If NO is a possible answer, perhaps I can help you sort out how to have your horse ready for hunting when you receive your fixture card this fall. Preparing your field hunter for the coming season begins NOW! If you wait until the leaves drop, it will be too late for “repairs”.
Ask yourself, “Did I have any trouble with my horse this past season?”
Problems might include: running away, not stopping, refusing to jump, fighting the bit, shaking the head, bucking, rough gaits and falling down.
