    I don't know if you'll find anything new in it, but I really liked Pippa Funnell's Training the Young Horse. There's also a great bibliography in the back of Steinkraus' Reflections on Riding and...

    My horse has similar conformation and I was lucky enough to find a used Prestige for 1K that fit both of us from when he was about 4 - almost 6. Kept it working with shims as he developed and then...

    Maybe I'm stating the obvious for you here, but it was a surprise to me when I moved to a dressage barn (after a life of H/J) that they put the half pads directly on the back with the full pad over...

    Agree - I can't understand the 'why' of this design. In addition to worrying about getting stuck, I'd also be concerned abut the strap popping off when I didn't want it to. Weird.

    Fun thread! I'd have to agree that I don't like the look of those boots. Certainly not practical and seems to have an unflattering effect with the black breeches. Maaaaybe they look better on a horse?
