    I never rode in sunglasses until after I burned my eyes one day at a show. Miserable experience. Went out and bought Oakleys. I have a small face so glasses generally don't stay put. This purchase...

    You may know safety and terminology, but a lot of beginner trainers do not. We have all seen it so no need to go into detail on that. Two people with the same number of years of experience does not...

    Maybe they need to have a basics certification level for this group at an affordable rate. I think the people who teach the very beginners need just as much help as a more advanced trainer. Teaching...

    It's a start. We have to start somewhere.

    I hope it evolves into a program that requires riding and teaching as a part of the evaluation (like USDF's program). Even that wouldn't be fool-proof,...

    I know we'll never change George Morris (and that's okay by me), but my point was:

    1) Since he is so accomplished, why does he need to set the example of name-calling? All he needs to say is "I'm...

    Call/email barns in your area that might have a program that will fit your horse. Good video/pictures are really helpful.

    Good luck!

    I think the 56 in the CO GR8 fits me and the 57 in the GPA fits me.

    I dunno. I'm out here on the west coast and the lack of *correct* flatwork from a lot of trainers makes me sad (not all, but a lot). I rode with a GM-trained instructor (several actually) but didn't...

    Lots of good pole exercises in Linda Allen's book. Working on perfecting transitions and corners. Turns on the forehand, haunches, leg yields, shoulder-in...all can be done at the walk. :)

    Yup! Baffling huh?

    What can we do? Stop going. Start supporting the C-circuit and programs like Linda Allen's. The beautiful thing about capitalism is that you can vote with your pocketbook. ;)
