    I don't have much to add, but I agree that you need a trainer. You've never had proper riding lessons, and you have a green horse…that's an accident waiting to happen. If your dad knows horses and...

    Poor girl who can't afford lessons has to do chores in order to train with old, grumpy trainer and pinto horse…then suddenly, when the show comes - she owns a $400 GPA helmet!

    That was really cool, even though I live in Seattle and am a Seahawks fan! ;) I do remember noticing the horse before the Super Bowl kickoff and thinking about how fun it would to ride out leading...

    In case anyone was wondering- the gelding I'm currently riding has the show name "St. Nicholas". Everyone calls him Nick or Nicki…and he's a Thoroughbred. I love how his name is kind of...

    Show names

    I love hearing different show names, so if your horse has one, what is it? :) And does your horse's barn name 'match' it's show name?

    Go for it! :yes: If she wants to and her parents will let her, let them show! Showing at WEF is an awesome experience and lots of people would die to show there… Looking back on the decision in the...

    I'm having the same problem! It's because I pinch with my knees - my heels are usually still down but the pinching/gripping causes my stirrups to either slip back "home", or off the toe of my foot....

    This is so horrible! :( I can't believe how many horse were lost in the fire...RIP. I wonder what the cause was- for it to have burned everything to the ground.

    I loved the part about checking on the horses and finding them snoring and curled up into little horse-balls! ;) It made me smile.

    I'd say use the loose-ring, and stick with what he's used to. Technically most snaffles are fine to use in USEF-sanctioned classes, and this being a local show I bet nobody will even notice! And yes,...

    I'm the only one! :yes: I'm pretty sure no one I'm related to even remotely likes horses…

    That sounds so fun! I would totally go if I lived in the area…

    www.dreamhorse.com :) I think it's one of the most popular horse selling/ad sites, and I check it all the time, just for fun! But anyways if you have a trainer or barn friends, you could ask them to...

    Splitting sounds very reasonable, IMHO. If she were to take her horse, she'd be paying full price for everything, so she's getting a good deal. Plus you're being a nice person even letting her...

    I've seen light blue on gray and red on chestnut, and personally, I love the little pop of color! It's one of the few ways it's acceptable to bring some fun colors into the hunter ring - nothing too...

    I don't own a trailer myself, but my friend has a two-horse slant which doesn't have a butt bar/chain for the rear horse. I don't know if this changes things, but their trailer doesn't have a ramp,...

    For saddles, I've always been a fan of M. Toulouse, and if you'd prefer the cost to be in the three-digits HDRs are a good starter saddle. :) Check smartpakequine.com for more options, they have...

    I usually bookmark potential trainwrecks so I can read them later when I have nothing else to do… :rolleyes: I find that they're much more fun to read in front of the fire with a bowl of snacks!

    Help me sit the canter

    So I used to ride hunter/jumper and now I'm riding with a more classical trainer, who prefers a different riding style. When I jumped I would "post" or kind of float the canter like many other...

    Thanks! And I'm not saying I don't know how to do any of the mentioned skills, I'm just saying which ones will I most likely need to know before leasing. And if I already know how to do them, great....
