  1. English Riding Queries & Discussions
    I rode in an English saddle for the first time today, I loved it! My horse (8-year-old morgan/quarter horse and ex-cutting horse) responded very well too. He neck reins and is very responsive to leg pressure. I am fairly competent with western riding and loved my new experience in an English...
  2. Horse Health
    My horse has been recovering from what we believed to be a parasite problem I’ve been working with my vet on.

  7. Dressage
    I have been working on transitions with my horse for quite a while. It's rather difficult for him to make downward transitions, but the Canter - Trot transitions are the worst. When I first got him, he did the ' fall forward ' transition, which we have worked through, but to compensate he has...
