    When I was in California I saw it done a lot at a variety of barns. Big facilities with almost no turnout + horses all eating almost pure alfalfa + many nervous older adult beginners equalled......

    I agree with Mac123.

    It is not wrong to ask that your students -- all students -- treat you with respect. You have a disagreement with this student regarding training methods, but you are the...

    A crank can be used alone or (more often) with a flash. It tends to add more control because it doesn't loosen as you ride whereas a figure 8 often does (as the horse crosses his jaw etc). For a...

    In Wellington you have to ride at 1.60m against 100 horses in a $34,000 class. In most Grand Prixs around the country you jump against 25 or 30 horses at 1.45m to 1.50m for more money than that.

    We have done something for the setup before (a new custom white board or a mirror with barn logo in farm colors) and it was really appreciated.

  8. Interesting Rodrigo interview: on WEF, Brazil, state of the sport etc.

    Worth a read I think. I appreciate his candor and willingness to discuss some of the problems in the sport. And his commentary on WEF is spot on, in my opinion.

    Thoughts?

    A friend of mine lost a lot of weight following the Curves complete program. I have never had trouble with weight, but the way they tell her to eat seems close to the way I want to eat naturally...

    Thanks everyone! The felt, cardboard, or cork horses all seem like possibilities. You guys are great.

    But I am pretty short on cash this year, and I have relatives across the country.

    I work at a barn for a day rate, but a half day is 60% of the full-day rate. That is because once you factor in gas and travel time, it simply would not be worth walking out of my house (I live...

    Ride in as many saddles as you can. See if your friends will let you borrow theirs for a ride, and start to figure out what you like. There are many different brands, and even within each brand...

    Thanks all! Overturning my own body is something I have to be constantly aware of. As well as putting too much weight on the outside seatbone.

    On the flat and coming into the jump I can control...

    Help a jumper rider perfect her turns!

    Hello all! I generally post on the h/j forum (and may cross-post this), but was interested in getting an opinion from some flatwork specialists.

    Short story: my main job is flatting high-level...

    My (well-known) trainer loves ship-in/show only clients. In the end, they have no expenses associated with them (hiring staff, barn maintenance, etc), and are therefore all profit.

    A lighter seat in front of the fences will help. If his canter is bouncy she may be trying too hard to sit. Have her stay tall but get out of the saddle three strides out while sinking in her heels...

    Sure, you can do it! Definitely borrow a jumping or close-contact all-purpose saddle, because it will be very hard to stay in position in one of your other saddles. You will end up too far behind...

    I think some loose rein rides are beneficial. It gives the horses a mental break and teaches them to carry themselves without having a rider's hand to lean on. And it teaches the rider not to depend...

    I also feel that 'lesson horse' has a bad connotation. To me it implies that the horse has not been well-ridden and might be dull or overworked. I realize that this isn't the case with all lesson...

    No, if she had done this at the VMAs people probably would have thought she was a genius. Especially dancing to blurred lines... Ha.
