    I'm already down to a 7 1/8 (58) from my usual 7 1/4 (60 GPA). It's snug; I know I couldn't go any smaller, unfortunately.

    Well, my new Hampton showed up. And I can't really decide what to make of it. Fits quite well, but seems unbelievably tall and mushroomy. Sits all the way down as it should, but I feel like a Pez...

    I like SSG's Hybrid gloves and their Lycrochet crochet-backed gloves. They're the only ones that really fit me, well, like a glove.

    All others (including and especially Heritage) seem unusually...

    With the additional discount Dover is offering on Chas Owen, the Hampton is $170. Pretty compelling.

    Thanks, everyone. I'm fine with ordering from someone out of my area by phone or electronically, it's just that finding a retailer who carries a range of velvet options is a bit of a...

    Saddle Fitter (independent) Chicagoland

    I know both Saddler's Row and Barrington offer saddle fitting services on-site. Does anyone have a recommendation of one or the other? Someone different?

    My mare is looking a little backsore,...
  10. Int'l Helmet Awareness Day: who stocks velvet?

    With International Helmet Awareness Day coming up this Saturday, I'm thinking it may finally be time to buy a velvet, flesh-harnessed helmet for hunting.

    Charles Owen is participating, but I've...

    I don't really have an opinion on equine dentistry as I've only ever used my vet to float, but I rationalize it like this. Given the multitudinous ways in which my horse causes me to hemorrhage...

    I have stable pros, too. Corded, but pretty darn quiet, IMO. Perfect for faces and legs.

    Knee and ankle pain: wraps? Wide treads?

    As I march into my latter-30's, I'm getting some serious left knee pain ( and milder pain in both ankles) when I hunt or whenever I'm in the saddle for a long time. Are the wraps worth a try? Do they...
  16. Shipping (horse goods, not horses) into the US from elsewhere-- a question

    Not directly Hunter Jumper related other than the fact that it concerns a close contact saddle and a hunt cap. Just curious to hear from others who may know more than I.

    A couple of weeks ago, I...

    Evaluation form is your friend

    Fill out an evaluation form via the USEF website if you genuinely feel like show management and judging was poor enough to warrant it. It's free and anonymous. If your objective is to let the show...

    Goldie, I'm a little confused by your post. Are your responding to me, or just quoting me?

    There is no judgment in my post at all-- no "beating up" of the hunter division over their mouthpieces. ...

    Eh, college students have far more flexibility in scheduling than most adult riders do. If it's good coaching you want, that's not so far (on an interstate).
