    Gah, unless you're my weirdo saddle. Anyone know where I can find a cheapie for a Frank Baines 17.5 that for some reason is ENORMOUS front to back? I just wind up showing in a sheepskin half pad at...

    Dye them another color.

    My gray pony currently looks like a cheeto. I'm pretty sure it's not coming off any time soon.

    I almost fell on the floor when they paid my horse's entire $6K hospital bill for a weird abscess on his side. It was a total freak thing and the reason I have insurance is because I can't afford...

    This is just embarrassing - the speculation and too-tight judgypants here is out of control.

    Condolences to their friends and families. That is all.

    Just make sure the CO fits snugly when you first get it, because they tend to break in a little bit. I wound up going one size down and it now fits perfectly.

    That's why I like to think of horse shows as a whole, more of a party than a division. Division running late? We've got a tailgate going back at the rig, a book to read, another trip to watch.

    Or...

    I remember I had my lovely shad and a stock at a show a few years back... and I realized I hadn't, in spite of overpacking, remembered my stock pin. I dispatched ETBW to the tack trailer where she...

    It's also a bit of a catch the eye thing, as in, it just sort of looks slightly off... then they go looking for what ever else is slightly off. Does a judge really CARE that the mane is braided on...

    You can always try shining it up a bit and taking it to an antiques dealer. Maybe they'll believe it's worth more than we do? :winkgrin:

    I've always liked those old flat saddles, and the Hermes ones were definitely quality at some point. Unfortunately, those old ones, while basically warhorses, aren't exactly selling for much even...

    No.

    The one time I wore them was for a formal attire class that was a big deal to us. I scrubbed the absolute daylight out of my saddle, wore a pair of overpants until I got on, and removed them...

    All the used things! I've been showing for years in $10 show shirts picked up on consignment at the tack exchange, rarely paid more than about $50 for a beautiful show coat. I still wear the wool...

    It totally depends. Some people will keep theirs and do whatever it takes to keep them, some will try to move them on. There's no "wrong" option unless the horse isn't being taken care of. And...

    For me, it's actually kind of interesting - right around when the performance hunters rolled in and that became a viable option, I GOT a horse! (first one I've ever actually owned, as opposed to...

    Well, for a long time, the problem was height. Before the advent of the performance hunters, if you were an amateur on someone else's horse, you really didn't have a place to go show 3'3" or 3'6"...

    Why not? He's adorable. Half the times the local shows seem to be the best of who didn't screw up. Put in 8 good jumps and enjoy yourself.

    The truth is the amateur rules are never going to work fairly for everyone. The reason that they've been so darn convoluted is to try to keep out the shammies.

    I have no children in sight. When my sister was pregnant with her first set of twins, I bought a pony. And they don't even live in state.

    Pony needed an upgrade anyway.

    The weird part is that a number of them aren't so subtle about it. It's not generally the ones that randomly hack the wrong horse or something at home.

    It's stuff like sitting at the in-gate and...

    That's what I do, Rugbug. My horse isn't actually replaceable in any way shape or form, so I carry the lowest premium on him that I can knowing that if he were to pass, I'd probably buy an under-$5K...

    Maybe consider one of the old flat crosby/dabbs/whippy type kids saddles. They're not stylish, so they're cheap, but they last for years. I grew up riding in one and didn't upgrade until I was well...

    Clifton, Lorton, Fairfax Station has some small places that you might be able to find a spot in. That's probably as close as you will get. 20-25 mins is essentially a giant stretch though. I think...
