    If you always get there in XC but not in stadium, my uneducated guess is that you aren't getting the correct, consistent canter that you need in stadium, whereas in XC it's easier to maintain a...

    ha! Oh, ponies.

    She did say that Ollie had a lovely canter for such a drafty type, so that was nice to hear :) If only we could get him to halt from that canter in proper timing. LOL.

    Guessing by your name you might be a Dr. Who fan?

    And yeah, I know plenty of horses who start to see monsters when the wind picks up....so sorry you have one of them :(

    I have struggled with this, and here is what caused it for me: getting too far ahead and pinching with my knee, causing a pendulum action. I also have a habit of tensing my leg, causing my whole leg...

    Where in Texas are you located? It's wood, not plastic, not Jeff at Rose Hill Stables makes FABULOUS jumps, including faux stone/brick. Can you see this?...
  20. can I just brag on my pony a second?

    I'm having an I-love-him moment.

    Yesterday, I rode him during the 35-mph wind gusts, and he trodded along in his flatwork like nothing was happening. Even though sand was getting in both our eyes,...

    Aw, but the beauty of being a newbie hunter-turned-eventer for me is that I have the built-in excuse to be a rather mediocre rider! :lol: "Well I can't be good at all three! IT'S HARD....YOU TRY...
