I know riders who work hard, have good technical skills, but have no 'feel'
I would say they are competent riders but not 'good' riders.

I use On Course with the front zipper and full seats for everyday schooling. They are very comfortable to wear all day.

I was going to link to a few, but I am out of time.
Go to Nina's Story - link is my signature and look in the left hand column. There are over a hundred horsey blogs listed and about half of them...
Horse Junkies United is reporting that the second jog will be open to the public at the Olympics.
Is this new news?
Yes. They got a chestnut colt. I remember seeing pics of him as a youngster but nothing since.
Thanks, that was a more concise reply than I could come up with.
OP, this is what struck me about your post. You have a bunch of goals, you bought a horse that you thought could do them and then...
Mix some cayenne pepper into some vaseline and smear it on likely grabbing spots on the mask. Make sure where ever you put it that it can't be rubbed onto your horse's skin, eyes etc. A mouthful of...
We have had temps in the hundreds for ...... oh it seems like forever.
Riding becomes more walking, leg yielding, transitions, stretching.
I am going to hose them off today before I tack up. ...
Thanks for this reminder. I usually ride in an IRH, which is so comfortable on me, but 105? This thread reminded me that I have a vented Tipperary in my tack trunk. I will be digging it out this...
I think training and fitness are your two biggest culprits, but he could also be bored. Can you take him out on the trail and encourage him to fly at the trot and see if he wakes up and thinks it is...
Parker should be ok. They are on FB and have a website.
I would pull up the Estes website everyday and see what is going on.
There were some big changes in these fires just today, including a...
At most barn where I have boarded lameness attracts the most attention and some advice. I have never had anyone tell me what 'I should do.' And if I don't want to hear their ideas all I have to do...

18 yr old TB who thinks she is 2.
Some natural supplements from Whole Foods or Natural Grocers.
Slippery Elm Bark (digestion)
Nutritional Yeast (feet and hair)
I agree. I have only attended (briefly) one CA clinic. He was doing a pretty good job of showing a captivated audience how to clean up a horse's face with clippers. I got bored and wandered around...
I love a banged tail, but about the time I decide that no one should ever mess with the top because most of them look 'barbered' I see one that makes me want to find out how to do it so nicely.
That hoof is awful and the shoeing job is nothing to be proud of. Is that the before or after hoof???
