    I would say that for about 50% of the horses my husband sells, the prospective owner is not present for the PPE. The vet calls them on the phone (but doesn't stay with them on the phone the whole...

    I'll third/second the poles and trails work. Most of the horses we get in at the ranch are started WP and it takes awhile before they want to lengthen. Gradually increasing the space of your trot...

    I'm a back seat rider and driver. I jump with the horse and yell "BRAKE D@MNIT!!!!" to my husband when he drives :lol:

    That sent chills down my spine, but explains what I thought was pretty weird behavior.

    Ugh, this reminds me of a bad experience...

    I have always done HJ shows, but DH talked me into doing an over fences class at an APHA breed show. So I get out in the arena the night before to...

    JB - had that experience about a month ago :(

    We added the first time, so I got her forward and did the line twice correctly, then we tried to add (on purpose this time) and I ticked her off. I...

    Coyotes in my yard!

    OMG there were 5 coyotes in my yard this very sunny morning around 8 am :eek: We just moved to this house a month and a half ago and this is the first time we've seen them, but you always hear them...

    I can tell you what I don't want - a trophy.

    I won one in IEA in high school and was so freaking proud to be the high point rider at the show until I realized that most trophies are super cheap...

    There's some good suggestions on my thread that is loosely related to this one that you might like :)

    ETA: The title is about shortening the stride while maintaining impulsion, but the general...

    What kind of pain were you having? I used to have a lot of trouble with the outside tendon in my calves, but I do well now riding my mare HS Flex stirrups. I still have trouble with my gelding...

    I love that name!

    I guess I'm kind of a rerider... I never stopped riding, but I stopped seriously riding after high school. I leased a horse for awhile in college, took lessons sporadically, then...

    We're working on forward now. No schlepping in the trot or canter, but I could definitely improve on the marching walk :)

    Lessons go very well because I have my trainer making sure we keep...

    Not confused, perfectly aware that we have not achieved a collected canter and have only managed a slow, lazy, sucked back canter when going slow. I've rode packers before who have that awesome...

    I had a naughty spooker in high school. Same ring, same jump, different day, different monsters lurking. I would maintain a tight bend in my warm up. If there was any spook we would circle and then...

    We just started working on counter canter last week. Penny was thrilled with that because we had finally mastered perfect walk to canter transitions and now all of a sudden I was asking her for the...

    On my horse it's all about making sure her shoulder and hip are in the right spots and then asking her to canter. Once she's straight or bent to the inside (if on a circle) I can ask for the canter....

    We do seem to have a lot in common! I feel like when I start my ride I have a good solid leg, but as you mentioned, I think the driving seat is usually the last resort for us chasers because we're...

    Thanks so much for the kind remarks are constructive criticisms! Reins are my constant issue that popped up somewhere in the last 10 years while I played around on trail rides and greenies at the...

    Such great suggestions! It really makes me realize I am jumping ahead of myself and trying to find an easy answer instead of the obvious one - fitness, fitness, fitness!

    So cute!

    Reminds of a photo day we had years ago where we got the best CROPPED picture of one of our geldings. I say cropped because we had to edge out of the pic our WP trainer who was jumping up...

    This minus the snow since I live in GA, has really helped my mare's topline this summer/fall. All of our warm ups consist of a lot of quick transitions - we'll trot for a minute, half halt, walk for...

    I watched that Pony of the Year GP video and was amazed! Tiny ring, tiny pony, GIGANTIC (IMHO) jumps! Dang if only I could ride like that!

    Haha yeah, we have mastered the slow canter... I swear she has aspirations of being a top WP horse... Too bad she jumps too well for that!

  24. Shortening stride while maintaining impulsion

    I have a fabulous coming 6 year old mare that is really coming along nicely. Only my pro has shown her so far, but she got champion at her first show (2'3 greenie division) and I couldn't be prouder...

    I call him by like 5 different nicknames depending on my mood and his attitude, so I'm not sure he even noticed the difference. What really ticked me off was when I went to go pick him up after the...
