    Thank you; that is very kind.

    Thanks to all for the suggestions - the business does fine I guess. Every horse person I know that runs a show barn works extremely hard. Come to think of it, I...

    We've recently moved overseas so I cannot physically help; just be a listening ear and shoulder <figuratively> to cry on.

    It's really down to her and my parents. My other sister also had a family...
  3. Need Advice - Marriage & Horses...can it be done?

    It's been a while since I've been here but I need advice from people who get it aka...horse people.

    Haha; been there.

    Just wanted to add, it's not the actual tack that makes a judge knock someone down in the placings....it's what it infers. Hunters, even at the lowest levels, are supposed to...

    Just my opinion, but I wouldn't do a ton of "busy" things on the flat with a horse that was young, green, undermuscled and nervous to boot. Just ride & keep it simple. If you can, hack.

    Yup; depends on the individual.

    We've had a few Perch crosses; most were great, one was a bugger that had to be handled with care to get anything out of him.

    14" is too big which is why I am considering a western saddle.

    I don't even know if they make leather english saddles in a seat smaller than 14".

    I'm trying to picture what you're say but need some clarification...when he roots down; his head goes into his chest?? Usually when they root; they stick their nose OUT. Also you mention he is...

    Also wanted to add; this whole issue is another reason I do not enjoy judging at the lower levels. I don't feel it is my place as the judge to say anything to the riders (unless asked) but when I...

    Did you find the wintec to be a little flat? I think I remember ours was a little flatter than I would like. The western saddles seem to be a little deeper and since my LO is extra small for a 3...

    Impossible to say unless I saw the horse in person but I will agree with the above that for resale, quiet trumps fancy. Unless it is SUPER fancy.
