    Alright folks. I've had enough. I'm a proud owner of a lovely Arabian princess (or chesnut arab mare aka the Trifecta). I've allowed this super long mane to exist, tried to convert myself into a...

    Well, my parents are based in Vernon, but i don't necessarily need to live there. So safe to say I am open to all options at this point!

    I am currently living in the Pacific Northwest, but am considering moving back home to New Jersey. I haven't called NJ my home in 17 years - and when I did live there I rode as a kid in Warwick, NY....

    I'm with the others who say it might be down to the individual, and not always strictly down the line of "school". I know and have worked with 3 trainers, all of whom currently work with/clinic with...

    Add me to the list! As much as I'd love a talented warmblood (oooh how i covet my friend's young gelding for sale), I just don't have warmblood dollars to fund those dreams. So instead, I play with...

    I agree with what others have said. As a multiple horse owner who is trying to focus on 1 in particular, my other horse is currently on the back burner. Right now I have a gal coming out to ride him...

    YUP. I had this same experience with my standardbred gelding. With his BC Eloquence X that fits pretty near perfectly - the TSF girth lays flat with good distribution of pressure. Then onne day I...

    I'll admit I havent looked at Stubbens in a long while - but question for you all who have them. Are they generally still pretty curved vs flat? Or do they have options with a tree/panel...

    I just bought one of these to try on my gelding. I had tried one in the past on a different horse- and experienced the same gaping issues/distribution of pressure issues. But I decided to give it a...

    My standardbred has no withers and a flat back front to back and left to right. I worked with Trumbull Mtn and we successfully fit him and me into a Black Country Eloquence X (hoop tree), MW. Apart...

    the previous HM Flexee model used to not have a fixed gullet with changeable gullet bars - so yes, they could stretch over time. now, i suppose that is limited given the new design. I had a...

    I really wanted these breeches to work, too. Ohhh the lovely colors. Loved the fabric of the pant and the seat. So much love.

    Except, major fit issues.

    They just slid down. No belt would hold...

    I had (have, but it is on consignment locally) a 17.5" Danube - I was pleasantly surprised by the overall quality. I liked the seat, and the room it gave me, though it felt almost a bit too roomy -...

    I agree with Jay here. My hoop-tree-needer ended up in a Black Country Eloquence X, and as it turned out even the med-wide is a touch wide for him - he just needed the breadth at the top of the...
