    I'm not sure if having the middleman tack store means more quality control, but you should look up past reviews of Royal Sports tack. There are quite a few horror stories out there.

    Now that would change things. If it's you not wanting to ride 3x a week, instead of the horse not being available, I definitely wouldn't pay for a half lease. I would see if 2x/week or pay-to-hack...

    I don't think it's that bizarre, I just wouldn't pay to groom one day instead of ride. I totally understand the half leasing thing, as I've been doing it for 8+ years as I worked through graduate...

    Agreed that half lease is normally three days of riding. Think Madison is right that just taking a second lesson may be more cost effective. Otherwise I'd see if you can do more like a pay-for-ride...

    Agree with BLB, I love leather for showing but fussy TB needs something fluffy. The Lettia memory foam has kept both of us happy, as he doesn't get rubs and I don't have to deal with gross matted...

    I love my Childeric but I would say it fits more like a Butet, in that it has fit TBs best. The other Childeric at my current barn is also used on a TB. Its done ok on some A-shaped Warmbloods, but...

    I've had good luck with Edgewood, and those are usually findable on eBay or the used tack sites and fb groups for well within your budget. I also really like Five Star Tack, a different sort of feel...

    Ah, well, I definitely wouldn't show in a Sportage. So if you can only have one helmet, you're going to want to upgrade.

    The Tips fit me, but the One K's just. don't. fit. I had a long oval IRH, a Charles Owen, and now the T2. Samshield worked but was out of budget.

    I would lean towards the liner not working, I had...

    Yes, just don't agree to generate a mouse or something, and you'll be fine. Most of the MD/PhD students I know have been successful in finishing within 4, the only one who didn't wanted an extra year...

    I would strongly suggest the half lease. Of course lessoning multiple times is helpful, but I really appreciate having rides without a trainer to work on things myself. Sort of like homework, you see...

    The other risk is, depending on the brand, your 'custom' saddle comes and is nothing like what you ordered. I've had this happen with friends who rode in the perfect saddle, ordered one absolutely...

    I love my Thinline. I know people love their Ogilvys but they're just so big, and I've seen some starting to break down. Maybe the new gummy ones are better.
