    Sounds like she's had almost zero work--so why not work her long and low to strengthen her back first? You can use that strength for any discipline including SS if she starts to show some promise....

    Agree that there are probably mulitple levers to "pull" in order fix your problem, but I'm all about tools too. I have a saddlebred that, by nature, wants to put his head in the air, so bringing him...

    I introduced my mini schnauzers to barn hunt last year, but just trialing with one. I think the interesting aspect as we've moved up the levels is to balance how much I "help" him vs. standing back...

    Oh, please don't get discouraged and settle for a backyard-bred animal. You may be opening up a whole can of trouble down the road in terms of health and/or behavior problems.

    I think there are more and more ASBs quietly making their way into eventing. Not all of them are easily identifyable as such--those that are a little less typey can end up looking like some kind of a...

    A breakover, properly done, is stretched. The tail is cut, put in a set, and then the tail is very gradually stretched to form a breakover. Dislocating or breaking a joint would permantly damage the...

    The words in blue/bold are the ones to which I have an objection. It perpetuates a damaging and completely false perception about saddlebred tail. NO tail is EVER fractured or dislocated when a tail...

    Thanks for your thoughts--and great recommendation about fitting into the car!!

    Any thoughts about bandage holders in the lid vs. not? It seems convenient, but does it make the lid really heavy?

    alternate cues

    As for cues, it might be a verbal out or asking with your seat. That's how my SS horses have been trained--no tapping on the shoulder with a toe.
