    My gelding used to have a jackhammer trot. Teaching him to accept my aids, stretch, and use his back properly rather than drop it & just make his legs move changed his trot from jackhammer to...

    When I was in college, I lived in a converted 2-stall barn retrofitted into a wonderful 2-bedroom apartment/house on the grounds of an old estate overlooking a river in RI. My mother hated it; I...

    I recently learned how to do what you're calling European braids. They're super easy, quicker for me than rubber bands (I don't have to be nearly as neat with them) & they look really nice on my...

    Here is my GRP, 9 y.o. in the photo, our first time out at 4th level & my first time showing in years. I've had him since he was 3 and was so happy to be out there with him. Love this pony!

    I ride a pony, albeit a very nice German Riding Pony, and have attended clinics where for sure I have been outclassed by professionals on far nicer horses. And I have had clinicians compliment the...

    I have a Hennig cob-sized double for my 15 h. GRP. It isn't rolled but the noseband tapers towards the bits so it isn't too much bridle for a cob-sized head. In fact, I get a lot of compliments on...

    My short-backed 15 hand GRP loves his 17.5" Stubben Genesis. The non-gusseted upswept panels insure that the saddle isn't too long for his back. I love how little padding the saddle has, especially...

    I ordered it at the end of September 2011 and it arrived just before Christmas. The fitting was done by a Stubben rep but it shipped to my local tack store. Made me feel good to support my local...

    I purchased a custom Stubben Genesis & found the whole process to be quite simple with a wonderful result. My hard-to-fit horse may be easier to fit than yours though. He's a short-backed GRP with...
