    I think unless we have strain gages measuring the force of the contact, we have no idea how strong it is/isn't. My young horse, who has never had her face ripped on or been pulled in too much,...

    Only if it is not forceful. And the angle of his body in those pictures makes most of us suspect it WAS forceful. Which is why everyone asking where the video is has a very good point.

    It's ugly...

    I have been the ground person, and it was easy - it was a horse who someone had sat on before, but just wanted someone on the ground there in case things got a little too exciting, and I was to keep...

    Oh, and I'm really excited he will be on.


    But I have to figure out if I'm willing to watch if Paula Deen really IS on. I have no interest in watching anything that has anything to do with her.

    Good thing the gestation period is more than 12 weeks. But seriously, those people who give 2 weeks notice for a job which takes well over 12 weeks to train someone? Inconsiderate a-holes! I think...

    See, I think it was a correct decision and more in line with how I understand Europeans handle it to wait that long to require a sitting trot. My mare is the type who simply invites a rider to sit...

    I don't know how the actual gelding went, but my mom bought a gelding who hadn't been one for long. He was used for breeding, then gelded around 9. Totally mellow, easygoing, turned out with my...

    The "so what?" is that people care about the wall, the struggle, getting through it. I have several friends right now who are dealing with the mental exhaustion and frustration of learning to ride...

    Who's the shortest female pro? I suspect he'll be plenty strong to lift his partner, but has to be able to reach her first...

    See, to me that's obviously a huge factor, but it's a more obvious one that I think people realize is an issue. But if they suddenly could ride more often/take more lessons, I believe the mental...

    Funny, we were having fun playing doing that prior to one of my tests at our most recent show. Because my mare came out with her game face on and didn't need our warmup time, so we played to help...

    Since I doubt everyone will read the links helpfully given by Epona142 (thanks for taking the time!), it wasn't just that they did nothing to fix it. It's that they intentionally had the coffee at...

    Simple and basic doesn't mean it's done or easy, but when that's where the failure is, people know it. Fitness level to carry oneself is something you can measure and keep up. This is where when...

    See, I think the idea of needing to get more rides, needing to exercise off the horse, etc., is basic and simple. And I think *just* doing that leaves many people stuck in training/1st. Absolutely,...

    My job for most of my career was in Defense, and thankfully I didn't have a work phone. Since I usually also didn't have usable internet most of the time, it meant I couldn't do anything but fully...

    Eh, the left one's already smaller, I'd give the right. :lol:


    I think women don't value and place our identities on our boobs as much as men do, though certainly both genders can have identity...
  17. Pondering that "wall" riders tend to hit around second level...

    I've had discussions with friends lately, and am starting to think the dividing line where riders can't get past 2nd level may well be more mental than physical.

    In my personal experience, there...

    That typo is so CUTE. Because an extended trot you have trouble with makes it feel as if your life has been expended. ;)


    Congrats on everyone with great updates! I'm loving it. :)

    It's a very interesting question.

    From my understanding, politics come in far more than they should.

    A certain very well known and controversial German vet claims that Matine was lame and no...

    I want to try tabula rashah's suggestion!


    I have pulled off boots, fly sprayed, grabbed a jacket and held a horse, etc., for someone whose support team wasn't there at many dressage shows. I've...

    If the first thing you're doing is looking for book recommendations, I think you'll fit in perfectly in the dressage world. :lol:

    As far as your horse - good for you for looking to do what suits...

    I hope the next day went very well, too! You should share updates!


    At my show with Ellie she was in heat which means HOT. And still very rideable. I hadn't fully adjusted to how she needed to...

    I think the rider's improvement was fantastic. Few of us have the chance to improve so much with one horse, progressing through all the levels. But kudos to whoever the rider is for so much growth!

    Agreed that it varies. My TB is known for acrobatics and misbehavior, but is a lovely mover - gaits are routinely his highest score because of that, with submission as his lowest. Typically gaits...
