Do Vegan Equestrians Ride in Leather Saddles?

Do vegan equestrians ride in leather saddles?

If you are a vegan you really should not (and would not ) be wearing leather at all. As for vegetarians, it's possible that you are vegetarian only for dietary/health purposes. If you are vegetarian for ethical purposes, then yes, you are pretty much rationalizing wearing leather as an o.k. thing to do for your own purposes, but ultimately, a person who does not eat meat but wears leather is still saving more lives (human and animal) and the environment, than a person who does eat meat but does not wear leather. Eg. Amount of U.S. grain fed to farm animals: 70% Pounds of corn and soy required to produce just one pound of pork: nearly 7 Water needed to produce a pound of wheat: 14 gallons Water needed to produce a pound of meat: 441 gallons Of all water used for all purposes in the United States, more than half goes to: livestock production If you look at the big picture, not eating meat helps in a much more significant way than say, turning off the tap when you brush your teeth, not wearing leather, or donating money/food to starving people. If all of north america stopped eating meat, we could use 70% of our grain to help lessen the impact of world hunger, rather than to torture and slaughter animals; which just comes back to bite us in the *** by giving us cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes etc. Ultimately the best/most ethical thing to do is to not consume animals, their biproducts, and leather. But between the two options of "vegetarian but leather-wearer" and "non-veg but anti-leather" the former is more effective.

Myth? Abortion...saddles women with emotional trauma?

I've talked to women who've had abortions. Some of them truly do not care, but a lot of them feel sad when they think about their babies, and wonder who they would have been. Even years later, a lot of them have regrets. The statistics I've read indicate that many women struggle with depression and guilt and regret after an abortion, sometimes for years. I've also seen stats indicating that the fathers of these aborted babies also struggle with emotional issues.

do you like brown or black saddles?

I used to LOVE black saddles. I just found them a lot more attractive. lol. But my horse has a weird chestnutty/brownish saddle that looks pretty good on him (dark bay). It just sucks because I can not find a matching bridle because it's such a freakin weird color haha. So brown :)

How good are Jamis bikes and saddles...?

ive known jamis for being a good company. all bikes show chinese in some way. my specialized says handmade in china. if its a hardtail bike, i bet the frame is mass produced in china and sold to giant, trek specialized, motobecane fuji and many many other companies. i dont own a jamis but i know people who do and i hear nothing bad about them. i test rode a dakar which is a freeride dual suspension and it was a great bike. I havent heard of jamis saddles so im not sure i would buy it. $20 seeems awful cheap for a quality seat

Where can I buy gently used saddles, rains, bits, briddles,etc?

well i live in texas also and it is easy to find a saddle shop but hard to find a used saddle. Try local horse arenas and offer them a price. Or ebay will have some

What do you think... ebay jumping/eventing/all purpose saddles?

I have got my saddles from ebay that's a good choice, actually but one here in portage county ohio there's a place called something with a d tax shop. I forget the name. With my shows tack places come in a trailer and sell stuff

I was looking at saddles today...?

We use synthetics here. They are very practical, easy to maintain and hard to abuse. Plus being quite reasonable. They are better constructed that a leather saddle in the same price range. I like to ride my english horses in western tack when trail riding and I like to use western saddles when I start colts. This looks like a good one, go for it.

What Are the Advantages of LED Light Source DLP Splicing Products
As a new large screen video technology, LED light source DLP splicing products have always been one of the key industrial innovations concerned by the industry. The adoption of sub era light source LED technology is not only a simple change in light source technology, but also will fundamentally change the practical performance of DLP splicing products, and even create many new application modes. So, what unexpected new surprises will the new LED light source DLP splicing bring to industry customers?Lower system cost of ownershipThe first significant change in the application of LED light source to DLP splicing wall products is that the cost of users is significantly reduced. Although the use of LED technology will increase the first investment of DLP splicing wall project by 30%, the service life of LED light source reaches 60000 hours, which is about 20 times that of traditional mercury lamp. In other words, the customer's lifetime hit on the DLP splicing wall will save at least 20 bulb replacement costs. This cost can not only offset the increase of DLP splicing unit cost caused by LED technology, but also "save a lot of investment".Another feature of LED light source technology is that the three primary colors emit light independently. This makes the DLP projection system no longer need the previous color wheel beam splitter. As a mechanical operation product, the maintenance and replacement frequency of color wheel is also an important part of customer cost. Although color wheel components are not the core consumables of DLP splicing wall, the economy of LED light source products without color wheel can not be ignored.The long-life LED light source also greatly reduces the maintenance frequency of DLP splicing wall. The annual maintenance quantity can be reduced by at least 50%. This will also serve as an important "money saving" node and become one of the important added values for customers to purchase LED light source products. In addition, as an efficient light source product, LED will also bring higher luminous efficiency and higher light utilization, thus reflecting another part of the "low-cost" characteristics of saving electricity.Higher system reliabilityLED light source products are solid-state cold light source products. The utility model has the advantages of high working efficiency, low heat generation and less accidental damage in solid state. The traditional mercury lamp light source has the same vulnerability as an ordinary electric bulb. Its product temperature is very high in the high-light working state, and it is more likely to be damaged, burned or burst due to accidents. The solid-state emission of LED light source significantly increases the stability of the light source itself.Different from traditional mercury lamp products, LED light source is driven by low-voltage DC pulse. The power supply part does not contain high voltage and high current components, so the service life and stability of the power supply are more controllable. Combined with the natural luminescence of the three primary colors of the LED light source, there is no need for mechanical color wheel components for light splitting, which makes the LED light source more stable than the traditional mercury lamp in terms of power supply, control and light splitting.The three primary colors of LED light source work independently, which also makes the whole machine can still display the picture in the lack of color even if a "bulb" fails. This is in sharp contrast to the situation that the traditional single lamp DLP splicing unit cannot work once the bulb is burned out. It can display without color, so that once the light source appears unexpectedly, the LED light source can minimize the loss of customers to the greatest extent, or even no loss. Compared with the simple single lamp DLP splicing unit, the reliability of LED light source products is closer to the dual lamp backup system.Green environmental protection and low carbonLED light source technology is a famous green environmental protection technology. The characteristics of its semiconductor process make it easier to control toxic metals. Unlike the traditional mercury lamp, once damaged, it is likely to cause the leakage of toxic elements in the internal mercury lamp. As a semiconductor element, LED light source can also be recycled, and important metal elements can be recycled in the smelting process again.In addition, LED light source products are also light source products with high luminous efficiency.Under the same brightness conditions, it has lower energy consumption. Moreover, the LED light source emits light in digital pulse mode with independent three primary colors. The LED light source works only when the DLP light valve chip DMD needs light of a certain color. This is quite different from the continuous ignition mode of the traditional mercury lamp. LED light source does not work continuously. It only makes valuable luminescence when needed, which also makes it better meet the needs of low-carbon and environmental protection for future economic development.Bright colors make the picture more gorgeous
