    Ok, I'll start.
    On Eskadrons, does the velcro go on the inside of the leg or the outside? I've been putting it on the outside..Am I wrong?

    This is really silly.

    Why in a hack or flat class do you always start out tracking left? Why not right?

    Celeb - Tailored Sportsmans. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif Very expensive pants, IMO, but on some people, they look great. Height of fashion!

    TS Breeches are Tailored Sportsmans. They are the breeches that everybody on the hunter circuit wears. They are the puke green colored ones, which I'm sure you'll hear about somewhere on this board. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    TS is Tailored Sportsmen, which is a brand. And the velcro goes on the outside so that the boot is being pulled across the bone rather than the tendon, and also so that they don't hit it and loosed it.

    When spurs have one side longer than the other, which side goes against the horse?

    You are correct Hop On Pop! Always the outside; and, the way I always tell which boot is for which leg (regardless of type of boot) is that the velcro goes on the outside and the velcro "tabs" (Eskadrons have two of these) ALWAYS point TOWARDS the hind legs.

    The shorter side goes against the horse. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif

    I think the mane on the right side has something to do with war horses and swords not getting tangled in the mane. Is that right?

    Spurs, short side goes on the inside of your boot and the long side on the outside of your boot. So the short side is next to the horse.

    What is <3 ?

    I just keep seeing it as "less than 3" which doesn't seem right...

    And also, I believe that hack/flat classes start to the left because most horses prefer their left lead.

    Now, I NEVER would have figured out <3. My brain doesn't work that way. What other weird icons are out there, that I generally just gaze at, blindly, having no clue as to their meaning?
