    I think it would be easier to find a trainer and haul to them. I also wouldn't except just anybody to jump on my horse, as I would not be willing to do the same for them. I don't know the San Antonio...

    I had one of those pads briefly and I liked it. Didn't end up really needing it, so I sold it, but it was well made and would likely work well in a situation like yours.

    I loved my full buffalo Voltaire. But the grain/buffalo one was nice as well. I owned a saddle that was gran/calfskin as well, and it wasn't as grippy, nor did it seem to hold up as well.

    I had to sell my Voltaire because I bought a horse with a huge shoulder and wide back. I really wanted to get another one, but I spoke to Claude and 1) the wide trees are really hard to come by used...

    I am also 5'6 and long from hip to knee and a 1 flap just plain wouldn't work for me. I could do a 2 flap, but am typically most comfortable in a 3 flap. The CWD L flap is much too straight for me...

    If you like traditional fillis irons, I would just get a pair of cheese grater pads to put in those.

    The price point appeals to me on this helmet, but that's about it. Even at that, I don't think I'd buy it. It's not well ventilated enough for one, and two, I really like my Tipperary helmet for...

    The only pads I have seen that have a specific shim for the area you are describing, are the total saddle fit pads and the saddle fit 4 life pad from thinline.

    I cluck at my horse and call him. He will almost always lift his head and at least half of the time come over to say hi. I don't ride very often, so I go out and pet him, groom him and feed lots of...

    I agree, contact your local Ogilvy dealer. Or try somewhere like Farm House Tack.

    Welcome!

    I think you're heading in the right direction. I have owned two Voltaire Palm Beach saddles that I loved. Both of them I bought used. I think the price you paid sounds fair for the...

    I third or fourth calling The Farm House. They are awesome to work with and typically have lots of great coats at awesome prices.

    My black horse is only black a very small window of the year. What's left of his winter coat is kind of coppery right now. He was a buckskin by the end of summer last year. So far the summer coat...

    I guess I'm a bit confused. I buy the majority of my tack used. I clean all of it when I get it. I will condition as necessary. It's always worked out well for me. Cleaning won't fix a true issue...

    My Ogilvy has only been through 5 rides so far, but I love it and it seems like it will be easy to wash. the mesh on the inside of the cover is a nice feature also. I have toyed with selling it only...

    I'm not a trainer and will never claim to be but I've unfortunately had two horses who reared, with one being much worse than the other. Typically rearing is a resistance to going forward. So you...

    I wouldn't use a standing martingale on one who rears. Rearing is my absolute least favorite thing to try and fix.

    I don't work for the FarmHouse either, but any big sales you have to call. I bought a coat from them once and just called with my size and what I was looking for and they called back with some...

    I just got a Thorowgood T6, which is the precursor to the T8. I really like the saddle after two rides. It has a fairly deep seat without the trapped feeling. It's all synthetic, but very...

    I got my Ogilvy in yesterday and I rode in it last night. I have a fairly large shouldered horse who wears a pretty wide saddle, so I was skeptical of the Ogilvy being too much. However, I am very...

    The italian rubber pull on bell boots would be my first choice (Beval, KL select, etc). However, I wouldn't buy them if I had to take them off every day.

    I don't think leaving bell boots on during...

    I've always been a bit of a tack snob, but when I chose to buy a horse instead of riding my trainer's horses, I had to sell some of my precious stuff.

    I just bought a used Thorowgood saddle for my...
