    Why don't you take up foxhunting? Sounds like he is perfect for that job and would love it.

    Not terminology generally used in dressage. In dressage, we may talk about a horse being "confirmed" at a certain level, but not "made." "Confirmed" means that the horse knows and can...

    Because side reins are generally used to school young horses, and not to train upper level horses these days.

    I had my right one done in 2007 after I tore it holding on to the reins in a fall. I had the left one done in 2009. So I guess that answers whether it was worth it. The doctor was on the fence...

    I myself got past the stage of "riding through" bucking fits for two reasons, none of which is related to age. The first is that it is much more important to determine why the horse is bucking than...

    I think we are talking about three things here-

    1. Is it proper equestrian etiquette to ask to ride someone's horse. If not, why not?
