    Yes we are working on it on the flat. I know that it will take a long time to fix straightness issues. (I am actually a dressage/event rider so I do love dressage and know how long it can take to...

    I'm a firm believer in leaving babies alone. Teach them the basics of tying and leading and then leave them alone!
    I have started lots of horses under saddle and was a working student for a NZ...
  3. Improving technique: straightness and forearm

    I bought a new horse a couple of weeks ago. I'm looking for some exercises to target her issues and improve her jumping technique.
    she drifts right quite badly. It is not so apparent over single...

    This is exactly my horse.
    we are moving up to training and I am a little worried about the first few fences since they're not so little now and harder to slither over. We have only done two events...

    Herd bound herd

    I keep my horses on 5 acres. In the past we've had lots of horses coming and going with no problems of herd boundness. In recent years, the old TB mare has gone a bit crazy in her old age and has...

    A friend of mine was there watching and took some photos of Adelinde Cornelisse's ride and posted them to her FB. I don't think Adelinde's lateness to the arena is what should be being discussed -...

    I usually jump 1x per week. I mostly ride dressage and hack out.

    Canadians - Logistics of eventing in the US?

    I am thinking about going to Aspen Farms in September but have never evented in the US. Sounds like you have to be registered with the USEA and the horse does as well. But what about passports? Do...

    I have Premier Equine (PEI) and they are the best XC boots I have ever come across. Super, super light weight but also very secure and sturdy. They have vents in the front so the leg stays nice and...

    Sounds like he doesn't understand what the bit means. He isn't actually sensitive in the sense that he needs a super soft bit because he listens so well - instead he doesn't actually listen properly...

    GoPro - Tips on Adjusting

    Question for you GoPro users: how do you adjust your camera to ensure that the field of view is ideal? I have had a GoPro for a while now but haven't figured out how to nail it every time....

    I like the idea of a stretchy, comfortable coat. I generally think it's about time we rid the world of the ludicrous, elitist, and utterly out dated horse show fashions once and for all. But, that...

    My horse doesn't need much warm up. We just debuted at 2nd level and I walked into warm up 10 min before my test. My theory is that if it isn't trained and obedient by show day you certainly aren't...

    I ride in an old Passier that offers minimal help. Since getting it a few months ago my equitation has improved a lot but I still have a long way to go.
    I hate thigh blocks and deep seats: I feel so...

    So you score better for doing the transition at the letter rather than between letters even if it says "between M and C" on the test? Good to know.

    What about sitting the trot? Since most people post the trot at training level (especially in eventing) is it better to sit (because it just looks better) or to post (for fear of riding him too...
  17. Riding an easy eventing test on a 2nd/3rd level horse?

    My horse and I have our first recognized event debut in two weeks. We are going pre-training which is roughly equivalent to novice in the US if any of you dressage-ies know about eventing levels. The...

    I am having this exact same problem.
    I also have a Passier GG that fits my high-withered, super short-backed TB cross. I can't believe you've found a Collegiate to fit - I would never have guessed...

    I am sick to my stomach reading this thread. It continues to disgust me that there is so much money in the horse world that horses are treated like robots rather than living things.

    The two positions are COMPLETELY different so it's no wonder you (like all of us) struggle with it! I also rode H/J for a long time before also starting dressage (now I event). I got lessons for a...

    I call my horse primarily a dressage horse (2nd/3rd) but we jump and event too.
    So weekly hacking. Weekly jumping. And I also do bridleless and I love to clicker train with him. I find clicker...

    That's great. There is no reason why a TB should not be able to compete at that level (and much higher) if trained correctly. Unfortunately most of the emphasis these days in the dressage world is on...

    The haunches should never be moved to straighten the horse, anyway. We straighten the horse with the front legs and the hind legs follow. Horses do not think with their haunches - hind legs are...

    PS: Bad rides TOTALLY affect me. I beat myself up like crazy after having a bad ride and get very depressed. If I am in a longer term funk with my horse it really bothers me. A few months ago I went...

    I go though funks as well.
    Although mine do not spring from a lack of confidence but more the opposite: I am such a perfectionist that sometimes I latch onto something that I want to fix and drill...
