  1. English Riding
    Hi All. So I'm a male in my mid 20's who has been taking one hour private lessons at a hunter / jumper barn for a couple months now and have really enjoyed the experience. That said I have been experiencing some discomfort / chafing in my calves. I currently ride in cotton pants with tall riding...
  2. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello! Long time reader, first time forum post! I recently got a few videos of my riding and I need some constructive advice. Horse is 16 year old, 16.2h Oldenburg/appy. He gets body work done but I know he has more trouble bending left than right. Tracking right I have to think of counter...
  3. English Riding
    Help! My trainer will not let me jump and I have been riding for years. The first year I was learning how to tack up, groom and walk around. The 2nd year I was walking all by myself and even learned to also trot by myself. The 3rd year I worked on improving my trot and canter and then centered...
  4. English Riding
    So I recently started looking at this mustang named Mo. He is 7 years old and 15hh. He seems like the perfect horse for me. He looks to have really good movement and a decent jump. He also looks really brave! He's only been saddle trained for about 2 years and has recently started jumping. I...
  5. Horse Training
    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...

  7. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hey! I was playing around with Photoshop checking the conformation of my horses. I think they show a fair bit of potential, the bay (Bon Balou x Cheops Z) is 2 and the chestnut is 6 (by WH Leader: AKA Landadel blood). I'm pretty sure the bay's shoulder angle is weird because of how bum high she...
  8. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi, I need to get a new running martingale for my horse, but I was wondering if it makes more sense to get a breastplate. My saddle doesn't slip, but is a breastplate safer (just in case) than a regular running martingale? Opinions?

  10. Horse Conformation Critique
    This is Alabama my 14'2hh yearling (turning 2 July 10). She's 3/4 quarter horse and 1/4 Belgian. I was hoping on using her as a jumper in the futur, even though she is still growing can you tell me some faults/good conformation points she has? Thank you.
  11. Jumping
    So I brought my Lusitano Stallion with me to have a horse to ride while in College. In his papers, his grandsire Novilheiro was a grand prix jumper with John Whitaker! So I had the brilliant idea to teach him how to jump and try my luck. Lusitanos and most iberian breeds don't make good jumpers...
  12. Jumping
    My first jumper show is coming up in a few weeks, it's just a schooling show, and I was wondering what all I needed. Is there a certain type of pad I need to use? What colors are acceptable? Do I wear a show coat or polo? Can my horse wear boots? Is a hunter bridle okay to use? Is there a...

  17. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    Hey fellow riders, I really cannot see why everyone is so enthralled with George Morris. I know he was very successful in his younger years, and I respect that, but I have watched countless videos of him coaching as well as riding and I'm really not convinced that he is skilled or knows very...
