    It's not pathetic. It just is what it is. There are plenty of people who don't compete at all, or very rarely, because of the logistical and financial challenges of the way their area works. Would it...

    My guy is 19 and retired from competing with me because he had several soft tissue injuries, and the vet felt he should stick to novice and below.

    Doesn't sound like anything bit related - if he accepts contact and rider is soft with her hands. If she completely floats the reins to over and after the fence does it change anything?

    With the colic surgery, I would find out what the horse's circumstances were when he colicked (how many hours turnout, what feed, travelling frequency, etc) and what the surgical findings were. Then...

    I don't see that WE need to justify the COTH board. It is what it is - open to all who follow the basic etiquette guidelines, home to great advice, mediocre advice, support, the occasional troll,...

    Another vote for Jerry's. I have a really nice monocrown with plain noseband, with their detachable flash (comes with a little loop that just slides off when you don't need it). Works great for my...

    MKV, unless I missed something, the AECs will ALWAYS be relatively close to you. They decided to hold them permanently in Texas. I think it stinks, personally. There is NO place in the US where we...

    I should say that he has tried a tiny miny version of the tantrum once or twice on the flat, in the field, and, prior to the big tantrum school, when schooling ditches but AFTER jumping them.
    So it...

    Beowulf, we are blessed to have a whole xc course at home, including two very friendly fake ditches. He will trot and canter back and forth over those without batting an eye. Has done for a year....

    Thanks, skydy. First three pics in the "little brother" link in my sig are from yesterday. The galloping pic was right after the ditch (they didn't actually photograph the ditch, just as well...) and...

    My horses live out with about 20 others in a 70 acre field 45 minutes from my house. It's a great place with natural terrain and woods for shelter and a shed. Plus a super place to board for me.

    MVP. Spot on.
    Yeah.

    So, for the record, he propped a few strides out when he realized there was a ditch, and then started a tantrum-esque response. I tried to insist he go anyway but was losing...

    Full moon's are scary and I haven't tried them yet. We were at Seneca, and they have a nice solid, clear, flat approach novice ditch. Not particularly scary.

    Definitely too forward not a good idea...

    Don't worry, guys, I won't look IN the ditch. I got that memo a while ago.

    Bornfree, thanks a lot. All the advice about how to approach the actual ditch is good reinforcement for what I've been...

    Yes, I am certain I contribute tension, although after jumping ditches 15 times yesterday I am a little bit more relaxed.

    I will try REALLY hard to forget the tantrum and hope he has too. ...
