    :)

    I agree that hacking with others, learning to pass and be passed, leave the group, etc. is necessary. I just prefer to get a horse confident on his own first.

    I agree with Tabula that taking greenies out alone is a GOOD idea and results in a more confident, managable horse down the road.

    I do tons and tons of conditioning alone and ALWAYS start horses...

    Hi Daydream,

    Did Jackie happen to say anything about your horse having exactly the same back as my mare Consolation? She mentioned there was one out there, and I wonder if it's you! :D

    Half chaps to fit over Ariat Terrains?

    Around here (everywhere?), Ariat Terrains are an extremely popular boot choice among endurance riders. Running Bear used to make half chaps that fit over them...but no more. :no:

    I like the Indian bosal from Crazy Ropes for endurance, though I'm not opposed to using a bit during more excitable moments such as the start (or the finish on a really fit horse). :winkgrin: ...

    Update: 5 days of Listerine treatment, following a Selson Blue scrub, seems to have done the trick. She's much happier now. :)

    More good thoughts, thanks guys. :)

    Good suggestion, but I'm fairly certain that's not it, as the skin is definitely VERY, VERY itchy. (Stretchy lip with scratched, leaning into brush, etc.)

    I have Alternating Current, whose sire is Marawooti, who is full brother to Cisco. Her very own custom Stonewall is being built as we speak!

    My favorite bitless option is the Indian bosal from Crazy Ropes. It crosses under the jaw for a little more "bite" than a plain sidepull, if you need it. Very easy to use; I've trained and ridden...

    That's about what I thought -- thanks! Plain alcohol hadn't occurred to me.

    I'm assuming that I could not use anything with arnica after one day's ride, if I also plan to ride the next day.
