    Wow! Really? I have never heard of that. Is that common? What about mares who have documented hormonal problems? (As in one mare I used to ride who had a cystic ovary and without depo would be in a...

    A lot of horses show in fuzzy and neoprene girths even at the highest level, and a lot of those horses warm up in draw reins, so I feel like it makes a lot of sense for D rings on show girths to...

    I think "leg into hand" is a great start to explaining how to get a horse soft, supple, and on the bit - its a huge step in the right direction. Anything to get away from the see-saw "hand, hand,...

    Does your daughter carry a crop? Without spurs, a crop is the go-to aid to back up your leg if a horse isn't responding. I would have you daughter ask her trainer two things: what to do if she feels...

    One reason is that if your martingale is already on a tighter hole, adding a clip would make it unable to go tight enough if the slack isn't being taken up the girth. I've actually encountered that...

    If your martingale is holding your horse in a "hunter frame" is definitely WAY too tight. The point of a martingale is to keep the horse from throwing its head up - not to keep it down in any way.

    It sounds like your schooling show series needs to remind some of their exhibitors about appropriate conduct. Even at a schooling show, I have NEVER seen a trainer approach a judge to complain!
