    Thank you all for your opinions! I definitely anticipated and expected a wide variety of comments. I used to do the rated stuff as a junior so I know these would be considered a bit "out of the...

    Can't decide if it's a camera trick or simply the way he's standing, but I am thinking a touch long in the pastern in the front? Hard to tell without a proper angle on the conformation shot.

    You're welcome! To be honest when I saw the photos in the Dover mag I thought they would be a lot flashier looking but when I saw them in person I really fell in love!

    I know everyone I know lol :yes:

    I have had a lot of knee dislocations/surgery so it is a precarious balance between getting something tall enough and having it dislocate my knees while breaking...

    Everyone has given you very sound advice on this horse's lameness evaluation. Since you paid for a PPE, I am assuming you are wanting the horse you purchase to be medically cleared to be sound by...

    Thanks all! I went through the rule book as well and that was my interpretation.

    I thought so!
  12. Amateur Status Debate: Help me clear this one up

    A friend and I were having a debate about the rule, and I'm pretty sure I'm right, but thought no harm done coming to COTH to clear it up.

    Welcome to Chester County! Great horse country for hunters. Budget will definitely be a factor in the area. Does that $825 include your lesson/training fees? I have heard good things locally about...

    This is correct. Not only are the saddles not meant to withstand a daily adjustment, it is not a quick, easy process. It would be ungainly and time consuming to do so between rides not to mention...

    I sized down from 28R in TS Trophy Hunters to 26R in the Pipers. I would say the rise is a modest low rise, meaning it doesn't ride down low on your hips.
