  2. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hello! I'm new. Nice to see everyone! :D I recently acquired a heavily tooled black roping saddle. The leather is real, definitely not the cheap stuff or the waterbuffalo that's being passed off as leather. It was all dusty and dirty (it was so dirty that I couldn't tell whether it was...
  3. Horse Tack and Equipment

    Ok, Ive never had this problem so Im not quite sure what to think. I have a down hill gelding. I just bought a new saddle, This is the 3rd time I rode my gelding in it and he was sweaty enough to see that the saddle left two dry spots right behind his withers. My heart sank. The thing I do...

    I've just taken up western riding and am loving it! My problem is I don't know what tree size my danish warmblood would fit into. When riding with an english saddle, he fits really well into Wintec Cair medium (blue gullet), Frank Baines medium/wide and Sommer 31½ cm. All saddles with a really...
  15. Horse Riding Critique
    This video is from a show in June. I just wanted to throw it up here to get ideas on things we can work on this winter to help improve in this class. It's a pleasure class, so it's judged on the horse - not the rider.
