    I have been known to get off a horse in order to pet a random cat.

    There's something extra great about a one-pet-stand with a strange cat. And I have a cat, so I'm definitely "going outside the...

    Of the suggestions so far, I'd take Southern PA before the rainy PNW. It's a better climate for keeping horses.

    Flame suit zipped for this part:

    IME, unless you are in a cosmopolitan part of...

    Someone else made this suggestion as well: Go about solving this problem on the ground.

    As I see it, a horse who has learned to rear needs to "meet a consequence he doesn't like." So far, that...

    Casino is a quality film. The plot, set dressing and costuming, even the soundtrack. And it does have scary/elegant/scummy (as when his wife dies a junkie in a seedy motel hallway at the end). The...

    Oh, he realizes it.

    Purring, good fur and the extra heavy weight of a boneless, relaxed cat. Those are the super-secret weapons. Even more secret than the in-n-out claws.

    The OP told the trainer that she "vented" her frustrating on the internet (as opposed to working out their business relationship in person) because she's 21 an and mentally ill?

    Were I the pro,...

    And by the way, Members of the Great Unwashed, were y'all aware that the USEF was having some kind of meeting on the Milage Rule recently? IIRC, members got an e-mail and perhaps someone mentioned...

    Given what you posted in Round 2, OP, I'd add a couple more thoughts.

    1. When you watch "the whole shebang"-- from when the ammy/horse team leaves the barn to when they get back-- check out a few...

    Yabbut the only pretty repair will be a full replacement of the seat. And I don't think that will make financial sense for this saddle and the OP's tastes.

    OP, I think you are right to fear for those nice, kind machines being kicked in their big, cyclops eye by an unhappy horse. They can't move. They're expensive sitting ducks. Someone should do...

    I think your post came off as snarky because the advice was so obvious as to seem dismissive…. as though the OP was not right to ask for more help than she could procure for herself. But she's...

    Meh, the person is dressed for safety and I'm sure she knows this is a one-off experience. The mare near by looked cool. I'll bet that baby inherited a nice mind.

    Is this your business or are you just watching from the side lines?

    If you don't have a horse there or don't own the barn, why does something dangerous done on someone else's farm with someone...

    Your last sentence actually describes the adjunct professor's gig quite well.

    OP, those saddles have been cleaned (to a degree).

    What you are looking at is normal wear from legs, boots and stirrup leathers combined with (better and worse) leather/tanning jobs that make that...

    If you have enough material, then yes, it can be done.

    Me neither. If she knows she's buying green and has a pro, someone on their team should know enough to evaluate a horse without having to take him home. If they aren't experienced enough to do...

    OP, I don't think it's a worry thing. It's that someone sitting on the pot is engaged in a moment of Predictable Stillness, Suited for Giving Attention To Da Kat.

    I think COTH is exceptional. And that's sort of a bitter-sweet thing for me because, especially in OT World, I can find mean-spiritedness. But boy-howdie it pales in comparison to the crap that's...

    The current one gets Adequan from horse vet. He had done that with his cats and found it effective. Mine-- a 16 pounder-- gets a CC a...
