    It depends on the horse I'm riding. One mare is outside leg only, and she will NOT canter if your weight isn't perfectly centered (she teaches little kids to canter all the time, so assumes anything...

    Plenty of people get hot bloods as a first horse and do just fine. It has less to do with hotblood/coldblood than a proper match of horse to rider under competent supervision. My kids are learning...

    Yes.

    The park horse I ride is hilarious as heck. The first ride was a, "Are you sure I'm not going to die on this thing?" Took me a bit to realize he wasn't doing anything, lol. Now I can just...

    That's complete and utter BULLSH!T. What college are you even studying at?

    I have a PB Arab, and two half Arabs. Only one is spooky, and there are other reasons for a lot of that. Very few of...

    Another vote that they CAN be found. My Arabians will do this, and are pretty good at instinctually knowing when something isn't right and adjusting to that.

    How many people are there in breed shows? There's no hope of an Olympic medal in western pleasure or saddleseat, but people still show it and love it. Dressage will still have plenty of high-level...

    And honestly, the comments about you being a part-boarder? Those might just be a, "Hey, we ALL ride here, you don't trump anyone" type of warning.

    It sounds like this has less to do with being a part-boarder, and more to do with fitting in. If the majority of the barn is trail riders, and you're doing something different, you have to consider...

    I allow my trainer to use my older mare as a lesson horse (his lessons are super light for the young kids, which is all this mare does, and it's good for her arthritis to get out more) and he has one...

    Yup, lol! Nothing like w/t kids warming up with the pros on park horses while the ammies are on their costume horses. Absolute madhouse. Throw in a few western horses, maybe a driving horse or...

    Bits too low, followed by more tongue room would be my guess if you're not experiencing problems in a regular snaffle.

    Enjoying that trainwreck now... So, looking at her website, she's in TX now, and trains AAA quality ponies and horses...

    WTF is up with her use of commas?

    I'm so very sorry for your loss, and the manner in which it happened.

    I don't have much to say that hasn't already been said, but maybe we need a sticky thread for how to check out haulers. Or...

    I think this entire thread was worth it just for that post.


    ETA: And I too miss the NP threads. Man, those were funny. Anyone still have that video of him teaching p/p?

    This is what I do, except I always land with feet together (I'm short AND clumsy, so attempting the step down is just not my thing). And I have HUGE boobs, so not holding the horn is a guaranteed...

    In saddleseat land, where patent browbands are common, they are used for shows only to keep them in good condition. You can be crafty and sew a flannel cover for the browband if you want to school...

    Then maybe it's time to have riders sign waivers saying they understand the risks of riding without a helmet when they show.

    Honestly folks, worry about what is on your head, not what is on...

    This.

    The Neidersuss trees tend to run wider, and my Neidersuss has fit a lot of different body types rather well, so that might be an option. You can usually find one in good condition well...

    Might be the lack of helmets. When you have a helmet on, it does tend to make your face look smaller, since there's some bulk to even the slimmest ones. For hunt seat, the hunt caps are commonly...

    For schooling shows, clipping won't be a big deal outside of neatening everything up, but for information on Arabian show trims, I'd start here:

    It's all about timing. Once the horse bolts/rears, it's too late. However, if you are good at catching it before it gets started, a set of draws can help you shut it down.
