    I've got a brown bridle for my dark bay pony mare, and I LOVE IT. Both it and my saddle are dark brown, and they don't look as severe or make her look as bleached out as black tack.

    Going through...

    No problemo!

    I'd say as soon as you have a solid shoulder-in and a half-halt that connects through the outside rein and to the hind end, you're ready to go. You can always start with less angle...

    Agree with the issues of diagnosing from description vs. video. Sometimes the change issues are fixed with adding power, and sometimes they need the power taken out. And most of the time the...

    Probably because it's a GREAT MOVIE.

    Also on my list (for other reasons): Independence Day. Jurassic Park (the original). Ocean's 11. Shrek. Mulan.

    I had a similar problem-- pony was intimidating the teenage barn help-- and the only solution was to move her to a barn with different management. Some horses just can't be trusted with kids,...

    It's also clear that you don't approve of dressage. I'm curious why it's only my disapproval that's irrelevant here.

    The mouthpiece may be a snaffle, but if there are other parts of the bit (noseband, shanks, etc) that are integrated with/attached to the bit (as it looks in the picture), you're out of snaffle...

    I've got a pony. While it is physically easier to have her travel on a 10-m circle than it was for my 17.3h gelding, that doesn't mean she's actually bending. Ponies are tricky, man.

    Preparing at home is great, but often the horses are reacting to the rider's (and spectators', and other horses') tension(s) as much as the judge's box itself. And you can't really practice that...

    Apropos to nothing in the article specifically, but I'm a little sad people are leasing former Olympic/World Games/Pan Am Games horses for NAJRYC. I know some people can, and that's their...

    I wonder if she's not actually "on" your leg/seat aids. Sounds like she's either ahead of you (rushing/reactive) or behind you (have to push). I sympathize; my pony is this way. That just means you...

    I've got a dutch harness horse gelding that had similar issues. Really preferred to travel very UP, and out behind with his hocks.

    What I later realized as I was moving him up the levels is that...

    I'm a trainer of sorts. I have a career outside of horses but ride my client's horse 3-4 times a week and my own horse 4-5 times, depending on work travel. Not a typical trainer situation, I know,...

    Doritos. Gotta be Doritos.

    Or potentially the Locos Tacos.

    Still love 'em both. Much like how I love good literature but still sometimes read a trashy romance novel.

    The darned robins keep eating my strawberries, the darned rabbits keep eating my tiger lilies, and my darn dogs don't prevent any of this malicious behavior.

    But other than that, things are great.

    They actually covered that (briefly) in the movie in a way that I thought was maybe a bit trite, but because I love the continuity from previous films I'll let it slide.
