    I am curious if your current barn will allow you to haul in for lessons after leaving their barn. I am sure they know you are leaving because you are unhappy, so I could see it being reasonable that...

    Nope, I do NOT like door knockers/random stopper byers. We have our stable name at the entrance to our drive, so it would be easy to google to get our phone number or email and then call/email to...

    Alpha Lipoic Acid is supposed to offer some help with IR horses. May be worth discussing with your vet.

    Your ponies are adorable!

    A few years ago a boarder had a little cart and drove her mare. We just timed the driving so that she would do it while the horses near the arena were eating. I think a combo of them being in their...

    Having a public review of judges could make it harder for judges to remain impartial. Judges may then strive to be popular rather than correct/accurate.

    So does that mean that beating a horse is negative reinforcement because the rider could stop beating at any time? No, it is PUNISHMENT, just as hauling a horse's chin to its chest and NOT releasing...

    Negative reinforcement is where you apply pressure, and the horse is rewarded by the release of pressure when it does the right thing. Riding a horse with its chin to its chest and NOT releasing is...

    I do not use someone holding a horse when I get on for the first time. I do it by myself in a quiet indoor arena. I place the horse about 15-20 meters from the out gate (facing the out gate) and use...

    Is it possible the horse owner died or is otherwise incapacitated/hospitalized?

    I can think of 6 new indoor arena facilities that were built in the last 10 years in my area (within 30 minutes of where I live). I don't think it is all doom and gloom for the horse industry, I do...

    When the horse "dives down" as you put it, the rider's hands follow. This is vastly different than the strong backwards pull seem in the photos the OP referenced. That said, it is also possible that...

    Do you have pictures?
    If not, where is your bum in relation to the saddle? I am imagining you bringing your seat too far forward, but I might be misunderstanding.

    Geez Op, I am sorry that this is happening to you. Not a good time to be stressing about having a job to go back to. I had no idea that US maternity leave laws were so different than Canadian laws.

    This topic has been on my mind.

    I have my two girls, with the youngest being 5. I plan on them being my last riding horses, so that gives me 15+ years in theory.

    However, I am not sure my body...
