I am also looking for a western saddle. I live in an endurance mecca (not me...I only like to ride for 2 hours or so), and my vet is an FEI vet. I have happily used my Reinsman SQH for 30 years on...
Has anyone tried this saddle. Looks like a Wade but is a Tucker. Need a narrow twist and wondering if this saddle has it. Thanks.
As far as seat position with these riders, isn't this about the time Caprelli was developing the forward seat?
We call it a Derby in Florida. :)
Good Apple in Ocala.
Does anyone know of a source for a timing clock......specifically a master with several slaves and atomic? This is for Combined Driving, but I thought Eventing would not be that different. TIA
Check out eBay for comparisons, maybe.
Thank you for posting the link. I have had fun watching. Especially this morning watching the trail which is my old event. Loved that they had a division for the over 70 riders. What is the...
Do you have anything else to ride? :)
My very first nice cart was a Buckeye, but the ez rider. It was a very nice vehicle.
Sounds like a lot of work ahead of you. Have fun and enjoy the journey. :)
Watched the last 15 horses or so. Looks like a fairly wide open class at the moment. Loved seeing how many entries were using romal reins. Also loved the absence of "bling" which I personally find...
Beautiful! They look like oil on canvas painting.
Might be some competition for ACTHA.
Here are two that I found on a quick search: http://marciestewart.com/training.php
Gaited trail horses are popular in Florida and not just pasos. I know there are some gaited trainers in the Brooksville/Tampa area. I would do an internet search for them and see if they know of...
mvp, I like your comments. I think you are bringing up the major difference between the concepts of Cowboy Dressage and Western Dressage. I think Western Dressage is going to win the race, but I...
Gayla Driving Center, Georgetown, or Sterling Grayburn (not sure of the farm name but in the same area)
I never use the back strap...take it off. If you are doing cow work or riding in rough territory, then maybe use. If you do use it, then yes it needs to be connected to the front cinch and do not...
I just went thru this with a mare. I needed to know just how far she would go with the behavior (I tried most of the above and could usually get her going, but it was irritating with the constant...
I loved this movie....but I am 71 and grew up in the 50's and 60's watching nothing but westerns. Not sure the younger generation would get all of the innuendos and homage to that era. :)
Fillabeana, nice description.
Probably not big enough for that size horse. Dressage rings are 40 x 80 meters...maybe 130 x 260 feet.
If you can afford it, and it is very expensive, I would love to be in Woodside. The weather is great, the trails used to be great (I rode there from 1959 to 1985)........but bay area traffic is...
The quarter horse shows are all about points........at least they were when I was showing in them (and APHA, too).
