There are a lot of small statured horses on the stallion's side. If, as you say, the mare produces "like" the sire, you may have less height than previously. But a tough, stout horse could be a...
Years ago, I went trail riding (with my cell phone) while my husband was in brain surgery. Our neighbor was one of the Recovery Room nurses and she kept me posted. I was there with him when he woke...
For a calf-roping horse:
I will second STA's suggestion of Old Dominion.
"Cowboy training is the very antithesis of dressage training."
This is an over-generalization. If you're interested, there's some great reading out there that will show you...
Drove it in May with a lightly loaded (stuff, not horses) two horse bumper pull. No problem. Overnighted in Laramie headed east, so must have done Cheyenne in the morning.
Why not put the baling twine at the snap end rather than the eye bolt? I always figured the crosstie would fly back and hit someone/thing if the eye bolt end came loose.
Another pony-with-no-withers rider here - I have found that in addition to the things mentioned above, a string girth helps A LOT. I haven't tried neoprene but I have definitely found that any...
Neverending Road is great! If you can get that, I would.
Sorry, I couldn't resist :-)
I've done that square halt exercise too. Not easy, but it does tune up the feel!
Then, when I'm doing something like opening/closing a gate or the like, with the horse standing...
If the ammie really wants to feel footfalls and to ride accordingly, (s)he can. Ultimately it's the horse that will "teach" you the timing, but you have to learn the horse's...
The extensor tendon crosses the front of the cannon bone. Is it slick or deep at your place?
Does it itch? One of mine had a puncture wound that took weeks to heal and I kept catching him trying to scratch it, usually opening it up in the process. If so, you can put on some hydrocortisone...
How about a hose clamp? You might want to put a piece of rubber (like from an inner tube) between the hose and the clamp since the clamp is metal.
I am thinking of the "worm gear" type that is...
I'd stay with Sky Lake if he were mine, BUT if you must:
... and on and on ...
I am pleased that you are pointing out some of the critical system design issues related to horse microchipping. I am a breeder as well as an occasional show participant and I am...
Western Horseman and Eclectic Horseman.
Does the NYC Police Dept. have a mounted unit? I suppose they will disband that also, since the horses should not be on the streets with automobiles and so forth, right?
Did you understand what netg was trying to say? Assuming this OTTB is off an American flat track, he has spent his whole life galloping around curves to the left and then switching to his right lead...
You need to find a competent and patient vet to explain the syndrome, the appropriate treatment and best practices to avoid a recurrence. DO NOT TAKE ANY LAYPERSON's word for any of this (me...
I like "Brickyard" for a chestnut horse too.
An elevator bit and a Baucher have totally different actions. The elevator has a gag action, thus puts most pressure on the (upper) corners of the horse's mouth/lips. The Baucher puts poll pressure...
I got two liver chestnuts (full siblings) from a bay mare and a bay-gone-grey stallion. The second one started lighter and has darkened every year. I did not know chestnuts did this.
This bit is sometimes referred to as a "three-in-one" in the US. You might search on that label also.
Middleburg Tack Exchange could have used ones, or might be able to find one in a customer's...
