Hello:) I was looking at a show in my area to show my paint horse. I’ve had her for a little over a year now and in her previous life she only showed gaming. So because of that history she just wants to go fast under saddle and won’t walk. But I’ve been working with her for about 6 months trying...
Hi guys! Like a lot of young equestrians, I love to go fast on my horse.. but I'm not the best horseman in the world, and still need help finding the right way to ride through the trot and lope.
The problem I'm having during the trot is keeping the horse at a trot, and posting.
I'm starting Western riding lessons tomorrow and was given a pair of paddock boots. I want to be able to use them, but don't want to be doing the wrong thing. Is this something I shouldn't do or does it really not matter?
Hi fellow horse lovers! I really need advice. I have taken the winer off from riding and am going to be starting it again in the spring. When I start riding again I will be riding at a different barn- this new barn offers lessons in both Western and English, whereas the one I went to previously...

Hi guys, I'm new to this website. :) So, I started riding around January, but I've wanted to ride for my entire life. At my boarding school, I get to ride maybe 3 or 4 times a month. I just started learning the sitting trot in March (seems a long time ago, but a lot of the lessons we couldn't...
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...
Hi! As disclosed in my username I'm new to breed showing and could not be more lost when it comes to the different terminology used on show bills and to register for classes (non-pro, novice, amateur, youth, etc.) I'm 15, and this will be my first year showing MApHA and GLApHC. I have no ApHC...

So I'v been riding on and off throughout my life, much of which was hacking and took riding up again at University earlier this year. I had never jumped until now (apart from one awful attempt which we wont count). I'v had four jumping lessons at uni and was wondering if anyone could help...

Let me set the scene as it were:

Last September, my girlfriend Kaitie expressed an interest in picking up riding again. She had taken riding lessons for something like 10 years when she was younger, but eventually had to give up taking them after her instructor moved too far away. I was excited to see her ride...
