    Stubben trees tend to be curved. I had a newer 32 tree Tristan (1990s vintage, blue dot) that fit my wide Arab gelding with withers until he put on a lot of muscle and his shoulders became huge. My...

    Have not had a chance to read the other replies but I bought a Custom Icon Flight probably about 9 months ago now and absolutely love it. My horse is difficult to fit and I didn't want to spend this...

    Sorry to dredge up this old post, but in case anyone is helmet shopping I received my Ovation Z-6 Elite and I love it. It's extremely light weight, well-vented, and looks very sharp, and comes with a...

    I almost won my lab's football pool by either picking the team with the mascot that would win in a fight with the other mascot, or, if that didn't yield a clear winner, picking the team with the...

    I think it looks great. I just ordered an Ovation Z-6 for showing (thanks for the advice I got here!). I had bought a One K but couldn't get over how round and bulbous it looked on me - I am really...

    They are absolutely adorable. I think they are cut for a relatively slim-hipped figure rather than a curvy figure. I would have multiple pairs but they run about a full size too large, and I'm one of...

    I have a hard time with common hair containment suggestions for the same reason that I can never use styling tips in beauty magazines - they don't work on my hair weight and texture. Not all Asian...

    I wear my hair in a casual bun all the time, but I am constantly redoing it because it sags under its own weight. Also, buns don't swirl around and rest neatly at the nape of my neck like they do...

    I am struggling with this right now. My hair is super thick, slick, and glossy (I'm Asian and have Pantene commercial hair) so I don't have to deal with frizz, but it's hard to figure out what else...

    I despise pulling manes and like the way my guy looks with his mane long. He's an Arabian and most Arab people do running or French braids, but I don't like how loose running braids are and I am...

    One more question - do they all have that cutout/ponytail port in the back? I'm not crazy about how that looks.

    Thanks so much for your help! I think I am going to try ordering the Z-6 or the Z-8 (I can't tell whether they differ other than style and/or fake/real carbon fiber accents) and see whether it works...

    Thanks! I tried on both the Deluxe Schooler and the Sync yesterday and they fit me differently - the Sync is nearly perfect, while the Schooler is wobbly. Maybe the shells are the same shape but the...

    Ovation helmet styles and shapes

    I am looking for a new helmet that I will both school and show in. My head is very round - GPA and One K fit me very well, while I can barely wedge my head into a Charles Owen. Right now I school in...

    Oh, and Tredsteps are cut very slim through the waist/hip but are sort of baggy in the legs, at least on me. Not so baggy as to be unwearable and they have some nice features.

    SmartPak Pipers run at least a size large, in my experience. It's too bad because they're adorable and the price is definitely right.

    I am 5'1" and 105# with a 24" waist and ~32" hips. Kerrits fit...

    Oh yeah, my Wahls work fine for bridle paths. I've used them on fetlocks before but not when I was trying to make my guy look nice - and it didn't look nice. :)
