    What breed of horse and what is the gait? There are a number of "gaited" types with mechanically different ways of going.

    For a slow gait or rack, you actually want to do the opposite--raise the...

    When I started learning dressage, I was surprised that cantering from a walk was a higher-level transition!! It always seem a lot easier to canter from a stop or a walk than from the trot...and,...

    The most highly titled Barn Hunt dog is a GSD and I see a lot of GSDs and Mals that are excellent hunters. Not sure how that translates to a real, live farm though.

    Yes THIS!!

    I share my life with a SS show horse and an eventer. I love both disciplines (much newer to the eventing side) and find that the combination gives me a sort of "cross-training" that...

    In saddleseat, the idea of "contact" is much different than in sporthorse land. The shanks are longer, but the horse isn't on the bit as in dressage. So, aside from whether longer shanks are or are...

    Thanks for the feedback and ideas. Sounds like there isn't really a good option out there, but there are some better ones.

  9. cold weather is coming... thoughts on turnout blankets for high-headed breeds?

    I know I'm not alone in my frustration... I have a saddlebred gelding that has a very tradtional ASB build--long neck, sloped shoulder and high natural head carriage. Finding a good heavy turnout...

    For flea prevention, try a natural treatment with cedar oil. I'm dealing with health issues with one of my dogs and I've been using a spray-on treatment for my two. So far (knock on wood) it seems to...

    Sounds like she's had almost zero work--so why not work her long and low to strengthen her back first? You can use that strength for any discipline including SS if she starts to show some promise....

    Agree that there are probably mulitple levers to "pull" in order fix your problem, but I'm all about tools too. I have a saddlebred that, by nature, wants to put his head in the air, so bringing him...

    I introduced my mini schnauzers to barn hunt last year, but just trialing with one. I think the interesting aspect as we've moved up the levels is to balance how much I "help" him vs. standing back...

    A breakover, properly done, is stretched. The tail is cut, put in a set, and then the tail is very gradually stretched to form a breakover. Dislocating or breaking a joint would permantly damage the...

    The words in blue/bold are the ones to which I have an objection. It perpetuates a damaging and completely false perception about saddlebred tail. NO tail is EVER fractured or dislocated when a tail...
