    FYI -- there are some options now that are essentially the same as the LG bridle but less expensive. The Orbitless Bridle out of the UK is one and Nickers Saddlery makes another.

    I did not see the original details. For me, it would depend on how difficult it would be to replace the saddle and how hard YOU are to fit.

    I am difficult to fit, so I have kept my custom dressage...

    I had one vaginal birth and one c-section. I found the recovery from the c-section to be easier, but I have friends whose experience differed. I was riding again 4 weeks after delivery, although I...

    Yup, I have one of those, too. Make sure to find one of the older models as they are nicer.

    Good. I'm glad the Rehobeth PD pushed for the hearing and that she will be charged. There should be consequences for illegal actions.

    One of my friends bought a Kent & Masters last year that has a slightly deeper seat and is both comfortable and durable. I rode her horse a couple of times and thought it was really nice for the $$....

    A few years after I graduated from college, a guy I'd dated called and asked me to go as his date to a mutual friend's wedding.

    The wedding was in Connecticut and I was living in Pennsylvania. He...

    I own a corrector pad and I do think it can be helpful. I'm not sure that I would use it regularly in a situation where the saddle is too narrow, though. And it really won't help when the saddle is...

    Based on what I've seen there are several factors at work:



    Some horses don't care that much about saddle fit; others are very sensitive to even minor discomfort.
    Many people don't know...

    No leverage using a Baucher. There is no fulcrum, so no poll pressure. The Baucher bit is a snaffle (dressage legal) that is held very still in the mouth because of the way it attaches to the cheek...

    My husband is an engineer and he has always scoffed at the 5 year "rule" as mostly a ploy by marketers to build in planned obsolescence. I suspect that helmet interiors do degrade over time if...

    I agree with what's been posted above. Some horses take longer than others and patience is key.

    The only thing I haven't seen anyone mention is ponying her.

    I was fostering a horse last year...

    I think there's a good chance that the saddle encouraged your horse to work through her back more . . . allowing her to develop muscles that now mean the saddle doesn't fit. I'd wait to see what the...

    First, a big hug!

    My husband has struggled with depression for many years. Sometimes he's pretty much okay; other times, not so much. Many times I thought he was getting better . . . and we also...

    You would really board at a barn where the trainer could tell the owner not to let a potential buyer jump 2'3" fences?

    I wouldn't.

    You are buying the horse from the owner, not the trainer. Let her deal with the crazies!

    One time when I was looking at horses I rode a horse that had been hunting first flight at Cheshire. My own...

    I'm not saying there's no drugging in eventing, but when I evented, I never saw it at the lower levels. In fact, it had never occurred to me that someone would want to do it! Having showed hunters as...

    Do you like a flat seat or a deep seat? Do you have a long thigh or an average one? Blocks or no blocks?

    There are so many nice choices out there. If you are going to use it for dressage and you...

    I have been in a co-op for about 12 years. It is wonderful when you have the right people, like we do now. It can be terrible when you have people who don't get along, make bad decisions, or have...

    For me it depends on the day. Some days a nice long walk is just what I (or my horse) needs. It's relaxing, it's peaceful and it can put conditioning miles on without any joint stress.

    Other days,...

    Early in my career I traveled quite a bit -- 3x/month being away 2-3 days at a time. Much of it was to work on site with the same customer so even though I was away, I was in a familiar place. I had...

    Yeah, that's our routine, too. Co-op barn with four owners . . . they get fed breakfast somewhere between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., dinner between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
