    Thanks guys! Would you mind pming me prices to expect in the area or at these places specifically? Foster Jimenez is right on my way, but I don't want to call if it's way out of my budget!

    You might have to download shockwave or something? Just a guess, though. I don't have a kindle, I've just seen the "puzzle piece" on my computer.

    From your post, OP, it sounded like the problem was both the BO's instructing and the suitability of the horse. If this is the case, you can use the lack of a suitable horse as an excuse to move on...

    I think this program is a great idea! It would need need widespread buy-in and publicity to work. I'm thinking of when my non-horsey parents were looking for a place for me to ride as a child, they...

    This seems to be just like what Dr. Deb Bennett was talking about at the clinic (VOD from USEFnetwork!). She said that confirmation was too often used as an excuse for why a horse wasn't performing...

    Also getting your leg strong and in the correct position should be helpful. Try standing in the stirrups (straight up over the pommel) to get your leg in the correct position. Don't move it when you...
