    Dear Breeches Designers,

    I can't imagine any reason why someone would "need" draw reins and a curb effect.

    The only rated speed show I ever went to, someone actually ran a barrel pattern in draw reins. At first I thought...

    On the other hand, my appendix mare with decent withers and "feminine linebacker shoulders" is STILL getting rubs, not as bad as other blankets though. No rubs on the shoulder, just on her chest....

    My heart horse died extremely suddenly in January. To tell you how suddenly, I was planning on riding that day. He had zero health problems. We think it was colic.

    I always thought that I was in...

    5'2", two horses 16-16.1 hh, also a 13.3 hh pony.

    My main ride was a 14.2 1/2 hh appy with a wider barrel. So long as we weren't by a fence or other horses, I easily made him look at least a full...

    When I went down to KY for a horsebowl competition early November, we drove past a building, a bank maybe? called Thorobred. Bugged me to no end.
