    So I’ve been feeling pretty run down the last few days, post nasal drip, headaches, low appetite, muffled ears/ ear pain, and a dry cough. Took a rapid test but it says no Covid. So I decided to cancel my riding lesson today with my trainer, due to not wanting to get her or her baby sick(he is...
  2. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hi again, Today my horse realized her pulling her head down doesn't scare me anymore, so she started continuously bucking whenever I would ask her to do something. That stopped about ten minutes into the lesson once she realized that wasn't going to work either (I was terrified on the inside...

    Hi! I’m originally from Alabama and have been riding horses for as long as I can remember. When I enter college on an academic scholarship I took a three-year hiatus from riding a horse ownership. But after I graduated from college, started undergraWhen I enter college on an academic...

    Hello there to whoever is reading this! I have been poking around some barns trying to find a new one because my old one just wasn't a fit for me, and I came across this barn that seems pretty great. They offer what I want and seem a good fit for me. I was looking at their lesson and it said...
  5. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    Hello everyone! I’m new to this forum and I have some questions. I’m a beginner rider and have just started cantering but have a decent posting trot(I ride English). Should I lease or just take lessons? I’ve only been taking lessons but they are quite expensive over time. Am I “ready” for a...
  6. English Riding Queries & Discussions
    I haven't been able to ride all winter due to bad weather and complications with my horses health. Recently I had a lesson (on a different horse) to touch up on any forgotten skills. A big problem I noticed was that in the trot my leg moved around a lot. My instructor said this was because I...

    I've been riding at the same facilities for over 6 years now, attending every week and progressing as much as I can. It's not an official riding school, rather it is owned by an older lady who focuses on relationships between the horse and rider. I am largely self taught due to this. Anyway, I...
  8. Reining
    I have been given the opportunity to ride a reining horse. I'm used to riding English, so it's a little different for me and would like to up my skills. Does anyone know of some good coaches that would help teach me how to ride a reining horse?

    I'm moving back from Rome to the States and we're going to be living in Fairfax, Virginia where I'm looking to continue my hunter jumper training. I haven't ridden in 7 months but I was doing a small amount of jumping before I moved to Italy, hopefully I'll be able to get back into the swing of...

    I crawled myself back to my original barn I started riding 15 years ago, and I'm fairly certain that I will stay here. I like my trainer , not my absolute favorite out of all, but overall, I like this barn and her the best. My legs are coming back, or I should say rebuilding the strength. I'm...
  11. General Riding queries
    Before I go on to my next lesson later this week I think I need some advice. I have a hard time with lesson horses. They always take advantage of me! And I know it's all my fault! I have this mentality that "this animal does not belong to me so I should be nice to it." In the past I've had no...

    I was super nervous about it because I don't know what horse people are like anywhere except my home barn where even the community outside of the barn was so tight knit everyone had a horse for somebody. I've had 3 different trainers over the years, this one will be my fourth. I had no idea what...
  13. General Riding queries
    I will be showing over the summer (equitation) and my parents have granted me extra riding time to prepare. I have the option of a half-lease (3 days a week) at a barn near my house, or an extra private lesson every week at the barn that I normally take lessons at and will be showing under. I am...

    I have been looking for a lesson pony to buy before spring comes around. What do you guys think about this one? Any issues you can see?

    Wow I have not been on here for a very long time! Well hi everyone! I have been riding a new pony at the barn named Miner. I'm going to be showing him this weekend also. I have only ridden him a few times but I am going to have one more lesson before Sunday. He is a true jumper pony and really...
