    Yes it is. Which is why my trainer tells me to shorten the reins about 100 times a lesson. (And why I asked her, after watching the video she took of a dressage test, "why do you let me go around...

    Yes! The responses on this thread really confuse me (but I guess people just didn't read the OP's post about the horse falling on the ramp). You are never going to be able to teach him to load if he...

    If you go to the help forum I think this issue is covered. I think it is a problem with internet explorer. I use Chrome and don't have this problem.

    :eek::eek::eek: Wow, Jonathan, how low can you go? Sorry this happened to you, John, and like I said, I would not hesitate to buy a horse from you. They all sound lovely.

    But why is it a gamble when you have to wear a regular vest under it anyway?

    My guy (also 9) had a partial tear, with some remodeling, and also some ligament damage that occurred during a paddock incident in early April. His prognosis as a riding horse is not good, but he was...

    John and his wife seem to have nice horses with legitimate hunt experience. I looked at a horse they had several years ago and certainly didn't see any red flags. That is like a sad story, but...

    I would at least try to talk to a vet and ask about giving him naquazone or dex if you have any. But talk to the vet first!

    If he falls on the ramp every time of course he isn't going to load! If you got whacked in the head every time you got in your car I bet you wouldn't want to get in your car! You need to figure out...

    I've had 2 pairs. I wear them everyday for an hour or 2. Both lasted at least 3 years. While all other brands have lasted a year or less. I hate paying so much for them, but for me in the long run it...

    I've had 2 premature exits. Once at a horse trial when my tb hopped over the rail. And my current horse decided to "exit at A" at his second schooling show. I told everyone my tb was more creative!

    Try Pine Sol (or generic) on the walls of her stall. That seems to help. Good luck!

    Well, I haven't read all the responses. I am just wondering if you have contacted her about her non-payments. Seems like that would be the most reasonable first step, before going all gung-ho and...

    I just use hot water to clean the bit. And I am bad about not taking the bridle apart and cleaning it except before a show. Although I fox hunt most weeks in the winter, so then it gets done much...

    He is 7. It sounds like we have a similar plan as yours. His canter has gotten SO much better. I've only had him since late April and he has made so much progress. I'm really pleased with his brain....

    Yeah, I was expecting much worse! My guy has a much thicker neck and throat latch. I agree, pull it short.

    My trainer pays a flat rate per stall, but she is not responsible for any mucking, etc. She may do her own feeding; I'm not sure.

    We are really not doing much jumping, except at a trot. Which I think is good for his mind, so that we aren't just doing flatwork.

    I tried Retread's exercise, circling over a single pole,...

    Yes, he is very quite heavy on his forehand. Fortunately I have lots of hills, and we do lots of walking (mostly) and some trotting up hills.

    He was basically a driving horse, and the seller put a...

    Thanks guys. He is my first non-tb in awhile--he's a perch/paint x, so I think jumping doesn't come as easy to him. And he doesn't tend to respect simple rails if they don't have fill--so I have to...
  22. My greenie can't find a distance if it hit him in the head

    My last horse was great at finding his own spot. But the new greenie is having trouble figuring things out.

    Mostly we are trotting fences right now and he is fine with that. We have done some...
