I have ridden for Janet for over 10 years in clinics, at least 4 and as many as 8 times per year. She gives the same attention and encouragement to every level of rider and every type of horse.
I always shop Goodwill :)
Thanks for the ideas. I would never glue my helmet, it's my Dressage show/clinic helmet too.
And don't worry, I'm not thinking exploding chickens.
I am probably going to enter an ADS Pleasure show soon, and always wear a helmet to drive. Would it ever be proper to put a narrow headband on the helmet to tie it into the rest of the turnout ?
I ride the most comfortable/ easiest one first. That lets ME get warmed up
I give the human Chromium Picolinate to my insulin resistant pony. 8 pills. I also give her 2 magnesium tablets.
I don't know how it compares in price, she won't eat Quiessence.
rothmpp, you are right on the point.
Really people, complaining about what others charge. Why shouldn't trainers/clinicians earn a good living? If you can't afford it, don't ride. Just audit....
The levels are not so divided that one is a "piece of cake" while the next highest is more difficult, especially as one moves up the levels.
There isn't as much difference between training and...
Just about everyone qualifies and competes 2 levels at USDF Regionals.
within the last 5 years, I have been Vintage Cup Horse of the Year at Grand Prix, on my own horse that I bought as a 2 yr old, have won numerous USDF championships on a variety of horses,...
Didn't the OP say that the horse/rider in question were scoring @ 63% in second level ?
That is not very competitive. If that was me, and I was shipping hundreds of miles to a big show, I would...
There are no guarantees that a horse trained to a higher level will win at a lower level.
A talented, great moving, well balanced young horse often places above a steadier, "trained above the...
I lock both my truck and the tack compartment in the trailer. While I trust my fellow exhibitors, Show grounds parking lots are a prime picking grounds for thieves.
I hide my keys somewhere in...
My horse is borderline PSSM, so he gets 14 of the human 400 IU capsules. he will not eat the 1000 IU.
That popping the tail for ingrown hairs sounds pretty interesting. Think I'll give it a try.
Not on the behind with the ivermectin, inside the anus, like inserting a thermometer.
Vit E should be fed at least 5000 mg per day. Most combined supplements only have @ 1000 mg per day.
If you increased the amount of supplement so that the horse gets 5000 mg, there would be a...
Most Vit E and selenium supplements have too much Selenium per Vit E concentration.
My horse is borderline EPSM.
He gets a Vit E/Selenium supplement plus 14 400mg vit E capsules per day. Human...
My Vet just had us insert a 100 lb dose of Ivermetin into the anus to kill any residual pinworms.
No more rubbing at all.
I have seen every color polo shirt or blouse, navy looks really good. It doesn't even need to be a "riding blouse".
It DOES have to be solid color, so those color block, and most of the patterned...
Watch out for beet pulp. It is made from sugar beets.
Be sure that you get no-molasses added, and then soak and rinse it.
Rice bran pellets are very safe
Just a quick update.
Problem fixed. Long and careful warm-up as usual, and more clarity on "being in front of the leg is a requirement, not an option".
He is working very well, and offering...
Thanks, didn't think about the ulcers.
After changing his supplements he is like a different horse, not running off on his forehand, actually trying to learn the collection, etc.
I do try very hard...
Trust me, I know how to train it ;),
just want others opinions and advice about it :)
The 6 yr old that I am currently training has been diagnosed with mild pssm. We are managing with low starch/sugar, extra Vit E. and have balanced the selenium.
On occasion, when asked to go...
Another vote for the V-Free blanket !!!!!
