    Total horse slut here - lost count at 278. Mom and Dad never bought me a horse, so lessons, catch riding, sales barns, a military career, etc - yeah, it adds up. I'm now happy to own two and they...

    I struggled and still struggle with this issue! I rode babies for YEARS, and on a long rein, I did a lot of inviting/reminding, etc. I always used my legs/seat first, but I am always told I have...
  3. I had the Ovation Evolution, bought based on...

    I had the Ovation Evolution, bought based on extensive research and nothing but glowing reviews. However, it does NOT fit my OTTB regardless of gullet plate - not the right K panel/skidrow panel...
  4. One saddle for two horses - holy grail easier to find?

    I own a TB and a QH x Andy (PRE). The TB is my primary hunter but the cross loves to jump so we play with low level stuff. I recently had a saddle fitter out and none of my jumping saddles fit! My...
  5. Thanks guys! I'm heading to Equine Affaire...

    Thanks guys! I'm heading to Equine Affaire tomorrow and doing some shopping with these ideas:) And yes, to both crab and mvp - when a horse is truly bolting from fear, the textbook pulley rein will...
  6. I truly appreciate everyone's inputs. This...

    I truly appreciate everyone's inputs. This format is sometimes so limited - I could write a novel on the training journey with this boy. I've had him 7 years now. He was an unhandled stallion the...
  7. Thanks for all the suggestions! I am only...

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I am only showing at a local schooling circuit currently, but they follow USDF guidelines. He actually does try to bolt at times when showing - last year, the judge...
  8. Bit recommendations for horse that can bolt but evades behind the bit

    I have an Azteca rescue gelding that is very cute for dressage, but due to his lack of upbringing, we still deal with some fear issues. He's getting better - I am taking him out a lot - but in the...
  9. The dreaded saddle fit questions - jump saddle that fits like Passier GG for OTTB

    Well, I had a saddle fitter out, and I need a new jumping saddle! My OTTB mare has the high withers but well-sprung ribs and short back shape. There was an M. Toulouse that fit, but not sure of the...
  10. My parents were great about letting me ride, but...

    My parents were great about letting me ride, but refused to buy a horse for me. I knew early on I loved dressage - the idea of doing those movements fascinated me, and in my teen years, was...

    I have a KK Ultra loose ring for my dressage bridle and a Dynamic RS D-ring for my hunter bridle for my sensitive TB mare. She goes well in both, she may prefer the RS slightly - not a major...

    When I broke a rib forever ago, I had just been learning about leg yields. I got a huge gymnastic ball and placed it on a really old weight bench between the arms that held the bar overhead. That...

    Thanks guys! I ordered the book:). I'm really excited to see what new things I can do with my critters from the ground - I am genuinely happy to shift gears and expand my training repertoire!
  14. Work in-hand and long lining - ideas?

    I will be out of the saddle for hopefully 9 months (fertility issues, etc, but hopeful!). I am so fortunate to have two horses and a few folks helping keep them in work, but I want to use this time...

    Read most posts, but not all, so apologies if this was already said. I think one of the real issues in the US is that we don't really have a lot of trainers who do it all - how many top GP trainers...

    Can't say enough about how great last clinic was - great teacher, great facility and great folks! I skipped some shows to sign up for more rides this time:). And I learned a ton auditing the other...

    I've visited and called all the area barns and narrowed it down to the two with the most pros vs. cons with openings for my two. I have to really consider location as my husband is disabled, so I...
  18. BO divorcing - stay or go? (a bit long)

    Our BO just revealed she and her DH will be divorcing. Details are between them, but a third party was involved, so things could get ugly. Right now, both say they want to dissolve and not lose...

    I laughed about the scary tree for the desert horses! I moved horses from TX and CA to Ohio. There is no such thing as fall out there. Nor are there trails through tunnels (trees with leaves). ...

    My Azteca just gets lots of attention and questions - he's buckskin tricolor pinto who was cut late, so huge neck which is flattered by his mohawk. He's like a celebrity with all the gawkers! My...

    I have the Ovation Evolution, and LOVE it!!! Schneider's even has financing. They have other brands, too, so expands your options.

    Reinforce the voice aid on the lunge, then use it while riding and using the canter aids. But first, check saddle fit. If he won't canter under saddle, could be saddle. Also, have trainer make sure...

    Thanks guys for the input! Sounds like it is fairly normal, and after the complete vet workup we did, I don't worry about it being something really problematic, just seems like it'd be uncomfortable...
  24. Persistent swelling in sheath due to bug bite a year ago???

    Last year my gelding's sheath BLEW UP in July. We treated with Dex twice, cold-hosed, etc. We did extensive bloodwork for anything systemic, including metabolic issues or lyme, etc (all normal), and...

    Not at all! I thought I was weird due to my military career. My parents also never bought a horse for me, so I rode lots of different horses. It's great to ride lots of horses in many ways, but...
