    Arena grooming

    I currently drag my arena with a harrow attached to the back of an ATV. I don't drag it as often as I would like to as I have a full time job, a family, and too many horses...

    Canter/ walk transitions???

    Can anybody offer me some suggestions for training c/w transitions? When I try them I almost always end up with a heavy nose-diving c/t transition instead. (When I'm actually asking for a c/t...

    In response to the original post, I think it depends upon where you live. I too live in Northern CA, and there is a huge number of arabs here. It is also an active dressage area. I see quite a few...

    I've found the string test that measures the cannon bone to be more accurate than the one that rotates up at the elbow. The one that rotates is only accurate for breeds that have a fairly leg to...
