    Are there other changes going on in your life that are worrying you? Sometimes we project our fears onto our riding.

    It does not sound like a good fit. That's neither a problem with you or the...

    That's a good question for a TD. I have never seen anyone show in split reins, and I also agree that continuous and uninterrupted means they are not split. Having run into poorly written rules and...

    Joe will get extra hugs and cookies. So sorry for your bad week, tallyho. It's Monday, here's hoping to a better week.

    The Odd Couple

    Our Corgi Joe has taken a shine to the ancient mini Suzy. He leads her to back yard where she can take in some extra calories, spends the day with her in the backyard, then takes her back to her...

    Honestly, I use the bulletin boards as my journal for several reasons. I can post pictures and video. They are dated. They are easy to search, especially if I keep all the logs under each horse's...

    At least 10 years ago, I was having trouble in counter canter with my Andalusian. He would try to swap if I made even a single move, or even breathed. Someone named Suzy told me to counterflex him in...

    Clearly, you are both wrong. Dressage is neither about mechanical precision nor artistic feeling. It's about competition. It is clear that Suzy is so competitive she is creating her own movements,...

    When the rules are unclear, then there is a greater opportunity for an officious judge or TD to eliminate you. I have been eliminated for a clothing issue before. It's $300 to file a complaint, even...

    For some reason we had a ton of small white plastic supplement buckets, with plastic handles. We talked about stencils but found a handy mom to spray paint (in red) the letters on the bucket.

    I think Larkspur is doing an exemplary job of riding back to front.

    Lost at C, a nice title for the book might be "What the Hell is Happening and How Am I Supposed to Ride It?"

    First I must ask if I may critique. Even though I can't see the earrings, I have an opinion on them.

    Now I want to discuss the philosophy and methods of riding up in heaven, but not really your...

    Ok, a trainer wears top of the line, but well worn breeches and boots. Usually a baseball cap. Trainers drive large trucks capable of pulling multiple horses at one time. They drive them everywhere....

    I am one who pulled the Dee out by grabbing the strap in a...

    In my experience, if all we look for is the bad and the mistakes then that is all we learn to see. If riders intend to use videos to improve their eye, then they need to look for the positives as...

    I was standing with a sales horse in the arena, showing him to a prospective buyer. As soon as the buyer said, "I am really interested," Tex dropped to his knees and began to colic.

    Back in the 60s and maybe later it was considered gauche to wear anything sleeveless to work. And no bear legs except with shorts, always pantyhose.
