    You should definitely tell your trainers! They can't help you or train you properly if they do not know all the information. Is it possible you could buy the reins that work for you and switch them...

    The D ring is not to much for the flat classes. We place the same regardless what bit we use. I just feel that my mare is slightly easier to get on the bit in the loose ring than the D-ring. There is...

    I think this is a little harsh. Maybe I worded it incorrectly as well. She doesn't rush the jumps or do anything scary and is in fact very adjustable to the jumps. but I just feel like with the...

    I've tried a Waterford and she just runs through my hands.

    I u der stand a D-ring is more "fashionable" but if my horse likes a loose ring better I would rather her be happy! I don't think my placings have ever reflected I was showing in a less traditional...

    Can't show in a three ring elevator I don't think, and I'm not trying to use two reins if I don't have to. I can hardly manage all my other body parts when I ride, don't wanna disaster trying to use...

    Pattnic that is exactly what I'm looking for...now to see if I can figure out how to order it. The add to cart button doesn't seem to work. Also I'm in the US so I wonder if chipping will be...
  8. Do they make this bit... Loose ring twisted french link??

    My horse goes so much better on the flat in a loose ring French link. But I need a little more Whoa when jumping so I jump in a D ring twisted French link. I sometimes switch to the loose ring when I...

    My farrier swears by turtle wax. Some people around the barn have used it and it seems to work well.
  10. Hunter Derby - correct way to ride certain fences.

    I love doing the Derbies with my horse. They are so much more fun than the regular hunter courses! I am currently competing at "C" shows and a schooling show. However the schooling show seems to have...

    Mine does the same thing. She will lick anything! Shirt, hand, arm, farriers back and neck and even a plastic picnic table at a show once. I learned from the breeder that my mares mother did the same...

    I know it can be annoying. I also have a horse that needs a special grain. I have been lucky in that my BO/Trainer allow me to keep my grain in the feed room. However I also have worked at every barn...

    I clean stalls at my barn and we hardly ever strip a stall completely. We pick the stall and only add a bag or a half bag as needed. We probably put a new bag in once to twice a week depending on how...

    I'm in the "finish the degree" group, then go pro! I agree that maybe you can teach/ride part time. My reasoning behind getting the degree now is a personal story. Although I have never wanted to go...

    Help me decide on new tall boots!

    So I think it's time for new tall boots. Mine are in great condition and would probably say they are not even broken in good. I had them for about 5 years but I have reserved them for shows only and...

    This is mostly a financial decision. However I could "afford" training rides if I needed to. My current situation is that I work 2 weekends a month and get 6 lessons a month. So I could change it to...

    I can't really speak for the scoring but I would say as the others have posted this is one persons opinion on one day! If you are already upset with this you may want to consider Jumpers since it is...

    Thanks for all the replies! It seems that once a week training rides are pretty common! However money is tight so I think we may have to compromise and do once a month training rides.

    MtnDrmz this is exactly the problem and seems to be my horses weakness. I guess I am wanting to learn how to fix this myself. It is one of the things that I am struggling with...getting my horse to...

    541hunter - I absolutely love your last paragraph! I did express to her that this was mainly a financial decision. If I had the funds I would keep her in once a week rides but over the past 6 months...
  22. How often does your horse get training rides?

    Me and my trainer are having a disagreement about my horse getting training rides and I want some other opinions!

    I have had my horse about 3 years (two seperate 6 month periods of injury related...

    I would hate that. My farrier sets up the next appointment day & time before he leaves. On occasion he needs to cancel or come early/late but for the most part it isn't a problem. I couldn't handle...

    I think the difference in the original post is that it is a kid asking for a FREE horse! Most of the above scenarios is that most of us may not have had the upbringing to afford horses but we were...
