    Nikki goes around better and happier in her bit than my horse does in a simple loose ring. It's more about the hands than the bit. Ignore the haters! You two are awesome.

    P.S. I might be in...

    And if it makes you feel better I am super uncoordinated with the lunge line too :P. I like to no use a whip or use a shorter whip (like a dressage whip, or flag or something) and have two hands on...

    She sure is beautiful! And seems very pleasant in the beginning. Remember, horses are not "bitches" or "assholes". She learned this reaction somewhere. She did not walk out of her stall one day and...

    What a horse/rider does a show is not always indicative of the entire picture. This horse could very well not jump at all at home and only jump at shows. I also agree that it depends what level this...

    There is a very nice lady that makes customized pommel pads on eBay. You can get any color yarn and any dimensions you wish. She is extremely pleasant to work with and her quality of work is...

    I am at a private farm so chatting isn't too big an issue for me.

    -Don't clean tack: I clean tack on the weekends and days where I am not in a rush. I would preferably clean my bridle every ride...

    Being fat, breeding and gelding late would have been my answers as well.

    Don't know what you talking about. Horse peeps are the best peeps. :cool:

    There are shady people in all walks of life. The horse world is just a smaller place I think.

    Agree with above posters that you may be overthinking it. I would focus on even distribution of thigh, knee, calf. Worrying about ankle contact may cause you to draw up and shorten your leg, which...

    23 and still read them. No shame. My mom also likes them :lol:

    I don't think you said what breed she is...what is she? She looks a lot like my guy so I was just curious.

    She's beautiful! She will make a lovely eq horse.

    Eq horses generally have a 'presence" in the ring but don't have to be beautiful movers or jumpers. If she is able to adjust smoothly she will be...

    I have had my horse since he was 4. I was the first one to jump him and have done the majority of his training/riding. He's 10 now and is such a saint. I often ask him how he ended up so awesome...

    This.

    What type of footing is it that you can't wait until after you cooled down your horse to pick up poop? Also, good footing is where I would want to lunge my excited horse...I get the raking...

    I personally like half seat because there is more variety to it and it allows me to do less with my hands.

    When I am constantly sitting I have to immediately go to my hands to slow down or...

    I don't think you can fault people for reacting different if there is video evidence vs. if the account is simply told to you. Domestic violence is gruesome and if you have not been exposed to it...

    I actually think synthetic pads looks nicer than the actually sheepskin. Brighter white and sharper looking!

    I always read the rules as there were only restrictions at the same show. So you couldn't do the Low AOs and Adults at the same competition but there was not time restriction between shows if you...

    I moved from NC with my guy right in the smack middle of the Polar Vortex last year. Even with the wayyyyy below average temps in NC, VA, and MD it was much more brutal here in IN (in the -20s more...

    Vets wrap the front part of the stirrup bar so your stirrup rests farther back. Even a small amount will make a huge difference.

    I was terribly sick for about 4 1/2 weeks (stayed at home and in bed with no physical activity for 2 of those weeks :/)...Needless to say I have lost all core and thigh strength. Squats, planks, push...

    Don't know your horse but IME horses that are not happy to lift or be light in their front end are usually weak in their hind end (whether due to conformation or general fitness). I would put two...
