    Still working on balance and him not leaning and building to the jumps. Meh hasn't learned to rock back yet when he gets a little tight. Mount there are moments of brilliance.

    Oh yes. The cantering. ;)

    My guy is pretty good but his right lead does go rogue sometimes. ;)

    He will go in a frame if I use a lot of leg. And I mean a lot of leg! ;)

    What I have been trying to get him to do is stretch out and look more relaxed in his head and neck. He tends to keep his...

    Ok, question for everyone.

    I had him at a friends for a couple weeks and he kept telling me he needed a stronger bit to bridle up.

    I didn't really agree and we kind of just dropped it.

    It is about pricing and markets.

    And I have worked in that "market" for a long time. I chose to start breeding and work for a living now. ;) I show and breed because I love the horses and the...

    I guess I have just seen a lot of different trainers sell horses to people that either don't fit the horse, or something that they know won't do the job well but because the trainer can do it on the...

    See, I get that for a young horse that has shown and is going around well.

    What I don't understand is the young horses from 3 to 6 that are just started, maybe gone to a few shows. Even with a...

    Very true! I always wonder what happens to those top dollar horses when they don't work out!

    As a breeder I always want my horse to go to the best possible home, preferably someone that will keep...

    Ha ha, my 4 year old has really long eye whiskers too. He got into a spider web the other day and I really wish I had taked a picture!! :lol:

    He is clumsy so I wouldn't dare trim his eye whiskers!!

    Wanted to add that in my curiosity searching for young horses on warmbloods for sale, I noticed almost none of the 4 year olds had great videos or anything to show a hunter type.

    I have seen some...
  13. Fair pricing versus inflated trainer pricing on a hunter type young horse?

    I have been reading all the recents threads about how most people prefer to go to Europe to look for young prospects.

    While I can see the pros of doing that, it does bring up the issues of why the...

    I don't clip my horses ears or whiskers. I show hunter/jumper and everyone just thinks I am a hillbilly. Sorry but my horses live out all day and if they didn't have whiskers they would be hurting...

    He hasn't grown in the last year, but I would think he would grow also! We will see.
