    I just bought one of these to try on my gelding. I had tried one in the past on a different horse- and experienced the same gaping issues/distribution of pressure issues. But I decided to give it a...

    My standardbred has no withers and a flat back front to back and left to right. I worked with Trumbull Mtn and we successfully fit him and me into a Black Country Eloquence X (hoop tree), MW. Apart...

    the previous HM Flexee model used to not have a fixed gullet with changeable gullet bars - so yes, they could stretch over time. now, i suppose that is limited given the new design. I had a...

    I really wanted these breeches to work, too. Ohhh the lovely colors. Loved the fabric of the pant and the seat. So much love.

    Except, major fit issues.

    They just slid down. No belt would hold...

    I had (have, but it is on consignment locally) a 17.5" Danube - I was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality. I liked the seat, and the room it gave me, though it felt almost a bit too roomy -...

    I agree with Jay here. My hoop-tree-needer ended up in a Black Country Eloquence X, and as it turned out even the med-wide is a touch wide for him - he just needed the breadth at the top of the...

    the newer ones are just like the KM s-series. so are the new t4's actually.

    except for their COB models - those still have the open seat.

    Also worth mentioning: the panels on the s-series/new...

    I have totally done that too, actually I do it all the time :lol:- stopping and asking for a trainer to talk it out with me. They will use a term or an expression and while I understand the essence...

    I personally just bought a headset system because as the rider, I just can't hear my trainer all that well, even when she tries to get louder. Often times it is raining, and that gets LOUD on the...

    I agree with those who says it stretches. I bought one over a year ago for my gelding, and wasn't thrilled with the fit- esp that dang jaw strap -it seemed so short. I ended up not using it all year...
