Well, I am going to disagree with most of the above posters. I say it is much harder to go [I]back[I] to working student kind of life. Since you have your parents' financial support, do it for a...
Thanks for everyone, including OP who started this thread. has been super-informative!
So what is considered high NDF/ADF? I have hay that is 51%/35%. Is that good or bad?
My OTTB used to paw with his front leg and pin ears at me when he came. I did a lot of ground manners training and round penned him. The eating behaviors were not really affected. He was ulcers...
I really like Warwick Schiller. You can subscribe to his video series online. It is laid out in order of the exercises.
Welsh ponies are the BEST!! But be prepared that they can be naughty on the ground. Maintain very firm boundaries and have fun. Congratulations on your beautiful new pony!
I have a five gallon bucket with one of those toolman canvas bucket liner organizers things from farm and fleet. I also have a yellow plastic dish that sits inside so I can have two levels and keep...
What subk said . . . .
he stopped after his Rolex first place dressage ride on Chili Morning to sign an autograph for my ten year old pony clubber at her first Rolex. As a mom, I will never...
I have one. It gets the stalls really clean which I like. It is easier, but doesn't save a lot of time.
Love mine. Handed over my airowear to my daughter!
We had one on the other side of the state that the DNR had to acknowledge because someone had great trail cam pictures of. There were at least two attacks on horses in the area. I would exercise...
I agree with BFNE. I love this for most days, and would prefer a 1 day trial. But it is also nice to do true 3 days at the bigger events.
To whoever recommended "no job for a lady" thank you!!! Just finished it, and my daughters are reading it now.
For my turn, I recommend "the village horse doctor" by Ben Green.
I switched to progressive this spring and have been very happy so far. I use the grass balancer and envision for the TBs. noticed a real change in hoof quality and growth, and they have been on...
Darrin-- YES, I've read that and a few other long rider books. I. Am always amazed how few COTH members have. Have you read, To Ride a White Horse?
I second the power washing. Take everything out and go to town. I promise it will take less time than any other method.
I also watch his videos and love them. Trying to learn!!
My TB gelding has a longish streak that is on his neck where a shot might have been given. It is always sweaty and different colored from his normal coat (grey). Asked the vet and she didn't know,...
Also, be sure you ask what discipline the d2 is for. Now pony club has standards for hunt seat, dressage, and western as well as traditional. Requirements will vary. Also, you are responsible for...
Also, a kid can retest a section or two if not up to snuff, so you don't have to fail them.
Not a fox hunter, but LOVE these vids!! AFH, you are the bomb!
Yes they work and my big TB stops when he hits the end of the rope. I no longer have to use it, but when you need them, they are fantastic.
If he is underweight TB why would you cut back on his grass? Fat easy keepers, yes, thin TBs, no.
Friend received this on dressage test in comments section under collective marks, rider.
"Needs to have NCG".
What on earth is that?
These were signs of laminitis in my horse who is IR. Hopefully not laminitis in your case, but they were exactly like what you described except only on front feet.
