    Laurie,

    So in today's ride I thought about this even more.

    It's not just short riders--I'm 5'6" but convinced I have really odd conformation. I have long thighs/short calves. I have short arms for my...

    I have noticed this as well (the hand movement/excursion). There is a local trainer (but he's international) who I always thought looked like he was "pushing" his hands/the reins away from him with...

    I agree with above. You should only worry about basics now, string them together a few at a time over the winter, and then practice the test as needed this spring.

    I love Charlotte because she rides like me (I'm older, so I did it first! ??).

    I have "T-Rex" arms. My coach and I laugh because she'll say: "Bend your elbows. Shorten your reins." I'll yell back:...

    Try talking to Kitty at L'Apogee. She has different seats for different fits. And what I mean by that is, the strapping/webbing (unsure of term) in the seat can be adjusted in each seat size.

    FEI levels do not require a double unless you are showing at a CDI. However, I am not sure that these are legal FEI regardless.

    I'm gonna guess they are german silver HS spurs. I always scoffed at expensive spurs--until I tried my coach's and what a difference. I use the HS smooth rowel ones (small rowel, barely goes past the...
