    I ride a saddleseat show horse gelding who is 18y/o. Lately I have been wanted to jump him a little just to get him moving a different way and because he likes new things. The problem is he always hits his feet, front sometimes but usually hind. It makes him trip sometimes. Our "jumps" are only...

    Hi! I've been show jumping for the past 3 years now, in classes up to 1m (3'3''). I haven't had any trouble with fear or regarding height, i could even jump single fences at trainings up to 1.20m (3'11'') until recently. It started a few months ago when i had a really bad competition. The horse...

    Hello from Australia, I need a little help and some advice. :) Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong in my position and why I keep collapsing forward in the landing, I think it has something to do with me going back into the saddle too early but have no idea how to fix it. Keep in mind guys...

However she is slighty down hill, her trot and canter are fine and she has been shown up to 2'9 in hunters and level 2 dressage but her jumping career was awhile back.

    I have never had this problem before, generally horses sort of know how to srtide themselves. My new boy is not getting his strides right EVERY TIME! He has a nice jump but is knocking them as he is putting an extra small stride in and making himself jump too deep. This isnt just in doubles it...

    So I got a text today that the farrier had come to the barn and had put casts on my horses feet and shoes. I would really like to know how he went from 6 weeks ago being barefoot and the only thing the farrier found wrong (I had just bought him) was his walls were slightly thin but he said it...

    Hi everyone, I have a 14 hand mare who I find it very difficult to set up accurate distances for when jumping grids. I was told to set them 3 human strides apart, but they always seem to be wrong! Is this horse distance and should it be adapted for ponies? What distances do you use? Thankyou.

    This is a picture of me and my horse going over a 2'6" coop during a lesson. I know I should let up on the reins a bit, we've been working on the release. But other than that, is there anything I should work on? Thanks!

    Hi all, 1 year ago, I finally bought my very first pony. She was dead lame, 23 years old, hadn't been broke until she was 17 (by me) and I loved her more than anything. Retirement was fine by me for my first pony. She disagreed. 1 month after I bought her, while playing in the outdoor ring...
