    I think the helmetless should be required to finance their own TBI rehabs. That oughtta put a dent in their thinking…. correlated with the dent in their wallet.

    Yeah.

    Dude, you can't ask the Grammar Nazis to come on over to your thread… with an apostrophe mistake.

    And another thing! What's up with that being such a common kind of rash all over written...

    I'm like you.

    And I grew up with a sister and mom who were not. Our basic MOs didn't' suit the other guy. Our family has a bit of a nasty convention of being adversarial, by the way.

    So...

    Remember, too, that in a Brannaman clinic, you'll spend 3 or so hours at a stretch doing those (slow, gentle) turn around maneuvers. I'm paranoid but I'm not sure a large, weak horse needs to be...

    More learned as a child:

    A pro friend of mine always says of a really good-minded, ammy-friendly horse: "You can tie him to the swing set," because as a kid, she did this to one of hers.

    My rule of thumb for any clinician…. and it stood me in good stead with Brannaman:

    Go watch sans horse before you pay your money and take your horse.

    With Brannaman, that's especially true...

    I agree with the "How do you separate the great from the good when the job is so dang easy" problem. It really is one. In fact, it's becoming one in HunterWorld, too.

    You must admit, it's a...

    Me, too.

    But! The best halter for this job is that single ply, comes-pretty-oily, India leather thing. I think Gatsby was the original brand. But the Suffolk one in a link here, and the Riding...

    Does your house smell like "toast…. but somehow better"?

    I used to live in a small Central NY town that sprouted some roasters. On their roasting days, the area smelled great.

    Oh, and I live in...

    To be fair, the horse who pulls back and panics is at risk in any halter. If equipment breaks, his noggin and withers are at risk, too.

    IMO, horses should be *taught* to stand tied, not made an...

    OP, you chose exactly the right halter: That single ply, cheap (but you can soften 'em) India leather halter is the right one for your intended use.

    And the "It will break" or "The equipment won't break" is the big philosophical dividing line in various horsemen's approaches to tying. Using the blocker ring can be seen as a compromise, though...

    Yabbut, the phases of the canter in the "bad" and "good" are different. To be accurate, he would have had to have picked the same one for both.

    I suppose I should be glad to see someone in WP...

    Yanno, I think the guy just gave your SO some leverage: "Pay me the $5k owed, or I'm reporting the attempted fraud to the IRS."

    As I understand it, those 5%-ers do show up… in all times and all places. I'll bet their software is under construction right now and that's why yours didn't materialize.

    No, no. The OP said she'd pee in a stall.

    But she says "Human poop… forget about it."

    Good luck with that.
