    I was looking at Tredsteps, but my tack store (which stocks both) steered me back to the Ariats because they hadn't had to send any defective Ariats back to the supplier but Tredsteps were falling...

    I've had to buy a new bridle and a new flash noseband from them in the last six months, and I am still very happy with Bobby's quality. They're all I use.

    Candico, thank you so much for the heads-up—I picked up a shirt and a soft shell for what you'd normally give for a shirt alone. I'm pleased as punch. :)

    And here I was thinking you were showing us the Ultimate Duck!

    A Charles Owen sounds like your best bet, and you can get a fantastic bargain by ordering from a UK-based tack store. I got my last helmet, an AYR8 in the leather-look finish, for $225, shipping...

    I have a bunch of Dover's CoolBlast shirts with IceFil that I love, and I just bought my first Kastel, which is equally lightweight and comfortable. (My trainer calls me the human sprinkler, so that...

    Not what you're looking for, budget-wise, but:

    I have the same problem and swear by Tailored Sportsman low-rise Trophy Hunters. I'm 5'2", and they end up a perfect mid-rise on me, with no gapping...

    The one that fits you well. :D

    If you've a long-oval head, consider buying a Charles Owen direct from the UK -- many tack shops will ship to the United States. I just bought a leather-look AYR8,...

    If you or your horse is super green, or if having an indoor is the only way you're gonna get to ride over the winter, sure, but I prefer to have my horses at home -- we know a lot more about each...

    I love the idea of showing, and the getting ready -- setting up stalls, schooling in the ring, all that stuff -- but the only thing that makes actually showing bearable is Xanax. I spent many...

    I just bought a used Fleeceworks sheepskin pad that fits my very forward flap CWD great -- first one I've found, actually.

    LW, you address the burning but haven't said anything about consulting a land-use lawyer. I would wait to send that note (which is very nice but is likely to touch off still more confrontation) until...

    Thank you so much for pointing us to this! My saddle fits my horse well and is terribly comfortable, but I do have a long thigh and have had a persistent problem with chair seat. May do a little...

    What ybiaw said -- the more you do it, the easier it gets. That said, if the stage fright continues (a problem I've had), talk to your doctor about an antianxiety medication. It's made a world of...

    I own a couple of Coolibars, six Riding Sport, and one Tailored Sportsman, and the RS are my favorites. The Coolibars are pretty heavy compared with the other shirts and not very cool on their own...

    I'm hoping this will pass, because you're 24 and people grow up, but what I see is someone who's so hung up on fence height that you can't see all of the wonderful gifts you've been given -- someone...

    I have problems with waist gap, but Ovation's DX Euro seats work really well for me. The fabric's super durable and stain-resistant, too. They'll never replace Trophy Hunters for me, but they're a...

    Jingling like crazy here in Missouri. I'm in awe of the grace and humor with which you've faced this situation, hundredacres.

    I have the same problem --long thigh, short leg. Ended up in a CWD. There are lots of nice used ones out there that will be competitive pricewise.

    If you've got a cribber, be prepared for scratches in your paint. We were told by our builder to hang a rubber stall guard over the door for when the horse was in the stall with the top door open to...
