    It has been a long time since I've needed to saddle shop, and I'm having a hard time of it. My saddleseat horse recently went hunt, and he's much happier, but my current hunt saddle doesn't fit him. I like to ride in a flatter seat with soft knee rolls, and I'm having a hard time finding...

    Hey all! I'm starting to dive into the hunt seat equitation world. I just wanted to see what tack items you all use/would recommend? Also what tack brands, or what kinds of boots (if any) you use to school and show your horse. And of course any tips would help! Thank you! :runninghorse2:

    Hello! I have been riding hunt seat for three years and am just now starting to learn to sit the trot. The delay is because I had been riding a very bouncy, jaunty, uncomfortable OTTB (in my avatar and my "barn") and was just concentrating on different aspects of riding. Now that I've switched...

    Hi everyone, I was just wondering if one of you could answer some questions for me (I did contact one of the coaches, but haven't heard back yet). So here it is: 1. Can you ride on the IHSA Hunt Seat team without any prior riding experience? I thought I read something in Young Rider about...

    What do you think about this appendix gelding's bloodlines? What would he be expected to excel in? I know Artful Investment is a big deal, but I don't know much about him. This gelding is a 16.3HH black all around gelding with a big motor apparently. Thanks in advance for the help...

  9. Ridden Showing, Hunter/Jumper, Equitation
    So when I ride patterns, my horses head is up like the whole time. While it's not perfectly consistent on the rail, it's a lot better than it is when during a pattern. Obviously that's not very attractive or correct so if anyone has any suggestions on how I could fix that, it would be...

    BACKGROUND: Hey! So I have an 8 year old QH gelding who I show HUS and Eq. Last year we showed W/T becasue it was his first year showing and same with mine! We placed very well but he never really had the hunter frame because we did a lot of dressage with him. He almost always rides with his...

    I am doing an equestrian based project for my intercollegiate team. The topic I chose was one I had been wondering about: How did riders make the transition between fox hunting and our modern hunt seat competitions? While I've found a few barely informative paragraphs across the internet, I...
