    Yes, but if what they need to say to you in that e-mail is rude and you say e-mail is ok before 9 am….. then you're going to get the dish they are serving when you get that e-mail.

    Yes, that is what maturity looks like. But no, I don't think you should compromise on a horse.

    The best way to do this is to figure out what you need to learn, as a rider and then buy the horse...

    Yeah. That's one of the features of the trainer-turned-celebrity phenomenon that I hate. I don't know if he actually promotes that. I don't know if he would promote that (or do some of the other...

    I don't think Brannaman goes in for the "break a colt in 3 hours" show, do you?

    And colt or not, roped or not, I know I have seen grown up, educated horses standing up and looking wild like this...

    Meh….I have never had a problem with acrylic navajos on horses. I don't think it makes a difference once you decide to work your horse hard enough to make hi sweat or don't. They hold up well and...

    Yes.

    Also, wouldn't "Hammy Down" be the cutest name for the packer children's hunter?

    If you like the geometry for you and it's odd, I wouldn't sell it.

    I feel disloyal to the gelding writing this. Sigh.

    I'm for the mare, as I grew up poor and ambitious and I still want a horse who an do a job well.

    That said, I also want to like my horse as a...

    He doesn't still have his iittle balls on, does he?

    Yeah, he's bored, frustrated and on top of that, no one ever told him he couldn't attack.

    People have given you some nice ideas so far. To...

    ^^^

    Yeah, I don't see while people get riled up over these deals.

    1. They do mean to lure you into spending dough plus (lots of) interest.

    2. But if you have the money which is making more...

    In general, no. You need 1" to 1.5" larger in a dressage saddle.

    That's in part because of the way you sit in them and, in really large part, because modern dressage saddles are so deep.

    OP, you misread my post, or rather, inferred some stuff that's not there. FWIW, you did the same thing in your first post and I'll point it out because you seem to be letting it get in your way.

    To me, the tree looks too wide… even though you had wither gussets in there. The pommel looks just a tad low.

    Also, not all of the pictures show a bad fit of the panels behind. Though the clear...

    FWIW, good hunter trainers *do* mind a late change.

    But the flying change in that modern industry is pretty unusual, as a piece of training. It's supposed to be automatic, such that the rider...

    I'm not sure "standing" in the stirrups quite describes their position. But other than the Big Eq girls of saddlebred world, it looks a heck of a lot like that to me. After all, these guys a riding...

    Cats and doors.

    Yes, this topic warrants a thread.

    How do you know?

    Because more than once, you have encountered a cat having a strong opinion about something related to an inside/outside door.
