    Sounds like a horse that might be able to be a jumper.

    Not being suitable and happening to be a certain breed does not equal breed discrimination. It means it's a horse that is unsuitable for...

    It's hardly limited to Facebook. You're a regular reader of this forum, it's a regular occurrence here as well, as you know.

    Mob mentality is prolific on the internet.

    My bolding for emphasis. Am I understanding correctly that it takes you up to 45 minutes before you can get any productive work done with this horse? If that's correct, then you need to change up...

    When I did it, my entry fee was paid for (and I usually catchrode a horse for it, but that's not always the case). That's it.

    Why is he eating Complete? That's a high performance sweet-feedy food. That gives horses a lot of energy; there's a reason that it's used a lot by eventers and jumper riders.

    Yes.

    As MHM said, the splints won't help, but I've been told that "man-made" flaws like splints are not penalized as harshly as something they're born with. Whether that's true or not, I wouldn't...

    I don't have any personal experience with doing them, but my horse did them pretty successfully before I got her. She is nicely put together, but is long-backed and has a bowed tendon. It didn't...

    I love, love, love Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. I grew up with them, and once DH and I are at a point where our lives are more settled, we'll be looking into getting one.

    Totally agree!! If your saddle fits so badly that you need a thick memory foam half pad, perhaps you should save the hundreds of dollars on the pad and get a saddle that's properly fitted.
