  2. Video example of great training level canter?

    My pony FINALLY figured out how to not be a speed racer motorcycle this spring! Yay! So now we have a very adjustable canter and she can literally canter almost in place when asked. Obviously this...

    Treats all the way! It's a nice way to start off the ride on a good note IMO. My little girl lines herself up without me even holding the reins and will. not. move. until she gets her snack. I...

    We hauled my friends horse to the show grounds on non-show days. We just had one person sit in the box while she walked him past, let him look, rinse and repeat until he could be worked quietly...

    I've got the hitch for the truck and the bars but need to clamps that go in the trailer to hook the bars to the trailer! Hope that made more sense!!
  7. Best clamps to attach to trailer for weight distributing hitch?

    I found a great deal on a used weight distributing hitch but I need clamps to attach the sway bars to the trailer. All the clamps I'm finding seem to fit on a trailer frame without the center of the...

    Alright we tried and tried and I'm definitely messing up the consistent tension when I go to gather back up. When she takes the reins down it's smooth, lovely and the contact weight never changes. ...

    I'm going to try some of these today! I feel like I break the contact for a second when I go to take up my reins, causing her to pop up. I'll text these suggestions and report back!
  10. Tricks for smoothly picking up reins after stretchy trot?

    Little maresypoo does a lovely job following the contact down and giving me a lovely stretchy trot. However when I go to carefully gather back up my reins I always seem to botch it and she pops up...

    I got a Swedish Warmblood in once who was the same way. He had developed the nasty habit of turning away from his lunger and bolt, getting loose. I stripped him of all his tack and put him in a...

    We have tried taking her temp before work, during and after. Even at 120 BPM she still didn't go up at all:-(. She came in at 40BPM from standing in the pasture so we took her temp today and it was...

    Thanks for the advice! We ran a thyroid test on her and it came back good. Just a point towards slightly insulin resistant. We have since put her on just grass hay and a grass ration balancer...

    I always use her name first for any upward transitions so she can prepare. I use "and" to prepare for downward transitions. For a walk to canter I say "Willa..caaaaanter!" For a canter to walk I...

    I found it on Ebay for 14.95! She has more left! It's solid and heavy but not much difference in weight from my HS Dynamic. My pony likes a medium sized bit so I got the 16mm round eggbutt. It...

    Just had to update! Got the M Toulouse Rotation mullen today! Perfect thickness and shape for her usual 16mm preference. Put it in and watched her playfully go to push the bit back into her teeth. ...

    I just had to repost as I was going through the same thing with my young mare. Teeth great, saddle great, vet checked out and she started it randomly. Contact, no contact, rider, no rider, even in...
  19. I agree with a big part of it being prize money. ...

    I agree with a big part of it being prize money. In Hunterworld there is dough to be made even if you're not at the highest levels. People will pay more for a packer that gives them a good chance...

    Alright update! Need some advice! Two vets have examined her and both found nothing on physical other than increased respiration after work. Thought perhaps allergies so they put her on dex. Her...

    I don't have access to a tack store to feel the bits so hoping you can shop for me! My pony has a low palette and a fat tongue and has gone great in a HS Dynamic Eggbutt bit. However after 6 months...

    I'm banging my head on the wall with this as well. My mare started sucking the bit up into her teeth this fall before I had surgery and took 7 months off. Started her lunging 2 months ago and she...
