    Thanks for the tips! We will keep the cadence and I'll just keep slowly adding more bend as she gets stronger! We worked for a couple of months in very small increments asking her for this more...

    I am in training with a GP trainer who just saw her this week and she is very very happy with our improved trot work. In her opinion it's very natural that she can only do one or the other to start...
  5. Bend or power/rythym: Which is more important in a test?

    I know BOTH are equally important but my pony has just unlocked a new, very suspended beautiful trot this summer. It's powerful and cadenced and I'm over the moon! However, as she is still getting...

  10. Best additive for outdoor sand arena to cut down on watering

    We just finished leveling the sand in my dressage arena tonight (Yay!) and it's quite a distance from a water source. Not impossible but a boatload of hoses and work. What is the best additive (if...

    I have sporatic access to a trainer so I'm on my own most of the time. I found setting up a video camera on a tripod is invaluable. I tape at least every other ride then review. I also changed how...

    LOL Well now that's an idea!!!

    I guess I need to go back to refining my steering off of seat only to start. I can turn her off seat but not so accurately as to ride perfect figures or hit an exact...

    The Stanley Mobile trunk is a lifesaver! I can get almost everything into it but saddles! It locks and even has a removeable "brush box". Doubles as my chair. LOL...

    I ran him through some basic tests today and it's his thigh/stifle area that trembles primarily on his right hind. He can back up without getting stuck like a shivers horse and his leg didn't get...

    Had my non-mechanic inclined husband take a look and he said it sounds like it's the leaf springs making the noise. It's an older trailer and they are pretty old and rusty. Thinking he may be...

    Thank you!! I normally do cross my chains but just hooked them up to get them out of the way while I was putzing with this new hitch today. I had the trailer ball in an upright position before but...
