    A SmartPak gift certificate is always right. :) Might not be the most personal, but you can do no wrong!!

    Kelly Prather, hands down. She used to be at Chocolate Horse/Petaluma, just returned from a year in England with William Fox Pit and is now setting up her own training barn. Not sure if she's settled...

  4. Isabell's Warum Nicht sustains (likely) career ending injury

    Sad news for Isabell Werth: http://www.isabell-werth.com/

    It says that her top horse Warum Nicht sustained a hip fracture in his stall (no one is clear how he could have done that) and that he is...

    Oh dude. Let's put up big signs saying "Western Tack not Welcome in this Holiest of Arenas". Also timid riders, riders who don't look perfect, riders who are seeking to "just have fun", horses with...

    I would think that this has to do with the legal situation. The German PETA association, or whatever they are called there, are going after Rath. I suppose it would take the Dutch fraction to go...

    As much as I'm against Rollkur/LDR, this one is a bit ridiculous. Funny was though that as Rath was riding by the viewers, a woman said to him "Viel zu eng!!" (Much too tight!) Guess those Germans...

    I found the easiest way to start was with guided imagery. The "Body Scan" is a really nice intro to meditation. You are listening to someone (or a recording) while you comfortably lie down to bring...

    Good question: Investing in the "good" lessons (i.e. the expensive German clinician), even if I have to make sacrifices elsewhere. Besides just some good old riding skills, the absolute main thing he...

    So riders learn to ride from their seats and not fiddle around with the hands all the time focusing on the horse's head (great idea, btw!)

    Personally I prefer white or light colored pads for showing (even on my grey). Black to me always says "I didn't bother getting everything clean enough to wear it with white." That said, there is no...

    I had an older version Custom Saddlery Victory that worked well on my shark-withered TB. The saddle has long been sold -- my old guy is retired now.

    Lol, why you say?? Nevermind that you probably can't find one anywhere near the 5k mark, but as an owner of a terribly smart, never-runs-out-of-energy, totally trustworthy, super-fun and cute-to-boot...

    Relaxation is the first requirement of the training pyramid. Just sayin'.

    (But then again, I'd probably also be highly sceptical of anyone describing him/herself as French classical.. ;))

    If at all possible, it would be important to try the horse outside of its usual environment and without his/her usual person handling the horse.

    I have tried a horse whom I just walked from one...

    Yes, they have the sheepskin roll over the withers, but not in the back. :)

    Christ fan here, too. I use the half pads directly on my mare's back and then regular pads (therefore I can still indulge in color matching exercises etc. :lol:) I wash them with Melp, have had them...

    Not exactly an expert, but I have a 6 yo Holsteiner mare. She's 16 h now and was 15.2 when I go her at age 4. She was fairly well put together even at a young age, but she is really just now maturing...

  21. Arm-length, neck-length, rein-length and giving hands

    So, I've been really focusing on riding forward into giving hands; and the little mare responds well, so far so good. But: I cannot do this with my elbows at my side. That makes the reins too long...
  22. Isn't really about "relatability"??

    I think the word elitist is really just a poor substitute (at least in the dressage context) of "we can't really relate to this activity". Hypothetically, taking care of a Western horse is just as...

    Sorry, non-native speaker here. (At least that's my excuse today.)
    So "elitist" = "expensive"?

    As a German, I really don't mind when folks from other countries find things odd. Sheesh, I've lived in the US for 14 years and I still find a bunch of things odd. (Ask me about the first time a...

    The now retired OTTB/rescue gelding: in one word, everything. Even after 5 years at the same barn, he could barely canter around the whole ring without spooking at least once. If there was nothing...
