    If I'm reading the pedigree correctly, Shamwari 4 appears to be half thoroughbred at least. Can't tell on Trading Aces, but some TB definitely there (back to Nasrullah).

    Not that I've heard. She does have a new personal residence but to my knowledge the training facility is staying put. Easy enough for OP to verify.

    Just out of curiosity, how many of those dressage scores would likely be competitive at WEG, based on recent international event results?
  6. How do you keep grazing muzzles clean?

    I've been using grazing muzzles for years and put a lot of effort in to keeping them clean and dry. Just wondering if you have secret techniques that work really well. Mostly elbow grease for me.

    Has he ever been really fit before? In my experience, horses that were fit and have had a layoff tend to come back into shape more easily that those that have never really been fit before (even if...

    Sorry about your unscheduled dismount. Hope you're okay.

    "Stretch, but do it properly." I agree. I don't agree however that I should not be able to let my horse have a break from the connection and expect to smoothly resume thereafter. I want my horse...

    I can't be sure whether you are on the "coddle" side of the line or not, but it really depends on your time horizon. If you are in a hurry to get to some level or other, then you may...

    You are right to listen to your horse. Then, you can expect her to listen to you. I think the folks who are saying that you cannot give her...

    Another rider whose whole body flows with the motion of the horse. Watch how relaxed and following he appears from head to toe. He's "through" so to speak - nothing blocking the energy.

    I just watched the Sharon White video and it looked like a classic cross country ride to me. When she "touched down" into the saddle, it was a controlled and balanced movement, timed to match the...

    I know this will be an unwelcome observation, but I think the bradoon is a little too narrow. You will have more space between the bradoon ring and the curb with a slightly wider mouthpiece. Then,...
