    I've always owned OTTBs and, in all reality, it will depend on the particular horse. Just like people, they all have their own personalities and idiosyncrasies.

    I'd love to join in! I'm new to dressage and have worked through a few exercises with my trainer, but I'm sure it would help me with lots of issues we are working through!

    I have always loved TBs and they will always be my go-to horse. Incredibly smart (which is both good and bad), with a lot of heart and a good go button. It's also easy to find a nice one for a good...

    Can't believe I missed this thread when it was started.

    I rode hunters all growing up, mostly because it was the thing to do and also because, as many have said, all young girls want to jump! I've...

    I've always bought horses without my trainer and always been lucky, but then I know exactly what I am looking for. I don't think it would be a problem to pre-screen without a trainer and bring her in...

    Just based on your descriptions of the two, it sounds like you've already decided B is the way to go. She doesn't sound like she will be too difficult to train, especially when she starts trusting...

    I paid $850 for my current horse, $100 for my saddle (which is ancient, but works well for us) and most of his other stuff was from my old horse or bought used or on clearance. I keep him at a great...

    I've got a really stupid question...

    Thanks for all of the suggestions! Looks like I'm going to be developing a new bit collection for the new boy. Too bad none of my old bit collection suits him! I hadn't thought of a baucher or full...

    Bit Recommendations

    I'm having trouble finding a dressage legal bit my horse will go decently in. He's a 5 yo OTTB who had very little training outside of the racetrack when I got him. BTW, his teeth have been checked...
