    In the jumpers, yes - usually. Sometimes even earlier than that if necessary. Once I've "locked on" to the fence in front of me I may start looking even before we're in the air.

    As long as it's conservative, you'll be fine in whatever your horse goes best in. In the hunters I show in a leather girth - usually, unless they prefer fleece or neoprene.

    "Hunters" is usually the "hunters" associated with jumpers and equitation. This is the H/J board, so that's what people assume when you mention them here.

    In the hunters, fitted pads (or 1/2 pads) are "virtually" required. The HUS people use those fitted pads with number pouches, I think.

    You're right, she's wrong.

    Your trainer is doing what she's supposed to do - train. Do the tough stuff so that your horse is better for you. If you want a horse to win the pro divisions that's one...

    Buy yourself a pair of the mid rise, side zip, tailored sportsman Trophy Hunters.

    The mid rise version of this breech is the most flattering thing I've ever worn. They'll run you a little under...

    Okay - that makes more sense. When you said the her standing wraps and cooler would be the first thing people see when she arrives at shows I thought that meant she shipped in a cooler.

    I like this. I actually like this better than the way I do it - as far as teaching people how to do it, at least. I do think it makes more sense! I may steal this.

    However, 20 years (Whoops - 24...

    I think the opposite, actually. If anything, the tall sock look probably started with the horse world. People have had socks on the outside of breeches forever - back before zippers it was the only...

    Exactly! I mean, I shoehorned a paper titled "The Art of the Equestrian Aesthetic" into a anthropology of art class, but science is a little harder to get in there I think!

    I agree. There's a lot of "real" advancements out there. (In my field alone over the past 10 years we have Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy, proton treatments, Image Guided Radiation Therapy.)

    If you're under 18 you can do anything you want - there is no "ammy" status for a junior. Juniors can get paid for anything they want and they're still juniors.
