    What is YOUR Stirrup Length for XC?

    While I do understand that when riding xc, you should shorten your stirrups about 2 holes from where you do your flat work. Exactly WHERE does the bottom of YOUR stirrup hit - bottom of ankle bone,...

    I should probably clarify that he doesn't buck or rear - but he does shake his head and maybe crow hop a little. Let's just say that it is enough to frighten me and at my age (58) it's a long fall...
  9. What Do YOU Do If Your Horse Does This? Need Advice Please

    I have my horse of a lifetime - at least in my mind and heart. However, he does have a behavior that does concern me. I've had hi for four years now and he is doing MUCH better, but I am still...

    OMG, I had to look at the original posters name to see if I had written this! It sounds SO MUCH like my situation. Here it is.

    I must add here, too, that winning for me is NOT just about the blue ribbon, but that we did it safely and my horse was sane and calm, and listening to me. That is a perfect score to me.
  12. In all honesty, that is really correct. If I...

    In all honesty, that is really correct. If I don't have time to ride, I shouldn't be showing or have time to be showing. I do need to put in the effort to ride more if this is what I want to do. ...

    I have NOT schooled xc at BN at all. In fact, I have NEVER schooled xc really at ANY level! - all I have done is shows! Of course, they are all schooling shows. I did take my horse down to the...

    Just to be perfectly clear, I trailer in myself, get my horse ready myself, walk the courses myself, warm up myself, i.e, I do everything myself.

    By the way, I am in my upper 50's and have been...

    Unfortunately, there is no one else that is close and this trainer is not close - about 70 miles away from me - one way. Don't get me wrong, I like my trainer, but charging me for day charges when...

    How Many of you "Go It Alone"????

    Specifically, what I mean here is not really ride on a regular basis with a trainer? Maybe take lessons when you want it and from WHO you want them from? Do you go to the shows by yourself or are...

    No one can take better care of your horse(s) than you can! I'm so glad mine are at home. I do miss the riding with fellow friends at the barn, but I can get much more accomplished at home alone!
