I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

I'm 5' 8" So technically I can ride horses around 14.2 and up...and haflingers/stocky ponies :) I like larger horses, especially taller, slimmer thoroughbreds like my previous lesson horse.. Can't wait until he's unbroken, he sprained his splint bone or something so he's on stall rest for now.

Here's a picture of me riding the rodeo queen, I look horrendous but that's because I was only focusing on her and keeping her going well. Can't post any of the bad pics because it would make the barn look bad, but here's the good one! She's actually a western pleasure pony. I know I need to get my heels down, turn my toes in, lean back, lift my hands and keep my elbows at my side but oh well

That's a nice looking horse! I sometimes have to remind myself to keep my heels down and toes pointed in, sometimes I get lazy and forget, but that's only when I'm not wearing spurs.

Does/have any of you guys ridden a horse that you feel bad getting agressive with?? Like using your spurs, or having to smack em with your reins.

Yea I do. But I know it isn't really hurting them because they still ignore it. But Its one of my biggest issues. I'm suppose to be quick about ti but I hesitate for like a 10 seconds. Not suppose to do that.

I was like that HCG, I would delay my discipline, but I had to train myself to do it right when the horse acts up. I'm also very vocal when I'm working with a horse. I think it helps you and the horse a little bit, especially if you use a firm voice when disciplining. You just have to remember that it won't hurt the horse and the more you let the problem go the worse it's going to get. I never feel bad using spurs or smacking the horse because usually whenever I have to do that, it's because the horse deserves it, because he's either not listening or acting up.

Not really vocal either lol. Unless I'm by myself. But I'm getting better at it though. I know I can't hurt the horse.

I always feel terrible about hitting the horse...Not so terrible when they're trying to run me over or something, but I used to ride this super old Thoroughbred (He was like 25 or 26?) and he was so slow and would like cough and hack all the time. My trainer would make me use a crop on him and I felt like the most horrible person ever...

I often think like, "Maybe the horse doesn't WANT to trot around in an arena for an hour or jump over all this stuff..." and then I joined the track team and was like well, if I have to run around a track for two hours, they can do it for one lol.

AND YOU CAN ALL HOARD PONIES WITH ME

I only feel bad when ridding a friends 14.3 black pony. To me he's like a big puppy dog so I felt bad. He's a stubborn lil guy tho.

Ido as well. Feel bad if I'm a little to hard with my horses.. honestly the only time I get like that, is when my horse KNOWS WHAT HE IS SUPPOSED TO DO and ignores me asking him and continues to do what he wants.. that's when he gets more kicking and more hands on my rein.. I don't really and can't ride sunny with a loose rein yet just becuase he is high strung. Watt less then he was last summer.. but not where I want him yet. We are getting there.. I got him sidepassing comfortabley now.. better on one side than the other hut thaysbhow all horses are lol
