    I am surprised a university vet school would not have seen something like this before. Are you working with someone high on the food chain there? Where did you have the surgery done?

    In any case,...

    I have two horses with stifle issues. My older horse began showing signs upward fixation when he was five or six. It looked very similar on the longe line, and always affected the outside hind. We...

    That is very typical with a stifle lameness. The toe first landing is the result of the leg being stuck in extension. This may be mechanical (patella not releasing) or may be that the horse has...

    The stifle may not be completely stuck so it is not locked out behind. There are degrees to this. When he knuckles over the stifle does not appear flexed as it is during the normal stride, so he...

    Looks to me like classic stifle catching. When you say they cut the stifle, did they completely sever the medial patellar ligament?

    My horse turns five on Wednesday and we have not killed each other yet.

    He has learned to piaffe (in-hand).

    He has learned to pee on command when I whistle "Camptown Races."

    See my links above.



    He is definitely flat, especially compared to the this horse, which shows a ground-covering stride with clear rhythm, uphill balance and suspension (apples to oranges):

    The question was asking about the differences in flying changes across disciplines. No reason to get all hot and bothered. Talking about the differences in the quality if changes is not "discipline...

    Flying changes are not difficult to train, but good dressage flying changes take time develop because they require collection (strength and balance) and straightness. In dressage we want the change...

    I would like to suggest watching (and listening carefully to) this video with Edward Gal and Voice, who at the time was learning the one-tempis. He specifically addresses this. Also make note of what...

    It is what the seller is calling piaffe and my remark is in reference to the section of video he calls piaffe training that was mentioned above. Not my idea of piaffe and not what I would do with my...

    I have no problem with circus tricks either, as long as the horse is treated well.

    It's not what I would do with a horse but she handled the pressure well with the piaffe, didn't lose her wits and showed a great temperament. I'd take a baby like this over a feral hooligan that...

    I think that was plenty tactful. I am not a great trainer myself but have been in the trenches long enough to be humbled at how hard it is. I trained my older horse to do tempis, though unfortunately...

    Well said.

    And somewhere in there you also have to make them more brilliant.



    Yes, you can't shut a horse down whenever he makes a mistake. It's a very common training pitfall. You have to...

    It's a big load of sanctimonious BS. I couldn't guess at the motivation.
