    The Albright's hardware is very nice and seems "old-time" to me (and I'm pretty old!). In fact I still have a good halter from the 60s and the hardware is very similar.

    Another BIG vote for Albright's. Their halter plates are a major cut above too! I have cob-sized horses. Some wear size 4 some wear 3. They will be very helpful on the phone so you order...

    I used minocycline for two of my ponies. Both ate the pills with their grain. No camouflage or special processing required - just counted them out and put them in their buckets. (I did sweep the...

    Many good responses with which I concur. Just to add, if I "allow" (as opposed to requesting), the horse offers forward. If he is on my aids, then I get less forward just as easily by closing the...

    Couldn't agree more. I think one of the real challenges for many people is the meaning of "evidence-based." For whatever reasons, some possibly educational, some certainly aspirational, people have...

    There's more good timothy in Pennsylvania. Check for suppliers that will deliver to your area. Mine is price-competitive with local orchard grass/mix.

    Jim's book is excellent and the accompanying DVD with voice-over by Jim is tremendously useful because it shows how the horses learn from the exercises. I highly, highly recommend it.

    If she's not endangering hounds or other horses/riders and if you can deal with the jigging, just wait her out and take every opportunity to praise her when she relaxes. It may take a season or so...

    ladyrider:

    I think you're better off not thinking of this as "ring work." As I suggested, you should not put him to work in the ring, but rather very close to the barn door (or wherever he is...

    All good suggestions. To reply to your original question, yes it can work for any horse if the rider presents it right. So for example, if it were me I would pick a day when I had lots of time then...

    Just wondering, Bluey, is a horse a "domestic animal" in TX or is it livestock?

    I still have some open fronts and some front and rear galloping boots. The horse I had "back then" (who is 31 now and still happy in retirement) is allergic to neoprene so they were way the best...

    I have "ideopathic" anaphylaxis, which means that no matter how much testing and how many episodes are analyzed, they can't figure out what causes it.

    I carry my epi-pens, benadryl and steroids...

    Email sent.

    I mentioned that it would be rather inappropriate to require hunt members NOT to wear their hunts' proper attire when showing formal. I also suggested that they respect the heritage...

    TT: Could you clarify please? Are you walking behind the horse or essentially "double longeing" standing to the inside?

    If you are behind, why can't you keep a soft feel on both reins and...

    I love meticulous turnout and grand occasions as much as anyone - more than most, but I am with your horse. He really doesn't care what you're wearing, he figures it's sport that...

    If the staff doesn't braid then the field is expected not to braid either. I usually...
