    I could see her making a nice horse with better training. Dressage would be helpful in teaching her more engagement and self-carriage. Cavaletti would also help achieve that goal, I think. Overall, I...

    She's not missing a leg, so what is the catch?

    In all seriousness, WOW! She's pretty, and I hope that she finds a wonderful home where that beautiful trot is put to good use.

    These seem more practical than the Dover wall mounted racks.

    As an aside, I find that eating a diet extremely high in fiber (i.e. one that includes many of the foods deltawave said her husband tries to regularly consume) does have a tendency to make me feel...

    As someone who has taken more than my fair share of falls, two of which resulting in concussions (one of which being relatively severe), I would say that the helmet that fits you the best is the one...

    I agree. In the videos of him under saddle, it looks like he is throwing every evasion he can at his rider in the canter. That may be because his canter simply isn't all that well developed yet (it...

    Hi all,

    I am looking for any information on dressage trainers in the Roanoke, VA area. A trainer with schoolmasters is necessary as I do not own my own horse. As this is the case, someone who...

    34 D

    I have to wear two bras when I ride/run; a regular underwire and a heavy duty sports bra. As a chesty girl, let me just say that sitting the trot when not properly strapped down puts me at...

    Oh God, why?

    Overall these outfits are not so intolerable that the athletes should burn them upon completion of the games, but why the Northern prep school look combined with 1940's naval attire?...

    Yellowing Herbs

    I have a cilantro plant and a basil plant in individual pots on my deck- they get plenty of water and sunlight, and yet they are turning yellow. The cilantro has actually turned this burgundy red in...

    Would you be so bold?

    Hello wise COTHers,

    Background: I have come here to seek your council! I am an on again off again hunter and dressage rider who is determined to consistently ride through college on account of the...

    It may not come easy or free, but it doesn't have to come ungraciously. Yes, it is a hard business to make it in, but we don't (the horse community) have to make it any harder than it has to be by...

    Go and do a working student position at a farm with a reputable trainer. You will learn a ton about horse care and management, which any rider shouldn't be without. Clearly you are quite ambitious!...
