    Did you try the Pikeur Luganas? I ordered two pair from Calevo after someone on here posted a mind-blowing deal on them, and they're definitely old school, waist at your bellybutton breeches. They...

    Is there some difference between an "equestrian" polo and a "regular" one, other than a brand logo that makes them double the cost? I've shown at rated dressage shows in a $10 Old Navy polo when...

    If you're really planning to try and split the difference between commutes, I second the suggestion of Arlington, or eastern Falls Church, so you can easily get 66/Beltway/270. I do that from EFC...

    How big is that Amaretto horse that just went? He looked like a pony! Though perhaps it's just that the man on him is tall.

    I like the rise of more technical fabrics made to move in, in equestrian apparel. However, IME, the cooling shirts only work to cool you if you're active somewhere that the humidity is low enough...

    Ah, that's an entirely different matter. The jumper show I didn't bathe for, the temperature was 25 when I pulled into the show grounds ;) Your weather is a perfectly acceptable bath temperature!

    I think this is a great suggestion, Carol, if these young riders' trainer hasn't already given them one. They may simply not have any idea of pre-show expectations.

    That said, around here, I...

    So I recently ordered a combo back of soap and balm to keep at home, for things like shoes, etc., and have discovered a small "problem" ;) with the balm. Apparently my dog thinks it's food! I had...

    FITS had some pimple gripper ones for a while (maybe not rubber, but definitely something synthetic, not leather), but per a barnmate who had them, they were less grippy than regular fullseats.

    How odd. Do they not do any gymnastic or grid work? Trotting in there is pretty common, as are exercises where there is some trotting of fences involved.

    I've done a fair bit of jumping from the walk with mine. In our case, it is because she can get very revved up about jumping, and that forces her to slow down, relax, and take her time. The first...

    I thought it was excellent, and loved the film, and the direction.

    But while it is not at all "Woody Allen" it is what one would call "artsy," so I am guessing would not be to your tastes.

    Just look for the old ones with collars! You can get them for a steal, most of the time. I think I paid $30 each for the last two Mikus I bought, and they're dreamy! The super pale lilac check,...

    I assume in the jumping disciplines, it's for the reasons mentioned above--the length of stride and size in relation to fence, which makes a mental difference to the rider, anyway.
