    Poles. Or even better, jumps. Beastie loves it.

    He also loved playing in the water obstacle at a local Horse Trials last weekend. LOVED it. The bicyclists in the bushes, not so much!

    I was planning to go Sunday, but apparently that's off the table now. I may go tomorrow with my barnmates just to play in the water. :-)

    I agree - it's like a hillock or a ball or whatever just pops up under my saddle. I've only felt it for a few strides at a time, mostly because I get all wide-eyed in shock and fall apart while...

    My guy has this same bit. And the version with hooks for jumping/trail. He liked it much better than the other bits I'd tried before this one (single joint baucher, French link full cheek). I tried...

    A crowd from my barn went and had a great time - I've only heard wonderful things about Marlborough. I might even go the 5th, if only to play in the water or *maybe* follow someone over some actual...

    LOL - I have your animal! Except he's a mule... But I do love him, and we're learning to jump together. Otherwise we typically do dressage.

    We've established mules can jump. They can do dressage, too - this is last October. (I'm posting this here because I do like to brag about my boy, he IS wonderful.) We got a ridiculously high...

    I haven't braided Wash's mane yet, although we did a number of schooling shows last year. But his mane sticks straight up in a mohawk, so if I keep it trimmed down to a decent shape it stays...

    Huh, didn't know that! See, obviously NOT a jumper in any way, shape or form... Although we're working on getting to the level of being able to fake it. :)

    I've got a mule I ride dressage. While horses are often *quite* interested in him, I've only met one who lost his mind at the sight of my guy - and that horse is a bit batshit to start with. ...

    OP - if I got the kind of comments you had, I'd be crying in the corner. HOWEVER, I'm grateful that all I've heard, to my face at least, was how cute and cool my off-breed is. I take heart that I...

    My first horse was an Arab - always held his tail up a bit, and to the left.

    My current equine is a mule - he constantly swishes his tail in rhythm with his stride. We call it his "thinking...

    I bought him from an endurance rider out past (southwest of) Blacksburg, VA. Last mule he'd bred, claims the last he will ever breed. Which is a shame.
