    In my area western dressage tests are judged by educated & licensed *dressage* judges... not judges of *western* sports that are educated in dressage.

    Not a slant trailer, but I have a 2+1 and had to move my mother's horse who was accustom to riding in a stock trailer. I opened up a big space- probably the size of a slant with 1 or 2 dividers...

    Draftmare I wish I did! I honestly prefer the Delfina girth to the prestige I'm using now, but didn't want to spend the money on another one if the elastic was going to wear out quickly. I did find...

    I think a lot of people use an anatomical girth because it seems like a nice concept, even if the shape of their horse & fit of their saddle doesn't require it. And there's some who think the girth...

    I was with a barn for years and stick to the style of "blanket managing" that worked so well: Blankets must be in working order, one turnout sheet (2 is better) for cool damp weather, an extra...

    Wow, thanks for all of the leads! Schutz I have heard of but many new ones to check out. I wish I knew of someone locally. I'm sure it's a matter of asking the right people or doing the right google...
  17. Headstalls built to work hard- and last, do they exist?

    Any suggestions on brands or makers of well constructed headstall that is made to last? Finding a saddle turned out to be easy compared to finding a nice bridle!
