    PS I love the ideas about the shoulder-fore or riding toward C thinking about the turn. This mare (and my style as a rider) mean that I'll do better at keeping her trusting and obedient by giving...

    Thank you for all your suggestions!

    It sounds like the "Always ahead of my leg" is a long term ingredient of this that helps. And I am installing this in my mare. But she's suspicious and...

    Yeah. Or clarify with Top Maintenance Guy who will be in charge of da katz.

    Otherwise, can you clarify for us (or for yourself) why the uppity nature of the maintenance guys means anything for...
  4. Teaching 'em to trot right up to C and the judges' stand, No Matter What?

    I have my first dedicated dressage horse prospect, having made ranch broke hunters forever. She's more reactive and more forward by nature than the horses I chose.

    And every dressage horse out...

    I agree with vxf111-- a saddle seat horse is a different creature. It's easy to misunderstand them.

    That said, OP, even if you have tried all of your contacts, it might be worth one more round of...

    Dying for a belief seems more a measure of it's importance than it's logic. Or at least, one can feel a deep connection to both logical- and illogical believes.

    Beware OP! You might be the one bordering on being offensive.

    Sorry to get back to this point but I think speaking in euphemisms doesn't help.

    "Isn't working out" implies that the horse is part of the equation and could change up his game and do otherwise. ...

    Yabbut she got a vet to give the gabapentin to you, presumably on some description of the horse. The vet might have been wrong. But why is that your deal? If you want a vet to come see the horse...

    I think you need to answer that "Why did you buy him" question with more clarity. In your OP and you answer here, you make a joke and side-step it.

    Yet you need to discover why you bought him so...

    The (suspicious) adults were out there and CatHead was…. suspicious. And then what? Did kiddo strike out on his own? Was he sent as bait?

    You should have made her *walk* 7 hours to the vet. I'll bet the lameness would have showed up then (in the ungrateful cat). FWIW, I have been yelled at for bringing a "only half-way broken" horse...

    Point billets: Tell me all about 'em!

    I have a wide, flat yet also pear-shaped Arab/WB mare. Thank God she has withers. But her build makes saddles slide forward. This is a new problem for me.
