    I LOVE the equifit.

    I also love the thinline ultra trifecta if you want a smidge less thickness. (I'd suggest ordering black.)

    Both do wonders for the sensitive backed horses I put them on,...

    I'd offer fewer section options- do each level open to all horses and riders. Offer one speed round/TFJO/power and speed and one blue ribbon at each height. Then offer the child adult division.

    Good tack does outlast horses unless you have to buy a whole new one if any part of it breaks.
