  3. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hey all! I'm teaching some informal riding lessons to a few kids who love horses. Two of them are a little older and have been improving a lot.

  4. Horse Trainers
    I recently went to work as a ranch hand at a horse camp and I really enjoyed it. One of the main things we did was give the campers riding lessons. I am under 18, so I wasn't able to actually instruct the kids since I'm not CHA certified. I know that I know enough to teach kids the basics...

    Maybe next year sometime, my family might get my baby sister a mini. She'll be four then, and she absolutely LOVES horses!! Do you recommend a mini for kids?

    I recently posted about getting a pony for my stepson. He is doing really great with a lot of things. Very bold and relaxing well, his seat is very natural and balanced, and he has no problem knowing how to accomplish the things I ask for such as giving with his off hand when he asks her to...
