    I don't have any problems keeping my butt in the saddle riding any canter. I think my problem is actually that I swing my hips too much to keep my butt in the saddle. I notice that when my coach says...

    There is plenty of shelter, along with lots of buddies to huddle with. I do have a sheet, but it's a show sheet with only one belly strap - it does have leg straps, though. He's not hard on his...

    I've been riding for 14 years, and for the last three or four I've been trying really hard to develop my awareness of what the horse is doing underneath me.

    I don't know if I can do it. I have a...

    I am boarding at my trainer's place. During summers, I work part of my board, but in winter, when hay prices get high, I pay full price. That isn't the only reason I'm staying. There are a variety of...

    Already done! My routine is school, change clothes, barn. When I can't get out, I ask my trainer to lunge him. He doesn't go a day without doing something.

    One of the issues is catching him, which is slowly being resolved in the manner you describe. The other issue is that there are no safe turnout areas at the barn. As soon as the ground thaws and it's...
