    Remember to breathe!

    Be observant of how things are done on that particular farm and that asking specific questions shows you care. Good luck!

    Friend has an old Tristan with tiny thigh blocks. The twist is narrower which I like. Really like the lack of blocks. Nice saddle but leather feels slippery.

    For horses, Stubbens run narrower,...

    There are probably a number of people who've had bad experiences with CS. The fitter is an important element and one can't fit a horse really well just from measurements and drawings. Horse's backs...

    The problem I have with DC is that they don't list the sessions with the same horse in order. So to follow the training of one horse, you have to kind of guess as the labels aren't always...

    They all have awful back problems. All I can say is ouch.

    Definitely military training. Dang.

    Have to try boots on to see if they fit your foot. So far, I'm a Konig fan though it's the brand that was available at local stores. First pair is extra stiff and are a bit too tall. Very well...

    It's incorrect to say all registries value rideability. They value conformation and gaits but not all view rideability the same or even rate it. Dutch WBs are not put to the same tests for...

    Oh please, stop with the class warfare already. Bad manners and spoiled children run the gambit of class and income. Have you missed toddlers in tiaras?

    Just blame all the hippies who named...

    Brentano II gives super rideability, as in willing partners with good minds. He's considered one of the top stallions in recent breeding history.

    Wanted to add, have heard that Weltmeyers can be...

    Historically, I've found this a problem with the mag's pics, most especially for articles discussing contact and position. Not sure why it's such a problem.

    A rider's leg can't physically drape the same way on a rounder horse. Leg drape depends on rider and horse conformation. A person with wide hips may have drape better on a rounder horse. For most...

    I would really be aware of her back as others have said. My young WB gets especially bouncy when in the midst of growth spurts.

    Honeylips: very nice!

    I think the term cobra braids is a great description. They are different from button braids so using the same term doesn't make sense. I like using CBs on my guy as he has...

    Just curious, but how long are hunter/jumpers usually on their horses for one day of showing? How many classes do they show in per day?

    Remember that dressage is done with contact that is supposed to recycle the horse's energy. In studies, it's said that each rein weighs 20lbs (it's not dead weight so does feel much lighter). So...

    I viewed a horse at Horseconnection. Was a nice horse but not as amateur friendly as advertised. He was a heavy mover and not an easy ride. Honestly couldn't get the horse to trot. Not sure what...

    Beware with the mountain horse firenze and victoria. They run very small in the foot compared to their other boots. Am just returning a pair. Have owned 3-4 pairs over the years and this is the...

    Constantly having "duh" moments. Fix one thing, forget another. Recently realized that my lower leg had gotten noisy. Couldn't figure it out for the life of me till asked trainer. Fixed that in...

    Agree with others. Why bring his head so low? Saw the rein working more on the bars of the horse's mouth which is bad (not that it's harsh, just incorrect) By bringing a horse's head down that low...

    Well, the one time I thought my horse had an issue and the trainer said "aw, he's fine. He's just being stubborn". My horse was diagnosed with a severely pulled back muscle. I had reason to think...

    Not sure what lunging will accomplish here. If the horse is doing SI and HI, then it should have the strength to stretch down and out.

    Better do work on cavalettis to keep the horse up and open...

    Velvet: banning the lowest levels from recognized shows is basically telling people they aren't really riding. Why? What's the point of that? Just to keep them away from more advanced riders,...

    Ok, am wondering if you understand how to ask for stretch?

    On a 20m circle. Soften insider rein, ask for a bit more bend with inside leg at girth, catch with outside rein (it stays steady, maybe...

    Have a smaller version of this. Basically, it's a strength issue for her. You need to develop the stretch and contact. Kind of why I find the stretchy circle in Training level a bit bizarre. It's a...
