    We have an ex County saddle fitter that now works independently in our area. I absolutely love independent fitters! While she does own a consignment shop, she has never tried to sell me anything out...

    Before I came to SCR 7 years ago, I was quite a fan of trail rides. I can't remember any time that I thought a guide was on a horse that wasn't fit for the ride (lame or otherwise), but I can...

    If you do like him when you see him, definitely request a trial so you can try to show grounds for yourself.

    Also, there are plenty of horses in between 14 year old ranch horse and 20 something...

    Makes me wonder where all those guys went to shop for their costumes ;)

    A lot of times you can't see the fencing. I know in my area it is off in the woods and there to keep wildlife off the interstate.

    I'm sure there's a law somewhere about it, but there should at...

    I'd go see him if the price was right, but I agree with alibi about the "dressage tricks" comment. Sounds like he may be a bit pushy which is why they say he needs an experienced rider.

    That reminds me of a funny story. We had a mare that was pretty good in WP, but had a true 3 beat lope and while very slow, she would occasionally pass a 4 beating peanut roller and you never want to...

    We haven't put on a clinic, but were considering it since we have such a great venue, until we heard a horror story from a friend and decided it wasn't worth the trouble.

    Yep, she's the one that easily gets the stride and is easy to keep in front of my leg with that beautiful huntery ground covering stride. I lucked out with her and thank my lucky stars every day. Not...

    I can imagine a big young QH with enough promise to warrant that kind of money. I can also imagine someone hoping on a 16.3 QH and jumping it a few times and wanting to get a lot of money for it...

    I have the same problem at the moment. DH took some videos of me and I watched them and then watched some of the more talented riders at my barn who show the A/Os.

    I have had horses of all stride types.

    My first show horse was a 17.1 Hanoverian mare who had a monstrous stride. To the naked eye she would appear to easily lope down the line, but if you...

    I grew up in Suburbia where my neighborhood required 3 ES buses, 1 or 2 MS buses, and the HS bus was a little less crowded so we picked up some of the kids from a nearby neighborhood. ES was picked...

    I live in the middle of nowhere and our only choices are Walmart and Ingles (if we're feely particularly fancy).

    The nearest local/healthy/whole food store is in Athens and 45 min away :cry::cry:

    Their website makes me sick. I bet Sundays were the only days the dogs got out of the shed - if they were even that lucky :(

    If we didn't have 4 dogs already I would take one. I really hope all...

    Rational thinking wasn't her strong suit. It's not like he went into the line with a 12' stride, saw the jump, freaked out, and slowed down... He just has midget legs and prefers to be behind my leg...

    I got DH to give me a piggy back ride once and I asked him to lope (he rides WP). Then I asked him for a lead change and still had my spurs on... It took him awhile to give me another piggy back ride!

    I'll second the Doberman suggestion. My Doberman, even as a young dog, was very laid back and a couch potato. He looked intimidating, but there wasn't a mean bone in his body.
