    You must insist that the horse goes forward, forward, forward. Not just faster but coming from behind.
    There's several exercises to use to encourage the horse to 'trust the hand', as long as you...

    There's a lot of good, professional trainers out there. Dressage has been around for a long time and it's not that elitist anymore.

    When we were kids we used to ride to the horse shows. Sometimes 5 or 6 miles. I think it would be good for your horse as long as your trainer is reasonable about breaks in the lesson.

    I teach all my horses to park out or at least stand square. From the ground I tap the ankle with my foot or whip and use a voice cue "come up". From the saddle it's usually a tap with the toe behind...

    I was there in the 70's and early 80's too. Was it Dr. Marty? Developers have been salivating over that property for as long as I can remember so even if it made money I'm sure someone would find a...

    Sorry you've gotten no comments. I'm glad you figured out that your saddle doesn't fit and don't think getting it "refitted" is going to do it. I would look around for different saddle. Do you have a...

    I've done something like this. I hold a hoof pick up while grooming and when the horse swings around he pokes himself in the neck. If a stud chain is used correctly one or two quick jerks, reenforced...

    Actually, I think sorrels (chestnut if you're with your english friends, lol) like grays, can look good in just about any color so pick one you like. I personally like navy blue.

    I have a horse like this. He gets super bored in the arena and is most happy exploring new territory. I try to ride him out to an outside area and do arena work there as much as possible or trailer...

    I had a Barefoot London and didn't care for the super long flaps (this was the old style) and it felt more like a...
