    Why would you want one? These bits were fashionable in the early sixties, but the phase soon wore off. They are heavy awkward bits and I've never known a horse go better in one of these than an...

    Side-saddle is not as effective a communication tool as a rider sat in the middle with a leg at either side.

    Some women still hunt side-saddle - but not the ones who do horse trials! Side-saddle...

    They certainly don't compete here in England in affiliated dressage comps. Only in ladies hunter classes - but most women choose to ride astride, because it's better.

    Surely they only compete at...

    Although it does look elegant, I don't think of it as real riding.

    It's more of fancy dress thing. Isn't it?

    I used to walk alongside, take the reins myself, get the horse accepting the bit and then give the rider back the reins. I'd continue to walk alongside, just toching th rein now and then when the...

    You've done well. I disagree with those who infer this horse would be better if you'd spent longer. The horse is what it is!

    It's very obvious that you have never trained horses to passage Spirithorse. Otherwise you would be well aware that many horses become irregular in this pace when first learning. This can take...

    mickeydoodle speaks the truth. He's a brave man and I admire and agree with him.

    The school looks narrow, perhaps only fifteen metres wide.

    Yeah I was taught to use my lower leg when I was ten! I learned better when I got old. A well trained horse doesn't need lower leg. All it needs is a lengthening of the leg to deepen the rider's...

    They wear stuff which is comfy and suitable for their sports. All very different. As would be the new dressage wear.

    I never use the keepers, I just let the loose bit lie under my leg. If it bothers you get dressage leathers.

    I used to use one. They certainly do keep the saddle in it's place. Foregirths were quite popular about twenty years ago. I haven't seen one used for ages. They're not cheap but definitely work well.
