    I wouldn't, but only because I don't like em personally. If I could afford another pair of custom boots I would get a pair in brown for everyday. I love that look.

    If you want em and your...

    I think everyone is right so far - your boots are going to drop a bit when they break in, so that gap will be closer to your calf. The look now for boots is the stiff straight line stovepipe, so it...

    Oh, I think you have the right to be annoyed. I have 7 acres of mostly wooded property that backs up to a large farm. A couple of people have permission from the farmer to hunt the property. I...

    Not the world's best pictures, but you'll get the idea.

    I have also included the Delfina,...

    People either love or hate TSF. It works well for my horse, and is a reasonable price.

    The Nunn Finer girth are nice, but there is substantial difference between those and the TSF/Fairfax/County...

    It's so subjective. There is one who has been named on this thread that I would never pay to ride with again. I actually not so jokingly suggested to the organizer that I was owed a refund after...

    The few that I have seen seem to be pricey for the quality & training relative to the current competition ring dressage market.

    In addition, the couple that I have seen in person in the ring all...

    I have a narrow twist with a quick rise to the pommel. People who like a wide twist tell me my saddle is like riding uphill on the narrow edge of a 2x4.

    And here is my response, which maybe you won't like. You would need to know the horse/owner to know whether this was a "I drank the kool-aid" level of maintenance or if is necessary to keep the...

    I hung on to my Thinline sheepskin for 4+ years. When having saddle issues that stemmed from time off this spring I tried my trainer's toklat matrix 3. Horse was happier. Never underestimate what...

    I also agree that your trainer is being really selfish, especially since it is a schooling show. I would be reconsidering my relationship with her if I were in the same situation.

    I think there is a pretty clear difference from dropped off once a week lesson Susie and what you were doing at the barn before your trainer started letting you show the sale horses.

    OP - I would...

    If I ever replace my 2H dressing room, I will likely go the route of the 2+1 with a dressing room. Pretty much anywhere I show there is a full service restroom with a shower, so I could get away...
