    My filly was getting sore in her "armpits" too. Switching from a conventional girth to a center-elastic girth helped us immensely.

    I buy good deals whether I need them or not. :) I'm just fortunate this girth works on my pony!

    I've been sitting the trot for short periods (1 min or so) on my 3.5 year old pony, at my trainer's direction. She has 60ish rides right now, and has been fine with it. I am lightly sitting the...

    Mine looks closer to the Custom Saddlery one that was mentioned above:
    http://www.mysaddle.com/MYSADD~3/SaddleAccessories.html
    Either way, I think I was lucky to get it for $40!

    That girth you found looks really similar but is actually nicer than what I have, just looking at the stitch work. And my girth's pad doesn't flare at the ends. SUPER close though! And thank you for...

    I bought one for my pony about 4 months ago, a black plain raised with brown padding. Has held up great for daily riding. The leather is nice quality and broke in well. I rarely clean it.

    That yoga mat idea worked great! My pony is much happier. :) Thanks, Jay!

    Thornhill Vienna II is pretty low and has a great open seat. The Thornhill Klasse may be lower but I've never actually seen one in person.
  9. Help me identify my dressage girth! With pics.

    I bought this girth on consignment for $40 at my local tack shop. It has a maker's mark, kind of a horsey fleur-de-lis, but no other stamps, letters, numbers, or other identifying information.

    It...

    I didn't like the TSF girth either. I actually never even put it on my horse, not only because the elastic was SO stiff/non-stretchy, but because there are two big lumps in the padding, against the...

    My local saddle shop has an Elevation. I've sat in it, and really like it for the reasons you mention--flat, narrow seat that doesn't force you into one spot. The flap is pretty forward, but I can't...

    I would echo this. In my case, I needed to tweak saddle fit. The shims in my ECP pad compressed to half their thickness--permanently--in less than a month of dressage rides on a greenie. I'm looking...

    Thank you to everyone who has PM'ed me about Eric! I failed to mention in my previous post that I believe the Humane Society has adopted him out to someone else. That's why i think he will end up...

    Update:

    The woman who ended up with Eric lied to me about his death. I don't know why she felt the need to, but that's what happened.

    He ended up at Whatcom Humane Society in Bellingham, WA as...

    I absolutely agree with the above posters.

    I have a Vienna in x-wide (36 cm) for my draft cross. It is a very generous hoop tree dressage saddle and a perfect fit on her. I tried a Danube in...

    I don't know that I have much to add, except to say that I had a similar horse, only better. 17+ hand JC thoroughbred, extensive show record, auto changes, totally sound. I had more horses than time...

    Yep, i have seen those called horizontal crossbars. As others stated, I have schooled them at home but never seen one in a show. I love them! They are great for keeping a horse straight, and they are...

    OP stated she has narrow feet so I just wanted to clarify! Don't get me wrong; I love my Justins too. :)

    I have a pair of those Justin and found that they run super wide though. Just a warning. :)

    Hoof &Woof paddock boots seem incredibly nice . . .

    I *did* read the whole thread. I still think it is cool that you trotted.

    I also laughed at him spooking at a cat tree, so I figure it balances.

    Cheaper construction, but both Thornhill and Duett have wide spine channels in all their models. I think Duetts start at 32 cm gullet width, but i could be wrong. I know for sure that Thornhills come...

    I am dealing with this too, OP. I have 3 horses that all live in separate, level, sandy pastures. The bot flies don't touch my 2 light horses and are a non-stop nuisance to my draft. She attracts the...
