    do you have more of an oval or round shaped head? Certain helmets are better for one or the other. I have an oval head and the rounder helmets give me that feeling of having pressure on my forehead...

    I had a big strong draft cross and what ended up working with him (so that he didn’t curl and tuck btv) or pull was a center revolver bit with hooks. I don’t even know where to find them now. I had...

    I think he is maybe technically downhill, looking at all of the photos. BUT, if he is the one I think he is on FLF, he doesn’t seem to move downhill. My girl is DH as well, but most trainers I’ve...

    Just curious... A friend of mine has a Kris S horse that is seemingly going to be tough. It sounds like maybe that comes with the territory?

    Over a month later and I haven't gotten any response from the company. I've sent what I really considered to be 3 very nice emails. Leaving open all options from widening/reworking my saddle to...

    Thanks to all of you for your comments and input. Four fittings weren’t all with the same fitter. The lesson learned for me in all of this is to go with the fitter that you respect and have the...

    You are smart in my opinion. I should have listened to my fitter that told me to find a reasonably fitting adjustable saddle (and pad if necessary) until my horse was 5 1/2 before going custom. i...

    BFNE, we definitely think alike! I am using the ecogold, as it minimizes the shifting. If I really crank the girth down (like multiple times through a ride as tight as I can get it), I can keep the...

    And it does seem like my horse is not an easy fit. She is an ottb that is short backed, uncharacteristically wide with a rising topline and not much space for a saddle. This is why I went custom,...

    I have had two saddles custom made from the same company. The first was fitted by a local (to my state) fitter but turned out to be not comfortable for me or fit my horse (I had posted about that...

    Expectations for custom saddles

    I’m really struggling with this right now. What are the thoughts from the rest of you about what is reasonable to expect from paying for a saddle that is fitted (either in person or long distance)...

    Sing Mia Song, that site is brilliant! Thanks for sharing. I am going to start today! probably in the outdoor, but it looks like some will be suitable for the small covered arena as well!

    I do have the Linda Allen books. Great reminder, guys, thanks! I'll have to look for Cherry Hill's. Rode in the covered arena last night. Yikes. 50x90 will get small quickly. I'm lucky to have...

    I do have a quite large outdoor arena that I use if I can get there during the light and before it snows (they won’t plow it until spring once it starts snowing).
  18. Ideas for winter work in a small covered arena

    I am lucky this late fall/winter to have a covered arena to work in with my young horse and keep her going, but given that it is only 50x70, I will need to be very creative to keep it interesting. I...

    Berney Bros Grand Prix Olympic

    Ok, I’m now batting 0-3 on saddles for my horse, two of which were custom made. I’ve come to find out that being a croup high wide ottb mare, that she is unlikely to ever fall into a cheap saddle...

    Ha! I just saw this in the dressage forum and passed it on to my friend. Who is not quite ready to get another tb, but close. Hopefully someone gets her.

    I am going to leave the facility. It is crushing in many ways. I will miss the place horribly and the kids, but theoretically I need to be in a “regular” lesson program to be there. I think more...
