  1. USEF/USHJA registration question - leased horse, owner not USEF member

    Hoping this will be a simple quesiton for the group - we are leasing a horse that has not been registered with USHJA yet.

    We are not competing at a high level where we are worried about being...

    I expected some maintenance (I've had wool flocked saddles before), but really have never had to do it more than 1x/year. Maybe since we are still in the first year...
  3. Hard to fit horse - wool flocked saddles not always the answer?

    I remember reading on here a long time ago a comment a COTHer made about custom wool saddles not always being the answer for a hard to fit horse.

    I am looking for feedback from folks that have...

    I am also new to jumpers. I have found a few things helpful for memorizing the course in addition to the tips you have already gotten.

    Agree - no braiding last year. Beautiful show (my fav), great facility, tough competition, top notch horses in a wonderfully laid back atmosphere.

    Hey - just a quick note that I was in a similar situation (needed wool flocked) and had a budget exactly the same as yours.

    I like the Counties a LOT - fell in love with the Innovation - but...

    Agree - can you see any visible change while it is ON the horse? I would guess the CWD mentioned above probably does look different from the underside - would almost be impossible not to - but...

    Tough one. I can understand your unhappiness, especially if you were told it would look exactly the same.

    However, I can't imagine how one could strip out the foam, put in wool and stitch it...

    If you have a rep in the area, might not hurt to try the Hastilow line of saddles.

    Horse and I both really liked the County Innovation, but I couldn't find one with the unique combo of features...

    I see what your thought process is, but my feeling on the adjustable trees is that they are nice to be able to adjust...like 1-2 times a year. You are NOT going to be wanting to adjust the tree...

    Just rode in both (brand new) in the same seat and flap configuration as someone in my barn was trying them out and I wanted to see what they were like. Absolutely do not ride the same. Both are...

    Motion is lotion. My teenager is sounder the more work he does. Of course, we are at a barn with fairly limited turnout - about 4-8 hours on good days - so he gets worked about 6 days a week, year...

    ^^^ Assuming this is true, then I am REALLY glad I didn't go with County (at least through our crap-tastic rep!)

    I think it is trial and error for every horse - no one regime is the best for all horses. Doesn't hurt to try Adequan (except your pocketbook) and see if you like it better than the oral joint sups....

    Hey, I just had our County rep out 3 weeks ago.

    Not sure what you can do now, other than put them on and see how they stretch.

    If not - Ebay them! Someone will buy them for the...
