    Thanks, Beowulf! I use trot poles fairly often but like the idea of the walk poles for warming up/cooling down.

    Following this... Question: how do you space the walk poles? Or could I just use the same spacing as the trot poles (a little over 4 ft. apart)?

    The bagel, bacon and egg breakfast sandwich and Quarter Pounder with fries. With a non-fat latte.

    Moving into the *marginally healthier* realm, I adore chicken shish taouk on pita with garlic...

    A doctor friend of mine, now passed away, told me that riders had a small anatomical difference in the legs somewhere (bone or joint, can't remember) that is not found in non-riders. Apparently, it...

    I am a klutz and, when I was learning to lunge, had to drop the line once when horse stepped on it and got a bit tangled, I think at a walk if I remember correctly. Gelding walked/jogged to the other...

    I'm 60 and started riding at 52. One thing I've noticed, probably from all the hoof picking out and grooming, is that I have significantly greater hand and wrist strength than my non-riding friends....

    Don't know what it is about TB mares and donkeys, minis and other unusual equines. When there was a mini-donk and mini in the barn temporarily for vet care, my TB gelding used to drag me over to...

    I, too, as an older rider, was following with interest her well thought out and heartfelt thread about stepping down.
    Such sad news. My condolences to her family and friends.

    My lazybones gelding had an adversarial relationship with xx, a great dressage judge and teacher (my coach lessoned with him on the gelding and I had clinics with him). Overhearing the words "clinic...

    I think the limiting factor here is not the horse but rather the rider. Many of us with TBs are struggling lower-level ammies, hoping to get to 2nd or 3rd if we are lucky and often working with very...

    I have come to the conclusion that my haughty chestnut mare requires that I use Mr. Whip at least once a week so that she can maintain her sense of pride. She can then tell herself and the other...

    Does your leaser not have a coach? I've gone through periods like this with both my TBs, mare and gelding. They are smart as whips. The mare in particular will quickly suss out any weakness or...

    I love Bogs--cute, warm, comfortable, the only downsides the ineffective treads, which are slippery even on mud, bad on snow and dangerous on ice. There is also the fact that they only last me two...

    Yes, makes them sound like they are unusually fertile, more so than other breeds of horses, and breed like rabbits. :lol::lol: Incorrect use of the adjective "prolific". The "track trash" and fancy...

    Sorry, I did not read for comprehension! Thanks! Thinking back, I think we may get an email with the code a day or two into the sale.

    Although I order from them often and get all sorts of emails offering various specials, I never received notice of this sale. Apparently as a Canadian, I am not considered a best customer. Care to...

    It's interesting because a friend of mine and I, who ride and lesson together, have these kind of horses at approximately the same level of training (both horses and riders): I have the TB (never...

    This year, I'm all about Back on Track after I got the mini-blanket for myself. Bought the mesh sheet and bell boots, ordered the knee brace, now I lust after the cooler, gloves, socks and mattress...

    I've had this problem on and off, although less often in the last couple of years. However, I just got it again when I put on my winter breeches for the first time this season. I think it may be the...

    If I were in the market for a horse, I'd certainly be interested, I love TBs and have two of them. You rarely see TBs trained to that level around here either at recognized shows and/or for sale,...
