  1. English Riding
    Hello! (This is my first post so I apologize if something is wrong) My goal has always been to go to pony finals, but it doesn't really say anywhere what the age limit is. I am wondering how old is too old. I am a teenager (prefer not to say my exact age), but I fit onto large ponies well (I am...

  3. Horse Talk
    So I have owned my first official Pony for over a year and we have been getting weekly lessons for around 9 months or so.. I am 20 years old and feel like I have started from scratch later in my life compared to most people I know in the horsey community! My question is, are any of you...
  4. Jumping
    (bear with me for some background info -- the questions are coming) We live on a 10-acre plot in southeast Nebraska. We're currently shopping for our family's first horse. I owned a Pinto when I was growing up, but I never competed with him. My 15-year-old daughter has taken several years of...

  8. Equine Careers and Education
    I know you have to have good grades and obviously have a high level of skill when it comes to equestrian scholarships but do you actually have to own a horse? It would be a dream come true to get a scholarship to college and be able to compete so any other helpful information you'd have would be...
  9. English Riding
    First, an update! Many of you read a thread I posted a while ago about getting a job. I can happily say that I have started doing commissions for people! It's great because I don't have to drive anywhere and I can choose my own hours. Plus, it's all I really have time for because of school...
  10. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I'm going on a riding holiday for a week at the Scottish equestrian hotel. With a chance to win rosettes, I want to do my best. I've never done competitions before because I don't have my own horse and I'm looking for some tips. Also, I have been riding the same three horses for years and when I...
  11. Horse Health
    Hey, I just started leasing my horse over the summer so I've only had him for about 8 months. At home, we have rubber mats on our stalls so naturally, I had no idea about his hole-digging problem. However, at our first away-from-home competition they did not have rubber mats in the stalls and...
  12. Horse Contests
    So this is a horse knowledge quiz competition. Winner gets a smileyface :D a round of applause:clap:and the privilege of putting "Horse Knowlege Competition Winner" on their signature (if they want) :wink:. The questions will start out easy and then get harder. If you don't know the answer to...

  15. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hello, I'm new to this forum, so maybe i do something wrong. But I really need your help. I'm busy with creating an international horse game. And I came to the conclusion it's pretty difficult to create something based on reality. But still I will make it as close as I can get. My problem is...
  16. Horse Shows
    I have a few questions for all of you 4hers who enter the horse shows. This summer 2012 will be my first year in 4h and my first year showing. I know it's probably different in different counties but I was wondering... Can 1st year showers get champion and reserve champion? And is it on the...
  17. Horse Riding Critique
    OK, so this was my first barrel race ever, aside from just playing around in the arena at home. I was wondering if you could tell me what to fix for next time. The first thing I see that bugs me about it is I was not looking around the barrel, I looked straight at it... it was kind of...
  18. Jumping
    I know that a 'speed derby' is a show jumping event but what do you do and what are the rules? I am just curious to build up my horse knowledge as I'm not a real competition rider. Does anyone have a definition of a 'speed derby'?
  19. English Riding
    So awhile ago I wanted to "make it big" in the horse world. I have found out what that means now. MACLAY FINALS! I am aware it will cost money, hard work, and commitment. I have two of those things! But any advice you guys have to help get me through to my dream will help a bunch! I have about...
