  1. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hey guys :) So my boy Jack is close to being 3 years old. So I was wondering what you guys think of his conformation. I did post him to an actual FB conformation group but have been getting 0 responses so I figured I'd try here. I can see a few things myself, but I'd love to hear more...
  2. Horse Talk
    So I got to talking about this to a family member earlier and thought I'd ask you guys to see what you all think. If you lunge your horse (either on lunge line or free lunging) and they buck and kick a few times as they run around, do you see this as them challenging you or them feeling good...
  3. Teen Talk
    What do you think schools should change? I think that school days are too long and waste a lot of our time by teaching us random facts we won't ever use. Schools only teach us the same things in science and history but every year with more detail. I would rather just learn about it once and get...

  7. Horse Talk
    This video features George Morris talking about the industry standards and how we seem to be lowering them. I know this was "presented" in 2011, but I still think his points can be applied to today... What do you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NLd2xIRoUcU On a side note, the guy who...

    I was wondering what people's thoughts are on draw reins, my trainer uses them to help teach a head set. But I have never heard of other people's opinions.
  9. Western Riding
    Please share your opinions on starfishing below! :) In my opinion: I realize it's an accident when a rider gets popped out of the saddle occasionally when kicking. But if you're kicking that hard, you're probably doing more harm to your horse than beating the clock. I think there is...

  20. Horse Talk
    My dad is letting me a horse, but he really wants me to get a mare. My dad already has a gelding and he is pretty sweet, but my dad wants me to get a mare because in his opinion, they're gentler. I have no problem with getting a mare, but all the websites I checked there are hardly any mares...
