    OP, I have had good luck feeding whole flax. I wet it first, and let it sit...

    My best friend has a lovely TB who had been an upper level eventing prospect before he injured a hind suspensory. She was given the horse after the rehab was complete. The horse hasn't had a bad...

    greywithchrome, I feel your pain! Your pony sounds a lot like mine. The little mare I fox hunt is very forward (how's that for a glass half full attitude!) and she evades the bit by raising her...

    How much money are you spending? Smith Worthington has a huge selection and will fit the saddle to your horse, and they don't stop until everything's right.

    I dreamt that the mounting block at the barn where I take lessons turned into a toilet. To mount, you had to put the seat down and stand on it. Nothing else about the barn had changed, just the...

    Madeline-if you saw the horse I would like to use this bridle on, you would say the bridle is the least of my worries! But I agree with you, the bridle is ugly and funny looking. And no, I don't...

    emile-there is a bridle in Dover where the crown is very much behind the ears, well behind the poll. I would love to try it for my little guy-he *hates* having anything near his ears, but it's very,...

    I ride a 14h Connemara/Welsh cross. If I ever buy another horse over 14.2, it's gonna have to be absolutely perfect-otherwise, ponies for me from now on.

    I am 5'2", 100lbs.

    I think one reason our horses are fewer in number, and cost more is the care put into breeding them in the first place. I don't know for sure, but I don't think many breeders here plan on "pet...

    To me, it depends on how much "forward" then horse has.

    If he keeps going forward, then it's a crow hop, or a dolphin dive. When they stop going forward, and stay in place for the fireworks,...

    I second a lot of what FitToBeTied said-my strength is not as physical as it once was-now it's correct technique and reliance on 45 years of educated experience. I trust what I know, and act...

    She's getting a pair of woolen mittens with the cutest horse on the back, and hearts and a 4 leaf clover on the palm. In fact, they are so cute I may just keep them myself (not really!). They took...

    Don't say anything. If she sees them and it scares her, serves her right for looking down.
