    I had the same problem and it was at least partially due to sitting too much on the approach to the jump such that my weight was not enough in my stirrups/feet. Thinking about approaching in a light...

    IME, with really smart (often bored) horses, if you can stop them from winning a few times they will stop trying (until they think of something else!). My Dad's 25yo Percheron/TB was like this as a...

    For many years I had no idea that it was possible to ride without pain in the nether regions (sometimes to the point of bleeding after a lot of sitting trot or riding without stirrups). Most saddles...

    Raw salmon is fine for your dogs as long as it is frozen first for 2-3 weeks if it came from the Pacific NW (this applies to all salmonoids, which includes trout too). All my dogs love raw salmon...

    I was originally taught in hunter/jumpers to use outside leg back. Now I ride dressage and have consistently been taught outside leg back but the inside leg at the girth actually gives the canter...

    Does anyone know where the shuttles are likely to go to/from? I already have a hotel that is ~2 miles from the venue, but that might be a little far to walk, especially late at night!

    LOL, I guess saving your brains seemed like an obvious benefit to me, but I guess not to others?! I wasn't suggesting the helmet would make the horse better, I was just echoing the sentiment that...

    I buy my oat flour at my local health food store. It is not expensive. Or, you can buy oats and use a food processor/blender to turn it into flour yourself.
