    Well I can't speak for professional shows. I can only speak to our local stuff Carroll County Western Circuit.

    I feel left out! She didn't mention the neoprene people!

    They do that because there's no chute. If the ring has a chute they'll get up to speed there, but if not they'll circle. The whole idea is not to start from halt -it's too slow. They're like...

    I have turned barrels in an English saddle. It's all good. Go for precision in the plug -a nice tight turn on the barrel -and that will shave time. I like to go straight for the barrel and leg yield...

    I have dreadlocks down to my butt and I wear a Charles Owens size 8!

    I went through this and the worst was when I was having panic attacks on my horse two winters ago. I kept riding at whatever level I could and pushed a little. I took some longe lessons on a balanced...

    I love this guy. I saw him at the expo, I love how he rides, and I took a lesson with him once when he was in Lancaster, PA.

    He's back in MD now I believe.

    I got on to Facebook to find one of our roving photogs had taken pictures. Here is an excellent shot of my Big Horn Flex Tree that Fella loves and that I go well in. Thanks for helping me understand...

    Thanks, Flash!

    Someone suggested I could get the fenders moved on the Big Horn since my only tweak would be to have fenders back a bit. I will look into that.

    Thanks, NoSuchPerson

    Yes, Fella is a completely different horse in it. I don't dislike it either mind -I was just wondering whether it was worth chasing that fender hanging thing. My OCD...

    OMG Pocket Pony you've made so many assumptions about me that I don't even know where to start. I ride 5-6 days a week. I take regular lessons, and my riding is pretty freaking awesome right now,...

    I thought I'd update you all on the Big Horn 1691. Fella likes it very much, but I am fighting chair seat a bit in it. Not too much, but enough that a clinician noticed it and now I see it too. To...

    Show how dressage makes other disciplines better. For example, in Ranch Pleasure you have to show working and extended gaits. Take your dressage horse, in your dressage saddle and put him through a...

    You could just laugh at them in their faces. It worked for me. I had one NH person tell me when I was on a hack that if my horse spooked at something I should back up (needless to say this person is...

    I was similarly appalled when I discovered a blonde friend was actually a brunette. I just didn't know what to do with that.

    Many years ago I was in a remote part of rural PA and we stopped at a restaurant where I got a very hostile vibe. I ordered a soda and the can came to me opened and, sensing a disturbance in the...

    Yup. I tried CF -free at one of my schools and immediately realized it wasn't going to be sustainable for me. In hindsight -it's far to extrovert for me! I think of the things I like to do: walk in...

    Fella is more relaxed in an outdoor ring because I am more relaxed in an outdoor ring. I am quite sensitive to sound (like sounds can piss me off or make me tense or distract me in an anxiety-type...

    Please tell me more about galls and neoprene. I went that way because it is supposed to prevent galls (the Professional's Choice). Fella works 5 days a week for 30 minutes to an hour or so. And he...

    I like Professional's Choice neoprene cinches. I had an English Professional's Choice and liked it very much so I stayed with it in Western.

    Haha we should form a support group for draft crosses and morgans with short, curvy backs and linebacker shoulders! :lol:

    How about a Western endurance saddle. I tried the Tex Tan flex tree. Built on a Western tree, but not much more saddle than a deep seated dressage saddle. No horn. Very comfortable too.

    I feel your pain. I have a percheron/standardbred with a short, curvy back, and linebacker shoulders. I do not have a solution for you -I went Western and that worked like a charm.

    Good luck....

    Keysfins,

    I had GERD (I swear I got it dealing with the INS) and had to take Prilosec every day -under a doctor's orders -not 14 days on. Went on an exercise kick to treat my riding anxiety and...
