    I'm guessing you should go Novice because there will be more inexperienced people who are just getting their feet wet. Am/Owner would be my next guess as to where to start. Open will be heavy with...

    My new Transitions lenses DO get dark in the car, which is great. And they get VERY dark. I still think it's a pita to wear glasses, but having Transitions helps, and I really do enjoy seeing...

    We use white boards at a lot of dog shows where I work gate, and it does help. Sometimes we have large sheets of paper with the order posted, and that is just as good --- you can mark off conflicts,...

    A standard, off the shelf machine isn't going to be sturdy enough. You need something that has the ability to sew through heavy fabric/layers of fabric/nylon strapping. A good old Singer might...

    I say no just based on the stirrup leathers. They are an old style buckle. Makes me wonder if the leather may not be in good shape (dry rotted). Those buckles are usually found on cheap saddles. ...

    I used to keep my bridle path very short --- like was said above, just big enough for the headstall to fit, so maybe an inch or so wide. Still have plenty of mane to fly around, but it's easier to...

    I used green on my sorrel QH. Just don't use white on a black horse --- the white will make it look like a seam opened up and his stuffing is coming out! (Ask how I know...) Red and royal blue...
