    I think you look pretty good for only having had one lesson!

    I would just practice trotting around in your two point lots and lots and over trotting poles as you are doing. Try to think about...

    OP - I understand why you are upset. Whether or not this is a routine occurrence, I would say that the issue here is that you are likely on entirely different moral ground in terms of "doing what it...

    That's a great update. Very happy for you both.

    I also agree almost any reasonably sound horse can jump a 2'6" fence, including stocky built quarter horses. In fact, if that wasn't true, I...

    I am about a 14.75" calf and require a tall - I got the Tredstep Da Vincis and a 7.5 medium was 15" wide and 19" tall. They fit perfectly. Tredstep seems to have a great range of calf height and...

    My advice would be to LET GO and let this horse go forward. More leg, less hand. I think the transitions are frustrating him and building the tension. Use the martingale (standing or running,...

    My Albion jump saddle is either such a dark havanna that it's almost black, or it's just a faded black. It looks smashing on my dark bay. Way better than anything mahogany or caramel or newmarket...

    If you're willing to commute, Erin is about 45 min or so from Kitchener and Peter Gisborn is great. http://petergisborn.ca/index.html

    Maybe try a bit with a low port to give her tongue some relief?

    I agree with this sentiment. However, I think the difference in this situation is that she's not coming back to ride FOR the BNT on BNT's sale horses. She's going to be riding her own horse(s) and...

    OP - I operate in a similar fashion to you and I have encountered a similar problem.

    The fact is these type of people think they have some heightened entitlement to your time because they helped...

    If you're not solid with installing lead changes, I would strongly recommend that you pay a good h/j pro to ride a couple of times an install them for you. A hunter one hundred percent needs to have...

    If it were me in your shoes, I would avoid keeping this horse in your trainer's barn. There is no reason you can't ship in for lessons or meet her at shows. If you will be showing the horse...

    I think it depends on the situation. For example, if you are taking lessons in another discipline, I don't think it should be a problem. If you are going to clinics or occasionally taking lessons...

    I think you might be on to something with the shoes.

    Although his hocks may be bothering him somewhat, I can't think of too many 13 year olds with his mileage that couldn't use some injections. ...

    OP - thank you for having the wisdom to realize you should not be attempting to ride this horse at this point in your venture. Although you have taken some flack from others in this thread, that was...

    In my opinion, you can't have a functional working relationship with a trainer you don't trust implicitly. Sometimes things don't go well for a while before they get better. The difference is that...

    Sometimes my Kuvasz does this to me. It's usually when I've been lazy with the exercise. It's her way of saying "walk or bust lady" HAHA.

    I think before jumping to conclusions, you could just contact her and say "Hey, I saw you have a new horse. Cute! How is Dobbin doing, anyways? Long time no chat!"

    She may not even reply, or...

    Thumbs Up for Dover Customer Service

    For the first time today, I ordered from Dover to ship to Ontario, Canada.

    I could not have received better customer service. Surprisingly, their shipping department even worked with me to find...

    I'm thinking this situation calls for margaritas, krazy glue and a nanny cam. How you choose to implement these items is completely open for discussion :D.

    This needs to be added to the COTH Fave...

    My dog vomitted bile and blood when she had an episode of pancreatitis. She had diarrhea as well, but the vomitting came first. The ulcers were caused by the pancreatitis. Any sudden change in diet...

    This is going to be the case with any trainers with a show operation. If you're not on the road with them, then they can't be in two places at once and they probably don't want to make their already...

    I always incorporate lunging, then lunging with side reins and ground driving into my re-starting of OTTBs. Really helps to teach steering, contact and balance, usually results in a much less wiggly...
