    Bottom line is this is not a saddle problem, or a pony problem, or a saddle fitter problem The problem is that you are big for this pony, not a lot you can do about that. You're an adult--in other...

    I think we have found the crux of your problem.

    A saddle has to fit BOTH rider and horse. If there's a choice, it needs to fit the rider--the horse side of the equation can be compensated for...

    As a project pony, I might match you up with this horse, but that a larger one would suit you better.

    Second time I have seen a tack thread on COTH this week, with my first thought being...hmmm we don't have the whole story here. It's not just the saddle, it's who sits in it and how. That would be...

    Slow twist snaffle.

    Or

    Short shank pelham operated by a rider who can use just the snaffle when needed, or add a little curb rein if necessary. I would never remove the curb chain from a...

    You guys aren't getting it....the ticket prices said all. It was a VIP event, for VIP's, about VIP's, and was all about "ME-I'm a VIP."

    Those associated with it who weren't VIP's work for them...

    Denny is no saint, either. There is something in the horse world for everyone. It's a matter of style. If you don't like GM's (or anyone else's for that matter), just move along.

    Maybe Butterball could benefit from some time off.

    He does look sour, and stiff, and like maybe someone with experience should put him back to work for a refresher course in good citizenship...

    No braiding bills (unless you braid for classics).

    A different (and rather fun) dress code.

    Yes, you pack your whole life--as much as you would need, which depends on things other than what...

    That was no look of terror on his face. He took his spurs and turned them UP before he got on Hickstead. He wasn't able to control Hickstead in the warmup well enough to even take his allotted...

    1) Get a job that pays 2K per month so you can meet your budget without his help.

    2) Get him a boat

    3) Realize that doing either of the above or both won't fix your problem

    It's pretty...

    Where have I been? Hmm not hanging out on the internet recently.

    The advice given is disgraceful.

    The horse looks like it needs schooling. A six year old, with a kid. Good project. ...

    The inaugural PG Championship was a mess, from ineligible winners, to eligible winners that gamed the system to remain so.

    The thief herself found you from a list you shared? And offered to sell the saddles to you?

    That's bold.

    Wouldn't that depend on the age of the horse and how far along it was to begin with?

    You're uncomfortable because you realize that you aren't quite ready for what you propose doing.

    You've improved a lot! Your pony is cute, honest when in familiar surroundings, and frankly, a bit tame for you now!

    Where do you want your riding to go from here?
