    I don't know if he still does clinics, but Ray Texel was one of my all-time favorites.

    I always answer this question with "anything Rambo". Yes, expensive, but they LAST. I just sold my old Supreme sheet and medium after 10 YEARS of use. Both are still waterproof (with no re-touching,...

    Use your hairdryer to gently warm the sticky mess. Makes it easy to wipe off.

    Adding bulk is likely to make the problem worse.
    Wither clearance has to happen in three places: right at the front; at the rear (often under the rider); and from side-to-side. From your...

    A note on the Prestige saddles... For the high/long wither horse, you'll want flocked panels, which allow for greater clearance than foam.

    Another vote for Prestige. You can get a new Roma Jump for $2100, and it's a great fit for the high/long wither back. I have one and LOVE it. Synthetic flocking, so it can be adjusted if necessary,...

    I ride with a GoPro Hero, and I can tell you the adhesive is TOUGH (no screws or other attachment points) and the mount that holds the camera to the base is very secure. That camera is not coming...

    Check out the Prestige Roma jump. A very good fit for the TB build. :)

    OP, you're getting a lot of different opinions because every single rider is built as uniquely as every single saddle. Choose what feels good (comfortable, balanced, secure) to you and your horse,...

    I vote blue. :)

    The Prestige Atena Flaps is my current favorite.

    That particular coat may have been a bit small, but more likely what you were seeing was the gap created by lowrise breeches under the shad points.

    Youtube has a lot of "how to fit your western saddle" videos.

    Tailored Sportsman made a tie-dye breech a couple seasons ago. You may be able to find a pair on Ebay.

    Call any tack shop that carries your saddle and they can easily get the bolts for you. They are not available for direct-to-consumer sale.

    I don't read the Driving forum often, but I'm glad I stopped by to see this fine tribute to a Truly Grand Jog Cart. Well written. :lol:

    RIP, Oh Cart of Many Talents.

    The Ariat Devon Pro VX has a wider last and toe box than the other models. For the really wide foot, the Dublin Venturer pull-on does the trick.

    Rather than pad placement, it's much more likely your saddle isn't fitting correctly - specifically the panel clearance at the sides of the withers. Put your saddle on without a pad and girth it as...

    So, my next test is always a clean white saddle pad on a (relatively) dirty back. Sweat marks are not always definitive, but they do tell a story. Also, put your saddle on (again, no pad) girth it as...

    First, sorry you're having such trouble!

    From the photo of your adorable pony's topline, an M Toulouse would not have been my choice for fit. Between the tree shape and the gusseted panels, they...

    Prestige Roma is a good fit for this back - what model did you not like? I can tell you how it compares.

    Check his hocks? If he's trying to protect them, he may be swinging in to avoid normal flexion.
