    Have you tried getting him a ball or a toy? Maybe that would keep him a little entertained.

    Mine mucks up his bedding big time, but aside from one leisurely stroll, I've never seen him walking or...

    My horse does exactly what yours does. Honestly, I never see him walking, so I don't think he's pacing, but he clearly does some serious redecorating every night. I've never had a stall that...

    At the last dressage clinic I went to, the clinician had me do some ground work to get his back end moving more snappily.

    Basically, I was mounted as usual and she taped the back of his legs with...

    Tbxdutch is 6 and growing (although I think he may have had his last growth spurt). Got him at 3 and he was 16'1.he's just shy of 17.1 now. Most of it happened late 3-4 with an extra inch or so in...

    I wouldn't do the trial. If she s local and wants additional rides/lessons, you possibly could accommodate that - at your barn. If she wants to see how he handles at a different venue and you are...

    ...The buttons drive me crazy. They are the Tredstep DeLuxe half-chaps and after the first few months, I could never close one of ones at the foot and and time went by, the others also became hard to...

    My barn owner is my farrier too, so if he isn't looking for the shoe, I am or my name is mud! Of course, when my horse loses a shoe, there is generally no finding it.

    Tractor Supply was about the best price could find. Everything else was $$$$$ on top of more $$$$$ for shipping. :p

    Maybe, since you are doing something in bulk though, you could find somewhere...

    They don't make human hurdles to like like anything but hurdles, but I'm sure if they did, Pfizer would have one. They have their name stamped on plenty of athletes and athletic teams now.

    You sound like an educated rider who knows what you're doing, so, assuming your horse is educated and isn't jumping big because he needs more training at height, I'll suggest you try the Watson bits...

    Love the jumps. Is Dorm actually used for doping? I like the Dorm for clipping because I don't have to give a shot. It takes 45 minutes to kick in, makes him groggy as all get out, makes him drop...

    I would guess, based on this and your earlier statements, that he hasn't yet learned how to squat, bend through his hocks and bring his hind legs up under himself - rather he sort of throws his hind...

    This. Big babies take a while to learn how to use their legs and get their balance. My horse had this problem to the right, but with lots of trot work and canter work on the lunge, he is getting...

    I'm willing to bet the difference is you. Your energy changes, you may ride more tensely and he recognizes that and changes his way of going. So, the key to fixing it might be adjusting your ride.

    That is such an interesting idea. My horse has a horrible issue throwing out his outside shoulder going to the left, which makes me end up feeling like I can't get him off the inside rein. I'm going...

    My inclination, with nothing but your description, would be more than 5. Honestly, an 8yo tends to be worth more than a 4yo bc it has more training, has finished growing and has an adult brain, aka.,...

    SOOOO cute! He's so smooth that he looks like a dream to ride.

    He feels light to you because you aren't carrying any contact and he looks gaity because he is shuffling. Once he is up in your...

    Agree. I primarily do jumpers and dressage but go in hunters for ring experience. My horse has ground eating strides (plus he is huge) so we spend most of our time not on the rail and still do quite...

    For the flat (and really over fences too, somewhat), you are aiming for a training level frame with the nose poked slightly out instead of level at all gaits. The head can go slightly below the...
