      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Biting question...

Recommended Posts

My in-laws and I went for a ride not to long ago and it wasn't all that fun for me. My father-in-law was in front on a horse who puts his head down and just gos, and won't go if another horse is in front of him. The next horse in line was dead broke with a 16 year old girl riding him and they were great (especially since this horse used to not like girls..) then there was me in last place just in case the 16 year old had a problem, got behind, etc. My problem is the horse I was ridding was biting the horse in front of him on the butt almost the WHOLE time! I think the problem was that he thinks he "needs" to be in front. I tried turning him around and keeping him back and nothing worked! He is also to skiddish for other people to ride and being almost 16 hands, its a long way down. Anyone else have this problem or any suggestions?

My guess is that the horse you were riding was just being a brat. Holding him back or making him move his feet in another direction may have helped.However, not knowing your skill of riding and not knowing the level of training of the horse you were riding...it's difficult to know the exact right answer to give you.

I'm an experienced rider, I've been riding as long as I can remember. And the horse I was riding is trained. He is an 8 year old quarter horse. We have brought him out west elk hunting and he did really well. We were hoping to use him to pack out elk (we brought three horses that year) but never needed them. The only bummer is schedules are full and we don't get out as much as we'd like, so the horses don't get ridden as much as needed. We have one thats about 17, but shes the "kid" horse and I think she gets used the most when we get visitors smile
