    Do a search on Mundial - there are a lot of similar stories. I know a few people who have gotten boots that just didn't fit - at all. Unfortunately, Mundial seems to have a few quality control...

    Sorry, but that is just wrong. If you have ever been involved with teaching or READ anything about how people learn, you will realize it is hard-wired into the brain. Some people learn by watching,...

    I have audited a ton of clinics with many big-name trainers (Steffan Peters, Debbie McDonald, Leslie Morse, Juan Matute, Heather Blitz, Mary Wanless, Walter Zettl, Hilda Gurney to name a few well...

    First real break was to finish college and start a professional career. When I reached a point of comfort in my career, I started riding again. Then about 15 years later, took a break because my...

    Reviving an old thread... I was at a judges training a few years ago (I am an L grad, not a judge) and the teacher (an S judge and a DSHB judge) said the same thing about a horse as it went around...

    I have made comments on people going too deep into corners - usually because the horse is not ready for it and loses balance and forward energy. Some people try to ride a corner like a real angle -...

    I think you have to look at individual GMOs? We have a few of them in California put on by chapters of the California Dressage Society.

    They aren't a breed registry. No one argues that point (although they DO run PHR). But they are the show result data base in the US - and those show results should provide accurate lineage, horse...

    Every horse has its own schedule. There is no formula. In general, I would introduce small amounts of collection - use the lateral work to help, and transitions within the gait (a few steps...

    At this angle, it is hard to tell - he does look to be leaning onto the forehand - but again, could that be the effect of dropping his head - without video of the movement (entry, halt, strike off)...

    Totally agree! I understand some halts are not true halts - but in general, I do think they get properly scored. Showing a horse that ducks his head AS the rider salutes - I'd much rather see how...

    Another who does NOT oil. Lederbalsm - I do it about every other week. And damp cloth to wipe it down after almost every ride. Do NOT use soap often - it will fade the black to green.

    Probably bay - I don't see any scelera around his eyes that might indicate appy pattern. Sometimes they do "frost" as they get older, but you usually see at least some appy characteristics when...

    I haven't had to do it myself (now hock injections, yes). BUT... I know several people who have, and it has been successful. As prior poster says, every horse is different, but I know of a few who...

    People on Horses! They make lovely browbands, stock ties, and sport boots. The boots don't have bling but you an get them in patent, and in alligator skin print (yes, I have a pair of patent...

    Two total different registries. Friesian Heritage Horse has separate books for sport horses and utility horses, recognizing that not all Friesian crosses ARE sport horses. They also offer up...

    Totally agree w/ your last sentence - and that is my point w/ TB mares too. Way too many people think they can pick up a TB mare for free (or under $1,000 which is essentially free) and breed future...

    I use to have lights - rode at 5:30 in the morning. Now I work at home part of the time and travel part of the time. So when I travel, I don't ride, and when I work at home, I flex my schedule. It...

    Not my area of expertise since it isn't the type of cross I do... But remember, many people are breeding for family horses. There is more to breeding then the sport horse market. And for someone...

    It comes from strong use of the core - and a horse who is confident in the connection. If you ask the horse to go a bit forward and give the reins a bit, they should lengthen the neck and lift the...

    Realize this can be a combination of marketing (why would you buy something different from what WE breed) and lack of knowledge. The Euro registries are fabulous marketing machines.

    It is never a good idea to "always" cross or breed anything. As you are well aware, it means going into it with some research, knowledge, and enough money and/or training skills to make whatever you...

    Yes, and I'd go a step further - in ANY registry, once "halter" classes become the goal, the breed suffers. Arabian, Morgan, QH, any breed where the big bucks are in halter horses means breeders...
