- I owe you an apology. I have quoted you and referred to you and talked about your methods a number of times, and have referred to you as "he" and "him". I recall reading someone's post a while back that indicated you were a man using his wife's account to post. I finally decided to look at your profile. I am sorry for the error and will mend my ways immediately! I must say I pay strict attention to your posts. I have learned a lot reading them and putting your methods to the test. I am a novice trainer, even though I have been handling horses more almost 50 years. I prefer pack trips in western tack to any other kind of horse-related activity, and I prefer to train my own horses to do it. Your posts have certainly added to my horse sense. Thanks.
- I don't know why the website link would not work. Here it is again
I will check it and make sure it gets to our site. You never said where you live?
ps. Well that is strange. It worked when I clicked on it at the bottom of one of my posts but went nowhere when I clicked on it in this message. I guess you just need to type it into your browser.
- I would be delighted to ride with you some time. I did not know there were miles of trails there. I just rode on the one ( can't remember the name) where you go out, cross the water, up the long hill, ride around up there and then circle around to come back the same way. I tried to access your business website but perhaps I got a bad link.

Posted On: 10-17-2014, 12:25 PMJazzy, that is only true for horses that sit around more than they work. Most of today's horses are much too well-fed for the amount of exercise they get, which is the ONLY reason they have metabolic...Liked On: 10-18-2014, 01:34 AM
Posted On: 10-17-2014, 10:09 AM^21yo horse is not equivalent to a 90yo in my book... unless you know some very sprightly 90yo's! I'd say more like 50's. And as with people, depends whether they're 'old' then or not ;-) But agree...Liked On: 10-17-2014, 07:52 AM
