    This is a kaimanawa pony who was at my place recently for handling after being mustered out of the wild. At this stage she was about 6 weeks off the ranges. Clearly lack of exposure to horse eating...

    That mule is very well trained to voice - he's doing as he's told. He's wearing blinkers, so can't see behind himself and can't really tell where his wagon is going.

    What's happened for the pony? This is one of the most awesome things about COTH. I see people from all over the place pulling together to make things happen for a pony no one has even met. Go COTH.

    I've used heaps of different sorts and also hate the ones that blow hair into your face. Lister are the best. They have vents at the back, behind where you hold them. (Well the three different models...

    See, that's why I drive as well as event. They're both such an adrenalin buzz. I'd love to do four ponies in hand like that. I also have to say that back stepping is just as much fun as actually...

    The teeth pictures aren't really clear enough. When you take the picture from the side, we need to clearly see all the teeth, from gum line to chewing surface (no fingers in the way). We also need to...

    I'd say 11, going on 12. Galvayne's groove appears at 10, is 1/2 way down by 15. He's still got an infundibulum in all of his teeth - this goes from the centrals at 12. Teeth are still oval - they...

    No, everything that comes in is either re-homed or sent to slaughter. This year, for the first time, there were nearly enough homes for all the horses and ponies. Only the lame, unsound, extremely...

    Remember that if you are looking at true "stationbred" horses, these are / were horses bred for shepards to use working stock on stations and are generally small - 16 hh would be big. Smaller is...

    I come from the very old school which says white is for senior hunt servants and people wearing top hat and tails (and white gloves), so I wear biege / cream. I have even worn biege with tails - and...

    I haven't read everyone's replies, but: I have had success with a Mylar combination. Rope / cord across the nose, strap under the nose and a variety of rings to choose for leverage.

    Next, stop...

    A friend and I were discussing this the other day and we both agreed that a horse should be able to do up to prelim level without any special treatment - as JFC said, some liniment on legs, maybe a...

    I had completed 3 years of German at school before I went there. It took me a couple of weeks before I started to be able to think in German and then I was off. Other students (I was 15) would talk...

    Delerium after a general aneasthetic is reasonably common - especially in older people. It also happens in younger people. I am guessing this could well be identified as a psychotic break.

    This made me giggle and brought back memories of riding in Germany many, many years ago when I first heard it!! I can even picture the instructor and the tone and way he said it. I think the horses...

    I often have weird dreams / nightmares the night before an event: I find myslef riding up the centerline with nothing on under my riding jacket. Or I wake up at 10:00 am when I planned to leave home...

    Jeannette, you have my sympathy, but Yellowbritches, I gasped when I read your post. I can't think of many worse scenarios.

    I have broken ribs 2x. First time Dr took one look at me standing up...

    I'm in the Waikato, near Te Awamutu, so right in the middle for all the best horse trials.

    How long ago were you here? Not many polo ponies at WEC now - they're all at Kihikihi and Cambridge now.

    I've got one like that at the moment. In SJ I have to be VERY focussed and not look at or steer her anywhere near any fences that aren't on course. I have to be aware when she "locks on" to fences...
  21. Gearing up for 3 day horse trial champs.

    As your season is getting under way, we are preparing for our final event of the season, our national 3 day eventing championships - and I got my acceptance letter tonight.

    The dormosedan might work, and you could use it in conjunction with your "flooding" training. Don't call it a CTJ session, re-name it a "flooding" session. Google flooding as a psychological...

    If she was out with an alpha mare, what would that mare do to her if she behaved life this? That's the sort of pressure she needs. It may be that she needs a huge CTJ session, but done right, it may...

    I think my horse would have a fit. She lost it when I walked up to her in a donkey hat:

    The tests are not invalid, but relying on them as your only information about worming is not appropriate. Your vet is correct - horses do not shed worms everytime they poop. So, a negative test does...
