    Because when you do go fast (which is what eventers ?do), the flap pushes up against your helmet, rather than down over your eyes (which is REALLY dorky).

    Is she riding outside the arena? Up and down hills and banks, through water, over logs etc? She needs to have a reason to maintain contact and trotting or cantering down a hill is a pretty good...

    I have travelled numerous horses over the years in hobbles. I train them when I am starting them, usually roping or strapping up a front leg. Horses learn to tolerate the restriction very quickly....

    A little bit off track, but:
    My vet has a life size model horse that they stand in the aisle way in front of the boxes if they have a single horse in for care. It makes a real difference to the...

    You beat me to this. Everything we feed our horses are "substances" - and could actually also be defined as "performance enhancing". Most of the "substances" are also herbs - because horses are...

    I was an extra in two of The Lord of the Rings movies: galloping across the plains, escaping into the castle, going out to battle with my fellow rangers and lots of foot soldier scenes with Shadowfax...

    Watch some horses in a herd and observe how the alpha mare (usually) or gelding manages the bratty, pushy horses who try to get above their station. Treat him like that.

    Other horses would...

    This is a kaimanawa pony who was at my place recently for handling after being mustered out of the wild. At this stage she was about 6 weeks off the ranges. Clearly lack of exposure to horse eating...

    That mule is very well trained to voice - he's doing as he's told. He's wearing blinkers, so can't see behind himself and can't really tell where his wagon is going.

    What's happened for the pony? This is one of the most awesome things about COTH. I see people from all over the place pulling together to make things happen for a pony no one has even met. Go COTH.

    I've used heaps of different sorts and also hate the ones that blow hair into your face. Lister are the best. They have vents at the back, behind where you hold them. (Well the three different models...

    See, that's why I drive as well as event. They're both such an adrenalin buzz. I'd love to do four ponies in hand like that. I also have to say that back stepping is just as much fun as actually...

    The teeth pictures aren't really clear enough. When you take the picture from the side, we need to clearly see all the teeth, from gum line to chewing surface (no fingers in the way). We also need to...

    I'd say 11, going on 12. Galvayne's groove appears at 10, is 1/2 way down by 15. He's still got an infundibulum in all of his teeth - this goes from the centrals at 12. Teeth are still oval - they...

    No, everything that comes in is either re-homed or sent to slaughter. This year, for the first time, there were nearly enough homes for all the horses and ponies. Only the lame, unsound, extremely...

    Remember that if you are looking at true "stationbred" horses, these are / were horses bred for shepards to use working stock on stations and are generally small - 16 hh would be big. Smaller is...

    I come from the very old school which says white is for senior hunt servants and people wearing top hat and tails (and white gloves), so I wear biege / cream. I have even worn biege with tails - and...

    I haven't read everyone's replies, but: I have had success with a Mylar combination. Rope / cord across the nose, strap under the nose and a variety of rings to choose for leverage.

    I had completed 3 years of German at school before I went there. It took me a couple of weeks before I started to be able to think in German and then I was off. Other students (I was 15) would talk...

    Delerium after a general aneasthetic is reasonably common - especially in older people. It also happens in younger people. I am guessing this could well be identified as a psychotic break.

    This made me giggle and brought back memories of riding in Germany many, many years ago when I first heard it!! I can even picture the instructor and the tone and way he said it. I think the horses...

    I often have weird dreams / nightmares the night before an event: I find myslef riding up the centerline with nothing on under my riding jacket. Or I wake up at 10:00 am when I planned to leave home...

    Jeannette, you have my sympathy, but Yellowbritches, I gasped when I read your post. I can't think of many worse scenarios.
