    I agree with cnm - it depends. My gelding used to get panicky about corrections/being asked to do things, and that has gone away where I could apply all the pressure I am capable of and he would just...

    Keep in mind some of the places suggested will have snow if you're going to be in AZ soon - sorry if I missed you saying the date. You can always go skiing in Flagstaff if you want, though! :D

    My horse #1 is that one "special" horse to me - whatever term you choose to use for it. I absolutely adore him and have a stronger connection with him than I have with any other horses, ever. I...

    I may well buy a weanling next, if I don't breed or find another young horse who seems just right.

    For me, it's being able to compare with other offspring of both sire and dam, performance history...

    We read all kinds of horror stories about trainers, but I think sometimes a good/great trainer is not the right fit at a certain time, and a change is necessary.

    When did you switch from a trainer...

    I had more than one answer, but answered bought on my own (I think) - which is true for my most recent purchase. With my OTTB, I intended to buy a horse 6 months later, but a combination of varoius...

    I have had a recent tendency to "reach for" my stirrups. That's the term my trainer uses for lack of a better term, but it's a tendency to behave as if I'm losing them when I'm not, which pops my...

    I will fully admit that the news coverage I heard of this was biased in her favor and I have not read the article nor statements from her employer.

    However, asking employees to care for someone...

    Not excessively short, and not thick - but short relative to her body, and therefore needing more freedom to use it.

    It was far too large for my horses, so instead I'm testing it on a mare at my trainer's. She's a large warmblood with a very WB sized head, and it fits her nicely. She also has eye problems where...

    My TB has a very long, thin neck - and my WB mare has a neck tending toward shorter than ideal but it is still naturally arched and she can easily come BTV. I SO much prefer that - I agree with the...

    I suspect this is a part of why partnerships take so long to develop. On top of the fact of course horses need to learn new riders, etc.

    It makes it even more impressive to me how well someone...
