    Days of one size of Saddle

    All of the recent talk about saddle fit, saddle fitters and reflocking and the like has gotten me thinking.

    I'm not that old but I remember a time when everyone had basically the same saddle. It...

    I'd suggest taking a few lessons from a trainer who has a lot of sales horses and a fairly large program with a lot of amateurs in it or else a breeding farm which has babies.

    Invest in a trunk stand. It...

    I think the large trunks are a good size. They hold a lot of stuff but aren't so prohibitively large that you can't load them up and take them to a show. Be careful about getting one too big, if you...

    I'm not sure with long femurs that you will fit in a pony saddle. I am about your size and long from hip to knee and ride in a 16 1/2 saddle. My leg goes off over the flap in a pony saddle.

    Don't count on being able to bring in your own shavings at the grounds you are talking about. Budget about $12/bag. I think it is a little less but they charge tax on the shavings. We generally do...

    We've been on the other side of the coin with trainers favoring other clients. Our last trainer managed it horribly. She ended up without a business once her big name client went to college. ...

    Try stabilized rice bran. It packs weight on them without making them hot. It is also great for their coats. It isn't too expensive. 1-2 lbs a day will make a difference you can see in usually...

    Try washing it every day (this is key) with head and shoulders or a medicated dandruff shampoo.

    I have had great success with this. It also works with horses who get that gunky sweat stuff on...

    Have both, will buy Mattes next time I need one.

    Mattes does sell a half pad in which you can add shims. It might be a tad higher.

    Love how the Mattes washes much better than the...
  12. tall boots

    My daughter is the same. She's about a 9 1/2-10 foot with a very looong lower leg. The only off the rack boots that have fit her are the Monacos. I am not thrilled with the quality of the leather....
  13. Barn with more clients

    We moved from a barn where my daughter was riding by herself most afternoons to a barn where there are a lot of people.

    Hands down we love the barn with more people.

    It is a give and take. We...

    Phoenix West has them as well. They are not cheap. Phoenix West does offer them in raw wood which you could paint and seal to match your barn colors. That is a bit cheaper. They also offer...

    I remember as a child watching in awe Touch of Class and Joe Fargis.

    Recently had the opportunity for my daughter to clinic with him and he was wonderful. Southern gentleman to the core.

    There are many times where a horse who is on antibiotics or who needs dex for an allergic reaction could be healthy to show.

    I have two daughters who ride. Both are very tall and were outgrowing saddles almost faster than I could find them.

    They had Pessoas, Pessoa AO Jrs, Bevals and a random Prestige.
