    I had one of these in my younger days although I don't know what he was like when he was first under saddle. He was given to me because the owner got bucked off every time she rode him. I'm afraid...

    Dressage training (non-competitive-I call it classical, so sue me) has done just what it is supposed to for my horses. It makes them more beautiful, fit, keeps them sound and a pleasure to ride.

    Not to get off the original post too much, I just have to say, pretty expensive trash. The good Dr. is doing a clinic in my area this fall and it's $250.00 a ride, per day. $40 just to audit. Of...

    Are these animal rights people going to take these horses home? Or the government officials? I live in a city that has carriage horses and every so often a well-meaning group decides to protest. ...

    Maybe if we called it "fast track dressage" and "old time dressage" instead of "competitive and classical"? There's no reason classical (a term which I like and use) can't show and win. In fact it...

    from Velvet: Pay attention to this.

    To quote myself, "You only post as high and as forward as the energy the horse provides through your seat." This says nothing about getting ejected by the...

    All of the things you mention could help. Does she drink enough water? You can add salt to her feed or water to help encourage that. TB's have a tendency toward ulcers and banamine can actually...

    Let's face it, if you are a top level professional in ANY DISCIPLINE you need to get the horses in the ring and winning quickly. One does not have the luxury of decades of training. You learn what...

    True. I saw KM preform capriole when he first came to the US with a shetland pony that had a natural talent for the movement.

    goeslikestink is right. Most young horses do this. Balance, fitness, practice + time.

    I agree with Dressage Art. Only my humble opinion. To me "classical" has always meant using time-tested, horse friendly, training. It means helping whatever horse one has to work with to the top of...

    If you can buy or borrow WAZ's "A Matter of Trust" video series I highly recommend that.

    I don't do a lot of showing but I have in the past shown in my Barefoot London. I don't think the judge even noticed it was a treeless. If your horse and yourself are more comfortable definately...

    Don't know if these are the same videos (don't have time to watch) but I found a series last year titled "An Evening with Carl Lester". Lots of good info.

    I love the brown too. I think it would look great on my chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail.

    I can't believe that all the long time riders and trainers here have never seen a horse go down from a too tight girth. There's a muscle or nerve or something (maybe a Vet will enlighten us) that...

    It's all been said in regard to PP, JL, MR, DR, CA, CC, etc. There is so much information out there I guess people have to grab on to one trainer and follow only them or their head might explode....
