    And a good reason, if you do wear a helmet, to adjust the strap properly and not have it hanging loose.

    I'd take my quirky barrel horse on trail rides in his tie down all the time. I had the easy clip on the cavesson, so I could simply reach forward and unclip it. I'd leave it unclipped for 90% of the...

    This kind of makes me think of the great cinch vs girth debate I had with a friend a while back. I'm in the cinch = western and girth = english camp, they were in the girth applies to all camp.

    Snaffle can refer to both mouthpiece and type of bit. Why? I don't know. I'm not a fan of single jointed bits in general, whether they be a snaffle or curb.

    The way you ride vs. the way a student rides are not comparable. How you ride, at least at this point, will not make you a great instructor. There are great riders who couldn't become great teachers....

    I took the risk and purchased the saddle, from the info I exchanged in the emails it should fit my horse. If it ends up not working, then lesson learned and try to sell it. Otherwise I'll have a nice...

    Pretty low budget (below $500), looking for a saddle more suitable for the poking around I'm currently doing. Just sold my Double J roper, it was just too nice of a saddle to poke down the trails and...

    All the time, I'd un-clip my tie down strap and clip the lead on. If they run their heads they're more likely to get loose. But I haven't had an issue with that personally. At ropings it's common to...

    Horses should only be ridden in gear that fits and is comfortable for them. Some ride great in a snaffle, some ride great in a curb, others ride great in a hackamore. My collection of bits will grow...

    Not at a show, but at a team practice. It was pretty normal to dismount, exit the arena, and take his boots off/loosen the cinch. He decided he wanted to go back to the trailer, which was maybe 500...

    I don't recall seeing any Ammerman on this thread, or am I just missing it? I've really enjoyed riding in the Ammerman ropers, but I don't own one.

    I usually kick my feet out of the sittups, swing my leg off, and push off the saddle with my hands. More of a jump off.

    I'd like to get some experience in real ranch roping, but there's not really much opportunity for that in Michigan. There's not much for competitive arena roping either, unless you're traveling out...

    Don't quote me on this, but I think it's similar to using a double bridle dressage. A curb is a finished horse bit, something that is (supposed) to be progressed up to through training.
