    I got my zipper at JoAnns. It was one of the really heavy duty parka ones. I had to cut the end off mine because it was a dual separating (just wrap a bunch of wraps of thread around the cut end),...
  2. Replaced the zipper on my tall boots all by myself!

    I dare any cobbler to tell me its hard to replace a zipper now. In the midst of my desparate search for new tall boots (since I'm riding english for my new job) zipper #3 blew out in my tall boots...

    I'd try another cobbler. I would think that a decent cobler could run a whip stitch around the zipper to protect it and then be able to stretch it, especially as it doesn't sound like you're...
  4. Have you tried riding in a different seat sizes? ...

    Have you tried riding in a different seat sizes? I'm wondering if because of the flatter seat on most jumping saddles you're able to move more and getting a larger seat size in a dressage saddle...
  5. I was afraid that might be the answer. It's so...

    I was afraid that might be the answer. It's so frustrating because half a centimeter is such a small amount and Konigs are the only ones that might fit without going full custom. :no: I really...
  6. Will Konigs stretch 0.5 cms in the calf?

    After reading size charts and prices until I've gone cross-eyed, I've settled on a pair of Konigs Favorit Specials, so now I'm trying to decide if I can get away with semi custom (about $100 cheaper)...

    Thanks for all the replies and advice! I ended up getting a different job (that will allow me to finally replace my ancient Ariats boots :yay:), but I'm definitely going to keep this in mind! The...

    I'm in school to be a personal trainer. I don't fit into the typical personal trainer type (to quote propspony, I am not a jock-beast), so I'm hoping to work with the the older generation to help...
  9. Pisano riding boot repair still open?

    I would like to get in touch with them (since the general consensus in here seems to be that they're one of the best) but their website is down. Are they still open? If not, who do y'all recommend?

    I thought I was squeamish about public bathrooms, but reading this thread I'm downright hearty. I have no problems touching the handle to flush, I wash my hands after, and if there's water that's...

    Thanks for the link Bluey, that seminar sounds really interesting! I'd be interested in going to something like that just to learn about it. I admit I do not know as much abut cattle as I probably...

    Feedlot Penriding

    Anyone ever done it? Anyone know about "average" (which I know can be pretty flexible depending on shipping trucks) hours, pay, work environment?

    I'm having trouble finding a job in the more...

    I was going to comment on how impressed I was by her sports bra in the older video (with the white pants and cardigan), but there was a distinct lack of support on both demonstrators in the video...

    I see these all over my college campus. It takes two hands to count how many times I've been able to tell if the girl had a bikini wax or not! :eek: When you're desperately tugging your hem down...

    I couldn't help myself, I looked and just :shakes head:. I thought this was quite tactfully ridden.

    I was really hoping this was a hoax, like with Morgan Freeman. :( He was such a consistently funny comedian. The Birdcage is one of my favorite pick-me-up movies, now it'll be a bit bittersweet to...

    Sort by fit would be a brilliant option! I would be happy right now with size charts that didn't look like something out of my physics textbooks (specifically aimed at the Konig and Petrie size...

    I'm the opposite! :lol: This doesn't give me pause, but I go down steep hills clutching my cantle for dear life, praying with one eye closed, and I'm a weenie about even tadpole eventing jumps. ...

    I had forgotten about the scene in Seabiscuit, but that's a really good analogy!

    All horse shopping is fun, and considering what my daily knee brace cost (more than a lot of custom Parlanti or...

    Thanks ladyj, the Ovations are definitely a more approachable price point, especially for brown boots. I am, however, hoping to find a stiffened dressage boot to help manage some of the instability...

    I can think of about 5 horses I've ridden that I wouldn't hesitate to take through that, and a bunch of others that I'm reasonably certain would walk through that, but my boss delighted in creating...
  23. Confused by boot size charts, Ariat and DeNiro

    I'm considering getting new tall boots (I'm leaning towards a dressage boot this time), but in really confused by the size charts, especially compared to the Ariats I'm currently wearing. Now that...

    My indigo rose have taken forever to ripen. Its first tomato was full sized in early June, it's just turning orange on the bottom today, but it's hard to tell because they're black except for the...

    Thanks for all the kind words guys! :-) pAin't, you should post pics of yours when you get them done! I'm having a blast with it, I want to buy more polo shirts now.
