    I did the switch several years ago, after I came back to riding during graduate school. I showed hunters from the time I was 9 until I aged out, and when I came back I picked up hunters again but...

    I think kids who are interested are not that hard to find- but if they are always in a program which gives them no agency in the barn that is the norm under which they operate. Why would we...

    I just got some Mountain Horse Supreme Whatevers for every day riding because they were on sale and I heard they were sturdier than the Venice (which I wore through in 1.5 years). I am hoping they...

    Well, it depends on how old it is, what materials it is made out of, and how it has been kept and used and maintained. When you look at the ones you come across, make sure you bring someone and have...

    Thanks, guys! Egioja- what type of leather do you have? I think the grain would be my best bet, but since I am buying used I may not have all of the options!

    Updated CWD 2G experiences?

    I've searched for and read all (I think) of the previously posted stuff about the 2G models from CWD, but I'm wondering if any owners here can speak to durability over time, now that it has been out...

    Not to derail further, but I agree with supershorty. There was someone riding in what looked like sweatpants and a huge, flapping t-shirt at one of the local shows I went to a couple of years ago....

    Good luck with the un-derailing, OP! :lol:

    Actually, though, you are in a place I think many people are- and it's a fine place to be if you have plans for moving up. I have a young horse with a...

    That is not at all what people are talking about, in the video of the junior jumper rider! That is an educated horse and an educated rider in a jump off. There was nothing scary- she had two very...

    I agree with doublesstable- it really depends on your build, so you should go out and try on as many as you can. The only TuffRiders I like are the ones I listed above- the Sierra ones. But I know a...

    I took my young horse to our first rated show a few weeks ago, and even just doing the 1m classes there was a world of difference from the crazy riding I would see at the schooling shows. You can...

    My every day AND show breeches, actually, are TuffRider Sierra. I love them and have about eight pairs in various colors.

    The CO AYR8 is very nice- GPAs do not fit me, but I've owned several different COs and they always do. I have the OneK, too, as my everyday hat and the chin strap sometimes slips up and drives me...

    I love my Innovation, which fits my TB perfectly. I am going to try to find another one in a wider tree that will fit my WB, since my Devoucoux fits him but not me. :cry:

    Too bad about the issue- he is gorgeous, and my kind of ride, too. But you will find another one, there is no doubt!

    I will put in a plug for looking south- I got my five year old from Argentina...

    I love these: http://www.statelinetack.com/item/tuffrider-sierra-knee-patch-breeches/E003575/

    They are cheap, wear like iron, and flattering (I think/hope!) I do jumpers, and it seems like we...

    Tradition isn't a bitch, nor is it the end-all, be-all- it is just what people did at a particular point in time. Sometimes things are ok if they evolve and change, and sometimes not so much. I used...

    County is a great one to check out. My TB, who is a big guy, goes in a County Innovation with Skid Row panels. It was built for my previous horse, who had the mother of all shark fins, and fits this...

    I guess I think that we have to take stock of our abilities and figure out where and how we can improve them in any undertaking. There are so many tangible and intangible things that go into success...

    Um, some people have perfect pitch. Does that not fall under what we loosely consider talent? I can practice all I want, but I will never have perfect pitch. I have relative pitch, which can be...

    I think it is a mix of a lot of tangible and intangible things. I've always had great feel in terms of how a horse is going/feeling, but I've had to work really hard at the technical stuff, so I've...

    I just took my young horse to his first away show. He showed all last year with his former owners, but only at one day shows, so this was new for him. I have not done an away show since I was a...

    She is nice, but yes- it looks like she would be quite a project. She is big and heavy and seems like she would be hard to package for an equitation-type ride without a lot more training. Her jump...

    Mileage and time are the best bet if you are unable to school lots of things at home.

    However, you can actually do a lot to make scary/interesting jumps at home. Build a liverpool, drape coolers...
