  1. 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...
  2. Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hi! I will be starting in the second term in the Langley Equestrian Academy. Is anyone a part of it? Some information for me to get started would be very helpful :) Do I need a horse myself? Do I need particular gear? Also,please tell me about yourselves! I heard from Lara I will be the first...
  3. Rider Wellness
    Hi! I may need some advice, seeing that I am a student. I may be leasing my own horse for the first time ever and in the past I've been competing on lesson horses. And while I'm perfectly comfortable with leasing a horse as I have been handling horses for over ten years now (classical dressage)...
  4. General Off Topic Discussion
    Since school has begun its obviously harder to get to the yard everyday. Now I'm in sixth form my school has a lot more freedom, and I'm considering asking my school to allow me to take my 3 game periods on a Wednesday afternoon off to ride. Just to add my school doesn't take games seriously...
  5. Teen Talk
    I want it to be really long or medium whatever but i need a topic. A topic. Not a question or a debate. I am not good at those. So any help?
  6. Teen Talk
    Hey, I'm new here. Been coming onto this forum for years now, but finally had the guts to sign up.. Haha. Anyway, I'm having some issues, that I think only a horse crazy teen will understand. Otherwise I would ask my real life friends but they know nothing about horses (one thought a bridle...
  7. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I am looking for a college with Equine majors (Majoring in horse nutrition, horse science, and training). An equestrian Eventing team offering all levels, though venting is not mandatory. Dorms hopefully, near or at the stables. I am open to anywhere in Europe, Canada, and the east coast of the...
  8. Teen Talk
    I've found myself to be in a position where I don't really like anyone other than my horse, my mom, and my best friend. Like, I'm so independent and head strong, I just don't like people.. Like, relationship wise, there is absolutely no one good enough for me here.. probably because I'm in...
  9. New to Horses
    I posted a while ago about my parents not letting me own, lease or part lease a horse. However, my instructor has recently brought up the idea with my mother several times and I think I may have the slightest chance. I've worked out all costs and details and have put them into a Powerpoint...
  10. Dressage
    Hello everyone, I am seeking to find a qualified riding school where I can professionalize my riding skills on jumping, dressage etc.. I have been riding horse for more than 10 years now and am already holding a BA degree so I am not looking for a secondary school. I am thinking of having a...
  11. General Off Topic Discussion
    So... I have been looking at horse colleges, though I am only a 15 year old sophomore. I want to be a horse trainer, one that travels and does clinics/shows. I also want to compete as a barrel racer and own a few breeding horses, but I mostly want to train. This leads me to my question. I want...
  12. Teen Talk
    ...but I can't turn it back easily. I was talking about this to a friend of mine who lives in NYC. From what I've been told, when you go to college in the US, you can change your major in the first two years easily, so she didn't understand why I didn't just change my course if I was not happy...
  13. Equine Careers and Education
    Hello all, I'm looking into taking the Equine Sciences program from Olds College and would like a couple of questions answered. How was your experience, did you enjoy the program? Was it worth it? Did you feel that it was a waste of time and money? What are you doing now? Does it have...
  14. Teen Talk
    So my school offers Independent Studies for Phys Ed and I really want to do riding for sophomore year. Except for the fact that I have to do 10 hours a week and enter shows regularly. I lease a beautiful 15.3 paint quarter horse mix and I'm training for hunter jumpers with her. But I only lease...
  15. Parenting
    Okay, I know this is a repeat, but I am still at a loss for what to do. My current school is completely awful. I found one comment that I'm going to repost because it describes what is happening perfectly. "Wow, I really don’t where to start after reading the most recent posts. After reading...
  16. New to Horses
    Well, I really want to know what job I could get to support myself and a few horses in the future, without a high school diploma. I know this question kind of seems broad, but I'm as green as they can get.
  17. Parenting
    I will be 19 soon and my BF wants me to go down and see him where he is stationed because in August he comes back for a few weeks and leaves the country for 2 years and I will see him maybe every 6 months. im going to college in the fall and I live with my parents until then because im living in...
  18. Hoof Care
    Should the angles of the bones in the hoof capsule ideally be 10% less than the angle of the hoof wall? It's a true/false question in an equine standard I'm doing at school & I can't find out what they should ideally be. I kinda thought that the angle between the 2nd and 3rd phalanx (short...
  19. Equine Careers and Education
    Hey all! So here's where I'm at, just curious as to your opinion on being a farrier. How did you become successful? Would you have picked another line of work? Ups and downs of being a farrier? And lastly, how do you feel- if your female, about being a female farrier, is it harder to find work...
  20. Equine Careers and Education
    I am desperate to find some online college programs. I am not a fresh out of high school student, but instead been in college for a while, swapped my major way to many times and all because everything around me is not what I want to do. I want to work in the equine industry and I would rather...
