    Composite Wide Track $40 stirrups are the best for me! The HS Bow Balance and other flexible ones hurt me worse. $40 composite wife tracks are a miracle in my book!

    The rule changes would take my friends and I out of competing. 13.3hh ponies and are terrified of bigger jumps! If this goes through we'll all be stuck at the 2' division forever or move over to...

    I should have expanded I am a dressage rider who dabbles in eventing and is thinking about moving towards hunters. My trainer is an upper level eventer who by no means claims to be a hunter trainer....

    Chewing on the bit in hunter round?

    My mare developed the terrible habit of playing with the bit when she's bored. You can hear her halfway across the arena. This is a big no-no in dressage land so I put her in a rotational mullen...

    Use it and love it! My mare turns into a super hussy and this takes the edge waaaaay off. I took her off it after a year or so ago to see if we still needed it and the change back to insanity was...

    Interesting!! I do have a long femur and shorter lower leg. In a more forward flap would that help keep my alignment a little more visually desirable? I'm going to be getting into hunters more and...

    Thanks! I'm so used to shoulder-hip-heel and I saw the photos my heel is well in front of the line so I assumed that meant chair seat! I'll slide my foot back in the stirrups a bit and see if that...

    The video is too long to upload but I snagged some still shots of the ride at the walk, trot and canter (Viewer Beware! A hideous chairseating monster follows!!)...

    I just had the same problem this year! In days my stuff was fuzzy!!! I'd clean it...a few days later it was already pretty bad! After researching here I got Leather Therapy and just cleaned every...
  14. Chair seat with shorter stirrups only??

    I'm just getting back into jumping after a year off from surgery and I videoed my ride yesterday. In warmup with a longer stirrup I'm lined up properly. When I shorten my stirrups four holes I was...

    Thanks for the replies! My poor friend got this horse after we retired her mare for respiratory issues this summer after she spent thousands on diagnostics. Now we get this one and he's having...
  16. Can hoof balance really cause lameness?

    My friend just purchased the most fabulously tempered perfect horse. When we went to see him the owner (cowboy type) was in the process of "trimming" him and really took a ton off. Horse was...

    Thanks! Another stupid question! I'm hoping to watch people go in front if me but it will be just my luck I'll be first! LOL Do I wait for the horse who finishes in front of me to exit the ring...

    Thanks for the tips so far! I'm super excited to try it out! I ride silently in dressage as we are penalized for talking but I jabber up a storm laughing and praising pony when we go XC or stadium....
  19. Ok give me a crash course! Do's and don't at my first H/J show!

    You've all got me this far so DQ/Mini Eventer has 2 weeks before I attempt to go alone to my first H/J show is 15 years! It's a schooling show and I'll be doing the hunters and the jumper derby. A...

    I try to think of it as "if I feel her push, push back" instead of pull. So if I feel her pushing her shoulder out and falling on it don't pull with your inside, push with your outside. I just...

    I'm on one! 13.3hh ClydesdaleX pony, I'm 5'6 and I couldn't be having more fun! She's a little short-legged so I'm not sure I'll ever do more than BN on her but I would go higher over obstacles that...

    Thank you! I bet that is why I was getting kafuffled seeing examples looking on the forehand/super low. I was scratching my head! That Hunter Under Saddle explains it! Any links you have to what...
