    In theory it is not a bad plan - especially because trainer is close enough that you can take lessons each week and watch over the whole situation/process.

    I use the saddle pad and the fleece blanket/cooler. I don't know if I would use the polos for exercise because I don't want the leg tendons getting hot. I think there is a difference between...

    Selling on eBay is my main source of income. If it is a small amount of money and your listing did not specify no returns - just let it go. It is not worth the hand slapping that you may get from...
