    Agree w/ snicklefritz- I have NO problem w/ people bringing their trainers to try horses, give a lesson on a sales horse, etc - all in my presence at my facility. I let someone take a horse off my...

    The poster has to be a troll. Really rotten to take a respected clinician's name and throw out unfounded accusations.

    I doubt Alfredo will be back on to respond to posters - he is not much of...

    Every horse is unique, of course, but generally with the Friesians and other baroque, round up-necked horses, they need to learn to stretch their back and neck. That does not mean rolkur - but it...

    Bort, I couldn't have said it better! It really comes down to temperament more then anything else! Warmbloods are the ultimate in athleticism, but you get a more difficult mind because of it - and...

    You can actually tell a lot about a yearling, once you've looked at a lot of yearlings. This one is a bit short in the hip - and has a pretty strong croup slope. Yes, her hind end will FILL out a...

    OMG, that looks so wonderful - it has been 104 - 106 here the past few days! I actually have ridden horses w/ sprinklers going, although it has been a few years. It actually feels good when it is...

    I find more riders are concerned about the quality of the individual horse versus the registry. Unless they are buying a broodmare. And a horse is not a 2nd level horse unless it scores in the...

    Agree w/ Gayla - there are SO MANY ads - you need something that makes people stop and take a look. A GOOD riding picture and a good video. You might list her a big higher - $7500 range. She is 10...

    I think a big part of it is budget - if you are trying to fit a "tricky" or "sensitive" horse on a smaller budget - those old saddles may not work. The old Passier, Stubbens, etc are not build for...

    I had to be a Debbie Downer, but I'm always suspicious of a clinician that doesn't allow auditors! I personally won't ride with anyone that I haven't seen teach before.

    ETA:
    After seeing the...

    We used epoxy and formed a hoof extender with it rather then an actual shoe. My farrier is pretty good w/ epoxy, and it stays on better then shoes.

    I've had it happen TWICE with two different vets. In one case, it was a very fertile mare, so I wasn't really surprised when she started looking preggers. In the 2nd case, it was a harder to breed...

    Neidersuiss is a fairly open seat and makes a 16.75 (sometimes advertised as 17) saddle, and they tend to fit a lot of horses well. Small knee rolls, and you can pick them up used for pretty cheap. ...

    I had a pretty badly windswept foal - she almost scuttled sideways when she moved! I did talk to a surgeon who was very realistic. She said she COULD do surgery, but she recommended I give her...

    "On the forehand" does not mean the judge is expecting uphill. A horse that is on the forehand is out of balance and coming off his hind end. At the lower levels (eventing or regular dressage), a...

    Not a lot of humidity, but heat, oh my... Our Summers are often over 100 degrees, ugh, double ugh! A normal day in July and August is mid-90s, and we see to get 10 to 20 days of 100 to 110...

    Totally agree with this! I have both bought and sold horses, and when I am shopping, I won't even look at an ad with no price. With young horses I am selling that are starting their training, I do...

    I kind of disagree - in general, an 8 mover is more likely to get 8s. But an 8 mover also has THREE good gaits. I have seen plenty of horses who scored 6 in the gaits score, but had a lovely 8 trot...

    Last time I was at Sheldon Feed, they had some lovely stuff - about 10% alfalfa. $20/bale - not sure if you'll find any better price this year :confused:

    I am involved with one of the registries (Friesian Heritage Horse) and our board members have been involved in Friesian cross breeding for over 10 years. We watch health issues closely (as well as...

    It depends on the degree of roach too. It is SO hard to tell w/ 2 year olds - they can be in funky growth phase that just makes them look bad. If it is a minor roach and the price was right, I...

    Just a minor correction - that show is not a championship show - it is a Competition specifically for AA riders. The Championship show is in September.

    There are a lot of people here on this board who are riding horses that are not "huge moving" and are showing on a budget. If you come to the board for advice, you get advice, and everyone here gave...

    Wow, $400 for the set! I'm envious. It is $1200 to $1500 here in California for baseline (hocks, stifles, front feet). Generally $50/view, and a small discount when you do the "whole shebang".
