  1. Horse Shows
    Hey everyone reading this, I just joined this site today to ask a question that's been bugging me all day, how high are XC and SJ jumps in the Introductory level eventing? Was hoping I would find something after a google search, but sadly nothing came up. Thaks for reading, See ya soon, Lara :)
  2. Horse Shows
    Hey all! I am looking for a show name for an unregistered bay Andalusian/TB cross gelding. He is a very type-y Andalusian, the most curious, playful, and sensitive horse I've ever met. His barn name is Brodie aka Theodore aka Theo (he came with all three names), but doesn't have a show name...
  3. English Riding
    So I recently started looking at this mustang named Mo. He is 7 years old and 15hh. He seems like the perfect horse for me. He looks to have really good movement and a decent jump. He also looks really brave! He's only been saddle trained for about 2 years and has recently started jumping. I...
  4. Horse Training
    Hey guys, my horse gets real nappy on xc and digs his toes in and doesn't want to go anywhere. He loves showjumping and also loves to do some cross country schooling but as soon as you get to an event he just won't go anywhere and tries his hardest to not do it. He loves going hunting as well...

  7. Horse Training
    I just recently bought a 15 year old paint mare. I ideally would like to ride her in the local hunters or lower level eventing. The issue is that with any pressure applied to the bit and she puts her head straight up in the air. What can I do to get her to accept the bit and round up? She has...

  10. Eventing
    Hi all, Looking for any opinions/experiences with both getting a horse fit 'enough' and what is fair. I am looking to do a low level 5 ODE in a couple months. Level 5 consists of 50cm MAX height of jumps both SJ/XC and the dressage test is walk/trot and goes for about 4-5 minutes. So nothing...
  11. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hello! I am currently looking for a new pair of XC boots because my last pairs have not worked too well for my pony. He jumps fairly straight and doesn't knock his legs together, the problems are them getting wet in the water jump and rubbing his legs, scraping and breaking if he hits a jump...

  13. Tack and Equipment Classifieds
    Hi all!! I'm posting my wonderful 19" XW Berlin Saddle for sale. I haven't had a horse for a couple years, and I have no need for my own saddle. This saddle is in great condition, lightly used, and I bought it new about three and a half years ago. It's extremely comfortable!! I'm sad that I have...

    I'm currently in a jumping class that when the weather gets better will turn into eventing, but right now we're working on a finding a horse that fits us and that we will keep for the rest of the year. I'm on a mare that I love but is really sensitive, so she reads me really well. Which, when...
  15. Horse Boarding
    Hi everyone... Okay, I'm having a bit of a hard time finding what I'm looking for. I know there are a lot of barns here that aren't very publicly advertised, so I'm hoping some of you know some of those great word of mouth/buried Facebook type of barns:) I have a 16.3-17.1hh, gelding who I am...
  16. Horse Training
    HI, I am looking into buying an OTTB from a local racetrack to train for eventing, so that means that it will not have been restarted at all... and I have some questions because this is totally new territory for me... I already have one in mind, a big bay gelding with a really solid build and...
  17. Jumping
    Hello, i'm new to this website, but I've googled some questions on it and usually they're answered here so why not give it a shot? I have a 8 year old Quarter horse, who i'm currently training to jump competitively. He was doing good after a couple months of training, he started knocking rails...
  18. Eventing
    Hi everyone! I am being given a new jump saddle for my 18th birthday (yay!!!) and I'm hoping for some recommendations. Obviously, I'll have to make sure any saddle I (read: my dad) buy will fit both myself and my horse before I buy it. My local tack shop is usually lovely about letting me take...
  19. English Riding
    My horse and I are new to English riding (2 years), and my horse was originally a gamer. I can't get her to drop her head and tuck her nose... Any Ideas? She won't do the thing where you hold the reins up and alternate pulling or whatever. I've tried half halting, any other ideas?
  20. 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...
