    Depending how far south "South Bay" you are, you could check out:

    I have not been there myself because I now live in the East, but I've heard good things.

    If you're talking about rides in Florida, I would guess that the terrain would be mild and not highly variable. So, you need to find out the distances and approximate speeds of the paces and build...

    Identical concept to the "swing-arm" dryers shown above, I take a short piece of 2x4 and mount it to the wall with a strong hinge. Scrap lumber, hinges and screws are economical and work just fine. ...

    After seeing the video, it appears that the rider's hands pop the horse's mouth 2-4 strides after each jump. The horse curls its head in anticipation of the pop and only when that doesn't change...

    Can't speak about yoga, but be careful with the pilates specifically as regards "neutral back" position. A rider's neutral back position is different from what most pilates people think it is. You...

    Weixiao -

    Most folks recommend against boots because of the potential for them to collect dirt and/or to loosen and cause a problem. If she's not used to them and doesn't interfere, I definitely...

    Mardi:

    What I thought I saw in the first canter pic was that the dark leg's hoof (in the air) looks to have a higher heel and slightly steeper angle. I think I see it in the outdoor conf photo...

    Lovely horse.

    A question for you experts - does it look to you like his hind hooves are different, or is the color difference making it appear so? I noticed it in the first canter pic and then...

    This is a fascinating book, though highly technical in parts. Dr. Peters is a neuroscientist and rider. There is a lot of discussion of the differences between horse and human brains and thinking....

    When you've got to go, you've got to go.

    The tricky part is finding a place and time that will avoid all field members and staff (and poison ivy)!

    GOOD POINT and - to build on that theme,

    Horse should approach and receive or return flasks smoothly and stand perfectly while rider takes a swig and/or replaces the top!

    WD:

    "One veteran told me recently that he likes to hunt old horses."

    There's something to be said for longevity.

    "it's a marvelous mane for grabbing ahold of in a tricky moment"

    A professional trainer worth his/her salt will check out the physical issues with a vet they know and trust, and keep...

    OandO - Good point and on the mark. I am confident that many more hunt field concerns are whispered among other field members than are given full voice, even after the fact. That is part of the...

    I second Carol Ames' recommendation of Feldenkrais, but I would say you should plan for more than one lesson. If you can find the right instructor, your body mechanics will change remarkably and...
