leads

  1. Jumping
    I have started jumping recently but I am having trouble with leads. I don't know how to tell if I am on the right lead or the left lead. I can tell my horse definitely goes faster with one of the leads. But I have no idea which is which! Help!
  2. Horse Training
    Hello everyone, I'm looking for some help with the horse i'm working with right now he will not pick up his left lead. He just down right refuses no matter what. I have googled and watched videos and the the ones I've found tell you to just ask for the canter not the lead. I tried that and he...

    Hey y'all! This is my first post. I am excited to hear what you all say about this!:runninghorse2: Anyways, I've begun training my 14 yr old palomino gelding Doc for western pleasure and such.

    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...

    About 6 months ago I got a new horse, and recently I've been having issues getting her to pick up her right leg lead. I started riding her consistently in july and August, from May to June i was pretty off and on. In September, i started working her a few times a week, for about an hour a...

    I have a horse who has a very stubborn personality in general. And it's pretty bad when you ride her too. She is really hard to get into the canter and she can't get her leads right. I can't use a crop very well because she crohops everytime I use it. Any suggestions on what to do?

    My thoroughbred gelding constantly changes his back leads, back and fourth. Is there anything I can try and do to avoid it?

  9. Horse Training
    I started working with my lease gelding Navigator over the summer about two years ago. At the time, he refused to take up his right lead. He was still fairly green at the time and my trainer and I figured it was probably because he was still developing and still a little unbalanced to that...

    How can I make sure my horse picks up the correct lead each time, like if we were at a show?
  11. Horse Training
    So I have been working with my mare lately on flying lead changes. We tried to start learning them about a year ago but kind of put it on the back burner while we dealt with other training ideas. Before, she didn't really have the hind end to get a change and would only do it with exaggerated...
  12. Horse Training
    My horse was bought a little green at the canter. He can't get his lead all the time on the ground or uner saddle. But when he does get his lead he is "at the race track" and throws his head when you try to slow him down. He's a great horse with this as his only issue. My trainer tells me to...

  15. Horse Training
    Okay, so I am training my project horse out of just doing trails, into being pretty much an eventing horse, but I have 2 questions/problems. Since he was a trail horse, he was never told what was wrong and what was right with his gaits, neck, etc., so he ALWAYS takes his right lead, but it is...

  17. Horse Training
    I was at my trainer's for a week of training. We worked on numerous things including leads and flying lead changes. My horse, Autumn, picked up her left lead and did "the most beautiful flying lead changes I've seen in years!" (According to my trainer.) That was 2 weeks ago. Now I can't even get...
  18. Horse Training
    Ok so I have a paint mare she is 18 and I have been trying to 2 years now to get flying lead changes she will get them for about a month and them all of a sudden stop! I tried to only do one each direction only once a week. So I don't think she is tired of them. She also just turns and...
  19. Tack and Equipment Classifieds
    I'm looking for some grooming supplies of any type for a sixteen hand saddlebred, and I do not care that it was use as long as it isn't to badly damaged or unclean. I'm also looking for a halter and a lead rope, it can be a used halter or lead, but it must look clean in someway. Thank you :D
