  1. Horse Health
    I want to start this by saying that I really don't intend for this to be inflammatory, though I understand it clearly looks that way. I'm open to any and all opinions and don't have a strong opinion of my own (which is why I'm bringing this to the general public). I don't show, I don't really...
  2. New to Horses
    My aspirations are in my username, 8 year plus showjumper currently in 1.25 m up to 1.35 m but love cowboying up and deserts, not desserts, Deserts, like cactuses and tumbleweeds.
  3. Member Journals
    Hello! Well, I've seen a lot of people doing these journals and I thought they're actually a really neat idea! I'll be able to track my progress and look back to see how far I've come. And hey, if anyone's interested they can tag along as well! Feel free to offer your advice or opinions; there's...
  4. Horse Training
    Firstly, I'm not English so please forgive me for some mistakes eventually! I started riding lesson almost a year ago but because of some problems I haven't been very constant so I'm a little bit shy to ask my trainer. My bad. Since the first lesson I had this doubt and with Internet it has...
  5. Horse Talk
    So, I've devoted my life to my horse, he's my baby, and he is one of the most talented horses i've ever met. He's a thoroughbred/arabian/morgan and he is the perfect mix of quiet, energetic, and really athletic. We compete and train on large courses strided for large horses. He can jump the...
  6. Jumping
    Hi Everyone. First of all I apologise if this kind of post already exist. I have searched but did not find an answer. Here is my question: I was told that it is largely more difficult to jump 1mt than to jump 80cm. That is, the transition from 80cm to 1mt is much more difficult than let's...
  7. Jumping
    Hey there! Just a competitive hunter who found their way into the jumpers ring. And boy am I confused. If any of you are competitive could you answer a few of my questions? Thanks. 1. What are the different ways you get eliminated? 2. You have 45 seconds to start right? 3. if you hear two...
  8. Jumping
    Hello, i'm new to this website, but I've googled some questions on it and usually they're answered here so why not give it a shot? I have a 8 year old Quarter horse, who i'm currently training to jump competitively. He was doing good after a couple months of training, he started knocking rails...
  9. Eventing
    Hi everyone! I am being given a new jump saddle for my 18th birthday (yay!!!) and I'm hoping for some recommendations. Obviously, I'll have to make sure any saddle I (read: my dad) buy will fit both myself and my horse before I buy it. My local tack shop is usually lovely about letting me take...
  10. English Riding
    Hi, I have a 16h Warmblood mare who has a lot of trouble relaxing her neck. She is constantly behind the vertical and if you try to get her to stop, she just throws her head around. She's homebred, sweet natured, only ever had a snaffle or hackamore. We wanted to train her for showjumping, as...
  11. Jumping
    I did some jumping with my horse today and she was a star but i'd really like to continue the exercise I was doing and take it further tomorrow... Is it bad to do jumping 2 days in a row. She's 9 years old and has plenty of energy. opinions?
  12. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    Hi there! I'm interested in a gelding at my stables that is an incredible jumper (can jump at least up to 4 feet). The problem is, he's a total hunter horse. He has that incredible hunter form but he's super slow (like a hunter). I was wondering how easy is it to switch a horse from hunters to...
  13. Horse Shows
    I'm sixteen years old and I've been riding since i was five. Ive ridden all types of horses and I ride in an advanced adult lesson but i do not have my own horse.. I do have some experience in small local shows on borrowed ponies but nothing big. I want nothing more than to ride horses for the...
  14. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello All!! :) I am back again, asking for critique! If anybody here saw my last critique, this is at the same venue as the last. We did the same division, and I'd love if you guys could give some critique for me and the horse! I have both YouTube and pictures. If you watch the video, I'm...
  15. Jumping
    I am an experience (but young) rider, and I have been riding since I was 4. I really want to push myself to jump higher (I can jump up to 85cm). Any tips on showjumping that would be important for jumping higher fences? :think:
  16. Horse Training
    So i have trained horses and ive been riding for about 10 years but i have always wondered about this technique. I have a horse that only changes his front legs. i've done tons of simple changes and when i work on it he actually gets some of them! I rode bareback and worked on them the other day...
  17. Jumping
    Just thought i'd share the clips from my mare's first time jumping 3'9. we did a progressive grid that slowly built in size to the oxer it became. MG is a 5 year old dutch warmblood X german riding pony mare who i broke last november myself and brought along on my own. (: here's a sample...
  18. Horse Trainers
    I am having a hard time finding any eventing trainers in the Columbus/central Ohio area that are actually taking their clients/horses to three day events to compete. Does anyone know of any trainers that are within reasonable driving distance of Columbus that will haul out with their clients to...
  19. Horse Pictures
    i really wanted to show everyone some pictures of my "new" little mare in her first clinic! they grow up so fast! MG is my four year old Dutch Warmblood X Westphalian Riding Pony mare by Popeye. I purchased her in November and she'd only had a handful of rides on her at that point. back in...
  20. Jumping
    OK, my new loan horse is an ex-showjumper, he's fifteen.one and he can jump over one metre twenty. I'm loaning him at the same yard hes been at for the last ten years so he hasn't had the disruption of moving or anything, and he doesn't have any injuries and he's about fifteen so he's not young...
