    Agree with kdow's suggestion to have your trainer watch you "ride alone" but an additional idea - video a lesson and riding alone. I recently taped myself and I just zoned out - lots of baby rides...

    Great advice here, and I'd say look for a property with the best horse facilities you can afford. I bought a place with cute, safe, practical horse set up - not fancy, but smartly done, and the house...

    I will never forget when I broke a rib once, and had to take a month off. I was younger, and had just started learning about lateral. I put a gymnastics ball on an old weight bench - wedged between...

    I go back to the fact that horses were ridden SIDESADDLE with great effect in the past, and look at what horses can do in the Paralympics. I think if we are consistent in our training, which is...
  5. I prefer having two, but you need to get the...

    I prefer having two, but you need to get the right mix for the time/money you have. When I didn't have time for both for personal reasons, I partially leased both to riders I trusted with trainers I...

    I love the concept of eventing - training a horse to be obedient in dressage, brave and fit for cross country, and still able to do showjumping. But I refuse to attend any part of Rolex - to me,...
  7. I used to ride mainly hunters, not because I...

    I used to ride mainly hunters, not because I didn't love dressage, but didn't own my own horse! Anyway, very lucky to have hunter trainers who were really good at dressage/flat work (a la GM...
  8. For jumping of any type, I like seeing how they...

    For jumping of any type, I like seeing how they react through a "jumping chute." In quotes because just putting out one groundpole at a time, and seeing how they adjust and figure it out on their...

    Just had to laugh as I read more posts on this. This was not my trainer, but I rode at a barn with an open trainer policy. The trainer was wonderfully nice, but had a very loud, distinctive voice....

    I ride dressage now, but had an epiphany in a h/j lesson in college. The trainer would talk me through the lines - half halt, push, wait, etc. The BO, an experienced amateur, saw me move then wait...

    Could also check out Gladiator blankets. Highest denier I've found and criss-cross buckle closures, and come in regular and high neck styles. Carried by www.classicsaddlery.com. I've had some...

    I totally had this on my hunter to dressage horse as well. Not sure what your goal is ultimately, but if moving up the levels, as others have said, it's not going away. But it's not that the horse...

    Having lived in England for 6 months and kind of gotten used to the nuances of British expressions: the quote began with her saying it would be an incredible crowd, and where she said Americans do...

    I have a rescue child I thought had finally turned the corner, so splurged on a clinic with a Cadre Noir type. And I got to display my amazing bronc-busting skills! The boy decided to buck as high...

    I find Amigos fit most horses and hold up great even with my playful boys. But check out Gladiator blankets at classicsaddlery.com. If they have your size on clearance, best prices around! I'm...

    Total horse slut here - lost count at 278. Mom and Dad never bought me a horse, so lessons, catch riding, sales barns, a military career, etc - yeah, it adds up. I'm now happy to own two and they...

    I struggled and still struggle with this issue! I rode babies for YEARS, and on a long rein, I did a lot of inviting/reminding, etc. I always used my legs/seat first, but I am always told I have...

    I had the Ovation Evolution, bought based on extensive research and nothing but glowing reviews. However, it does NOT fit my OTTB regardless of gullet plate - not the right K panel/skidrow panel...
  19. One saddle for two horses - holy grail easier to find?

    I own a TB and a QH x Andy (PRE). The TB is my primary hunter but the cross loves to jump so we play with low level stuff. I recently had a saddle fitter out and none of my jumping saddles fit! My...
  20. Thanks guys! I'm heading to Equine Affaire...

    Thanks guys! I'm heading to Equine Affaire tomorrow and doing some shopping with these ideas:) And yes, to both crab and mvp - when a horse is truly bolting from fear, the textbook pulley rein will...
  21. I truly appreciate everyone's inputs. This...

    I truly appreciate everyone's inputs. This format is sometimes so limited - I could write a novel on the training journey with this boy. I've had him 7 years now. He was an unhandled stallion the...
  22. Thanks for all the suggestions! I am only...

    Thanks for all the suggestions! I am only showing at a local schooling circuit currently, but they follow USDF guidelines. He actually does try to bolt at times when showing - last year, the judge...
  23. Bit recommendations for horse that can bolt but evades behind the bit

    I have an Azteca rescue gelding that is very cute for dressage, but due to his lack of upbringing, we still deal with some fear issues. He's getting better - I am taking him out a lot - but in the...
  24. The dreaded saddle fit questions - jump saddle that fits like Passier GG for OTTB

    Well, I had a saddle fitter out, and I need a new jumping saddle! My OTTB mare has the high withers but well-sprung ribs and short back shape. There was an M. Toulouse that fit, but not sure of the...

    My parents were great about letting me ride, but refused to buy a horse for me. I knew early on I loved dressage - the idea of doing those movements fascinated me, and in my teen years, was...
