    I have only ridden a few green horses, but one I was on over the summer was really wiggly. My trainer had me doing what SugarCubes said--ride the shoulder. She pointed out that it's kind of like when...

    Thank you all for your replies! You've given me a lot of food for thought and I'm definitely going to try working on the groundwork in the pasture this week. Taking it very slow, of course.

    I'm not entirely sure, but my instructor was talking about a certain horse's scope compared to another's lack thereof. From what I gathered, the scopier horse was the one who could use his body well...

    I no longer keep a running count of the times I've come off but I think it's somewhere around 7 times in 10 years of riding. The last time I fell--about four weeks ago now--I broke my right wrist....

    Schooling apparel during the summer

    Okay, so this is going to sound like a dumb question, but what do you consider appropriate for riding apparel during the summer? By this I mean, do you personally think it's acceptable to ride in a...

    IMO her demand for a certain sized horse is a little silly, a good horse is a good horse. I wouldn't put them on a 17h beast or anything, but when I was six I started on a 16h quarter horse and got...

    Dubarry Galway Boots--yes or no for winter?

    I'm looking into a good pair of winter boots, and I've come across the Galway as a good option. I like that they could transition from season to season, and I'd just need to add socks. But I had a...

    I have a Charles Owen JR8 for shows. In lessons I go with a cheapie citron green IRH--maybe not the best choice but I can't justify buying a Tipperary just for lessons.
