    "If I catch her, remove her halter ..." Sounds like a pretty big IF to me. Why couldn't the owner catch her and remove the halter?

    All kinds of alarms going off in my head about this. Sorry...

    That's just your opinion. Or some people's opinion. Not very accurate, though!

    I used to board at a barn, rode a QH, friends had TB, TWH, and ASB. We had a ball doing our horses' pedigrees and...

    Tortoiseshell fur that thickens up in the wintertime.

    I really appreciate your posting the translation, oldernewbie. It taught me a lot.

    That said, it also made me laugh out loud (which I needed!). I especially enjoyed "Always leave the safety come...

    What about stadium jumps that don't use standards? I don't know if such jumps still exist, I am talking coops, gates, walls; could you build any of these as a corner or skinny?

    Would change of bridle and bit be enough? Unless you're reining in a dressage-legal snaffle, that could be a signal for him. If your reining saddle is a close-contact one, I would think that might...

    I never liked Seventh Heaven, but I wish they'd filmed an episode of "The Colonel" riding with Ruthie. They could've found him a chestnut with a white blaze!
