    Hi, everyone.

    Greys, Wow, you and Bravo can lope up to a 3'9" oxer in the middle of a course. I'm not surprised based on the photos and videos you have shared, but that is impressive. It becomes...

    Check ebay. You can get a brand-new one at VTO on sale for $75.00. I also saw some new ones on ebay for less than that. It's not a high-end bridle, so you're not going to get a lot for a used one. It...

    Hi, everyone--this will be just a quick report. Sky is fine. Trainer had the farrier pull her pads, and her soles are soft and tender from all the rain we've had. He pushed his thumb against her...

    I have a lot of tack and horsie items from the 70s (and even earlier) when I rode as a youngster. The one that means the most to me is my Stubben Rex saddle, the one Mom and Dad bought for my first...

    I wear one for every ride. I even show in it, and no one has ever said anything to me about it.

    If you have a tack shop nearby, try on some different models. They do fit differently. Look online...

    Wow, I have been fascinated with this thread. I have not seen mopeds or dirt bikes at shows, but I can really see the appeal...as long as they are not too noisy. A 50cc moped looks quite affordable!...

    My guess is that when the fitter heard this, he assumed that you would need a custom saddle. It just sounds like a misunderstanding to me.

    My advice is to tell him up front that you cannot afford...

    My fitter was wonderful. I already knew which models I was interested in, so he started with those, but he actually had a whole truck full of stock Stubben models to try. He was very low-pressure,...

    I would say that may be true for an A-show, but definitely that is not necessary for most local competition. In our local circuit, simple changes aren't penalized in the crossrail division, and most...

    In the old days, people generally had one bridle and switched out the noseband or reins as needed. I still own the figure-8 I used in the 70s for cross-country and have used it on my mare...

    Faye, yes, there are two long sides; both are considered outside. There will probably be a diagram posted for each course; very likely your crossrail courses will be some variation of this:
