  1. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Our family loves rodeos and farm work. Unfortunately we don't live on a farm but our grandparents do and aren't even 30 minutes away from us. But, I am the only one who rides the horses. My younger brother has taken a huge interest in Steer wrestling and wants to do it in the future along with...
  2. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hey all! I'm teaching some informal riding lessons to a few kids who love horses. Two of them are a little older and have been improving a lot. The other is a 6 year old girl who quite frankly does not understand most of what I advise her to do. Up until recently I have just led her around on...
  3. Horse Training
    I have a six yr old gh that I just got and I don't think he knows how to lunge at all. I want to be able to lunge him in new places, check his movements, and release extra energy when it is needed. Any videos, tips or methods or particular trainers would be helpful on how to introduce a horse...

    Not literally. :lol: Anyway, my BO does group lessons in the summertime, primarily aimed at kids 5-12ish. I've had a couple of people at the barn approach me and ask if I would consider doing private lessons with them. I've been hesitating to answer because I'm a little worried about what my BO...
  5. Horse Training
    Hey y'all. So Cheyenne and I have been practicing for halter classes. I'm all set, and thought some showmanship would be fun. We are going to play around here at our locals. No one cares if we are pro trained, blah, blah, blah:lol: So, she'll set up, walk, trot, and all that stuff. She has...
  6. Horse Trainers
    I recently went to work as a ranch hand at a horse camp and I really enjoyed it. One of the main things we did was give the campers riding lessons. I am under 18, so I wasn't able to actually instruct the kids since I'm not CHA certified. I know that I know enough to teach kids the basics...

  8. Horse Talk
    Hey all, I am in my late teens and my two passions are horses and kids. I've really wanted to start teaching kids riding lessons and I was wondering what your opinion on this is? I don't do top level showing or anything but I know my way around a horse and will be starting a part time job as a...
  9. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    (I'm posting this in this thread because I think the topic spans all disciplines and wasn't sure where else it would fit - feel free to suggest a more relevant forum!) I have been riding for about 15 years and have a Masters in Child Development, so this is a dual passion for me. Has anyone...
  10. Horse Talk
    Hello :) Okay, so I have suddenly thought that I wanted to teach students in their riding lessons. Why this came up, I have no idea. The whole idea actually popped up yesterday. Yesterday I had a party with some of my buds, who are all into horses. Two of which take lessons, but one goes...
  11. Jumping
    Hello! I was just wondering how I could teach my POA gelding to jump. he's a western horse strictly, but I think jumping would be a fun thing to learn to do on the side. Unfortunately, there is NO ONE here that jumps, or rides English for that matter. I have jumped before and I can ride English...
  12. Driving
    Hi guys, in need of some help here. I bought two single harnesses and then I bought a conversion kit for them so I could use the Harnesses both ways(as a single or as a team) Problem is I have only drivin my minis as singles and have no idea how to hook this all up as a team. I bought the pole...
  13. Horse Riding Critique
    Hi I have a ‘test’ stuff for study (I’m learning to be a riding coach). What I have to do is look at a riders position in halt ,walk, trot, canter and talk about the riders current position /and aids that need working on. Then recommend exercises to improve it and find the cause. well the...
  14. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    What are your thoughts on self-taught riding without taking riding lessons? Or already knowing the basics of riding, but learning the advanced stuff on your own? I heard of this the other day and didn't know what to think about it... sounds like it could be dangerous, but maybe beneficial in...
  15. Horse Talk
    Hey guys! I haven't posted much on here as of late, but I'm definitely intrigued! It's hard to find a good bunch of horsey folks where I'm from. I've ridden horses since I was five, owned my own quarter horse, competed a little in dressage, etc. but I have a question for all of you. In '06 I...
