  1. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I've got another bit of a question for you guys. This time it involves working with a trainer/riding instructor. I have a riding instructor that I've been working with August and I literally have barely improved. So I'd just like a bit of an outside opinion on this since I've been thinking...
  2. Horse Training
    I am doing some research on online horse training videos/subscriptions/courses/etc and I would love to know your opinion. Average survey time is only 4 minutes. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DCVGBGK
  3. English Riding
    I've just started riding on a new horse, he is very sensitive on the bit, however he doesn't always respond to my leg very well. He often pushes against the pressure I apply, and simply refuses to listen. If anyone has any advice or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated! :D
  4. Horse Trainers
    I recently went to work as a ranch hand at a horse camp and I really enjoyed it. One of the main things we did was give the campers riding lessons. I am under 18, so I wasn't able to actually instruct the kids since I'm not CHA certified. I know that I know enough to teach kids the basics...
  5. Horse Boarding
    Does anyone know good places in Oahu to board horses and take riding lessons? I am an Peds oncology nurse and looking to move to Hawaii next year. I love riding and currently take riding lessons and would like to continue my lessons if I move to Hawaii

    So for a while I have been kind of working with a trainer kind of not. It was really, more than anything else, her just letting me exercise her horses/do barn chores for riding time and maybe a little critique every once and a while. She really was a great lady but I obviously wasn't learning...
  7. Horse Talk
    Hello all - It’s been a bit of a pain reading Horse Illustrated when most of the content is clearly written for people who have their own horse or ride most days of the week when someone like me can only ride once a week and then do some volunteer work at barns on the weekend (which mostly...
  8. Horse Talk
    Hey all, I am in my late teens and my two passions are horses and kids. I've really wanted to start teaching kids riding lessons and I was wondering what your opinion on this is? I don't do top level showing or anything but I know my way around a horse and will be starting a part time job as a...

    I have a woman that is wanting me to teach her to ride, but I am concerned that with her herniated disk, that it may not be a good idea. She is 33 years old, and suffers from numerous ailments, and I'm concerned that riding may not be the best idea for her, especially since she has what I...

  11. Horse Talk
    Hello :) Okay, so I have suddenly thought that I wanted to teach students in their riding lessons. Why this came up, I have no idea. The whole idea actually popped up yesterday. Yesterday I had a party with some of my buds, who are all into horses. Two of which take lessons, but one goes...
  12. Horse Training
    Hey guys! I am just starting out giving riding lessons and my very first client is taking one on the 20th. I was wondering if y'all could give me some ideas for a lesson plan. My rider is 15 years old, and she has been doing very well in the Western show scene, but is transitioning into English...
  13. Horse Training
    Hi Everyone, I teach riding lessons to beginner and intermediate riders. I am looking for some fun riding games or exercises that we can do over the winter in my smaller indoor riding area (60x60). I won't have more than 2 students at a time because of the size. We have done things like Simon...

    Well I am really confused. This is finally my chance to buy my first horse. A cute black and white miniature show horse..But if I purchased him, I would have to quit taking riding lessons (forever) at my riding stable. What should I do?
