    Encourage your current students to bring their friends! Offer a free lesson to anyone who refers a new student (and that new student signs up for a lesson package). Or whatever makes sense to you. ...

    Just takes time. Stay off her back altogether for a while, half seat is perfect. Gradually start to sit for a few strides here and there, then get back off of her so you end on a happy relaxed...

    Good gravy. He is being mean and nasty because you let him. And maybe because he doesn't really want to spend time with you and does not have the balls to tell you. (And maybe also because he is a...

    I use Dropbox Pro for my business backup -- it is $99 a year (if you pay up front) and SO FRICKING WORTH IT.

    You don't even have to think about it. It just happens. And it is the easiest thing...

    I did this once when I was young (before I had kids), and while it worked out just fine (horse was lovely and I adored him), it turned out that he was 2 rather than the 3 year old I was expecting. ...

    I have, and I really think this is sidebone. (Essentially I believe you are right on, but it has a name.) Not uncommon in heavy warmbloods and drafts, can be brought about by poor shoeing and...

    I'm going to side with the kid on this one.

    That's about the age I was when I got my first horse. I was a total barn rat and rode everything I could, worked off my lessons, had wonderful...

    The two people I know with physics degrees ended up in computer programming and mechanical engineering. (Neither have masters in those fields.) They are both brilliant and good at anything they put...

    Nope, $10/hour does not make it worth it. When you count driving time and gas, for a couple of hours of work and just $20, and hours of being itchy and sneezy afterwards (for those of us that are...

    Hard to tell from the photos, but it looks a bit like sidebone.

    Your vet will probably be able to tell even without an xray if that is the case.

    I was big into eventing before I had kids, and I have always held a full time job. When my kids were itty bitty (i.e., before school age), I half-leased out my horse and managed to ride a couple of...

    I don't know much about the Camrys, but my 2005 Prius is still going strong with 240,000 miles on her. We replaced the battery at around 150k, and we'll probably keep driving it until this second...

    Yes indeed. You don't win points for being in the right.

    What saddle are you using? Not sure I could invest in a different saddle that may only get a handful of rides with my kiddo, but I'm interested to hear what you found that works. We will be using a...

    Dislike.

    First of all, it appears that the stirrup bars are attached to the base tree, not the cantilevered part of the tree, so all that hype about the tree acting as a shock absorber for jumpers...
  17. Saddle pad strategy for the almost-sway-backed horse?

    I'm bringing my older schoolmaster out of retirement to teach my kiddo his tricks. He had been mostly retired for a while after being plagued by injuries, and then I had "officially" retired him a...

    "Bucking fit for no reason" usually speaks of pain, especially if he is usually a solid citizen. A clean vet evaluation 10 days ago does not necessarily mean he is pain-free, it might just be that...

    Change "defeated" to "stuck" and it will change your whole outlook. The difference between defeated and stuck is that you just haven't found the right answer yet, but it IS out there!! Trust me,...

    I second the suggestion for myfitnesspal.com -- same idea as weight watchers, but FREE. (Sure you can pay for the upgrade, but you don't have to.) You can get the app on your phone too. Easy...

    It is absolutely OK! We did this with our new club just a few years ago. We are in the Denver area and there are numerous clubs less within an hour's drive, but the founders of our club really...

    Or a foxhunt. LOL. We always either tie to a trailer or keep them in the trailer. They are perfectly happy in either place. I can count on one hand in 30 years of showing the number of times I...

    I am still extremely skeptical of that price. Who are you talking to? How can they pay their employees even minimum wage? Maybe they are not insured/licensed? Otherwise the numbers just don't...

    If your triggers are environmental, then your best bet is a desert climate. No humidity in the air means no (or very low) allergens in the air. When I moved from humid Ohio to very dry Colorado, my...
