    Agree with many points already mentioned. Here's another consideration.

    Skimmed through the responses, so apologies if this is a repeat.

    You could try tying your stirrups to your girth. Be sure to use something that will break if you fall - like a flimsy spur strap...

    I've used some like Due's Mom. They slide a bit in your boots, so maybe try taping them down (or I forgot to use the sticky stuff they came with, can't remember).

    Just did a clinic with an R judge last weekend and he said you'd be surprised what details the judges notice. He's old school and has great distaste for...

    I don't typically wear anything to the barn that needs to last because I'll quickly ruin it with horse snot, Thrush Buster, iodine, mud, horse poop, blood, sweat, and tears.

    With carrot face, the head is usually low and sometimes the front lip goes into a boxy shape.

    Seen it many times. :-)
