  1. Horse Training
    Hi guys! I am so excited I found this community! I am a first time horse-owner of a Palomino Gelding (although my husband grew up on a cattle ranch so he is VERY familiar with the horse life) named Buckshot! This guy does it all! We got him from our best friends who used him on his cattle...
  2. Horse Training
    G'day. I'm looking for ideas of tricks to teach my mare. I'd love it if people could comment some trick suggestions and best methods of teaching said trick/s. Would love some tips also on learning to ride bareback. I have never done so before, but my mare just broke her saddle and it'll take a...
  3. New to Horses
    hi :^) I'm a student in central Iowa and a job at a horse barn was pretty much dropped into my lap from the heavens (my mom's friend Pam) after I expressed interest in riding again. I'm a little bit rusty, but I've been riding a little morgan named Fritz and an obscenely overweight fjord named...
  4. Trail Riding
    Hi, I wasn't sure what category of riding this should have come under but i mostly trail ride so here goes: My horse, as far as im aware was backed and trained purely undersaddle, and has never been ridden bareback. He doesnt have any back issues and goes soundly in a saddle, so when i hopped up...

    Hello! I am getting back into riding after 20ish years off :) so, I am pretty much a beginner rider. I recently bought the Ultra ThinLine Comfort Bareback Saddle Pad after reading so many great reviews. Problem is, I feel very unstable with it on, like there is too much padding and it's...
  6. Horse Pictures
    Guess what- I finally was able to dress up and take pictures with Tessa! I can't believe I actually have a horse to do this with (I know, I know, I've had Tessa for over 2 years but sometimes it still amazes me) My amazing friend came out and took some fantastic pictures with Tessa and I! I'm...

    For the love of baby jesus, someone please help me fix my terrible posture. But also please read this first. For as long as I can remember, I've always ridden somewhat chair seated. It tended to vary depending on what horse I was riding and what saddle I was using - sometimes my chairseat was...

    So lately I have seen people all over youtube and instagram riding with these neckropes - usually made of paracord or some kind of unbreakable rope. It has become an extremely popular tool for bareback riding and tackless riding. I can see why people like them, they're great for training your...
  9. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi, If any of you have read the "Gentle Art of Horseback Riding", or "How Your Horse Wants You to Ride", you have no doubt seen that Ms. Buklin prefers to start new riders bareback, with something that she calls a "grounding strap." If you "google" "grounding strap", your "hits" will be about...

  16. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hey guys... My thoroughbred mare does very well bareback however despite being healthy and fit, she has kind of a sensitive bony back which makes bareback riding a pain for her. If I get on her completely bareback she acts very ****ed and does not want to move forward, I can tell it hurts her...

    I have just recently started jumping bareback (the cross rails I did before don't really count cause the horse just canters them like a pole) and I am having trouble holding my "2-point" (jumping position) for the duration of the jump. Any tips?:grin::think:
