    +1 for Troxel helmets. I just purchased one with the dial (crank it in to make it smaller, let it out as they grow) for my three year old and it works well. Have fun riding with your little ones!

    I had the same challenges with my OTTB: he was a mellow saint on days above 70 degrees, and wild man/saddle bronc on all others. Here's what worked for me:

    While I'm not there, I just saw a copy of the "flat routine". No groups of riders flatting together this year, it seems. Looks sort of like a dressage test...volte and all. Yikes! I'm interested...

    Horrible customer service and communication when I was demoing a saddle a few years ago. In fact, it cost him my business - when I finally did get in touch with him, Tad acted like he was doing me a...

    @ Just My Style: one more bending over trick that my PT (a former H/J rider, herself, it turns out!) taught me that might help...it's all about the two point. When you bend over, hold your core and...

    I too, had a herniated disc, and after 2+ years of chiro/acupuncture, you name it - I finally had surgery (lumbar discectomy) in December to repair it. I finally feel like I have my life back!

    My advice? Take care of yourself - and don't push it. If you are anything like me, you'll want to go all out physically, in the clinic (because, hey, it's GM!!) and give it your all. You may end...

    I agree with Dun - the buffalo will definitely wear better in the long run, especially if you wear jeans when you ride. I have a grain buffalo CWD that I absolutely love - it's grippy and...

    Oooh, thanks for this post! I'm 11 weeks along and have been going back and forth about what to do - doctor says no riding after the first trimester, but I've been contemplating the "no jumping,...

    During my recent saddle search I tried the TC (fit my horse, but too hard and flat for my liking) and the Butet (I loved it, horse did not) and ultimately went with a CWD (win-win for everyone). ...
