  2. 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)
  3. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I'm usually pretty good about sitting up but recently i've been having trouble when there are too many people in the arena, my horse keeps spooking, and when i'm making tighter turns at the canter. I feel like i'm not sitting up far enough and i'm off balance so i feel like my riding is hitting...
  4. English Riding
    I have just started riding and I love it. The problem is that due to my current travel schedule for work I am only to get out to the barn on Saturday and Sunday. This would be fine, as I would honestly ride all day. But I find that as a beginner, my legs get tired after about 45 minutes. If...
  5. Horse Trainers
    Hi, I just moved to the Plymouth MA area and I'm looking for a hunter/jumper barn to continue riding at. I was wondering if anyone in this area knew of any places that were close and offered quality lessons! Thanks in advance!

  7. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    I haven't seen/met many muslim horse riders so I thought why not make a thread. Tell me about yourselves and how you got into riding and whatever else. Even if you're not muslim you're more than welcome to join :)
  8. Horse Videos
    This is me trying to teach Esmee to come when I do an owl call, like in War Horse. She's doing alright with it, although it might be better to try somewhere with less food kicking about! I'd also like to try and teach her without using treats, so hopefully she's coming for me and not her stomach XD
  9. Horse Health
    :D :D Hi guys! I really need help for college filling out this questionnaire and thought there was no better place than a website full of horse lovers! If you could fill the questionnaire out its only 10 questions and would help me out a lot! Thanks guys! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/P2FWZHP
  10. English Riding
    And I didn't die! I'm by no means that strong a bareback rider, but on the flip side, I ride my trainer's lesson horses bareback all the time. However, the lesson horses are not high strung Country Pleasure (Saddle seat) horses who are terrified of birds and startle at their own shadow. I...
  11. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi Everyone. I've had a question I've been meaning to ask for awhile but I've just been a bit too embarrassed to ask it :oops: I have a mare which I've owned for a little over a year now. She's approximately a 9 year old Quarter Horse and was what I would term green when we first got her. She's...
  12. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hey guys I just got a new loan pony and he used to be a driving pony. He's about 12 years old. He's a welsh section B or D. From driving he has a really soft mouth and whilst riding him I have no brakes when he takes off. If I pull on his bit he speeds up and sometimes when I let my reins out he...

  15. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi, I've never done horse riding before and it looks like it could be fun. I do not want to wear those silly tights, hats and jackets that the English horse riding people wear. I don't wan't to do dressage either- it looks stupid and I don't see the point of making an animal dance. I've...
  16. English Riding
    I recently began riding this horse after her main rider went away to college. It is rather difficult to bend her unless she is on the bit. I can bend her without her being on the bit, its just harder so i try to have her on the bit when we are working on something. The trouble is when i do get...
  17. Eventing
    I would like to do eventing with my horse when we are older and I was wondering what I could do now to increase our chances of being successful in the future as she is only four years old and therefore still learning the ropes of riding.
  18. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi, I've been riding for about 2 and half years. I've been jumping for just over a year but I have a problem with confidence. The biggest I can jump is about 1"6ft! Any bigger and I just freak out completely, but I really want to jump higher... I just don't have the confidence. I have lessons...
  19. Horse Talk
    My son forward this youtube video to me at work today- -such poor taste, not sure if they're trying to be funny or what. The whole idea just kinda disgusts me.
  20. Barrel Racing
    Hi! :-) My pony can really run in between barrels, but he slows a ton around turns to a trot. I try a lot of things (taking it wider, encouraging him more,) but he always trots it no matter what, and this is making it almost impossible for us to do remotely well in barrels. What do you...
