    Yes, I agree that notifying a master is the correct approach and preferably in private at a later time. But sometimes there IS an immediate threat and the master is not accessible. Are there any...
  2. Spinoff: Safety concerns - what to do?

    We all seem to agree that safety is paramount and that much of etiquette is really about safety. I'm sure most of us have seen unsafe situations. It can be awkward to try and do anything about...

    At least get the owner to teach you how to use a "pulley rein." This should give you an emergency brake.

    Is he pushy when you are working with him on the ground, too?

    WD:

    "I personally am more annoyed with . . . "

    Yes, but speaking for myself, it's more rewarding to shrug it off and enjoy the day. If I could make it all "perfect" I would, but I won't let...

    As far as written rules of attire are concerned, I think there's more variability these days. Regarding helmets specifically, I think some hunts would rather see riders in approved helmets than hunt...

    Let's estimate - riding 56 years - first few and some in the middle perhaps only 2 or 3 per year but average I'd guess conservatively 5, so that would put it around 250 - wayyy too many to count. ...

    Another strategy - put in a second gate, let the mud pit dry up THEN regrade and add porous material (gravel, dust). Alternate use of the two gates as necessary.

    If you have a very calm horse that the youngster already knows and likes, then trailer with company.

    What I usually do is this, then drive to an abandoned parking lot about 5 minutes away, park,...

    You might be able to inject some 3-in-1 using a needle and syringe. Small gauge needle would not make much of a hole in the rubber.

    Just a thought.

    Try getting in touch with the person who organized the Martin Black clinic last spring. They had cow work in the morning and there were definitely some experienced local folks there (at Frying Pan...

    I always thought it came from race jockeys, whose body/head position is more horizontal and thus the brim would impede vision if it were "down."
  13. Are you somewhere with access to trails? If so,...

    Are you somewhere with access to trails? If so, put some front shoes on and take lots of quiet trail rides with a steady friend. Show her everything you can while staying safe. Creeks, logs,...

    Try feeding her a hoof supplement with a high biotin content (if vet says okay for yearling). The biotin always seems to go to manes and tails on my horses more than feet :-)!

    This may sound silly, but it can work and it's easier and safer than a hinged cast! LOL

    You know those fat rubber bands that come on bundles of mail or newspapers? Take several of those and make...

    I agree about having both feet out of stirrups to dismount from an english saddle, BUT my cowboy friends have explained that in a western saddle, this can be a death sentence. IF you happen to catch...

    If she get's nervous hearing other horses being shod, then start by taking a spare shoe and have someone else hammer on it while you are doing something she enjoys (grooming?). Then proceed by...

    If I'm reading the pedigree correctly, Shamwari 4 appears to be half thoroughbred at least. Can't tell on Trading Aces, but some TB definitely there (back to Nasrullah).

    Not that I've heard. She does have a new personal residence but to my knowledge the training facility is staying put. Easy enough for OP to verify.

    I am on year five with my Farmtek fans. I have the 18" ones mounted on 2x6s on the trusses above the stalls and aimed at the walls. I have them set on medium because high setting is too...

    Just out of curiosity, how many of those dressage scores would likely be competitive at WEG, based on recent international event results?
  23. How do you keep grazing muzzles clean?

    I've been using grazing muzzles for years and put a lot of effort in to keeping them clean and dry. Just wondering if you have secret techniques that work really well. Mostly elbow grease for me.

    Has he ever been really fit before? In my experience, horses that were fit and have had a layoff tend to come back into shape more easily that those that have never really been fit before (even if...
