  1. Driving
    I'm thinking about getting into driving, I am currently a Hunter, but I'm thinking of picking up driving on the side. I'm just going to try it out for a bit, any tips?
  2. Riding and Barn Wear
    Hey guys, I'm new here. I've been trying to find a place with people who understand what I'm taking about. This is a long shot but any advice/help is greatly appreciated. Also I apologize if my wording is confusing and/or more info if needed. I'm happy to explain more:) I haven't ridden in...
  3. English Riding Queries & Discussions
    So I’m a beginner rider and have a solid walk and trot. I’ve began cantering now on my half lease horse and I’m having a lot of trouble. On another lesson horse at a different barn I take lessons at, I can sit his canter fairly well. Still not the prettiest but at least I can sit the motion with...
  4. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    So I’m a beginner rider and started a half lease recently. I have a confident walk and trot and am working on the canter. The horse I’m half leasing is older, around 23 I think and is a Belgian Appaloosa cross. I have recently started to canter him and I can’t get his strides at all, I keep...
  5. English Riding Queries & Discussions
    We recently bought a young ex-racehorse stallion, and he's quite nice. Calm and somewhat responsive but for the life of me I cannot get him to trot. There is nothing wrong with him because both my brothers can get him to trot. I start by giving him a verbal cue (clucking), then I lightly...
  6. Saddle Discussions & Saddle Fitting Queries

    I've been taking lessons for 10 months now. I'm a working student right now, I ride, on average, 3 times a week. I ride the same horse every lesson and a few different ones when I work. When I'm at the barn I feed all horses (about 20), hay, water, clean (sweeping, scrubbing buckets etc..), and...
  8. Show Jumping and using jumping in training
    I have a 16 yr old Holstiener cross, George who I have rode as a dressage horse since he was three years. Recently he seems completely over dressage work. He is harder to soften and just seems bored (I have to say that since he is a bit older and not as much of performer as he once was, I am...
  9. Horse Shows
    My husband and I are going to start our little girl in riding lessons within the next 6 months or so and I was curiousabout the world of showing. expenses, travel, at what level & age do they start? Do you have to lease a horse if you don't have one? How often do you train a week? Cost of...
  10. Horse Talk
    I've been riding off and on for quite some time. I still consider myself a beginner. I broke my arm from a riding fall about 10 years ago so I still get scared sometimes on the back of a horse but I still find it too fun to stop riding altogether. As of now I only walk and trot, too scared to...
