  2. Member Journals
    I wanted to start a journal documenting the progress my mare CoCo and I have made along the journey that is: showing. When I got into horses...about 10 years ago, now, I had no ambition to do anything other than just plod around on a horse. My horse, your horse, anybody's horse! I had no...
  3. Horse Shows
    If you could plan a giant road trip around North America, stopping to see popular horse shows all along the way, which ones would you stop at (and why)? I'm a fan of all varieties - sporting, dressage, English, Western, or whatever!
  4. Horse Shows
    I bought my horse back in November and she didn't come with show name. She's always just used her barn name at shows. I was wondering if it's possible to change this? If so, how would I go about doing it? I heard one lady at my barn say that she didn't want to change because it was too...
  5. Horse Talk
    So my horse came from a racing farm where they were going to put her down due to a club foot. A lady picked her up with the condition she would not be registered. She was sold to her previous owner that way and then to me. I'd like to show her in the thoroughbred classic shows but have no...

  7. Horse Talk
    Hey this is just a place for teens to talk about our fellow Equines! I don't know about you but if you show horses regularly life can be really busy and sometimes stressful. How do you cope? I know in the summer I am at the barn everyday for hours. I love it all so much and wouldnt trade it...

  9. Horse Shows
    Hi, all, I started riding when I was four, and eventually stopped for what I thought would be a short period, but my mom wouldn't let me begin again. Graduated high school and college, and recently my wonderful partner has been willing to pay for riding lessons for me! I've been riding again...
  10. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I have a 14 year old retired Thoroughbred who is very strong on the bit, especially in the field, and I have been riding him as a show horse/ fox hunter. I have tried numerous bits and we are using a kimberwick right now. He constantly resists the bit, ignores my bit commands unless they are...
  11. Horse Showmanship
    I am showing in the (Cecil, in Maryland) County Fair in the 4-H horse and pony show. I read the handbook for 4-H showing for Maryland and it says that braiding is not required, and only recommended for seniors (I am an intermediate), and only in the showmanship classes. But the parent of my...
  12. Horse Shows
    I don't know what it is, but every time I start getting ready for a showmanship class my nerves get the better of me. I either get really snappy or start crying. After we get our placing and are just chilling in the barn again I'm fine, and I'm fine for any other class. It's just showmanship! I...
