    Rugbug - That makes sense. My horse's left side is definitely his stiff/heavier side and he doesn't want to bend. He switches the front just fine but won't shift his hip over for the back change. ...

    Thanks all. Simple changes do make the most sense since I know he won't get a clean flying on his left. He's pretty good at getting the correct lead on landing too, so maybe with a little luck and...
  3. First Hunter show - lead change question

    So I finally grew some cajones... Going to my first hunter show next weekend - my horse's first show ever and my first show in a VERY long time. (Eek!) We are doing Medium Stirrup (2 ft).

    Thanks for the replies. I don't think anyone who knows my horse & I would ever accuse of us taking things too quickly with the training process. :lol: I am quite confident our jump training has...

    Post-Greenie Blues

    I've owned my 9 yr old OTTB for three years. Bought him with 6 months off the track and light re-training. First year was kind of a wash for training due to some chronic hoof issues (resolved now...

    Go Fish: his jumping form is pretty great (except for when he gets sticky before takeoff and the extreme of craning his neck to watch the fence as he is jumping, which happens much less often). ...

    I think my horse's issue on takeoff is that he REALLY wants to look at the fences before he goes over. He will sometimes crane his neck as we are going over too. It's an odd sensation. Doesn't help...

    bumping this since I would love more suggestions as well. Thought my horse & I were almost past this sticky/stalling behavior before takeoff but it's rearing it's ugly head again... Thanks.

    You guys inspired me & I rode my TB bareback last night for the first time (I've owned him for 3 years). I didn't feel wobbly at all and his A-frame back actually helped me feel quite secure. He was...

    I have a bad right knee from 20 yr old torn ACL. I have tried inexpensive jointed stirrups & regular fillis stirrups. I didn't really notice a difference with either as far as my knee comfort was...

    Like the title says - Would love hay & diet recommendations for the cellulitis/lymphangitis prone horse. Anyone have experience with this and found a definite benefit to grass versus alfalfa?

    Sounds like your horse just needs more time. My boy can take weeks to be sound after an abscess. He may have a tender spot on the hoof that still needs to heal/toughen up a little more.

    Visualizing my seat velcroed to the saddle and lower leg/calf on (versus squeezing with upper thigh or knee) has helped me a lot. I am still trying to develop that pesky independent hand and when I...

    My OTTB can also be very lazy on the lunge and it can take a full smack w/the length of the whip to get him moving on his laziest days. I don't normally lunge but sometimes it's been necessary to...

    Here's what I can tell you about my Solare. I was the first person to order one from Trumbull Mtn. :yes: I spoke with a few BC saddle fitters before ordering and their feedback from other riders was...

    I have a BC Solare and I would definitely recommend the velcro front & rear blocks. I took mine out 2 weeks after I bought my saddle and it was an option I am glad I paid a little extra for. I also...
