    [QUOTE=aktill;6890988]With respect, I disagree entirely with what being written above. Straightness isn't the complete absence of bend, it's bend to the degree appropriate for the gait and figure...

    For a pleasure or all-around type, I don't want bend. Straightness is the ultimate for a broke horse--you need that to get a good balanced stop, a clean horsemanship pivot, a correct lead change. ...

    I highly, highly recommend buying a USED saddle. Someone else has already done the hard part--breaking it in! Even the highest quality new saddles tend to be a bit stiff, and then fenders haven't...

    I'm not sure what you mean about "bend". Are you trying to keep his body arc'ed to the left or right? Or his body rounded with his rear under him?

    My goal in a finished horse is to keep him...

    Welcome to APHA :) Happy to have you!

    For two-judge shows, you can definitely show in more casual clothing. You can wear a straw hat, oxford type shirt, jeans, and boots. To give the absolutely...

    If he's over-sized, I'm pretty sure he can't get his POA papers. They do require he be measured by an inspector (easily done at most POA shows) to show that he's under 56". We've been through it...

    I have flat feet, but other brands to try: Anderson Bean (my favorite), Logans, Luchese, Harris, Justin, Laredo.

    Try looking online at Pard's, Rod's, Harris, Logan's, Drysdales, Cavenders'.

    Those Fallis' won't come close to giving you that equitation seat that you said you like. The fenders are really far forward, which means you'd probably be either back on your pockets with your legs...

    Straw hats are traditionally summer hats, and bangora (have kind of a loose weave detail) have a little better ventilation.

    It will usually take a little time, but it isn't really a difficult process. Just repetitive! And expect the horse to be really confused for a bit.

    I prefer to start with going back to the round...

    Really? Because they're cut that way to fit easily over your boots? I would think straight leg jeans wouldn't fit over your boots tops (be too snug over them, and you could see the outlines of your...

    Good training is good training. One thing to note is that a western horse should work on a looser rein, so while you are pushing one forward with your seat and legs, getting them into the bridle is...

    Falling is falling. Getting hung up or landed on is another matter. I've come off riding both, but can honestly say one way wasn't worse than another. And that horn has come in handy more often...

    I had two awesome horses on opposite ends of the spectrum--Money was 14.2 with shoes on and in need of a re-set. Blackie was about 16.2

    Size doesn't matter. Speed and agility do.

    Take her home and bond with her for a few weeks. You're not likely to do anything to mess her up if you're not training on her. Then deal with training. There are a lot of really good paint...

    I'm guessing that she is spur trained, so it's normal for her to know that lifting your rein hand means to tuck her head. Her whoa and slow down is a lower leg squeeze. Try using your spurs gently...
