Okay, obvious question not yet asked/answered:
What is your canter cue?
And also, I don't think you said whether you have a walk-canter or just trot-canter.
What does the left-lead canter...
I concur with OveroHunter and with SuzieQ. Work on getting and keeping the proper positioning for her to get the lead successfully. If you don't allow her to change her body to the "wrong" shape...
Sheepskin. They have beautiful whole skins, long haired, short haired, various colors. I had a spectacular saddle pad made when I got home.
If that's not your thing, almost anything else you can...
Given what you said about the condition and the plans to bring it back to life, how about Renaissance Equestrian? Or Renaissance Horse Center?
Are you sure that the chiropractor/massage person checked the deep pectoral area? I have a horse that was lame because of pulling deep pect. playing in the field. I imagine that an old injury in...
My Horses My Teachers
Think Harmony with Horses
Both address the mental game in (to me and my horses) meaningful ways.
If you really want to know, you can send some mane hairs to UC Davis and run a test for the grey gene. It's easy, quick and not particularly expensive (about $40 I think).
I think a neatly pulled mane goes better with a polo shirt than a braided mane.
Fordtraktor: You are both bitless AND saddleless in the second photo, no?
" . . .not moving my core" sounds like a problem to me. Following is important throughout your body.
I probably wouldn't use the word "nuance," but we're just joshin', right?
Seriously OP, Wendy does some interesting work and the word I used was "enjoy," not "educate." Her work might complement...
"Very few of us are in a position to refer a regional GP champion like that trainer to a specific book for her edification."
Just lucky I guess.:lol::lol:
I'd say independent is much more secure specifically BECAUSE it is balanced and centered. Gravity is flowing through the body with no blockages so the weight is more "down."
Take a look at...
The Albright's hardware is very nice and seems "old-time" to me (and I'm pretty old!). In fact I still have a good halter from the 60s and the hardware is very similar.
Another BIG vote for Albright's. Their halter plates are a major cut above too! I have cob-sized horses. Some wear size 4 some wear 3. They will be very helpful on the phone so you order...
I have these:
Both are "brass colored" and heavy. ...
I used minocycline for two of my ponies. Both ate the pills with their grain. No camouflage or special processing required - just counted them out and put them in their buckets. (I did sweep the...
and you could say "whoa" quietly in a low tone.
Many good responses with which I concur. Just to add, if I "allow" (as opposed to requesting), the horse offers forward. If he is on my aids, then I get less forward just as easily by closing the...
Couldn't agree more. I think one of the real challenges for many people is the meaning of "evidence-based." For whatever reasons, some possibly educational, some certainly aspirational, people have...
Typo? What typo?
Warm water. If none in barn, thermos bottle. Only takes a few seconds.
If I am understanding you correctly, it sounds as if you've made good progress getting him used to being around people and having basic manners. Also if I understand what you mean about being...
