    Can anyone help me figure out how to order from BR? I REALLY love one of their browbands and it's exactly what I've been looking for for several years but I can't find a way to purchase it.

    Wow, I really like him. I don't know what it is about him, but he has the same expression as my guy did when I picked him up, and he turned out to be fabulous.

    Great post by flyracing!

    I agree with all who have said you should work from shoulder fore/shoulder in. Additionally, your horse must be ON your aids and working forward, ready to go forward AS...

    I don't think anyone has mentioned in this thread yet that your horse needs to give you a trot that you CAN sit. If your horse is not really through and isn't moving with suspension and "schwung",...

    YES ^^ Patience has one of those little sponge-in-yellow-box, shaped sort of like an 8, that is an essential element of our ringside "touch up bucket".

    That's fantastic! If he's anything like...

    I've wondered about this as well! I believe my trainer's Petries were shined professionally and she's very picky about how they're treated, but I don't know what the secret is. Mine are pretty dull,...

    I'm 5'3 with a long femur but proportionally short legs. I ride in a 17.5 (dressage saddle) with a short flap comfortably. I think that it depends pretty greatly on the shape and balance of the...

    I always wonder the same thing when I read posts like this. I greatly prefer a crank because they offer so much more adjustability than a plain cavesson, and I certainly do NOT crank mine tight. Not...

    Ask for a change only after your horse is as supple and balanced in the counter canter as he is on the correct lead.

    I guess I'm in the minority in that I didn't really learn to ride (dressage)...
