    I LOVE my full chaps...they are custom from Journeymen in Middleburg. I went to Beval to be measured. They are 10 yrs old + and still look great. I paid $600+ back then. They are a lighter chocolate...

    I have a mid 80's model (yes, that old!) and a 2004. I love them both...the newer one does have more fragile leather in the seat, so no jeans as the seams can leave a mark...the older one never had...

    I thought she looked thinner too (not that she was heavy!) and taller overall on her horses...maybe he lengthened her stirrup too? She looked fantastic any way and she's such a lovely rider; a real...

    You have a very limited time to make a first impression...over fences, ride out the ends of the ring, using the corners well. Remember to breathe :) and be straight to the jumps. And again, remember...

    One with a bit of a higher frame would be ideal as an eq horse. Your girl looks like it should be an easy transition. I for one like one with a higher head as long as it is not in the clouds...makes...

    Right, I would do as supershorty628. I would never tie to a trailer. Ever.

    I had the honor of meeting him a few times. Such a nice person, friendly, approachable etc...I first met him when he came to try a horse at our barn. I saw him again at the farm where he rode where...

    I have an old Butet (20 + yrs) and also a 2004...I too ride several horses with different builds with no issues with either one. One horse I ride with a gel pad and the other with just a saddle pad....

    I have a group of retired horses but I still want the manes to look good. Most don't love to have their manes pulled so I cut them.

    They look really good. It just takes practice...I keep combing...

    In the EQ as Ammy says, it is a different story.

    I think a score of 40-45 is commonly used for a rail or trot, circle or other major error. At least I do...It is hard to say if the score for her round would have been 85 without seeing her trip.

    When I judge, adding a stride to me in the lower height divisions, even at an A show (pre-children, pre- adult, short stirrup, 2/2'3 low hunters etc) does not close the door on a good ribbon, as...

    I believe it was due to the 2013 finals where the Pre-Greens jumped 2 trips on the same day. Many horses to jump twice was mentioned, when splitting it over 2 days would be a better format...
