    OP are you shipping domestic or international? I just shipped my new custom saddle back to the maker in England. I used a large box from Homedepot and bubble wrap. I hope it arrives ok.

    Just a note about coats in overhead bins...someone will happily crush it with their bag as they try to jam it in. I would put it in last or keep it with you if you are carrying on.

    I've had my tack moved, trailer moved, etc. It doesn't bother me as long as nothing is damaged and my stuff is treated respectfully.
    I think it is a little weird that someone would feel otherwise...

    In the same boat

    I have my fingers crossed for you too! I have a giant, lazy, unraced TB. He has zero natural impulsion and I think he'd prefer to do western pleasure if you asked him. He does beautiful changes in...

    Have you all put the bands on at the tightness suggested? I started using this, but I had to put it on much looser to get my horse used to it. Wondering if most people do put it on the recommended...

    I've had great luck ordering there, but the items did take a while to arrive. They came within the posted timeline, but it was a few weeks. I've never contacted them though.

    Estradiol Cypionate

    I've been getting vet bills for my horse and I assumed that Estradiol Cypionate was another name for Regumate which our filly needs as she's really hormonal.

    I finally looked it up and I was...

    Pattnic- if you give me dimensions, I'll happily make you a stick figure.

    Farmgirl- the saddle fitters measure from hip bone to center of knee, and then from center of knee to ankle. This...

    I'm so glad that is helpful for other people!

    I'm finding it useful, but now the saddle maker needs to know what flap size I want. I have no idea! Somehow I need to figure out how these diagrams...
  15. Real diagrams- scientificish

    Here are my stick drawings, rendered in Excel to make sure that the angles are correct and the lengths are consistent.

    My femur measures 23" (58.4cm) and my calf measures 19.35" (48.9cm), so I...

    Thanks Trixie- I'm not required to get knee blocks but I like them, so the dilemma is whether ones on top in that molded way would be ok for hunters. Or really thigh blocks are what I think they...

    Sorry the poprocks didn't work for you.

    I took my horse off of Ugard and about a month later he started getting spooky, and then acting worse and worse. This went on for a few weeks or so. I...

    To RolyPolyPony- I'm really excited about it, and trepidatious at the same time. I hope that it fits, because it is a large chunk of change for me to spend on a saddle I've never sat in that also...
