    I've done something like this. I hold a hoof pick up while grooming and when the horse swings around he pokes himself in the neck. If a stud chain is used correctly one or two quick jerks, reenforced...

    Actually, I think sorrels (chestnut if you're with your english friends, lol) like grays, can look good in just about any color so pick one you like. I personally like navy blue.

    I have a horse like this. He gets super bored in the arena and is most happy exploring new territory. I try to ride him out to an outside area and do arena work there as much as possible or trailer...

    I've seem more problems from ill fitting treed saddles than from treeless.

    I had a Barefoot London and didn't care for the super long flaps (this was the old style) and it felt more like a...

    Years ago I decided that it didn't matter how much I spent on boots. If I wore them almost every day in the mud and hosing down horses, their days were numbered. What I do now is buy $5 pairs when I...

    I introduce it out of a 10 meter circle. I also play around with shoulders leading, haunches leading a bit and get to a point where the horse stays where I want most of the time.

    I you think the horse is in danger of hurting herself because of shying at extraneous noises then do what's necessary.

    I would start leaving a radio on in the barn and play music in the arena.

    I spent most of my youth riding bareback and still do. I also use treeless saddles.

    I've seen more back problems from ill fitting saddles than I ever have from bareback riding.

    I too have had success in using the halt (and stand) as a reward. I also practice halt (from various gaits) at the end of a lesson so when I get a good one I can quit on a good note.
