    OneK helmets are nice and not expensive. I use mine for schooling, but I wouldn't mind showing in it. I have a tiny pin-head and the small is a little big since I cut my long hair off, but adjusting...

    I also love Myself de Breve and Marie Hecart. Lovelovelove that little mare- it looked like Marie gave her neck a rub after that triple combination, which is...

    Awesome! Um- how do they fit? It says they run small, but I'm pretty....underendowed, let's say, and usually wear a S or XS in shirts. I'll measure before I order, but thought I'd get some input....

    I've developed a hatred for show and everyday shirts made entirely of synthetics. In my experience they stain too easily, they stink and are hot and then the fabric sticks to your skin, and they...

    I agree with paw- sit down with your trainer and express your concerns. If *you* don't feel prepared, that is going to affect your performance. If your horse doesn't feel prepared to you, ditto the...

    A mullen mouth or a nathe might work well. My TB hates metal bits, so he goes in a HS Duo and loves it.

    It is a long process with one like yours- mine was the same way. You have to reward by...

    I would focus on fitness quite a bit- I have a coming 17 year old TB who events and we do a lot of hill work and hacking out (not trail riding, but actual working hacks, including galloping and...

    I recently looked into this for both of my horses- in the winter their hair is more brittle, so if you have a horse with a swingy back your pad may be giving it rubs. I am now using only sheepskin...

    I bathtubbed my customs, since I couldn't wear them otherwise, and it worked amazingly well. I had a bit of a panic attack when I stepped into the bathtub but it was 100% worth it!

    I am moving up from the Low AAs to the Highs with my young horse this year, and will probably get his shoes drilled when we start showing outside again. When we ship out to my trainer's during the...

    I love mine. I actually ride both my horses in it, although one is a TB who needs a N (an XN in an Innovation), and the other is a tube-like WB who goes in a Medium (a Narrow in an Innovation). The...

    I had a young horse who paddled fairly badly, but had good legs. I changed my farrier and it pretty much went away.

    My trainer told me I should try to get down to FL this winter, which caused me to laugh so hard I hurt myself. I actually have the horse (which is why he suggested it), but I don't have the money or...

    I just ordered a custom one with a zip-off padded lid from Smartpak for my Husky trunk, which is a slightly sturdier version of the Stanley that one can get at Lowes. You put in the measurements,...

    I use Contender II pads at home- I love them. I would show in one, too, but I have embroidered pads so I just throw a Thinline on top of one of those to show. The Contender pads are genius, though,...

    I love doing the jumpers for many reasons, but definitely one of them is that I can use whatever tack I like. On the other hand, I'm sort of a minimalist so I don't like adding extra stuff just for...
