    The new britches from FITS are pretty dang sticky. They squeak a little bit -- but not too bad. Might bother some sensitive/green horses (as in Manamanah's post above), but not my tame fellow. I've...

    Absolutely! Until the horse I have right now, I used ranch horses who had no talent for ranch work, OTTB's, Grades, Arabs and Half-Arabs. Did all right, too. My Grade jumper was a competitive fellow,...
