    I have all three. I haven't broken the Konigs in yet but the one time I wore them they were comfortable-ish for new boots. The Petries are okay, but too stiff for my taste--kind of like having your...

    I think it all depends on the judge. I had a second level test where you hold the counter canter thru the corner, simple change at A and then trot at K. My horse threw in a flying change after the...

    You can also do a licensed officials search on the USEF website and see what shows people have judged. It is one more data point on how popular and what kind of shows they judge.

    USEF consolidated all the AA rules in one place. Unfortunately, amateur to them is the same whether it is H/J or Dressage. The other "gotcha" in the rules that many people don't realize is the one...

    I had a horse that I got on for my warmup for a third level test who completely blew me off in the warmup. (couldn't possibly go sideways even though GP half pass work was easy for him and so on). ...

    If you can, try riding a smaller moving horse. I wish I had done this in the beginning. It is far easier to learn to use your seat when it is actually in the saddle rather than trying to apply the...

    You could try A&D ointment which is sold for diaper rash (don't get the zinc oxide one). This has worked for me for years. I've used Body Glide as well.
