    It may be an appropriate use in this case, but I have found that ads either list a "prospect" or a "schoolmaster" and there is no apparent in between when it comes to ads - so you have to filter out...

    Yep!

    What do you miss doing where you live? Venice Beach is a biggie to me as far as specific to LA. I love Disney, also Medieval Times. I also go to concerts every time I'm in the area. Even...

    If you maintain bend to the inside, yes. I don't necessarily - some counterbend, some just making the circle smaller through asking for more bend and letting it decrease size by simply making a...

    How do you use rein aids with something fixed and attached to the horse's side? That's the exact reason double longeing can work so well - and the release in correct timing with double reins is...

    I take it the two year old video is appropriate and she's probably coming 3? Not being ridden yet?

    I would want to see something representative of where she is now if buying from out of state. I...

    It would be a no-go for me.

    I bought a 2 1/2 year old who had little done intentionally. It turned out I actually wouldn't have minded her breeder's trainer starting her, but I feel most do too...

    I'm going to start wearing longer spurs on my gelding because it takes near herculean efforts to...

    For a two year old Friesian, I would be thinking he knows more than the people around him about his legs and how it feels on them.

    Pretending he's old enough for the work, with a Friesian, you...

    Just make sure you don't use the clips, as they are not legal for dressage. But otherwise, it makes some changes in how the bridle works on the horse's jaw, and if your horse is comfortable in it...

    Actually, if done *correctly* longeing without side reins teaches a horse to use its body more correctly than longeing with tends to. Either can work well, but a horse will learn how to use itself...

    Interesting. Maybe this is why I prefer sensitive, hot horses.

    On the other hand, nervous horses who are afraid of everything (as opposed to high energy and sensitive horses who may behave as if...

    See, I don't use it and use my filly as part of why - I want the relative engagement to be there. She is regularly schooling movements used in 2nd level, but is around training level. Very green,...

    I tend to get long-winded because it's just not a simple question to answer.

    If I had 5 seconds to answer, I would say I'm schooling 2nd level.
