    LIES!!! You always need more saddle pads!

    I ordered two pairs of breeches on Monday, but ground shipping to Hawaii always takes forever. I just hope they get here soon, had to toss another set of breeches due holes.

    Has anyone bought a pair of white breeches from them? How see-through are they?

    I got my grand prix knee patch breeches and long sleeve show shirt last night.

    The breeches definitely run a bit big - I am a little bit between sizes and I am glad I ordered down. They are long too, but not a problem for me since I am 5'10". I was a little disappointed in the self-patches. They feel a little slippery in the saddle, but I think the material will hold up well and I love the cut with the wide waistband and euroseat. Overall not bad for $55, not sure I would have paid $110 for them.

    The show shirt is nice - I didn't like the large horze logo, but I am planning on wearing under my XC gear, so it will get covered up. It is a stretch cotton material, not a more technical fabric, but again, I like the cut and the zip collar, so for $22 I think it was a good buy!

    My items arrived in Indiana today after ordering on Tuesday.

    Here is my review:

    Venice Bridle
    http://www.horze.com/Horze-Venice-Br...=Bridles-parts

    Leather is very soft and does not need oiled to use the buckles, crank noseband is well padded but even in a cob it might be too big for my arab.

    Horze Active Check breeches
    http://www.horze.com/Horze-Active-Ch...&cgid=Breeches

    Very nice quality, I am usually a 26 or a 28 and I ordered the 26 which fit great. They list the inseam, and it is long. I'm 5' 3" and it comes all the way to my ankle bones so anyone taller would be very happy and anyone shorter would have to hem.

    Horze Chooze pad
    http://www.horze.com/Horze-Chooze-Al...gid=Saddlepads

    Color exactly as depicted, well made with a good level of padding.

    Here is my Horze product review:


    I don't own any of their products, but I did notice that MANY of them have the word HORZE plastered over them in HUGE FONT.

    I don't mind *buying* from a company with a name that sounds like "whores", but I'm not going to go out in public with it written all over my gear.

    I need a black bridle for my 14.1hh Haffie mare who should (and usually does) wear a cob size BUT I have a high quality cob size Sommer bridle that is HUGE on her. I haven't tried it yet but I'm sure it will fit my 15.2hh Appy mare who is my only horse that can wear a horse/regular size bridle "out of the box" without some weird adjustment like an oversize browband or cob caveson.

    Does your Arab mare usually wear a cob size? Horze's bridle size chart has pony size 12.2hh-14.0hh and cob size 14.2-15.2hh. Trying to figure out where that leaves me with a 14.1hh hony...

    My mare has a larger head then some arabs so the cob bridle fit her pretty well and she does always wear cob bridles although if I wanted to get the crank down tight I'd have to punch holes in it. I'm not sure I like it on her head.

    Does anyone have more than one type of the Horze breeches? I am super-tempted by them at 50% off (even the more expensive ones) because I don't show or anything to be worth $$$ breeches except maybe as an indulgence once in a while, but I don't want to just go for the cheapest and have them not wear well/ride well, either.

    So I'm wondering if the Active line is adequate, or if it's worth spending a bit more on one of the other types.

    (We will ignore how tempting some of the plaid/checked ones are just because Pretty.)

    The thing to stay away from are the pile lined brush boots. Mine fell apart after one 30 min flat ride. Horse interfered ONCE and the boot is toasted!

    I've got white knee patch grand prixs from them and they are quite thick. I still wear conservatively colored undergarments with them but I find them more covering than white TS.
    I've heard there's more to life than an FEI tent and hotel rooms, so I'm trying it.

    Hmmm... It almost looks too big for her, the cheek pieces are adjusted pretty close to the top on the cheeks. I wonder if the pony size would be too small? I might try the pony size for my Haffie, I'm tired of all my bridles fitting on the tightest holes...

    CUTE mare though! You might try a thinner bridle on her, she doesn't have a WBy head like my Haffie (who, BTW, has a nice head "especially for a Haflinger" according to the CoTH members in the Sport Horse Breeding section).

    Default Adding my reviews!

    My box arrived today! I'm so excited.

    http://www.horze.com/Horze-Venice-Br...=Bridles-parts
    I'm impressed with the quality of this bridle for under $40. Super impressed. The leather is thick and supple, not cardboardy at all. Buckles and stitching seem to be in good order, and the padding is nice.

    http://www.horze.com/Horze-Tendon-Bo...tendon%20boots
    These look nice. The full size may be too big for my shorty QH, so I may get to use the free return shipping.

    http://www.horze.com/Horze-Double-Jo...?start=5&q=bit
    Impressed with this as well. Really nice quality.

    http://www.horze.com/Apple-Straight-...start=14&q=bit
    This bit is not what I was expecting. It is harder rubber than I thought it would be. Like really hard nylon, and it's also a very pale green, not cream like in the picture. Doesn't smell like apples to me, but I haven't tasted it.

    http://www.horze.com/Horze-Edinburgh...rt=23&q=halter
    This halter looks nice, but probably won't last long. The nylon is thin and stiff, and the fleece padding is thin as well. I'll pay more and get a Weaver halter next time.

    I got a few other small items that aren't worth commenting on, spurs, a hoofpick etc. They all look fine, too. Better than you would expect for the price.
    The bridle is really the big win here. I love it!

    OK, review is lacking without tasting the bit.

    See, I like the logo. It's kind of a flashy logo. My two polo shirts are awesome quality and have the "Horze" logo in a "shield" design on the sleeve. I get many compliments on it and people always think it's a more expensive designer brand.

    If you don't like the logo on the tendon boots, it would be easy to cut off since it is at the very end of the tab.

    I have a square saddle pad that is a beautiful red color - was a little stiff right out of the package, but two washes later it is perfect. I think it will hold up better/longer then other pads since it is more heavy duty.

    Compared to Smartpak's economy line, I have been much happier with the horze products.

    With all these great reviews I might have to make a second order. Now I'm so excited to get my Venice bridle. My QH has a big head with a roman nose, so I'm hoping it will like good on him!

    I totally agree. My Happy Mouth bits don't seem to smell or taste like much of anything but they don't taste bad. On the other hand, have you smelled or tasted a rubber bit? YUCK, I wouldn't want one in my mouth and I've never had a horse that liked them either.

    On some products, the logo is just the "z", not the whole name. I didn't find it distracting at all on the pro-tec boots or bell boots. It's kind of cute and a nice detail.

    I did end up referring to my mare as Zorro all morning, but I expect that will wear off!

    Has anyone ordered Horze polos? I'm pretty small and xs often is too big. To give an idea on size Smartpak xs polos fit ok, but is a touch big. I've heard the breeches run big, but what about the shirts?

    I've decided my current cross country colors are bad luck (ok, so maybe my riding has just sucked recently, but I'm blaming the colors since every ride in my xcountry polo and saddle pad has majorly sucked recently) so I'm buying new tendon boots, saddle pad, ear bonnet, and possibly polo

    I am a medium women's normally and that's what I have from Horze. I find them to be a nice comfortable flattering fit, true to size. I could wear it untucked and it wouldn't look baggy. Not sure if that helps.

    All right, I tasted it. No discernible flavor of apples, or plastic.
