    A basic spreadsheet or database app should work fine. Just create the fields you want and voila! They are searchable and sortable and often bundled with your basic system software. Don't know...

    The "cathedral ceiling" does create a place for the hot air to go in the summer. If you put in a eave vents, it will actually create a tiny bit of airflow. Mine is considerably taller for other...

    Rider is lucky horse stayed put - this is one reason not to stand directly in front of a horse!

    Yes, the horse's face is priceless.

    I have a homebred that's done this his whole life - perfectly sound. I made him a "whoopee cushion" and hung it on the wall where he "sits." This keeps his tail from getting crushed, which was a...

    If I recall correctly, Clinton is "close" to Gang Ranch, isn't it? I did a Ray Hunt clinic there a few years ago (and he did them there for years) so I know that there are some very good cowboys out...

    I bought a small 2-wheel drive ATV to harrow my round pen (tractor would not fit in there) and it really did not do the job ultimately. Yes, you do need 4-wheel drive and I have to say that the...

    OP:

    Extra bonus to the jolly ball is that it "hisses" when she leans on it (little hole in ball to let off pressure as designed). Might worry pony just enough.

    BTW, I do agree with other...

    I have a little mare that does something similar. I hung a "jolly ball" at the point on the wall that she "whacks" and she has drastically cut back. If it was a big issue, I think I would hang a...

    I have two - both purchased used - and I love them. They fit several different horses very well and they are comfortable for hours and hours of fox hunting.

    My pony apparently has an allergy to copper. Once I stopped using bits with any copper in the alloy, the problem went away. Relevant?????

    [QUOTE=AllWeatherGal;8047507]Uhh ... yep. That's what I'm doing. I like the quiet time to test my understanding, but ...what I'd like is to hear from people about what helps them, when, for example,...

    Use the lesson time to learn what "right" or "better" feels like to you and to observe how the horse feels at those times also. Then when you're schooling at home, guide yourself by feeling how the...

    I have some "short" gates that I inherited when I bought the place. From what I can tell, the previous owner hacksawed off the bottom rung or two. It seems to work okay.

    Lester Buckley is scheduled for a clinic in Santa Rosa this summer. I strongly recommend him. Full disclosure: I am the organizer of his east coast clinics (no financial interest in them,...

    "very clear, never lose their seat, and never get emotional"

    We agree - that's a good description of a skillful trainer, too!

    "SR/surcingle are crucial to a young horse's understanding and learning of contact and yielding to pressure"

    Really? I daresay a skillful trainer can teach those things without longeing. Not to...

    How tall is he and what do you estimate him to weigh?

    Thoroughbreds mature faster than warmbloods in general but may look less mature because of the differences in build between the breeds. While...

    Ivory's in Hesperia, CA. Have used them for years and am very satisfied. They also repair and recondition clippers.

    Not affiliated in any way; just a happy customer.

    If the horse will tolerate them, the "Lende"-style shipping boots are excellent. They go on and off really fast and they are not hot.

    Some horses don't like the hinds and will kick more. ...

    You are doing what I would do, BUT I have had things that looked like that and turned out to be "whacks." They resolve much faster than either of the other possibilities you have discussed. Xray...
