    Dear Cat 1: Why must you parade around with my (CLEAN) bras and panties in your mouth? I'm tired of having to hunt for my unmentionables or worse, chase you down for them.

    This is what I'm doing right now. I'm taking as many lessons as I can on schoolmasters, but am also squirreling money away for a VNH (very nice horse) :)

    I post infrequently on both boards. I was more inclined to post pics and participate in conversations OTB, but after the new moderation, it seems like threads are overtaken by a few posters that have...

    ^ I agree, steer clear of this one. Slick website, but the riding speaks for itself. Have not been impressed with him. Definitely not of the same caliber of others that have been named on this thread.

    I've transitioned 2 horses to the double. One was a very opinionated chestnut mare, the other, a pretty laid back gelding. Both acted like it was just a normal day.

    When you introduce the double,...

    Agree with Rizzodm and AbbieS. I'd stay at training level until you sort out your seat. Also, remember that at this level, lengthenings are developed. You appear to be "gunning" her out of the...

    Second vote for Paul. Also, Paul's former working student is in Clinton Corners, NY. But that may be too far. Axioma Dressage, Andrea Meoak.

    I didn't see a ton of difference in how the hind was used. I definitely don't look at it and think "stabby". There are good points about the tempo being more steady because of the draw reins keeping...

    Agree with Alto. I would not waste time/money on getting a PPE done on a horse that comes with a "too much arthritis" description.

    That being said, maybe this will help in terms of test ride to...
