    Good tip!
    And god knows I could use more training. :lol::yes:
  2. Oh, and I still plan on riding him for our...

    Oh, and I still plan on riding him for our dressage rides in our single-jointed full-cheek snaffle, as he tends to not piss off for that. I'll only use this for jumping days 1-2 times per week.

    Yeah, we talked last night about me adding a second rein. I wanted the initial Come to Jesus conversation with him and then to see how well it was going to work. And work it did!

    I hope it works for you! Yeah, it's mostly jumping when Ollie's a snot. His dressage has been so so so much better lately, but he still doesn't react quickly or lightly.

    Funny that I also got to...

    My former trainer's OTTB is in his mid-20s and was an upper level horse with her (can't remember if I or A..) He will still happily take students novice and school even bigger, last I heard. And he...
  7. I have discovered the joy of the gag bit for my horse

    If any of y'all have followed my saga, Ollie has not always had proper steering, slowing or halting. A week ago he lost his mind xc schooling and I had major trouble halting, slowing or turning him,...

    Heee!

    Ollie and I have come close to having tat kind of face plant a few times, because Ollie and forehand plus stumble.

    From what I've seen since moving to the Dallas area is that on several courses here, the BN jumps are more like the N jumps on xc that I encountered in the Atlanta area. Really surprised me that...

    Aww, that's awesome! And looks like she just totally ate up that water. Very cool :)

    Ha, thanks. As for Prelim, I wasn't sure I could be clever enough to differentiate it from CCI* so I skipped it. Wah wah. I like dark and stormy, haha!

    And as for DFP, I reaaaally wanted to...
  12. YES. Love it!!

    YES.

    Love it!!

    When I concentrate too hard, I tense up.

    When I ride my best? When I'm hung over. LOL.

    Are you directing her to me cause I'm a newly converted chicken too? ;)

    I'm a few hours north in the DFW area, but happy to help if I can. I'm a giant chicken with a luggy horse, and we have a...

    I recently won my first ribbon at BN. Fourth. It was a schooling CT- a small show. That ribbon will mean more to me than anything I will ever receive at future shows, because it was such a long time...

    Sorry, but no one should be making excuses for someone who is actually physically assaulting someone, no matter the circumstances. So he was angry? OK, a verbal lashing is just as effective in...

    This is totally the case with me. We get around XC great (maybe with some time faults, as we're slow), but stadium is our bogey round. For this precise reason; less time to fix mistakes. My Ollie can...

    Let me also clarify that although they emphasize it, I often fail. :lol: Darn luggy drafty thing...

    I thought I loved my M. Toulouse I used to have. Until I sat in an Albion. I hugged it after I got off.

    I guess I've been blessed with good eventing trainers, as mine have always emphasized straightness and quality of canter while jumping.

    Hang in there. If it is rheumatoid arthritis, it might not be the end of your riding. I have lupus, so some of the rheumatoid symptoms plus lots of other stuff going on. I still go out and ride...

    I know that one particular fence at my CT this weekend gave quite a few people trouble. Fourth fence in a grass arena with a lot of trees. Went into the shade with a left turn into the jump, and you...
