    Let's just say that a well respected, high volume tack shop in this area dropped Wintec and started carrying Thorowgood instead. I'm just guessing about this part, but I think it may have had...

    The last thing I'd do is turn back home if my horse slammed on the brakes and refused to go. I'd kick myself 14 times for overfacing him, but I'd also be very careful not to reward him by letting...

    First, you can't rule out pain. No one can. Only the horse knows if he's in pain or not.

    The only fair way to try to get a handle on what's going on, IMO, is to start him over again, right from...

    Exactly, and because the mouth is so sensitive I would say that the most common way to create the kind of tension that's expressed as mouth problems is with bad hands.

    That may be the reason we...

    Probably because they feel that mouth problems are most likely to be the result of poor training, since horses aren't born with the tendency to go around with their tongues hanging out. And because...

    How do you know he's not in any pain? (Just curious, because I thought that was something we couldn't know.)

    My spooky horses are willing to go just about anywhere as long as I go first, but if I want to "drive" them toward something that they fear then all bets are off. So if they're afraid of something...

    I think that's only true with the snaffle, and that there's only bit pressure on the bars when the pressure gets so strong that the horse can no longer lift the bits up with his tongue.

    My suspicion is that no matter what someone has accomplished on their own the feedback is going to be either that the person didn't actually do it on their own because they took too many lessons, or...

    I think the problem is that the neck bends more easily on the stiff side, so some call that the hollow side, while others are aware of the bend in the body so can tell that the bendy neck side is...

    I think we'd first need to define "round". IOW, what are the limits when we're talking about "roundness". Is an RK horse round, and can he collect when he's round in that way? Is a Baucherized...

    There are of course, degrees of submission. Those who want to win comps, or get nervous if their horse canters when they wanted him to trot, will want a greater degree of submission than someone who...

    They're not timid when it comes to varmints, and some aren't timid at all, but the ones that wheel away every time something spooks them can be quite the challenge, because they don't stop when they...

    [QUOTE=GoForAGallop;7800421]I find this to be a very odd post. It is nothing like I have heard from any other mule owner, and I'd be curious to know if you have experience with mules outside of the...

    Seems like a bad idea to me, too. If a horse is afraid of my mule I get him out of sight as quickly as I can, because the last thing I want to do is bring my mule to a horse show (even when I'm...

    Mules love to be around horses because Mom was a horse, but they're timid animals, which not only makes them submissive to horses, but is one of the issues behind many of the training problems we run...

    And unless his job is going to change once you start working with him, you may have limited "success" at tuning him up when he just goes right back to his usual job in between.

    I'm not easily grossed out, but a jar full of pus would do it because it's not interesting, but just gross! Although if it was a really large amount of pus from one abscess, that might be...

    Here in New England the footing is a much bigger problem than the short days, because if it's dark out it only takes one little light to be able to see well enough to ride.
