I have lots of qualified friends at my disposal and Hannah is not only an Instructor, but a horse behavior specialist. I have known her for years and she is amazing.
That's great to hear! I was so worried about you and your horse and you have all the help you need ony our doorstep. I am relieved that your mum and dad know exactly what they are doing and are probably of much more help to you than any of us on the forum. You are lucky and I'm envious...LOL

I'm sorry faye, but the saddle was made to measure and certainly fits him as we got it from Master Saddlers. How can youtell if a saddle fits by looking at pic?

And also, please don't say anything about my instructor or parent, what gives you the right.

Pahah bluebird. Was just wondering if anyone had any help and this could test your skills =)) Troy is a complicated old sole but I love him and he loves me, he hates men but my mum is always away for work and my dad would have to help plaiting and pulling. I think that is why he kicks.

I can tell because the balance of the saddle is out. It is too high at the front (normaly means it is too narrow) and appears to be blocking his shoullder.

If you have such good advice and are unwilling to take the help offered on here then why are you asking on a forum?

I can question an instructors skill when she doesnt do anything about the bad behavior of a horse, it needs dealing with or someone is going to get hurt and then your parents will be for a lot of trouble with law suits

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

Fly me out their. Give me two hours. I will have Troy crying for mercy! :)

Hun it sounds to me like green and green. Witch this usually leads to black and blue. Troy has your number. Now you need to get him into line. It doesn't need to be cruel. Just assertive. His abuse is not the problem. That's your mind telling you that because you do not want to deal with it. Witch is fine. But I know it is not the abuse. I have a horse at my stable that was rescued and would be tazered in the face and whipped so bad he will flip out beyond your comprehenssion.


Keep the head up. And get to working on the manners with him. He will turn around fast

when was it made to measure because I can tell you it does not fit now!!

Horses change shape all the time which is why my youngsters do not get new saddles untill they are 8 or 9 and they are checked twice a year

Horses try to tell us things in ways they know how but how people don't always understand.
Saddlebag has also mentioned it!
