  1. English Riding
    I saw this show jacket on facebook and I'm absolutely in love with it.. But what discipline would you wear it for? It has almost the classic Hunter look, but it has 4 buttons? And it looks almost too "formal" for show jumping?? Unless that's just me. I don't have any experience with showing as...
  2. Horse Pictures
    I am no professional by far, but I think I got some okay photos for not having a fancy lens on my DSLR! This was my first time taking photos at a show (and my first time taking photos of horses in general). You can see the whole set of my "best" photos at the bottom of one of my latest blog...
  3. Horse Training
    My TB mare will be turning 24 in March and I am unsure as to what I should be doing with regards of letting her down/keeping her fit. I have owned this horse for 7 years and she is amazingly active and healthy for her age and shows little signs of wanting to slow down, but I don't want to be...
  4. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hi, I was hoping to get some opinions on this ottb mare I am interested in. She is 7 yrs old and 17.1 hands. I would be doing h/j and possibly some lower level dressage with her. Thanks in advance! ://...
  5. Horse Boarding
    Hi moving to NC just outside of Charlotte. Any suggestions on Hunter jumper barns and boarding facilities? Thank You.
  6. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I was wondering if a girth like this Wintec CAIR girth in brown would be acceptable in the hunter ring? Here is the link Wintec CAIR Girth - Closeout! | Horse and Pet Suppliers Thank you!
  7. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello everyone :-) If you wouldn't mind, could you critique this photo of myself and my previous mount? It was taken during a Hack division at a past show although I cannot remember which class. Critique equitation, horse and turnout! Thank you! (Click photo to enlarge)
  8. Horse Talk
    Okay here's the issue, I've always wanted to show hunter jumper but I do not have any trainers nearby. So far I've been able to teach my greenie the basics of collection and self carriage. We went to our first two shows this past summer, we didn't do too bad. But I'm looking to enrich our...
  9. Horse Conformation Critique
    I was just curious as to what others thought about my horses conformation. He is a 7 year old Warmlood gelding, he is a hunter/jumper, soon we will be moving on to the jumpers. Tell me what you think! (by the way I know hey aren't the easiest images to judge off of, sorry I don't really have to...
  10. Jumping
    Can someone give me advice on a good style and weight for a fake tail for hunter jumpers. My horse has a decent tail it just needs to be a bit fuller. Reading online it seems to be 1 lb recommended but I've talked to a few people and they say that's too heavy for jumping that it wont lift...
  11. Horse Videos
    So those of you who don't know (you probably don't because i'm too shy to make friends with any of you) Aero (the old man) is one of our boarder horses that we use in lessons. He is great for beginners as he has such a chill and gentle manner and up until recently, was very slow. Which is...
  12. Horse Conformation Critique
    He is a ten your old Holsteiner gelding used previously as a Dressage horse and them a lesson horse. I am think of buying him and turning him into a hunter jumper or low level eventer. He may have some hock problems though. What do you think? Thanks.
  13. Horse Trainers
    I'm moving back from Rome to the States and we're going to be living in Fairfax, Virginia where I'm looking to continue my hunter jumper training. I haven't ridden in 7 months but I was doing a small amount of jumping before I moved to Italy, hopefully I'll be able to get back into the swing of...
  14. Jumping
    Please help me on the "rules of the ring" I've been doing hunters all my life, and my horse is a Jumper and I want to make my way into the ring. What to wear, buzzer help, etc. Looking for tips and all the rules in jumping :-)
  15. Horse Training
    I have an OTTB mare who needs something extra other than only leg cues, so I had wanted to carry a dressage whip for the times she needs a little extra umph or when she needs a subtle reminder to listen to my leg. However, regardless to whether I have a crop or a whip she freaks out once I get...
  16. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    I have been riding for 10 years, and at my age(15), I stand only 5'2. This is a pony that a friend and I trained. The other month at a show, I heard some nasty comments from parents and trainers about me riding the pony(Panda is 12.2). I was, in fact, riding him as a warm up for a 6 year old...

  19. Horse Conformation Critique
    This is my new mare Dakota. She is 10 and 16 hands tall. I am planning on riding her all around but mainly in hunter jumper and hunt seat. She is a bit fat and furry right now, trying to get her to get back on track since she was very overweight when we got her..about 1 month ago. Sorry for...
