    I've had one that did that. Would.not.turn. when he felt the mood come over him. Don't want to go right? Ok, let's go left. and left again. and again, in little tiny circles. Until going right seems...

    Hmmm. I think I agree with the idea that relaxed fingers can lead to stiff elbows and back. I actually have to think about that when riding and I do notice that I am often stiff in the back and...

    Wow. Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm checking out whether oak logs are ok, as we have several dead branches on our oak trees. I'll buy the soap first, and then if that doesn't work will see about...

    Horses chewing the barn down!

    Cross posting here; not sure where this belongs. What have you found that will stop them from chewing the wood? Unfortunately, here in CA no opportunity for grazing, but they are in fairly large...

    Aaargh....horses chewing the barn down

    What have you found that will stop them from chewing the wood? Unfortunately, here in CA no opportunity for grazing, but they are in fairly large corrals, and are fed hay three times a day, so have...

    I can't begin to figure it out. Been riding for 62 years and much of that time was riding for others. Rode many school horses as kid, then as a teenager I began riding for a trainer...so many more...

    Spin off of 'hands' thread

    Will someone please tell me why it is that you're supposed to keep your fingers closed on the reins. Other than 'you're supposed to'. I've been riding for 60+ years, and from the time I was little...

    Just watched a quick interview with her. Made me kinda sad, since I think she really believes that she is doing something good. Now I feel bad for laughing at it/her.
    But I admit, still laughing.

    OMG. It was like passing a bad car wreck on the freeway. I couldn't look away. And yet I missed the lack of undies. I'll have to go back and try again. But the lack of lead change made me tense.

    If it smells funny, I pass. I went to buy several bales of alfalfa the other day, and the two young men doing the loading told me that the bales had 'sweat'. I'm wondering if it's the same thing. I...

    I think he's cute, but I don't know what level you're looking to do. To my mind he looks useful and will develop into a stout guy. He doesn't strike me as an outstandingly athletic, catty type....

    I agree with the chain over the nose. And timing. You need to pop him - hard- when he tries to turn away, and then release. Can't out pull him. Pop and pop again to keep him off balance. A steady...

    I'm not going to comment on the horse, but I've gotten two horses from this trainer, (if it's who I think it is) and he takes great care of his horses, is honest, and wants the best for his horses.

    I would not get a cow. Talk about flies!

    I had a mustang that adopted my small flock of sheep. Even though they had access to a large pasture, during the day I'd find them all huddled up in one...

    Thanks for the responses. Furlong asked for his name: it's I'll Be Smart. As far as I can tell the breeder was part owner during his short career. He ran in CA, but I'm not sure where he was foaled....

    Finding the breeder?

    I'm sure it's been discussed but I couldn't find it in the 'search'. I'm trying to find the address of my horse's breeder. I've gone on equibase, google, and facebook, and find their names, but no...

    Call the Stanford Red Barn or look them up online. I believe there are several trainers there and they give public lessons.

    I'd like to know why she had you jumping a two foot line if you haven't been on a horse in three years. Yikes.

    I have heard over and over again that alfalfa makes a horse hot. I don't really see how that could be. It is high in protein, high in calcium, neither of which make a horse hot. There can be problems...

    I have a mare that always wants to roll when we first go out. I let her roll, and then she's ready to concentrate and go to work. I don't see any harm in it. I will add, that she never tries to roll...
