  1. Horse Showmanship
    I'm going to my first show in about eight weeks. I have only decided on doing one class, just a walk-trot class. Walking and trotting is second nature to me, duh, but my instructor started to tell me about spacing between other horses and doing circles and cutting across the arena to avoid...
  2. Horse Shows
    I am organizing a couple of schooling shows for the barn that my horses are at, and need someone to explain the different gaited classes to me (I grew up showing stock horses and hunter/jumpers; it was a rarity in my area to see someone with a gaited horse). There are quite a few TN Walkers and...
  3. Horse Shows
    I really want to start showing hunters but I know absolutely nothing about it. I've only shown twice in my life..:oops: So basically I need to know everything one should know to not end up looking like a fool in the ring. Like for example I have a brown saddle and a black bridle... I'm assuming...
  4. Horse Shows
    I love showing! Although I don't do a ton of it, I enjoy all of the careful preparation, the excitement of going to a new place with my horse, and the satisfaction of a great ride. But what I don't love is the pre-class butterflies. I stress an worry a great deal as I prepare to ride. What...

    Hello, First of all - hello everyone. I am new here and I am looking forward to experiencing this community! I am a beginner in horse riding, but I learn very quickly, at least according to my instructor (I was introduced to cantering after just a few lessons although first only on a pony)...
  8. Horse Shows
    I got a show bill for a show I'm going to at the end of this month, and because this is the first show I am going to, I am wondering exactly what happens in the following classes: Intermed. Eq. on the flat, Jr/Am 2' Hunter u/s, Schooling Hunter u/s, and Jr/Am Hunter o/f 2'. I was wondering...
  9. Horse Talk
    I recently was almost offered a job. It was, no joke, my dream job. A massive stable an hour away, three barns full of jumpers and dressage and lesson horses, two indoor arenas, two out door arenas, a round pen, tons of pasture space. It would have been a live-in job as a Barn Manager...
  10. Horse Shows
    I'm planning on taking my project horse to an open show soon. I am working him from being a trail horse into being my show horse, but this is going to be his first show. So in your opinion, how many classes are too many (minus showmanship and halter, I suppose)? Should I be conditioning my horse...
