    If you don't want to deal with her "craps," don't lease her to campers. What are you expecting? No horse will keep up with her level of training with that much riding by beginners. If you want to...

    Weird. Once we start to ride and groom regularly the arena, we never have any vegetation popping up. How often do you groom?

    Perhaps OP needs to clarify what she means by "bending." The word bending in dressage does not mean lateral work (shoulder in/haunches in/etc). It means proper bending, which occurs even in straight...

    Get your big box setup correctly before worrying the placements of the letters. Make sure your two diagonal lines are the same length. If they are, you know you have a rectangular box. If they...

    Mag Chloride will get washed out, so it's not really viable solution for outdoor. We are going to try ArenaKleen the next. Not cheap, but they seem very...

    Does she know what a 20 meter circle looks like in relation to a dressage arena?

    For example, a 20 meter starting from A will touch both long side, and the final touch point in the center line...

    If your horse gets a flatter trot from bending, either the bending is done incorrectly (very common to over-bend the horse, which then cause the horse to be crooked) or the beautiful suspension you...

    Probably because so many can go wrong, and so few understand how expensive trailers can be. They certainly wouldn't understand that a decent trailer can cost more than a Mercedes. I certainly...

    Yes. You should shoot for one stride before E, so you have time to straighten him, and the shoulder will hit E. You will not get counted against you. It is how experienced riders ride. Essentially...

    Jump ship? Nobody jumps ship, as far as I can tell. We are bunch of jaded old ladies who don't tolerate passive aggressive bullies, and in this case, that would be you.

    Now you may have a bad...

    No.... And here is the reason: the moment you sell it, I bet you that you will have an emergency you need to use the trailer RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT.

    I kind of think that is just one of those ignorant remarks. You admit yourself that before doing dressage, you didn't understand how level and depth of footing impact the riding. It is a fair...

    She asked you to call back. So call back AGAIN. More than likely she is busy with something else. No big deal really.

    A lot of trainers can give excellent lessons while on another horse. However, this requires the right horse for the right reason. It does not sound like your relative's case. Based on your...

    You do dressage, right, Redmond? I'd think 3" to be too deep. For dressage, I think you want to shoot for 1.5"~2" total. If I remember correctly, the recommendation for rubber mixture is 1/4 of the...

    If your sand is loose and unstable, I do have to wonder whether it is the round sand too. If you pick up your sand in your hand, is it "gritty" or is it "rolling around"? You want gritty. With riding...

    In this case, I would suggest you to mark out your "ideal" size and just do the stage 1 I posted. You might be pleasantly surprised how serviceable your native soil might be. As to fence, have the...

    The last time I got bucked off by a horse, I ended up going to an emergency room. My husband had to carry me, as I could not walk, and breathing caused excruciating pain. The nurse took a look at me,...

    I should add that it took me four years to try to find a saddle and failed. It took me two months once I found a good saddle fitter. The two months were used to wait for the arrival of the saddle:)...

    A quick word or two to give an instruction to staff, or a quick "hello" to another student is fine. Socializing is not. You are purchasing her time and knowledge, which means, it is yours during the...
