    I tell my students to "sit DOWN straight!".

    Last winter? I even have pics! I think it works different muscles on both myself and my horse. A good fitness routine.

    I make it a game with food reward. If you have an enclosed area that you can work in so much the better. Channel your inner child and "see" what you want her to do. I made a brief video a few...

    Having limited use of my arms I find the mono flap to be much lighter and easier to carry and place on the horse's back one handed. Closer contact than some not so much others. I actually have two...

    OK. I am of a certain age and prefer real leather so I like the FITS and the Equissentials. I find that so many of the synthetics create an odd "arrow at the crotch" effect that I can't explain...

    Okay, maybe I got the name wrong? THis stallion was brought to a farm, turned out with the mares and picked up later after pasture breeding. He was quite the gentleman, the rig wasn't fancy and the...

    You don't say what kind of hackamore. I have several and ride them the exact same way I ride with a bit. If it is a mechanical then you use it like a pelham with two reins.
