    I know this is an old thread, but I stumbled upon it and got curious if anyone has any updated thoughts on this now that it's been a few years. I was just moving to Houston when this thread was...

    Thanks for all the thoughts! To clarify a couple of things:

    The main reason I was thinking purebred rescue vs. going to a shelter is that most purebred rescues have been able to foster the dogs...

    Thanks for all the ideas so far! I am including chis in the mix, as there are a lot of them in rescues, and I've also added poodles to the mix. My other grandma has a miniature poodle who is just...
  4. Dog Breed Recommendation: Small, for an Elderly Household

    I am much more familiar with the personality of larger breeds, so I thought I'd see if y'all could help me a bit.

    My grandmother and I feel that her husband would really do well with the...

    I like to do a lot of groundwork with young horses or retraining projects. There's so much you can show a horse from the ground using longeing and long lining. It's easier for them in a lot of ways...

    Honestly, with the baroque types, I think it's almost more important to teach them proper stretching (NOT LDR or Rollkur). It's very easy for them to curl up into a sort of pretty frame but be very...

    I see what you mean now. I was reading it as one of those, "What you really want and need is a WB, so why are you looking at other breeds?" posts = )

    I definitely agree with you on the judging. ...

    I understand what you're saying, though I do think you're missing the intent behind these statements. As someone who has ridden a lot of "off breeds" as well as warmbloods, I can maybe explain this...

    This is an old thread, but since a few have posted again, why not?

    I have greyhounds, and greyhound people are kind of notorious for having lots of collars = ) We just use lobster clasps too...

    I grew up showing and training ASBs and I still love them. For me, they have some of THE best brains around. Most are incredibly honest and willing, if a bit on the sensitive side. They will turn...
  11. Looking for a vet to do a PPE near Dear Park, WA

    I am very interested in a horse that is in Deer Park, WA, but I am not familiar with the area or vets out there. The seller has recommended two vets that they use regularly, but, for obvious...

    I think they need to be carefully used, as they can cause neck/spine issues if the dog is constantly being jerked around on it because they haven't had the necessary basic training to understand...

    Ditto Liberty's post about catinfo.org. It's got a lot of great info and was put together by a small animal vet (who also rides) and has advanced nutrition education.

    I, personally, will never go...

    I originally hail from breed show land myself, so I like some clipping. However, I never clip eyes (my grandmother is a long time arab trainer and has probably had hundreds of horses in her hands...

    I like the app, but my phone is always on me, even when riding. I will sometimes pull it out while I'm on a horse and review an exercise I like. I've also pulled it out while giving a lesson. I...

    A couple of thoughts:

    1) I am another that never really dug Matine's freestyles. She was an amazing mare, but the ride always looked forced and somewhat mechanical. And a tail helicoptering...

    I have a Prestige that is a 17.5 and I wish it were an 18. It's fine on my more advanced horses when I ride with longer stirrups, but I'd prefer an 18 for a little more flexibility. In most brands,...

    Minneapolis Kid-Friendly Barn

    I'm looking for a barn where I could take my 7 year old niece for her first ride when I go to visit (and maybe gift future riding lessons if she likes it). It doesn't need to be strictly dressage,...

    As far as the crating goes, 8 hours for a puppy in a crate is a long time without breaks. Plus, if she really can't hold it yet for 8 hours, she may end up learning to pee in the crate, which is the...

    I have a very short backed 15' appy. He goes great in my 17" Passier GG (NON-gusseted panels) and also in a 17.5" Prestige without the gusseted panels (can't remember the model). I've seen some...

    Completely agree with smm20 on starting a grey with cats. My older male cat is the alpha of our pack. He will stand his ground with any dog and is a great intro for non cat savvy dogs. So start with...
