    Ditto shortening stirrups. Past instructors insisted on a too-long stirrup length for me, which DID NOT WORK for me. They blamed me rather than the stirrup adjustment. On my own, when I shortened the...

    I have the FITS cream breeches also. I use a Mattes cream pad, if that helps. If you don't need/want the sheepskin, perhaps you could lightly dye a pad to suit if you can't find the perfect color off...

    Me too. My students love the Simultalk and so do I. Yelling during riding lessons is soooo distracting! Thing works fine.

    dbliron1, that's a fantastic idea, and so simple I'm embarrassed I didn't think of it first! I have a student with "soft" ears and my headset does not work for her. Yours is a perfect solution!

    Suckerfor horses, yes, I know horses are still used for cattle work. I have done it myself on a place that's THOUSANDS of acres. No cowboy (or his girlfriend, unless she's a total city chick) would...

    I agree with Char0208 I think it's a lot to ask of most horses to do four (fairly) high level tests in two days. Back when my current horse and I were doing the Second and below tests, two a day were...

    If it's a well made, well balanced saddle and will fit present-day horses, I'd absolutely have it repaired.

    Also, do you LIKE the saddle and does it suit YOU?

    Jumping is excellent crosstraining! My coach has most of her students and their horses jump at least a little. I'm the exception. My horse Will. NOT. Jump. due to a back injury several years ago....

    OP did not say the horse was "well-trained". She described it as a bit green. I do not understand people's aversion to speaking the truth.

    Many heavy riders are excellent and do fine as long as...

    I think it's personal preference. Some saddles allow for this, some don't. I know of one rider who preferred the leathers under the flaps, but have never tried it myself. IMO, the leathers would be...

    In Texas circa 1966, I had a friend who boarded at the same barn with a horse named "Fingers" -- because he bit the fingers of the horse dealer. They hauled him around in her Dad's work van. To see...

    I'm so jealous! You've got a sidesaddle instructor! I've got the sidesaddle, a willing horse, but no one to help me ride SS correctly. AND my saddle needs some work before I get serious anyway.

    2.5 to 3 years is about the lifespan of Bettas, IIRC.

    Do you know for sure these are female Bettas? If so, they can live together as females are not aggressive towards one another. The males, of...
