    Cavesson - we pronounce as 'kah-VESS-enn'.

    For me, in a downward transition, I tense my thigh muscles, my butt, and stiffen my back. I'm not actively doing anything with them other than no longer going with the flow of the horse - I am in...
  3. As in

    We frequently ask around here,

    "what's up, chickey?' so perhaps it's the same?

  4. unusual colours

    I had a dark-purple helmet custom-made in england (VERY reasonable, under $100 as they classed it a commercial sample) to go with my charcoal gray jacket that has purple/heather pinstripes in it....

    watched online at cbc.ca

    Tried to find the CBC's 'Bold' station (what used to be CBC's Country Canada) on bell expressvu - nearly had a heart attack when I found out live dressage coverage was on - and of course the channel...

    Hmph.

    What a choice -- A) Struggling poor person with a sense of self respect, much beloved by all and able to sleep soundly at night.

    Agree with Linny.

    Ooh oooh oooh - if anky can get pitched, then 'experienced grooms' get kicked/bit/struck. Experience does not equal...

    Agree completely, but one must already have the shank on. In order to already have a shank on, the owner must be aware that horsey is behaving unacceptably, not that he's maintaining his self-esteem...

    Do you not feel that the horse should be corrected for this behaviour when it occurs so that he learns it is unacceptable? What if this horse had struck a toddler walking by with mummy or daddy (as...

    I would have screeched in surprise too at the shock and pain, and swatted with my hand or the brush in it since my horse is generally harder than my hand.

    You must frown ferociously, and pin your ears back flat. Showing teeth can also be effective if pinned ears don't get the message across.

    You take him firmly by the halter, look him square in the eye, and say BAD HORSE, BAD HORSE!!

    but quietly enough so the owner doesn't hear......

    I'm a firm believer that discipline should be meted out fairly, and immediately be it to horses, dogs, children. It should not matter who is watching if the discipline is fair, reasonable, and...

    Gotta ask -- your point??

    Never smacked a horse back for smacking you? Be honest now.

    Yep, yep yep yep....

    Suck the lifeblood out of anyone sweet and naive enough to not show up with a Notary and a contract requiring 2 signatures....

    Sorry for your woes, but as you've heard...

    My new OTTB's name is 'Bank of Kanata'. How does that grab you all?

    I don't like it at all. 'Ka-NAH-ta' does not roll mellifluously. Don't much like 'Natta' either.
