    It is much firmer--walk around on it for a few hours and you'll feel the difference. In most places, you can even hear the difference while the horses go around. I'm not a footing expert by any...

    I had a similar experience to Rugbygirl when I tried an Equipe on my young mare-- had been having problems with canter departs and the saddle put me in the perfect spot. They are made with a memory...

    I appreciate the insight WNT; I wasn't sure how willing they would be to talk to me since the order will be through Dover. Thanks!

    I have ridden in my trainer's Olgivy a few times and always thought the saddle wiggled from side to side. I bought the same saddle, custom fit to my mare, and use it with a ThinLine. Greater shock...
  8. Need help ordering new Der Dau tall boots

    I have a most amazing fiancé who is giving me a new pair of semi custom Der Dau boots. Apparently if you go away to work at a horse show for two weeks, sad and lonely fiancé will browse the Dover...

    I don't know if you can get acces to one in CA, but I really love my Equipe. (Disclaimer: this is the second saddle I've owned and I'm not a fit expert).

    I bought it when my horse was 5, and it...

    Thanks all! So helpful!!

    I'll admit, I starting wrapping a sock around them to store for winter. And I did see the fleece covers.....but it just seemed so much more fun to knit them myself!!

    I have rubber grippy wraps that cover the bottom of my stirrups. The problem is they're rubbing my flaps a bit when stored on the racks in the tack room.

    I've started knitting last year and...

    1) I'm currently pinching to buy a custom rain sheet from The Clothes Horse to match our other show clothes.

    2) I bought a pair of Dublin boots (lust for...

    I agree with VirginiaBred--start deciding what your plans are now. You won't find many hunter breeding classes in your area, so are you willing to travel yourself or will you send baby to live with...

    This is one of those things that even if you had to borrow the money or eat PB&J's for a month, it would be worth it!!
    Go, have fun, and you won't regret it!

    I would further add.......

    Don't forget about the other 31 pairs of chromosomes. Not all genetic material is on the sex chromosome.
    And to make this all more baffling- a very small portion of...

    Welcome to Berks OP!! I moved here 7 years ago with intentions of only staying for 3.....whoops!

    I interpreted your example to basically read that person works for her BO for money and also rides two of her own horses......
