    For gods sake, I wish people would just list the true height of a horse! If its 15.1, say its 15.1, not 16h.

    As someone looking for smaller horses, its really discouraging to filter for under...

    I voted for She's A Diamond,

    Or how about - "Girls Best Friend" ala Marilyn Monroe.

    I personally feel some empathy for the OP's student. Being older means we become a lot more aware of both our slower physical reactions and reduced ability for our bodies to heal.

    Maybe its time to call in the local video spies - put it out there on uTube with names and let JQ public do the dirty work for you.

    It won't hurt to talk to the owners and if they're amenable to the idea, check the place out further to see if its feasible.

    In such a situation, I'd insist on having the following at a minimum:

    Blushing to admit I am the classic Identity Crisis, Matchy Matchy, and Horse with Potential. :D

    There should be one for the "Nutrition/Supplement Obsesser".

    Crap - I can't get RFD tv from my cable provider. Is there a way to get it on the net?

    Nevermind - found the link to subscribe.

    Hugs to you OP. I know what its like to have a lot of emotion invested in a horse. Most all of us have gone through times when we have to do the thorough 'soul searching' process, then accept what...

    I've kind of gotten into the habit of popping on my helmet before I start grooming any horse if they look at all excited on anything.

    I'm taking in a retiree to keep Rico company when he comes...

    OP - glad you are OK.

    My usual refrain:

    "Measuring your happiness by someone else's standards will always result in misery".

    The best thing horses have to teach us is how to live in the moment. Enjoy your horse...

    My name is Rico and I prefer the element of surprise, so I pretend to be quiet and well behaved and then do something wild and dangerous every 3 months or so just to keep them on their toes.

    I...

    I have fallen because of ineptness, and when I did, I'd say, "I fell."

    I have also been deliberately dumped. Only once by Rico, but several times by Trav. And the difference between falling and...

    I've had only 2 at home for almost 10 years. Rico has been on his own for a month twice in that time. He calls and is hyper vigilant, but otherwise, he seems to settle nicely.

    Inky is horrible....

    2nd the Amish if you can find one. The one who built ours is no longer doing that, but there are some around who still do.

    And definitely talk to South Breeze. We're boarding there, the barn...

    Mine has been letting me get away with it when I drop off hay at night, there is no one there riding, and horses aren't being moved around, but I don't plan on bringing him anymore. He normally...

    IMO, mostly as a volunteer for PVDA, the people range from outwardly friendly to cold. But I agree, the most noticeable difference is the level of quietness of the riders, trainers, and spectators. ...

    Learning to jump was one of those things on the bucket list, and I really enjoyed it, especially since I stumbled onto a fantastic trainer right out of the gate.

    First, make sure the bridle and bit are adjusted properly, her teeth are OK, and that you're not doing up the noseband too tight.

    If all that checks out OK, start the usual de-sensitation...

    I'd say its a horse that will cooperate in most conditions, and will pretty much let you know if its not able to do what you're asking without deliberately trying to kill you. Usually, disobedience...
