    No shame, none at all, in taking a few steps back, and taking your time to move forward at your own pace. He may be sensitive, he may be talented, but he's also yours, and how and whether or not you...

    My question was half-facetious, though I did not realize that it was possible to fit that many on one plane (just never thought about it).

    Thank you all. We have a lovely hunter pace series in my area and I've really wanted to go. But my riding time is limited and both of my guys are in their 20s now. One is reasonably fit, but he has...

    I use them exactly that way--under shavings, and I do not wet them first, just let the urine do the job. I pick my stalls twice a day and my horses have in/out access, so not like if the horse is...

    I second giving him the benefit of the doubt. If it becomes a repeated behavior, then that's a different issue, but if it's a one time thing, you should perhaps re-think trusting his judgment a...

    Is Waynesville too far for you? Know of a place that will do a great job with confidence issues, will develop a good independent seat, is very laid back, but does not have access to a lot of trails.

    Are you sure this is scratches? Might it be cannon keratosis? Especially during shedding season, cannon bones tend to get yucky looking, but my take on it is that many of us are bad about shedding...

    Not even bad day at the office--more unlucky weather. I think both of those horses might have done well in better conditions. Really unusual conditions for this level of competition.

    All of the pictures of squamous that I can find indicate that it starts as a small lump and/or has a raised, rough-looking surface. Also, it looks very pink rather than white.

    When I go to that link, it's still stuck on WFP being in the middle of his dressage test. Don't get the final standings for the day :(

    I also thought Steffen's test was more accurate than Laura's, which counts at that level. Very small things--losing the outside haunch momentarily in a corner, a bit disorganized at the start of the...
