    sounds like your problem is the loop at the bottom of the pad, not the loop near the top that you run a billet through. I have an easy fix for that one: a loop of grosgrain ribbon as an extender -...

    I like your plan of trying it and offering what you're comfortable with. For me, though I'm OCD about my tack, my bigger problem is that I'm both particular and unfashionable when it comes to...

    Now THAT's the kind of impulse shopping I enjoy! Congrats - can't wait to see how / what she does. Loved the ponying video.

    Nope. This sort of opportunity and horse is a dime a dozen once you're a known quantity - in a good way! - at a busy barn. After I graduated from college I spent a couple of years riding other...

    Re-read Hungarian Hippo's posts, then call a lawyer. Sounds like you've already moved out - lucky you can do that - but that doesn't necessarily resolve the question of your liability for Feb board.

    I've fed alfalfa to TBs for years and never noticed any adverse effects - one got pretty much free choice for a while, too. You can tell what my response is! Oh, and when my ulcer-prone guy was...

    Have heard it with reference to big pokey spurs, used more colorfully and with glee than with derision. They never actually touched the horse, and the guy wearing them was a nice soft rider. He...

    Thank you all so much for the feedback - had to come back and let you know that I bought the saddle and am so excited I can hardly sit still. I've had it on trial for almost 2 weeks (Beval was...

    Sit in all of them - you may be surprised at what you don't like as well as what you do. I adore my Stackhouse jump saddle beyond all reason - but do not like the dressage saddles. Then you can...

    Welcome back!

    I've seen too many skinny people look bulgey in the stretchy coats to want one myself (riding =/= standing) so can't speak to those but have to put in a good word for tropical weight...

    Jump judging here is a full day activity too, with travel and briefing and hanging around til the protest period is up.

    Totally agree with Fordtraktor that it can be difficult to distinguish between deceit and differences in riding / program/ etc. Sometimes deceit is in the eye of the beholder. Thing is, horses...

    I know just what you mean about weird leather - I have a Beval girth that's the same way. I'm hoping it's just some sort of coating that'll wear off...

    The leather on this saddle - it's a '99, I...
  15. Butet life span and quality, old vs new?

    Dear Butet gurus and fans,

    Any thoughts on the life span of the saddles and whether it makes a difference if they're older vs newer? You can assume OCD type care: my tack lasts forever and look...

    I hate static! Cotton and wool are a million times better than synthetics, so I use those whenever possible - coolers, quarter sheets, knits, sheets, my own sweaters. When not possible, the static...

    Why do I insist on trying D saddles in January?? Got the Butet on trial. My reaction: "where have you been all my life?!" Horse's reaction: "I'm cold!" haha. Lucky thing I have it for a week...

    Since I didn't stress about my prelim horse landing - and staying on - the wrong lead in stadium, I think you won't be surprised that I fully support you in chillaxing! Have fun!

    And FWIW,...

    I've fed Lucerne Farms' alfalfa forage off and on for many years and have yet to find a horse who thinks it isn't candy - including the couple who wouldn't touch alfalfa pellets or cubes under any...

    thanks, guys! Those HD Platinum look deeper than the old Jaguars I've seen, but maybe the operative word there is old. It reminds me that someone in my barn has one, though, so I should sit in it.

    Thanks, guys. Ft, my horses just haven't been happy in Stubbens over the years - even the new ones (hey, at least we agreed on that).

    Actually tried a TC smartride about a year ago but the...

    ah, yeah, I went through that sort of thing - hoped horse and I would like Stackhouse dressage as much as my jump saddle. Nope and then some. Oh well!

    My guy's a pretty compact TB - not huge...

    Check out Daniel Stewart's DVD - I went to his rider fitness seminar at the USEA meeting and it was so on point (and fun) that I actually bought it. That's a coup!
  25. anyone tried a Butet D saddle? (cross post)

    Hi guys,

    Sorry for the cross post. Suppose I should have started with this board instead of Dressage, but it's a D saddle question.

    Anyone tried a Butet D saddle? It's time to get a D...
