    I agree about it being more stressful and probably more critical to be the person on the ground. For this reason I've usually tried to take that role with horses I've started. Honestly though for the...

    I keep a blog for this exact reason. Whenever I'm feeling bad I go back to the beginning and see how far we've come :-)

    I have a 13.2 hand pony that nothing fit until I finally tried a Passier Vector but even that was slightly too long so earlier this year I bit the billet :) and saved up for a custom. I got my saddle...

    In my experience they run small but to be fair my pony is between cob and pony sizes and the crown piece of the pony did fit but the noseband and browband were quite small. From what I've seen their...

    I LOVED this article and can really relate. For me it meant pony but I think it boils down to being honest with yourself and humble with those around you.

    I like reading about the day to day stuff. Maybe because that's how I can relate to the writer. My favorite blog posts are usually about which tack cleaning supplies someone really like and how they...

    I'm so glad that you like it! I've been hoping that it's not too much but I actually think it looks less flashy than a black dressage saddle on my pony since she is brown and white so it's not a...

    My pony was NOT happy with the first bit I used with her and after some poking around I found that she couldn't even begin to close her mouth because she had a low palet and the diameter was just too...

    I had this happen with my pony and I went back to groundwork. It made a huge difference for her and once I had her going forward as the first answer I started riding again. It took a couple rides but...

    My trainer has me post bigger, slower, and increase the time "at the top" of the post. It's made a HUGE difference with my pony and as long as I'm consistent with it she's moves so much better.

    I own the 18" TSF dressage girth for my 13.2 hand pony and I can vouch for how amazing it is. I would totally buy one again and can't say enough things for how it helps us with saddle fit.

    Mine is that I finally remembered where my shoulders are supposed to go. I had studied with someone who encouraged a more hunter style post and I'm finally getting my dressage position back :)

    I just want to second (or maybe more like 50th) the good brain. I FINALLY have a horse that is reasonable, brave, not spooky and not naughty and the real difference is that I get to RIDE. At the barn...

    I've had one of these girths for almost 6 months now and really like it. I have the 20" in brown, so I can't speak to the black fading, and so far my pony is going really well in it. I had tried...

    I chose my horse based on personality and rideability and not specifically on talent for upper level dressage so I shopped on my own. I did purchase my current horse (ok pony) with an eye to whether...

    I'm about 5'4" and my primary riding horse is a 13.2 hand pony. I've only ever had nice comments other than one lady that thinks people should only ride Warmbloods. I love my pony, she's like a...

    I did have an instructor who yelled and while I work well that way in the moment, and I'm used to it from the serious music lessons I had for 23 years with a harsh German Pianist, I started to find...

    I'm so excited for you! What an amazing journey :) I'm hoping that at some point in my life I can do the same sort of trip only to pick out a pony in Germany. Congratulations and I can't wait to see...
