  • Re: Trail Manners - Am I overreacting!?

    I've been on quite a few trail rides, some fun ones and some not so good. I learned it was best to: 1) train your horse as much as possible for all contingencies 2) be very particiluar about who I went on a trail ride with because horses running off (crowding, or other behaviors) can get someone hurt. I would always ask the group - and hold back at a walk, usually with another rider/horse, and then we'd canter to catch up. Or if there was a hill and I wanted to gallop to the top, I'd

    First_Time_Rider: please know that I did the same thing, bought a gorgeous and talented APHA mare age 4, untrained. Turned into 4 years of paying trainers to ride her and very little enjoyment for me. I finally decided to sell her and find one I could enjoy. In between selling her, crying alot, and finding a new horse, I took lots of lessons. Started in a teeny tiny round pen! After a few lessons I ventured to a bigger round pen and eventually stepped outside the round pen. Eventually took a short

    Get Jane Savoie's book, It's Not Just About the Ribbons. She walks you through your thought process (fears, etc.) and how to change them. It works! I am living proof.I used to be afraid if my horse moved,now I can handle a spook, or him speeding up or getting excited about something. In between, I enjoy calm steady rides. We've both had lots of time with a wonderful trainer. Maybe you could find someone outside your family to take a few lessons so you build some skills. Knowing you know

    Do what you are comfortable with. Take lessons from an experienced trainer who will not push you, but let you take small steps. Working on the ground is a great way to get confident and comfortable. There are no rules that you have to ride. But hopefully, one day, you will be able to get back on because you miss that. Think about in the future, just getting on and sitting in the saddle. Then walking. And you don't have to think beyond that until you are ready. Been there done that, as many on

  • Sawdust for shavings?

    This is from a sawmill, it's free, but I'm thinking it might be too fine/dusty to use for bedding. This would be for a space under an outdoor shelter (pasture board). ???

  • Re: Embarrassing Horse Show Moments

    My first show on my current horse, a few years ago. When I bought him the owner assured me he was show-ready and experienced at same - she even showed me a picture. Well, we went into a class of @ 15 horses. I could tell he was looking around at all these horses going around at the walk. so thought we would take it easy at first. They asked for a trot, I let him look while the other horses went a round or 2 and thought, ok, he seems calm so let's trot. Not! 2 big bucks up in the rear. ok, so

  • Re: Feedback on cheap paddock boots

    Try Gorilla Tape. It'sa super strong duct type tape. Just don't get it near your skin, or it'll be gone! I use it on my blankets and it stays on even after rain.
