    I'm at the Dover store looking at the Crown bridles, $39.99. Pretty nice for the price, at least as good as the one I got from Smartpack for about $100.

    Another thing to keep in mind is that Charlotte Dujardin, by all accounts, is fiercely competitive. She (and, I assume, Carl) chose movements that would earn the highest scores possible. Considering...

    Well, do you really care what I think about the ride? After all, I haven't ridden a grand prix freestyle, don't have a gold medal or a gold freestyle medal. So apparently I don't have the proper...

    I was just making a factual observation.

    What is the topic again? How you didn't appreciate the music? I'm not sure I am "qualified" to continue in this discussion. :rolleyes:

    Must have.
    Jocularity from a recent epic thread about Edward Gal that was mysteriously deleted. Funny translation from someone's German trainer.

    I just watched this for the first time on my tablet, seated on the living room sofa, Mr. Larkspur in the adjacent armchair. Transcript follows:

    Really, he is only in a cob? Well, you can always have the bridle cut down to size if it's too big.

    When mine was a yearling I bought an oversized KL Select -- it was a screaming deal I could not...

    My brother-in-law the football coach told me football pads would not have helped me in the love kick incident. Those pads protect the front of the thigh only.

    Despite the fact that he is a big sweetheart and his training is coming along swimmingly, I am thinking of changing my youngster's name to "Bruiser."

    I am still recovering, but doing very well,...

    You missed the point. The hands are already high, higher than ideal, so no need to avoid pressure on the bars by raising them even higher!

    To illustrate using THIS picture (the one I meant to...

    I can't personally relate to the short arms because I was born with ape arms. They come in handy for reaching things on high shelves but it makes clothes shopping a challenge because sleeves are...

    I got the Fairfax monoflap as a first saddle for my young, growing horse. It has proven to be a very good choice because it is so easy to adjust and was inexpensive (I basically stole it). It's been...

    When I first got the BOT sheet I just put in on and left it on as long as was practical for the horse (given the weather and his 24 hour turnout situation). I didn't worry or fuss about a "break-in"...
