    Hello! After years of convincing, I've finally got my parents to get me on the saddle. As a long term goal with my riding, I have my eyes set on jumping at the grand prix level. I ride three times a week on school horses, and my parents are looking into leasing or buying a horse in the next...

    Okay so I noticed a horse online that cantered the same as a horse I used to ride, which I hated the style of canter. So I asked the trainer what the difference was between this horse and her other horses and she said "(Horse's name) is a low mover with a big jump. He is very unorthodox in the...

    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...

    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...
  5. Horse Conformation Queries and 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!

    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...

  8. Ridden Showing, Hunter/Jumper, 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...

    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...
  11. 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...
  12. Ridden Showing, Hunter/Jumper, 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...

    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...

    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!

    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...
