  2. Horse Tack and Equipment
    I have been trained in dressage for the entirety of my riding life. However, I train with school horses not my own personal horse. He is not trained in dressage and I don't really want him to be, so I mainly just hack around, and have fun with him. Often times I dabble in western with him...
  3. Horse Health
    My horse is bucking everytime I put my leg on, not small humpy bucks, big bucks every transition. Especially at the canter, and especially on the right lead. I don't have a problem staying on because he seems to let one out every 3rd stride, I try to keep him going forward but it is nearly...

My horse has MASSIVE shoulders, so we have to push the saddle back a bit inorder to prevent pinched nerves & shoulder pressure. the original problem...
  8. Horse Tack and Equipment
    My (cheap western) saddle fits my horse (a little arab mare) pretty well, but there are two points where it puts too much pressure: right under the base of the tree. By points, I mean just that, they're not horizontal or vertical lines of pressure, just two small points. The rest of the saddle...
  9. Horse Training
    I'm training a horse for a friend, but he's a bit green. My friend plans to use him in the summer for lessons and this camp she's running, but this horse, Geo, is very spooky and has a few...*problems*. You see, he has a 'good way' and a 'bad way'. When we enter the arena, we go to the right...
