    I have a friend that had the same experience (and I don't think it's you but never know with forum names). She had to hire a lawyer and eventually got the jumps after taking action.

    There is no shame in lunging. It's not a shortcut. It's smart and it's training. Honestly, lunging is hard. It took me years of practice to be good at lunging and I find lunging is an interesting...

    All I do is restart Tb's and I am going to call crap on the he is not a "lunging candidate." Rule #1 is that they respect me as a handler, rider and begin to develop trust. When I have a really tough...

    Yay, the awesome thing about all the CANTER horses is they get time to just be horses before they get their retraining and then are rehomed. It makes a huge difference! I love doing the retraining of...

    I find hocks to be fairly easy to maintain so it wouldn't at all scare me away. I don't find the price to be unreasonable for a big horse who has foxhunted and done a lot of hacking. I also don't...
