    Cool update! I think when you get arthritic horses moving over their back, it builds their top line which put less stress on the joints. Horses also generally like to work. Also, it will help you...

    As far as building a top line, you have to work your horse over his back and into a good quality contact. TB take longer typically, as their phenotype is leaner. They Imagine having a marathon...

    A couple of thoughts on saddles and saddle fitting in general.

    1) I would not trust a fitter who went to a weekend course. We have one in our area. Going to the manufacturer for a weekend does...

    Well said HSS. I have had many tell me to save my $$ and then can buy a riding horse and try it. The thing is, I've always ridden what I have at the time. I can jump, as I used to event. Although I...

    I do all my own riding. I have an I1 horse and my younger mare who will show 4th/PSG later this year. I bought my 2 year old who had a tough temperment especially as a youngster, but has become a...

    I guess I should clarify. I have been thinking of doing an ET with my current mare. I saw my friends' filly and asked if she would sell her. She said yes and gave me the price. The second filly was...
  7. Buying a weanling as an FEI prospect for an AA

    I am considering buying a weanling this time around. The last horse I bought was a 2 year old that was dressage bred. She moved well, and was going to be small which was a plus for me being 5'3. She...

    I would second the notion of forward. I learned that if you are moving forward into a nice rein(not too long or too short) they find where to connect. The thoroughness has to start from the energy of...

    I have transition envy after watching that freestyle! I especially loved the extended canter to pirouettes. Go Guenter!

    Well, after much deliberation, I ordered the foam CWD. I got to ride in it again, and my mare loved it. I was told if the worst happened, I would need to send it to CA to have the panels replaced...

    Foam vs. wool

    I am trying to get some info on foam saddles, as I tried a French one yesterday. I have always had wool flocked, and have been told it is the best because you can change it. Does the foam break down...

    CWD Saddles

    I just tried one of these on a whim and was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. Has anyone else ridden in one or owns one? What would you say it would compare to? I have never ridden in a foam...

    Thin Line! I have small hands and two reins are a lot. I used to use plain reins with stops, but I was always shortening my reins because they would slide to the next stop and be too long.

    Yes, I offered my very sound 18 year old I 1 schoolmaster to her, but he was too old!
  16. Yes Emily F, I failed to mention it needed to be...

    Yes Emily F, I failed to mention it needed to be a 7 mover. Not that your TB couldn't be that, but in my neck of the woods, that is a tall order for under 15K. I just meant to highlight the fact the...

    Exvet, you and I are kindred spirits. Who could possibly say your horses are not sport horses? They clearly have not seen any of your photos! I hope I actually get to meet you one day at a show in...

    Interesting thread. I am an AA that has a full time job, husband and child. I switched to dressage on my event horse and got my bronze, silver, and half of my gold metal on him with me doing most of...

    OMG Norton, that is awful! I wouldnt blame you for never sending one off ever again!

    I would send the horse if you have the means. Like you, I was an event rider who was proficient through First level. I sent my Prelim horse to a local dressage trainer to sell as he was maxed out at...

    Since my name here is 4WdNstraight guess what I'm good at? So what my trainer has said about bend is to give a little outside rein so they can get over to the inside. This really resonates with me...

    Diamo Gold

    Does anyone knows what he seems to throw, or what type of mare does he work best with?

    Do what Sascha recommended. Make sure when you make the turn on the diagonal that you are absolutely straight. It is easy to lose the outside shoulder which can ruin your changes.
