    You won't find one. You are looking for a unicorn. Trust me. I've had to quit riding because of it.

    As a horseless rider or person who leased 4 horses, I find that CWDs fit many varieties of WBs/WB crosses. Devoucoux also fits many different horses, from 15.3hh to an 18hh youngster with less...

    Netta is so overweight, she sits in a golf cart to teach lessons. Wonder what George Morris would think about that in a "trainer." What if someone needed help with a problem horse...there's no way...

    Netta Schelden at Equidream. I did my junior hunters/eq campaign with her and she was the best trainer. Otherwise there's Chris Neff at Tipperary Farm.

    Dear God...don't go to either. Netta is...

    I thought the same thing as you as it didn't seem like the prize money was that much. I guess it is more for prestige of the title.

    I actually sat next to the announcer of the event on the bus...

    Well, it is the World Finals. Personally, I didn't think the course was impossible to get through. Yes, the oxer/vertical/oxer or vertical/oxer/oxer, etc were tough, but it was doable. A lot of...

    I've been eyeing off-the-rack dress boots for jumpers and 4th Level dressage as well as custom half chaps, as I have very skinny knees, so the Spanish cut top always gaps a lot. Just got back from...

    Disappointed Parlanti and Sergio Grasso aren't there. I thought for sure Parlanti would be. Wanted to get measured for some new dress boots!

    I can get a custom CWD fitted for me, but not especially made for a horse, as I lease or ride different horses...so yes, high-end saddles can not be totally custom for the horse.

    I called Tipperary and talked to one of the head people directly. They gave me a replacement T2 helmet because the lining in my Sportage was always separating. I saw that the DOM was about...

    It isn't my horse. It's a private horse for sale that my trainer rides/shows and lets me ride, so his saddle would fit this horse just fine. Most high end saddles fit the majority of WB horses, so...

    Thank you so much for that suggestion! I will check them out. Maybe they will have something newer in my price range, as I'm inclined with Lucassb's opinion of $2k being way too costly for a 10...

    What would you price a horse for lease, sale, or lease-to-buy who can do 1.20/1.25m, not refuse or be a dirty stopper, come back after the jumps, flying changes (not automatic) and...
  14. County Perfection - Used Retail Value Help

    Coming from the H/J world, I am used to $4k-$5k custom saddles brand new. Brands such as CWD and Devoucoux certainly hold their retail value for up to six years or so.

    I have found my dream...

    That's what I've always thought! However, if you look at pictures from Wellington, quite a few hunter riders are wearing coats with four buttons and a different colored collar with piping. And...

    I called Nikki Jewell personally. She may still attend shows, but she does not accept new clients. She told me that she is in to rehabilitation of horses now. Don't call me a liar.

    PM me. I've been riding in the area for 20 years. There are a lot of crooks and "trainers" who can't train. You'll be hard pressed to find someone who won't cheat, lie, and scam you.

    I am flying in on Thursday morning and won't be using the Wednesday tickets. I'd hate for them to go to waste.

    Smooth ball roller spurs are great. Had to switch to a pair because a sensitive imported dressage horse I was riding was getting bad rubs from my regular spurs.

    I live 20 minutes from there and grew up watching their performances. I know the photographer, and he wanted so badly to do a winter photoshoot, so that's what they were doing. :D
