  1. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    I am going to compete in a horse competition this summer that involves judging 2 halter classes and 2 other classes (picked from reining, western horsemanship, western pleasure, equitation flat class, hunter under saddle, trail, ranch riding) I have been trying to find practice that has only a...

    Hello everyone! My horse has been out of consistent work the last few years, not because of injury or anything, but Im looking to focus on horsemanship training with my horse as I slowly get her back into shape under saddle. We recently had a change in home for her and I figured this would be...
  3. Western Riding Queries & Competition sub forums
    Since you must have more contact with the horse's mouth in horsemanship vs loose reins in western pleasure, I feel I need to find a bit that will be more easily tolerated than the one we're using in WP. My 11-yr old gelding works very well and drops his head in a snaffle, but he is too old for...
  4. New and Returning members, introduce yourself here
    Hello! I am from the USA. I started riding while living in Buenos Aires Jan 2020 then stopped due to covid early March and then resumed mid August till end of October. I came back home to the USA. I went to Ocala, Florida and volunteered at a Horse Training Facility to learn about horsemanship...
  5. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hi everyone, I was wondering if anyone on here knows about natural horsemanship, maybe practices it with their own horse? Who is your favorite natural horseman/ horsewomen, who've you maybe seen on youtube or at clinics? I am just looking for good people to learn from because I am very...

    Hey guys, I'm pretty new here so sorry if I have put this in the wrong place. I was wondering if people would be interested in telling me their favorite horsemen/women in regards to horsemanship as I'm going to spend a lot more of my time during quarantine focusing on these videos etc. Why are...

    Can I even start a horse journal without actually having a horse? Well, I'm going to anyway. The purpose of this thread is to keep myself organized, and to keep track of my thoughts and progress. I like to gain knowledge on a subject as much as I can before jumping into it. A little about...
  8. Western Riding Queries & Competition sub forums
    So I am pretty new to showing horses and I need some clarification on all these different terms! I was looking at shows when all these terms popped up that seem very similar to me. Could I get some help on defining these terms in relation to western horse shows? Western pleasure Horsemanship...
  9. Member Journals
    I encourage folks to question “the way they’ve always done things” with their horses. An introspective assessment, rather than seeking “answers” by imitating others, frequently leads people to an uncomfortable stage, of not so “pretty” revelations about themselves, behaviors and patterns in...

  11. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hey guys! I'm working on pivots for HMS patterns. So far we've got a "correct" pivot down under saddle...but it's really slow. I'm not totally sure how to add a speed. It helps when I wear spurs but I prefer not to use them, and would like to find a different method of getting him motivated to...
  12. Equine Careers and Education
    Hello ! I am new in this forum, and I am also new in this country, as I am French. I am a student in management, but I always ride horses since I am little. I always worked with the trends of Ethology, horsemanships and horse behaviour, and I would like to get a course. In France we have a...

  14. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Has anybody had any experience with this method? Seems like a nice one, but I just found out about it last week so I haven't really researched much. Is it a newer method? Said he got some training by Parelli. Just curious what others think of it and mostly if you have done it yourself!
  15. General Riding queries
    So, I am heading off to college in the near future, and I hope to try out for the IHSA western team if I get into my top college (the only one I'm looking at with a western team) However, there is a slight issue. I have never been able to afford to show nor have my own horse. By the time I am...
  16. Horse Talk
    I am not pointing fingers, and I know I still need to work on my horsemanship, but most of the problems I read about on the various topics are a result of poor horsemanship. I know that in todays fast track world everyone wants quick results.....a majic bit, saddle, or halter to make everything...
