    Why would you want to try to add exercise without addressing the obesity? Why would you not address what is certainly going to kill him? At least muzzle him. Also, there's no reason to give him...

    I saw the title and my immediate response was "don't wear shorts" but that's probably not what this thread was actually about. Heh.

    You are using your stirrups at one (or more) point(s) in the canter which keeps your hips and legs lined up in such a way you aren't slipping back, would be my guess. Impossible to say without vids...

    Somebody ought to bust Mythbusters. I can't tell you how many times I watched that show frustrated at their unscientific methodologies. I can bust holes in their pseudo experiments left and right, so...

    I agree with SLP2 - while the kid is young you could break down your goals and get some of them done, such as getting your bronze etc as she described; filling in the holes in your education with...

    Stepped on, the product would break down into dust and particles I wouldn't want to inhale. Its not a stable product and would obviously break apart. I wouldn't, and can';t think of a reason why you...

    Ooops. Just saw that her name already is boudica and that you hate it. Too bad - I think its a great name, but...

    I think you've learned everything you need to learn from this trainer and this barn.

    Any questions?

    My guess, and I sure don't know, but if the dressage judge scored him low for 'loose' movement, I would assume before anything he was poorly ridden, and was "all strung out" with a hollow back,...

    I'd check for Lyme. That's quite a putter out on his motor, and those aren't fences of any kind of significant height. If you truly can't find anything physical, I just might quietly try some kind of...
