    So I've looked at a couple barns and still haven't really found what I'm looking for. Allan & Clover is a bit further than I was hoping to be, but is certainly closer than my current barn! He really...

    Update

    It has been nearly 2 weeks now, and he is looking quite a bit better. I have been keeping him in during the days and out at night. The lump is "squishy" now, rather than like a hard knot, which I...

    Possible Splint ?

    My 15 YO Holsteiner cross has been working amazingly with no issues at all for quite some time. He is on Adequan and sometimes warms up a little stiff in his left hind, but has been super sound for...

    Thanks! Yeah, I have been spreading the word through farriers and trainers, I didn't think of the SWDEA website, that's a great idea!
  8. Where are People Advertising Boarding Space?

    My farm where I board is currently just me and one horse owned by the barn owners. Since I have been there, the owners have decided they wouldn't mind having a few other boarders and would give me a...
  9. Recommendations on Children's Boots

    I also posted on this in the H/J forum, but I am a dressage rider, I just assumed they probably had more parents/trainers of young children. I am giving an 11 year old dressage lessons and her mother...

    I currently give lessons to an 11 year old and her mother has asked me for recommendations for boots for her. Something durable and reasonably priced. I think because of her large, growing feet, and...

    She is on the lunge in the round pen. I want her comfortably balanced at the trot before she has to worry about reins. I doubt he would, but riding around in the open, my horse could pick up the trot...

    Where is the video? I can't find it. I second the long and low riding though, I had a mare like this and you just need to get her loose. I'd love to see the video though, to see if it really is the...

    So I am trying to teach her to post the trot. We have had 3 or 4 sessions with minimal trotting because she is a little scared. How can I help her to be able to post? How long should it take? I...

    I just want to give her some background. For me, the diagram with the lines indicating proper alignment for the seat was a real epiphany. She is absolutely ecstatic to be riding, so I think she would...
