    I usually jump 1x per week. I mostly ride dressage and hack out.

    Canadians - Logistics of eventing in the US?

    I am thinking about going to Aspen Farms in September but have never evented in the US. Sounds like you have to be registered with the USEA and the horse does as well. But what about passports? Do...

    I have Premier Equine (PEI) and they are the best XC boots I have ever come across. Super, super light weight but also very secure and sturdy. They have vents in the front so the leg stays nice and...

    Sounds like he doesn't understand what the bit means. He isn't actually sensitive in the sense that he needs a super soft bit because he listens so well - instead he doesn't actually listen properly...

    GoPro - Tips on Adjusting

    Question for you GoPro users: how do you adjust your camera to ensure that the field of view is ideal? I have had a GoPro for a while now but haven't figured out how to nail it every time....

    I like the idea of a stretchy, comfortable coat. I generally think it's about time we rid the world of the ludicrous, elitist, and utterly out dated horse show fashions once and for all. But, that...

    My horse doesn't need much warm up. We just debuted at 2nd level and I walked into warm up 10 min before my test. My theory is that if it isn't trained and obedient by show day you certainly aren't...

    I ride in an old Passier that offers minimal help. Since getting it a few months ago my equitation has improved a lot but I still have a long way to go.
    I hate thigh blocks and deep seats: I feel so...

    So you score better for doing the transition at the letter rather than between letters even if it says "between M and C" on the test? Good to know.

    What about sitting the trot? Since most people post the trot at training level (especially in eventing) is it better to sit (because it just looks better) or to post (for fear of riding him too...
  11. Riding an easy eventing test on a 2nd/3rd level horse?

    My horse and I have our first recognized event debut in two weeks. We are going pre-training which is roughly equivalent to novice in the US if any of you dressage-ies know about eventing levels. The...

    I am having this exact same problem.
    I also have a Passier GG that fits my high-withered, super short-backed TB cross. I can't believe you've found a Collegiate to fit - I would never have guessed...

    I am sick to my stomach reading this thread. It continues to disgust me that there is so much money in the horse world that horses are treated like robots rather than living things.
    But we see it...

    The two positions are COMPLETELY different so it's no wonder you (like all of us) struggle with it! I also rode H/J for a long time before also starting dressage (now I event). I got lessons for a...

    I call my horse primarily a dressage horse (2nd/3rd) but we jump and event too.
    So weekly hacking. Weekly jumping. And I also do bridleless and I love to clicker train with him. I find clicker...

    That's great. There is no reason why a TB should not be able to compete at that level (and much higher) if trained correctly. Unfortunately most of the emphasis these days in the dressage world is on...

    The haunches should never be moved to straighten the horse, anyway. We straighten the horse with the front legs and the hind legs follow. Horses do not think with their haunches - hind legs are...

    PS: Bad rides TOTALLY affect me. I beat myself up like crazy after having a bad ride and get very depressed. If I am in a longer term funk with my horse it really bothers me. A few months ago I went...

    I go though funks as well.
    Although mine do not spring from a lack of confidence but more the opposite: I am such a perfectionist that sometimes I latch onto something that I want to fix and drill...

    But again, this wouldn't be an issue specifically with the dressage. If the horse is amped up by the sight up jumps it should be amped up in the warm up for the jumping phases, the warm up for the...

    I am surprised there aren't more posters suggesting that it is a RIDER problem - not a horse problem.
    The horse has no idea what a "shadbelly" is or what braids are or what a dressage arena is for...

    I didn't suggest that your reins be loose and floppy. But the horse shouldn't be dropping behind the contact in the first place - that itself is a huge issue.

    It sounded from your original post...

    I do not believe in "riding forward into the hand" and evidently neither does your mare. If you drive from the back, block from the front, that only leaves UP for your horse and that's exactly what...

    When I walk a course I stop every few jumps and re-play the course in my mind. I even talk my way through it.
    I like to visualize everything. And the night before I usually lie there visualizing...

    Honestly, I'm not usually a Stubben fan but I found an old Stubben Imperator for my super short-backed high-withered TB/Dutch. The saddle is nearly 50 years old and the leather is AMAZING. I was...
