    I've never tried their jackets but I have a couple pairs of their breeches and like them. They're cute and they've held up nicely. Not the quality of Pikeur or anything, but they are also a third...

    I bought one from Dover when I first started doing dressage a couple of years ago. At the time I just wanted a schooling quality snaffle and it seemed to fit the bill. The flash fell off (it was...

    Need more information to offer a useful assessment.

    Is the horse a hunter? Jumper? Eq horse?

    How is the horse built? Does the 15.3 hand horse take up a lot of leg?

    I have always insured my performance horses in the hopes of "wasting" every premium dollar. I did appreciate the peace of mind that came from knowing that I could make treatment decisions based on...

    I used to swear by the gum rubber pull on bell boots made by Beval. They do work beautifully and if you get the gum color (not the black or white) they are actually pretty easy to get on and off, as...

    I agree that the gear you keep in your trailer will vary depending on how you plan to use it. You've gotten good ideas so far.

    In mine, I put a rug down in the dressing room to help keep things...

    Put the duct tape on by itself. Looks odd but works great, and it will fall off by itself without causing any damage at all.

    I think you would be fine with a black helmet. That said, I love love love my navy coat and I wear it with a navy OneK; I found the helmet on sale and splurged on both a navy and a black version. ...

    I agree that outside sales might be a good option. Depending on the product/service and territory involved, the travel might be pretty minimal.
