    That's actually a good thought. I changed jump saddles last year because the stirrup bar was completely in the wrong place and I could NOT keep my leg under me and stable. Finally figured out that my...

    I may be doing a bad job of describing what I mean. Perhaps a neutral balance is a better way to put it. The saddle I've been in has pushed me back, forcing me behind the motion. My horse is also...

    Thank you--that's so helpful! I've not saddle shopped enough to know that those things won't go together--but it makes sense now that you say it. The high head and shoulder relief are more important...

    Building my saddle

    Ok, not really building one . . . but I have some idea of what I'm looking for, and I'd love recommendations of saddles that might check at least some of the boxes:

    Of course there's one other side to the coin too. If seller calls first party to let them know second party is standing there with cash in hand and no PPE, does first party trust that? Or assume it's...

    I agree it was a shady move. I'm betting the horse would not have vetted well and the owner knew it, so when someone offered to buy without a PPE, they jumped. Maybe some consolation to your friend.

    Wow. That's a lot of negative assumptions and unnecessary nastiness. So what if she's never ridden before in her life? Maybe she always wanted to but never had the chance. A large percentage of the...

    OP, I think this phrasing is where you went wrong.

    "I wonder what I can do with her so she is no longer such a financial drain, but I can still keep ownership of her."

    My reaction, as someone...

    Don't know what size you need, but there's one at Trumbullmountain.com right now for $1800. It's a price drop from $2500, so there's a sign that it's not an easy resale. And that seller will pay...

    Understandable question and a good one to ask, but there are a crazy number of variables that will affect the answer.

    What is your concept of "pay for a single horse?" Keep a backyard horse on a...

    I'd be out. But I wouldn't have moved there in the first place outside of a desperate and temporary situation. Restrictive hours AND closed Sunday. Just no.

    You're right that a 4* rider is not a requirement, but like bornfree said, there's certainly nothing wrong with it either. I want the best instruction for me/traing for my horse that I can access and...

    Or, since you'll probably end up throwing some out due to expiration, and Bute isn't really that expensive, you could just suggest she pay it forward. I've done that when a friend needed a dose of...

    That's good to know about the "snakeskin." My Volants are the plain model and I had looked at those with envy . . . . no more.

    I voted for your nephew earlier today before I even saw your post! And I agree, Leslie Law owes that horse a giant bag of carrots. Placed him right back in the saddle. :-)

    I have a Laser Rendezvous that I bought slightly used about 5 years ago. Cleaned up, the leather looks brand new. Stitching too. Nice, well-made, quality saddle.
