    well, since I'm not riding after cows in the desert, or in warfare on my horse. I guess I'll just have tailor my riding to ring work and showing.

    It seems we train in a snaffle, positioning our horses, asking them to work correctly. Bending if needed.... Then we graduate to straightness. The curb askes for straightness. Straight for lead...

    I must say, I'm surprise people are so willing to stick up for this trainer from a few post of people saying owner is a nut. The wounds are horrific, they were caused at the hands of the trainer. ...

    I've just switched mine from the regular Senior to the new Healthy Edge. I think I'm going to like it. It seems it was much needed - you can feed a nice reasonable 3.25-3.75 lb minimum vs the...
