    Try to not only watch him in the ring, but also in the schooling area before he shows.
    Best is to watch him show first and then try him, that way you have an idea what to expect and you won't have...

    Get your trainer and her trainer to earn their commissions by working together and doing what they need to do to get the deal done. :-D

    We have a sad case in my area right now, where somebody wanted a safe pony for a timid little girl and ended up buying a pony who the entire neighborhood knows are prone to bad behaviour, the wors of...

    Not having read all posts I run a risk of repeating what somebody else has already said

    I feel that the problem with schooling could easily be solved if trainers just worked together. Everybody is...

    I think that once they have switched horses they are not allowed to switch back again.

    I think it depends a lot on what moment the picture is taken, compare theese for example. :-)

    Great way to get your horses lame in my opinion!

    I don't consider anything under 2 ft to be jumping but rather a part of flatwork for the jumpers and they will do work over small jumps once or...

    In Sweden the owner of the horse always has a right to the X-rays or any other findings.
    All vets are also required by law to volonteer any and all information they have on a horse during a PPE...

    Hi, thanks for your input guys. I haven't been online for a few days and was surprised this thread was still alive!

    I've read through all posts and pretty much feel that it has all been said at...

    #wishful
    But you are doing the hunters right? I can absolutely see that working out just fine.

    It is impossible to do 1.10-1.20 jumpers on a large pony on the buckle. The courses are too...

    AKB. I didn't think so, but that is what I'm dealing with.

    I have a student with ADD and she does require a different approach for sure. She stays very focused in her lessons compared to "real...

    #Perfect10 It certainly would be helpful, my "better" (for lack of a better word) students do private or on occation semi-private lessons and I have ridden almost all of their horses at some point...

    That is a good idea. They do have dressage trainers come in as well and that would absolutely allow for more time to adress the needs of this pony then what we have in my jumper lessons. :-D
    I know...

    AKB
    But I bet your daughter never told her instructor off and then trotted away?

    #littleum
    She is perfectly capable of establishing a contact as soon as we start jumping or even just cantering rails. The pony will sometimes take a strong contact and accept it nicely when there...

    CHT. Good tip. I did think about that too. Just starting pretty much straight away with work over rails, transitioning from canter rails to trot rails etc. A she would have to ride her pony. B, she...

    Ha ha. Yes, reading back I can see how I might come across like that.

    I have taught beginners and ponycamps in the past and with smaller kids as well as beginner adults who might come out just to...

    #Dreambig
    The biggest problem here is that kids learn pretty quick that putting their ponies or horses "on the bit" is the mark of a good rider. They confuse "on the bit" with the position of the...

    Thanks for the input. The students there all show at about a 1.20 level (or equivalent for ponies) so they are not beginners. My feeling is if I told her she is not allowed to jump if she didn't do...
  20. Student only wants to flat on long rein. Trainers WWYD?

    So I'm located in Sweden and most people board their own horses over here and share in a nearby indoor belonging to their "riding club". I'm hired by different clubs to do clinic-type grouplessons on...

    Loved it. Really good read and he makes an excellent Point about the overcrowdedness of the showgrounds. There's all that space in the back, some things, such as smaller divisions should maybe move...

    I'm guessing Michael in second, since he did the first jump off the left lead and the inside turn to the trotjump. A bit shy in the hand gallop though...

    Yeah, that seems awful harsh. I would absolutely expect to be allowed to use a lesson saddle for a half or thirdlease, probably even a fulllease if it was lessonhorse and not going to shows.

    There will be instances when you accidentally end up on a half stride in front of the jump. The trick is to go into a jumping position by closing your hip angle and support without shifting your...

    Try babypowder on the rubs and showsheen on the inside of the blankets. You might also want to alter them slightly for a better fit, it's not superhard to move the buckles a bit and if you do a small...
