    er.. that was my point.. Sedgewick bridle leather with quality British craftsmanship is far superior to Indain made especially when it costs the same if you were to compare Vespucci to Hadfields (for...

    Dressage riders I know like them, but I haven't had a chance to evaluate any jumper saddles. http://www.regalsaddles.ca/ I know you can call and talk to Kevin directly.

    Judicious use of whip and spur will give her a bit of the 'brio' you think is missing. You can add that, but you can't add the kind of inate temperment she is blessed with. Plus, with her long back...

    Updating my own post- rode in both the AP (BLEACH yuck yuck gawdawful) and a student's CC. CC was way better. May work for the OP as the tree and gullet are wide but the panels are pretty narrow.

    This is good to know! I figured there had to be a major diff, seeing as the Maddens are supposed to endorse the CC, and our jrs love them. Have you ridden in both yourself?

    Update on the Bates: OMG YUCK!!!

    Maybe it fit the beast OK, but it was terrible for me. I tried the Caprilli A/P b/c the tack shop didn't have a CC. That's OK.. I *love* A/P saddles for the most...

    Sounds like me.. although my guy is anything but slab sided.
    He is wide through the spine and shoulders, but medium across the ribs (wide spinal channel, medium sprung ribs).

    Leather CPR can't be "horrible stuff" if I"m using it! Given (again, I stress) that our climate is DRY and COLD it seems to do a great job. I use it to wipe down tack every odd once in a while, not...

    You're on to something there. "Oil" is an American trend that gets a good bit of derision from most tack makers.

    Aw. I love chickies. Our roosters were mostly jerks, but it's hard to lose even one. Although, like shakey, I'd be thrilled to see a bald eagle that close! I'd be tempted to buy more chicks..

    Which reins match Hadfields?

    (I know, right: HADFIELD.)

    Considering where I am in Canada, the reins run around $400 by mail order, AND are really hard to find in stock (plain raised), I'm thinking of going the cheap-a$$...
