  2. Horse Talk
    Hi! I'm new to this website so forgive me if I'm on the wrong forum or messed something up. :) I've been riding for roughly two years (first year was at a terrible barn and I only rode for 15 minutes a week on a tiny fat pony so it doesn't really count) and I was wondering what size of horse...
  3. English Riding
    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...
  4. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I'm looking for a jumper saddle that can offer the support for my longer thighs. I'm 5'9 and I currently ride in a Wintec 250 AP that I got when I was ten so of course when I have my stirrups at jumping height the knee roll is just too high so I've often have to work with short stirrups which...
  5. Horse Tack and Equipment
    So I got the Dublin Monarch tall boots, and I was wondering how to break them in? I was thinking about trying the method when you wet them with hot water and than walk around? Has anyone tried this? I am really scared I'm going to ruin my boots though.
  6. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I'm looking for a jumping saddle which will fit me and the horse (good start eh?) but yeah, the horse has a short back and definately can't take anything bigger than a 17 1/2, (thts small for a 16.2 :P) but I have stupidly long upper legs. I used to ride in an 18 inch stubben parzival with...
  7. Horse Talk
    ok, this is a really stupid question,:oops: but how tall do you think my horse will get? He is a 2 yr. old QH gelding that currently stands 14.1H. Is this short for a 2 yr. old QH? I really would like to hear responses from those of you that have raised a QH and seen how they grow. Any...
  8. Horse Riding Critique
    Hi everyone :) So I am 5'10, almost 5'11, weigh 100 pounds (I am very slender, just tall), and ride a 14.1 hand almost 14.2 hand big built pony. I have been told I am too tall by some, and that I fit my pony just fine by others. I just can't stop worrying about it! I know that it is mainly about...

  10. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi there, I've been reading a lot of opinions on the Tekna which are mostly positive, and with my budget it really seems like the ideal for me. I'd prefer the CC/Jumper, but it only goes as large as 17.5" and I need a 18" though I hear that they're generous in sizing, but the all purpose seems...
  11. Horse Tack and Equipment
    So, I recently bought myself some field boots, and I regretted it because I bought them without doing any research or thinking about what I wanted in them. They promptly broke (on the 8th ride, or something like that) and now I want to actually figure out what pair of boots will work for me...
  12. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hey all, I have a question. I have been riding for almost 9 years, and in the last five year or so have aquired an interest in obtaining and using tall boots on a regular basis. My barn has decided to go a little more professional, so I have previously always worn full chaps with lace up paddock...
  13. Horse Trailers
    I might go buy one but we think the lady might be an airhead. She said the trailer is extra tall and wide for drafts and we need that! But, she said the interior is 8' tall and then we were excited but we haven't found a trailer made by trails west called the avenger. If you have one or know...
