    Well, if you were trying to ski and kept falling down and I told you it was because you weren't doing it right, would you be offended?

    Some horses aren't particularly sensitive and will let a ...

    This was totally the correct response, except it took you too long to do it.

    If you knew your horses were off, the vet is the person to start with, NOT the farrier. This is to everyone out there...

    Actually, race horses in training are routinely stalled for 21-22 hrs. per day. They get out to gallop or be ponied, then walk till they are cooled out, then put back in their stall. Some barns will...

    This is a clear illustration that your horse is not responsive to ANY of your aids -- not your leg aids nor your hands nor your seat. So, not to be offensive, but this horse is not even capable of...

    Yes, I've seen that happen...but in the case I saw it both parents of the foal were full sized horses.

    Was your dystocia the result of crossing a smaller mare with a larger stallion?

    Right!

    And I've found that it really doesn't take alot of talent to start a horse u/s and just instill w/t, turn, stop.

    You'd be surprised how few of the TBs actually bucked when they were...

    That's where trusting a reputable breeder who REALLY wants to make the right match for their horse comes in. IOW, a breeder who cares more about that than simply making a sale.

    I don't think the issue is "ammie" or "pro". More like those who actually can do it right and those who can't.

    I was never a professional "horse starter" but when I worked w/TBs I was the rider...

    Well, I think if we'd done oxytet on her things might have gone better, but that was never suggested (don't know why) and I didn't know about the option.

    Well, it's o/o my hands now...you'd have to talk to her new owner.;) And it is SO early in the game...so many things can happen. Shah is not even 4 yrs old yet. But so far it is very gratifying to...

    Well, the stallion himself is deceased, but perhaps you can breed your own. A breeder near me (Cocalla Creek Sporthorses) had a Paint/WB stallion who was at least 16.1hh and the stallion who sired...

    Well, I DID get a registered 4 yr. old Hanoverian mare by an approved, imported stallion and o/o a full Hann dam for $2500, but that was sort of a fluke.

    OTOH, I got "taken" by people I thought...

    The economic downturn of afew years ago and the aging-out of such a large segment of the population (the Boomers) changed the horse market world wide.

    Very interesting hypothesis. I'd love to see some sort of actual study done.

    I DO love Sir Gregory, but at this point I think Soprano is the more proven of the two and so a safer bet. Plus, as the other post of Soprano illustrates, you will likely get the jumping power you...
