    Have you considered spending a few days in Ireland? It's a quick, cheap flight from England and the place is crawling with super nice horses. I may be biased though as this is what we did and where...

    Love love love the Cocosoya!! They make a powdered form that my horse gets in his smartpaks. I've heard that the powder isn't as good as the oil, but it keeps weight on my guy and his coat is slick...

    I agree with PonyPenny. Either he's hurting somewhere or has just decided it's ok to ignore you. If you've ruled out pain as the cause then it's time to start looking at training issues. It sounds...

    You guys look like a great team and I think everything your coach said sounds right on!! You look pretty solid in the tack from what I could see. The only suggestion I might have is to stretch up and...

    Every instructor I've ever ridden for has had me sign a hold harmless agreement which makes them not responsible for accidents. I'm assuming that this is common practice, right?

    I'm also a...

    When I was treating my guy, I used one of the big syringes and just squirted it in his mouth (like you would a dewormer). It seemed to be the easiest and quickest way to administer the meds. Mine got...

    I prefer Chatt for several reasons over Poplar. The courses tend to be a bit bigger in the fall, but I think they flow really well. Poplar is sort of a crap shoot in my opinion. You could end up...

    It sounds like you've made a great start!! My first question is how big is the ring that you're cantering her in? Sometimes if the ring is on the smaller size, it's hard for an unbalanced horse to...

    Hunter is doing well!! They got his face stitched up and x-rayed and ultrasounded the hurt leg. At this point they're seeing no broken bones and mostly just muscle/soft tissue damage. The tendons and...
  10. Guys, I'm really sorry that this got so...

    Guys, I'm really sorry that this got so controversial. That wasn't my intent. We were all just very upset that this happened. I tried very hard to not post speculations and just keep it at the facts...

    I'm hopping over from the eventing world so I don't ride straight dressage, but I do know that dressage helps our jumping immensely. I don't so much think that dressage work is used to develop...

    Susan was so grateful for everyone's support!! I think everyone is right in saying that we'll probably never know exactly what happened. It was interesting because today we pulled up a google earth...
  13. Regardless of what happened, she's just so happy...

    Regardless of what happened, she's just so happy to have found him in more or less one piece. She was so touched by the willingness of complete strangers to help. She said the lady stabled across...

    My guy had a complete sever of his right hind extensor from a trailer accident. Exactly one year later he was back out eventing. He just had to figure out how to move without it, and once he did he...

    My trainer just got home a little while ago and I was able to speak to her some more. She said she had two of the rubber chain type stall guards behind one of the big square ones. She also said there...

    Hmmmm, that's definitely an interesting piece of information. I would also prefer it to be an escape instead of an attempted theft.
  17. Yes, it's the same horse. He's a super cool...

    Yes, it's the same horse. He's a super cool animal. My trainer evented up through the 3 star level many years ago, and as she got older and started a family her desire to compete at the upper levels...

    I've thought about the security issues many times over the past several years with so much tack being stolen. It seems like it would be well worth it to these facilities to hire night security.

    Yes, we're all VERY happy he was found!! She bred this horse herself, and he's been her pride and joy for 15 years. They're headed to the vet now to hopefully find out what's going on with his right...

    My trainer was at a dressage show at the North Alabama Agri Business Center in Rainesville, AL this weekend. Last night someone attempted to steal her horse from the show facility. Someone staying on...

    That's very exciting for him!! As a hardcore Auburn Tiger, I also have to give a shoutout to Greg Robinson and Tre Mason who were also drafted by the Rams. They picked up some serious talent this...

    Another vote for the Kerritt's Crossovers. I absolutely love them and they've been flattering on everyone I've seen in them. Also, for what it's worth, I wear the beige for dressage at events and...

    The D ring is just going to be a little more stable in the mouth since the mouthpiece is fixed to the ring. I find that the loose rings are more "talkative" bits, if that makes sense. When your hand...

    The path is in the woods between the road and the Mulberry Pond. It connects the front field to the back field. Training used to run through there and jump out of the woods over the saw jump. The...

    We had a girl from our barn in the Open Training division. She's ridden up through the 2 star level and the horse she was on is a green but very talented and brave TB. She said that the championship...
