    Beet pulp soaked with LOTS of water will really help to both get some water into your TB and help him gain weight. I use the bp and rice bran pellets with good success in keeping/adding weight on my...

    Gonna bump this up. Really hoping someone will make an offer on this guy. (And no, he's not mine, but I have gotten two very nice horses through this trainer.)

    Here's a cute one in CA. And it looks like some nice horses in his...

    I'd like to see it brought out. If it's been in a stall, it won't be that dirty, so it shouldn't take much time to knock the dust off. I want to watch it be tacked up, and I want to see it go first....

    Beautiful pony. Beautifully groomed. Happy to hop in the little van. I was a bit surprised reading all the hateful comments on the fb page. No helmet? Let the kid load the pony?

    Well, yes,...

    Maybe a dumb question, but is "ration balancer" a brand name, a generic name for any kind of vitamin/mineral supplement, something else? I feed mine alfalfa hay, Bermuda hay, timothy pellets, rice...

    I'm not going to comment on GM's style of teaching, but as one who learned to ride during the late 50's and 60's, and showed extensively in the 60's and 70's, I was never bullied or berated. Had I...

    I've had one that did that. Would.not.turn. when he felt the mood come over him. Don't want to go right? Ok, let's go left. and left again. and again, in little tiny circles. Until going right seems...

    Hmmm. I think I agree with the idea that relaxed fingers can lead to stiff elbows and back. I actually have to think about that when riding and I do notice that I am often stiff in the back and...

    Wow. Thanks for all the suggestions. I'm checking out whether oak logs are ok, as we have several dead branches on our oak trees. I'll buy the soap first, and then if that doesn't work will see about...

    Horses chewing the barn down!

    Cross posting here; not sure where this belongs. What have you found that will stop them from chewing the wood? Unfortunately, here in CA no opportunity for grazing, but they are in fairly large...

    Aaargh....horses chewing the barn down

    What have you found that will stop them from chewing the wood? Unfortunately, here in CA no opportunity for grazing, but they are in fairly large corrals, and are fed hay three times a day, so have...

    I can't begin to figure it out. Been riding for 62 years and much of that time was riding for others. Rode many school horses as kid, then as a teenager I began riding for a trainer...so many more...

    Spin off of 'hands' thread

    Will someone please tell me why it is that you're supposed to keep your fingers closed on the reins. Other than 'you're supposed to'. I've been riding for 60+ years, and from the time I was little...

    Just watched a quick interview with her. Made me kinda sad, since I think she really believes that she is doing something good. Now I feel bad for laughing at it/her.
    But I admit, still laughing.

    OMG. It was like passing a bad car wreck on the freeway. I couldn't look away. And yet I missed the lack of undies. I'll have to go back and try again. But the lack of lead change made me tense.

    If it smells funny, I pass. I went to buy several bales of alfalfa the other day, and the two young men doing the loading told me that the bales had 'sweat'. I'm wondering if it's the same thing. I...

    I think he's cute, but I don't know what level you're looking to do. To my mind he looks useful and will develop into a stout guy. He doesn't strike me as an outstandingly athletic, catty type....

    I agree with the chain over the nose. And timing. You need to pop him - hard- when he tries to turn away, and then release. Can't out pull him. Pop and pop again to keep him off balance. A steady...

    I'm not going to comment on the horse, but I've gotten two horses from this trainer, (if it's who I think it is) and he takes great care of his horses, is honest, and wants the best for his horses.

    I would not get a cow. Talk about flies!

    Thanks for the responses. Furlong asked for his name: it's I'll Be Smart. As far as I can tell the breeder was part owner during his short career. He ran in CA, but I'm not sure where he was foaled....

    Finding the breeder?

    I'm sure it's been discussed but I couldn't find it in the 'search'. I'm trying to find the address of my horse's breeder. I've gone on equibase, google, and facebook, and find their names, but no...
