    The stretchy circle is a test of the connection not an end result. You don't train the stretchy circle... you work on the connection. That changes as the horse progresses. It is not static. This is...

    This one from Dressage Extensions is the best. Because of the cut, it doesn't make the shoulders/withers sore as most others can. Wears well too. ...

    Here's an idea. It may not be the saddle, but the girthing system. I have a horse who does not like the short dressage girths and where they put the pressure on the rib cage. Makes him unhappy. Use...

    Yes... you did the right thing. To have done anything else, would have been for you sake, not the horse's. She lived to 31 years. That is a very long life.

    I kind of question how horses in real life are going to react. It almost seems that these bits would teach a horse to not take good contact, but stay just a litte backed off.

    As he seems to be doing well healing without agressive and invasive treatment, I'd be most tempted to let tincture of time be the prescription.

    I'd also get myself a set of the BackOnTrack Quick...

    For whole oats, what you want to look for is Race Horse oats. They are very clean, nice whole oats. Nutrena has these, as does Triple Crown.

    Saddle looks too small, with too straight a flap for your thigh length. Your legs are not that short compared to where they should be. The days of copying Anky in the straight leg ski position are...

    It sure is H*ll getting older. Here's my two cents of help. FIrst: what are your aids? Are you inadvertantly dropping a bit forward on your thighs... placing your legs a bit back and turning out...

    Most of the masters classes in CA are 45 as the age cut off. And yes, at most of the one ring shows the riders will just ride the test, one after another regardless of the actual class. Unless there...

    These go a bit higher than a standard drop nose band. You will also need to figure out where it wil go, when you attach the bit with the leather loops. If you go to the website for the Micklem...

    The jaw strap is fine. You have it too low. It goes around the jaw, not under it. I think if you fasten it up where it should be, there will be more than enough. You may have the nose too low...

    Stubben will do for you. THey are one of the few that have that kind of seat still. You could also try Passier or Kieffer. Most of the others, have that flat spot and are for me, back killers. ...

    I've tried a good no slip pad, and found it made my horse sore. I think the saddles need to be able to move and not be "glued" down. Might work for jumpers... but I don't think its great for...

    Um.... really... no you don't. That could make a 3 hour commute if you are in the wrong direction... that's one way. You also have to figure your rent cost. Rent is not cheap in LA. Better to...

    I offered in the beginning and got told to "have sex and travel". And again when the board got rehacked, as I knew what the problem was. Not stupid enough to go for a 3rd time.

    That is a Parsival Dressage saddle. Same basic model as the old Tristans but with an upgraded smooth leather. Not an AP saddle.

    If your saddle allows try a long girth. I just went through this, and once again, the problem was the short girth, not the saddle or other. Short girths just put the pressure in the wrong place, and...
