    I will frequently revert to doing consistent ground work when I get into a tough place with a horse. In fact, if I'm having a real hard time under saddle, I'll hop off and fix the problem on the...

    I think you can get there pretty easily - you sound plenty competent. I teach side pass very early on - as Beverly said, it's handy and not difficult to learn.

    "I am also always very mindful of making sure my 2-year-olds jump well." Is "jump" slang for something????

    The horse has a problem with "forward," he is picking and choosing when he will listen to the "forward" aids, and it's also a respect issue. A couple things you posted make me think that you are...

    Trees have really evolved during the past 20 years. I love Circle Y's Flex2 tree. You might be better off getting a newer saddle that will fit your horse. You can download tree templates from...
