    Those molded boots you linked don't have a strike plate. They are the newer version of the old Millers boots, but something got lost in translation as they Velcro back to front, not front to back...

    Well, I would not ride her again until she can at least trot so you have that option when she plants. Sounds like the little lady is feeding off your apprehension. From my own experience I know...

    What JLee said, times 10. I am going to call you out on the lunging as well. Perhaps this horse or his size has intimidated you. Now, I get that, my 4 year old is 17.2. Big horses make big moves....

    I have re-started a lot of them. The current project is a four year old, 17. 2 mare that evidently has no clue about the lunge line, so we're starting in the tack this time. Forward, in almost all...

    TB Stallions

    If there is a TB stallion you really like, it never hurts to inquire whether the owner will allow a sport horse breeding. I did just that, and was pleasantly surprised. You have nothing to lose by...

    In your Bill of Sale you can write not to race, enter to race, etc. This won't prevent a subsequent owner from possibly racing the horse but there is a precedent and it does keep the honest person...

    I had a Stormy Atlantic colt that I gelded at 5. He was nice to be around and ride; had a little bit of the cat stubborn streak but it was pretty mild. Became a lovely horse for a pony club kid.
