    Scruffy the cat -- I actually contacted the director there, as it is only an hour from my house. This is the program I think I will pursue. They do take on adults, but it's more an individual type...
  7. Instructors/Coaches -- Developing teaching skills

    So, for the past 20 years or so, I've been developing my riding, training, and management skills at a high level. But I don't believe that just because you can do it, you can teach it. Are there...

    Thank you for the response! I did know that BHS does certify trainers, coaches and facilities in the US, but I was also thinking that it is a hole in the US equestrian community. I kind of think...

    Kadi Eykamp is in Dallas. Technically she is an event trainer, but has amazing dressage skills and is a fabulous teacher. Some of the best instruction I've had, and I've ridden with lots of BNT.

  14. Yet another saddle thread -- Thorowgood T8 with external blocks?

    Has anyone ridden in one? I have ridden in the T8 prior and I liked it, but I really like having a bigger block. I have not found a place that carries them (yet) as it is a new model to even sit in...

    InclinedtoWhisper -- this sounds like that I would like to do! If you have a young horse or a rehab horse that you are tracking changing height and weight, how often do you measure and record?

    Who keeps a training log?

    In the near future, I will begin my search for a training project. Said project will most likely be young (4-7 years old) and probably a "wash out" from another discipline. Because of all these...
