    It does take time and continuous effort...lots of both!

    Things that have helped me:

    1. regular lessons with a trainer who is very good at biomechanics

    Any updates on this cutie?

    I could give him a field, good food and care, and time, but just can't justify buying a horse on whom I'd instantly have to drop $$$$$ on ulcer meds, farrier work, body...

    Hmm...how old is she? Is there a good (young-horse) trainer nearby that you can work with for a session or three?

    I have an opinionated little mare too (bay, though) and I agree with whomever said...

    Great discussion! Please let us know what you find out about the ICEdot.

    I'm going to download the Road ID app right now--thank you for that, Bensmom! DH travels a bunch during the summer, but...

    Really doesn't matter this time around. We'll be staying in Woodbridge/Dumfries and I'd like to go out Warrenton way to visit whicker, and also maybe do some shopping at the Middleburg Tack Exchange,...
  6. Instructors in NoVA with lesson horses?

    So I'm traveling back to NoVA for the holidays, and would like to get lessons for my brother's girlfriend (grew up riding jumpers in Argentina, but hasn't ridden in years) and my brother (absolute...

    A few thoughts:

    If he likes a steadier bit, you may try a Baucher or mullen mouth Dee bit. I would also try a Myler comfort snaffle. Some horses seem to invert to escape bits that are...

    RTB--I can't speak for all of mine, but I love my Heritage. Very close contact feel. It's one of those saddles I don't notice at all when I'm riding in it--it doesn't force me into any particular...

    It may have been a local thing? Years ago in CA I bought a tea tree oil glycerin soap bar that was a dark green color, but the brand is long gone from my memory. I liked it, plus it discouraged mold!...

    Which BC model did you try? Most recently I tried a Tex Eventer. I had to hike my stirrups up, and it was quite a different feel than I was used to--definitely put me in a galloping/jumping position....

    I'd take My Image in a blink if I had more time! Despite different breeding, he looks so much like my older mare, who went strong until 18 or so and was incredibly athletic (still is, in her...

    How tall are you and where are you? I have a (brown) monoflap Marcus Krehan that was flocked to fit my older TB with a very similar shape. She is now mostly retired, so I could send it to you to try...

    Yay! This is great news! There is a positivity that has been coming through in your posts for the past few months, which is great to 'hear.' Best of luck with your continued recuperation. :yes:

    If you can, although it's a pain, try to get to a tack shop and actually try some on. Some are available with custom options, but it will at least give you a starting point.

    That said, I also have...
  15. Wanted: Safe Pony for 4 year old Girl - Tallahassee

    So I know this is a long shot, but we're not in any rush. Daughter has begun asking for her own pony, and DH just agreed to let her have one. :D

    Daughter is almost 4, and I'd like something that...

    Prestige Top/2000D vs Grand?

    Curious about how the models compare. I rode in someone's 2000D for a few months years ago, and adored it.

    Now I'm looking at the Prestiges for my short-backed young mare, in part due to the...

    Not sure I'm up for keeping these in stock, but if you know what you want, please feel free to message me and I could probably make what you need! I would recommend a hook or two as well as Velcro.

    If you can, go try on some COs. They have some models that fit round heads, and some that fit long ovals. I too am a bit too long oval for even IRH's long oval. The latter is what I wore for a while,...

    Is it worth it?? Yes! :D

    Even if you don't feel like you're improving much, I think even 1-2 times/week can help you at least stay on a plateau, especially with an older horse. (Now that I've said...

    I agree with whomever said the cumulative effect is really noticeable and sets it apart from other soaps. My ponies had most of the summer off (well, one is mostly retired anyway) and when I pulled...

    You can always try it, and if it doesn't work well, just wait for horse to dry and then clip as usual! I did try it a couple of years ago, and it didn't work well on mine. My guess is that success...
