At the moment I am doing something called straightness training by marike de jong.

I found with my new instructor she really understands my TB and how he really tries but if he can't he gets a bit hysterical...

I attached a photo of my TB and his yoga ball although he wasn't impressed.
Oh nice, he looks comfy in that blanket! Maybe he just needs time to warm up to the ball?

I still have my mares winter blanket in its bag, never taken out. The store said I can still return it for credit if i decide i dont need it. Im going to give it some more time (another month) and if she doesnt need it, ill return it. I have a feeling she doesnt really need a winter blanket.

This is a picture I pulled from google. Again...this is NOT my horse or any horse I know! The thing seems to have a few more issues than just packed snow...but it's a good illustration of walking around on "ice balls."
Yikes. I definitely know what you mean now. I wont let my mares get to that stage.

No he doesn't like the ball he tries to bite it and puts his ears back. That's a fly mesh rug combo for when the mosquitos start coming out in summer. The picture I just attached is his waterproof/ winter rug

People who don't do things exactly like you are not lazy or un-dedicated.

Hes cute. Does he like the small jolly balls? Is he eating his grain in that pic?

No not particularly he'll play with it as long as it amuses him and then he's had enough. I don't know what's considered grain.. He gets coprice cool conditioner pellets/Lucerne chaff (I think that's alfalfa over there?) salt/equine vit & minerals and Rhodes grass hay.

Then I am curious as to your statement regarding the boarders who do not put out the heavy logs to practice with as being "lazy", and people whom you assume don't read as much as you as "not dedicated" as you are. You said what you said. So what did you mean?
