    Another vote for no boots on during turnout. Too many risks and I can only imagine the skin issues that could arise should boots be worn for numerous hours.

    Exactly this.

    I agree that jumping 3-4 times a week is an awful lot, especially at those heights. Granted, your horse can obviously take the stress now, because you're jumping so often and your...

    Thanks a ton, everyone. Most everything mentioned is pretty much what I saw when I watched the video (and Subk, I have watched it in slow motion. And super-super slow motion. And freezed a hundred...

    You don't need to "come up with the excuse," you need to be honest. What are you worried about, hurting her feelings? So long as you're not breaching a contract and you were fair with this month's...
  5. Enthusiastic Jumper Goes Hunter-w/Video

    Hello! I brought my mare off the track when she was 4 and started her in dressage (my old sport of choice). We both started our eventing career together last May when I started working as a student...

    Luvr, I understand where you are coming from when you discuss your concerns about the hay shortage and the surcharge. Been there. Now, my way of thinking is this: when you started boarding there, you...

    I agree with "better safe than sorry." Soak those bad boys.

    I fed my horse cubes without soaking them for over a year, nearly every day. And then one day like any of the others, I fed my mare her...

    Judy, no need to get tender. I was referring to how his "most straight" leg in each photo was the one on the far side, so it's hard to get a good look at the angles and to see if he is in fact under...

    This thread is so much fun! You all have done excellent jobs with your babies- so many fancy ponies here on COTH.

    What is this horse's breeding? Quarter horse? He has a nicely shaped hind end. He looks a little downhill, but he's only 3 so he's likely to grow out of this. The front end is less impressive, in my...

    Overall, he looks well put together. His legs look great and I like where his neck meets his shoulders. His back does look long for my taste, which usually indicates long and weak loins, so I'd give...

    "This is not an 8 minute biscuit!" My trainer yells this when I am communicating something new to my horse and we're struggling. I get the concept of it, "it takes practice," basically, but the 8...

    Another vote for MD HT, what a smooth running show! Middleburg is nice- I think it has a great XC course. I felt like it was the most technical xc course I've ridden this year, for the novice level....

    You don't have enough information here for understanding. What do you mean by "crazy?" And by "pinning her ears," do you mean she does this to people who are just bringing her food?

    I agree with everyone here- stirrups up at least two holes (I prefer my stirrups even shorter cross country than stadium) and when setting up for a combo like the ditch-to-jump, you need to have the...

    It does sound like you (perhaps subconsciously) are not favoring the idea of starting this horse as a hunter.

    In any case, I am placing another vote for dressage. I feel it is always beneficial to...

    Alpha mares are the most likely to have bad herd bound behavior. This is because their mentality is telling them that they have worked hard to stay on top, so they have the most to lose if they have...

    Firstly, not a DQ. Dressage was my first discipline but I have since switched to eventing. Hence why I will not comment on the remarks regarding the dressage phase of eventing.
