    Article on "reading" horse's saliva/foam?

    I'm looking for an article/diagram I saw a few years in a magazine- it was very clear/good on the quality of foam when riding dressage (too much foam, dripping with no foam, etc). I tried searching...
  4. Why that solution/scrub/ointment/cream on that cut/abrasion/laceration.

  6. Lead change help for horse that has yet to get it

    My horse is 13 and has yet to get her changes down. She has done a few here and there, so I know it is possible, and she shouldn't have any conformation/serious canter quality issues to impede her. I...

    With my dog I taught him "Out" for many things, out of rooms, out of the way, etc. It translated well to the arena.

  12. Training a dog to act protective (because he won't be naturally)

    My dog is your basic friendly lab/bc mix. I never made a big deal about people arriving to give him something to think about, and I did my best to socialize him. He isn't at all questioning of people...

    I'm having a hard time imagining the owner's being the "littering" type with their sense of humor.

    Littering to mean to keep the dog unspayed and get babies every time the opportunity arises.

    The horse might as well be broke to death on the flat she listens to half halts so well. I like riding on the flat, but riding her more on the flat isn't going to slow her down XC.

    Her balance is...
