    petite filly, what a rude and tactless post yours was. I asked specifically in my original post that any replies did not attack me or my instructor, both of which you did. What did you think your...

    Just My Style, thank you. :) I sent you a PM.

    I don't want to be overconfident as I agree that rearing is public enemy #1 for dangerous habits. But I just have to say that I have ridden horses with rearing tendancies and I have NEVER seen...

    With all due respect, please create another thread about off-set side rein adjustment if you want to argue about it, USDF's position towards it, etc. Everyone has been so helpful to this point, and...

    Thanks, all. I agree with you mazu and I'm going to ditch the side reins. They are certainly not necessary for training and not worth the risk to this horse. I think you hit the nail on the head...

    Yes, his teeth have been checked and done. I ride with a light contact, trying to progress to more as he develops. I would be fine with the idea of not working him with side reins again - I just...
  11. Feeling awful...horse flipped over in side reins

    I have a very quiet and laid back 6 year old who is green but going well w-t-c and learning his dressage basics. I'm an experienced rider working with an instructor. I have lunged him in side reins...
