We came up in different schools, Laurierace. I was taught that someone's bad behavior doesn't excuse your bad manners.
Sorry, but that's irrelevant to the discussion. Good manners would dictate that you don't respond to her post.
My animals go wherever and sleep wherever. I do not encourage people to come to my house however -people are weird.
It is very difficult to leave a trainer that's not working. Usually you like the person so feelings get in the way. And then of course there's the crazy factor. :D
An eventer friend actually recommended them to me so I guess they're acceptable. They are brilliant!
Flexi leads are the devil!
Word of mouth. I was teaching a science class and one of the students was the captain of the school's equestrian team and I was saying that I'd love to learn dressage and she turned me on to this...
I think prongs are just as easily misused as chokes I'm afraid. The dog person I see regularly has a pulling dog she walks on a prong on a flexi.
I love that I am finally seeing his Fella's real personality and he's a real cut up! I hate how hard he is to fit a bloody saddle. But hate is a strong word -it's an irritation trying to find a...
Indeed there are people who don't use flat collars properly just as there are people who don't use chokes and prongs properly. I have learned -with horses and dogs -that training is in the release. ...
No it was never an issue I had 2 at a time connected to my waist. I'm not a small person so maybe that makes a difference. The one time this happened Yoshi was on a 50 ft line and we were running...
That's not quite right, sorry. When he leans on the collar you have to stop -quite simple. The reason the dog slowly chokes himself by leaning on the collar is because the reward is that he moves...
Having had Rhodesian Ridgebacks for about 15 years I understand your frustration. You can get them to walk on a loose leash. I trained mine on flat collars and harnesses. You don't need a choke...
I will have to concur with these other posters. Not knowing your horse from a hole in the ground, does he NEED $5000 saddle, chiro and massage? No. Say the truth -you can't afford where you are,...
Canned pumpkin is my go-to for diarrhea. I had an IBS kitty and this is the only thing that worked.
I have asthma and a wood stove. Mine is a Vermont Castings Dutchwest catalytic stove. I also have a cast iron steamer on top of the stove
It probably is affecting your horse OP. My horse is 24/7 365. If he went from that to sitting around in a stall I'd see the difference.
My point is that the outsider sees things differently doesn't he? From the inside a shadbelly and top hat seem normal. From the outside a person doing horse ballet in top hat and tails seems silly....
I think you're right -we all probably mean the same thing are just stating it in different terms. Good catch!
Eerm, some of you guys need to mind karma. People in top hats and shadbellies ought not throw bling stones.:D
Just sayin' we all...
I would love to try sessions on them. Are there any in the MD/PA area?
I completely disagree. Horses adjust their expectations all the time for riders -the really intuitive ones do. School horses are famous for it. My horse does it. I see other horses do it.
Indeed. I've rarely seen such a show of bad manners to a new person.
Daaaaaaammmmmn! Those are fiiiiiiine. I think I piaffed a little bit (to borrow from Monsieur Colbert).
