  1. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    This situation happens to involve a leaser on one of my horses. The horse is a lovely 18 hand thoroughbred gelding, trained in dressage up to level 3 before he was sold to me. He's never been an anxious horse, never reared or bucked unless you were lunging him. During the times when he was...

  3. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I've been riding at the same facilities for over 6 years now, attending every week and progressing as much as I can. It's not an official riding school, rather it is owned by an older lady who focuses on relationships between the horse and rider. I am largely self taught due to this. Anyway, I...

  5. Horse Breeds
    A lot of people I speak to seem to think Arabs are crazy. I'd like to know your opinions on them, as they seem to get a bit of bad press What do they excel at? How trustworthy are they? And how even/hot tempered are they? Thank for your input :-)
  6. Horse Training
    I hear hot and cold things about Parelli. I have several people at my barn that are more than willing to teach me (one at level 4 and other at 3). But I've heard that it can mess up the horse, pretty badly. I really liked the bit about improving your relationship with the horse, but some of...

  8. Hoof Care
    Hello, I need help! My horse, Riddler, has been known to have really bad feet, he is the master at loosing shoes or having bad feet. I haven't been able to ride him for a week or two now and we have been using Hoof Alive which I'm guessing is working. Today was this first time out in the...
  9. Jumping

One of my hands is on my ponys neck while the other is welll... just down there.. but it looks like I'm doing an automatic release.. but I'm not. It's really weird and I have no Idea...

  11. Dressage
    How? I know 'bad' dressage is unengaged hindquarters, on the forehand, forced head position, falling into the corners, etc etc, but how in the world can you tell? Especially from pictures, but even in videos it's kinda hard for me to identify. So here are some more specific questions: How can...
  12. Horse Training
    When I go get Secret she hides behinds her "girlfriends". The horses don't seem to mind that but she squeezes in between them so that i can't get in. I cluck at her and I try to encourage her to move by swinging the lead rope a little. She moves but then i walk after her. Plus I stay calm...
  13. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I have 4 saddles from Schleese saddlery (located in Canada but goes all over the world) and was happy with them. Then my new horse, Roo, started getting worse and worse in dressage until finally he reared with my trainer, which is 100% out of character for him. We looked at his saddle and even...
  14. Horse Training
    So, I'm new to the forum, and im hoping someone can help me out. I am a fifteen year old horse lover and I have two horses. Jack, a bay 8 year old quarter horse gelding, and Tulie, a chestnut 5 year old Dutch Warmblood mare. My aunt built a barn on her property that she owns with my grandparents...
