  4. Horse Breeding
    Hey! As I am starting to get ready for foaling season at my barn, I`ve been lurking around this forum reading all the old foaling threads (and also noticing there are no new ones for this spring? Fellow backyard breeders, where are you?!). So I figured that I need to make a thread for my two...

    I saw this show jacket on facebook and I'm absolutely in love with it.. But what discipline would you wear it for? It has almost the classic Hunter look, but it has 4 buttons? And it looks almost too "formal" for show jumping?? Unless that's just me. I don't have any experience with showing as...

    So, my horse whisper is scared of jumps, some times she will go over them, sometimes she refuses.. Any tips on how to get her used to them? How to train her to jump? Should I consider getting a trainer? Or perhaps riding lessons?
