    Thanks for the replies, all!

    Pelvis position: Thanks for articulating what I couldn't figure out! It sure does look like my pelvis is tipped forward, which would account for the weird angles I...
  2. Why does my riding position look so weird?

    I never actually have the opportunity to see what I look like when I ride, but after going to a show this past weekend (our first!), the show photos made me a little cringey. I feel like there’s...

    I'm right-hand dominant and ride with my right hand (in the minority, but totally legal at shows as long as the rein tails fall on the right side). I ride in split reins with my pointer finger...

    Cool to see this thread revived!

    She doesn't scratch at ALL under saddle anymore (knock on wood!), and has become a very good horse citizen in all regards. Since my original post, I've put her in...

    I love my Boulet boots for riding, but for longevity, my vote goes to Rocky. It can be difficult to find Rocky boots with leather soles though.

    I'm within a few financial emergencies of being where your boarder is at.

    I have a 25-year-old horse who hasn't been ridden in years due to soundness issues and wouldn't make a good pasture or...

    This probably isn't it, but Horse Heaven by Jane Smiley? I think one of the story arcs in there is about a young boy who races at some bushleague tracks.
  9. Ranch horse goes English, what's acceptable turnout for open show?

    Just for fun, my little stock pony and I are going to be entering some English classes in a few local open shows. All the English gear I have is: English saddle, purple square pad, and paddock...

    I'm with Christa P, padded saddles always give me a bruise if I ride in them for any length of time. And padded seats—at least padded suede seats—give me sweaty butt. I love my slick seat saddle,...

    Check out American Horse Publications—their whole deal is equine media. Here's their list of social media specialists.

    Check out Allegany Mountain Trail Saddles. They're custom saddles, full leather (I think), and the endurance model (which you can get with a horn) is 22 lbs.

    When I average everything out, I spend about $1000-$1200/mo for my two horses. This includes board, routine vet care, farrier (only one horse has shoes), a pergolide scrip, and sporadic training...

    So this ranch is in the Sandhills of Nebraska, but if you're looking for a RANCH ranch vacation, check out Rowse's 1+1. They're a legit working ranch, and guests partake in almost all of the ranch...

    When I lived in Los Angeles I boarded my horse in Shadow Hills. The drive was usually under an hour if traffic cooperated. I kept my horse at a private barn, but I believe there were a few boarding...

    Coping with winter actually became more bearable for me when I gave myself permission to NOT ride :yes:. I spent a lot of time angsting over balancing work projects and horse time, and feeling guilty...

    Another English major here! I had a horse all through college, retired him shortly after graduating, and bought a prospect in grad school (I love my little mare, but what was I thinking?!). I'm 28...

    You mention that it's a trophy saddle. Is it engraved with the event, year, etc.? That might lower the value a bit (though in my area, trophy saddles are only priced about 15% lower).

    Thanks for all the great replies! At work right now (shhhhh), so I can't write out a detailed response.

    Just wanted to say thank you for the suggestions and ideas, and thanks for the compliments...

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone!

    We went on a brief and easy ride this morning (when it was cooler) and there was no reaching around to bite at the cinch. She did rub her face two or three...
  22. Itching/scratching as evasion technique? (video post #13)

    I've got an itchy horse ... who only seems to get that way when I ride her.

    During about 40 percent of our rides, my mare will stop dead in her tracks and either turn around and scratch at the...

    My older TB did the exact same thing. There was a 3-4 week delay between him blowing out his winter coat and getting his summer coat. The balding started behind his ears then spread to his chest,...

    Yep, driven just like that. I worked on a ranch with 500+ acres, and that's how we brought the horses in each day.

    Five acres is definitely a big space, but my mare catches pretty easily. But...
