    Not to derail the thread, but I cannot stand when people say "I seen that." YOU FREAKING SAW THAT!

    It is common down here. I have seen people write that in professional emails!

    You could always try the free lease option to see if anyone does click with him... My gelding was off and on lame a few years ago and at first the vet tried a few different things for him, but...

    I completely agree... My mother grew up with a VERY southern family. She hated the southern drawl and was careful to never speak that way. Since she did not have much of an accent and my dad was from...

    I don't know this farm, but this is so true of businesses and people in general. You can never make everyone happy, so if you like this farm and they're doing well now then I wouldn't hold something...

    Don't count out the 15.2-16.2 hand horse range! DH is 6'6 and somewhat lanky (about 210 lbs), but he regularly rides QHs and Paints in that height range. Granted it's western which doesn't make you...

    I'm a born and bred Georgian and I'm definitely guilty of dropping the T in canter, but I think I'm pretty good at pronouncing it in hunter!

    When I get good and ticked off lunging a horse that...

    Such a pet peeve of mine... I've seen plenty of "unregistered American Warmbloods" and I'm like, that's a grade QH people... A talented horse is a talented horse, but don't go calling a big grade...

    FYI - Remember the Titans is on TV. It's crazy to imagine the hate that was common 40 years ago.

    I wonder how we'll all feel about this in 40 years.

    How does one maintain proper hold on the reins while sticking out their index finger and thumb to see which one makes the "L" :confused::confused: ;)

    Do you know which dude ranch and/or the name of the horse? This has piqued my interest...

    ETA: If you ever hear that a horse came from a dude ranch, but you are buying that horse through a dealer,...

    Left and right is too confusing... My brain can only handle inside and outside.

    I trailer in so I get to stay out of all the drama :D

    However, I think I'm that weird ammy adult that is only seen at weekly lessons for an hour and randomly shows up at shows... I'm sure all the...

    You're not supposed to start a sentence with a conjunction... Clearly grammar is important to the topic at hand!

    I have an APHA (which is essentially a spotted QH) who is half TB. She rocks it in the over fences classes! Her dam was a very successful TB hunter so I think she gets her form over fences from her....

    vxf111 - that was a lovely course for a baby! I have had much worse on much less green horses :lol:

    We use pretty much the exact same method that Bluey described. It's been working well for my MIL who has been breeding AQHA and APHA horses for 20+ years.

    How high are the fences? I started my APHA gelding over teeny tiny cross rails and maybe 12" verticals when he was a long 3 year old, but I can't imagine doing a course of sizeable jumps with a 3...

    Some horses/ponies seem to always try this no matter how many times you correct them... I trail ride my gelding a lot and he was fine for years. Then maybe 5 years ago I started trailing riding him...

    Most training forks that I have seen sit much lower than a normal running martingale, so I think you'll find that neither the standing nor the running martingale will give you the same effect.

    Be careful or you'll have the ApHC folks all over you!

    Thought I'd also add that this thread is really making me feel like I should change my username to SplashOveroHunter since my overo hunter is actually a splash overo :lol:

    Pinto can be most any breed with spots, but a paint is a breed. You can have a paint who isn't a pinto (breeding stock) and a pinto who isn't a paint (spotted TWH for example).

    Therefore the horse...
