    I'm ISTP, according to Bluey's link. And the description they offered is actually really pretty close.
    I absolutely love and need solitude, so I guess that makes me an introvert. The perfect way...

    Not actually in the market. I guess my thinking is that if they're competitive to what COTHers see, I might drop them a line to suggest they advertise on here. Boost the local economy an' all that....
  3. Local guys getting into the portable barn market

    Edited:
    on second thought.... I've deleted original text because by including the actual link it came across like an ad. Which wasn't my intention (I have no connection to these ppl at all)....

    OP, I think you are probably overthinking this.

    There are two separate tasks going on here. You are babysitting, like you normally do, and your BF is doing the trailering. So:

    the OP was about 7 years ago, probably she's found her gate by now. ;)

    I can't claim the cat training prowess of Halt, but I have trained my cat to fetch just about anything. Including rolls of duct tape :confused:

    I can't tell what is your role in supervising these kids--are you directly responsible for them at the show, or are you just getting them there, and they'll have a trainer or some other adult...

    ^^^ :confused: this comment is RIDICULOUS. I have NEVER ridden FEI and you should just GO AWAY!!! In fact the entire forum is now officially on IGNORE.

    Most of the time discussions of whether a horse is broke or not seem to be directed at other people's horses rather than our own. :lol:
    It's just a variant of the usual railbird commentary that...

    Yes they used sprayers, but unfortunately i dont know the specific formula.
  11. OP, to put it another way, your statement is so...

    OP, to put it another way, your statement is so broad (e.g., make any horse do what I desire), and it's hard to know to what extent that's been tested. Just as you requested factual commentary from...
  12. You say that a horse is broke when (after lots of...

    You say that a horse is broke when (after lots of training and repetition) it "does what I want, when I ask." If he doesn't do what you want when you ask, then he's not broke.

    This, to me,...
  13. A broke horse to me is one that can be ridden...

    A broke horse to me is one that can be ridden calmly by a competent rider at all gaits and is accepting of aids to move its body in certain ways. Understands and accepts that its job is to be a...

    If you do a search on COTH for "waterer", you'll find lots of feedback from folks with auto waterers. Bar-Bar-A has also gotten good recommendations for cold climates.

    I feel like there may be too much effort in to explaining why (what her experience has been, breeding, what she's spooking at, she's sensitive, she's distrustful, it's "avoiance of xx object" etc)...

    It does sound like it's going to require major life change to make a meaningful difference. And you sound unhappy enough with your current situation that maybe this is the time to make those...

    Not specific to snow, but with a horse cast in the pasture up against a fenceline, I used a longe line around the pasterns and we pulled the horse over its back. It's a 2person job, usually.

    She sure sounds like an awful horseperson but you need to ask yourself why are you investing so much time and energy in cataloging her mistakes and flaws.

    I dunno, the OP's list of tasks is not very ambitious. There are lot of tractor enablers here :lol: (kinda like you know the answer you're going to get if you post "should I buy this cute pony?" or...

    I'm guessing she didn't want to give up Febuary income if she could help it because she's already purchased hay, feed, and bedding for (at least) the coming month. Doesn't excuse the behavior but...

    I'm sorry for what you are going through. This is all the more reason to strongly consider stepping out of a direct role in selling this horse. It sounds like it may be a painful, emotional process...

    I'd put a 30-day refresher course on him with a pro, and go video your horse while the pro is riding him. Keep the videos SHORT, and break them up into separate ones. Nothing drives me more crazy...
