    OP, you said:

    " it's only going in one direction which is odd to me. "

    I would suggest that since she's an OTTB (USA, I am assuming), she spent a lot of time going left and her balance and...

    Does this happen in exactly one location - namely in the ring moving towards the outgate? When you said working farther from the gate, I was imagining the other side of the same ring. Is that right?...

    Gravel/stone dust would be preferable. If you do use chips be very, very careful that there's no black walnut in there. Laminitis risk.

    It's really his way of thinking that matters. In general, if a horse offers a behavior (i.e., becoming antsy) and then receives a reward, the horse will be inclined to offer the behavior again.

    I agree with Palm Beach. The principle is to reward the behavior you want.

    This can be a release, a food treat, a nice rub on the neck or other things the horse appreciates, but be very...

    I wonder if you could have a spray-on rubber or plastic coating applied or whether this would make the surface too "sticky" to dump efficiently. (I am thinking of the after-market pickup-bed liners...

    Lusolov hit the nail on the head. It's probably not a bit problem.

    It would concern me a bit :-) that your trainer sees it as such.

    Congwatuwations!

    Now he just needs to jump a widdle wounder from the wonger stwide.

    Gweat work!

    I cut a piece of horse-stall rubber mat to fit the crate's tray. It's 3/4" thick rubber tightly fit into the tray so no edges the dog can grab. Seems to do the trick.

    Not a priority at all. Rhythm and balance, rhythm and balance, rhythm and balance . . . Sounds like your trainer is on the money.

    I thought it was to stiffen the outside and thereby prevent the boots turning inside out/upside down when in deep footing - "anti-flipping up" design.

    Contact UC Davis. You will need mane hairs from mares and from sire/dam of each, I believe.

    My experience with Legend, with two horses as my sample, is that it takes effect very quickly. I can tell a difference within 24 hours, sometimes less.

    For me, I do not find it to be a substitute...

    The Klimke book(s) Basic Training of the Young Horse (original and revised) are excellent resources for what you're doing.

    Zettl's Dressage in Harmony has a classical training program also.

    Does she follow your seat?

    I mean, as you stretch up in the up transition does her back follow? If not, then I would work on that.

    If so, then I would work on suppling her back using my seat...

    The palomino is attractive and has a very nice expression. I wouldn't consider any of them (or any horse) without spending time with them in person (or having a knowledgeable friend do so).

    You can explore different shapes of mouthpiece (mullen, single-, double-jointed) and cheeks/rings (full cheek, loose ring, D-ring, etc.) to see if your horse finds some more comfortable than others. ...

    I've never seen one of these bridles, but I do observe that the flat part of the cavesson assembly is behind the horses' cheekbones and the cheek pieces in the manufacturer's photo and MsR's. The...

    Simkie -

    Thanks for the comparative table - very useful. Do you know what a "dose" of the liquid Elevate measures in ml? My old (almost 33 y-old) does well on it, but it IS pricey!

    Thanks...
