    Thanks! I always felt it was more of a fashion thing. Having gone from eventing to hunters, and now to hunting, I've seen what's popular in each.

    Very pretty! I wonder if you washed that loose & coarse wool if it would tighten up, or if you'd just end up with felt ;-)

    Small update - practice is going well.
    We've been standing for periods when we hack out on the trail and I've also been making him stand in the ring while we watch others go ( about 15+ minutes...

    I've often wondered about just how one goes about teaching a horse to ground tie. That sounds like another useful skill for my guy to learn!

    Interesting Foxglove! I know what you mean, and I've seen it too. I've just never needed that kind of standing around before ;-)

    My guy generally stands well when I'm on the ground. I'm not sure...

    Hell, I would gladly have let him graze!! ;-) I even pointed him at some yummy stuff (when there was yummy stuff to be had)....

    We're going to be practicing just standing while mounted. I realized...

    I'll try to be more consistent with the slack rein (tried it a couple times on Wednesday). He's got his own engine, but he's generally happy to go around with his nose poking out and I can usually...

    Thank you jawa!

    You have touched on a few of the things we're working on.

    Saddle fit is not ideal. He's definitely one to let me know when he's not happy about saddle fit and not standing isn't...
  16. Please tell me your stories of horses who got better....

    ...about standing at checks.

    My TB and I have been out a few times now (we're both new to hunting), and in all aspects but one, he's been solid. That one has been a real pain; he doesn't stand at...

    This is very interesting to me! I am new to hunting myself, and only recently took my horse on his first hunt. Our hunt has a few (non-staff) members who carry whips, but they are in the minority....

    It's easy to tell someone you don't know to put down their horse. It's not easy to be the person facing a difficult decision!

    I actually tried on a pair last Friday. I loved the way the foot felt - like sneakers - but the soft leather just didn't seem like it would hold up. I'd totally have some as a spare....

    I believe hay that's cut when the milk is in the oats and is specifically for horses is very different from mulch-type oat hay. I knew someone who fed it and her horses were in beautiful condition.
