    My old stallion that I showed in hunters I quit doing warm-ups with; if I did warm-ups he left his best jumps in there; it was better if I took him into the class for the first time--then he jumped...

    I would probably start asking the bending, taking contact, etc. on longlines first, because it is easier to deal with the sucking back/rearing issues on the ground. However, you have to be good at...

    I would not put a standing martingale on a rearer. Back when I was training for the public, I had to do some rearers...I retrained them using draw reins, but again, you have to know what you are...

    If I wanted the place, I would buy it, disinfect it really well, let the paddocks sit 30 days to be sure they were 'clean', and then go ahead and bring horses in. I think that you can do public...
