    I see used Amerigo monoflaps from time to time on ebay and various area eventing sites. The Vega's pop up quite often, but the higher end Amerigo's are a bit harder to find.

    I used to be bad about this too. Make sure you have a good quality trot before you ask for the canter. When I feel as though I'm bouncing around on my horse at the sitting trot, it's usually because...

    I agree with cuatx55. The inside rein is there to provide slight flexion. In my opinion, crossing the inside rein over the neck makes the horse completely crooked and usually makes them fall out...

    Could you describe what she's doing a bit more?...

    Could you describe what she's doing a bit more? Is she not wanting to soften and flex to the right when going to the right? Or is she not wanting to fill up the right rein when tracking left? If...

    I was at Poplar today, but did not see the fall. Fence 7 was a drop into water, and people were saying that the horse unfortunately hung a leg and then was injured when he landed. It's so sad, and I...

    I had a fairly horrific trailering accident in September of last year, and my horse severed his extensor tendon on his right hind. It most definitely left an ugly scar and some strange bumps due to...

    I know exactly what you mean. People do not seem to understand that trailers pulling horses can't stop on a dime!! So glad you're looking into a bigger vehicle. You'll be amazed at how much safer...

    Declan is half Irish bred as well, out of a Clover Hill mare. He definitely has the massive jump and is incredibly sensible about things. He's a bit feisty about the dressage work at times, but his...

    You're so right that the newer Tahoes are not as solid as they used to be!! After getting a 2500 and gooseneck after the accident, I too will NEVER go back. Declan is still doing really well, and...

    You're absolutely correct. Bend is created from your inside leg into your outside rein. Just remember that bend is through the body. Flexion is in the poll. If you use too much inside rein on a...

    I think the key to any leverage bit (Pelham, kimberwicke, 3 ring, etc.) is soft hands and a correctly fitted curb chain. Just remember that a snaffle can be harsh in the wrong hands. The leverage...

    I think a chair seat is caused more by leg position than anything else. In the chair seat, the rider's leg is too far forward. Think about how a person looked sitting in a chair and then imagine...

    Sounds like the betadine scrub is a popular go to!! I'll have to give that a shot. His face should be extra special since it looks like it's going to rain for the next 4 days :no:

    I ride both stadium and cross country in an Amerigo and love it!! I have the monoflap, but I have sat in the dual flap ones and found them to be extremely well balanced as well. We have a few...

    This is so true!! It's never a problem until it is!! After hauling now with the big truck and gooseneck, I'll never go back to a bumper pull with an SUV. Last October, we had a Jimmy Wofford clinic...

    Thank you so much for your kind words!! The break was definitely good for both of us I think. I showed more last year than I usually do, and we were both just burnt out. As horrible as the accident...
