    I agree that lead line/lunge is best for young children to start. Instructor likely has to chase pony because of bouncing hands on ponies mouth. Even at the sitting trot it doesn't look like there is...

    Depends on build of pony & rider, large barrel will take up a long leg. For example a rider with a taller upper body and short neck pony will not be a good looking pair. I am around 5'4 and ride a...

    I am actually quite allergic to horse hair & dust :eek: and I find clothes I wear to clip in, even after a couple washes, give me random break outs. The rain suit is a good idea!

    What do you guys wear for clipping? I usually just put on some old clothes I don't want anymore and chuck them after clipping is done. However I am running out of clothes I no longer want... Lol. I...
