    My horse is doing quite well with the blanket, it may even be helping (hard to say 100% if its the blanket since I started a couple other things at the same time, unfortunate time is of the essence...

    it would take considerable more money to hire a full time professional to train beyond the board price for 3-4 yrs, in addition to being able to fund my current horse so I can stay riding.

    BOT- acclimate or just throw on?

    I know BOT wants a 4 hr a day for a few days before leaving on overnight. Great. I'm all for following rules!

    But--I don't "get" why this is important.

    My horse is stalled due to an injury for...
  6. General time frame to heal mild muscle hip sprain?

    Horse slipped and hurt himself, no major tears, no ligaments, etc. Sound at walk (now) and a tad short at trot (about 2-4" from tracking up). No irregularites and no head bob. His hip is tight but...

    Every horse is going to have something to work on, not just riding horses. I'm a massage therapist and every horse I have seen (albeit small scale) has some tension and soreness. Even those who are...

    have you ridden the horse? do you get along with him? Do you get a good ride out of him TODAY? It doesn't matter what he has done if you don't click with him and get a decent ride out of him.

    Its about control, you nailed it. And don't underestimate the effects of stress.

    I HIGHLY suggest Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction-- works very well with anxiety. Try to get Jon Kabat-Zinn's...

    so do you stop him from doing this or let him walk fast? Halt when ever he gets fast. If he is a dressage horse, he should know how to listen :)

    If that doesn't work, halt and back up. Over and...

    sounds like a very stupid woman. I don't think we can say anything besides that.

    yes, sounds like my horse. He needs the routine and direction. I plan to have a NH person work with him this summer.

    I'm a huge believer that dressage creates harmony and obedicence, but the...

    I'm not sure what others said, but I didn't say that exactly. I said it sounds like she can be rather dramatic.... the woe is me then shortly after that: BEST FRIENDS FOREVER come horse shopping with...

    Yeah, with all the drama of the call, why would I board with this person? How can they be so financially secure now with a barn/boarders? I didn't realize they had their own farm. If you want to go...

    I'm happy for you, but my first thought was she was asking because she can again act like its her horse. I could imagine it spiring into "oh, gee, can I ride him today?"

    If she can seperate that...

    Yes, agree. Give it some time before you claim yours is better.

    It's not my thing, but go for it if you want. Just be sure it's legal and you won't stand out for the wrong reasons.

    When in doubt, I don't :)

    Nothing I found really cleans it---I just get black padding now.

    (agree its grime, not the black showing through).

    Yes, what exactly do you want then? He got a well thought out card. You shredded it. I know I wouldn't be as likely to get you a card next year! LOL
    Sounds like he is trying, on some level?

    You...

    I wouldn't automatically assume that since your horse was fussy the warmup was bad. Here's why: sometimes us ammys don't ask enough of the horse, and when the trainer comes in the exptations are...
