    Love, love, love my KASK helmet! It's hard for me to pull off some of the helmet styles, but I am happy with the way my Star Lady looks and it is also very comfortable.

    Yes, I do need to give him more leg. You can tell I'm bracing in my stirrups too much and not using my lower leg enough. I never feel like I am holding him back, it just feels like I am holding him...

    I would love, love, love, LOVE to go to a clinic. I need to get him fit enough first. I have no problems when I ride other horses. I've had other people ride this horse and he goes better for me....

    I would never be comfortable selling him. People are scared of him by watching me ride him. I'm not scared of riding him; I can handle him just fine, I just get tired of the constant feeling that he...

    I think you guys are right. I need to try working with him again. Thanks everyone! A lot. Not too happy I was a dumb kid but happy I'll be able to hack him again and not feel guilty about it

    He was not go-go when I first got him, but has been for years. I always thought it was my fault because I was a dumb kid and wanted my jumper to be fast and win. I figured I blew his brain but I've...

    Not in pain all the time. He still has a very high quality of life. I know there will be a time when he starts to have trouble getting up and then I will not wait, but that's quite a few years away,...

    I always thought that that was just how he is. He was calmer when I first got him but he had also mainly been a hunter, and I competed jumpers. I was young and backyard and thought we needed to go...

    He paces when he's very excited and knows he's not allowed to trot but is too hyped to walk. I've thought about previcox. I've heard good things from a friend.

    And yes, he moves sound, even under...

    Whelp, today he was upset about a pony being led by his stall and flipped out, rearing and kicking so hard he broke his cast. Somehow, there was no damage to his leg. The vet is baffled, and I'm just...

    The kick happened in late August and I haven't ridden him since early November, if not a bit longer. He's just been hanging out but not getting any sounder. And I would say he's around 16.1/16.2hh...

    My thought process for spending money on this horse is that he is a very nice horse. If he were sound (which I hope that he will be one day), he would easily be worth $15,000-$20,000. I paid $500....
