    Mardi, thank you for posting that. I must admit that the experiences that I have had have left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth for the discipline. It's nice to know that the attitude is not...

    Well Gilroy Gaits could be great except for the hurricane force winds between 3 and 6 predictably every night during summer.

    And that facility also features reiners doing run downs and slide...

    I think it is completely unreasonable to show up for your championship test and have people doing run downs and slide stops next to you. I board at a multi-discipline facility and it is near...

    Everyone has their pluses and minuses, but one thing I've realized over the years: I cannot stand drama with the horses. I need to work with people who are professionals. I have a big, stressful job....

    Working hard since Thurs on a 27 year old horse.

    Did I really just read that?

    I am sorry, but this is not what dressage is about.

    In fact, it offends me. I could care less what you wear,...

    Am I the only not that thinks it is rather unreasonable to take a horse that hasn't been in regular work for four years to a clinic? Seems like a lot to ask of the horse from a fitness standpoint.

    I have a little cow pony myself :) Mine is afraid of cows, hence his career as a dressage horse!

    As the others have noted, you are a little tipped and unbalanced. That makes him kind of switch...

    Just a few notes here - Chelsea and Deborah are in No CA, not So CA. Chelsea is up in the foothills, Deborah is here in the South Bay.

    I'm just a hard working AA bringing along my own horses, showing here on the west coast. I've had some contact with trainers/owners at this level as I ride with a BNT and clinic with others.

    My trainer also uses the Comtek - been using it for years. What you need to do is try different earbuds.

    I have a tiny head, so I use much smaller ones than most people. You just have to try a few...

    One pretty common mistake is to go so deep into a corner that you disrupt balance and forward.

    If I'm reading this right, you were doing intro level (w/t only).

    At that level, much better to...

    Apparently I cannot read for comprehension lol - then I am probably back to having the saddle that you are searching for :)

    The thing is, it completely depends on the horse.

    My old guy - heaven help you if you gave him two days off in a week. He needed to work hard mentally and physically. Lunging made it worse - he...

    Oh sorry - just realizing you are looking for a 15" saddle. Have to say I have never seen a 15" dressage saddle. I am 5'2", 115 and ride in a 17 inch!

    I have one that I have been thinking of selling. I am in CA so that might be a bit of an issue - not sure how much it would cost to ship, etc.

    Mine is probably 5 years old. Has the blocks that are...

    Wipe down after use with a damp cloth to remove sweat. Clean with soap and condition weekly.

    Safest bet is always to just send an email asking the specific rule question and when you get an answer, print it out and keep it in your horse trailer :)

    Check with Laura Hermanson as noted above. I've seen her at quite a few shows and she does very well with the mules.

    They are lovely. I will confess to trying to stable far away from them - the...

    Anyone know what happened to cause the accident? Looked pretty bad from the news accounts. One of the horses appeared upside down.

    I got just piping (not the cantle, etc) - chestnut on my black saddle. I was worried but love it. Really compliments my horse and is very subtle (I am about the least blingy person around.

    I use a similar sheepskin pad under the crank portion of my crank noseband (which I laugh at because I keep it so loose it's kind laughable that it's called a crank).

    Never occurred to me that it...

    Kind of a tough one - may I ask why she is doing tr at 10?

    For me that's the issue - is it soundness, behavior or is it that you just aren't in a regular training program?
