  1. Looking to rent a 2 horse trailer in MI--Grand Rapids, Caledonia area

    I have a young horse who needs to get out and see the world, but I don't have access to a trailer. Does anyone have a two horse they'd be willing to rent In West Mich, close to GR, Byron Center,...
  2. Riding with one stirrup? Uneven stirrups?

    Hi everyone,

    I have a longstanding issue with having too much weight in my right stirrup and too much weight in that seatbone.

    Would riding with one stirrup help as an exercise? Would...

    Agreed. Drawreins aren't evil in the right hands, especially if you only engage them occasionally during the ride and are using two sets of reins. A horse can be uphill in draw reins, too...I've...

    No doubt. If you have a good eye for horseflesh and are able to train yourself to some degree (augmenting that w/lessons or trainer rides when you get stuck) then it shouldn't be hard to find a...

    Okay, so everyone who agrees with some rules/laws that protect people--even at the expense of some personal freedoms--are socialists?

    Okay, this is a bit extreme--from helmet rules at shows to this.

    Not every safety precaution/regulation set by the gov't or a private entity is a terrible, crazy encroachment on freedom. Some of...

    It's other people's business when a personal choice affects other's lives. We live in a community and therefore our business overlaps with other people's. We have laws because some people hurt...

    Absolutely get a trainer and barn set up BEFORE you get the horse. Spend time lessoning with said trainer to make sure the barn environment/teaching style is what you want. I'd say 80+% of your...

    Wow, that is a lovely horse. I don't think he's too camped out behind--just short backed and leggy. My horse is built like that and tracks/overtracks quite nicely. I love his neck set/how short...

    You say it isn't fear of falling--is it performance anxiety?

    My "bareback" setup is this--western pad, blanket surcingle, and some old gel pad I bought years ago. Doesn't lock me in, but keeps my breeches clean and offers a tiny bit of padding.

    That's what I love about it--you can't be crooked. I also sense that my horse likes it--he seems to find it as fun as I do.
