    By inviting, I mean it should promote and effort that will set the horse up to succeed, if they can maintain the focus and answer the questions asked by the course designer. To me, a designer who...

    Whether it is an oxer or a vertical, the first jump in a course should be inviting. It should say, "Welcome to this beautiful course of awesome and scarey jumps. Enjoy!" A max height oxer set going...

    In his fifth year, my DutchxTb got his back right leg hung up on top of a 6ft tall round pen. I had to hold up his 1500lb self while my trainer and her student's dad took the panels apart, then jump...

    No braiding - Jumpers grab mane!

    Seriously, the best part about doing jumpers is not having to braid. But if you want to, I think anything is fine.

    I absolutely agree and this is what we did, with the exception of one oxer in our last class that became an issue I was grateful to have been given the opportunity to work through, then retire from...

    Wow! Talk about an assumption. First off, not everyone has the luxury of a schoolmaster. That said, Some people at schooling shows are there not because they are a new rider but because they are...

    Drinking out of the hose is for amateurs. If it is really hot and the hose is nowhere near me while I am riding and I start to get over heated, I have been known to get off the horse and scoop water...

    After money issues meant I couldn't get a horse after we sold my pony when I was a teenager, for years I used her old wool cooler as a second blanket on my bed. I only stopped because when I left the...

    I wear mine low - right above the top of my boot heel. My horse is big and my legs are short. With the spurs low, it is easier for me to do what I want when I want, verses not when I want.

    Op, it sounds like you have had some less than ideal farriers (bad work/hit horse in groin), so it is understandable that you are protective of your horses. But it sounds like you have found a good...

    A well-timed, well-placed pop with the rasp is not unreasonable. Obviously, the viscous beating described by a previous poster is absolutely unforgivable.

    Farriers are in a very vulnerable and...

    OMG, this. Without a doubt, this. I'm working with my coming 6yo who is still a bit croup high. Given his druthers, he'd go like a western pleasure pony, but he is a 17h wb/tb jumper so this is not...

    But the real question is how do I keep them off me? I've found several this summer before they were able to get their grubby little heads into me and pulled two off already. The last one hadn't even...

    I'd like to install a couple fans in my 2h straight load gn trailer. The local trailer place said to buy what I wanted and they would install them. Any recommendations for brands/types?

    I've always been a flat seat kind of girl but when I bought my last saddle, the Stubben rep brought out about 8-10 different models and I rode in them all. The one I'd poopooed on the ground as being...

    This is definitely a personal preference thing - sometimes the preference of the horse. I bought a straight load because my horse did not load/unload well in my trainer's step-up slant. He'd load ok,...
