    My hubby wears a size 14 shoe (and is also 6'4") and finding riding footwear of any kind was a challenge! We ended up finding "Justin" ropers in a size 14. They are just like paddock boots but we...

    An SI injury could definitely cause the behavior you are describing- okay on the lunge but in pain under saddle. Also the really stiff movement behind--if they are protecting their SI area--they...

    I do love my monoflap dressage saddle; It does seem to allow me to put my legs around the sides of my horse (rather than feeling like I am sitting on an oil drum). It's not as "poofy" as some of...
