  1. Horse Shows
    So I am of a local show club and they are struggling to get help from the members to put on a show. This is supposed to a member run club with board members to guide it.

  2. Horse Training
    After 20 years with the same sweet QH, I have purchased a new mare. She's a 16 year old QH mare and her only negative is the speed of her lope. SHE SHOOTS LIKE A CANNON! (And doesn't tire out) I believe she was barrel raced hard before I bought her (not sure as she is a rescue) because she...
  3. Horse Tack and Equipment
    My dad bought my 10 year old daughter her first saddle at an auction just over 3 years ago. It was a new Double T youth saddle. She is now starting to grow out of it. So it is time to get a new one. I have been searching for a while now and doing a lot of reading. I've realized most people say...

  9. Horse Trainers
    I recently have taken on 2 new horses to train. I used to always have my friend by my side to teach me what I didn't know. I don't believe in hurting a horse to ever get them to do what you want. :? The barn I am currently boarding at, well the girl I met, is a bit too rough when lunging. My...

  12. English Riding
    Usually, the horses I used to ride at my old stable, where two tough ponies. I would have to use a crop on the one a lot more then the other, but I still used crops on them. For the horse I ride (Bee) at my new stable, she is really sensitive. You barley have to put pressure on her sides to make...

    I know that a 'speed derby' is a show jumping event but what do you do and what are the rules? I am just curious to build up my horse knowledge as I'm not a real competition rider. Does anyone have a definition of a 'speed derby'?
