I've gone for Jodphur boots and chaps - long boots just don't fit!

Thank You! The appy I adopted, the shirt I got for my birthday, and the bridle was given to me by my aunt, she used to ride when she was younger, then her horse passed away and she gave it to me when I started showing.

I wish I'd have aunt like you do!

Dee, I've always heard that the 20% ratio is a good way to figure out how much a horse should carry. 1000 horse=200 lb rider.

When Dancer is at her full weight, she weighs about 1200 pounds. The 20% figure means she could only carry a total of 240 pounds - rider + tack. With me at nearly 300 pounds, with a generous allowance for tack, I would need an 1800 pound horse.

If you are saying that Dancer could only carry a total of 240 pounds, I need to put a complete halt to any plans of riding her.

Plain Old Dee, horses Dancer and Rain

I believe in dragons, unicorns, good men and other mythical creatures!
