    "Not up to warmblood championship quality"
    comes across to me as a blatant example of prejudice. Period.
    If he had said 'not up to championship quality" that may have been...

    I'm intrigued - haven't seen them before. How do they work? I assume they charge all day on solar power and come on at night, sort of like street lights?
    I wonder how many you would need to light up...

    I don't really have a dog in this fight but was just wondering - what is your evidence that treeless saddles distribute weight as well and evenly as a well fitted treed saddle?

    Hello, I'm a bit late to this conversation, and there have been some wise, sensitive replies here. I don't have a lot to add, except maybe to point out that we can't love anything with the same...

    Not a fan of bling. I find it distracting and unnecessary. I also don't much care for the saggy browbands; I'm not quite sure what those are all about.

    A well bred ShagyaArabian, of course:D - they're like warmbloods in an Arab suit.

    All of the best traits that are sought after in the Arab/WB cross have been achieved by the Hungarians when they...

    I started riding at age 4 - bareback on a sassy little pony - when I was 11, my mom found a book called "The Complete Training of Horse and Rider" by Alois Podjhasky, and gave it to me for my...

    If I did that, I can guarantee I'd have heatstroke, faint and fall off. My internal thermostat doesn't work any more. I get overheated fast - like a faulty radiator in the Sahara. No way can I wear...

    Ditto.
    Mine are from Bit of Britain too - 3/4" - no problem; they're nice.
    Why wouldn't 3/4" leathers be safe?

    I pulled a groin last winter - not sure how it happened - it may have been during some work without stirrups. . . anyway - these things take a long time to heal. I kept riding through it, but gently,...
