    There is no shame in lunging. It's not a shortcut. It's smart and it's training. Honestly, lunging is hard. It took me years of practice to be good at lunging and I find lunging is an interesting...

    All I do is restart Tb's and I am going to call crap on the he is not a "lunging candidate." Rule #1 is that they respect me as a handler, rider and begin to develop trust. When I have a really tough...

    I find hocks to be fairly easy to maintain so it wouldn't at all scare me away. I don't find the price to be unreasonable for a big horse who has foxhunted and done a lot of hacking. I also don't...
