    Its a process....and filling those holes just takes time. I mentioned how I was pulling up half way around because of Me. That is 30 years riding experience. My horse was going GREAT. I was...

    Failure at the track though doesn't mean they wouldn't be a good sport horse. He is certainly a nice looking type.

    One of the best jumping horses that I ever knew or sat on (other than Gem...

    Not best Video...but this is my boy with this pedigree. He is a hair under 17 hands....and 4 years old. Still rebuilding up his muscle from racing.

    You can also get a concussed without hitting your head. If you are whipped around enough, your brain can bounce inside of your head enough to cause damage. So just because someone doesn't land on...

    Depends on the horse and rider. When I first upgraded....I was younger and fitter on a super jumping horse. He was an OTTB and had not done much when I got him. I took him from his first event to...

    Also....hippomundo is very lacking. I just punched in 4 different sires who I personally know have sired 3 and 4 star horses --some past and some currently competing (3 TB and one US WB) and no...

    If that bad....likely saddle fit. Or you are pinching with your knee.

    But riding more in your jump saddle..and doing more two point work will help too. Also work like double posting (up for...

    I avoid the turnpike like the plague. Bad trip every time I've gone that way.

    I-95 is not bad if you leave very early in the morning....which is the way everyone I know who ships horses go. But...

    Depends on when you are leaving. We go down 95 all the time but from Unionville you need to leave at 3-4am to avoid the worst of the traffic.

    I've gone the way suggested above too and it isn't...

    Must be the February one I was thinking of. Although many stallion owners will give you a good discount if you book very early. Not so much for Frozen but definitely for fresh.

    I'm pretty sure the ATA has a fall silent auction....you can sometimes get a good deal on stud fees on some nice horses.

    While I don't mind Storm Cat in a pedigree...I'm not sure I would say it is a line for "quiet". Personally...I don't want "quiet". I want smart and athletic and not screws loose. In fact, I...

    I have a family that does that at the walk whenever going downhill. Even a very slight downhill. I've seen it in three generation of this particular line.

    I'm pretty sure Hamiley is only available frozen this year. But I would check if that was your choice.

    Personally...I would try frozen with a maiden mare and have a fresh stallion picked out as...

    A clinic can be just as good exposure as a show for a green horse.....and often I get more out of a clinic with a green horse than a show.

    But it really is an individual thing. I've ridden...

    Pull blood. I'm in the same area and several of my horses need Vit E supplement.

    I suspect it it is a combination of factors. Probably both the horse needing to be in a regular program and...

    Again...nothing new.

    It is not a simple black and white issue. It really depends on the individual horse.

    Some horses lose confidence if they do not have traction. I often find I need to use...

    I wouldn't take that advice. It is BS. If you loved the horse that much...go for it.

    I hate it when people are advised to go sit on more horses. If you are smiling when on them, having...

    You are looking for a unicorn if that is all that bothered you on horse #2 and you are walking away (given your goals and price range).
