    I never said that he wasn't a great rider. Nor did I ever say that all competition riders are evil. But watch any video of him riding and don't tell me that his leg is not more bouncy and active in...

    I have the ones from smart pak in brown. I wouldn't buy them again. The leather is buttery soft and easy to break in but they are wearing out very quickly. Also the sizing chart was WAY off and the...

    I'm curious why you are seeking such a high concentration of Donnerhall blood? He is an amazing stallion and has many fine qualities to offer. However, you mention you'd like a prettier head and that...
