    They may disappear in the show ring; on the other hand, they may hand around as a vestige of another time, like the ribbons on gifts, which serve no function other than decoration, but which once...

    I'm very short (5') with a natural pear shape, and Ariat is my favorite brand. I'll be interested to hear if the Ariats you ordered work. I wear an Ariat 24, but it's a generous 24, and the fit is...

    I remember those handmade chokers. Some of our Pony Club moms used to make them and sell them as a fundraiser. I remember a pretty yellow paisley one I had.

    Thanks, all. I am so thrilled with it. I love the little touches I wasn't expecting, like the gold buttons on the back and my name engraved on the Stubben plate. It also is much lighter than my old...

    She said it is a shaped quilted pad. If so, I would imagine it would be perfectly suitable for a schooling show.

    Thanks, Paradox. Yes, that's me. I make any horse look big :lol:, but Mira is actually a bit taller than Sky. She's a true 16 hands; Sky is just under at 15.3 1/2. I notice a difference when I groom;...

    Hi, everyone--just a quick update since I am out of town--

    This is what jumped out at me from your post. You should really re-think this. They will gouge you otherwise. It's the actual price of the car that matters, not how much the payments are. You can...

    PS--if you want to learn a bit about dressage, I recommend watching some of the Jane Savoie videos on youtube. All the ones I've seen are good, and they cover topics from basic to advanced.

    Agree with the above responses you've received. You need some good basic dressage lessons, and your horse needs to go to someone who can put good ground manners on him and do basic flatwork with him....

    I agree. We had very generous landowners back in the day. One area where we used to have "drill" is now a subdivision. Another is a wildlife preserve. No riding there now.

    Just the usual pre-wedding jitters. Mom and I argued about a lot of stupid stuff for weeks beforehand, so that didn't help.
