    I like gags, though the 3 ring types seem to lead to the horse getting BTV which is highly unnecessary jumping! I do like to see gags with two reins, one seems a bit lazy ;) However, there's always...

    Yes, it fills in the hollows but the tree & gusseting doesn't extend down nearly as far as the Black Country which was probably too narrow for her through the shoulder because of that, and it...

  4. The twist is a little wide, the flap isn't...

    The twist is a little wide, the flap isn't forward enough, and the balance is different than the Tad Coffin which is perfect for me. I can't quite describe it, but it does feel slightly better to...
  5. Saddles that fit the horse like a Jeffries?

    Most recently, the saddle that fits my youngster is a Jeffries Verona. This saddle fits very, very well...as in happy mare with just a baby pad. I'm thrilled, we tried 5 different saddles just...

    I think it should be on another thread. But no, ultimately, with how quickly things happen in the world these days...it's a disservice to the sport, and the human and equine athletes.

    Do not...

    I don't like the format changes, either. All this jumping before XC, and instead of getting through XC with some horse left for SJ, it's school the horse until it's quiet enough to jump around for...

    Just because someone does their very best, loves the bejesus out of the horse & cares for it more than they care for themselves - does not mean there isn't room for improvement. I'm not sure this...

    Very sad. My condolences to both horses & their connections.

    Could the new format encourage less emphasis on fitness and more on refinement absolutely & I agree (probably encourages too much...

    She looks like she is traveling with her hocks pretty close together, has a weak loin, and is just out of shape.

    And while I'm all for calling the vet - good old legging up takes time...I wouldn't...

    Well, to be fair to the mares - we ask a lot from our horses. We expect a lot. If their performance is suffering due to hormonal stuff, why not help them? I have a great mare, it'd be easier for...

    Another weak stifle hint - if the hocks are close together at the canter, hooves swinging out.

    I'd start with: it's weak stifles or the abscess - 10months if ownership & time off isn't going to...

    Don't sit in a test unless it's great is what I've heard & like to live by. Sitting in warmup may be good, and there are surely exceptions to this rule - maybe a naughty horse where a slow sitting...

    A dressage judge is going to point out the weakness, which as you agree is there & being worked on. There's also a difference between connection and the 'on the bit' stuff you speak of. Connection...

    Which brings us to another point - can always buy the 5k horse who is good by lacking the show record, and put a couple months of pro training & showing under his belt, and have your packer. But...

    Over 10k for a BN horse? I'd lease for a year or so - and oldie but goodie type...then maybe import if needed? No wonder why people are importing more horses - for the mileage they have, it pays. ...

    I was told to try an Albions for my flat-backed horse. Haven't really had luck finding one local, but I haven't really looked. A Tad Coffin was great - but not enough wither clearance for mine...

    Who is floating the cost increase at the 'A' show due to the 'increase in prize money' - the syndicate members? Who's likely to be the LL competitor helping a pro they like along by not only...

    Anyone worried about silver paint leaving marks on boots, or maybe the saddle when stored? Leather care products sure do a number on my gel manicures, they peel easily which is no small feat. I...

    Thanks for the info eventer! I do think if you go double clear XC and don't make it to SJ - than in some way that XC was done "at the expense of" SJ and that bet failed. Something, somewhere was...

    So I posted a little while ago about a lovely saddle that didn't quite work for my horse. I'd love to sell it but most people want a trial & I just can't do that without a second saddle to ride in. ...
