    I've only gotten to page 3 in this discussion, so apologies if someone else has said this. Forte makes good points. I'd just add that there is no horse (yet) who is stellar in every movement of the...

    Great comment and just one of the many reasons why Carl is so well liked and respected.

    rothmpp, I cracked up at your comment about "one more time" because that was my experience exactly, and I actually teased him about it.

    Kudos for George Williams

    If any of you ever have the opportunity to work with George Williams, JUMP ON IT! He did a clinic in my area last weekend and, as a gift from my husband, I was able to ride in it both days. George is...

    Sadly, the majority of people I see using double bridles in third are not skilled enough to be using them, and they are using them as a crutch. The skilled riders don't need them.

    Long and low is great so long as a) the horse is not leaning on the reins and pulling with his shoulders and b) the hindlegs are active. Otherwise, it has no value.

    I'd find a trainer who will teach you how to teach him to stretch over his back correctly. You'll be doing him and yourself a huge kindness.

    For sizing, go to a U.S. tack shop and find out what your U.S. size is first. If you have decided on Pikeur, just look at the tag on the breeches as it will have the U.S. size and the European size....

    Properly stretching over the back is essential to a horse's soundness and training. If you can't get him loose and swinging in the back, he's bound to have issues, and your work (at any level) won't...

    Tack is always a personal thing combined with what works for a particular conformation/color. None of my current horses would look good in white padded bridles, but I still like them. The bridle on...

    Just want to clarify a Charlotte Dujardin quote. She does not advocate a "strong" leg on a horse. What she said is that you ride a hot horse with your leg "on." This is not the same as "strong." It...

    Another wheelbarrow fan and scrub buckets with minty mouthwash rather than toxic stuff like Clorox.

    I've seen ads for this type of thing before and don't consider it poor form. Just my opinion, of course. The person should have a video and resume ready to send out to anyone who answers the ad.

    See U at X,

    Beautiful bridle. I love the black and brown. Is that a custom Icon Star? If so, how do you like it?

    So much great information here. I have passed it all along to the owner. She has done most of what has been suggested. The mare is fed her grain in the stall 3x/day, so no competition there, and she...

    They did switch her to a senior feed, and she's getting Cocosoya oil. Interesting idea about the probiotics.

    Lots of good suggestions. I believe that a dental specialist has examined her, but I'll check with the owner. Obviously, she loves the horse to have shipped her from England, so she'll do...

    I believe she was tested for Cushings and was dewormed for tapes. And teeth were checked. Lyme disease, unfortunately, is a possibility. Thanks for the ideas.
