  1. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi everybody, I ride western and I tried a different horse today (and kept my heels down). This horse really wanted to move, but my instructor wanted me to keep her to a walk. She kept breaking her into a trot, and I was told that I was jumping to the reins too quickly to slow her down. I tried...
  2. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi, I've been working on my canter these past few lessons and was wondering if I could have some help with my hands. I have very soft and quiet hands at the trot, however I am unsure how to use them when cantering as the movement is obviously quite different. My instructor has told me to move...
  3. Horse Training
    We recently added a little 9 year old Quarab mare to our "zoo". She rides in a rope nose hackamore and is amazing on the trails. She crosses water, plays in the pond, logs, anything you ask. Walk, trot, nothing phases her. We took her trail riding with 5-6 other horses, some gaited, some normal...
  4. Western Riding
    Hi everyone :) luckily enough I'm not having real problems with my horse now, but he took a frustrating habit and I need your advice! I love racing with friends in the fields.. We used to always win, I just gave him the start and he would do the rest :D During the last months we haven't raced...
  5. Horse Training
    just wondering if you guys have some techniques or exercises for a very high strung mare. she is super spooky, very very fast and HATES contact with the bit, she fights it like crazy (its a rubber "happy mouth" bit.) she has a thing for throwing her body all over the place (while paying...
  6. English Riding
    I have a 16 y/o OTTB. He is extremely fast when cantering. Actually, when I ask him to canter, he begins a gallop and is not smooth when transitioning. I don't know if it may be the bit because my hands are to hard (but if I don't use enough he will still go pretty fast in trot and canter). Is...
  7. Horse Training
    Hi guys, I've had a few Off Track Thoroughbreds now, and they've all been really different. Velevt, my new one, is a real sweetie to me on the ground, dopey and affectionate. To ride, she is nice but: -She is very forward -She only stops when you put pressure on the reins. I can say whoa and...
  8. Jumping
    Okay, so here's a little back info regarding this question - Meet Diamond. Diamond is 14.1 hh, arab, and spunky as a chili pepper. I love her to death, and she is a blast to ride, but she is NOT a hunter horse. So I was thinking - Jumpers!! I have always just loved the fast pace of Jumpers...
  9. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    So, Freedom (Spooky Spook) is a few weeks into her second month of "formal" training and I experienced her canter last night. Hah! Watched my trainer first and all I could think was, OMG &*%$#! It was blazing fast! Apparently, she has slowed down a lot too...lol. So, tried it out, managed...

    Wow I have not been on here for a very long time! Well hi everyone! I have been riding a new pony at the barn named Miner. I'm going to be showing him this weekend also.

  12. Trail Riding
    *Hi there, I got my first horse four months ago. She's a 4yo cob, 14.2hh.* Things are going really well for us, only now I've started hacking with friends and not the school rides. I remember the first and only time I cantered with her back just a week before I got her. Since I have stuck to...
  13. English Riding
    Usually, the horses I used to ride at my old stable, where two tough ponies. I would have to use a crop on the one a lot more then the other, but I still used crops on them. For the horse I ride (Bee) at my new stable, she is really sensitive. You barley have to put pressure on her sides to make...
  14. Barrel Racing
    He is a 3 years old Appaloosa Green Broke Owned by Me. He wont be racing until about 4 1/2 or 5 years old. So what do you think? The 2 videos of him are just him running fast
  15. Horse Training
    My horse was bought a little green at the canter. He can't get his lead all the time on the ground or uner saddle. But when he does get his lead he is "at the race track" and throws his head when you try to slow him down. He's a great horse with this as his only issue. My trainer tells me to...
  16. Horse Training
    I'm currently leasing a thoroughbred named Simon. He's athletic and talented but out.of.control on a jumping course. I need tips to help him relax instead of charge at the jumps. Methods I've tried: 1) Halting before and after jumps. 2)Giving him a very loose rein. 3) Constant circling. 4)...
