  1. Horse Training
    I'm normally a lurker of the horseforum, but i couldn't find any questions about this, so I decided to ask my own. I'm not sure how much most of you know about Standardbreds, but when they come off the track, you basically have to saddle break them and train them to canter under saddle. my horse...
  2. Horse Training
    My horse has a very smooth canter, and he keeps an even pace for the most part when we're working. The only problem is, he usually picks up his own leads, usually the wrong one, and I'm not sure how to get him to pick up the correct lead. Also, I would like to teach him lead changes as well...

Before, she didn't really have the hind end to get a change and would only do it with exaggerated...
  7. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
