    Dunno if this will be shouted down or not, but you might try taking a beta blocker. People use them for high-stress occasional situations like job interviews or stage fright. Basically they...

    I have also heard tell that green is "in." But I'm still sad colored shirts are out.

    I don't have any super constructive advice, but you sound like you have a great attitude and are willing to work hard -- that in and of itself will get you far.

    And I'd second what people have...

    Cute horse -- I love a solid chestnut. I think that little stop might come from you asking for "go" by leaning forward instead of closing your leg and waiting for your horse to jump. My horse is...

    This. All anecdotal evidence aside, there's nothing to suggest the kid is lying. I'm actually quite interested in how quickly this has become the story of a wayward girl who has abandoned the...

    How many innocent cowboys have to give their lives before we outlaw these hats once and for all?!

    Because girls are the only ones who lie to their parents about having sex? Good thing they have responsible adults looking out for their modesty.

    But someone with a "fowl temper" should be able to home in such egregious errors with eagle-like accuracy.

    If a pelham works, teach the kid to use two reins. If their hands are big enough to hold a rein and a crop, they can hold two reins.

    I have seen so many nice ponies turn into stoppers after getting hit in the mouth over fences one too many times. The really sad part is, I think this particular trainer LIKES her kids to ruin...

    Sounds like a martingale is in order. But as an aside, when I first got my horse, he'd flip his head up when I tried to take contact; we had his teeth done and put him in a gentler bit. He still...

    Hey guys,

    I wondered if anyone could share their favorite flat exercises or techniques that specifically target hunter attributes -- rhythm, straightness, frame, etc. I'm looking to develop my...

    I think I would remember that cute face... I'll look out for him, though. What breed is he? I'm planning to start with the 2'6" hunters on my new guy, too.

    I'd go for Option B. If you are willing to be patient and have a trainer helping you shop, you should be able to find what you're looking for in the 20K range. You can look also for deals with...
