    No. It is so funny to see barn friends showered, wearing normal clothes and makeup. It is like meeting new people!

    You try to find schooling shows that have jumps with fill so you can deal with them in a lower stress/cheaper environment. Failing that, you can make your own jumps. That said, getting the horse...

    I wear an 8 in RJ and generally a 14 in Grand Prixs. I am tall with long monkey arms and there is no way a regular length anything fits me (I have one regular RJ and it is halfway up my forearm when...

    I would agree with chestnuthunters's description, but only for the older styles of Tailored's. The Trophy's have much more give and a normal rise. I can barely, barely fit into my old 28s (like...

    I saw her picture pop up a few times on Facebook for critiques, which is why I noticed her here. She is listed on Glenhill Farm's site as one of their own for sale, and all of the OP's pictures are...

    I would not call it especially challenging, but the derby field at Fieldstone (south of Boston) has a few banks and a grob. It is grass and pretty massive, so there are some horses that just get way...

    According to my saddle fitter (independent), leather should be dyed during the tanning process. That year County couldn't find any leather they liked that was the right color, so they dyed it after...

    I am not entirely sure of the leather on my Innovation as I bought it as a resale (it was "new"/ had never been used), but it was super grippy from day one. I also tried a Stabilizer that was very...

    Trials are the exception rather than the rule. For me it is very important to see a horse in a show environment, so even when shopping out of state I've figured out a way to both ride the horse and...

    Most horses that are hot to ride are not terribly fresh in turnout (whereas my exceptionally lazy to ride horse plays non-stop outside). Most people prefer a horse that does not run much in turnout...

    I love the subtle colors but in Zone 1, I haven't seen it at all. I would certainly love navy on black for removal purposes!

    I don't miss real bathrooms terribly at Vermont - as supershorty said, there is a good "fake" bathroom set-up. The last two week long shows I attended in New England though... blech. I can't even.

    I have sold saddles on HorseClicks and English tack trader on Faceboom. Both happened within a few weeks of listing.

    Sigh. It is a lot to ask of a horse to do the big eq at their second show, much less expect them to pack around. Some time developing the horse in the 3 foot ring or even with a professional in the...

    Ariats, though they run super large. On a budget, Horze Grand Prix or the Dover side zip euro seats are also good options that fit a bit differently than the TS.

    Honestly, while Haffies are very cute, they are not fancy enough for rated H/J shows, so that eliminates part of your market there. The bigger problem I see is that your ad says she is for an...

    I have to say it, even though I hate to be "that guy." Please put a helmet on your daughter whenever she's sitting on a horse, no matter what. There is just too much that can go wrong in the blink...

    Definitely worth it. You know who's around, but feel free to PM me for suggestions. The barn I am at now does a good number of partial leases.

    Previous to buying, I also half leased horses at some of the nicer barns around. One was young - I think 6 - and although pretty easy, he was still 6 plenty of days. The other was a jumper that can...
