    Been there

    I have a herniated disk that resulted in sciatic pain. It just got better after about 1.5 years of pain. My doctor told me not to ride, but I did. Walking and walking and lots more walking. It really...

    Our barn is going through this as well. Especially in the mare paddock. There is an area where the rain water formed a mini pond. It was so humid that the moisture couldn't evaporate. The heat turned...

    I would have loved to have heard County's opinion on this article.:)
    I am sure he would have delivered a blunt statement of "go poop in your...

    Yet, I know many mothers that ride, have a career, have children and embrace life to its fullest! They haven't given up on anything! My POV is that stereotypes are dangerous on either side. The...

    I am so sorry. Hugs and strength to you as you go through this time in your life.

    Humans are resilient. You will get through this.

  7. Oh FG...you are not alone.

    As you can see, you are not alone. I feel as if we search for a purpose in everything that we do. With Dan, there was an obvious purpose. Your goals were being accomplished. He answered your horse...

    That is great to hear. And ya...he is definitely this type of horse. No arguments and he really looks for me to make the decisions.



    Thanks again for your feedback NTAT. You have given some...

    For sure. That is what we really focused on for the first month. It's great. On ground he stops with a verbal whoa and moves again when I give him cue. After the first few minutes he really clues in...

    This is a good point. I think this is when I will go BACK to it. When working on transitions from trot to canter for the first time.



    Also good point. Once he gets some fitness from lots of...
  11. Have you ever trained a greenie without using extensive groundwork?

    2 months ago I brought home my OTTSTB. He is 5 and just a great horse.

    For the first month I did a lot of in-hand with him to establish manners etc. We did a bit of lungeline work at the walk and...

    Do it!

    I did my standardbred's. I was so scared as it was so long. It actually got caught up in my rein buckle. Ya, for safety. That's it! ;)

    I love pulled manes. He will look beautiful.

    Sometimes you don't even know you have one!

    Hi FG,

    You are asking for trouble, posting about "possibly" wanting another horse. COTH enablers are very powerful! This I know first hand!

    As you know, I adopted Wilde, my off-track...

    I feel for you. My beloved Lou had this "sensitivity" as well. She was just thin-skinned in general. I really had to adjust my riding schedule for her. In the hot summer we would ride indoors at...

    Absolutely. He is just such a love bug. Just started getting on him. He just kind of goes with the flow. A great guy. Not without his "just turned 5 and I am green" antics. But honestly, for a young...

    You have had excellent intuition with Win so far. Perhaps you have nailed it once again?

    The only determining factor for me would be his fitness and mental health. Does he need to be ridden to...

    I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my special chestnut TB mare in Nov to a freak colic. Her last hours were very painful and then she was a drug-induced zombie. I could not get that out of my head...

    You may have to start a new one?

    Just wondering. Is there a Standardbred Clique on COTH? If yes, I will become a member. If not...perhaps we should start one?
