I have gone on three trail rides one of which included a half hour lesson. I can stop, steer, mount and dismount confidently. I am fairly good with trotting (posting) but have a little more trouble sitting trot although I don't hold onto the saddle while doing it. I surprised myself with finding...
I am a final year student looking for volunteers to fill this google form: https://forms.gle/B66gQoim1qV6MxDk7 about equestrian tourism experience. This survey is open to all people who have already taken part in horse riding holiday and people who wish to take part in this new tourism segment...
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 :)

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...
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...
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!

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 :)
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
: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!
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.
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...
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...
