    I'm similarly curvy and the pipers were terrible. The looked so cute while I was standing, but did the crotch walk as soon as I moved. The waistband was also on the loose side.

    Most of the practice bucking stock at school were the kids ranch horses on the weekend. The kids would buck them out, then pull off the tack and ride them back to the trailers or stalls bareback in...

    No advice, just sympathy, and I'm impressed you lasted this long. I had a co-worker while I was a working student who was like this, and genuinely did not understand that this behavior was...

    My last house was in a 100 year flood plain. Getting flood insurance was no big deal, nearly every house where I was living carried flood insurance, I don't recall in being terribly expressive r...

    Is this a good thing or a bad thing? My internet slang is equivalent to that of a cranky 80 year old man yelling at kids to stay off his lawn.

    I would also like to take this moment to apologize...

    With the caveat that I've only ridden in my dressage boots a couple times (just got them) I noticed I was able to relax more because it kept my ankle more still and in the stirrup better. I also...

    Heaven forbid you go there in breeches! I've been in several times before work in breeches and boots and they follow me around, looking over from the next aisle, like I'm going to steal something. ...

    Get an mri. A blow to the bent knee (landing while kneeling, hitting knees in car dashboard) is the biggest cause of pcl tears. You may have to keep fighting to get a diagnosis and the sooner you...

    That was perhaps the most amazing exercise video I've ever seen! I have a somewhat ridiculous need to go work out with it.

    I would struggle with the push ups, but I could do everything except the...

    I also like the idea of working on creating a pain scale for her. It may help her to analyze what type of pain she's feeling as well as a level and be able to handle it more calmly.

    I also wonder...

    This is going to sound like I'm being contrary, but I swear I'm actually curious. How would you feel if the seller's answer was that they're beliefs were private? While I'm generally very open...

    Thanks to this thread I just ordered a pair of Pipers to try. I also just ordered a pair of Ovation DXs for super cheap (and most of them are pretty affordable on there) on horseloverz so I'll edit...

    I got my zipper at JoAnns. It was one of the really heavy duty parka ones. I had to cut the end off mine because it was a dual separating (just wrap a bunch of wraps of thread around the cut end),...
  17. Replaced the zipper on my tall boots all by myself!

    I dare any cobbler to tell me its hard to replace a zipper now. In the midst of my desparate search for new tall boots (since I'm riding english for my new job) zipper #3 blew out in my tall boots...

    I'd try another cobbler. I would think that a decent cobler could run a whip stitch around the zipper to protect it and then be able to stretch it, especially as it doesn't sound like you're...

    Have you tried riding in a different seat sizes? I'm wondering if because of the flatter seat on most jumping saddles you're able to move more and getting a larger seat size in a dressage saddle...

    I was afraid that might be the answer. It's so frustrating because half a centimeter is such a small amount and Konigs are the only ones that might fit without going full custom. :no: I really...
  21. Will Konigs stretch 0.5 cms in the calf?

    After reading size charts and prices until I've gone cross-eyed, I've settled on a pair of Konigs Favorit Specials, so now I'm trying to decide if I can get away with semi custom (about $100 cheaper)...

    I'm in school to be a personal trainer. I don't fit into the typical personal trainer type (to quote propspony, I am not a jock-beast), so I'm hoping to work with the the older generation to help...
  24. Pisano riding boot repair still open?

    I would like to get in touch with them (since the general consensus in here seems to be that they're one of the best) but their website is down. Are they still open? If not, who do y'all recommend?
