    I think we'd first need to define "round". IOW, what are the limits when we're talking about "roundness". Is an RK horse round, and can he collect when he's round in that way? Is a Baucherized...

    There are of course, degrees of submission. Those who want to win comps, or get nervous if their horse canters when they wanted him to trot, will want a greater degree of submission than someone who...

    They're not timid when it comes to varmints, and some aren't timid at all, but the ones that wheel away every time something spooks them can be quite the challenge, because they don't stop when they...

    [QUOTE=GoForAGallop;7800421]I find this to be a very odd post. It is nothing like I have heard from any other mule owner, and I'd be curious to know if you have experience with mules outside of the...

    Seems like a bad idea to me, too. If a horse is afraid of my mule I get him out of sight as quickly as I can, because the last thing I want to do is bring my mule to a horse show (even when I'm...

    Mules love to be around horses because Mom was a horse, but they're timid animals, which not only makes them submissive to horses, but is one of the issues behind many of the training problems we run...

    And unless his job is going to change once you start working with him, you may have limited "success" at tuning him up when he just goes right back to his usual job in between.

    I also question...

    I'm not easily grossed out, but a jar full of pus would do it because it's not interesting, but just gross! Although if it was a really large amount of pus from one abscess, that might be...

    Agree, because our two at least, are a challenging combination of emotionally sensitive and physically insensitive. IOW, they're afraid of everything, and there isn't a bit made that'll slow them...

    Here in New England the footing is a much bigger problem than the short days, because if it's dark out it only takes one little light to be able to see well enough to ride.

    Are you actually talking about a spur stop or a leg/weight stop? If a spur stop why would you be wearing spurs (or consider wearing spurs) if your legs get tight?

    If the buyer had already paid for the horse wouldn't that mean that the seller had already received the money for him, so was already protected against any loss? I could understand wanting the buyer...

    I have a clunky old video tracker that whirs as it turns, and none of mine have been bothered by it. And they're spooky horses who are bothered by a piece of paper on the mounting block, or a sun...

    Because I think one can have a fluid transition (canter flowing into trot) without it being fluent. Fluent, in behavioral jargon anyway, means that the subject can perform the behavior easily. So...

    Fluent, I think, is a learning theory term that means "easily". IOW, the subject can produce the behavior easily and perform it well, so he's fluent in that behavior. Fluidity may be part of what...

    Possibly, except I find the jargon so poorly defined and so often counter-intuitive that I've had a lot of trouble learning what the words actually mean. Part of the problem is that there are so...

    Yes, finally, someone who gets that "forward" is not a good description of what trainers use it to mean.

    If the meaning of a word is only clear to those who already know that it doesn't mean...

    Two cameras, one at each end. I bought one camera new, but then paid less than half for the same camera used, since I didn't feel like I needed two dependable cameras.

    Just to cut to the chase, I agree that you should be worrying about your retirement instead of putting it into any dream, futile or not.

    However, that said, you may not need to sell your horse...
