    Great--thanks for all the perspectives. Sounds like this is not something that is detrimental to my horse so I will just keep working with this trainers approach and not be such a weenie! :D

    I have a monoflap saddle and a cut-out quarter sheet. When it's not too cold, I just put mine over the saddle (under the stirrups) and remove it once my horse is warmed up.

  22. Rules debate: why not just have the "open" division have a faster speed?

    I know they have tabled the rule changes for the lower levels (for now). However, I still can't figure out why the speed changes have to be an "all or nothing" approach. I'm sure I'm not the first...
