    I really don't see the problem here.

    Would I care if 6+ generations back my boy had a TB as an ancestor? Well, no, because my boy has an Arab mom. :lol: But anyway, the % of TB in a highbred is...

    Don't give up the dream! lol

    I do agree, there does seem to be a few breeders who focus too much on type, and seem to be overdoing it! Some Teke's remind me of the super dished Arabs bred for...

    Yes it is what the breed was originally bred for. But that doesn't mean that is what all individuals will excell at. Like not all Arabs can do endurance.

    Wait, having a brain fart; do you mean...

    And if you're not used to them, and not paying attention when you dismount, you hang yourself up by your bra strap. Embarrassing! Much better to snap a grab strap onto the front of your saddle dees!

    Best of both worlds

    Why don't you look for a snap-on bridle. I got one a few years back, just $30. Goes easily onto the rope halter, use whatever bit you like. Just snaps. I got it from here, when it was still...

    I presently ride in a treeless. My choice for the horse I was riding. They (she was leased) went thru 8 saddles before I got my older model Torsion. It worked much better for her. Less bucking an...

    I gotta say, I'd be awful pissed if I came across you and your loose horse on public trails. Too many things can go wrong. You have no way of controlling that horse. Just because you've been doing...

    Murgab out of a nicely bred Arab mare. Not bred for Endurance. Bred for jumping.

    I jump like a sack of potaotes, but liked his look, so got him anyway. We'll see in 2 years how he does (he's...

    Uh, no. Cheap ones are. And that is "cheap" as in crappy quality.

    A good treeless has a lot of technology and research built into it. They have much improved from years ago!

    For any treeless, you need a "treeless saddle pad". This is any pad that provides spinal clearance. This is usually provided by a lack of padding right over the spine. I believe many treeless...
