  1. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hoping this is the right section to post this.. Hi all! I am in the market for buying a OTTB as my next mid-upper level jumper and to start me in eventing. I found a horse in which I am having a complete PPE done on this week. She is a 7 yr old mare, raced 30 times and retired. Had downtime...

  3. Jumping
    Hey there! Just a competitive hunter who found their way into the jumpers ring. And boy am I confused. If any of you are competitive could you answer a few of my questions? Thanks. 1. What are the different ways you get eliminated? 2. You have 45 seconds to start right? 3. if you hear two...
  4. Horse Conformation Critique
    I'm not sure her breed but she is about 14.2 hands and I am very bad at critiquing confirmation. I'm planning to do the jumpers with her and probably no jumping higher than 3'3. Thanks!
  5. Horse Shows
    Hi all, Does anyone have some advice as to what name I would show my lease QH/Paint Alaska under next season at schooling shows? I have considered "The Last Frontier" and "Alaskan Gold", if those are any good? She is a 14-year-old 14.3 mare, with a sort of big body, and our color is going to be...

    Hello HorseForum! Cowboy and I are asking for your honest critiques! :) I am riding in a rope gag, with two reins. Critique away, many of you know our history ;)
  7. 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...
  8. Horse Shows
    I'm really confused on which of these fees I am required to pay and how much each class is? Can you help me understand what i need to pay? I will be traveling with my trainer and sharing a spot in her trailer. Here are the fees and the entry form...
  9. Horse Riding Critique
    We're ba-ack! :lol: This is Cowboy and I back at it, Child/Adult 3'-3'3" division. Two rounds shown here, one from Day 1 and another from Day 2. Both rounds shown are my speed round, so I was trying to get around as quick as possible while being safe and leaving the rails up. We got Champion...
  10. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello All!! :) I am back again, asking for critique! If anybody here saw my last critique, this is at the same venue as the last. We did the same division, and I'd love if you guys could give some critique for me and the horse! I have both YouTube and pictures. If you watch the video, I'm...
  11. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    So I was planning to do jumpers with the horse I just bought. But I would also like to do hunters first and I'm guessing I'm going to have to buy a new bridle since mine is a figure 8. They will disqualify me with that type of bridle, correct? Also I had question about my bit. I heard that any...
  12. English Riding
    I really want to show my horse in his first Jumper class... But I have never done it myself (I have always done hunters). Could anyone tell me what to wear and when you start (like is there a bell or something..)?? Please? I need help!
  13. Jumping
    Please help me on the "rules of the ring" I've been doing hunters all my life, and my horse is a Jumper and I want to make my way into the ring. What to wear, buzzer help, etc. Looking for tips and all the rules in jumping :-)
  14. Jumping
    Okay, so here's my little story. I have been doing hunters(showing) ALL my life. I was 5 when I started showing w/t/c and and 18" courses. But here's the thing. I don't want to do Hunters anymore. I want to do Jumpers. I have done Jumpers once, on my friends horse. I just bought my horse who...
  15. Jumping
    Hi, I'm looking for some exercises to do with my horse, (and rider exercises) :-) to help with jumping. Whether these be groundwork exercises, flat work, or jumping exercises. Also, what exercises do you do to help keep yourself in shape? And now that I am writing this...any simple...
  16. Horse Show Clothing
    For a jumpers show is a coat required like in hunt classes? Are polos acceptable? I've only showed hunt and I have my first jumpers show coming up!
  17. Horse Shows
    So I know the standard jumper levels start with level 0(2'9"-3') and go to level 9(4'9"-5') and than Grand Prix. But is there jumper classes lower than 2'9"? Like 2'6" or 2'3"? I've seen people talking about smaller jumper classes, but I always thought the smallest height was 2'9". Thanks!
  18. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello :) This is my 14.1hh Arabian, Diamond, and my 16.3hh TB, Cowboy! I do Eventing with Diamond, and Hunters with Cowboy. I am asking you to judge them both. The video shows Diamond jumping a small crossrail (18"), then a 2'9" vertical first. I am asking you to critique both of us, but...
  19. English Riding
    I am riding competetivley on the jumper circuit and really want to find a college that has an equestrian team for jumpers! All of the ones I have found only have hunter or western teams, but I really want to find a competitive team that shows in the jumpers. I don't want to have to switch...

    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...
