    In my experience, horses truly do 'not' want to step on you. If they are down as was this horse, and they can't see or sense the full range of the situation and don't want to step on you getting up,...

    You can do it, if he has your number, you just have to change your number. You 'ask' once and then that 'ask' becomes pretty firmly rhetorical. The 'new you' needs to have the aura that says 'love...

    Yer killin' me Midge:)! (Actually what ignited was a 2 x 4 that was support for the chimney cap way up top, neither the firefighters nor the insurance guy had ever seen such a thing happen).

    Actually, a good wooden tree will last for decades, but of course fit is important.

    OP, as to 'resale value on a Circle Y,' there really isn't any for the particular brand. Something like a Ryon...

    When my doorbell rings, I answer it. The Great Dane is always at my side and he does a good impression of a 165 lb guard dog. He's backed up by the terrier that looks like he could grab an ankle.

    I watched this earlier on a Facebook post. My opinion is, not a thing wrong with horse or rider, just a fluke slip. Give credit to the horse for staying still, not anything the rider did. I've had...

    Not a stupid question at all, yes, a side pass is a 'bigger' leg yield, the horse simply moves sideways, crossing over front and rear, a very handy feature to have on any horse. You can move over to...

    And, some of 'those of us who train western' haven't had a need to ever use a curb strap on a snaffle over the span of 50 years (not insinuation, statement of fact), but we really don't care if...

    Egads, we'd better round up all the poor mustangs and put them in barns. The poor dears don't even have much for windbreaks in some areas. The horror.

    Ooh. This is sounding like one of those places that's going to get complaints for starving horses in a few years. You are wise to extricate yourself from the situation. I've been in a place where...

    'Dressage' is simply the French word for 'training,' the verb is 'dresser,' 'to train.' Every horse I've had, some started from scratch, others retrained, the fundamentals are to me the same...

    Yes, this director also did 'The Cove' and I screened that one here and had a fascinating chat with the director while we were marking time to the q&a. He isn't safe in Japan anymore, or wasn't at...

    For hunting I personally prefer the rock hard end of the spectrum to protect against bangs from trees and stiff brush when moving at speed. It does depend on your country but my boots historically...

    I brought a 26 yo mare out of retirement to start fox hunting to pack my kids around. She wondered why I waited so long to show her such a fun sport.
