    This is what I was trying to say. I wouldn't go to a rated show without being confident we can get all the elements but a schooling show for sure. I will usually show at my totally confirmed level...

    I would second making sure you either change late or simple change if you can't get it before you hit the next sequence so you don't mess up that score as well. I have no problem going to shows with...

    I third Piccolo pony. I have the same pony as you! We weren't having a ton of luck getting the lengthen concept in the ring as just when she was about to get it we would hit a corner and lose...

    The only times I've encountered this it has always ended up being a discomfort issue. Once was saddle fit, another time PPSM, another time was long legs coming up under belly causing discomfort when...

    Have you tried clicker training with her? I don't use it on all horses but have moved mountains on the nervous ones. We start with small confidence building things on the ground and teach a "relax"...

    I put 30 minutes. My pony starts out strong and loses energy as we go. She learns best if I get something, repeat it once then quit. It will always be there the next ride. She hates being...

    I have super long, curly thick hair and what I do is braid my hair then, just like my horse's braids, I fold the end of the braid under and tuck it up under my hair at the base of my neck. Then I...

    Thanks Foxtrot! Slow and steady is definitely the key with this one especially! She likes to be confident in her work and I try very hard to praise the crap out of her and not push her to be...

    Thanks for the tips! We will keep the cadence and I'll just keep slowly adding more bend as she gets stronger! We worked for a couple of months in very small increments asking her for this more...

    I am in training with a GP trainer who just saw her this week and she is very very happy with our improved trot work. In her opinion it's very natural that she can only do one or the other to start...
  13. Bend or power/rythym: Which is more important in a test?

    I know BOTH are equally important but my pony has just unlocked a new, very suspended beautiful trot this summer. It's powerful and cadenced and I'm over the moon! However, as she is still getting...

  18. Best additive for outdoor sand arena to cut down on watering

    We just finished leveling the sand in my dressage arena tonight (Yay!) and it's quite a distance from a water source. Not impossible but a boatload of hoses and work. What is the best additive (if...

    I have sporatic access to a trainer so I'm on my own most of the time. I found setting up a video camera on a tripod is invaluable. I tape at least every other ride then review. I also changed how...

    LOL Well now that's an idea!!!

    I guess I need to go back to refining my steering off of seat only to start. I can turn her off seat but not so accurately as to ride perfect figures or hit an exact...
  21. Tips for not looking like we are drunk on the free walk

    My mare wasn't born with a big swinging walk. She's got a little pony walk that never had enough overstep or swing. After working our butts off I finally got the nice, long, stretchy big free...
