    You're right. I tried it out yesterday and I left my hips as is and turned straight on with chest and shoulders.

    If I am going down the long side in shoulder in, my body is still facing straight ahead to the end of the arena just like it would be if we were doing a straight line.

    If I want to begin a...

    I wouldn't mind being required to use a specific vet for real basics, like fecal counts, vaccinations etc. Beyond that I use who I want and I wouldn't board somewhere that tried to tell me otherwise....

    I find lots of transitions with walk, trot, halt and a couple reinbacks really focus my mare's attention as well as getting her forward and working off my seat. By lots I mean 4-6 transitions on each...

    One of my cats had her tail partially degloved when I was trying to close her in a bathroom while getting ready to paint the house. She made a mad dash at the last second as the door was closing...

    The only thing I could see being an issue is if the horses are fed together in a pasture at all different times of the day. If they happen to be feeding at the same time you come in you will either...

    I would keep looking if I were you. Don't feel pressured by anyone, including a trainer, to get a larger/more expensive/bigger movement/specific breed. This horse is for you to ride and enjoy. Not...

    Curious to hear what you guys think of Mister X at this year's World Cup. He was one of my favorites. While I didn't think they had any chance of winning, I still thought they were underscored.

    I was going to suggest Renew Gold but see it's already been listed.

    You could also look at Cool Stance, which is made entirely of coconut.

    This happened downtown, mid day, on a Thursday. Probably not the best place to discharge a handgun, even to end the horse's suffering.

    The specific area is right next to several government...

    I have used cavaletti often both under saddle and on the lounge, though I'd like to use them more than I do. They're just a pain to setup and I often can't use them unless I want to drag them in from...

    This is what I was most irritated about. You send me a $10 gift code to use by 12/31/15 1 day after I placed what will probably be the one order I will do all month (because of the 15% off sale)? The...

    Need Help Choosing Hoof Boots

    I have a mare that is barefoot currently and needs some support for the first few days after a trim due to thin soles. Shoes have not been helpful in the past as she also has thin walls that shoeing...

    ^I was thinking the same thing but the fact that the vehicle rolled several times made me wonder if it's possible to be ejected even with a seat belt on. A quick search on Google shows that yes, it...

    Without the prior surgery I'd say $5k around here, assuming the things you said about him are true (flashy, refined and good gaits). Would be higher if he was a couple years younger or was at least...

    I've never much cared for the way Gal trains his horses. They're obviously talented horses and he is such a quiet rider. But I don't like the way they move. It's exaggerated and unnatural looking to...

    Totally agree with this. The last lesson horse I used frequently I would hand graze before and after rides as often as possible so he got some kind of enjoyment out of our time together. I would...

    I'm nth-ing Anne Gribbons. I was only an auditor but she's been the best so far. Even when she was giving strong criticism to the rider she did it in a friendly and humorous way that I would have...

    On the days I would rather just go home I make myself go out anyway and at least tack up and get on the horse. Once I've made it that far I'm quite content to continue riding just like any other day....

    I also obessesed over the USG pads but I've found that the one I bought faded very badly. It was the lake blue color. No it's almost pastel blue/green.

    I like the PRI pads but I'd like something...

    The last barn I was at always skimped on shavings. They would put a lot in the stall so it would be good for a few days. But they waited so long in between adding shavings that the stall didn't have...

    The pictures of foal twins always drives me nuts. While it's not always the owner's fault, it usually is.
