    I would never have been able to work on it with my horse in an arena, because you had to have that odd, scary whatever to get him to stop and look. We're talking one thing in 15 miles. Some things...

    Obviously, there are differing schools of thought. You just have to choose which type of rider/horse/relationship you want and proceed that way. I'll just say I have really willing, happy,...

    I'd wait him out for a bit. I think as you develop a relationship, that will dwindle.

    If he were just being a pain in the butt, it'd be different. I react differently with a willing horse who is...

    How long does he stand and look before he will move forward? If you don't pressure, he just stands still?

    My choice to avoid surgery wasn't financially motivated at all. I'm managing several old horses and dogs, and I spend what needs to be spent. I have thousands of vet costs on this dog. I chose...

    I think giving him a minute to look is your best response at this point. Now, if he is still standing in 15 minutes, you'll have to rethink that plan.

    My Jet is about 24, and she is happy to still be on the go. It's not problem free - she's had her hocks injected 3x this year, is on Pentosan, but she still is forward and happy on the trails. She...

    Does he back when you push him forward, or just on his own? My Friesian Sport Horse will back if pushed hard when something concerns him, but if allowed to just stop and look, he will move forward...

    My aussie tore hers at 11. The vet suggested surgery, but she doesn't handle confinement well, emotionally, and had some medical issues that made me really want to avoid surgery. We did limited...

    I used RoadID today. It worked perfectly and alerted my husband and son when I stopped too long at the lake. It was pretty great - nice feeling of security while riding solo.

    I love my pond. There is no increase in bugs around it, but it is full of frogs and fish.

    The horses enjoy it.

    I don't see a downside. Mine is spring fed though.

    I use Freedom 45, which is the same I think. It helps some with flies, eliminates ticks. Each subsequent dose works a bit better, I think.

    We still have flies, just less. I did apply to some...

    I've also had better luck with the alpha. They don't really have to defend their position, so it goes easier. Some fussing, chasing is to be expected. Real kicks - not just gestures, but landing...

    If you are balanced and strong in your core, that is probably the case. If you rely on the saddle for balance, it probably wouldn't feel that way.

    You make a good point. A treeless rider has to be centered and balanced independently. If you rely on your saddle to do those things, treeless is probably not for you. Of course, I'd say that if...

    So, if I put a bit in my horse's mouth upside down, the problem is with the bit? If I use a rope to tie a saddle to my horse, and it slips, the saddle is at fault? You are making zero sense. If...
