    Hello everyone! I am wanting to teach riding lessons. I am 17yrs old and have been riding for 7+ years consistently as well as competing for 1-2 years. (We owned horses and I rode when I was little but we had to sell and move to town for a short time). My mom and I work and train horses and we...

    So I had set up riding lessons, I have posted the pictures of it and I had a great time. Couldn’t wait to go again. And then things fell apart. I mean I should have been a bit suspicious from the get go, but I guess I was too excited to notice. I arrived at my first lesson on 5-5-19. My...

  5. Horse Tack and Equipment
    So pretty much I bought an expensive leather breatplaste (from horze.com) , it only has buckles on it with no clips, so it's confusing me more than I thought it would. I have absolutely no clue how to put it on, (or use the buckle) so if anyone could explain to me how (as soon as possible...

    I have a problem with my eq, my lower legs swing forward. I know you are supposed to keep your shoulder, hip, and heal in line for good eq, but my lower legs are always forward and It's really hard for me to keep them straight underneath of me so my heal will be in line. What kind of exercises...

    I am a beginer rider and I am just gaining control of my horse. I can trot him just fine. I am having trouble with the lope. When we canter I go high in the saddle then slam down on his back. I don't wanna do that cause it hurts his back. I also have been riding him in a halter on trails. I am...

  11. Trail Riding
    So a couple of my friends and I are thinking on going onto a trail this Monday. I have a flier that says you have to have a horse pass. I was reading up on it on the internet and it kept saying 16 years and older has to carry one. I turn 16 next month and my friends are already 16. Does that...
  12. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I give horseback riding lessons to kids ages 5-13 and am trying to spread the word! I am not a professional but the lessons are very safe and the kids learn a lot. They're good for beginners to learn about caring, grooming, feeding, and tacking up horses the western way. If you know anyone in...
  13. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Alright, so lately I've been entertaining the idea of getting another horse, seeing as I had to get rid of my old boy back in September, due to financial problems. We're back on our feet, and my parents said that if I get a job, and can pay for board, I could definitely get a horse. But, in...

    My 13 year old daughter riding our Magpie bareback and bitless with a rope halter and lead rope. I really am a firm believer that this is the best way to get a really good feel for the movement of the horse under you and gain a good seat. I think everyone should spend some time loosing the...

    Why ride horses? By Stacey Sheley The morning is crisp, a breeze blows across the field bringing the smells of dying fall leaves, wet ground, old wood from the fence, and the scents of the heavens to my nose. I see the sun hitting the droplets of moisture in the early morning air before a...
