    Pessoa Training Aids

    I got the pessoa for christmas last year and I love it! My gelding has some conformational issues that were creating a road block for us as far as engagement is concerned. By putting him in the pessoa in the lowest (green) attachment, it really encouraged him to round up his back the best he...

    If excuse for checks is "safety"...

    I get the same reaction by both the announcer/ring stewards and the other exhibitors in my class! One time a ring steward even walked over and "headed" for me...LOL, I was like "thank you but he is quite content to stand here by himself" Courtney

    Driving Question

    This horse was winning in WCP classes at AMHR shows near here. While we did not go to Nationals, I think we would have had a VERY good shot. Here he is at an open show and I have him more collected so I will probably get grief about his head but for the WCP classes his neck is longer but his...

    Big supporter of Quiessence here, but I use it to calm my gelding and keep my "cold backed" horse happy. My vet did tell me that Epsom Salts do the same thing as Quiessence and Remission for the chesty neck...has anyone tried this? Courtney
