    Update on my lesson horse..

    She is an amazing lesson horse. After riding her in a rubber snaffle for a while, I changed the bit to a full cheek Waterford. No pulling, no nervousness, no tongue...

    I ordered Parlanti boots from them a couple years ago...I think customs cost was still cheaper than buying the boots from here in the US. Maybe $100? Not sure though...ccan't quite remember. But in...

    I appreciate folks trying to give me advice that I am sure comes from a good place, but i think all too often it is easy to pass judgement without seeing the animal, knowing how I run my program,...

    Thanks for the responses. I rode her this afternoon in a rubber mouth snaffle and she was good. I wanted something very soft in case the other bit was causing pain or something. She had to be...

    bit suggestions for problem needing fixing

    We recently bought a new lesson horse. She is 7 or 8 years old and was ridden by the previous owner's kids mostly (good little riders), but was never in a real program...slightly green but has been...

    Update: I tried the anti-grazing rein on him (using twine), first with the teenager to be sure he would be okay with it, and second by a beginner student. He did pull a little bit about halfway...

    When asked to do something, like go over a pole in the middle off the rail, he stops trotting and yanks down with anyone small enough that he knows he can pull them out of the saddle (not with me or...

    He has been getting ridden by either me or a 17 y/o girl that has taken him under her wing as her project horse. He did stand in a field and was skin and bones and nicked up when we got him (he is...

    He has been getting professional rides plus advanced student rides for just over a year now, so I don't know that I can justify investing much more time as just a training horse without merging him...
  10. Bit recommendations for lesson horse that pulls and fusses

    I have a lesson horse that does well immediately after he is schooled. He is nearly bomb proof, not quite 15 hands so not intimidating, and very smooth at the trot and canter. His ground manners are...

    I always tell my riders that jumping is just flat work with some speed bumps in between :)

    If you perform poorly on the flat, why add jumping to the mix? Horses should be listening and responsive...

    Sounds like a marketing scam to me! I do training and lessons out of my own barn. Someday I would like folks that are showing to do 2 lessons per week (in private or group formats by LEVEL!), but...

    Magnesium deficiency is very possible! Try a magnesium supplement. You should see results within a couple weeks if this happens to be the answer. It doesn't work for all horses, but if he happens...

    OP - I love the Butets. I have a 2000 Butet that I have had for 10 years or so and it has held up very well. Super comfy, you feel close to your horse, and the leather is wonderful. Definitely use...

    I know, I know! :) I bought my Butet almost brand new...was not broken in...and I feel like if I get something with nice enough leather (even if not butet-quality), it should break in easily. Plus I...

    Your horse will tell you what it is or isn't capabale of. Downhill horses can be successful. The key is that they stay sound. Every horse is different. You can do a lot of exercises to make a...
  17. M. Toulouse Marielle, Beval Artisan, or Herve Godignon saddle??? Please help!

    I am in the hunt for my next forever saddle (currently have a 2000 Butet). I would LOVE another Butet, but it is simply not in the budget.

    I ride a wide variety of horses (warmbloods, TBs, and...
  18. Thank you! This is exactly what I was hoping...

    Thank you! This is exactly what I was hoping for. Beval does take Beval brand trade-ins, which I had no idea. They may take my saddle in trade for a new Beval saddle. The Artisan looks promising....
  19. IN THE MARKET FOR A NEW (USED) SADDLE TO FIT LARGER HORSES

    I ride in a butet currently that is in fairly good condition. I have had it for about 10 years and bought it just a few rides short of it being brand new. While I LOVE the saddle, I know I need one...

    The Exiss is model SS/400ST. Good or bad??? Can't find anything when I google.

    Thanks everyone. I had no idea about the frame issues and have since done a lot of reading. I have to admit I am a little gun shy when it comes to the Sunowner now. It does fall within the range...

    We will be purchasing a 4-horse head to head trailer with a dressing room. I have come across two great options. One is a 2003 Exiss and one is a 2002 Sundowner. Both are at least 7'6" tall,...

    We are upgrading truck and trailer from a 2-horse bumper pull (hauled by an SUV), to a 4 horse gooseneck, head-to-head with dressing room.

    The trailer I want is aluminum, 30ft length, 7ft wide...

    Tonight I discussed cutting back his work load - they seemed to understand. In the past when I have brought up the topic, they have expressed great concern that they were afraid he will forget what...

    There have been a few rides where I have gotten so frustrated with him that that is exactly what I have done. I hated that that was the only way I could get him to say yes though. I told the owners...
