    Used tack im looking at -- OPINIONS WANTED!

    So im looking into some used tack. So here are the ads:

    Riding Boots & Pants - I would for sure be buying the boots, and maybe the breeches. Have any of you used them before? How did you like them?

    Crosby All Purpose Saddle - I would be using this saddle for everything, jumpers (I would be using my other saddle for hunters), XC, flat work, everything. Any of you used this saddle before? How does it do in the rain? Any dislikes?

    I am also looking into a Wintec pro dressage. Any of you used one before?

    I've ridden in that type of Crosby before. It has a ridiculously wide twist, so when you ride, it consistently punches (for lack of a better word) you in the crotch and hurts like h***. I'm not a fan. Although, if you could try it out and ride in it, it might ride differently for you?

    Thanks for the reply Super! Im somewhat used to wider twists as my current dressage saddle has a wide twist. Lets just say I have, "junk in the trunk," hehe ! How does it ride besides that?

    I think the saddle will bring your knees really forward, put you in more of a chair seat. I hate all-purpose saddles. I really do. I'd personally go for a close-contact or dressage saddle.

    As for the breeches, I'd probably pass. I love my breeches, don't get me wrong, but I prefer full-seat [knees and butt], and those look to be half-seat [just knees]. Plus, black ones look better. =]


    And PS. I'm in Washington too!! I noticed the second ad was in Woodinville and was like, "Wait a second..." Haha.

    Better avoid the saddle then! O.O I tend to keep my leg back too far, according to eventers, but my main focus is hunters, so my leg need to be back a bit further. Atleast that is what I have been told. ;]

    I love my knee-patch breeches, because then when I get into full seats (which I have only used once) it is SO much easier to sit. XD I tend to show, so I like to keep my light colored breeches in stock, too. But I agree, black breeches are great! I have my dark, dark blue, heavy weights for winter riding, LOVE them!

    Super cool that you like in Washington too! Wow, it will just be even easier for me to go steal Ricci from you... ;]

    PS: Let me know if anyone has any used full seats that are 32"-34" for sale! ;D

    I just think half-seats are pointless. My chaps help me grip with my calves, so I may as well be wearing yoga pants for all the good I get out of half-seats, lol.

    And now I wish I didn't tell you I lived nearby! Lol. Of course, you'll never get her in a trailer. =P

    As far as fitting the horse goes, it's balanced really well and the flocking is of good quality, but as has been said before, the stirrup bars are pretty far forward and it's pain to get your leg under you. It's not impossible though, because I did win some blues in equitation and equitation over fence while riding in that type of saddle. You just have to be diligent. All in all, I'm much happier in my County Stabilizer.

    On another note, what is this, like, the Washington Horseman's Convention or something!? I too live in Washington.
