    So I tried to focus on his shoulders today. Before I rode I tried several new forelimb stretches and did some massage on his neck and shoulders. He seemed quite irritated with all of it but I could...

    Good to know about the BoT products. I'll try for a longer period of time.

    I have tried stretching him before and after riding (without tack). His neck and back are VERY flexible- he can easily touch the back of his hip. Stretching seems to help very slightly but not any...

    I rode until about 4.5 months pregnant. I was feeling really great and had a super easy pregnancy up to that point. Then I went to a show and after a day of unpacking and warming up some horses (no...

    Also, regional standard has easier course requirements in terms of combinations. So, lower jumps than national standard and generally an easier track.

    Sorry, but I strongly disagree... Low level jumpers should have courses that are straight forward, simple and inviting. You should not have ridiculous turns, sharp bending lines, difficult...

    I call it the "high ch/ad jumper phenomenon"... Where those riders, who previously tore around the jumpers at Mach 3, now have to slow down or eat dirt. Most seem to choose to eat dirt.

    I ride young horses almost exclusively and I can't say how much I hate rubber/plastic mouth pieces- I really,really dislike them. They are generally bulky, give a "muddled" feeling on the reins (not...

    My oversized bridle came in and fit my 16.3h holsteiner mare pretty well. She is over 1500lbs and has a massive block head. The only part that was a little big was the brow band. I couldn't imagine...

    I've had some where I've made a good profit and some that I sell at a loss. Above all else, it HAS to have a good brain. Anything that is remotely difficult/complex/spooky, is a really tough sale....
