    Cute horse.

    She doesn't look like she's really moving forward at all. She's kind of poking along. That could just be the way she is on the lunge line, but to be able to tell much it would be...

    A baucher does not have any poll pressure, and it really has nothing in common with an elevator bit if what is working for you is the leverage action of the elevator.

    Some horses prefer a baucher...

    I think the "peg" part of the jods is not the flares but the tight calves, as in they make the lower legs look like pegs.

    I have a pair of Dublin River boots that I've worn now for two winters. I wear them to the barn, I ride in them, I walk the dog in them, I shovel snow in them, walk through mud, etc.

    The big flared thighs were more necessary before stretchy knits and wovens became common.

    Breeches always used to be mid-calf length because you were meant to wear them with tall boots; jodhpurs...

    I think RhythmnCruise's two posts above have a lot of interesting things to say.

    The part of the OP's discussion of the horse's problems that I find most significant with regard to pain is that...

    Is it possible that any of the personnel at the boarding barn that you temporarily moved him to might have mishandled him?

    I ask because you said that while he had occasionally acted bad with...

    I've had good luck with Rhinos as well, and I also have a Smartpak supreme turnout sheet that has held up very well. I've had the Smartpak one for 4 years at this point, and it's in great shape. I...

    I'm thinking that some of the different techniques and how well they work (or don't work) may have to do with different types of leather (deerskin vs. cow leather) and different tanning processes.

    I have a TB mare, and I currently use the Easy Boot Back Country boots on her. They work very very well for her, and I was careful about measuring her.

    It is definitely worth getting the Fit Kit...

    I've been riding in them in the winter every ride--they're much warmer than my regular paddock boots.

    The River boots are a little short if I'm riding in a very long stirrup, but for most riding...

    Great update. Trot poles, etc. are great for helping the horse to develop back muscles that support the whole skeleton. That plus a better fitting saddle could make a huge difference.

    I hope that...

    I did an older bridle in the machine with Leather Therapy, which was what I was using to wash full-seat breeches.

    The bridle got clean, but it seemed very dry, even though I'd used the conditioner...

    What is the difference between how a lighter WBx is built and a heavier, muscled-up TB? I'd love to see some pix of the horse.

    I'm all for a great saddle-fit but I also think that there's a...

    The one that I like the most is the Griffin-Nuumed pad. It uses wool, rather than fleece with the skin, and the pad lasts longer because of that.

    The only downside is you have to order from...

    This may seem like a silly question, but, have you tried singing? It's an old trick for young riders to make sure that they keep breathing, and it can help with timing, etc. Mostly what it does is...

    I would agree that sometimes changing this kind of behavior just takes a long time. Longer than 10 months.

    Of course every horse is different, and it's undoubtedly true that some horses will...

    You could add either Omega Horseshine or HorseTech's Bioflax 20 to your horse's Smartpaks.

    That kind of extreme back soreness often can be attributed to bad saddle fit, but it sounds like that couldn't be the issue.

    Other possibilities: hock arthritis. This is less likely with a younger...

    I also agree that this was displaced aggression. It's even possible that he didn't know that it was your hand, since horses don't see things at the ends of their noses very well.
