  1. Could I get a crash course in dressage bloodlines?

    I'm interested in following the trends in young stock for dressage, regardless of breed, but don't know much about breeding. Could someone educate me a bit on breed trends, popular stallions and...
  2. Poll: Would you use a "Training Log" - App for iPhone/Droid/iPad?

    If an app were to be developed that acted as a comprensive log for your riding, would you use it? More and more people are now using smartphones to organize and document their lives, so why not apply...

  5. What does my stirrup preference say about my equitation?

    I've ridden in both fillis irons and HS 4 way stirrups this past week. I've been riding with fillis irons for at least 6 months and found that I was exhausted after any ride in a close contact saddle...

    Could riding be giving me shin splints?

    I've noticed that when I go to jump or just ride in a jumping saddle, I'm keeping my stirrups very long, as when I close my hip/knee/ankle angles my shins start to hurt and simply holding this tight...

    I think it could be a combination of stirrups and approach. My stirrups are probably a hole or two long and my legs might be swinging at the canter as a result.

    However, the problem jump this week...
  8. My horse jumps me out of the tack way too often - how do I fix this?

    I've never had this happen with any other horse, but this one in particular has a powerful jump, and every time the jump is higher than 2'3" I get launched out of my position.

    I used to be a...

    Riders taller than 6'4"

    Are there any famous hunter riders/show jumpers who are at least 6'4"-6'6"? How tall are their horses?

    I tried consulting google but no one seems to care about rider height.

    I'm trying to get a...
  11. Eq on the flat - should your bum ever leave the saddle at the canter?

    I've switched over to eventing and as a result have more of a dressage seat, which follows the horse's movement from within the tack, rather than lifting off the horse's back like many do in the...

    It was a schooling Combined Training show - they probably didn't have time to change out of their dressage full seats between classes.

    Yes, simply because I want to make sure that if I'm spending money on horsey equipment that I take the absolute best care of it. ;) I definitely want all of my stuff to last.

    The mechanics of a dressage whip's lash

    I just bought a new nylon Fleck dressage whip. I love the length and snappiness, but the only thing I do not like is the fact that you cannot replace the lash if it becomes too frayed.

    I am...

    #&@^ I knew ballet was thwarting my riding efforts somehow. All you learn is to turnout your entire leg including the foot so that when you squat the whole leg points out.

    Bah!

    Thanks Ibex

    Does it become more natural after a while? It's not so much that I can't do it - I just have to actively make myself do it.
