    Buck has a clinic in Redmond, OR, but only every other year. He will be back probably June-ish in 2016. There's a facility between Bend and Redmond, neat folks. Lots of neat folks, in fact, and I'll...

    Pocket, you did just fine price wise in Central Oregon for good quality grower-bought (ie reputation for future sales) hay. You can get it cheaper, but going cheaper sometimes means a few reject...

    Pocket, thanks for the reply.
    I've been out of the loop a while, a dear friend passed away over Thanksgiving.

    I've really got a lot out of my Mom's time with Harry Whitney- she audits or rides,...
  10. Pocket Pony, how was the Harry Whitney clinic?

    I was hoping to hear about this one, or read it on your blog.
    If it is already on your blog, I'll read it there.

    Did you go?

    I had an old 'form-fitter' (high horn, big swells, high cantle) that I rode my OTTB in for a while...the thing would hold you in...

    HIH,
    the other part that Dr. Deb understands and tries to communicate is the deep emotional work, the communication on a feel rather than a mechanical signal.

    My OTTB in particular, No. I would not try to pony if I were re-habbing him.

    Teaching a horse to hobble, even with the very best of trainers, is still a risk. That said, I'd rather risk the hobble-breaking than not, because any horse can get his foot/leg trapped in a stall or...
