hunter under saddle

  1. English Riding
    Hi! I have been leasing a Saddlebred since June that was going great, but he will almost never canter no matter the efforts. He has begun to be a little full of himself and went after a kid teeth-bared and ears pinned when she had gone to get his pasture mate. Since I want to canter every time I...
  2. Horse Training
    Hello all! :D I've recently bought a 3yo Paint who I will be training for mainly barrels and poles, and the occasional hunter under saddle. He's ridden in a Dring snaffle or a Little S Hackamore at the moment (Snaffle type is pictured below). Once he gets of age, and has the proper training...
  3. Stallions and Broodmares
    What are in your opinion some of the best AQHA hunt seat studs? I love the look of a big hunt seat horse, but a lot of the big names in hunt seat come with a not so great mind. I am looking to find a really great minded hunt seat stud and I just wanted to see what some experiences with certain...
  4. Equine Careers and Education
    I am a sophomore in high school but of course I am already looking into my future. I currently show AQHA in mainly hunter under saddle and equitation with my current horse but with my old horse I did western pleasure and horsemanship as well. I also plan on doing horsemanship and showmanship...
  5. Horse Training
    I bought a hunt seat horse horse at the Congress last year. He has amazing legs and is a good horse at heart but he is terribly spooky. I don't know if it might also have to do with his bloodline but both of his parents are appendix's if that helps any. He is also not particularly young...
  6. Horse Riding Critique
    He's a five year old 15.3 hand paint gelding, only been under saddle for about a year and a half. I would like you guys to critique his movement, and please be thorough with critiquing it, I would really like to know everything that's wrong and the good points too. Also- I ride him hunter/...
  7. Horse Shows
    What are judges looking to see in a under saddle flat class? What defines a 'good mover'? I believe my horse is a decent mover, but as we've moved to higher divisions, we haven't been able to place in any flat classes lately. Is there anything I can do to improve/extend his movement and...

  12. Horses for Sale
    Lucy is a 2 year old AQHA filly by Hot Diggity Joe out of an Indian Artifacts mare. She is by far one of the fanciest legged mares I have ever seen! Never acts moody and is so sweet. The favorite around the barn! She is smart and a very fast learner. After only 30 days of riding she is...
  13. English Riding
    I want to get my horse good enought to compete in AQHA hunters under saddle. What are some things that I need to accomplish with him/he needs to be able to do to compete successfully? He's 7 years old, pleasure-bred, Quarter horse, of course.
  14. Horse Breeding
    I have a gelding out of Protect Your Assets. I was just wondering if anyone here had anything to do with/knows about any horses out of him that have went on to become hunter under saddle winners, or knows if he's a good stallion or not...you know, stuff like that. Thanks! :-)
  15. English Riding
    I have a 7 year old 15.3 hand Quarter horse that I purchased a few months ago. At his previous home he was being trained for hunter under saddle, and I got to watch someone else riding him and he looked really good. Ever since I got him he just has not been the same- although since I first got...

    What is the difference between jumping and hunter under saddle? I've watched HUS a few times and can't see where it's any different then show jumping?
  17. Horse Riding Critique
    This is JD. He's 6 years old, 16,3hh, and that's all I'm going to tell you :) I'd like some unbiased critiques of his movement and his conformation, please. (As far as you can tell from the pictures) I have my own opinions about him but it always helps to get a fresh look.
