    merrygoround, you are totally confused if you think I think that.

    If you can get your horse to understand round and flexible feels comfortable then you're home free ... some horses are natural, but most need the aids (bridle of some sort and legs and seat) to at...

    Winding Down, I think you missed the point entirely.

    To be clear here .... about the use of the word leverage relative to my post ...

    Even a snaffle bit gives leverage when you are discussing the lever action involving the neck, the poll and the...

    I would think as a counselor he might be subject to certain rules under the school's policies, if not his profession's policies. Confidence policy. Confidentiality sort of thing.

    I would consider...

    And there was a BIG difference between the military officers riding ... every one of those riders had gone through a complete training program .... horsemanship and riding, conditioning, lots of...

    XC Shows were called Field Hunters. Maybe they still are somewhere in the US. Ft. Wayne, Indiana had a gorgeous course. Other venues in the area had things with big fences that often were solid, 4'...

    Drop nosebands offer better control of the nose. Because the nose band sits much lower on the nasal cartilage the leverage is different. Also, as mentioned previously, it sits where there are no...

    I thought it was an excellent article, also. I never even gave it a thought because I've always preferred TBs or 7/8 TB for jumping, xc and dressage. Why. Because they are sensitive and I don't have...

    Then have a test covering the warm up arena.

    And we in the US don't have 'evidence' of anything because no one likes math or long term, consistent record keeping.

    Not positive, but I think the last few riders and horses that were killed brought the issue back to the forefront.

    Here are a couple of statistics quoted from the report posted by grayarabpony:

    beowulf ..... in answer to your snarky post that you edited ...

    Someone on COTH asked Leslie Stevenson if she even rode any more.

    What's my foray into the dressage forum got to do with it?...

    Well, since you are right in the middle of all these incredible people, perhaps you can get any number of them to explain why the US is the laughing stock of the international circuit :)

    What 'era' are we talking about here?

    And there are a lot of casualties that don't get discussed at all these days.

    Of course they all die sooner or later.

    Unfortunately we in the US haven't kept track of much, so there can't be any viable comparisons made based on reality.

    However, growing up in the era I...

    I find that hard to believe for a number of reasons.

    I've heard several BNTs from different disciplines (dressage, eventing and racing) say that horses lived much longer and stayed sounder much longer in 'the old days' and many of those were used at...

    Merrygoround, discussing 2 very different things here.

    There is a difference between hot blooded horses and cold blooded horses in how their nervous system works. Nervous system .... not muscular...

    TBs 'fire off' faster than non-TBs ... so I have always thought that 'effort' came far more easily to a TB. Nerves fire off faster ... nervous system is hot wired. Hot blooded.
  22. I've always thought that some horse are far...

    I've always thought that some horse are far sighted and some nearsighted .... that could make a mess of things.

    And sometimes a horse may have joint oddities that you cannot see, but it affects...

    Thank you for the explanation. I wondered about the photo myself, I just didn't say anything.

    Dorothy is a really nice rider. Great article.

    No ground line is considered very difficult for the horse.

    Ground lines SHOULD NOT BE ROLLING AROUND.
