    Which of these two Circle Y's would you recommend? I mainly trail ride on my AQHA gelding. The tooled saddle is a standard tree. The non-tooled saddle is a Circly Y Flex Lite. All things even (price, fit, etc.), which saddle do you think is the better deal at $450? How do the Flex Lite trees...
  2. Horse Training
    Hello there :) Of all the times I`ve watched horses being ridden, and especially lunged, they have they're noses pointed in towards the center of the circle and they're body is curved. How do I get my mare to do this?! X) When I ride her in a circle, I put my right leg on her and...

    Circle Y saddle - 15" seat - Semi quarter horse tree - 7" gullet - oxbow aluminum sitrrups - 'park and trail' - original back cinch included (not pictured) Very very nice quality leather, nothing fake about this saddle at all. I just have no more use of it. It has a ton of life still...

    Hello, I will be jumping for the first time in the show ring tommarow for fun and I have never done a courtesy circle! What is it for and how do you do it. Thank you!

    So this is a hypothetical question no one has been able to give me a straight answer on yet. Maybe someone here can give me more insight. The situation: So the horse you are riding decides to be a brat, and refuses to turn right. Every time you cue to go right, he turns his head to the left...
  6. Horse Training
    Okay, so I have a bit of a problem with my horse. Scratch that, alot of problems with him. But thats a bit off track, and I'll get into it later. So here's the deal; My cousins moved into this place with a horse on it, and then they called me, wondering if I wanted to ride him. I said sure...

    I take weekly riding lessons and we often practice circles, especially making them bigger and smaller. I really need some advice on how to use my legs and my seat (with little use of the reins) to ride around the circle and change it's size. I struggle to keep my horse from making the circle too...
  8. Horse Training
    I haven't been able to really work with my horses for a long time (about two years...), and FINALLY I tried to lunge my horse today... only to find that it seems she's totally forgotten! I tried every method I knew and even turned to a bunch of articles and videos for help, but nothing's worked...
  9. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Several weeks ago I was riding a perfectly sound pony with shoes and everything in a perfectly maintained ring. We were cantering (not very fast) around a not very tight corner and suddenly he tripped over his feet and fell on his face. I fell and got kicked and banged up. The horse just got...
  10. Horse Health
    For a few months now, my horse has been off on his circles to the right (at a trot), but looks as if he's lame on the left front. There is no swelling anywhere , nor any "hot" areas. I've tried circles in both regular grass and in a deep sand round pen. He does seem to be a little more...
