    I'm a little late to this party, but if your main focus is running and you're doing this cross-training mainly in service of your running, check out the book Brain Training for Runners. Although the...

    That's a tough one. Possibly you could get Katy Groesbeck, the 3-star eventer who just moved into Redtail Ridge, to do it. She mentioned the other day that she's started doing training rides on a...

    I know this is totally revolutionary, but why not ask each trainer to clarify their feelings on the area of dispute and make your decision based on the answers? You may find that a little...

    EDIT: Gary appears to be on hiatus. :( Beval is a good alternative.

    None of the above. Get yourself a pair of custom Gary Mundy stirrup leathers. They're dirt cheap even if you customize them to...

    This article will cover all your bases. The Wirecutter has never steered me wrong, including with this article. I own their Bluetooth pick and their $15 budget pick. If you exercise outside--and you...

    Sorry, I should have used the term "renovated' rather than "discontinued."



    Maybe I wasn't clear enough in my last reply. I read your other thread, including what you don't like about the...

    How much are you prepared to pay for this?

    A strange statement on your trainer's part since County makes a variety of saddles with a pretty wide variety of stirrup bar placements. Even in the old days, when the County Eventer was still in...

    Google "hotel room workout." I saw one on my RSS reader a few months ago, and sure enough when I googled for more, there were tons. Some of them are body-only exercises, others incorporate things...

    What asterix said. Take a deep breath, stop freaking out, and pick up your phone to call some good local fitters. Sitting around browsing the Internet, getting totally overwhelmed by the 175+ brands...

    You're not going to like this answer, but Snicklefritz is right: you'll just have to sit in them. Especially with dressage saddles, where you're really sitting IN the tack instead of above it, it's...

    It is, but it's also a big town for H/J. As findeight said, the trick is finding lesson horses that accommodate a fellow that size.
