    My heart horse, currently, is my mare. She's not the most athletic, she doesn't fit the ideal of what I should have, but for me, she's perfect. I realized that I have ridden and worked with so many...

    I also have a hard time selling, BUT the ones I do not want to sell are too easy, too laid back, and athletic to go along with it. The older I get, the more I want to try to keep this fun and safe. I...

    I think I may go ahead and give it a try then. I have about six weeks to work on it. My biggest concern is strength, and the extended gaits. My coach will be down in a week or so, and I will talk it...

    Leather doesn't always break. A really high dollar, well stitched halter does not snap as easily as some might think. I know from experience. I saw a horse almost kill itself tied and the leather...

    I am lucky as my vet is close, so the cost either way is about the same. It would be a lot better for me, to send her out....but I think it would be better for her to stay home.

    My pony cross always wanted to get quicker, I had to teach her to get longer. I would recommend hill work or pole work. It is the push and drive, not the speed. I also had to realize my pony cross...
