    I was taught to do it with a closed fist. I did it with an open hand once and got yelled at! :eek:

    Thank you for all of the helpful advice and information. I did end up getting the Thorowgood, and I will see how it fits her. It'll be an easy resale if it does not. And she's perfectly comfortable...

    Thank you both for the insight, and you both confirmed my feelings.

    We won't be showing again until later in the season, if at all. Right now, we're having some issues with anxiety and curling...

    Saddles that bridge

    Is it ever acceptable to just pad a saddle which bridges? How much of a difference does it really make to pad it?

    I had been riding my new mare in a Wintec the seller is allowing me to borrow,...

    I've got two!

    Colder Than Halo (Grimsey)

    Before

    Grim was actually found by a friend, and came with two other geldings. He's a OTTB by Devils Bag. When I got him, he had the Dead Eye. There...

    I don't think good horsemanship (knowledge) should be limited to kids/teens who have aspirations of becoming a trainer. If you're going to ride for sport, shouldn't you make it a goal to educate...

    I, for one, would love to ride that beast. Won't say anything else re: horse and rider, since it's not my place, but shame on RG. smh.

    Thank you, DennisM. I have seen that article, however I do have free jumping experience. I've used a chute for training young horses and OTTBs. I've just never had a horse that abhors free jumping...

    That's a good point kookicat. I've used both a halter and a bridle on her for free jumping. She certainly doesn't seem to care one way or the other. She's a bit of an odd duck, if I'm honest... hard...

    I'm in NW Arkansas, and no, I do not. My mentor used to breed welsh ponies & oldenburgs, but has retired to Hawaii, and we never covered any testing/inspection information. There are no breeders in...

    Thank you for the responses. I do give her treats, but not grain. She never seems too thrilled with treats of any sort; it's kind of like she'll take them if she has to, but only because it's there....
  12. MPT - mare hates free jumping, wwyd?

    My mare despises free jumping with the passion of 1,000 burning suns. She'll jump all day long with a rider, but she doesn't think it's worth the effort to jump a stick when she could be...

    Thank you, all!

    I actually did contact FireFly bonnets, but have not heard back (it's been a while), so thought I would ask around. I'm hoping she is able to get with me when she has time,...

    Ear bonnets for a wide head?

    I have a mare who gets horribly bothered by gnats around her ears. I figured I would start using an ear bonnet, and happened to have two from when I owned a headshaker. When I tried them on, however,...

    I spent the majority of my morning watching Disney made-for-TV movies from the 90's, early 2000's. I feel no shame.

    It would be concerning to me. I suffer from partial onset seizures. I can hold a conversation, type, drive, and even ride during a seizure. Some people who have PO seizures don't even realise they're...

    I like my Pessoas, but I've never used the Dover boots, so can't add to what anyone else has said. A client has the fleece line Horseware boots, and they've stayed pretty clean; the mare's legs don't...

    I haven't been so thrilled with them since they told me to take a new, torn blanket "to a local tailor." But I'm just being bitter.

    As long as I can still get supplements, I'll get over it. Plus...

    Haven't gotten through the whole thread yet, but have to say this:

    Cyclists around here are pretty good about obeying traffic laws. There will be the occasional stop sign runner (met one just the...

    Rolling on the lunge line?

    A few months ago, I had a lovely saddle fitter come out to take a look-see. Since my youngest OTTB is barely started under saddle, she wanted to me to lunge him without tack. She watched for a while,...
