  1. Horse Training
    Hi everyone! I've been the proud owner of a new 14hh tank of a pony since November, and his ground manners were dreadful at home, but have been slowly progressing. Then we go to a new place, and suddenly I'm the one getting ran over and glared at because my horse is so herd-bound and insecure...
  2. English Riding
    One of the first things I was asked to work upon where I ride was to stand up in the stirrups, I still focus on it in each lesson even today... I'm told to grip with my knees as I rise up but I find that really hard to do while trying to find my balance! How should I correctly stand up in the...
  3. Horse Training
    Hi, I just got a new tb mare (never raced). For the most part things are going well, but she can either have perfect ground manners or be really distracted and pushy. On cross ties she either stands perfectly still or weaves back and forth repeatedly. I have tried correcting her and moving back...
  4. Tack and Equipment Classifieds
    Hi all! I am in need of a standing martingale. I would really love for it to match my bridle, which is oakbark--however, any medium brown will likely be fine! In my dream world, someone may happen to have one by HDR in oakbark that they no longer need as it would perfectly match! BUT, I am just...
  5. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hi all! :-) This will be short and sweet since I just wrote out a 2 paragraph post and then accidentally went off of the page, silly me. :lol: My horse Holly carries her head very high when being ridden and tosses her head when frustrated or when contact is applied. My friend rode her...
  6. Horse Health
    Could use a polos to wrap around the no bow wraps and use them as standing bandages? I know they are made of a different material, and polos do not provide a lot of support, but with the no bow/cotton wraps would they be okay?
  7. Driving
    I have a 13 year old Standardbred gelding who was a harness racer when he was younger. Then, he was not touched for 7 years until I got him last year. I have been riding him for the past year, but I just started driving him again about a month ago. He does really well when he's in motion... I...
  8. Horse Pictures
    Hello everybody, I had always dreamed of being able to have my horse stand on his hind feet while I'm on his back. Funnily enough, my horse was being very stubborn and refused to move forward and I insisted. My friend was taking a photo when suddenly my horse decided to stand and luckily he...
