  1. English Riding
    I'm ready to invest in some good boots, my current UK leather ones are 15 years on me, and I bought them used. It's time. Hoping to get advice on the better brands you would have me consider. My priorities are - * a great fit, comfortable fit. * a great feel with the horse, supple ankle, and...
  2. Horse Talk
    My mom and I share a horse together and we have for 2 years. We bought out mare as a 4 year old and she's taught me a lot. she's very quiet and well behaved but i always felt like we weren't a very good match. I want to compete in show jumping but out of all the competitions we've done we have...
  3. Horse Grooming
    My horse picks up her feet just fine, but when I start to pick them out she hits me with her tail.

I just wanted to know some of your...

    Hi there, I have been sharing a pony now (13.2hh grey gelding, 12yrs old) since september 2010, he's always been a bit wary of things but recently he's gotten a lot worse. Before easter, i'd just started to get him hacking out alone and with a bit of encouragement and bravery from me it was...
