    The only weanling I have ever bought made me fall in love with him because:
    1. He was by a sire I adored (Popeye K)
    2. He moved a "12" -- seriously, he was a freak.
    3. When they made a tiny...

    Is the problem physical or behavioral?

    OP,

    This man lives in my area and does craniosacral work on horses. I know that he went to seminars to learn it, so there must be a group of people who perform/teach this method of helping...

    First, why doesn't he have his changes? Have you or a trainer tried to teach him in such a way that he must understand what he is being asked to do?


    But, since for whatever reason he hasn't...

    OP: I have no idea who your trainer is, or what catches her eye, but be aware that a horse which has won at 3'6" may not be a good option for you.

    That's because good 3'6" horses might jump...

    Hmmmmmm. This sounds different from what I was envisioning. I thought he just went batshit all at once. But now I see that it is sort of a 3 step progression:
    1. he loses focus

    Nutrition aside (for the moment), you cannot evaluate the true cost of a bale without knowing the weight of each bale.

    Better to ask the cost of a ton. Then the size of each bale becomes...

    I hear you loud and clear about not wanting to put him down.....
    BUT, IMO, that is not how you need to look at that option.

    Try to put yourself in your horse's position. If his behavior comes...

    Just curious --- Do patents give the patent holder internation protection? Since these are Swedish bridles, wouldn't they be exempt from a US patent?

    Can't be a lot of help with barns in those cities, but it might be fun for you to go to USHJA (hunters/jumpers) USEA (Eventing) or USDA (Dressage) and look up show schedules in each city.

    If you...
