I have one! For the low-level weenie :)
It took me a minute to realize this thread was mine bumped from early last year!
FYI, on my last test, after I've been making an effort to not let him totally dive down and to maintain connection...
Hee, good times. And yeah, I really can't say enough good things about Doug. Even though Ollie was being a dickhead for me and DFP that weekend, the instruction was really, really helpful. And all of...
(And of course it's pretty easy to find/spot my tailless wonder mammoth/yak cross.
That would be so much fun!! Let's do it. I'll be stabling with Felicia Abbott.
That was fun to watch!
Ha! No one ever seems to video me on xc... Probably because we alternate fom OMG BORING MOLASSES to OMG DOES SHE NEED HELP?
But I'm gonna figure out a helmet cam for Holly Hill later this month....
Ha, thanks! I'm just doing starter for this go-round. It's my first three phase in a year, Ollie's been having.... Control issues... And I've had ball shrinkage. This is my "get the mojo back with...
Anyone want to watch me throw up at my first recognized show?
I saw in my blog admin today that someone found my blog via this post.... so I thought I'd bump for your collective enjoyment. :lol:

FWIW, my mom and stepfather live in Texas. I live in the Dallas area now. I am married to an ambiguously brown Turkish man who grew up in a Muslim family, though he's not practicing now.

And before XC? AC/Dc- Big Balls. YEAH.
Southern Democrat, duh. But that's part of the anger-inducing stuff ;)
"My 10-year-old Democrat Parelli trainer said that he wants to start incorporating Rollkur, but he's been too distracted by his protests against gay marriage to notice that his 'rollkur manual' was...
WELL YOUR MOTHER'S A HAMSTER.
Lol. I also had an ornery husband who wanted to get the heck out of there and couldn't understand why I was cackling.
Apparently you need a LOT of equipment for solo canoeing.:lol:
I sadly did not purchase it. It smelled like cat pee. :lol:
I found this in an antiques store in Broken Bow, OK. I died.
And god knows I could use more training. :lol::yes:
Oh, and I still plan on riding him for our dressage rides in our single-jointed full-cheek snaffle, as he tends to not piss off for that. I'll only use this for jumping days 1-2 times per week.
Yeah, we talked last night about me adding a second rein. I wanted the initial Come to Jesus conversation with him and then to see how well it was going to work. And work it did!
This is the one I used: http://www.doversaddlery.com/rubber-gag/p/X1-01188/
I hope it works for you! Yeah, it's mostly jumping when Ollie's a snot. His dressage has been so so so much better lately, but he still doesn't react quickly or lightly.
Funny that I also got to...
My former trainer's OTTB is in his mid-20s and was an upper level horse with her (can't remember if I or A..) He will still happily take students novice and school even bigger, last I heard. And he...
