    Bad weather is bad weather. I'd give a pass on that one, if it weren't for everything else. And the turnout situation, and unwillingness to discuss it with you, sounds very dodgy. I would be furious...

    Yes. This is why the standing exercise is fantastic. When you stand, your only balance point with the horse is your legs. You can't depend on your hands or the crest or your seat. It forces you to...

    Lots of good advice above. I'd also ask what situation is leading to the stop.

    Are you jumping ahead and the horse loses confidence so he stops? That will always get you in trouble because, when...

    I think the trainer wants commission for the original sale, which she did help facilitate. So, if she had requested commission at the time of the sale, it wouldn't have been unreasonable. However,...

    Try Larges. You might be surprised.

    My horse is 17'1 and fairly broad, but not a draft. He is oversized in the bridle - more because of how big around his head is than the length, and his legs...

    You might also try a side braid that you pull around the back of your head and then tuck then end on the other side of your head. It takes a little trial and error to figure out where to put it so...

    This for everyday wear. And I cannot say enough how much I like the fit of the OneK long oval. The tack shop lady says all the girls with long hair love it.

    For shows, where I want my hair to be...

    What??? My farrier doesn't take any sole or frog off my shod horse. I'm relatively certain he isn't messing with the bars either. My horse's front heart bar shod feet and hind barefoot feet look...

    I love having digital! I print off one for my trailer, one for my show kit, one for my barn owner and if I ever need to submit one with an entry and I don't have a copy on hand (say I'm in my office)...

    My Chevy 1/2 ton has the 4:10 ratio, the enhanced suspension, the extra radiator and the bigger alternator. It is rated for 10,500 lbs. Manufacturers recommend you stay 25% below your maximum towing...

    This, more or less. And here's why. A good trainer is willing to be questioned and to explain their preferences and suggestions. The answers don't really matter, but their willingness to provide them...

    I had to bring a young horse back from a much shorter layup and honestly, the most helpful thing we did was cut his feed and take some weight off him. We didn't make him skinny or ribby by any means,...

    Some horses just do this. My trainer's OTTB always sticks his tongue out when he is hacking around relaxed and happy. He's not nervous or busy mouthed. He just sticks his tongue out. Eventually, she...

    I'm late with my thanks, but I got my second box a couple days after Christmas. The bracelet and earrings are very cute and a perfect size for my small wrist. They look like they may have been...

    From what I have heard, they are trying to bring horses through it, if they can. If they make it past the worst, they can live comfortably, although they may never be ridable again because strong...

    Time and work should help. My horse's canter didn't really start coming together until he was 6 and even then, towards the end of that "year." It just took him that long to figure out how to use his...

    THere are different types of level 2 Mylers. Some are simply snaffles. Some use hooks or are a more western-type shape to provide leverage. If it is the former, it shouldn't be too much because it is...

    It sounds like the horse isn't bad or nasty. He simply isn't broke. He isn't broke on the ground and it is probably reasonable to assume he isn't particularly broke under saddle either. I would send...

    Assuming there is nothing physical, I order ye to the round pen!

    The horse has to learn that go means go forward. Not stop, not go up, not kick out. The round pen is a good place to do this...

    When you tried the gel, how long did you wait and are you sure you gave enough. Also, you have to put it under their tongue, not simply in their mouth like a wormer. You then have to wait 40 minutes...
