    Very cool! He doesn't look baby at all, and I know that confirmation you're on the right track is so nice, even if you have gone pretty far up the levels with a different horse!

    I think the nature of the neighbors' protest - that they want an unobstructed view of the Lauers' farm - helps you understand the need to make up fake reasons why the trees are necessary.

    Pressure points. Pressure points. Pressure points.


    Any time you are lessening the area of contact, you are increasing the pressure in those points. The cantilever does just that.

    It's more than that, but thank you for the recommendation! I was thinking if I would be good enough with a cattle prod or something. I just ordered one, because the neighbors have a new dog they...

    I used Equine Expres for my then-2 year old shipping from Florida to AZ. I found their layover in Texas to be a bonus, because it meant she had a break from travel time. They have the barn built up...

    Either you caught it while it was updating, your internet is connecting slowly, or maybe try a different browser.

    I think you owe it to your horse to try to find out *why* the behavior issues if they're major, and my mare has convinced me more thoroughly of that.

    When in heat, my mare gets very...

    I'd worry more about riding better *for the sake of riding better* than for pictures... I can't tell if you were trying to be humorous/ironic in pointing out that you do better at home, or actually...
  9. Gosh, it is fun when you get it right! (Please come brag!)

    Whatever "it" is, dressage is such a journey of discoveries of what right actually feels like, and the glow of something gone right is what keeps us going through the drudge work :) Please share...

    My horses get trimmed every 2 weeks if possible.

    It's specifically so that all trims are extremely minor. My gelding is barefoot because he had major hoof pathologies and NEEDED trims that...

    When my gelding does this, it usually means the muscles on the left side of his back are shorter. Some haunches in or half pass to the right as steep as I can get them for a few steps at a time with...

    My #1 question is always can you ride, or will you be able to ride this horse. Since you already are, and you LOVE it, that question is answered favorably.

    You can afford him.

    That's a hard balance to know! I think you're exactly right in handling it that way - my trainer helped rebuild my seat so I *could* ride through it, then once I could he stopped riding through it...

    I tend to think often it's not even a skilled trainer so much as a different trainer - sometimes at the same level of ability.

    I know my mare could have been VERY difficult with the wrong rider,...

    I found my trainer after my horse violently bucked me off in a clinic. My previous trainer, while I adored her, would longe until he had bucked himself out when my horse was wound up and in a...

    I believe scores should go UP, not down, based on gaits. I have a small sample size, but if you're doing it right, 1) dressage greatly improves the gaits and 2) there is so much technical in the...
