    I agree with you netg theoretically. On young horses, it is better to encourage them to keep moving forward with their back round. The problem goes back to what is seen in AA 2nd level classes. My...

    I think now there is a dividing line more so than before when you had to sit the trot at first level. I think learning how to sit the trot at the same level as the first time collection is...

    It is more than fair to have your vet look at his hocks. I would have to agree with those who said to watch your position. There is a lot of jumping around riders do thinking they are "helping"...

    I am celebrating after showing my mare this weekend. We have been showing 3rd level this year. At home, she has 4th level, creeping up on PSG balance. At the shows, she can really splat! I have...

    I agree with TickleFight. He must go forward. You need to find a rider who will give him his head when they ask him to move. Now isn't the time to worry about the connection. It sounds like he is...

    I have a mare I bought as a two year old that has a very dominant alpha personality. She was a pill to ride until she was 7. You always had to prove you were the boss. Lucky for me I had a cupcake of...

  8. Does anyone know where they are posting the NAJYRC scores?

    My trainer is there coaching a Jr. and I wanted to see how they are doing.

    If you love the Icon Flight and you horse goes well in it, why even try another brand? I don't mean to sound rude, but if it was just "ok", then I would keep trying saddles. But it sounds like the...

    Cool update! I think when you get arthritic horses moving over their back, it builds their top line which put less stress on the joints. Horses also generally like to work. Also, it will help you...

    As far as building a top line, you have to work your horse over his back and into a good quality contact. TB take longer typically, as their phenotype is leaner. They Imagine having a marathon...

    A couple of thoughts on saddles and saddle fitting in general.

    1) I would not trust a fitter who went to a weekend course. We have one in our area. Going to the manufacturer for a weekend does...

    Well said HSS. I have had many tell me to save my $$ and then can buy a riding horse and try it. The thing is, I've always ridden what I have at the time. I can jump, as I used to event. Although I...

    I do all my own riding. I have an I1 horse and my younger mare who will show 4th/PSG later this year. I bought my 2 year old who had a tough temperment especially as a youngster, but has become a...

    I guess I should clarify. I have been thinking of doing an ET with my current mare. I saw my friends' filly and asked if she would sell her. She said yes and gave me the price. The second filly was...
  16. Buying a weanling as an FEI prospect for an AA

    I am considering buying a weanling this time around. The last horse I bought was a 2 year old that was dressage bred. She moved well, and was going to be small which was a plus for me being 5'3. She...

    I would second the notion of forward. I learned that if you are moving forward into a nice rein(not too long or too short) they find where to connect. The thoroughness has to start from the energy of...

    I have transition envy after watching that freestyle! I especially loved the extended canter to pirouettes. Go Guenter!

    Well, after much deliberation, I ordered the foam CWD. I got to ride in it again, and my mare loved it. I was told if the worst happened, I would need to send it to CA to have the panels replaced...

    Foam vs. wool

    I am trying to get some info on foam saddles, as I tried a French one yesterday. I have always had wool flocked, and have been told it is the best because you can change it. Does the foam break down...

    CWD Saddles

    I just tried one of these on a whim and was pleasantly surprised how much I liked it. Has anyone else ridden in one or owns one? What would you say it would compare to? I have never ridden in a foam...

    Thin Line! I have small hands and two reins are a lot. I used to use plain reins with stops, but I was always shortening my reins because they would slide to the next stop and be too long.

    Yes, I offered my very sound 18 year old I 1 schoolmaster to her, but he was too old!

    Yes Emily F, I failed to mention it needed to be a 7 mover. Not that your TB couldn't be that, but in my neck of the woods, that is a tall order for under 15K. I just meant to highlight the fact the...
