    I walk on a loose rein for 5-10 minutes. Then trot on a loose rein with light contact for 5-10 minutes. I might even try to get him to stretch long/low and really use his hind end. I then go back to...

    I also love Robert's Arena! I went there twice last year. The first time I went I was on my own without a trainer. A few trainers were very nice and polite when I asked to share their warmup jump and...

    To me, a "derby horse" is very brave and maybe a little too fresh for your regular performance hunters. They are enthusiastic about their job and have a bit of brilliance to them. They have an...

    I can't answer your question, but just a word of advice...DO NOT even sit in any of the super expensive brands (CWD, Voltaire, Antares, etc.). Because you most likely will fall in love. And it most...

    If he was turned out consistently or 24:7 and he is currently sound then the leg up time will be shorter if he were to be coming back from an injury. Just as a general outline I would be thinking 2-3...

    Glad other posters have disagreed with smacking a horse that has rails! That is NOT how horses learn and will only cause problems.

    I agree with the others that suggest that it is time to call...

    I wrapped my curved mouth single jointed full cheek snaffle with Sealtex and it worked wonders. The straight bar bits didn't have enough independent movement for him and traditional rubber bits or...

    So I take it that means those ingredients are all USEF legal? Also, does any of it need to accumulate or do you just start it the first day of the show? I like the idea of some inflammation control...

    I also just purchased the Mountain Horse Sovereigns in brown! They are on back order until February. I can't wait! They were only $298 from Carousel Tack.

    I guess at 24 I am also unknowingly part of the "uneducated" generation :lol:. I remember my high school was in walking distance to the local horse show complex. I would get up early enough in the...

    Would like to echo the above two posters. I would really focus on the walk. It's a gait that is so often overlooked and is a fabulous slow, low-impact way to improve strength. Hills and poles at the...

    Good horses make good riders. That is what I think the BNTs in the equitation ring have going for them. They consistently have a long string of GREAT equitation horses. Not saying they aren't great...

    If your horse has been on a hoof supplement for a long time already, I haven't noticed a difference switching to other brands. Using the Smartpak comparison feature it seems they are pretty...

    I would disagree. Two very different styles of riding for two very different disciplines. The ride required to get a horse through a technical question on xc is not the same ride to leave the rails...

    If you don't mind me asking, what would be an approximate cost for diagnosing and treating EPM? PM if you wish! (or no answer is necessary, I understand!) Thanks :)
