A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.

How do you like it? I'm looking to buy a new eventing saddle. I've looked at the Bates Caprilli and HJ saddles, but there's not many being sold used.

My Thoroughbred raced until she was 5 and was then bought and rescooled before I bought her when she was 7, I've now had her 3 and half years and she is a joy to own. She only ran 5 fives and wasn't much good. She's good a jumping but needs further schooling as I'm not great at it and being a 45 yr old mum I probably don't have the nerve I had as a teenager. She is more than fast enough for me and my friend told me today that we muct have hit 40mph on one gallop (she has gps oon her phone), it was a run I will never forget and was buzzing with being alive at the end I also out these pics on the othe TB thread so apologies if you have already seen them

ive had it for almost 7 years and as you can see it still looks almost brand new and i used to ride about 5 horses a day when i was a trainer/manager at a barn a few years ago. I love it.. its pretty comfy compared to some saddles ive ridden in but it is a more harder seat.. when i buy another saddle ill prob get a softer saddle just bc of my neck injury that i rec'd 2 years ago would prob like a softer seat but my butt only gets sore if im trail riding for more than 2 hrs.

I like the position it puts me in and i dont feel like i have to fight to stay in a good position and my hips or anything never hurt. heres a pic that shows my position from the side this was a couple years ago


so i would recommend it but def sit/ride in one first to make sure it works for you bc im 5'1 and all leg but dont need a really forward flap

My 1995 TB mare, Reality of Love. She was raced a handful of times then retired to breeding.. She had 4-5 babies and then she was given to me at 12 as a fat broodmare. Now we event, foxhunt, and whatever else comes up :)
Sadly she lives in upstate NY being a horse while I go to college in Pennsylvania. So she enjoys most of the year off these days and then summers of fun

The first pic is from when I first got her, the next three from a local schooling event we go to almost every year. and the last 3 are from this summer.

There is something about jumping a horse over a fence, something that makes you feel good. Perhaps it is the risk, the gamble. In any event it is a thing I need.

To ride a horse, is to ride the sky
