    I will try to get back and answer some of the questions people have. I am pretty much MIA right now and may be for a while. I have a 9 month old grandson in Children's Hospital in OKC. This is his 4th hospitalization in less than 3 months and he is not doing very well. So, I have been going up and down I-35 more than I have been home. I only have an old PC, so if everyone will bear with me, I will try to get back to everyone when things slow down a little.

    I hope your grandson has recovered and doing well. My thoughts and prayer are with you.

    I really enjoyed reading this post. It is a really good piece. Thank you!

    Introducing Red to everything on the trail he noticed might be one of the issues horse and rider are dealing with now. You mentioned the riders' fear. A couple of wrecks with the ground has caused me a great deal of apprehension which I am sure is sensed by my horse.

    Thanks,

    Ellen

    Very interesting Cherie, I will give it a go. I could be a year and a bit off riding again. I have a nearly 8 month old that I have just weaned and I'm hoping he will be my "forever" horse as I'm 50 years old now. I've got lots of questions as I've never done this before ( attempted to break in my horse myself) maybe you could answer me this one? How old should a horse be to be ridden the first time? Is it 2 y.o or 3 y.o? I am only 56 kg so i'm not that heavy? Thanks Kerrie

    Exactly! I'm kinda like you in that aspect, I just brush it of like nothing and keep the horse moving, if I can; my mare OT tends to freak out at EVERYTHING, so we've been working on that; This might help me out :) Thanks .

    I'm just wondering something - my mare has just moved again and she has been acting very barn/buddy sour. I read a post you wrote regarding being 'boss' with them. I tried this last night and she was SO tense. She was literally coiled up as if to explode, shaking, sweating, stock still and stiff and then when/if I applied pressure, she would rear. Would you still ride through that? Or find another approach. I feel like it was impossible to teach in that state.
