    Agreed with above posters - I don't like the look of buckles and H&S's are a pain in the butt to open without a hoof pick!

    The way I feel/see it is like my horse is bending in half (not -really-, but the minds-eye visual helps) while keeping the shoulders going straight down the long side.

    ^ What I personally do is transitions. WT, WC, all that good stuff!
    Also, change it up a bit, perhaps? Do 10, 15, 20 m circles, ask for a 'bit more forward' trot and then bring it back. Leg yield,...

    I really really live Aveeno's Seaweed Sulfate Free Dry Shampoo.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm just not 100% how the Skarlett will look just because of the side vents... I do like the Horseware Coat as well, and the price is awesome!
    Anyone have any suggestions...

    I have an 'The Elite' 100% wool coat and it makes me look stumpy and box-shaped. Boo! I always end up sitting on the ends of...
