    Christiane does not have any upper level schoolmasters on hand as far as I know. It is definitely a sale barn, lots of fresh imports, young horses moving up the levels, etc. Horses don't stay super...

    I really like my FSS bridle that I ordered about a year ago. It's held up great and I'm really pleased with the leather quality. It's been used daily or close to it for the last year. I custom...

    My only experience are with the Kerrits Ice Fil shirts and the Smartpak Sunshield shirts.

    The Kerrits shirt, while very flattering, is a thick, hot material that is very uncomfortable in the...

    I think I would fall into the category of womanly shaped, and I LOVE my Pipers! I have the full seats, so not sure how the knee patches fit, but I can't imagine it's much different. I'm kind of in...

    I love my Schneider's Vtek VFree (NOT Fitted Vfree) blankets. They fit my guy with high withers and fairly broad shoulders, who gets rubs in many blankets, very well.

    I also have nothing to contribute, other than that I didn't know what snafu meant....and as a bonus, I learned what fubar means in the process!

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one! I was getting worried reading this thread. :lol: I've just grown up with all manner of animals and it's never been a big deal. Obviously things get wiped down...

    :lol: Does it say something about my upbringing that I've never worried about cat hair in my food? Hell, we've even caught the cats licking off an unguarded stick of butter and we didn't trash the...

    The only movie I've really truly walked out of was "Disaster Movie." Got talked into it by a friend, and I think I lasted 5 minutes before I walked out and asked for my money back. I also can't stand...

    My overall impression is that he is CUTE!

    I really like his hindquarters and shoulder. I do wish his hindquarter were bigger, but with proper work I think he could learn to use it adequately.

    Mine is almost 2 years old and it is slotted as well.

    A Scottish trainer I rode with last weekend, who rides with Carl Hester and his trainer on occasion, told me the same thing (supposedly it's a common phrase in the UK now). I have the same bad habit...

    I have the Piccadilly and love it. Although I do like the monocrown padding, I'm not wild about the extra buckles. My horse hasn't had any problems with the traditional crown on the Piccadilly. :)

    As someone who is panicky up to a full two weeks before a flight - can't sleep, racing heart, constantly nauseated, etc. - and who has complete and utter panic attacks once actually on the plane...

    I LOVE my Smartpak Sunshield long sleeve shirts. Not a ton of color choices, but some fun and playful ones. The shirts are spendy, but I feel like I'm wearing a tanktop in 100* heat!

    LOVE Eddie Izzard! He is just hilarious. I grew up watching his "Dress to Kill" routine. ;) He sums up the way dressage looks to the uninitiated perfectly! "And they won the gold! And it looked an...

    I use these. They are neither fancy nor expensive, but they come in fun colors and I must say, they are very comfortable. My feet and knees don't hurt after riding anymore!

    I still jump occasionally, as cross training or just to take a break, but I have little interest in showing in h/j/eventing anymore. I find dressage to be more rewarding and challenging mentally and...

    My instructor introduced this to me a month or so ago, and it has been a b*tch to work with! Super helpful, though, and it has really helped our canter.

    I'm in Redding, so a couple hours east of you! :) Brenda is an excellent source, so if you're in the market, you ought to let her know!

    It looks like his adoption is pending. I don't suppose it's...

    Um, you could send him my way. :yes:

    But seriously, he is very cute! I like his conformation from the legs up a lot. His front legs are a little light, IMO, and I can't tell if his front feet are...
