    That is very interesting, thanks for writing it. Just 1 question. Does it matter what colour the tack is eg havana or black?

    Thanks all
    I can't edit the first post to put all the answers in

    brown tack is pref, but black is fine Same with joddy boots! Worth keep an eye on ebay though, often get 2nd hand jod boots on there in brown Keep them for shows & they will last for ever. I've had my 'show' boots for nearly 8 years!

    C&M - what breed/age is Matrix?
