    Everyone has already given some great flatwork suggestions, so I'll offer something a bit different - try breaking the cycle somewhat by taking him out hunting. I've hunted quite a few ottbs and...

    FWIW, here's a short vid of me schooling a 5 year old 1/4 Clydesdale, mother was a quarter horse, father is 1/2 Clyde, 1/2 unknown.
    He looks quite drafty to me, but he is so balanced and uphill he...

    Eh, the men look ok.

    Hate the long skirt with the blazer for the women, don't see how that will be flattering for anyone. Either the blazer needs to be shorter and more tailored, or the skirt...

    Wow, really? I'm 22, I shave under arms (every other day) and legs below the knee (if I'm wearing shorts somewhere other than the gas station lol). So I'll go a good 2-3 months without shaving my...

    I've also worked for an Olympic/4* rider in Europe (although I don't think his barn was on the same scale as the one Tuppy's daughter is at!), and I agree with most of this. Nearly every morning...

    Pretty much this!
    Depends on the individual horse.

    I have one that came off the track August 2011, first HT October 2011, first Prelim June 2012. So he went pretty fast.
    Others not so much.

    If you do them right, they kind of "snap" into place when you do the last pull through. Mine always stay really well for 3 days or so (sans neck cover), depending a bit on the mane. I've tried...

    Ha I was just impressed that they actually managed to show pictures/vids of true dressage horses for most of the skit! They snuck in a hunter at the end but other than that did pretty good lol.
