    It seems as though you weren't the only one who got their Christmas wish. Red looks smugly happy in the photo! He looks so sweet--you're bound to have a lot of happy times together.

    One of my horses is built downhill, so collecting him has been a challenge. It's fine--even essential--to half halt the horse upward, but then you have to give with your hands, really send the horse...

    I had a recent bad experience with ebay and, as the buyer who never received the product I ordered, found that I had no recourse. Apparently ebay owns PayPal, so they are totally in bed together. :(...

    The Genesis Spcl fit my horse like a glove immediately, but it took longer to "break in" to me. ;) Love it now.

    Maude, I had the same experience as Alto. Rep delivered the saddle, made sure it fit, and came back 8 weeks later to tweak it. No charge for any of it. As I hinted at before, I think you got a bad...

    Maude, I'm sorry for your horrible experience. Did the rep actually measure the saddle or did you place an order based on the number on your friend's saddle? If the rep measured--which s/he should...

    Tough one because there's no frame of reference here on prices. Are you accustomed to prices in Wellington, Florida, for instance? If so, everything else is going to look cheap. ;) A PSG pony won't...

    I love the Genesis Special w/biomax, but saddles are a very personal thing. Like our horses, we all have different shapes/sizes, so what is great for one person/horse will be a nightmare for someone...

    You just blew a hole in your own argument. ;) Isabel is a dressage rider, not a hunter princess. I also didn't know about fluphenazine.

    Great COTH article you may have missed

    This article is about a clinic given by an event rider, so you may not have seen it. It's great and so applicable to dressage (or any discipline, for that matter).

    Premier's training kit works very well and is in your budget.

    ETA: I live in the NE, so I store mine indoors in the winter to help preserve it. It's 4 years old and still looks new.

    My newest horse--a 3 year old--did this and she had had some Parelli training. It's an annoying habit but, like any habit, can be broken if you are 100% consistent with your aids. When I asked for...
