    I've found it very hard to get any bites on the pony (with experience) that I've been trying to sell. If you find you have good results at a particular site, please update the thread!

    Since this is temporary (you are waiting on your new saddle...)

    I would ride in whatever manner is best for the horses development and training.

    I have RA and it effecting my feet. I switched to wide track composites with the cheese grater pads. I can easily keep my stirrups while putting less weight on them and the wider track disperses the...

    I cannot imagine how bored and sour my horses would get if they were only ridden in rings all the time and doing only dressage/flat work.

    This is just silly. First world problems! I love a nice ribbon as much as anyone but it really has little to do with where I choose to compete. Show organizers do not owe me a super fancy ribbon,...

    So it sounds like the jumps aren't the issue, but it's the canter. I'm betting you'll come up against this issue in your dressage as well. And perhaps you'll be able to overcome it and it'll solve it...

    I ride a pinto and an appy... both unregistered. We show at Training level but school some 1st and 2nd stuff. They could probably show those levels with another rider.

    I don't ride very well in...

    The Kerrits Flex Tights are a lot more breathable than the Sit Tights. The Crossovers are also nice... but the Flex Tights are the coolest and most breathable.

    It depends what level you are competing in. I would say at BN and below if you can put in a nice, accurate, mannerly, rhythmical test and your horse isn't completely hollow it won't effect you too...

    I think whether or not you are able to intervene depends on a lot of factors - life experience, basic personality, etc.

    You might look into ordering from Bartville Harness. They will mix part together to get all the right sizes in your bridle pieces. They have a nice monocrown and you can also do custom order stuff....
