    FWIW, my accident happened on a completely clear day, in the middle of the afternoon, and we hadn't had rain in awhile so the roads were completely dry. I was also on a busy interstate in between the...

    I'm another one that's going to vouch for cllane1!! She's super insightful and would be a great connection to have. If you ever need a change of pace we have a great event barn just down the...

    I was going to suggest the polo wrap, but baxtersmom beat me to it. It works great for the ones who are slightly lazy with their hind ends by reminding them to keep bringing those legs forward.

    I agree with whoever said the Happy Mouth gives a completely different feel. My guy just leans on the Happy Mouth but goes beautifully in either the Duo or the Nathe. In my opinion the Duo is...

    The mare has nothing on her usea record so I'm assuming this was her first event. Novice seems like a good place to start!! It must have been a stunning test. Congrats to her!!

    According to his USEA record he's a '98 model which would make him 17 this year not 15. They also have his sire listed as Idol and not Ideal. :confused:

    I believe the OP is in Australia where Preliminary dressage is roughly equivalent to our Training level. Anyways, an 81% at any level is fantastic. Sounds like it was a lovely test!!

    We don't ship our horses loose, but our Adam's 2+1 trailer is configured for the horses to ride backwards. They load up the side ramp and then enter the stalls facing out the back of the trailer....

    It looks like he was dabbling in the jumpers last year. The last show recorded with the USEF was in October of last year.

    In terms of flexibility in the bit, I find the nathe to be the most flexible. I ride my guy in one every now and then when I want to encourage him to seek a more even contact. He and I have a left...

    Have you considered spending a few days in Ireland? It's a quick, cheap flight from England and the place is crawling with super nice horses. I may be biased though as this is what we did and where...

    Love love love the Cocosoya!! They make a powdered form that my horse gets in his smartpaks. I've heard that the powder isn't as good as the oil, but it keeps weight on my guy and his coat is slick...

    I agree with PonyPenny. Either he's hurting somewhere or has just decided it's ok to ignore you. If you've ruled out pain as the cause then it's time to start looking at training issues. It sounds...

    Every instructor I've ever ridden for has had me sign a hold harmless agreement which makes them not responsible for accidents. I'm assuming that this is common practice, right?

    When I was treating my guy, I used one of the big syringes and just squirted it in his mouth (like you would a dewormer). It seemed to be the easiest and quickest way to administer the meds. Mine got...

    I prefer Chatt for several reasons over Poplar. The courses tend to be a bit bigger in the fall, but I think they flow really well. Poplar is sort of a crap shoot in my opinion. You could end up...

    It sounds like you've made a great start!! My first question is how big is the ring that you're cantering her in? Sometimes if the ring is on the smaller size, it's hard for an unbalanced horse to...
