Thanks for the apology Muppet.
My income will increase again, it's unusual for me to be so low on kids. So when I get some new ones, I'll be able to restart the chiro again.
Let's just put the conversation about that stuff to bed now though. :)
Thanks Rookie. I do need to educate myself more about nutrition. I am planning to start that once I have sent this response.
He left the track and was with a horse trader straight from the track. I bought him in the Dec of that year. She has since become a friend of mine, so I can contact her anytime to clarify but I believe that she just got him used to the new tack, gave him some turn out and sold him to me.
When we are in the arena, his stop is fine - I just created the monster on the trail. I use little contact for stop, in the arena, I don't need to, I can just close my hands on the reins.
He totally has a preferred side, he used to struggle to pick up his correct lead going left. Since the chiro, this has been much better.
He does not bend well from the ground, I have been working on this much more recently.
Riding gear, D ring snaffle, regular bridle, leather girth, wintec. I used to ride in a running martingale, but I don't use it anymore.
My gear, jods, boots, helmet, any old top. :)
