    My mare that uses a County Innovation N SR with shoulder gussets also fits super well in a N SR Connection with shoulder gussets. [edit]

    I'm 5'0" and my horse is 18.1" /1600lbs. He is a BIG guy, not just tall. I know that sounds ridiculous, but he is so talented and we get along so well that he has become my heart horse despite our...

    Quick update: I've not had any trouble with bleeding on the two saddles I dyed yet, knock wood. :) it's been about a month now, I've even used them in the rain - I'm very happy I tried dying them!

    I was told by the vet hospital that type I was the most common - had been found to be genetic, was in many QHs and could be tested with a blood test. Type I often presents with typing up.

    I've never had trouble with creating 'backward thinking' using frequent transitions on a 20m circle (either within or between gaits). I try to think almost of half steps in my downward transitions -...

    I like still shots primarily, they are easier to use to compare different saddles between different listings. A video is a good bonus though, if you like the saddle a lot and want to feel confident...

    Michelle, thanks for being open to suggestions! I like to see at minumum: left and right sides (straight from the side, no angle), both sides with the flap raised (clearly showing billets and...

    Transitions (within and between gaits) helped my guy a lot. Upward for impulsion/push behind, downward for 'sit'/engagement, repeat both on a 20 meter circle regularly to put the two elements...

    The saddle fitter I saw last week said that the position issues you described are most often a symptom of the twist being too wide for the rider. I have seen a kind of seat saver that was designed to...

    I just redyed two dressage saddles with great results. I think with brown instead of black I would send it to a pro, but without a doubt dying mine helped the leather. I used a professional oil based...

    We had one foal with Vienna Waltz in his pedigree diagnosed with *type II* PSSM. VW was his dam's grandsire, so he is back a bit... Not as much is known about type II, we were told it wasn't proven...

    Knock wood, I don't think it will be a problem. I have done two coats of the conditioner and nothing has come off. I don't have any shows for a few months and my other breeches are all dark. :)

    Coming back to report - I got the used saddle and dyed it with the feibing's products (deglazer, oil dye, tan kote, then resolene), followed by conditioning with Black Country Balsam. The foam...

    This has also been my experience. I have a MN stabilizer and a N Innovation that fit the same horse... so I'd be wary. Definitely call County to see if they have something on record that would...

    This was exactly my thought. I looked at a used saddle a few years ago that I really liked, but I passed on it because the stamp and the measurement didn't match. The seller said it had been widened...

    Once you know which model you like and what panels/size your horse needs, you should be able to find a used one for $1,500-3,000, depending on the model and the condition. That's what I did! :)

    My horses love my counties - I have a stabilizer, a conquest, 2 innovations, and a connection. They are sooo happy to move in them. The flocking is adjustable as on all wool paneled saddles, but the...
