    Here is a really good video I saw about the TT saddle. I like how they show comparisons of all the flap shapes at the end! It really shows how a flap that looks so weird just sitting there looks so...

    DON'T do the Internationals....they are cut super-straight and gapped the worst on me.

    I have the same problem and pretty much the exact same build as you do. I found the perfect fit in Romfh Champion breeches. My waist is a 26" but I usually have to get a size 28 in breeches to fit...

    Try a Cheata bra. I'm the last person to worry about chest movement (I practically have none), but I've been seeing FB posts show up on my feed. The videos and testimonials seem really impressive.

    Ovation Olympia boots...I just witnessed my good friend take a brand new pair out of the box, put them on, and take a lesson with a BNT (hence why she didn't want to ride in her paddocks and half...

    MY Dublins lasted me 4 or 5 years. What finally gave out was that my heel wore through the lining at the back (though it may have been accelerated from the use of the Dubarry boot liners). I...

    This is true, but what I don't get is why do the sponsors have to all be LUXURY? I mean, I totally understand why Land Rover wouldn't sponsor a show when the people there aren't the LR demographic,...

    Maybe also that cats tend to wander alot more than dogs so to see "wandering kitty" (at least in a semi-rural area) is not uncommon. Example, we have a super-cute, super-friendly neighborhood cat. ...

    I would say that if there was only 1 date left on the schedule, it might be shady.
    But, you have 3 more opportunities (a third of the season!)....if you can't make at least one of those, then yeah,...

    I agree. It would also be a different issue if you were keeping him at home where only you have to handle him, but in a boarding situation, you are putting others at risk. That's isn't fair to them...

    I have an Appy with withers (so no hoop-tree needed)....Saddles that fit well (all are wool-flocked so you can have it adjusted):

    Neidersuss Symphonie in a Medium (fit well up front but the panels...

    First off, I'm sorry you were treated shabby. Dressage people tend to range from super-bitchy and high-strung, to super-cool and welcoming (it also depends upon WHEN you encounter one. Before our...

    Am I the only one who thought the horse raising his tail to poop in the church...before realizing he was a Saddlebred? :lol:

    I would think it is all personal and different per horse. I knew a horse in college who would pull you out of the tack if you let him. My arms and core were never so sore (and this was with pushing...

    Tell this to my DH. :( I fear that I will never be able to adopt a pet from a shelter because they microchip. He is fanatically against the practice as he feels like it is a "slippery slope to get...

    The best resource if you are looking for a competition perspective, is the On The Levels DVDs put out by the USDF.

    Don't block! Accept the energy and recycle it back. Sort of like a spring. There are lot of good articles and videos about the energy cycle of dressage.

    I think that is because what you are really looking for IS advice on softening (even if you don't realize it yet). "Headset" is looked at as a false frame...the horse puts its head where it looks...
