    Horses are great at teaching you to live in the moment, but I also have to say that being able to thinking your way through a problem is great. If you mean by being self-critical to the point where...

    This is why it's personal preference and also a lot more about the look than the feel. The stiff, fully lined boot actually gives you less communciation with your horse IMO. In them, my horse goes...

    I saw the straw hat, the left hand, and it was the first name that came to mind. Especially since his paintings are some of the most expensive ones on record. :D

    Van Gogh Fence

    I believe that was more likely the Vincent Van Gogh jump than "painter's jump." He was sitting on the side painting (at least it looked like him) and he was left handed.

    I also think that is one...

    To each his own. I couldn't disagree with you more! Well done scallops are gorgeous. Never had anything but compliments when I did them on my old horse. I even inspired a bunch of other people to...

    Nice braids, but those are not scallops! Scallops actually look good on thinner mane. They are where you have the mane about 6" long, do a lot of smaller braids (with yarn), tie them all off...

    Sometimes when they can see a bit, but not enough to make things out, they shy more. When the eye is gone, unless they hear something really loud on that side, they'll often shy less because it's...

    Over the years, in barns and out here, I've come to realize that there are people that just say and do AMAZINGLY annoying things and we all assume there's some motivation behind it. That the person...

    I would at least try the credit card dispute path and see if they can do anything at all before going for small claims. Just because it would be easier for the OP if it worked out that she could.

    Having rehabbed a lot of horses, my thoughts are different than most out here. Even the rider exercises would often take a horse that's more "on the aids" and ready to collect or leap forward at a...

    I agree with fly. I need to see more photos and more situations. I don't like the training method, but I do know that once in a blue moon you'll use something in your tool box on one horse that you...

    Not a big fan of most NH trainers (who are charlatans), there are a few who have said things that are really valuable. One is the CTJ moment as described once upon a time by John Lyons. He said you...

    Just a point, not all women are the same shape at all. Many have flatter inner thighs. Especially those who are thinner and have been riding since they were young. So even in this is correct for...

    3s,

    This is not at all what other saddlers have said and continue to do when designing saddles for women. Because a woman's pelvis is slightly wider, they make the twist wider and also add a...

    A wider horse DOES alter the feel of the saddle and makes it feel less narrow. I believe that is what people were attempting to point out. It's the reality of a wider horse and how all saddles fit...
