  10. English Riding Queries & Discussions
    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...

  13. Horse Conformation Queries and 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...
  14. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    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?

  17. Show Jumping and using jumping in training
    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!
