    I follow a lot of endurance riders and many of them believe in heat training, especially for 100 mile rides such as Tevis next week. They exercise in the heat of the day, sometimes with the horse...

    When I bought my mare last year she didn't have a good work ethic and she'd get very balky/rear/back up in the arena when she thought she was done working, or when she didn't want to go to the far...

    It isn't my responsibility as a mare owner to check for balls when I enter a warm up arena. I apply the same common courtesy to stallions that I do geldings and other mares. I don't think that a...

    I picked up my exotic shorthair meezer from the local high volume shelter. I thought he was beautiful, and nobody would look at him because of the siamese rep for being noisy and aloof. I spent...

    I drive in the night before to set up and school and then I actually drive back home. 2 of my show grounds are 45 minutes - 1 hour away so it's not bad and it actually saves time in the AM since I...

    First, I don't see a problem with a rider schooling third while they are showing 2nd. Even if they are still struggling with some of the 2nd level movements. Some horses have a difficult time with...

    Quitting halfway through a round when the horse is being gate sour is the absolute worst thing you could possible do.

    The horse had no issue with the jumps, but being in the ring without its...

    That mare was sour from the second she walked into the ring. You can even see the whip down at the flank in case she needed it to get into the ring. There's a difference between "relaxed" and "I'd...

    Have you gone trail riding with an experienced horse? I find that helps a lot and I put the green horse in front, letting the experienced horse take over when the green horse balks.

    He should be more than fit enough by now to add trotting into your program, unless he has a specific injury that requires nothing but walking or your footing discourages it.

    Are you saying that his property surrounds yours? Or is on both sides of yours?

    Could he have just been surveying where his own property is? Trying to resolve a property line dispute?

    A barefoot horse in work needs to be done every 5 to 6 weeks. A retired horse would be fine every 8 to 12. My farrier sometimes sends horses away, especially in the winter.
