    I fell off a couple weeks ago and landed body first but the momentum made me hit the back of my head on the dirt. The first thing I did before riding again was replace the helmet. It too was an...

    Personally, I would go wide & use a Mattes pad with shims as needed. I had a Toulouse w/ Genesis for a brief time, I hated it- the tree "unlocked" during a ride and it ended up sitting on my horse's...
  3. Helmets that fit similarly to CO Hampton?

    I have had a Charles Owen Hampton for a while and it fits very well, but I would prefer to have something more ventilated for showing this summer in Texas. What other brands or styles of helmets fit...

    Toulouse's have mixed reviews, some people love them and some people hate them. They have really shoddy quality control, apparently as well. I hated the one I had (Laura B Pro w/ Genesis) for my...

    UPDATE: Based on some of this feedback, I ordered a Prestige Roma (33cm) and it is AWESOME! I never imagined I would be able to ride my weird beast in only a square pad, but it's like the Roma's...

    Thank you! I think the main thing that's been throwing me off is his short back. I am definitely investigating Prestige & Amerigo, though I wish there were an Italian saddle warehouse within driving...

    Thank you for the detailed response. This is my first horse, and my first time saddle shopping 'for real', so I am more than a little neurotic about the whole thing. And yes, everything I've been...
  8. Saddle Nightmare.. UPDATE: Nightmare is over! Post #16

    I have had my horse for 5 months and been saddle-shopping for 4.5 of those. I didn't just buy a cute, well-mannered, great-for-me little horse, I bought the. weirdest. shaped. TB. ever.

    I have...

    I have sold too many saddles lately- I decided to consign my County after a few months of trying to sell it myself. From what I have experienced, most of the people on English Tack Trader etc are...

    Another +1 for Cori McGraw. She has one of my saddles on consignment right now and I just tried another from her. She has been excellent to work with and has a lot of potential customers on waiting...

    What have you tried?

    She looks pretty similar to my TB, but mine is a little wider (he didn't get the memo that TBs are supposed to be skinny). I have tried a bunch of saddles over the last 3...

    It's hard to see in some of the pictures that are sideways, but I think you have it placed way too far forward, it looks like it's ON her shoulder. Move it back at least 2-3" and then try re-taking...

    Yep..I ordered a turnout a few months ago and selected the 2-Day shipping option (because I needed it ASAP), paid $54 for the faster shipping, and the next day when I logged in to my online account I...

    No personal experience with them, but that is a seriously sketchy looking website.

    It looks like they are in some way affiliated with this website: http://www.horsematchintl.com

    Those are cheaply made, low quality saddles, and it won't have a good resale value.

    For less money than that one costs new (<$300), I would look for a used, better-quality saddle (Crosby,...
