    I think Donella and Clint have a point - many successful FEI trainers are NOT young horse trainers. I think that is why many in the sport here are saying there is a need for true young horse...

    Disconnect?

    This is a bit of a spin-off of a comment or two from other threads...

    I do know they make one, but I am not quite in love with their other boots so I'm not sure if that's the one I want to try. I'm also looking for a good ice pad for the back, but again haven't found...

    I'm also fairly narrow in the hips and relatively thin, so I generally prefer a narrow seat, not always a narrow twist, and a 17. I think the narrow seat is key, so that my seat bones are in the...

    Albion lover through and through. I am 5'8" with legs as long as my 5'11" father and Albions are the only saddles that I am actually comfortable in. Plus the horses love them :)

    Completely agree, horses often look lame behind due to other issues. That's why I mentioned the accupressure points, they may often point to issues in the spine/neck/SI and it may help you go from...

    Old Barn Rat - I completely agree about monitoring vitals!! I am not as "hardcore" about it as you say endurance riders and eventers are, but I do pay attention to the amount of sweat relative to the...

    How old is the horse? You might want to consider a lameness exam, sounds like there might be a simple maintenance issue. Horses also tend to look "off" when in poor balance - that is, when the...

    Generally being behind the bit is either the horse needs to be ridden forward into a light contact, stepping more under himself and coming more over the back. This is where I would work on suppleness...

    Ours is simple, horses are out 2-3 times a day. For the horses that are too wild for t/o (which we try to avoid), they are handwalked twice a day, ridden once a day for 45 min (5-6 days a week). No...

    Most shippers don't want anything on the legs because if a wrap becomes undone or a boot comes off or something, they usually cannot go in and fix it. Liability issue basically.

    Babies have issues with down transitions. I find that when they are strong enough, maybe work on them for a day. Do lots of them, eventually they get better. Most of it has to do with strength and...
