Ouch that's hard to watch. Cute girl and horse but she is sooo in his mouth. She kicked him go and then yanked back stop. Poor horse must have been confused. Then when she turned him to the right, she had his left rein so tight he could barely go right. Yikes
You have to say it's a kid though. That's why I put kids on my pony who can handle it and doesn't care. He was used for handicapped kids to ride so that's a plus lol.

He knows when you're happy, He knows when you're comfortable, He knows when you're confident, And he always knows when you have carrots.

That looks like what's going on at our house right now . My daughter is also 7 and the riding skills are about the same lol. I thought it was just us so watching that has made me feel better. Our arena is going up this weekend so we have better lesson space. YAY!

This is what we're using to build our "arena".

Field Guardian Stirrup Post 10pk - Statelinetack.com

It's 150' x 100'. The posts, 18 wooden post tensioners, and webbing cost us $510 including the delivery charges. We bought 6 4x4 posts (one for each corner and two for the gate) for another $35, and the gate for $79.99.

We put in a regular gate because of the size, but you can also make a web "gate" with a spring they have on the site as well. The spring costs a few bucks.

To make a smaller area, or "round" pen, it would be much less than what we paid, and we got out cheap.

I got the idea from another horse forum, and they didn't use corner posts at all. We chose to for reinforcement since we have such sandy soil.

Some of the things I like about it is that it's cheap, it's flexible so if anyone were to fall or be run into it you won't have broken bones from THAT impact anyway, and it's super easy to maintain/repair.

ETA: We have a round pen and a much smaller paddock that I've used for her lessons. She's gotten really bored really fast. The arena size is allowing us to add some obstacles to work around, like barrels and poles so she can start working on patterns and such. We've done this in our front pasture, but it's really larger than I feel comfortable with without her on a lead line. But, it helps keep them both more interested in it :)

Food for thought :)

Say what you want about crosses & breeding them, but I sure am glad someone bred this one Not to mention she does more than the average registered horse...but annnnyway!

This is my Standardbred/Quarter Horse mare. Everyone thinks she is a Morgan though!
This is the best conformation picture I can find of her right now, please excuse how overweight she was. She didn't respond too well to flax seed, she blew up like a balloon LOL so she was taken off and is now at a good weight.






She is an awesome horse and I swear she could do ANYthing. I mainly do gaming (barrel racing, etc) with her but I am playing around with pleasure and we'll be making our debut next week! Western/english pleasure, eq and trail is what we'll be doing. I am going to do obstacle challenges and hunter paces, as well as train her to drive - she already ground drives. Dressage is in her far future also. Who knows what else, she's capable of anything!

Don't mind me, she must be a good horse if she can run a decent pattern with me getting in her way LOL




(she's a jumper at heart)








Okay okay, I'm done!

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

This is Kaydee...She is Morgan QH cross. We do everything (english hunter, jumper, eventing, western games, trailr ides, etc.). She is built like a QH and has the super calm dispostion of one, but also got a bit of the Morgan pig headedness lol.
