    My horse is chronically off/on with Lyme and EPM. And passes out/knees buckle in the cross ties. This post has me thinking about his myriad issues, and if we are missing the forest for the trees...

    The show this weekend is cancelled due to lack of entries? Wow. I have been curious how the new Freedom Series would affect CCHSA.

    Ditto to what everyone said otherwise.

    I made a wool quarter sheet years ago that I always get compliments on - I didn't have any pattern and am not a terribly experienced sew-er. I used another quarter sheet (that was actually too...

    30-something TB gelding in our barn gets rather *upset* if anything changes/does not fit his usual routine. He can only go in the same small-ish paddock every day now and must always have his seeing...

    It's not cutting the hairs - I think it catches the undercoat hairs to pull. I don't really understand how it works because the blades have a much smaller serration than a traditional shedding blade.

    Have not used the furminator on a horse - works great on my lab and on me when I forget that I'm wearing fleece to the barn and decide it's a good time to start shedding the gray pony :D Did not...

    Shedding Season PSA

    Discovered last night that a "Furminator" (for dogs!) is really excellent at getting all the loose hairs off fleece clothing. Worked so much better than my usual method of scraping myself with the...

    Mostly I wanted to send a more "complete" package to the trainer who is going to break him, but I agree - I don't want to chase and make a mess of it. Last night I was reminded of a large pony I...

    I tried exactly that - just a ground pole and asking for the canter over it. Nothing! He's great at going on a big circle - doesn't pull so I'm definitely not pulling against him. I started with...

    Have two - the Ashland I and Ashland II. Yes, I like them :) The saddle maker came to my barn when he was here in the US - he's great! I prefer the Ashland II. I also have a Beval which I don't...

    I use a part of my bigger ring that I've sort of sectioned off with jumps to make a smaller lunging area. He's very good in general - ground manners, everything! He totally "gets" it. I have...
  14. teaching a young pony to canter on lunge - help?

    This is a new problem for me - the 4 yr old welsh/TB I'm teaching to lunge just will not canter on the lunge line. Just keeps trotting faster. We've got walk/trot/whoa/stand mastered. He's VERY good...

    Sorry - he is 4 this year. Welsh/TB. Got him last fall - he'd been turned out in a pasture and was just halter broke. He's wearing a bridle ok now.

    OMG. I would not have been happy with that at all. I have done a few clinics, although none with Jeff Cook, and have never had someone be that awful. EEEK.

    Jeff Cook clinic

    From looking at old threads, it seems he's generally well-liked as a clinician.

    I'm just starting back to riding after January-February completely off. (No indoor!) I will really need the...

    I came from the opposite direction of you (Philadelphia) to Elk Neck, so can't say. It would be a low key weekend - my dog liked it :)

    Last year I did Harper's Ferry and Great Elk Neck State Park. Liked them both - Harper's Ferry is way more touristy and has shopping, etc. Camped and hiked at both - Great Elk is better for that,...
