First Level and Training level are 2 different divisions. Training level isn't a "warm up/practice" division. People can use them as such but it's not the organizer's problem to schedule it in 'the...
I have earphones that goes directly in my ears and are made for runners so they stay there despite all my (unvoluntary) head shaking/boucing.
Oh, is that so?
It is indeed... but you think that the judge should have substract 6 points just for that 2 sec. head movement?
These are Matthias Rath's rides. He's in the low 80%...not...
First, the halt is just a part of a whole movement being judged, so Col. Carde should know better than that.
Horses aren't majikal nor motorised tools. They aren't perfect and that's why they ever...
Was it tested to see if there is fungus or bacteria in there?
I suggest you ask those questions to your farrier and take notes.
There is no reason why you can't talk to him/her about your concerns.
If you don't understand or like his answers, ask again...
You've been out of the sand box for too long... Bling is everywhere, EVERYWHERE.
The SRS is breeding and riding lipizzaners, not lusitanos or PRE (andalusians).
Bullfighting horses are typically lusitanos.
So far the weirdest horse I've seen was a Canadian x Trackehner. The...
First of all, read the rules (this one is from the FEI but it really doesn't matter) P. 13 for the different types of trot.
Transitions, transitions, transitions within the gait. The horse must...
Don't look at Donatella Versace.
I believe it becomes addictive. Once you start, it seems hard to stop and if one surgeon says no, the scalpel-addict will go see elsewhere.
I can't believe...
Cycling shorts with removable padding.
Something like those that you could maybe somehow cut in half to accomodate your hip?
Why would top WP riders take dressage lessons? Except for the straight position of the rider, whatever is being asked from the horse is quite different.
For the "cord" of the saddle: choose a color piping, but not of the "metallic" type as it just won't last...the material will eventually crack and chips.
I have a 3yrs old saddle with gold piping...
And since I was one who "jumped" on the OP, I will repeat myself;
When you want to do X-Y-Z, don't go buy a yearling of a breed you don't know (no matter how good is its pedigree).
I mainly do like you but change sides depending on which hand is holding the whip.
I've "Salute" with the whip in hand once...:eek:
Is the horse sound now?
If not, I would wait to ''reveal'' anything before he is.
Not wanting to be a Debbie Downer but you just never know what could happen.
Bad shoeing jobs can take...
Lesson horses, like Findeight said, aren't usually for people just to hop on and enjoy. They are lesson horses! :)
The best solution would be to lease a horse from someone who doesn't mind if you...
The bits are obviously both too low.
I would wait for your trainer to be there to help you adjust it before trying to ride with the double.
The OP's business is training students to become better riders and horsepeople.
If the student isn't training seriously enough but still wants to compete, it is normal for the OP to feel that the...
Why would this be your farrier's fault?
You should ask your farrier what you should do to help your horse's feet.
Better nutrition, better turn out, more exercice...
Bareback and only halter/1 lead rope.
A few times per week when I go get the older gelding I'm taking care of from his field to the barn and when I bring him back. Why wasting my steps? LoL
I would not discard the PSSM idea.
I know you wrote the horse's been fed a special diet for a year now but maybe something changed recently? More luxurious grass, new treats, apples/carrots, new...
I have both (with sunburst rowels and without rowels) and use both on the same horse. I also have a pair of spurs with a "rolling ball" for shedding seasons.
It really depends on the situation,...
