I felt like a failure when I made the decision to retire my horse. But a trainer that I know and respect who has ridden to the 3 star level told me of a horse she had with a wicked stop - she said...
I had a horse with a wicked stop in him. It totally shook my confidence. I agree with the advice to have her thoroughly vet checked. Obviously you want to give the mare every benefit of the...

I had a similar issue with my horse. My horse moves soooo much better in a wider saddle that left the telltale dry patches. I use the Mattes correction half pad and put a shim in the pocket by...
Fantastic! Love how she talks to her horse:)
Oh no! That sounds awful. I hate to see so many issues at one or two fences. Hope horses & riders are alright. The whole brush thing fascinates me in general. I can think of many brush...
I love this idea.....to give me the help I obviously need and NOT pound my poor horse.
