    Thanks for everyone's imput. I ride quite a few horses for clients and often I find they put me in a chair seat if the stirrups are too SHORT. Most people jump in too short a stirrup, thinking it's...

    Jump saddle with dressage balance?

    Hey folks, I may start doing some low-level jumping in the ring and XC. I borrowed a saddle and felt it put me in a chair seat. I already need to resist the urge to jump ahead, but a saddle with the...

    Frankly I don't think clinicing with 4-6 other riders in a group is very productive. But that's the only way our barn can afford this $$$ BNT's fee. There's not a lot of personal attention and...

    On a circle of any size, my belly button points to my horse's outside ear. This will keep your outside elbow & hip a tad back (mirroring your horse's corresponding shoulder/hip)and allow you to ride...
