    5'7" and my horse is a compact, slightly chubby, 16 hh TB. I think I look fine on him in pictures but too big in videos.

    Don't catch your fall with your hands! A friend of mine broke both her wrists in one fall, broke her collar bone during another about a year later. Still has issues with her wrists. :no:

    I feel guilty that I don't want to deal with my horse, hence the crying.
    It depends on the day whether or not being at the barn is a positive or negative experience. My horse lost a shoe Friday...

    I think the biggest thing is money. I'm in college and my parents care for the horse financially which I am grateful for, but I feel like it is a waste if I don't enjoy it. All I can think about when...

    Don't feel like riding anymore

    Is it so bad to take a break from riding or going to the barn even if I have a horse?

    I'm just gonna leave it at that. I don't know what else to say, but riding stresses me out and it isn't...

    I pretty much always use a simple d-ring snaffle on my horse. I occasionally use a rubber pelham to hack, more practice for myself in using two reins, my horse doesn't care either way. I bought...

    In my experience at small shows, some charge a schooling fee to non-competing horses. You might be exempt from that fee.

    Can't stand this. It looks so tacky, yet lots of people on our little local circuit think it's the coolest thing to break out their shad for the 2'6"-2'9" classic, sans braiding. :no:

    And braiding...

    I love the zippers, no more holding on to your track trunk for dear life while someone else attempts all sorts of Herculean efforts to pull your boots off. Or being on the other side of the...

    If you can coordinate the extra aid, crop behind the leg at approach is a good "command" to install in training over simple jumps even, especially if your GO button isn't the most reliable. I believe...

    The current lease on my horse is pretty simple. The only cost I have is insurance, and there's a clause if the horse is hurt while being handled or ridden by lessee then they will have to pay vet...

    Quarter Horse. Someone asked me what the name on his halter was and I said it was his registered name with the Jockey Club, "oh so he's a Quarter Horse?" Not quite...he's not even stocky, little...

    I'm so glad the Middleburgs are getting good reviews, they seem to be the only non-customs that will be tall enough for me at my price range. I probably won't be showing any time soon so splurging on...

    How much turn out does your horse receive? (hours per day)
    2 hrs/day with a buddy, weather permitting. If it's muddy, the horses don't go out.

    How large is the area? Grass, dirt, etc?
    Small...

    Worst one, I can't even remember the trainer's name, was a dressage private lesson. I was 15 years old and had only had my green horse for a year, and never ridden him with another trainer. Also, I...

    Mid to high four figures? Depends how long she's likely going to stay sound. Definitely get a PPE, perhaps with x-rays. Is she getting any maintenance now? You say she goes up to 3' now, but in a few...

    This has been my policy. I don't have that much tack comparatively, but I got a new bridle that I put a snaffle on, so I use that in lessons to get it broken in enough for showing. The old bridle has...

    Every once in a while, I think being a high school biology teacher would be something I'd enjoy and be good at, but then I read threads and news stories like this. NOPE. Not happening.

    I was/am so independent, my parents didn't even know if I had work. Occasionally I'd ask for help in math, since my mom used to teach college level math, but otherwise, never. Maybe for big projects...

    I wear eyeliner, mascara, and tinted lip balm everyday. I feel like my day hasn't started if I don't go through a full morning routine, make up included.
