    In my personal and professional opinion, you are wasting your money paying a trainer to ride him once a week. If he is getting more rides than that and those are just the training rides then you may...

    I wouldn't use draw reins every day. I have used them in certain circumstances, such as a really big horse that liked to lean on me. We would use them every once in a while and he was so much...

    Yeah, I have been working on proper pace with my sometimes exuberant pony and the weird turns and everything just didn't help the matter. I'm not upset about 2 rails, since she did so well.

    I did Beginner Novice today and the course was definitely weird and out of the ordinary for Fair Hill. Jump 1 to 2 was the same as Novice - Oxer and a vertical at right angles and you are supposed...

    Step 2 - Jump them in that order.

    The above are my main concern. Jumping in general is a bit of an issue, less so in stadium than in cross country. In...

    Very interesting. I wonder if this is how they determine which horses would make better Rejondear horses or other bullfighting type horses.

    I don't find those final statements contradictory at all. Duckz is saying it is a fine course, just not one that she would want to ride all the time.

    Likewise, there are 4 unrecognized venues...

    My trainer is sometimes with me and sometimes not. When I'm first moving up a level, she is great at calming my nerves and is the reason I made it through some shows. She knows I have performance...

    I also suggest prehydrating - start increasing water intake up to a week before the show and drink a good amount in the morning.

    For me, being low on electrolytes is a huge issue, more so than...

    My mare was bad with her feet - her entire life. She would get better with work and was best with me, followed by a barn owner that trimmed her feet for a while. She always needed tranquilizer for...

    Just hopped onto the website to look and they actually have paddock boots in my size. If I knew the size of show boots I needed, I might be tempted to get some (foot should be a 5 1/2, but not sure...

    Your long term goals are compatible with your short term goals, but not exactly with your budget. You may want to consider horses with other "issues".

    As an example, my trainer had a mare for...

    My mare had a fly mask without ears when she was a yearling. She had one with ears last few summers but it was a bit small for her and her extra long ears, causing her ears to seem to fold a bit at...

    My trainer used to only jump cross country on her seasoned horse at shows and jumped one a month or less during the season, maybe once a month during the winter. On a seasoned horse, you don't need...

    There is a certain personality that you need. My mare is 5 but a bit wild. She has bucked on occasion and has a spin spook and sometimes bolt. She is a good kid, though. She is very athletic and...

    I found that even someone who is not a stranger to the horses can disrupt things. Did they wait for the boss to get to the first feed bucket before feeding? Did they start from the opposite end you...
