  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    So the feral project horse I bought back in april has improved so well, people always think he's a different horse! My only problem is that I have gotten injured from him before... I consider myself a pretty experienced rider and horsewoman, but I just can't get through to him in this one case...
  2. Horse Riding Critique
    Hi all, I had my first canter a couple of days ago. I ended up loosing my stirrups and hanging over the side of the horse before I could pull myself back on when we slowed. I tried again after that and again, lost my stirrups and fell off the horse (I did get straight back on though). I have...
  3. Rider Wellness
    So back in December(ish) I had a bad fall. I fell and hit my back off of a snow plow blade (smaller one that attaches to pickup trucks.) Being me, I immediately got back on and continued on a trail ride afterwards, on a horse who bucks. I think my adrenaline held off the pain until I got home...
  4. General Riding queries
    Alright so, I haven’t been riding very long but already I know: I will fall. It’s inevitable. I’m a list lover so I’ve created a little list of the four things that will inevitably happen to all riders but are scary to those who don’t spend a lot of time around horses, and at the very top, of...
  5. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have started putting my horse (8 year old) in a better outline by gathering up my reins with her on the bit (vertical from poll to nose) to engage her hind quarters. Her back end has started to go under herself like she is falling at times and I have felt a few back twitches at times as well...

  7. Horse Health
    So I am writing a speech on the whole HYPP controversy, and I keep coming across the same secondhand warning about the risk of an HYPP horse collapsing while being ridden and injuring/killing the rider. Does anyone have any examples of this actually happening to back this up?
  8. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    My mares mane has all of a sudden just started falling out. She hasn't been wearing a neck rug and from what I can tell she has't been rubbing it. I haven't put anything on it for the past month or so either. When I just run my hand through it or brush it a, whole lot just comes out, roots and...
  9. Show Jumping and using jumping in training
    Falling, ouch! What's the worst fall you've had in all your time riding? Usually I'm pretty good about falling. Don't get me wrong, sometimes on the back of a jump I'll spring onto the horse's neck but I haven't actually fallen into the dirt for quite some time. My worst fall ever was on a...
  10. Horse Videos
    When we got Zlatograd (the horse) 1.5 years ago, he was a "problem horse". We bought Z from a riding school, which was selling him because of a bucking/rearing problem (test riding video: ). After a couple of months he stopped those rodeos, but he's still a little unpredictable sometimes. We...
