  1. Poll: Never ridden in a Voltaire, but I love my CWD....

    Never ridden in a Voltaire, but I love my CWD. It's so comfortable, it fits most horses I put it on, and I think it's spectacular looking. I know tack only plays a small role in riding, but I feel it...

    My HDR was serviceable while I owned it. It fit a variety of horses, which was nice, but it didn't really fit me and I was never too attached to it. I found a really well priced Crosby after owning...

    Of course!

    From what I gather, it's a fine line between looking down vs focusing on a point (ie the glove) and then moving your eye line up past the pole or fence and having your horse jump up...

    I was reading articles on Practical Horseman and came across this one: See the Jump, See the Distance. Click through the sequence of photos for Erynn's suggestions. It might not be of much help for...

    I'm not a conformation whiz, but I'd peg him for a strong hunter prospect. Obviously maturing, time, training, and muscling will benefit him greatly. A strong component of judging a hunter is their...

    I'll give you a few trainers from BC. I haven't ever ridden or had much experience with Albertan trainers, so I can't recommend any in that regard.

    Georgann Gregory has a great rep. An old friend...

    If you feel you can't go without a trainer, I'm going to side with your DH here and say don't go. It's not fair for her to put this sort of pressure on you and in my opinion, it's pretty immature....

    You might have to get in touch with them directly if you can't find it anywhere online.

    It is odd that the place you board at doesn't have rules about people coming on the grounds. Unless her boyfriend has a reason to be there without her, I don't think he should be permitted to hang...

    I try to count, even though I've been riding for quite awhile and that's sometimes thought of as a more novice approach to jumping. It helps me make sure I'm on pace, and I do have a relatively good...

    I think two weeks is jumping the gun a bit. Realistically, that's not that long for a wound that involves muscle damage to heal. I'd understand the concern if he was still not weight-bearing closer...

    The other posters have made good points. Also, did you always plan to be there for three weeks? Or has that been a decision made now that the trainer wants to show the horse, too? Are your six days...

    What sort of genius...

    She definitely needs to go.

    If it's more cost effective for you to just haul your horse yourself, just do that. You have your own rig now, and you can take it at your discretion. She can haul on her own if she doesn't want a...

    Second opinion?

    I know I post asking for quite a bit of assistance, haha! However, I don't have much of a horse-y support circle, so my questions and chit-chat are directed here :lol:

    I'd like a second opinion on...

    A few years ago (almost a decade, sheesh!) I was hunting around for a new horse on a limited budget. Originally my parents and I had become quite infatuated with a horse I had been looking at as a...

    Pushy horses, if they get treats, get them in their feed bucket. Occasionally, I'll hand feed a horse, but even the ones who're good usually just get them in the bucket.

    I honestly don't know the last time I rode in a deeper seat saddle. It's got to be close to a decade now, because once I got my first saddle (an Ian Millar Collegiate) when I was twelve I just stuck...

    I've had small stints (a couple of years at most) where I gave up riding. It did take quite a toll on me mentally and emotionally not to be around or riding horses. Right now, I'm riding a couple of...

    Not sure, I've never thought to ask. However, I'd peg it somewhere in the $650 (+/-) range given the amenities and location.

    Thanks for the reply, nashfad. I agree, good barn help should...

    I should've been more clear. I ride a horse owned by someone at the barn, I don't have my own (though I wish I did!). The BO previously did that exchange with their former farm sitter, which is why...
