    Leaning forward at the canter

    Hi all,

    For as long as I can remember, trainers have always been on me to close my hip angle less at the canter. I tend to lean a little too forward and am working on trying to fix this. Problem...

    Hi all,

    I'll chime in...GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, available in multiple drug formulations. The more GABA, the "calmer" the brain is. Sleeping pills, like Lunesta, increase GABA...

    Thanks for the responses :)

    I haven't discussed price with the owner yet, which is why I wanted to get a general sense from you folks here. From what I can gather from BigEq a 3' and under 13 year...

    Thanks! Are month to month leases common? I'm also hoping to negotiate that type of lease vs a full year commitment. I plan on leasing for a full year, but scares me a bit to be locked in for that...

    Thoughts on lease price?

    Hi all,

    I'm wondering what you think might be a good lease price for a 13-year old WB, can do 3' comfortably but her show record is mostly 2'9" and under, has changes, generally sound and safe. ...
