  1. Saddle Fitting Issues
    Hello! I'm wanting to buy a Corriente saddle, but they don't allow returns which is a pain. My mare can be a bit hard to fit and they recommended I find someone to borrow their Corriente and try it out. Unfortunately, I've gotten no responses from anyone on Facebook groups which is a huge...

    I have ridden english for the entirety of my riding career, with only occasional "playdays" in western. I was offered and accepted a summer job guiding trail rides and helping with backcountry pack trips... and I wanted a pair of chinks for looks and also protection. Now as a college student I...

    Hey everyone!! I am new to this and excited to connect with fellow horse maniacs! I purchased the XL Standard Guardian Mask w/95% sun shades. Upon trying a friends' mask on for fit, I found that the browband pushes out n a "V" under her forelock. After speaking to Jeanine (@ Guardian) about...

    I have had a great experience with purchasing through this company and wanted to share for those who might be in the same position as me, looking for a bridle that is a great quality, huge range, affordable price and that FITS! My horse has never been an off the rack fit and I have never had...
  6. Saddle Fitting Issues
    So after getting a new horse two weeks ago (yay!), a friend of mine offered to lend me her western saddle, since she used to have it on her old horse that had a similar build. I got a fitting, English saddle with my horse so figured I'd take her on that offer just for fun, and it also mean I'm...

    Hello, I am currently in the process of buying a new saddle for myself. I've been reading about the importance of proper saddle fit for the horse, but the issue is that I am constantly riding different horses! So I can't really have my saddle fitted to one particular back. It's the same problem...

    I'm new to this thread and have posted a couple of questions about cantering on other threads with the same topic. I have started this one however as I need some help in finding good jodhpurs! I'm in the UK and am 6ft tall.. I need a leg length of 35" or 36" and I can not seem to find any...
  9. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi there :) So I have known about Ogilvy pads for numerous years but have never considered purchasing one because I have a very sensitive horse who has had his saddle custom fit by a great saddle fitter and I didn't want to mess up the fit of the saddle by adding extra bulk. However, the...

    I'm looking to get an inexpensive monoflap for my hard-to-fit gelding. He has long, high withers and broad shoulders and finding a saddle that fits has been next to impossible. I'm in Canada, and it seems like our options are even more limited here! What does everyone think of the Ovation...
  11. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I am currently trying to find a dressage saddle and a western saddle to fit my needs. I hate high cantles and deep seats. My horse has a narrow wither and is downhill so it is hard on my back to ride in a saddle with a high cantle. I am about 5'6'' and am overweight. I am also on a budget. My...

    This is my Crosby that I have for sale right now and my horse is visibly getting healthier and bulking up more so I decided to put my Crosby on him just for kicks. It fits better than it did before. He isn't entirely fit and is nowhere near as in good shape as he will be once I start riding him...
  13. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hey, I've never found Tony Lama boots near me, so I've never been able to try them on, but I want to buy a pair. How do they fit? Are they like Ariats, or Justins?? True to size? Narrow? I have high insteps and arches, and usually wear a womans 7.5 or 8. Also, how would you compare a pair of...

    I'm cosidering buying this Wintec, and I wanted you guys' opinion on the fit. I was a little hesitant at first mainly because I'm a snob and I like the way leather looks :wink: (though I don't show or anything... just the trails for us!)... but this has GOT to be the most comfortable saddle I've...

    I just got a FQHB western saddle for my rather fat MFT ( :lol: ) It fits him well but the gullet seems to sit a tad too close to his withers.... my neighbor suggested getting a special pad for a gaited horse????? So he can really get his gait going and move out..... what do you suggest...

    Hey y'all! I just got a new Charles Owen Pro II Skull Cap in size 4. It is slightly too big. I called the place I got it from (online) and they said I can pad it. I asked about sending it back and it would cost me shipping to ship it back AND to get a new one. And it would take over 2 weeks. I...
  17. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hello there, I'm pretty new to Western riding. I was wondering if you could help me with saddle fitting. I have an OTTB, for whom I had a saddle fitted professionally, which went fine, however, I also have a young AQHA, who at the time the fitter came, she hadn't been started. Now she's been...

    I've worn a lot of cowboy boots for a long time, never had this problem before. I bought a new pair of Justin Lacers, they fit like a glove & are very comfortable. I *love* them, except...... After walking around in them for 10-20 minutes, the outside of my left ankle joint starts aching...
