  • Re: Oval head, round head, helmets?

    I have no idea what sort of shape my head would be. Although, when I was buying my velvet show helmet, I tried on the Charles Owen Hampton helmet, and I was told it was a "Mushroom Cap" on me, and it didn't fit correctly. But then I tried the Charles Owen Jr8 and it fits perfectly! I use it today and it is the most comfortable helmet I ever had! I recommend you go to the tack store to try on a lot of different helmets. Find the one with the best fit for you and your daughter. Like in

  • Re: Breeches

    Seems like a tricky situation. The best advice would be to try it on. If it is possible to find a day to drive out to the tack shop, I recommend it. Breeches vary in size and different brands fit differently. Is there a horse consignment store near you maybe? That would be useful too, and it would have some good prices. If you really can't drive out to the tack store, I recommend reading in the Dover Saddlery catalog, I believe they have a sizing chart in it.

    Judgement: I used to have those same gloves! Or at least something very very similar. Those ones got too small on me. :(

    Thanks! :) I did try on some SSG gloves again, but I tried on the Ariats and they just felt so good! :)

  • Re: Best Gloves for Hunters/Equitation?

    Just to keep everyone updated: I went with my parents to the tack store to show them what I wanted for my birthday. I tried on a lot of gloves but I found ones I really like. :) They are the Ariat Tek Grip glove in black. Here is a link if you want to see them. http://www.doversaddlery.com/ariat%C2%AE-tek-grip%3f-riding-gloves/p/X1-3978/ I thought they would have a really nice grip to them, and look excellent for shows and schooling. They also feel thin and breathable enough to wear in summer but

  • Re: Best Gloves for Hunters/Equitation?

    schoolhorserider: I used a cheap pair like $5 or $10 and they stretched out. I washed them and they were baggy after. I just kept them as a spare pair but I use my Heritage gloves right now. Since I used the SSG when I was starting riding (7 years ago) well obviously I got a couple new pairs since then lol! But they didn't wear out too bad because I only rode 1 time a week for an hour. But I wasn't jumping and things like that with them. But I got another pair of the same ones last year probably

  • Best Gloves for Hunters/Equitation?

    I am in need of new gloves, mine are small and I am looking for a quality pair that will last for the time they will fit me. I have always used Heritage brand. I tried the SSG brand but I wasn't too fond of them. I compete and take lessons and was trying to look into a nice pair that I could use for both, since my gloves never get real dirty, I only use them for lessons. I guess you could say I am picky about my gloves, haha it took me a while to find my pair I really liked. I heard of some good

  • Re: Need breeches

    For dressage, full seat. I agree with 48northfarm, Dover Saddlery has a huge selection of dressage breeches, and a lot of people write reviews on them online. But unless the breeches you are looking at don't look like/feel like they will last, go for a nicer pair. Sometimes the expensive breeches aren't always necessary. When I was wearing garters while competing I really wanted these expensive jodphurs but I ended up not even liking the material of them, and they didn't fit correctly

  • Re: Spooky Gelding

    Horses spook because something is scaring them, they don't do it for the fun of it. Don't stop riding him because you get nervous when he spooks. Horses need proper exercise and keeping him away from those frightening things will only make it worse. Try looking for a trainer that will work and train both you and the horse. They will teach you how to communicate with your horse better. Horses ears tell a lot about them, don't stare at them but be attentive to them. Little things like that
