    ^^This.

    I've always just planned on a lot of groundwork (until they are safe under saddle) and then lots of wet saddle pads.

    Favorite Westfalen Approved stallions

    So we've been breeding TB racehorses for a few years now, and I've decided I'd like to breed one of our mares for a warmblood foal. I'm particularly fond of the Westfalens (Westphalians), since they...

    Not desert-ish, but I like to use coconut milk to make rice with. Gives it a neat flavor and goes really well with mild chicken w/ some kind of sauce type dishes.

    JB had it right, IMO. Most horses need harder, dryer feet. Except in extraordinary circumstances, I don't use a moisturizer on my horses' hooves.

    But on another side, I will say that for going...

    We moved to Cynthiana, about 40 minutes NE of Lexington, this past fall. We moved from SE Pennsylvania, so more Mid-Atlantic than Northeast.

    We love it here. For one, the cost of living is...

    I don't think there's anything wrong with Elecrobraid as a permanent fence, so to me, no problem making it semi-permanent either. We have Electrobraid on T-posts as our permanent fence with no...

    On my visualization, if it seems like too much to think about, maybe try just concentrating on the "belly in" part as the horse comes up in front (while sitting back like you mentioned).

    As far as...

    Well, sounds like he's not too picky then! I'd definitely split it into two feedings if it's not too much trouble for the barn. That way it's not too salty. I have a two mares like this. And they...

    Sometimes different visuals help different people.

    I kind of visualize belly out, belly out, belly in, in rhythm to the stride. But it's not arching the back on belly out, it's more of a thinking...

    I would say it depends on how much feed he gets. If he's an easy keeper and gets minimal grain, I'd split it, otherwise I don't think it matters much.

    You said he like the TC Sr., but have you tried the TC Complete? It is a bit higher NSC, but it's higher fat, higher calorie, and costs the same per bag, at least in my area. It might let you feed...

    I agree that 4-6 hours of work a day is a lot for a 3rd grader, especially as you said he already has attention issues. But there's nothing wrong with trying it to see how it goes for you.
