  1. Saddle Discussions & Saddle Fitting Queries
    Hello everyone, I would like to know what people think of the Corriente barrel racing saddles? I'm considering purchasing one but want to make sure it's of good quality. Thank you!
  2. Saddle Discussions & Saddle Fitting Queries
    Adam here! I’m a horse-lover’s dad. I like them, but my oldest daughter is the rider, competitor and crazy lover of them. She rides English and competes at Hunter/Jumper and Drassage(sp?). She is getting into Western this year though as she’s joined her high school team and Western is a big part...

    Western saddle what brand :cry:
  4. 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...
  5. Western Riding Queries & Competition sub forums
    Hello everyone, When I was younger I did English riding and then took a huge long break. I started riding western in December of last year. I thought I was doing fine with my leg cues until my more experienced friend told me I needed to cue my horse with my legs more and not so much my reins. I...
  6. General Riding queries
    Hey! This is a dumb question, but, well, I am insecure so I ask dumb questions a lot! Would you say I still count as a good horse rider even if I can't/don't want to ever gallop? Lol I just feel like an inadequate rider just for that reason. I just do Western riding so no jumping or anything :)...
  7. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    I have always wondered. What stirrup size do people like best, I mean the depth of the stirrup. Because at a certaint point it becomes too big and you can't get your heel down properly, but some people like an inch or more. What size are your stirrups and what discipline do you do?
  8. Equine related Surveys & Questionnaires
    Thank you to everyone on the forum who has already completed my survey. I am just reposting it one last time before I end the survey by the end of next week. So, if anyone who has not completed the survey feel free to fill it in! I will also be sharing the results with anyone who would like to...
  9. Equine related Surveys & Questionnaires
    Hello everyone, I am a fourth-year Equine, Sports, and Business student at Van Hall Larenstein University in the Netherlands currently conducting a survey for horse owners in the United States. This survey is part of my dissertation to finish my degree and is in collaboration with a specialist...
  10. Western Riding Queries & Competition sub forums
    Hey! This is just a completely random question that popped up in my head. Do people who ride/own a Western horse ever gallop it? Or is that not normal 😂 FYI I know a girl who does sometimes but I NEVER plan to lol. Galloping just seems like a race horse thing to me? Or if you’re in LOTR riding...
  11. Western Riding Queries & Competition sub forums
    Hello! I ride Western and I have pretty basic riding experience; direct and neck reining, leg cues, walk, trot etc. I’ve been taking lessons off and on depending on my schedule and feel nice and confident in them. The next step in training is the canter. I’ve done it a few times but haven’t...
  12. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    Hello! so I’m not in the market for a horse right now, but I’m just wondering a couple things; how hard is it to find a horse that’s just calm but also listens to commands like trot, canter, etc? Nothing fancy just a solid (teenager) western pleasure horse. I work with lesson horses and they...
  13. Saddle Discussions & Saddle Fitting Queries
    Hi, I’m looking for a solid western saddle with a 17’ seat and FQH bars. I don’t have a huge budget (less than $1000) and there aren’t tack stores around me. Any suggestions on where to find such a beast? Brands to focus on or avoid?
  14. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello! I'm new here! :) I have a couple questions; I've been working at a therapeutic ranch for a while (though most of their lessons are for non-therapy riders), and have been wondering a few things. I work on cleaning, grooming, tacking and helping with lessons so I barely ride, but I do...
  15. Horse Talk
    I have a 9-10 year old TWH, I was thinking about putting him in a wonder bit. Someone said that it’s a training bit only I’ve been riding him in a long shank walking horse bit since September. He pretty much does everything that need him to do UNTIL we’re at a trail ride and say that I want to...
  16. General Riding queries
    I just purchased a Total Contact saddle from the UK after a friend let me try hers. I fell in love. I was super suspicious about no tree and all, but my mare moved way better in it, and the stirrups put my legs in a nice place, and it was very comfy. I used a thinline bareback pad under it...
  17. Saddle Discussions & Saddle Fitting Queries
    I have a lease thoroughbred that I’m planning on hopefully buying in the future, he currently has a jump and dressage saddle but I was wanting to get a fender so my dad could ride him (and I also love riding in fenders haha) but the thing is Hugo’s (the tb) owner doesn’t know anything about his...
  18. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    I am not widely versed in bits and I’ve rode my mare in a Tom thumb bit for years! We used to barrel race and compete in Gymkhana but now we just trail ride. In general, if I’m in a relaxed arena setting riding I just ride her in a D ring snaffle but she’s definitely heavier on this. because she...

    i’m switching to western after eventing for years and having trouble figuring out western saddle fit, I plan on getting into gaming but struggling to find a saddle to fit my high withered mare! any suggestions would be appreciated!! her dressage and jump saddles are MW if that helps!!
  20. Reining
    Ive always wanted to do reining and just try new things but the only problem is that the area I live in doesn’t have very many western trainers and the ones that there are (like mine) just do WP and ranch riding and trail. But, I am DYING to try something new. So if anyone knows any trainers...
