  4. Requirements for students to show lesson horses?

    I'm wondering what policies others have for horseless students (mainly kids) to show their lesson horses. Once I feel a student is ready, I've offered it as an option. I keep all fees extremely...

    So mine isn't exactly a warhorse, but here's a nod to TB longevity, work ethic and intelligence. My current TB raced 25 times over 2 years (had a bowed tendon rehabbed in between seasons), earned...

    I have an AppX large pony who was a trail horse before I got him. His biggest issue was that he was taught when you touch the bit (it was always a western curb), you slam on the brakes and back up. ...

    I have the 50' Pirit. I leave it uncoiled laying the length of the barn, it doesn't coil well anyway and drains better. I plug it in first thing when I start chores, by the time I'm ready for water...

    I use a chiro quarterly on my FEI horse, whether he "needs" it or not. He tends to have spots in his SI area often, probably a combination of his conformation and the work he's doing. When he needs...
