy class is to establish the pace and track that you need from the in gate. If you canter in the ring you're making the test easier.

    I think you are misunderstanding me. I am perfectly capable of going into the ring by myself and making it over 8 fences without killing myself. I meant to say that I WILL not, not that I CAN not.
