    This always irked me. Even if I won all 3 classes in the jumpers it doesn't usually cover the added total of nomination and [higher] class entry fees... Le sigh.

    I think I would rather pay less,...

    For full care (rider just has to meet at the ring) I have paid $100/day + tip (I tip 20% or more each day that I actually show) with three different trainers. Partial care (all care besides grooming,...

    All the different no-name brand saddles that were assigned to the school horses! :)

    MY first saddle was a $300 used black (yes, black!) no knee roll, flat, pretty hard, off brand.

    The Voltaire calfskin and buffalo APPEAR very similar (if you get the pre-oil treatment from the factory for $60 you won't have that initial suede looking buffalo leather...it's worth it IMO)....

    I would like to know as well! My guy actually chews LESS in a regular noseband as opposed to a figure 8 or flash so it's time to start looking at bit options...

    A few bad jumps here and there isn't the end of the world for me as a buyer. But if you really feel that the video doesn't do justice to his jumping ability and/or form then I would post pone,...

    Agreed with the poster that said not everyone can afford WEF, Tryon, or HITS. Even if I COULD afford it, I can't take that amount of time away from my day to day. You will see me out on the cross...

    I really really want a pair of the Majyk Equipe Boyd Martin Stadium boots...currently I am pretty happy with my Thinline boots though. They are easy to clean, no slippage, and legs stay cool.
