    Anyone Have Any Experience Re-training Bolters?!

    I bought my Thoroughbred three months off the track, and have had him for four years. He was a CHRONIC bolter, but I've made some progress with him. Have any of you had a similar training challenge?

    I Haven't Recently...

    I haven't ridden in a long while, I always found it quite therapeutic. I used to love going out into the woods, pepper would jolt his head about always give a little bit of playful grief. So calming.... The sound of hooves on the crisp leaves, sun shining through the gaps.... I...

    If Only For A Moment...i Am At Peace.

    I live a stress-filled life. When riding my horses, it all drifts away. Not in a fairy tell way, I know i still have problems and they won't disappear. But in a way that is only for a moment, which makes it that much more grand. (:
