  6. pegasus boots

    I've been using CLassic equine since 1007. Bell boots, polos, sport boots, saddle pad... everything! At open world this year i went to the pegasus booth and was impressed with them during the demonstration but was in a hurry and didnt buy them. After reading this im glad i didnt! With the price of everything and the economy the last thing i need is boots that wont last. Ive had the same pair of pink classic equine sport boots that ive had since '07 and they STILL WORK! the only reason i bought more was because i wanted different colors (; anywho.. ive never tried pegasus but im completely satisfied with classic equine legacy. My mares are happy too (: P.S. Ive put them in the washing machine multiple times and the velcro is still holding! im impressed I LOVE CLASSIC EQUINE!

    I ride in a circle y ostrich saddle. I love it, but if you dont have a good seat it isnt the one for you. the ostrich can be very slippery going around the barrel and im constantly in an english saddle working on my balance. I would reccomend a Martha Josey Barrel saddle. They're made by circle y and make you feel very comfortable. They dont have a noticably high back, but you can sit deep in the seat. The horn is long and feels good during your runs. I have found that Circle Y saddles last and fit just about any horse/pony. I will say, theyre not cheap. but theyre well worth it. I wouldnt trade my circle y for anything! I wouldnt reccomend a pro-rider to ANYBODY. I have one of those as well and i am NOT satisfied.
  9. Which Hackamore

    I had an Arab mare one who was hard to stop, i tried every bit on her and ending up riding her in a hack. I went to a Charmayne James clinic and she put her signature "charlie" bit on my mare. It worked! it isnt a very harsh bit, bit it worked to turn and stop her. I would definately reccomend trying that.
