    Seems like I've heard or read that many prefer the ring style because it's easier to keep intact. The ends of the figure 8 section don't slip out of the loops on the crownpiece section. I admit...

    Huh, I'm not reading anything that sounds remotely dangerous.

    Second lateral work but if you're not ready for that, the more transitions the better. Transitions between gaits, transitions within...

    How long has this been going on? I've known more than one horse who was solid and had no stop til sold and pushed too fast. They became stoppers - 1 was very dirty about it, too - and never got...

    Our local hunt does the occasional hunter trial, and there are classes for pairs (maybe pairs/ groups - it's been a while) as well as individuals, and you can run a couple of times. Lucinda Green...

    Not any help to you but curious to know the benefits of this design. Seems functionally like rings to me, though a little less adjustable because the leather is more fixed.

    Well, I'm 5'7" with long legs and bought a 16" used Stackhouse to ride in while I was waiting for my custom one to arrive, and competed in it at training (including dressage), so I guess you know how...

    Best way ever to convince me to read a blog - and I wasn't disappointed. Thanks for the laughs - and go you! (Also, will it ever after be DFP?)

    It's so rare that I disagree with BFNE, and I don't know why I care all that much about this, but I did a little surfing about CO helmet anatomy and it confirmed that the padding around your head is...

    Not to dissuade you from buying a new helmet if that's what you want to do, but it looks like CO recommends replacement after 5 years after purchase or 2000 hours of use. See...

    Second Toklat - they fit my very forward flap saddle perfectly, last forever, come in a zillion colors, and don't shrink (well, I air dry them).

    well, since I arrived at one event without my suit bag and boots (yep, I still rode - I get by with a little help from my friends and all of that), I'm pretty addicted to my personal list, which I...

    And that picture, Gypsymare, is one reason I've drawn such a deep line in the sand for myself on this issue that I won't even look at the pictures: he's gorgeous. I'm sure I'd be more willing to...

    Reading "prospect" the way I use it - a horse that's not already doing at least what you want to with it - I'm kind of surprised that people are so willing to accept bows. With so many clean legged...

    Agree with BFNE. I wonder if the clinic situation explains part of it - e.g. horse needed a standing and was wearing a figure 8, and no other noseband was available - and that maybe there was some...

    Yahoo for cocoa puffs!! Switching from my beautiful navy jacket, shirt and stock tie - polka dotted and all - to a short sleeved seersucker shirt was one of my favorite competition ritual changes a...

    I'll chime in because I was just shopping for a prospect off the track and am one who didn't call on her, not because she's not cute - although she's a little older and a little smaller than I'd have...

    Wish I had the solution for you - I've temporarily settled on a single jointed D in my similar search - but wanted to suggest that you borrow a myler before buying one. I bought the comfort snaffle...

    Um, Sunshine Lion is about the cutest thing ever and looks like an eventer. If I had a farm and could take a chance on one without sitting on him, he'd be first on my list.

    I wonder where you heard it too. I've always understood them to be legal. The rulebook doesn't mention rings on a figure 8, and the picture isn't all that enlightening, but the picture of the...

    Confidence and all the good schooling in the world don't necessarily mean that your 5 year old TB is going to react appropriately in the warmup or when the judge rings the bell just as you pass. ...

    She is the one who taught me never to take a clinic I haven't audited first. Had I been among the faint of heart, I might have bowed out when her program - which is inflexible - didn't work for my...

    I might audit, if it were close and free, but will never ride in a clinic with her again. She's a brilliant rider though.

    I've ridden with a yoke in dressage many times, recognized, without ever a comment - even from the judge who attempted to dress me down (no pun intended) for not wearing a jacket at a 1 day, so...
