    Nonsense. Horses don't know the difference between the sexes.
    It's the way someone moves and their confidence, or lack of, that matters.

    I'm going to be conservative here and ask that you consider pulling the mane to a nice shorter length (not 8 or 10 inches but more like 5 or 6 inches) if you can. I know pulling mane is a b&^^tch....

    And don't stress over it. Sometimes the horses change so fast it's just as good to get something that generally fits, then pad to get close to perfect, and when you have them further along and more...

    I think following Bornfree's advice is the best.
    I would not use Paypal.
    The check is appropriate. If she doesn't trust you with the check, I wouldn't trust her with the saddle, Didi.
    Just my .02.

    What's important is making sure that all interested or affected parties are in on the changes from the beginning. We used to define that as "communication".

    I hate being left out or forgotten. I...

    Let's talk about 3'5"!

    YES.

    Change, grow, morph, guide carefully, change. Grow. It's absolutely necessary. I grew up showing hunters because they were the only shows around with decent jumps and decent arenas to ride...

    In my opinion the subjective DR penalty application is a sport destroying tool while speed faults are onerous but objective and not subjectively applied, so the lesser of two evils.
