From what I've heard, it's 30 days of training - however much that might be needed.
For instance, a horse that not halterbroke and going to the trainer is going to have to have a few (or more! Haha) of those taken 30 days taken up with halter training+just the basics, then saddle training.
A horse that's aleady had extensive groundwork done is going to come out more saddle broke after 30 days than one that starts the 30 days barely trained to do anything...
That, of course, is just my understanding. :)
My silly question is: what's the "right" way to put on bell boots?
On a blog I read, the other day there was a picture of a horse in bell boots that looked correct to me but all the commenters were saying the bells were on wrong...
Thanks Ricci (funny calling you that, hahaha)! That's what I thought but you never know!
As far as mares going through "menopause", they don't usually - at least according to my vet. I guess there comes a point where they might cycle more gently/less regularly but they're still cycling.
Lacey's 27 and she's still cycling super roughly - I hope she settles at some point! Haha
