    Then I will say it again, gymnastics. Those help with knee tucking, fitness, rider form, striding, etc. There's an answer.

    There is actually no known therapy or treatment for a horse that doesn't sweat. Juuuust an FYI.
    Also... in regards to a horse that is hanging a leg. You could always try to break up the monotony by making smaller jumps just a bit more of a question. Scary things under them, corner fences, skinny, not just your same old average vertical and oxer type of stuff. My horse can do the meter fifties. But do you think I go charging up to a meter fifty fence every time we school? No.
    So he needs to remain competitive at the 90's and the meters as well. Grid work, and keeping it interesting for him is what works for me.

    Secondly, I had, (very possibly inappropriately, & if so I'm sorry), glommed on to something you brought up in your thread (the not-sweating) simply because it was an interesting piece of information...you actually DID bring it up as a concern of yours, so it WAS part of the topic...and I'm VERY happy it's been completely taken care of...can I ask what the decided reason was behind the not-sweating, simply for my own educational/growth experience?

    I'm sorry I haven't anything to offer by way of him knocking rails, etc...though I believe others have given quite a bit of good advice/recommendations!

    Best to you! :0)

    The vet, simply put, said he just couldn't release the water from his body to cool himself down as fast as he was heating up and being a black horse the oil from his skin clogged his pores. So he couldn't release the water. We corrected this by supplements, extra bathing after rides as well as hand walking, and Gatorade immediately after his rides cools him down immediately. He has no sweating problems now :)

    Gymnastics area beautiful thing. After focusing on gymnastics for a couple months my horse went from this ( http://i47.tinypic.com/8voinq.jpg ) to ( http://i49.tinypic.com/315kg75.jpg ) this, and while he still has a ways to go we are SO much better off over fences now. No rails, very clean rides.

    Wow! Amazing progression in only a couple of months--not that you looked terrible to BEGIN with or anything... It's simply that in the LATER pic, you guys look AMAZING, and you BOTH seem to have improved your positions over fences!! I'm sold...GYMNASTICS are CLEARLY the way to go! Great advocacy!! :0)
