    No conspiracy theories, Carolinadreaming, she just generally gives me that nipples-through-a-cheese-grater feeling.

    Caballus, as someone who doesn't give a rat's ass if I'm banned from COTH, can I take this opportunity to tell you to go f@ck yourself? You are the biggest waste of oxygen I've encountered on the...

    Oh for crying in a bucket, I can't believe that the Mods banned Thomas! What a short-sighted and thoroughly immature response to what was clearly a well-earned Thomas-slap.

    Tom died a few years ago. I met him on Ridecamp and was also a member of his Horse Science list. I adored the man, and still believe that he and Jaye Perry are the reason my Barney is alive and well...

    Just a quick FYI, I doubt that they were alligators. There are no alligators in Africa.

    We do, however, have crocodiles.

    Frankly, I just prefer "Ma'am".

    "God", apparently, is taken.

    NOM, not going forward isn't always a rider error. It may be, but not always.

    Some horses are simply less forward than others. Less reactive. If the rider doesn't do something to instill...

    Nomi person, why do you think that getting out of an arena won't help with forward? I've found it helps tremendously, because having the time and space to allow a horse to move forward, without...

    Forward first. Reactive off the leg and FORWARD, FORWARD, FORWARD.

    Why anyone would even bother with concepts like half halts (or even having the horse on any kind of contact) until she's forward...

    Absolutely, Thomas. "Rescuing" is jolly hard work. I don't for an instant call myself a "rescuer", all I am doing at the moment for the horses in my care is fostering them. I have undertaken to...

    Can I take this ever-so-slightly off topic? I have recently done some rehabbing work for a Rescue organisation - from taming horses who were untouchable to backing them, feeding them up, getting...

    I've often wondered why people want fancy show names. We had a horse called Little Red Devil, whose stable name was "Harry". As he was neither little, nor particularly devilish, when it came time...

    DA, you're putting the cart before the horse. They haven't said that hyperflexion IS, by definition, achieved through excessive force, they've said that, IF you achieve that position through...

    There is STILL no rule against "extreme prolonged hyperflexion", as I read the press release.

    As long as it is achieved without "undue force", it's all right.
