    In her videos she doesn't look comfortable as she moves. Can't quite put my finger on it...maybe sensitive in the feet or back? Lots of tail swishing. I know she isn't well-schooled on the flat yet,...

    I have a Wilkie bit for my guy, who's favorite bit is a french link loose ring. Now that he is more confident in jumping, he was getting a little strong. The Wilkie is a little gentler than a 2 ring...

    Thanks MVM! That's all the endorsement I needed to order a pair. FYI: Riding Warehouse carries them for $64 + Free shipping and free returns in case you needed any enabling!

    Do the StickySeats give you enough, um...coverage? I have the Kerrits Microcord breeches and love them. I had the Kerrits pull on tights, but that felt like I was wearing slightly thicker pantyhose!...

    I use a nylon, unlined show sheet for my gotta-lay-down-every-night gelding. I think it's a Big D, but not positive.

    Yes, fooler, you are correct in the way you explained it. The 2 riders went to the show secretary office after their XC mishaps to get permission to continue riding at the HT, but they were...

    Well, I'm sure all shows are different, but in the show I saw recently, 2 riders had a refusal and then a spinout on XC. Both came off unhurt, but were eliminated. Both were allowed to SJ the next...

    At the last show I spectated at, a few riders who got eliminated in dressage or xc asked show management if they could still ride the remaining phase/s for training purposes. Their scores didn't...

    I hope I didn't come across as being judgemental or "what were these people thinking?" in my first post! Unfortunately I think I saw almost every fall/elimination in XC, which made me nervous as I...

    I'm in Area 4 and this was a Rec. show. We've had a very wet spring so a couple of the riders I know have "made" jumpers, but have been limited to XC schooling at home. Easier to school anything at...

    The TSF girth gapped for me too. You're not alone, but luckily I sent mine back soon enough to get a refund, so was only out $11 on the shipping.
