    I don't know if someone's already said this, but this doesn't seem to be a very common fix, but it's the easiest way to fix this problem that I know of.

    Thank you both! I looked over some pictures, and I am jumping ahead. I guess I just thought that that was a result of my leg slipping, not what was causing it to slip, haha. So that brings up another...

    Help with Leg over Fences?

    I've been having a kind of interesting issue with my equitation lately. My leg is great on the flat, very quiet and secure, and I do lots of two point and riding without stirrups every ride. However,...

    My horse has low withers, too, and I ride him in a B.T. Crump Tomboy. I've seen several lightly used ones for sale at around $700, and I'd consider it "quality," especially for the price. It does...

  10. Getting A Horse To Calm Down Without Lunging

    So my horse has been in his stall the past couple days because of some bad weather, and I know from experience that he gets very spooky and energetic in situations like this. Now would probably be a...

    A little unrelated to OP's question, but hold on to the hope of there being high-placing, non-drugged, DIY horses. I know a kid who could probably make a medium pony look big, and she rides a green...

    An Odd Issue With Eq. Over Fences

    We started jumping my greenie over jumps that are about 2'-2'3" the other day, and in doing so, we discovered that he has a REALLY round jump over anything higher than 18". My issue is that I've only...

    I don't know whether it's as much the horse's height = ability as much as it is horse's height = proportion. I dwarf most anything under 16.2 that isn't big-boned enough to make things look a bit...
  18. Spinoff: Hunter, Jumper, or Eq. Horse?

    How do you determine which one a horse would be best at? I've never really understood this... Is it conformation? The way a horse moves and jumps is obviously a factor in hunters, but why do people...

    I don't ride a TB, but I ride a Paint/QH in hunters (actual, USEF hunters, not APHA hunters). So trust me, my "mutt-horse" and I know how you feel.
