    I've had no problems with the feed, Steffen Peters is warming Revel up in the ring now. And it is super cool that they are giving comments after the tests, really trying to educate the public and...

    not a full bridle, but I have a wellfleet figure-8 and the fit is great, the buckles are up where they belong (not across the lips at all) and the disk, while padded with sheepskin, is nice and subtle

    boucher or full cheek with keepers and a flash solved my guy's problems. He would mouth the bits so much and then fling his head at the slightest thing because of it. A stubben double jointed boucher...

    I have a young(isn) horse who is on his second season of eventing and moving up to training so he still needs a lot of in the ring schooling. Generally I aim for 3-4 flat and hack combos, start with...

    I love my premier equine kevlar open fronts. They clean up really nicely and the straps are wide enough for me to not worry about using them (the equifit's straps were super narrow on my set). I only...

    I second (and third) all of the advice, especially about a routine. It definitely takes a while to find something that works, my young horse and I are still trying to figure something out that works....

    My boy is extremely sensitive (especially for a gelding, think mare sort of reactivity) and I struggled for a long time to find something that worked.

    Something to note about lyme is that it has a 3 week cycle, meaning if you don't get it at the right moment you have to wait another 3 weeks to really get it again, even if there are symptoms (the...

    looks like a makeshift nose rope, similar to the mikmar combo bits. When the rein attached to the string is pulled it first applies nose pressure and then curb pressure as it pulls back the shanks....

    I second the idea of it being you. It is so so easy to make a small mistake over and over again and eventually the horse gets sick of it. It is probably something really subtle and could have been...

    The shape of the mikmar mouth piece is actually very mild, especially the curved one, as it is light and has a wide area of pressure on the tongue so not as sharp as a thinner snaffle and very gentle...

    I barely do a warm-up on my guy, walk for a while then w/t/c to make sure all my transitions are there. I generally also have to spice him up a bit with some counter canter to get him really in front...

    Something else to add (I'm fine with schooling in a bit they respect so that the training can be installed ext) is that those links are really wide. Unless your horse's mouth is huge, the joint will...

    The thing that I've found that helps the halt (and the walk/free walk) the most, no matter the horse, is do do it as a reward during your ride. Have a good bit of canter? halt and pat and walk off,...

    My biggest advice is listen, and do exactly what he says. He really doesn't like it when people don't do things the moment he says something or they waste his time, which is completely understandable.

    If you ever get the chance, do it! Or even just audit. He really does a good job of talking to the auditors (as long as there is a PA system) and he has so much to share.

    Bernie came and did a clinic at my college this weekend and I was lucky enough to have my mom bring my horse (and hers) out for it. It was a fantastic weekend and I wanted to share my report on it.
