    I've never heard of them either. Seems a bit of overkill when there are spurs that can poke and prod badly enough when in the wrong hands -- I mean on the wrong feet. Why the need for a zap as well?

    No, cyrus, the snorting of a relaxed horse occurs when they start to use their back, I think. The head and neck will be in a comfortable position.

    'Real' dressage is good for the horse. It's just...

    So, to be clear, we have at least 3 types of snorting (let's disregard the wild snorty snort of a suspicious stallion in a Disney film).

    1. Relaxed snort

    Yes, I'm not talking about tense snorting at all.

    But I am sure I've heard that this 'dragon breathing' is not the best. I really don't know, hence the question.

    Horses that snort at every stride

    Something I am reading at the moment mentions 'dragon breathing'. Apparently this is when a horse snorts at every stride. I have seen (and heard) horses do this: racehorses, dressage horses...

    Yeah, it's funny isn't it.

    I borrowed it from Horse and Hound Forum, where I have been spying, incognito, for a while now. It's a very active forum.

    Would love to see some others from here...

    Hopefully cyrus is safe. If she's in an evacuation centre I suspect she hasn't got Cyberhorse on her mind. Besides, she might not have access to any means of getting online.

    Hi guys,

    We are blanketed in thick smoke this morning -- well, it rolled in maybe about 8.00pm yesterday evening. We shut everything up, of course.

    Sorry about the vague title. My question is this:

    Has anyone ever seen a three year old mare make gestures to her good friend, a gelding, about wanting a drink from him? Why would a 3yo still be...

    I suspect it would be difficult these days to find a Hanovarian noseband that was made to my linking. The modern Hanovarian noseband is made to be done up tight, using leverage. Not my cup of tea.

    Hanging a hay net on a gate does not sound high enough, and using a gate does not sound like a safe 'background' for a hay net, to me.

    Poor Willis. I've never seen such a bored, brain-dead horse.

    Surprisingly I lasted 2.33 minutes I think, but I was watching Willis. Also, this weather makes me lethargic.
