I have found that my Troxel(Legacy Duratec Gold) really doesn't fit too well.. my head is too oval. It's time for a new one, and I've been looking at Tipperary and IRH.
I do plan on learning dressage soon. Apparently we're having a new instructor in the barn on Sundays, and she teaches dressage.
I have tried both Tip and IRH, and both are very comfy. However, if I decide that I want to compete in dressage after riding with this new instructor for a while, would a Tip be looked down upon? I'm not talking any high level competing. I'm not a competitive person.
