  1. Mare thrives w/out noseband: Can I compete without one AND purpose/function of it??

    Sorry if dumb question but I never thought the issue would come up.

    I discovered by accident (after my noseband broke one day) that some of my mare's issues disappeared without it. She is doing...
  2. Please explain how to respond to horse pushing into bit, chewing, rooting

    A few questions:

    1. At training level, what is the proper response when a horse begins to lower/stretch their head into the bit...esp at the trot? Do you allow the reins to slip through your...
  3. YES....this is my point! I am in no way...

    YES....this is my point! I am in no way concerned about my horse being "upset" or dying from not eating when she wants. It is purely about my schedule and the fact that I sometimes can't ride...
  4. Severely falling out through inside shoulder at canter-What to do??!

    Have a 12-year-old QH mare and her and I are both beginning dressage students.

    She has come a long way, from holding her head high and very heavy on the forehand pretty much 100 percent of the...
  5. Unpredictable Feeding/Turnout Schedule at Barn--Driving me crazy! Am I too picky?

    I used to love my barn. I still love the facility, great pastures, nice arena. It is safe and my horse seems happy. But the problem is that I can't plan my rides due to erratic feed and turnout...

    I was on that search last year and found my mare on Craigslist, of all places. I don't know what your price point is but mine was only about $2000 and I never ran into a problem getting pics once...
  7. Anyone have knowledge of Danica Yates or Janice Dill as trainers..or other options??

    Am trying to get some feedback from anyone who has experience with two trainers: Janice Dill and Danica Yates.

    I live on the east side of Portland, Oregon (Oregon City/Boring area) and need to...

    Isn't this a Buck B...."horse whisperer"...approach but he uses the flag instead of a whip?

    Well...that's why I posted to find out of the required worming such as this is common practice and if anyone has experienced any negatives from doing it this way. Sounds like one person suggested it...

    I'm not sure how you came to the conclusion that I'm not testing. I've owned my horse for less than a year and so far I have been going by what my vet recommends which is a fecal sample followed by...

    Thanks for the responses. Woke up this morning with an idea. I'm now leaning towards the nicer place and then perhaps can hire someone to haul us twice a month to a good trainer. Will sacrifice...

    Yes..I have a fabulous option that would offer my horse a huge stall and private run and lots of turnout. But the drawback for me is no access to any of the trainers I am interested in working with!...
  14. Two negatives of potential boarding stable: Stall Size and Required Worming Schedule

    Gotta find a new barn because my trainer wasn't working out and so I have to move to gain access to a new trainer. But that's another story!

    Found a barn with trainer I really like but two things...
  15. Can anyone offer info about Kathy Casey, a dressage trainer in Oregon?

    She is currently in the Sherwood area near Portland. Would love to hear any feedback or knowledge from anyone. I have heard she is very good but haven't heard specifics.

    Am trying to get a video together. Look forward to some feedback once I get that up! Thanks!!

    I will try and do that. I'd love to get some feedback.

    Yes...that's so true about taping yourself! I noticed that one time. I didn't look like I was doing nearly as much as I felt I was...:)

    Helpful advice. My horse is a QH type so naturally carries her head a bit lower but not as much as most QHs I have been told. She has moments of keeping her poll up and then she drops way down. ...
  20. Confused about poll height and achieving this?

    I am fairly new to dressage and am confused about training for proper poll height. If everything is coming together (mouth is soft and on the bit...and moving in a reasonably balanced, round...

    There are lot of strong opinions on this topic. I do want to say that I am assuming the posters who were suggesting I just hand a check over for the lower board rate were being a bit sarcastic and I...
  22. Wow..thanks for the responses everyone. This is...

    Wow..thanks for the responses everyone. This is a tough call. The ad I found for my barn was on craigslist and it describes the same "full care" services I receive currently. By the way, my horse...

    Well....just found their new ad online. Looks like they are in fact offering a lower rate after all for full-care board.

    Good thought, mvp. I was also just thinking that if i was ever to approach the subject, doing it right after a bunch of new boarders move in is not the time. Waiting a few months, at least, would...

    Good advice! I think I'll feel it out first. Thanks:)
