    Groundpoles are your friend for now. One of my favorite easy things to do is set three poles in a zig-zag, kind of like this:

    :eek:
    Rockville to Unionville is 2 hours in good (nonexistant) traffic. While there are a lot of good facilities and trainers up that way worth going up to clinic with, that is a long way to go to...

    Will the Wilkers not fit? I've got an 18" Dabbs with a ridiculously long/forward flaps, and their 18" model actually fits my saddle fine. (A pleasant surprise.) Beval also makes a "butet" pad model...

    I school in one of the ProChoice girths. I show in a leather girth.

    Really, pretty much anything goes--synthetic, fleece, leather. Whatever the horse prefers.

    It's not that the horse is going "better" for you than the trainer, it sounds like the trainer is training the horse, not trying to win with it, so that you can go in and have that winning round. ...

    Can you sew? The sidesaddle apron pattern I have (Suitability) also includes a pattern for a riding skirt. No idea on how it is, as I only needed the apron, but it was easy to make.

    Or you...

    I've been confused by it, because while I have no personal knowledge of the place, I know a few kids who ride there for IEA stuff, and it's always sounded like your average lesson barn, and the...

    There is an park-affiliated vendor for mule/horse trail rides at Bryce that we booked through the lodge. I was a little hesitant about it, but the animals all looked in good condition, were quite...

    Not entirely sure on the legality of it for "real" shows because "conservative" is probably really open to interpretation, but I wore my olive hunt coat (which is pretty dark) for a Pony Club CT and...

    I've never owned a hunt coat with any pleats, or buttons at the back. They're double vented, just like my dressage frock coat. The dressage coat has buttons at the back. I have done (schooling)...

    And it's been a thing in non-equestrian shirts for years. I've got several ancient Patagonia shirts that are two-tone, and a sporty no-name polo that I wear to ride in but wasn't a horse brand at...

    :eek:
    Are those prices right? That's a steal, even for nice off the racks!

    How does the foot sizing run? It looks like the US-size and Euro-sizes don't quite line up from what I usually think...

    I did a bit of trot on Wednesday through the snow here, when it was still pretty fluffy. Now that it's getting slushy and melty, we've been walking, since it's horribly inconsistent in depth and...

    I just bought a trifold girth for sidesaddle, which are made with no elastic. I ordered the same size as my regular (double elastic) girths. There's not that much give to the elastic that it would...

    Just following up to say that the USEF was really prompt about getting back to me on this, to explicitly state that sidesaddle is permissible, and it falls under DR 121.13, which mentions stirrup...

    I'm definitely more of a Section A type conformation, and it would have fit well, were it not too short for my tall self. I actually really liked the coat for the price, to have around as another...

    The fit on these is a bit different than the brighter colored Pipers--the rise is higher and the fabric is a bit more techy feeling than the heavier cotton of the regular Pipers. But they are very...

    Thanks, I've actually been the whip/bit/spur checker at recognized shows before, so I'm familiar with the rules there. I've got a proper dressage whip, so if I used anything at first, it would...

    This is what I learned as well, and have never heard otherwise. If you're using your leg as an aid, for something like a leg yield or shoulder-in, it might move out of this alignment, but otherwise,...

    Turnout for dressage, sidesaddle

    I'm looking at doing some dressage shows, sidesaddle, this year, probably all at Training level. GMO seemed very positive about it when asked, so we'll probably be sticking to their schooling shows,...

    My winter boots (Mtn Horse) are enormous. I ended up just buying a cheaper pair of half-chaps to wear in the winter with them so I wouldn't stretch out my good ones. I think I went a size up from...
