  1. English Riding
    Hi! I'm able to get the canter on all the lesson horses but one, and it's because I can't get my butt to sit deep in the saddle to ask. He's a bumpy ride, sue me. I can do sitting trot fairly well, but for whatever reason when it comes time to ask this specific horse to canter, I just can't sit...
  2. Jumping
    I've been taking riding lessons for 10 months now, every other week up until about July when I started taking lessons every week. I've done lots of groundpoles and have jumped little crossrails three times now. Does anyone have any tips for a beginning jumper? I can walk/trot, and my cantering...
  3. English Riding
    I've been taking western lessons for about two years but I decided it would be a fun idea to try english. I know the saddle and the riding clothes are different but what else isn't the same? Is it any harder? I'm a total beginner to english disciplines and any advice would help.

    Hi there, I’m trying to sell my sister’s English saddle. It has been unused for 10 years and I know nothing about horse equipment. I don’t know what any of the stamps / lettering / numbers mean :) any help would be MUCH appreciated. Can someone tell me what these markings mean and what price...
  5. Horse Shows
    Hey everyone! I’ve been looking at a horse show and there is a class called “walk/trot obstacle.” I’m hoping to enter my friend in it, while I do some jumper classes. Does anybody know anything about this type of class? Thanks!! If it helps, the show is by West Palms Event Management.

    Hi, I’m trying to figure out what brand this saddle is. There’s no serial number and the top buttons are unreadable. All that is visible is “Alpha X.” It’s a monoflap.
  8. English Riding
    Hi All. So I'm a male in my mid 20's who has been taking one hour private lessons at a hunter / jumper barn for a couple months now and have really enjoyed the experience. That said I have been experiencing some discomfort / chafing in my calves. I currently ride in cotton pants with tall riding...
  9. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I have an English saddle that is really light brown in color, and I for the life of me cannot find a bridle to match it. They are all just too dark! So, I know you can dye Western saddles (as black dyed saddles are really "in" right now) but can you dye an English saddle? I know I wouldn't want...
  10. English Riding
    Help! My trainer will not let me jump and I have been riding for years. The first year I was learning how to tack up, groom and walk around. The 2nd year I was walking all by myself and even learned to also trot by myself. The 3rd year I worked on improving my trot and canter and then centered...

    I'm new to this forum but would appreciate some info from experienced horse people. I'm selling an English saddle but don't know the difference between a close contact and an all purpose. How do you differentiate? It's my daughter's saddle and she's away right now.

    Hi everyone im a beginner rider who is starting to share a horse (uk) The horse is overall awesome to learn on she is very responsive and forgiving and the perfect size for me the only downfall is she can be quite spooky at things that are new and confusing for example there was a green bin in...

    I am looking to purchase my first saddle, but don't have the money to purchase my "lifetime" saddle. I have been looking at used Ortho-Flex saddles, but I'm a bit nervous for fear that I will accidentally purchase a damaged or dangerous saddle. I am wondering if anyone can recommend a...

    My kids (ages 5 and 7) have been taking lessons beginner lessons over the summer. We likely won't be able to continue once school starts, but either way - I would like to help them practice at home. Does anyone have any tips? They ride English at the barn, but we do western at home. So far...
  16. English Riding
    My horse is a former ranch/games horse from what I know of his history. I'm transitioning him into English since he moves like an English horse and has taken to jumping and dressage much more than anything western. He takes up contact well and rounds his back well - but only in a western curb...

When I start riding again I will be riding at a different barn- this new barn offers lessons in both Western and English, whereas the one I went to previously...
  18. New to Horses
    Hi! I'm super new to this place so I hope I'm doing this right... I've been a horse girl for pretty much my entire life, but only now am going to start taking riding lessons. However, I'm not sure if I should start with English or Western. I've heard many people say both and it's gotten really...
  19. English Riding
    Hi everyone :) I'm new to the forums, so I hope I'm in the right place. I'm dealing with some nervousness of getting back in the saddle. A little bit about me: I started riding at 9 and ended up in hunter/jumper. I stopped jumping around the age of 16 (I was doing shows at 3 foot) and then...
