    Its so great to be able to read about all the good things happening for everyone!!

    I went with a saddle for my pony from Herritage custom saddlery. The gentleman who owns it and builds the saddles does a lot for native ponies so he'd likely be used to the type of back shape you're...

    Thank you Daisyesq! I hadn't even thought of that combination! I'll have to start looking for a brown jacket along with the black ones I'm looking at. Can I show at a rated show with a brown saddle...

    Thank you so much everyone!

    kcmel - that's exactly what I'm worried about, either a white pad will be whiter or she'll be whiter and either way it will look messy. I LOVE the navy pad and navy...

    Help me outfit myself for shows

    So, I've shown dressage twice in my entire life and both times were at schooling shows. Thanks to my amazing trainer I'm going to be able to show in 2016! It will mainly be schooling shows but...

    Mine was free when I got her and, although she's certainly FEI level warm blood, she is now worth more than any horse I ever owned. I wouldn't sell her for the world. Even though I routinely have to...

    I think it depends I what they become familiar with. I usually scratch rather than pat or slap but like someone said if I feel like we just survived something big together my adrenaline turns it into...

    I'll be waiting for ideas as well. I hack out in Saturday when I can ride early but Sunday is my lesson and the other three rides are in the evening when it's too dark to ride outside. I've done trot...

    In my personal experience it can get better even if it isn't spot on initially. I have a sensitive and opinionated pony mare but when I first got my custom, which is wool flocked, my pony felt...

    I ordered my saddle in Havana with Carmel piping and LOVE IT. You can only tell from fairly close and because they are both natural leather colors it doesn't have that race car seat look that bothers...

    I agree about it being more stressful and probably more critical to be the person on the ground. For this reason I've usually tried to take that role with horses I've started. Honestly though for the...

    I have a 13.2 hand pony that nothing fit until I finally tried a Passier Vector but even that was slightly too long so earlier this year I bit the billet :) and saved up for a custom. I got my saddle...

    In my experience they run small but to be fair my pony is between cob and pony sizes and the crown piece of the pony did fit but the noseband and browband were quite small. From what I've seen their...

    I LOVED this article and can really relate. For me it meant pony but I think it boils down to being honest with yourself and humble with those around you.

    I like reading about the day to day stuff. Maybe because that's how I can relate to the writer. My favorite blog posts are usually about which tack cleaning supplies someone really like and how they...

    I'm so glad that you like it! I've been hoping that it's not too much but I actually think it looks less flashy than a black dressage saddle on my pony since she is brown and white so it's not a...

    I went with a Havana saddle with Carmel piping and I think it's beautiful! I would absolutely do it again. You can see pictures in the link below....

    My pony was NOT happy with the first bit I used with her and after some poking around I found that she couldn't even begin to close her mouth because she had a low palet and the diameter was just too...

    I had this happen with my pony and I went back to groundwork. It made a huge difference for her and once I had her going forward as the first answer I started riding again. It took a couple rides but...

    My trainer has me post bigger, slower, and increase the time "at the top" of the post. It's made a HUGE difference with my pony and as long as I'm consistent with it she's moves so much better.

    I own the 18" TSF dressage girth for my 13.2 hand pony and I can vouch for how amazing it is. I would totally buy one again and can't say enough things for how it helps us with saddle fit.
