    I have had many horses on it before while on extended stall rest and rehabbing an injury. NONE had psycho crazy mental reactions either on it or comming off it. Yes there are side effects to most...
  2. This horse is not moving like a hunter.....but I...

    This horse is not moving like a hunter.....but I see that he could have better movement for dressage. He has an amount of suspension and a good push from behind but most of all just a nice rythmn. ...

    I can't tell anything frm the video other than his poor poor tail!

    Cute guy though. Ankle rounding would cause me to xray and flex and see what is going on but isn't as problematic as a bow as...

    I guess I still do not get the issue. People to me are making a bigger deal out of moving up. YES there is a difference. There should be. There should be a difference between all levels. But it...
  6. For me it isn't abou which saddle I feel more...

    For me it isn't abou which saddle I feel more secure in. I'm very "secure" and comfortable in my dressage saddle (as well as my jump). It has to do with how I ride through a buck and how to correct...

    That argument has no merit. The Leasee had the right to consult whomever they wanted. The fact is the contract gave them a right to terminate in their discretion when they made that determination. ...

    Well I am a lawyer. What the OP posted said the Leasee can terminate on 30 days notice when the Leasee DETERMINES the mare can not get in foal. This is very clear languag (of corse depends on the...

    I find it much easier to ride through bucking in a jump saddle. Easier to get off their back and send them forward. Can I stay on bucking in a dressage saddle....sure..although easier if my...

    If she confirms in foal, I would contact the former Leasee. You have no obligation to send him back your mare. If he wants the foal...then he can pay for the costs you have incurred in keeping the...

    I should be clear...if you "fix" or get after anything...it shouldn't be the spook. But if he is leaning on you leg....FIX that. Kick him or use the dressage whip. Just focus on the disobediance...

    Proper counter canter work is a great tool for improving and strengthing a canter. It takes WORK to hold a more collected canter with implusion. For the horse to do it well...it takes core strength...

    Another consideration is balance. You can not have a "collected" canter without it. Can you hold a balanced counter canter?

    A good exercise that we would do with the jumpers was walk, canter 10...

    I actually like his pedigree quite a bit. I'm one that doesn't mind Storm Cat and given the other lines in his pedigree I like him.

    On his conformation picuture...he looks generally fine but like...

    I think it is likely something you are causing but of course check him out medically.

    IME--the more a rider tries to "fix" or "punish" spooking...the worse it will get. They get tense, you get...

    I've seen several AP Indy offspring (grand kids) who are very good movers so would be looking there.

    Secreto is also a very good line for jumping. There have been a few with him up close who have...

    Perhaps some of this depends on where you are located.

    Someone saying My girl or My boy or even My horse ...where I am from that could just be a statement of caring/endearment....that the speaker...

    I agree that when you first move up the goal should not be ribbons but having come from the SJ world, there is a difference with speed in eventing. For xc, it can be as dangerous to go to slow as...

    not going to get into all the is it true or not.....OP, if you want actual advice, stop making excuses. It doesn't matter what he used to do...what matters in now.

    In the picture posted, I see a...

    Oh I'm not arguing that for the Boston location it is wrong to pick Franklin....just more why I'd be slightly more in favor of the DC location which has identified Great Meadows. So they will not be...

    Well as one about to do the move up again with significant gap in time since I last competed at Prelim....I don't think a new division is needed.

    It would NOT be for the PROs as many are...

    Exactly my point. Especially with the threat of always cutting equestrian sports...I'd rather stop making it be so temporary and instead build up an existing facility. As they did for the WEG in...

    Yes perhaps room...but my issue is more that it will be temporary. I'd rather the events be held where we might be able to use the xc and other facilities beyond the games. Just an opinion. ...

    Very well done video! Good job.

    I've read though that Boston is a very long shot. Not sure I love the idea of eventing in Franklin Park. DC looks like it is in the lead.....and proposes...

    The ultrasound let's you know whether it is healed. No active lesion etc. Just gives you information as to the current state. Conformation of the horse is a more likely indicator for whether...
