    Bill Steinkraus was known to say that the typical rider is not great at seeing distances. So instead of trying to pick spots, which may change from horse to horse as well as from course to course,...

    I use the Eartech system to teach. I've had mine since Christmas 2008. I did have a problem with one unit after a couple years and for a minor charge (under $20) Eartech fixed it. Still using today...

    Not to highjack, but as a dressage rider starting some small jumps (18") after over a decade doing dressage, I can't 2-point anymore! If I go between posting trot and 2-point, I either fall back...

    From what I've learned since one of our old school horses came down with cellulitis this summer, is that cellulitis is indicative of a weak immune system. Of course all horses can knick themselves,...

    Thanks BAC and others! Form Over Fences sounds good and as you said, used copies are cheap, so just completed my order. I do best when focusing on my posture and position while riding, something I...

    Best book/DVDs on jumping position?

    I am getting back into jumping as an older adult. I jumped in my late teens/early 20s, but know I didn't have a good trainer. More of a "ride by the seat of your pants" type teacher. After some...

    Steffen and Sharon Peters have 95% of their horses barefoot. So if shoes improved movement, I wouldn't think they'd have gone that route. My upper level dressage horse is barefoot and we are starting...

    From the ground, use a dressage whip to ask her to yield/step away from you. Try it on the easy side first, then go to the harder side. Tickle or tap her to get the stepping over response. Make a...

    In the late 90s I evented a couple years, then got into dressage big time and recently started schooling my upper level dressage horse over small fences (2') to improve his canter. I'm not a brave...

    Wow, I didn't know SmartPak had adhesive name plates. From the reviews (some not very good) it seems most people used them for trophies or wood picture frames, not leather. People are using the...

    OK, I've decided I'm going to get a helmet monogram and heat/affix it to my cantle.
  15. Alternative nameplates for saddle without nails/screws?

    Is there such a thing? Just got a new saddle and I want to ID it, but is there a way to do it without putting holes in the cantle?

    Jumping saddles have a forward placed stirrup bar (and flaps) to allow the rider to stay over the horse's center of gravity during a jump. The more the stirrup leathers are shortened, the more likely...

    Yes as in Earl Grey tea. My horse has a noble bearing with his 'slightly' roman nose. I wouldn't say he is flashy and extravagant, which is why I'm not going with "Outgraygeous". Though that is an...

    Thanks scubed. This will be a name for schooling shows only. If I do a USEA recognized show (HIGHLY doubtful), then I would use my horse's registered name. Show name is just for the "fun stuff"...

    Oooh, I like Quicksilver, but my laidback guy is anything but "quick". I guess no one else would know, but I'd feel a little dishonest!

    Believe me, his reg. foreign name, which consists of several vowels and one consonant would NOT be helpful :)
