    I am not asking for help to diagnose or for recommendations as to what type of surgery - that will happen through the guidance of the hospital. I am asking simply to hear what other people's...

    I had a Pablo / TB mare in training for a while. Lovely mover, athletic and sweet. Very nice mare. A joy to ride except that she was EXTREMELY spooky.

    I'm 5'0" and my horse is 18.1" /1600lbs. He is a BIG guy, not just tall. I know that sounds ridiculous, but he is so talented and we get along so well that he has become my heart horse despite our...

    I've never had trouble with creating 'backward thinking' using frequent transitions on a 20m circle (either within or between gaits). I try to think almost of half steps in my downward transitions -...

    I just redyed two dressage saddles with great results. I think with brown instead of black I would send it to a pro, but without a doubt dying mine helped the leather. I used a professional oil based...
