  1. Horse Talk
    So I think I may have finally figured out a way to move forward into the horse community more. It's definitely hard to get a foot into it when you don't grow up riding horses. Anyway, so basically, I had someone suggest a site called Yard and Groom. There are a few apprenticeship type...
  2. Horse Talk
    Just thought it could be interesting to talk about the moments in your life with horses that were significant in how it shaped the way you handled/worked around them in the future. I've had a few inspirational as well as big learning moments in my life with horses and trainers alike. When I...

    It's been a while since I last posted here. Especially since I was not in the correct mental state anyway. I have to say though, I've made huge progress. Goes to show that anyone can improve! I went from not being able to do a posting trot after twelve or so lessons to wining show ribbons in...

I am 14 and I am just wondering if I am making good progress for my age, and for how long I have been riding? I ride...
  11. Horse Training
    "I have also started Phillip on his under-saddle tune-up. He did fantastic for his first ride in two months! We worked on the flat, mainly on picking leads. He needs work with his right. We also practiced cantering from a walk. That went amazingly smooth! Other than his leads, we he is...
