    Warning people is a start, but it's your responsibility to keep your horse under control. Send your horse to a colt starter, they have the skills to deal with kickers. The one gelding I had that...

    See, this is what I don't get. You bring a potentially dangerous horse to a show and then quiddich about other riders. There are trainers that can get a horse past firing at other riders and horses....

    I think WA has weird looking back legs, so straight and then very angled fetlocks. Livingstone is visually much more appealing in stance and over fences. (to me) Obviously WA is a superlative horse!

    I've heard that term used for the long English spur. Rowel spurs are spinners or wheels. (In my area, lots of cowboys that work the feed lots here)

    I don't get the whole privacy thing. Make it clear to boarders they are not to come to the house, apt, etc. The one training barn I was at wasn't closed on Mondays, but the trainer was not available....

    There was a horse I rode in a treeless, I don't remember the brand. It was about $800 new. Worked like a charm on him. He was round with a very short back and flat withers. I used a special saddle...

    I've had several horses that showed high anxiety when riding out alone. Lots of wet saddle blankets helped all but the mare. She had to be stalled at night and turned out alone during the day. She...

    I'm not a possessive owner, anyone can cuddle my guy if they want. He loves attention :)

    Sounds like you want him so get him. His front end looks typical of many qh's that I've seen at shows, they all look lame in the front. The toe first foot landing is classic.

    The gelding I had was bred to trot. Dam, sire, and siblings all raced as trotters, but the breeder told me if she had sent him to train it would be as a pacer. He had a tendency to pace when we were...

    I don't "think" I have to haul a BP, I prefer it and so do the large horses. The less expensive GN's do not have enough length per stall. The BP is extra tall and has very roomy stalls. Plenty of...
