    If the horse really is just being disobedient (my Arab was the king of this!), then just ignore the behavior. Keep riding and pretend that the diversion never happened. Eventually, he will learn that...

    If you use the outside leg behind the girth to push the horse's hip over before asking for a canter depart/lead change, it really doesn't matter what you do with your hands.

    When I lived in Lexington, I rode with Sarah Meier at Punchestown Stables. She remains, to this day, one of the most professional horsemen I have ever dealt with. The farm now has an indoor (didn't...

    Every semester, the most difficult lab exercise for my students is the one where we balance rations. Why? Because they have NO basic math skills. I will say, "A horse requires a minimum of 1% of its...

    My coworkers and I get to pay $20 a head for the privilege of attending our holiday party (and we're also asked to chip in for the DJ on top of that)...no free food on the University's dime! It's...

    My TPMS is possessed. It was on for over six weeks this fall. I checked my tire pressure in all four tires (the spare is not monitored) every day, and every day all four tires read 32-33 psi. I...

    No offense taken! The only way to learn is to do research. Since my salary is a matter of public record (I'm considered a government employee) - and is actually published on a local website - I have...

    I think one of the worst pieces of advice ever given to my generation and those younger than me was/is, "Chase your dreams. You can be and do anything you want. Don't settle for anything less than...

    I am a Lecturer in an Animal Science department. We have 537 students in our department, about 85% of whom are pre-vet. Believe me when I say that you are not alone in how you are feeling at...

    Being single in your late 20s/early 30s is torturous for this very reason. I have plenty of "friends" in my life - but I am literally THE. ONLY. SINGLE. PERSON. I know in a city of 180,000+ who isn't...

    What about affordable over-the-range models? Mine no longer heats up, which is kind of the entire point of a microwave...I started price checking on Lowes.com and nearly had a stroke. Holy cow! $300+...

    If you truly believe that, then you are delusional. I have had FAR worse wrecks in a Western saddle than an English one. All of my broken bones came while riding Western, not English. Why? Because...

    Standing stretches? No problem. Getting on the floor of a work/public bathroom? A bit of a problem. I think, from the description you've given, that you are fine.
