    Also afflicted with the long femur, and a forward flap can make a world of difference in getting blocks to work.

    There are a lot of used County Perfections with slightly forward flaps out there. I...

    Work in two point will improve your leg a lot. For me this is more helpful than no stirrups.

    BUT if the saddle is bad for your physics and putting you in a chair seat this will be difficult - you...

    +1 that shortening your stirrups may help this a lot without your even thinking about it.

    But I think a photo would be really helpful, as I doubt you need to do much at all with your upper body...

    The e-bikes are great and can easily move you at 20mph. Given your interest in dirt bikes I think you would be happiest with the type that can be used with the throttle alone and not just...

    I am in a similar boat with a new horse, and sadly sold off most of my suitable flat-tree saddles a few years back. Or the ones I enjoy riding, anyway. The one I have left, a Bates Event saddle, is...

    Impossible to say how much height he will gain - I've had horses that never gained any height after 3 and others that have grew 2-4". Luckily not much hinges on such outcomes, except perhaps in the...

    Don't sweat about ulcers if he is eating everything you give him, just give him more. He's big, he's young, he's Thoroughbred, and he's probably lost as much or more in muscle mass as in fat since...

    Hacking outdoors. Ideally on all kinds of terrain if his tendon is ready for that.

    A few thoughts for you. One is to do a bit of round pen work to see if the horse is able to pick up and hold the left lead on his own without factoring you into the equation or having to teach him to...

    What a gorgeous horse you have there. You are taking a very kind and thoughtful approach so I'm confident you'll bring him round. But should you happen to grow weary of this training challenge and...

    Are you sure she actually needs the flash? Removing it would be an easy solution to the problem!

    Can someone explain why dressage riders are so adamant about having the foot and lower leg pointing straight forward? This isn't the case for any other riding discipline and seems to result in people...

    +1 I would never fight with a baby like this, and always give him the benefit of the doubt to avoid scaring him. Many young horses react like this when they are confused and lack confidence.

    Don't worry, he will do fine - it is just the tracer and a lengthy boring period of sedation as they do the scans. Easy-peasy! Fingers crossed for diagnostic results, and identification of an easily...

    In the video, the horse gives the impression of having a perfectly lovely temperament. I would not personally give the pedigree much weight here.

    I have been horse shopping recently and would consider myself lucky if I could find something as nice as him in my part of the country.
