    RE: fox bows: I think it is a little deceiving based on the angle and my daughter's size. Yes they are big, but not /that/ big. And they don't cover her back number, which is what I am really...

    It appears that the problem is that the youtube app for iproducts doesn't like the "copyright" infringement for the second song in the video. Although...

    I hate to give away all my best secrets, but every year we do a calendar. The theme changes every year, and the rider and horse must dress up to represent that theme. The more outrageous, the...

    OP, I have no idea how you ride so this is surely not a statement to you personally. But I have found the best preventative for joints is to ride a horse properly, meaning with a correct use of...

    I would not allow it. As others have said, it can lead to rolling in the tack.

    I had a little mare that I was breaking. She loved to play in the water trough and get soaking wet, then roll in...

    Thanks for all the kind words. :)

    Roo is saintly enough to take care of them, but is challenging enough to make them learn to ride. And his ground manners....sheesh, my daughter is ruined for...
  8. New Video of my kids (debuting the little bro this time) and their amazing pony.

    I haven't posted in a while but thought it was time to share my latest video of my kids riding their pony, Roo.

    This one is rather special to me because my son is the same age as my daughter was...

    I'm just gonna pity party with you, and maybe you will feel better as a result.

    Glad to hear of your good ride.

    I wanted to share something that is a very personal admission, which is hard to do because I am a "pro" and many pros don't like to discuss weaknesses, particularly...

    I have a horse that is very slow to respond to an upward transition to the canter (probably why he wasn't the greatest race horse....no real jump from the starting gate, if you know what I mean). So...

    Perhaps I am the exception, but I have been the primary trainer for my daughter since she started riding 3.5 years ago. A couple times a year, she rides in the clinic with my trainer, but that's it....

    I don't think the horse was shown with full blown laminitis. Too soon after laminitis? A great possibility.

    We don't know if the banamine was for the sore feet or another issue entirely, which begs the question: just how many issues does this poor horse have?

    But if it was for the feet then.....WTF? ...

    So the banamine metabolized at a different rate than expected because of a medication, given to ease "laminitic symptoms" (which the horse has experienced before), altered the horse's metabolism,...
