    I had thought of that too. She thinks if she is alone, no one is judging her but herself, but she actually is cutting herself off from help that would make her experience soooo much better. Explain...

    The falling isn't surprising. The horse is throwing bucks and she doesn't know how to deal with it. I actually think it is good that she is not afraid of the fall, but it is concerning that she isn't...

    $5-8k, depending on how good he is when he is going good.

    I have seen good riders with small horses and medium/large ponies do quite well in jumpers. They add strides, but make up for it by taking shorter tracks, and since many "lines" are purposely set to...

    The mare is having trouble standing and is underweight and lame. She is going to go down one day and not be able to get up and it will probably be in that horrid stall. The owner doesn't know any...

    Just put fans in my trailer and they do help, especially if, as sometimes happens, you find yourself in stop and go interstate traffic. It's good to know you have a little airflow back there. My...

    First, I agree with the posters above. A 6.5 bit is massive. My massive, big headed 17/almost 17'1 wbxtb only uses a 5.5.

    Second, I think you have a training rather than a bit issue. Your horse...

    If you lived where I live, I'd say a 1/2 ton is fine, provided it is appropriately geared and set up for towing. That is what I have with a similar set up and it's been great. But it can be...

    This is a big 5yo who came from the track. He is probably still growing and learning how to use his body. The fact that he doesn't have a change yet is not at all alarming to me. His owners very...

    It was a little snippy, but I agree with a lot of it f it had been said a little differently. A lot of jumpers don't braid, not just because they are lazy, but because they want to have the option to...

    The only color I'd really have to think twice about would be a palomino. Not sure why, they just don't do it for me. But if I found the right horse and it happened to be one, I'm sure my appreciation...

    We went through a period where mine worked his way through all the airs above ground (must have been a Lipizzaner in another life), the attempted bolt, the bolt and buck, the spook at nothing, the...

    Got my now 6yo as a late 3yo. During year 5 and into year 6 (counting from Jan), I had several conversations with my trainer where I honestly asked her if I was somehow riding so badly that I was...

    Come show against me...we can be correct, but not quite fast enough (but too fast for hunters) together! ;)

    4-8 is a pretty big age range. I feel it bears pointing out that if you haven't brought up a youngun' before, make sure you are ready for the unique challenges of a young horse and have a...

    Raise the fee for running out of grain so it actually hurts. To keep from being left in the position of feeding nothing, tell them that if they out of hay, you will provide one bale of the hay you...

    Yeah, at that level it seems to be who has the pony who will take the biggest joke, jump from the scariest distance and turn off its feet without falling over/breaking its leg. I do NOT like to watch...

    Love the pancake saddles. When I sold mine on eBay (I wasn't going to fit into a 14 inch) , someone asked how I kept my legs in place. I said muscles. Lol! That said, I also like my Stubben which...

    I can feel the breeze in my One K. And they offer both a "normal" shape (whatever that is) and a long oval, which was perfect for accommodating my pony tail without gapping on the side or my head and...

    This! The right way will pay off eventually. At a certain height (and it varies a bit depending on the horse) riders have to stop jockeying and start riding. The ones who don't/can't either won't...

    Sounds like the seat is less the issue than the flap then. I'd focus on figuring out was flap configuration is comfortable and then go from there.

    Have you tried Black Country Saddles? I know a...

    Stubben has about 15 different models at least and fantastic customer service (at least from my experience). You also can get them totally customized. They also have a biomex seat you can get, which...

    When I got my 3yo, I rode him in a sweet iron Western Dee with a simple snaffle (two piece) mouth piece. Not the English Dee, the Western Dee, which has bigger rings. It gave him a lot of stability...

    I have one that I want to change the buttons on to the big brass buttons and maybe add a velvet collar. Haven't done it yet though. :)

    It is a great helmet. You'll love it once you find the right fit. One of the few where when the breeze blows, I can actually feel it through the vents. :)
