    well well well... This may sound a little basic-but how do you build a horses' muscles to do the work necessary in western events (roping, barrels, etc) ? here's a picture of my horse (I'm trying to get him nicely conditioned so that he can perform well for me! ) *edit: forgot the pic.!!! ) Thanks in advance!!! PM me if ya want. [ 08-17-2005, 12:06 PM: Message edited by: mandi more27 ]

  7. ****Conformation Critique please!****

    thanks QT... I've been practicin with him and he can get some low 15's in a smaller arena-he is FAST! Farmer-He's 7-or so I'm told...he does have bit of a downhill slope- I don't think he's gonna get much bigger/taller he can be considered a pony (he's 13'3H) and since I am too big for him I am probably gonna have to sell him...darnit ...(so much potential!!!) I just dont want him to have an injury caused by me...he'll do much better for someone smaller and lighter... Instead I may be getting around a 16HH+ gelding that could carry me a lot safer (reference to Equus "Weighty Issues" says that you probably shouldnt be over 20% of your horses HEALTHY bodyweight...)

  10. What gait is this?

    I rode him today and he didn't dip down-and he did a lil nodding on everystep. It wasnt on just one...I thought it was but it's not! I think it was in my head Thanks though!
  11. What gait is this?

    his conf. suggests a T. Walker or a SpottedSaddle H maybe even a M. FoxTrotter...but I have NO idea-he's only 13'3.
  12. What gait is this?

    dangit! not possible!!! no vid. cam.!!!
  13. Any people in or around Omaha, NE?!

    that's cool. I dont know about the hay prices-I don't actually have to buy it(i board) but we do grow a lot of it here! LOL
  14. What gait is this?

    quote: Originally posted by Dixie Belle: A "nod " on only ONE foot, with a "Bob" on only ONE foot indicates a lameness or other pain in the legs or back. Problems can start out very small. Trot the horse out on a hard surface in all directions, and turn him in both directions. The only "once per 4 feet nod" that I know of would be for the lope - could the horse be doing a "4-beat" lope(lazy lope?) Is the 1,2,3,4 even? Is there a pause, like 1,2and3,4? Are the legs moving up and down diagonally or on the same side?(Ie - left rear, left front, right rear, right front - or more left rear, right front, right rear, left front?) yeah he does do the "once per 4 feet nod" for the lope. That's what it is(i think)...but it's faster than a slow lope...you know what I mean?? It's hard to explain if ya don't know exactly what your talkin about. I don't know much about how the legs pick up/set down according to each other-but I do know the counts and beats of the gaits. [ 08-05-2005, 10:40 AM: Message edited by: mandi more27 ]
  15. How expensive is....

    haha...I'm a year older now...well er...almost 2. A LOT of things have changed for me in the past year or so...such as living situations that continue to change, and my knowledge, etc. I finally got my horse...err i guess you can call him a pony/cob...he's short...but anyways-I got him a couple months back and my trainer (knowing my situation,etc.) has helped me with it. She traded one of her horses(that she was gonna supposedly get rid of) for him and now I'm paying her for him...she's being very gracious about it-she's not making me pay ANYTHING until I have him completely paid off. Since she has done this for me, I've gotten a really good job at as a cook in a mexican restaurant. I've paid more than 61% as of this day-as of sunday I'll have at least 81% paid off. I'm working extra hard to pay her since she is being so kind to help make my dreams come true. And I do plan to continue work throughout school so that I can pay for all of his expenses. Thanks- just thought(after all this time-I'd give an update!)
