    Very cute. Hope you have a long and fun time with him. Are you doing the surgery soon?

    You're not doomed. It is just a phase and very typical with green beans---including the tantrum. My current boy had it with drops into water. Schooling and experience takes care of it. After...

    Well that lovely gray mare posted earlier (with a great pedigree) won her last start, was 2nd in the two before so while it seems clear her connections think it is time for her to find a different...

    Well....you know my type of horse. I like them sensitive. It is ABSOLUTELY critical with these guys that you have your mind in the right place. No fear or tension as they can tell. Do NOT make...

    I'd probably find a simple second opinion---from a doctor that rides.

    In the end, I'd probably not ride. The blood thinners being more the reason than being pregnant. While you may not...

    This is what my boy does. He constantly filps an ear back (often)--listening with me. He RARELY puts both back or keeps it back. But you can see him checking in with me all the time, especially on...

    I understand where some of the "no tiers" are coming from but I do think it is shaped by your own experiences and who is around you.

    Don't. It might be over a cliff while counting my canter strides out loud ;)

    And if someone has leased YOUR preferred horse....they will get to ride it, not you. So to a certain extent, I get why the lease is more expensive. It is taken the horse out of the lessons. So...

    The welfare of the horse is the responsibility of the rider. You train for changes in the speed with how you do your conditioning. Improve the rideability of your horse so there is less...

    Depends on your area. My farm is $850 full board. You add 150 ever 4-5weeks for shoes, vet and maintenance costs, insurance etc. 500 a month for 2 rides a week is probably about cost.....although...

    I guess that is where I disagree. Progress to me is adding back and improving confidence. A very experienced rider with green horses may not need lessons....but most of the rest of us do. But...

    By more schooling, what Winding Down described what I was thinking. Lots of jumping small and easy. Build him and yourself up. Lots of good boys. You have to present everything in a very slow and...

    Building back blown confidence in either a horse OR person takes time and skill.

    First get rid of your expectations. He is a living breathing horse. He doesn't think like you. You can not...

    So exciting. Congratulations! I was very bummed that I missed breeding to your boy as I have a couple of girls that would have suited. He was a very cool boy.

    Hell...I've had horses get really hurt in stalls. And yes....our horses are valuable that are tied to a trailer too......I've known multiple Olympic horses who stand tied to a trailer (horses...

    I would talk to your vet. A few things, the Pentosan may help him some. Also, discuss with your vet the benefit of giving him a bit of bute when competing. Under USEF rules, he can have a bit and...

    That was why I purposely didn't include increasing the time penalties in my proposal. That said....I'm not really for change or that unhappy with the way it currently is. Dressage should have an...

    We tie to the trailer....and I was taught that originally from my hunter/jumper trainer....now I'm an eventer. Everything was expected to learn to tie. You always have the exception to the rule...

    I'm not sure there is a solution that I find acceptable from a perspective of concern for the horse.

    Bottom line...while horses have gotten better in quality that we are using for eventing, horses...

    And that is where you are wrong. MOST are riding more than one...There are far more at that level with multiple horses than the one.

    We will shout a few cheers for you. Most of those at my farm will be there and we have a soft spot for redheads. Hopefully you can make it out for FairHill (I'm assuming that is the goal for her).
