  1. Horse Shows and Horse Show Tack and Clothing
    Hey all! I have been searching for a replacement helmet for my Charles Owen Ayr8 helmet. I'd be using it occasionally for schooling, but mostly for any shows. I'd love a new Charles Owen, but they are a bit pricey. I am absolutely in love with the One K Defender helmet with rose gold accents. If...
  2. Horse Shows
    I'm an amateur photographer looking to practice taking action shots of hunter/jumper shows and events and I'm planning to go to local shows this summer and practice, but I don't know the policy of photographing other people and their horses. I wouldn't be publicizing the images or selling them...
  3. Horse Training
    I am going to work on teaching my new horses flying lead change after I get her back into shape. (I just got her a couple days ago). She's a 16 hand nine year old appendix (75% tb). She was originally trained in western pleasure but was recently training in hunters (which is what I will do...
  4. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    Hi there! I'm interested in a gelding at my stables that is an incredible jumper (can jump at least up to 4 feet). The problem is, he's a total hunter horse. He has that incredible hunter form but he's super slow (like a hunter). I was wondering how easy is it to switch a horse from hunters to...
  5. Horse Health
    I have just recently adopted a 13 year old standardbred gelding. He was a pacer and he has pin fired legs. He was raced until he was 7 then put into a trail riding retirement home. I'm not sure what happened after that but I was told he was trained to be a trail horse then sold to a family to...
  6. Horse Shows
    Where are all the PA OTTBs at? :-P The Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horse Show Association has a lot to offer this year and definitely deserves more attention! The shows last year had no competition so let's change that! If you and your OTTB live in PA or close by I highly recommend looking at the...
  7. Horse Stories and Poems
    This is just a story I started writing :) I'm really loving writing it, and thought I'd go ahead and grab some feedback!! This main post is just the first chapter, I have written the second as well. The first chapter is much shorter than the second, so thought I'd make sure it started well...

  9. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    I am 5'9" (about) and a majority of my height lies in my legs. I have been told by some friends and horseback riding instructors that I may be 'growing out of' hunters. Two of my friends, who have both shown a the WIHS and in university equitation leagues, are around 5'6". Is it possible...
  10. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hello :) Okay, I am on the hunt for some nice barrels :D Why? Well, we took Mr. Cowboy to a new trainer recently (sticking with her ;) and she asked us to jump the barrels. That was a fight. I've had 3 lessons with her, and Cowboy HATES the barrels. She has many sets, all different. He's...

    Well, here is Cowboy and I out in the field, practicing for our HUS class this weekend :) Pick us apart, down to the core! I want people to yell at me to make me better, and yell at me to make my horse better. :D I'd like to know Cowboy's strengths, as well as weaknesses, along with mine...
  13. English Riding
    i know this is a common kind of question and then people usually get some of the same answers. but what are some good show tips for hunters, jumpers, and eq? I will be showing in all three this weekend and have shown in them multiple times before. this is my first true show with Minor though. My...
  14. English Riding
    Penny, the mare that I love and ride hunters with, does not like to pick up her right lead. I can get her to pick it up, but after jumps she would switch it to the left lead. And, I don't like the idea of having to switch to the trot and have her pick it up the right lead again in a show. Would...
  15. Horse Riding Critique
    I have only been riding 3 months at my new barn in Kansas after a 2 year break. It is like starting all over again from the beginning, except you somewhat know what your doing. I am 14 and I am just wondering if I am making good progress for my age, and for how long I have been riding? I ride...
  16. Horse Riding Critique
    Yes, there are many flaws in my riding, I am just trying to improve. So any input would be wonderful!! My horse, as you can see, jumps very hard so it is very very difficult for me to stay with in over jumps. My trainer can barely do it. Any tips on how to improve that? Thanks! denali | Flickr...
  17. Horse Breeds
    Hey, just wanted to see how many ASB owners are on, I have a rescue ASB. I used to ride Arabs (hunter/jumpers) and had no interest in ASBs until I rode a wonderful National Show Horse, and when my little rescue came along and I ended up with him, I couldn't be happier. So what do you do with...
  18. English Riding
    A friend of mine at the barn is going through a tough time with her confidence. She feels like her equitation has totally gone out-of-whack and she has no idea what to do. Our trainer kind of gave up on everyone and honestly has no idea what to tell her. I've tried to help her out and give her a...
  19. Jumping
    I'm getting back into jumping and instead of before, I'm planning on doing it competitively. I've been told to start in the hunters and then move to jumpers. Why is that? Is it so that you learn form, distance, speed, lines etc.? I would start in the hunters but my horse isn't really a hunter...
