    RedmondDressage - I did a search here for saddle fitter reviews before I called someone out. Since I know you've heartily recommended her several times, you're right, you do know who I used... Loved...

    Hastilow Concept?

    I had the saddle fitter out on Saturday to take a look at my QH, the saddles I had on trial, and the brands she reps.

    In the end, the consignment Albion I had fit, but needed to be completely...

    We had a grade QH gelding built like that. We found a used Y-L saddle, wade style, that fit him like a glove.

    They're quite spendy new (custom...

    Thanks all. Saddle fitter is coming on Saturday - she reps a few brands that are known to fit wider/flatter backs (that I haven't been able to find on consignment on my own) and has indicated that...

    I think you were all correct, and each of the previous saddles was too narrow in one or more ways. I brought 4 more home today and I think this one might fit correctly. The other 3 are either too...

    My QH has gone in aluminum wedge shoes on the front for the past 3 show seasons. He tends to grow a lot of toe and putting him in wedge shoes up front gives him the correct angle and maintains it as...

    My QH gelding is 3/4 brother (or whatever) to Spooks Gotta Whiz. They share a sire and my horse's dam is SGW's grand-dam (maternal line). No idea what you call it, but it's cool.

    ETA: SGW won the...

    Okay, I picked up two consignment saddles on trial today (saddles 7 and 8 respectively). I'm planning to ride in one or both tomorrow. Thoughts? I think the GG is a better fit, but I'm not sure.

    I...

    I have one that's young, energetic, and eats a lot of alfalfa. I DO see a difference when he's getting Remission than when he's not. He's still energetic and forward, he just doesn't lose his s*&% in...

    Wellspotted - he probably would have coped just fine with a change of bit and bridle, but it turns out I want to do traditional dressage, not Western. No opinion on which is better, but I'm finding...

    I'm bumping this to try to keep all my saddle questions/thoughts in one place. My philosophy at the moment is to try to find a quality used saddle in reasonable shape to get us started. I'm assuming...

    As someone in the position of having a mostly finished reiner that's now green to dressage (and I'm green to the whole English world), this was full of useful thoughts. And actually, I now want to...

    Thanks all. I tried the Barnsby tonight and I felt like it was tipping me forward. I'll try it again Thursday just to be sure, but I think the search continues.

    All 3 arenas I use charge $15 per ride. Not sure about extra horses. They vary in monthly fees for unlimited riding - $65 / $80 / $100.

    Hey Mtn trails, I'd be interested and I'm local. Just starting to get into dressage.

    I got a demo. It's the same as a reining saddle and pad. :)

    Thanks all. I'll ask if/when the saddle fitter is next coming out. If there's not a visit planned, I'll make an appointment. We clearly need a saddle, so I'd rather get on it, than not.

    Next...

    Just to clarify, my new trainer is the one selling the Barnsby. We placed it on him last week and the fit looks good. I'd like to ride in it to see what I think of the twist etc. If I decide that I'm...
  21. Duh style questions for a new to English dressage rider

    Little man and I did our first ride with a dressage saddle yesterday and no one died. I think we might be hooked. I'm trying not to be a total pest with idiot questions in my lessons, so I'm going to...

    I use it on my previously foundered mini mule and haven't had an episode since putting her on it. I also feed it to my QH gelding as he eats mostly alfalfa and I notice a significant difference in...

    Chocomare - so glad you liked it all. I had such fun making a plan and executing it, even if it was a bit slower than I hoped. Enjoy your Christmas!
