    I am no trainer, but if you are looking for any extra opinions, this is mine.
    Jumping is simply flat work with obstacles in between. So I would definitely get a solid base in the flat. Then go to...

    I love the way western horses are broke. They are broke to do their job and that is it, not to get entertained by something off the rail or question a riders choice.

    I totally forgot about all these awesome old horse movies. My all time favorites had to be INTERNATIONAL VELVET and MAN FROM SNOWY RIVER. I used to watch those ALL the time.

    Thanks. The shows we go to we don't braid, so I can't get a job from that, and also everyone does their own grooming. Hopefully I can do some mane pulling and clipping though.

    Bought him for low 4 figs. He may not be super fancy now, but when I got him he was refusing cross-rails and dragging me around the ring. Now he can go to a show and do the 3' ponies, the next week...

    I have no idea if this has anything to do with the soundness of the horse, or possibly just the age, but she seemed to definitely prefer the right. When they trotted her she was tracking mostly...

    Definitely work on using the stick at home.
    1) Keeps your pony from tensing up, which can add a considerable amount to their height.
    2) Also if a steward has been standing out in the sun all day,...
