  1. Black Country saddles - which trees might have straight rails?

    Merlin goes ok in Rasta's beloved Custom Saddlery Monte Carlo, but clearly prefers something that has a tree that addresses his long, high withers, slight rise from wither to croup, AND his flat from...
  2. Does the new model Wintec Pro Jump saddle still have....

    ...a flat tree rather than curvy? I'm thinking I need something to trail ride in that can get wet as there are lakes to play in where I most often ride (plus, y'never know when pony will decide to to...
  3. Anyone routinely jump their dressage horse?

    Just wondering...please share your experiences. :)

    I think I have the best of both worlds - my Custom Saddlery Monte Carlo (mono flap) has the balance and look of a french saddle but - for me - because it has wool flocking, I have the help of having...

    Along these same lines of thought, how do you begin and then progressively build the muscle required for jumping higher and wider jumps as well as a line of jumps and an entire course?

    oddly, as a layperson, when I read these statements (or similar ones in various news feeds) I assumed the rider suffered the cardiac arrest due to the severity of the impact of hitting the ground...

    Forever ago, there was a Weldon Wall on the Training xc at Pine Top Farm...having never schooled it, I stayed awake ALL NIGHT worrying - of course, it rode beautifully. I may be mistaken, but I...

    I used t have one that would do this...was quite easy to predict: tension, not going forward, head up = drop shoulder-spin-BOLT!!!! My cure was a combination of jleegriffiths and purplenurple and...

    Thanks for all replies - scubed, gonna check ordering direct again as prices are similar to Fleeceworks; I fortunately do have a Griffen- Numed Hi- Wither half pad but even with a baby pad it is a...
  11. Thoughts on Fleeceworks sheepskin XC pad vs Griffin Numed sheepskin pads?

    After being washed at least 5X/week for the past two years, my beloved Hi-wither Griffin-Numed all purpose sheepskin pad is wearing quite thin on the back - BOO HOO! You cannot buy them in the US so...
  12. Anyone know what's going on with EventEntries.com?

    My neighbor across the road couldn't hear at all...so at dressage shows and at events, the judge was made aware of this and Louise would wait for a hand signal. Worked/works beautifully. She now...

    I expect that this saddle was a wide (or X-wide)- former owner rides Morgans - and then narrowed. In pristine shape. Super YR bought a MW with a gullet closer to what you'd expect for a MW - now...

    Agee, and I do LOVE this saddle, but not sure if that hasn't already been done to the saddle as the gullet is VERY wide! No Ainsleys to be found on ebay - let me know :)
  18. HAPPY UPDATE: Jump saddle VERY similar to Ainsley Chester?

    Saddle fitter coming tomorrow but I think I already know what she'll tell me: my lovely medium Ainsley Chester is a bit too narrow for horses. I've looked for same saddle in MW (17") but none to be...

    and it's also nice when Epona is on the other end of the "match up" :)

    Not to hijack the thread, but another COTHer (Annikak) also seems to play matchmaker really well...as Eponacowgirl and Cookiepony may grin and say, "YES!".

    this may be how I do it...Taco's mom may be called upon to keep an eye on Merlin during Rasta's lesson and then babysit Rasta while I ride the little guy :)
