  1. Horse Boarding
    I am looking to lease a horse at the barn where I currently ride.I have ridden the horse several times and she feels like a good match and I would be able to take jumping lessons on her. (My barn only allows you to jump if you lease or own the horse). The problem is that she does not have her...
  2. General Off Topic Discussion
    So this isn't really off-topic from horses, but given the thread options this seemed to be the best place to talk about what I needed to. So here I am! Firstly, I am new to the forums. I am hoping that I can get some insight and some help as I (hopefully) attempt to enter the world of equines...
  3. New to Horses
    Ok, so I'm very new to horses. I've been hearing quite a bit about leasing a horse sometime in the future. Could someone give me the basics? I'm not sure that I want to do this anytime soon, but I do want more information. Thank you in advance! :gallop:
  4. New to Horses
    New to Horse Forum, but not new to horses. I grew up riding and rode in college, then got away from it for a while. Five years ago I bought a walkaloosa mare, nice kind of midlife crisis right? lol She was underweight and had some issues from being treated roughly (I suspect, I don't know her...
  5. New to Horses
    Of course, by "kid", I mean thirty-mumble and by "new" I mean slightly obsessed with horses since I could walk, but come from a not particularly well-off family, so the best I could manage growing up was yearly scout camp. But whatever. :D I've finally found an instructor in my area that I get...
  6. New to Horses
    Hello. I just joined this forum, so, I hope this is the right place to post a set of questions like this! If it's not please let me know and I will move it or repost. I'm eighteen years old (I feel so old, I'm still a kid, I swear), and I've loved horses since I was a little kid. I taught...
  7. English Riding
    Hi everyone! I need serious help and advice. I just don't have anyone else to talk to and I'm at a point where I honestly feel trapped... So here's the deal; I take lessons once a week at this small barn with a private instructor that claims to have been an Olympian. The only backup of her...
  8. New to Horses
    Hi there! My name is Mia, I own one horse who's name is, Spencer. I am 18 years old and I am currently studying to take my test to become a certified riding instructor. I live in California. I have been riding for 9 years now. For the first 4 years, I rode western, now I am strictly a...
  9. English Riding
    I know this is going to seem like a really broad question, but I've been skimming through the threads in the Horse Riding Critique forum and I've found myself wanting to provide input, but not knowing where to start. What are some of the first things you're looking for when you're watching a...
  10. Jumping
    I've ridden Western for several years in the past, to the point where I leased for a couple of years and then owned for a few more before I went off to college. Since then I've only done occasional lessons here and there, but things in my life have changed and I'm looking to start picking up...

  13. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hello y'all... I'm brand new to the forum but know just enough about 'forums' to know I should come and introduce myself first. :wave: I'm hoping to meet some folks to talk horses, homesteading, and moving back to country life with. In a nutshell... I grew up country but have lived city...
  14. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hello, all! Thought I'd pop in and give myself an introduction here. I'm probably a bit "unique" here in that I don't have a horse of my own. However, I have recently begun volunteering at a horse rescue. I have loved horses for my entire life, but I have never been in a position (financially...
  15. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hello! My name is Caressa! I am a newbie to the extreme. My family recently rescued a Shetland, a mini, and a Tennessee Walker. They are all great horses, but we are working hard to get them all the proper care and attention that they need!
  16. Western Riding
    I've been studying [lots of books + online videos] cutting horse training & cattle ranching for about a year now so I know a good deal of the terminology and am familiar with, what I understand to be, the proper practices of the discipline but, only in THEORY with very little real-life-hands-on...
  17. Western Riding
    Hi! Last december I bought this beautiful gypsy vanner mare, which is trained for western pleasure. I'd known this mare for 6 years, and had been wanting her for just as long. But I don't know anything about the western style or.. yeah, anything. I've been riding for 18 years, mostly just as a...
  18. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hello, I've been lurking around the horse forum a little bit and have joined up, I love reading everybody's different stories! I've ridden horses all my life, stopped a few years ago due to a horse riding accident and have finally got a new horse - a warmblood chestnut gelding who turned four a...
  19. Horse Training
    This might be long. I am completely new to horses. I've never owned/ridden a horse before these past few months, though I always use to read about them in my childhood. My aunt and uncle have a goat farm that I spend a majority of my time at, and on that farm they have a Mustang named Comet...
  20. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hi there! I'm just a newbie to horseforum and the world of horses altogether really. I had a fierce obsession in my early teens. My dad put me in lessons - I only took 3, I didn't like my teacher, the horse, or that I had to learn on Western when I wanted to learn on English. lol... Well here...
