  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. Barn and Riding 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
    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. No new threads please. Phasing out
    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
    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. No new threads please. Phasing out
    Well, at my last lesson, my instructor decided I should start using a crop. I'm still just a beginner - been taking lessons once a week since February - but it still made me feel sort of bad. I'm doing posting trot, and having a very hard time keeping the horse at the right speed/pace while...
  7. Saddle Fitting Issues
    I am a western rider, who's interested in a dressage saddle. I have quite a few friends who ride dressage, and they have given me some tips. Still, thought I'd ask. I'm interested in one because of comfort, and I'd like a new saddle. :) I have a 9 year old Arabian with no medical issues...
  8. No new threads please. Phasing out
    I have been obsessed with horses my entire life (parents thought it was a phase). My dream is to one day have a trail horse of my own. Considering that I don't have any hands on experience, how could I get started on my way to owning my own trail horse? What I know so far- Anything I could...
  9. English Riding
    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...
  10. Jumping
    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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...
