    As for the "she didn't hit her head," we had a girl fall, and EVERYONE who witnessed the fall said she didn't hit her head. She landed on her butt, sitting. Well, she came back up to the barn, and...

    Bares repeating.

    I opted not to dig deep and tough it out and stuff my horse over a big, square faced corner one time. I think had I sat back and swatted him and got left, he would have gone...

    Kinda sounds like you all need to spend a lot of time just jumping lots of skinnies, angles, and such. They don't even have to be big. You may both need to get used to getting your eyes locked on to...

    The jump to prelim is a big one. Don't be too hard on yourself. I don't think, even with level creep, there's any good way of REALLY preparing for the xc without just going and doing it.

    My VERY...

    Hahahaha!!!! I had an open fracture (though not a horrifically gory one)....I lounged in the ER for HOURS. I got there around 1 or so, didn't go into surgery until 7ish. They don't move fast unless...

    Everyone grieves differently. When I very suddenly and unexpectedly lost my much beloved dog that I'd had all through my teen years and into adulthood, I was CRUSHED. I couldn't imagine life without...

    I don't see how this even possible!

    Also, geez, when I got the ambulance ride to the ER after breaking my leg, both the EMTs and the hospital staff at least ASKED before they cut anything off of...

    I'd buy a whole lot less.

    As I step further and further back from the horse world and have started purging my copious collection of horse gear, I realize how much I bought for my personal horses...

    My older dog requires a bit of encouragement to get going on our walks right now. This is the first year I've ever really noticed her not digging the heat (she HATES to cold...she is part reptile...

    1) A lovely horse with a lot of talent but kept straining front tendons. We tried everything available to us, but finally gave up and kicked him out for the better part of a year. Came back well, and...

    Thanks, Malcolm! Thought I had gone crazy. I haven't competed in. Few years, but I still try to keep up, more or less. I knew I had heard that rule had been approved....didn't realize it didn't get...

    First, if you are riding training and below, jackets are not mandatory, period. At least, that is how I understand it now.

    Second, those stand up mock neck shirts are not a problem as far as I...

    HA! Nope. She's got things to hunt. And probably afraid she's missing something since her big "sister" walks off leash and pretty much has free range, as long as we go in the same general direction...

    Great suggestions! I wish something easier was as high value as the damn hot dogs. i can keep liver bits with leashes and grab and go as needed...they also don't get really funky and greasy on an...

    She sits in front of me, facing away. She doesn't go to a finish/heel position. She knows I like her to sit....but she sits in the wrong direction!

    She has picked up on big dog's more conversational commands, including "this way" and "out of the road!" She's smart and she WANTS to please....but OMG the world is so interesting. We touched on...

    Meh...she's weird about treats. Sometimes she'll do ANYTHING for one. Sometimes she refuses them. Usually when life is very interesting. We've played with different treats and, short of hot dogs...
  18. Dog training question: finishing a recall

    So, my little long dog Rita did a basic obedience class and was a little smarty pants/teacher's pet. It was all pretty basic stuff, and we only touched on sitting in front of me when she comes. So,...

    One other one. If it isn't right, don't force it. I've both forced it and also opted not to. I never regret not forcing it. The last time I opted to save it for another day, I pulled up after two...

    I once walked the wrong fence (though, to this day, 12 years on, I STILL say it was flagged as the training question the night I walked it!). I was in a rush, trying to get to a dinner obligation the...

    I can easily spend 45 minutes grooming, though typically I am about 15-20 minutes. But it doesn't take much for me to get to that 45 minute mark. My horse isn't a fan of grooming (or, at least,...

    I have three really nice bridles (for the price I'm willing to spend). One is a Five Star and the other two are Wellfleet. I actually prefer the Wellfleets to the Five Star, as they both have just...

    Not at all that uncommon, especially for a young or green horse, particularly if they tend toward the sensitive or dramatic side. It stings a bit when they knock a rail and they act as if the world...
