I think they are frowned upon because they tend to cause more problems than they avert. I would recommend going without them and see how it goes.
I would also strongly recommend doing plenty of...
It would appear that the only thing you believe you can do is continue as you were when you started the thread. For me at least, and maybe others, that makes this a disappointing thread.
Palm Beach provided a perfect description of an effective technique that got the desired result without upsetting the horse. I'd bet that the next time she encounters a similar obstacle, she'll get...
"This particularly applies to those made from wood such as Country Manufacturing, Newer Spreader, etc. Urine, manure and bedding are simply too corrosive. The only compact spreaders built...
There are so many possibilities between "back off" and "beat him."
If you want to change your approach (I sense that you do not), perhaps you can find a good professional to help. A...
I think I'd want rads. If I am understanding you, "upper jaw" means the lower end of his skull, in the palate area, which is also close to the airway.
If it's a hairline fracture with no issue of...
I assume you remember Snowford Bellman from when we visited together so many years ago.
Of course I know nothing about performance, but I certainly remember the horse.
Quick Reply (LOL) that's what it says on the button I'm about to push!
Quoth the Raven
I have one of these
and I love it. Trouble free and SIMPLE.
Used daily to clean eight stalls. I've had it for over a decade. Reliable and...
"As stated, when HE decides to do this, i have no way to get him to move forward."
This is what you need to work on "when he is good." You need more tools in your toolkit, NONE of which should be...
Yeah, I figured I'd better stop after that one . . . LOL!
Also be sure to anchor the bottom from side-to-side. I recently had an itchy horse decide to shoulder-swipe the partition repeatedly and he managed to loosen the fasteners holding the channel in...
Air horse is correct.
You should be able to do a one-rein stop and keep him from backing into people. If he moves his haunches away from the bend, fine. Wait for him to fully stop before...
When no room to circle, find a way to direct his feet within the space available. For instance, displace his haunches right and/or left, move his shoulders right and/or left, make it clear to him...

The swelling is left front? Head bob looks like right front, unless my video got flipped somehow.
Agree with Feliz. I'd be thinking vet with ultrasound at this point.
Soft, relaxed and apparently happy horse. What a breath of fresh air!
A few questions -
Does the ring have a fence?
How is the tractor's turning radius relative to the width of the ring?
How deep is the footing above the base?
Does the tractor have an FEL?
. . . and you can call him Errol!
Yes. Aren't we lucky?!
Yep - tractor with FEL,4WD, power steering, probably 40hp PTO depending how much mowing you will be doing. Kubotas have been reliable for me, but dc is correct about finding a really first-rate...
Or shorten that to "Storm the Castle"
I haven't read the whole thread, so don't know what's been suggested already, but . . .
My InvisibleFence is installed adjacent to a 3-board fence most of the way around the yard and has worked for many dogs. Completely following the training program has worked for me even including...
