    I never could get it from various descriptions. Finally a trainer finally said "use all your senses, listen to the footfalls". Once I started listening, my rate of getting the right diagonal without...

    I'm the opposite. With my L3/4/5-SI disc issues, I find that dressage is more comfortable, sitting up more vertically is more comfortable. When I do use my jump saddles, I still end up more vertical...

    So far, one is all misshapen, I guess the 160F water, measured with the kitchen thermometer was too hot...perhaps I needed a perfectly calibrated lab thermometer. That one is warped all over. ...

    I'm on my second trailer with an aluminum floor. I have not added a spray in liner, there are rubber mats on the floors.

    I have a couple of the winter toasties, and while they were warm, they did not hold up well. The inner thighs on one pair was see through, so I tossed those (see through and toasty rarely go...

    I wanted to want a Deere, but then I went and drove one. Most uncomfortable 10 minutes driving a tractor ever. Even with the seat adjusted forward, I could still barely reach the pedals. I quickly...

    You should do a PPE, he is too old to insure, so anything that requires diagnostics will be 100% out of pocket.

    I have not ever done a PPE, but I tend to buy yearlings, I almost did one on my...

    I like Drs. Nolan or Anikis at Piedmont Equine Practice. I know most of the vets there and all are good, but those two are the ones I go to for sport horse lameness stuff.

    I'm not sure how...

    I saw several of them being ridden while being filmed by USEF. What I saw, I liked.

    One thing I noticed, most of the mediums in 2nd level were on 3/4 diagonal, from a corner letter to the...

    High definition, high speed photography and video are to blame, IMO.

    When the old dead guys were alive & training, they were documented with terrible quality video and photographs, and those are...

    If you did it yourself, renting the equipment, around here, you'd be close to $1000 in supplies and equipment rental, add in the aggravation factor, aka time and manual labor, or breaking through the...

    At some point in life, everyone comes across the horse that is too much for them, at that point in time.

    Even the professionals usually have someone else to call in when a horse is not working...

    Maybe 30ish as an adult, and if you take out the one or two lessons or trail rides on other people's horses, that drops down to 15 or so.

    My ride...

    I didn't vote, because the options make it sound like the barn vet is mandatory.

    I have a 7 stall barn, but only keep 6 horses. 2-3 are usually boarders. I do have my vet practice and my...
