    I see what you mean now. I was reading it as one of those, "What you really want and need is a WB, so why are you looking at other breeds?" posts = )

    I definitely agree with you on the judging. ...

    I understand what you're saying, though I do think you're missing the intent behind these statements. As someone who has ridden a lot of "off breeds" as well as warmbloods, I can maybe explain this...

    This is an old thread, but since a few have posted again, why not?

    I have greyhounds, and greyhound people are kind of notorious for having lots of collars = ) We just use lobster clasps too...

    I grew up showing and training ASBs and I still love them. For me, they have some of THE best brains around. Most are incredibly honest and willing, if a bit on the sensitive side. They will turn...
  5. Looking for a vet to do a PPE near Dear Park, WA

    I am very interested in a horse that is in Deer Park, WA, but I am not familiar with the area or vets out there. The seller has recommended two vets that they use regularly, but, for obvious...

    I think they need to be carefully used, as they can cause neck/spine issues if the dog is constantly being jerked around on it because they haven't had the necessary basic training to understand...

    Ditto Liberty's post about catinfo.org. It's got a lot of great info and was put together by a small animal vet (who also rides) and has advanced nutrition education.

    I, personally, will never go...

    I originally hail from breed show land myself, so I like some clipping. However, I never clip eyes (my grandmother is a long time arab trainer and has probably had hundreds of horses in her hands...

    I like the app, but my phone is always on me, even when riding. I will sometimes pull it out while I'm on a horse and review an exercise I like. I've also pulled it out while giving a lesson. I...

    A couple of thoughts:

    1) I am another that never really dug Matine's freestyles. She was an amazing mare, but the ride always looked forced and somewhat mechanical. And a tail helicoptering...

    I have a tail swisher... And I HATE seeing tail swishing (though there is definitely a difference between swishing and wringing). I have a currently 3rd level appy with an AMAZING work ethic who...

    I have a Prestige that is a 17.5 and I wish it were an 18. It's fine on my more advanced horses when I ride with longer stirrups, but I'd prefer an 18 for a little more flexibility. In most brands,...

    Minneapolis Kid-Friendly Barn

    I'm looking for a barn where I could take my 7 year old niece for her first ride when I go to visit (and maybe gift future riding lessons if she likes it). It doesn't need to be strictly dressage,...

    As far as the crating goes, 8 hours for a puppy in a crate is a long time without breaks. Plus, if she really can't hold it yet for 8 hours, she may end up learning to pee in the crate, which is the...

    I have a very short backed 15' appy. He goes great in my 17" Passier GG (NON-gusseted panels) and also in a 17.5" Prestige without the gusseted panels (can't remember the model). I've seen some...

    Lots of good advice - I'll add my own personal anecdote.

    Also wanted to follow up summerhorse's muzzle comments. The track muzzles are used to gauge order of finish, as she said. They are also used because, like horses, very competitive greys can get...

    Completely agree with smm20 on starting a grey with cats. My older male cat is the alpha of our pack. He will stand his ground with any dog and is a great intro for non cat savvy dogs. So start with...

    I personally like the room idea, but I've never had trouble with movers opening doors they shouldn't. Granted, we haven't yet moved from a really large house, so that's just my experience. My cats...
