  1. Collegiate Parfaire - any one with experience on them?

    I don't own a horse but would like to have a good basic saddle for my lessons. I believe the Parfaire is a close contact saddle and the 17" felt comfortable in the tack store (comfortable seat with a...

    I'm in ReSomething's situation. Taking lessons on horses not my own.

    The horses are very well cared for and the staff does the grooming and tacking/untacking both to make the lessons start on time...

    Its not exactly in Dusseldorf but you can take a river cruise on the Rhine for a daytrip which is quite nice.

    I lived in Cologne when I did it and had a lot of fun. I think we went with this...

    If you've had the ring to yourself during your private lessons, traffic control in a group lesson will be interesting. But if your private lessons have been like mine and in the same ring with 5...

    Thanks everybody. I certainly will check it out. Bummer that the hotels are all booked up.

    I was disappointed not to be able to take Susan's clinic but I couldn't justify the whole weekend it...
  6. Question re: Equine Affaire in Massachusetts

    I was going to take a clinic by Susan Harris but was unable and someone suggested I audit one first. I notice that there are a lot of interesting sounding clinics and demos at this event and the...

    This is one of my pet peeves. When I have a maximum dollar range, I want to filter the list to show only items below my maximum dollar amount- I don't want to see a no-price item with an actual high...

    I learned it first in a group lesson after our group canter session. The horses had gotten a little competitive in the group canter and when the trainer told us to bring them back to the trot and...

    I see your point. Young inexperienced instructors are often full of excitement that can be contagious but the woman I referred to was an older veteran horsewoman who'd basically seen it all from...

    This sounds a little like the chicken and the egg. I can understand how some students are just not as much fun to teach. But a teacher's attitude in the lesson can influence a great deal the amount...

    I've wondered about that with my instructor. I'm an adult re-rider who wasn't really taught well when I started as a teen so I'm motivated to ride well and to listen.

    But sometimes I think to my...

    I pulled out one of my old book by Gincy Self Bucklin, How Your Horse Wants You to Ride. She states she is a Centered Riding Instructor but she has taught hunter jumpers who have showed.

    Yeah I do get loops. Invariably at one point the second rein is looser and has much less contact than the other and that is what I feel is so dangerous. Based on some of the replies here, I think the...

    Shortening Reins

    As a teenager, I was taught to shorten my reins a certain way and right now one of my trainers is telling me its very dangerous.

    I was taught to take the left rein with the right hand between the...

    I've only been riding since October but a couple of things my trainer said have really been helpful.

    The one that stuck with me was: Go to where the horse is and then you can bring him where you...

    I love this tradition; the queen really loves her horses.

    I think the reason many people are insulted when a teacher calls someone is a slow learner is that many times its an excuse for the teacher to stop trying, and then its a cop out for the teacher's...

    I'm in a similar situation with my family. They call me on my home phone which is right beside my bed if they need to wake me up. I get a lot of spam texts so I tell people if its urgent to call not...

    Easy solution: Turn off your text ringtone. Takes two seconds and has a 100% success rate. Talking to her about it will take longer and she may end up not texting and not showing up. Not good from...

    Ah, I think you've hit upon something, dghunter. This woman may have been a tough negotiator.

    Don't worry, nlk. I agree with dghunter. This woman was probably trying to get more out of you....

    I think it's pretty normal to be a quick learner in one thing and a slow learner in another. But just because you are a slow learner doesn't mean you can't learn it.

    Well she did offer a discount - $25 off for two camps or more or $25 off for two siblings or more so it seems a little stupid to ask for more.

    I don't like the premise of bullfighting but I love the movements of this horse. Everything about him is beautiful but his speed in the sidepass is simply amazing. He seemed to go as quickly sideways...

    As a slow study, I think my reaction would depend on the context in which it was said. If a trainer says that, but is still able to re-adjust the game plan so I come out with a breakthrough, I don't...
