    Congrats on your first time out! Your horse is so sweet! I have to second an earlier poster-you are so.hysterically.funny. PERIOD. I was/am literally in tears reading your posts. I'm so glad I...

    Digging up an old thread...TC 30 for a horse that has only been on pasture?

    Like the OP, I am (self-professed) on the ignorant side of equine nutrition, but its something that I believe will play a huge role in my mare's health maintenance. She is 5 years old, and has been...

    Thanks Findeight! Yes, the good ones do care about their surroundings, which translates into being more careful. Hopefully, mare will live up to her breeding (and to my passion!) and enjoy doing...

    Findeight-So true, so true-she wins, I lose when I let her stop and look at it. I have to say, I committed that sin the other day. I need to keep moving. I'm lucky enough to do most of my riding...

    Findeight-So glad you chimed in here! I was hoping you would. I know I need to put that incident behind me. You're right, it was/is completely isolated. I've ridden her (and had a pro ride her)...

    @ Countrywood-I do see the spook as this "dreaded thing". You know, I compare a spook to opening one of those "pop" cans of cinnamon rolls (or choose your favorite pillsbury carb….:). You know the...

    @ Covergirl15-thanks for your "rambling" :) Very helpful! Like you, I am focusing on dressage work right now too, with many of the same goals: softness and suppleness through the body. All of...

    Yes, envisioning a pro and how they handle the spook/silliness is a good idea (which is basically ignoring it). Also, salymander, your insight is helpful too...perhaps I just need to relax in the...

    @ FineAlready: I love that: "Look, there's food in here". :) Maybe I need to have some chocolate (or wine) waiting in my "feed bucket" after a less than good ride!

    How have you learned how...

    @ TrakHack: Your horse sounds similar to mine… She has always been very curious and looky. I need to start laughing off these spooks instead of holding it against her and myself. But, the mind is...
  11. @Tua: Love your analogy "big picture rider"! ...

    @Tua: Love your analogy "big picture rider"! That really resonates with me. I suppose you're right-I need to define "good" ride. I think a good ride is ending with a soft, supple horse and...
  12. Mentally "recovering" from a spook; One-horse pressure?

    After writing this post, I realized I had 2 questions and thoughts that I think are related, and wonder if anyone has had the same issues:

    How do you mentally recover from a spook to foster and...

    Are Schneider's blankets too good to be true? Their prices are pretty unbelievable, so I'm wondering...what's wrong with them? Any user experiences on how they hold up? I'm getting ready to...

    Are there any good books out there on sports psychology? I got dumped pretty good last April (trip to the ER with CT scan and bad concussion), and although I've been riding since then, something has...

    Bumping this

    Are there any options out there? I bought an older, but never been used stabilizer that is "orangey". I tried Hydrophane, and my next step is Hydrophane darkening oil. I've also heard of applying...

    Sooo, I was just about to purchase a helmet (a tipperary T2 to be exact) when I came across this thread. I won't be able to try either one on until after I order, but can anyone vouch for...

    Just call County

    They are very helpful...you can give them the serial number and they can tell you exactly what year it was made, flap, and tree width. If I'm not mistaken, the numbers correspond with the saddler...

    County Innovation...vs. Stabilizer?

    This thread is interesting, and actually very pertinent to me...I have always ridden in a flat butet (up to level 5 jumpers) and never seemed like I was insecure. However, I've been riding a...

    Used Saddle Sites?

    In my ongoing search for a used county stabilizer, I have come across a few websites that have been helpful. Wouldn't it be great to have a compiled list of sites that one could reference when...

    There is something about this girl. I love how she's a little short coupled and has a great shoulder and neck set (could make a nice jumper). She should develop a great topline. AND they'll accept...
