tripping gaited horses Posted on Nov 27, 2008 at 10:14 AM
Star, Have you had much experience with the gaited horses tripping in rough country? I've been deluged by Walkers and Trotters that are being brought out here from the East by our new "immigrants". Most all of them have this problem that we rarely see in QH's. Their trimming or shoes are fine. I'm guessing that the balance on a gaited horse is upset by the rough erratic terrain. I've been working on shoulders in which helps a bit, but I figure you're the Woman to discuss balance issues. Any thoughts on this tripping issue?
yes... where have all the flowers gone??? Posted on Jul 05, 2008 at 11:01 AM
I am curious as to where the folks have gone that used to provide great discussion of horse issues? Countryrider2 posed a very good question about her horse's behavior. I threw in my two cents worth, but that's far from the final word... just one man's opinion. I would like to hear more points of view. That's the only way I've ever found to figure out these critters. A year ago there was some very good discussion on this site, but there were a few members that had a bit too much ego for breakfast and were pretty darn'd impolite to many of the respondents and the folks posing questions. I'd hope that their totally uncalled for comments didn't tarnish the desire of people to express themselves here. NO ONE has the last word on horses in this world. The greatest horsemen/women that I have shared time with are always interested in what others have to say. Ever been to a Craig Cameron clinic? He has a bucket labeled EGO at the gate where you'd better damn'd well deposit yours before entering! I'd hope that we're all in this for the horses best interests.... aren't we???

I just checked in to the blogs after some absence and discovered that the new addition to the web site is that viewable pictures cannot be seen except by full subscribers. I suspect that this will discourage the use of the site more than increase revenues through increased subscriptions. I wonder what could be a more positive approach to increasing membership? Something so interesting and so positive that people would want to commit their $...
