    I believe that Alabama has started an eventing team, but I think boarding and training are a bit scarce in Tuscaloosa. You sure you don't want to go to Auburn instead? :winkgrin:

    Searching for a horse can be so frustrating!! He looks like a lovely horse, but I have to agree with everyone else. I'd probably walk away from this one. I'm also not totally sure how the insurance...

    Riding a square is one of my favorite flat exercises for lightening the forehand and really getting the horse to use their hind end. It's also great for the rider to practice turning off of the...

    I would also recommend Elisa Wallace. She's wonderful with the horses and really seems to instill confidence in them.

    I would always rather have a little too wide than a little too narrow. I've heard people refer to the medium wide as the "trainer's tree" because it's what most trainers who have to ride multiple...

    Usually when I get left behind over a fence it's because I didn't have quite enough power coming down to it. Either the horse is behind my leg a bit or I've let their stride get too long and strung...

    This sounds like a balance issue to me. I'm not sure a stronger bit is the solution especially if he goes behind the bit. If you wanted to try something different I would suggest maybe a Mullen mouth...

    Unfortunately most of the shine sprays which make it possible to see your own reflection in the horse's coat are most likely going to make them slippery. You could just avoid the saddle area though....

    At home I love to use placing poles and step rails in front of and behind fences. I find that they help the greenies to improve their form, rhythm, and balance. You can adjust the rails according to...

    Bo really hit the nail on the head. IMO the sitting trot requires flexibility from your waist to your hips and pelvis. If you watch a horse trot, you'll see their hips alternately moving up and down....

    Another vote for the Omega Plus!! It's amazing stuff. I also love Cocosoya. My guy gets both and is perfectly plump. Another bonus with the Cocosoya is that it's put a beautiful shine on his coat.
