This is a better example of the kind of movement they're looking for in the type of classes Sandie is showing in -


And HITS, with the lack of going forward thing, is it possible she's just bored with all the ring work this summer and maybe a tiny bit sour? Would taking her cross country and getting her blood pumping help walk her up a bit.

Red face Chriopractor

Anyone out there ever use a chriopractor for their horse. What are your opinions and experience?

This is an AQHA hunter under saddle class -

And this is a USEF hunter under saddle should look like -

Yeah and unfortunately since Sandie is a Paint, she can't do the QH hunters anyway...shame

Someone mentioned APHA hunters...is there such a thing? Is it similar to AQHA hunters?

The thought has definitely crossed my mind Maura! Which is why we're going cross country schooling in a couple weeks, and then the fall hunter paces will get started and we'll be attending those too! But we do a lot of cooling down on the trails at my barn too, to keep things different...but they're not all that exciting in the way of trails. I think Sandie may need taken off property more and ridden on some new trails, she does definitely get bored/sour with just ring work so that is very well a possibility.

Also Maura watching some of those videos, Sandie is obviously a lot SMALLER than all these horses, at only 14.3hh. How much of this do you think could just be a judge's preference for those "big lofty movers"? I wonder how much more Sandie could even actually give me, at her size?

Ugh I wish she was FASTER now, I'd just make her a Jumper and call it a day!

OOOOH yeah this looks more like Sandie's cup of tea!


Hmmm wonder where in my area I could find a schooling lower level version of one of these shows? I bet this is something I could teach Sandie to do...she LOVES to go long and LOOOOOOOW with herself. If I let her, she will trot with her nose in the dirt!

HITS,

I think that's a factor as well. Even moving brilliantlly, a 14.3 horse just isn't going to look like a big mover next to a 17H warmblood or TB. Hard for a much smaller horse to get pinned in a hack class.
