  7. If you could buy your dream saddle.......

    I have been riding in my old Stubben for about 15 years. The other day I rode in a Passier...on my mare who was being tried by a woman about my height. I could not believe how comfortable it was! ...

    Yes, I agree......she doesn't trust me yet. She only trusts the other horses she has been in the herd with. The other day I took her to the wash rack. She has had trouble in there before...with...

  12. Tension.....suppling and relaxation exercises.

    I have a very athletic and talented fiery redhead. She thinks "forward" at all times. She can become quite hot and very tense which manifests itself often in her jaw. She can pull me right down...

    No, she doesn't lock anything. She is super bendy and moves out nicely at the walk and trot. She doesn't feel "locked" to me in anyway. Her back feels relaxed, like she accepts my weight. What...
