    I agree that working on long and low would be the perfect thing for this horse, and I know you're overwhelmed wit conflicting advice right now, but it sounds like you were attempting some long and low the other night and you were getting some response. You should be proud of your improvements, he is coming along well and so are you!

    I have just 2 more comments, one being the post regarding Cool Calories: I used that one a skinny mare I had and it really DID work, it's an excellent, but just be sure to read the label and start out slowly cause it can give them diarrhea or cow patty stools...

    And lastly, I may get torn apart here, but does anyone else think that Hero would benefit from a standing martingale?? It was the first thing I thought of when I saw the pics. I have a young TB and we work him in one, it's not tight by any means, and he can stretch long and low easily in it, but it does stop him on those rare occasions when he has put his head up, like in one of your first pics there where he is acting up. Just a thought!! Good luck and keep having fun :)

    He doesnt do that anymore - only when he needs to balance him self at the canter he throws his head...im thinkin if he is improving from that he might not need one
