  1. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    So I’m totally lost on this whole girth sizing thing. My horse is a smaller Arabian (my first horse!) and I recently switched from an AP saddle to a CC saddle. They fit her fine with some correction pads, but the girth doesn’t. Tried my 46” fleece lined I used with my AP saddle, WAY too small...
  2. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment
    Hi! So... as you can tell from the title, I am wondering if I am ready to part board a horse yet. I have been taking lessons for a few years, and I can walk, trot, and canter. I have also learned how to back up, do two point trot, catch a horse from the field, brush it, tack it up, and untack...
  3. General Riding queries
    Hello! So I’m an intermediate beginner, and I’m currently half leasing but it’s fairly cheap for a half lease. I can hardly lesson with my half lease because the lesson times hardly ever work for me. Since I’m newer to riding, I can confidently walk and trot and I’m working on the canter. I ride...
  4. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    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. General Riding queries
    Hi everyone! So, around six weeks ago, I had my first, fairly bad fall off my horse which resulted in a cracked rib along with a lingering pain in the shoulder area. Throughout those six weeks of recovery, I couldn't wait until I got back onto my horse so I could continue on with...
  6. Horse Jobs Available & Seeking Positions
    Hello! I just started a job at a horse barn. Right now I only work for an hour and a half Saturday and Sunday for $9/hour. How much do you think I would need to work to pay for a lesson or two a week? Also, when should I bring up to my new boss if she would be willing to exchange lessons...
  7. Member Journals
    Hello! Well, I've seen a lot of people doing these journals and I thought they're actually a really neat idea! I'll be able to track my progress and look back to see how far I've come. And hey, if anyone's interested they can tag along as well! Feel free to offer your advice or opinions; there's...
  8. English Riding Queries & Competition sub forums
    My mare is an 18-year-old who I bought about a year and a half ago, very well-behaved and generally quiet but willing to work. She has been used for hunt chase by her previous owners and I'm pretty sure she's done hunt chase most of her life based on her behaviour. She's an angel at walk and...

    I love it! I had never heard of No Stirrup November, but I love it! I think it's a good challenge for anyone to take on and has great outcome regardless of how much you do of it. Im taking the challenge on!
  10. Horse Riding Critique
    Hey can some of you look at this and give me ideas as to whats wrong with my stirrups/legs etc? It may be right but it looks wrong to me and I'm finding it hard to rise at the trot. Any ideas welcome thank you :) (Note the horse is going up a small hill in the photo)
  11. General Riding queries
    I've been riding for a while now, and have tried a bunch of sports bras now. None really fit properly nor keep everything in place. I've heard that riding vests are supposed to help with this issue but I'm not too sure...advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks! :)

    I've just started riding on a new horse, he is very sensitive on the bit, however he doesn't always respond to my leg very well. He often pushes against the pressure I apply, and simply refuses to listen. If anyone has any advice or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated! :D

    Alrighty, it has been a while since I posted anything XD But here's what's up.. So I've been wanting to do cross country for a year or so now but I can't do it. I've got a green horse who's fat and lazy. I know, I know... "Use him" "break him" "he's rideable" blah blah blah. The last time I...
  14. Dressage
    So I would like to start eventing. My horse and I can jump, but we have never done dressage. I don't know where to start! There is a show next year in the summer of 2016 in which I would like to attend. What does the judge look for in the horse and rider? What class should I enter (training...
  15. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hi. I have been riding about 3 years, and about 8 months ago, I started getting into jumping. I was looking at tack, and found breasts plates and martingales. I always thought breast plates were used to control the horse's head when jumping. But, I saw a martingale does the same thing. Can...

    Hello! I have been riding hunt seat for three years and am just now starting to learn to sit the trot. The delay is because I had been riding a very bouncy, jaunty, uncomfortable OTTB (in my avatar and my "barn") and was just concentrating on different aspects of riding. Now that I've switched...
