  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello all, Long time lurker, first time poster here. I've got a bunch of health appointments organised to investigate the horse that I will discuss below (physio this week, chiro in a month, and dentist, saddle fitter and bodyworker have already been out), but I would love to hear others'...
  2. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello. I'm looking for advice on deepening my seat at the canter and sitting back. My trainer recommends two-pointing as a way to bring by heals down and deepen my seat. This works great on a calm lesson horse--like the gelding my trainer has me on--but not so much on my all-go personal horse...
  3. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello! I have a 12 y/o mare (14hh Arabian) that I've had for 2 years now, and when I got her, she could not canter more than 2 or 3 strides at most. She had a foal at 5 y/o (before I bought her), which may have distorted her body a bit considering she's only 14hh and he's about 16hh now. She...

  5. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have a 3 year old paint horse who is very reluctant to canter in the arena. He goes alright clockwise, but fights it and jigs toward the center when asked to go counter clockwise. Once he does begin to canter he breaks down and trips on the curves and wants to cut them tight. I know he's...

    So my mare, a 9yo Standardbred who paces naturally, won't canter. SHe used to canter amazing!! She can walk and trot, but whenever I ask her to canter, she just cross canters, starts to rack, gets really fast, starts to canter and then something gets weird with her back legs. My riding...

  8. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Okay, so I have a 13 year old mare who I just really started riding again, I really got her solid on Clinton Anderson groundwork and she responded really well, she's very respectful of my space and really has full attention on me when we're on the ground, shes not spooky at all. Even though I...
  9. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I started working with my lease gelding Navigator over the summer about two years ago. At the time, he refused to take up his right lead. He was still fairly green at the time and my trainer and I figured it was probably because he was still developing and still a little unbalanced to that...

    Hello :) I have a 13 yr old Arab mare that is 14.1hh and ALL spunk. (Diamond) She gets fired up REALLY easily, and is super green. She is pretty hard to ride, but I love her, and see her has my little prodject. I have found that if I make her (and yes, I mean make her,) trot to a jump, and stop...
  11. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have a 4 year old appendix mare, who is very willing to work! However, we have hit some rough patches in the training process. She doesn't like to bend with the corners, and she doesn't like to canter. I know these are a lot of problems, but I'm posting them here because I have seen quite a...
