    Yes, I find it helpful too. Have you seen Ellen Eckstein's video segments on Eclectic Horseman's Gazette DVDs? For me, they greatly enhanced my understanding of Bringing it Together.

    Whatever you decide, be careful! The two helmets do not fit the same.

    I have the Matte and I had to get a size larger or smaller, can't remember. Try it on before you buy it.

    By the way, I...

    I have used them on young horses that play with the bit because I had two who would flip the snaffle over with their tongues. A loose strap - I've always thought of it as a "lip strap" - under their...

    I have a small motion-activated solar light in the feed area of my run-in shed. It works like a champ. It's much better than a headlight for the feeding chores because the light covers a...

    Can you do a relaxed rein-back? Does he lift his front feet or slide them? Does he back straight or does he veer one way or the other? All of this depends on strength behind as well as...

    I like your "handle," DollyDot! (For a filly, of course)

    For a slightly obscure reference, "Sunday at 9." That's the time slot that Bonanza ran in for most of its (long) history.

    Have fun!

    SLW has it right - there's a very wide variety of saddles in the hunt field and no one I know frowns on anyone else's choice. I personally ride in a Stackhouse that's fairly flat and extremely...

    Wow - that freaked me out for a few seconds. I have a TB mare who is now 26 years old and her mother was Chelsea Miss. I started to reply to your post and then realized that this was a different...

    The "trainer's approach" in post #8 is very correct and very well described.

    Analogously, the best colt-starters I know will say, "if you want a horse to walk off when you get on, get on when they are walking off."

    What I am saying is that if she gets tense before the...

    For a wonderful read, partially about horses and WWI, find "Horses Don't Fly" by Frederick Libby. The second half of the book is about flying in WWI with the RAF, but I dare you to stop reading!

    Three words: READ THE CONTRACT.

    If it doesn't say what you want it to say, don't proceed.

    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...

    Think Harmony with Horses
    Ray Hunt

    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).
