    The other possibility is that the saddle rigging is too far forward for the horse. I had this problem with my horse. The saddle then rises in the back because the act cinching up leverages the front...

    Sure!

    Well, I haven't had a problem with it. My gelding decided to grow shoulders between 5 and 6 years of age. Now he only fits a full QH bar saddle that makes my hips ache. So I school in a extra wide...

    A Thought

    Coming from background of seeing badly ridden barrel horses, I would suspect the major problem is the expecting any kind of contact. Those riders are not good with their hands, and I would suspect,...

    You Might Try Here

    Not sure if they have what you're looking for, but definitely have the best pony bit variety I've seen.

    Highly Recommend Her

    I worked with Cordia this last fall after my 6 year old QH outgrew his saddle. I was really impressed with her. I live relatively local to her and she was able to come out and physically fit my...

    I'm sorry that this is happening to you, but it's making me feel much better. My Quarter Horse does the same thing when he's a little confused about what I'm asking. I usually fix it by lightening my...

    I believe you've pretty much summarized why this horse is a bad idea. While the 3 year old will be super green for a while, at least he doesn't have any bad habits under saddle.

    The other thing I would examine, from the point of view of someone who's made the switch from local to at least interstate travel for shows, is are you feeling tense? IME, WP beastie's back use is...

    If you're just starting out, you might do what my instructor suggested for me (I'm of similar height and weight) and begin in an all-purpose saddle-in my experience even the nice ones are WAY cheaper...
  10. That sucks.

    Does he lock up when they are walking or trotting towards him?

    If he doesn't I would say work your way up to having them canter towards/past him. If he does, I would work him at the edge of his...

    Sorry. I was being vague. He presently does western pleasure, horsemanship, equitation, hunter under saddle, showmanship, trail, and western riding. He's one of those types that's so talented and...

    Location

    Right. I'm in Minnesota in the Northeast corner of the Twin Cities. I would love some advice about possible teachers. I watched at a few shows this summer, and I saw quite a variety of teaching...

    Switching to Dressage

    Hi Everyone,
    I'm a long time lurker, but first time poster. I've been showing in Western Pleasure and Hunter Under Saddle for a long time. However (and this may sound funny to dressage people) I'm...
