    I had a horse get her eye frozen to a water tank in winter. It was pretty gross and required considerable care. She managed to regain some of her vision though.

    I have no idea how it happened.

    So stupid.

    Are scarves illegal too? Jackets with high collars pulled up against a wind? Must really suck to go skiining in France...

    Halloween costumes must be really boring too.

    Actually...

    I agree that you are doing the right thing with sticking to your schedule.

    I also agree that you could consider other activities when the child doesn't have help taking up. When I taught young...

    I am also interested in mand_asbfan's question. How noticeable is a cut tail when it is not set? I ask because my neighbour shows ASBs at a high level barn, yet her horses (when they come home for...

    the problem with using the Equine Canada page is that they only show horses that have a valid sports license, so if the person didn't show Gold level this year, they may not have renewed their sport...

    She actually seems happier jumping the spooky fence vs going past it. Maybe it empowers her. Yesterday I had a spooky cross pole we had to canter past to get to a different jump, and every time she...

    I think up here it is illegal to burn manure piles, so you might want to check if that is even an allowable option. I remember a barn I used to ride at would get in trouble because their giant pile...

    Making progress

    I jumped her again today, and no rushing from the spooky jumps...just over jumped them...so ignoring the rush last week was the right thing.

    Only issue I had with her running away from jump was...

    One thing to remember is that AQHA rules are written with an expectation that the horses will all be somewhat decent. At an open show, you can have horses all over the map, and most organizers won't...

    Just make sure your bit is "legal" by checking out the USEF rule book, and that your saddle pad is an acceptable colour...otherwise a typical snaffle bridle and your saddle will be fine!

    You will...

    One of my (adult) students is in "Cheer" and has been for years. Very competitive and teambuilding. They went to "worlds" this year and had a blast! I think it is better than gymnastics as it is a...

    Not sure if anyone mentioned it already, but there was a really good article in National Geopgraphic on the link between lower income and obesity/unhealthy eating.

    I have not, but a long time ago my trainer bought an OTTB with a giant knee chip. he needed a long time off, but was ok and went on to be competitive at low levels (I don't think the knee limited...

    Nobody ever mentioned an exact measurement to me, and I have never really thought if it that way.

    To me, the "perfect" spot depends on the horse, the type of jump, and hunter vs jumper.

    So he wants to take off from his left lead, but is fine landing on his right? I would guess soreness behind (right hind?)...or that you are doing something that makes him think he should swap?

    Yes, I think it is fair to tell a client that their budget is unreasonable. Mine was $2500 new or used, leather or synthetic, which I thought was reasonable.

    Maybe your backpack had the smell of another dog on it? Don't they pee over other pee to cover the other dogs scent?

    Some saddles are really sitting unfriendly too, so it could be your saddle isn't helping! How are you at sitting the trot?
