These billets were in perfect working order when I bought this saddle in January this year. I don’t know how or why this happened; all I know is that I’m thankful I was taught to be diligent in caring for and checking my tack. The worst splitting is on the hole I use for Magic’s girth. Magic has already launched me once (my fault). I don’t need a repeat because my damn girth fell off!! submitted by /u/sassymcawesomepants [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

As an average guy that rides hunter/jumper, are there any other average guys riding in FL? It seems like most guys magically spawn into the gran prix here in FL… submitted by /u/whoknowsyeye [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Do kids just not like ponies anymore??

I’m an instructor at a riding academy, I teach a lot of children. Especially during the summer, when we have our horse camps. We have a shetland pony, who is probably about 8-9hh. I have to have a conversation about 3 or 4 times each year about how “my kid doesn’t want to ride the tiny pony, they want a taller horse,” or just the kids themselves in general complaining to me or their friends about being assigned to the small pony. Kids in regular weekly lessons do it too. I would have LOVED to ride a mini/shetland when I was little, because hell, I got to ride a freaking pony. If I could ride ..read more

I have this one horse that's been a hard keeper his whole life. He's 8-years-old and has been skinny his whole life. All of my other horses get fat on air, but this one is impossible. He's always gotten about 10ish lbs of alfalfa a day, as well as free choice grass 24/7. Here's what feeds I've tried in the past 8 years: -Triple Crown Complete -Triple Crown Senior Active -Nutrena Pro Force Fuel -Nutrena Pro Force Senior And most recently: -Nutrena Mare and Foal with the max amount of Purina Amplify added (as advised by a nutritionist) I've given all of the above feeds months to work. Literally ..read more

She has no excuse really. I think she is ADHD honestly. She was longed, had bute just in case of pain causing this and turned out and I even did a teeny dose of dorm this time. She is 16 years old. Any ideas. submitted by /u/Hopeful_Ad153 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

What's the old cowboy wisdom/ weird horse belief that you still hang onto?

We're all always learning and that's part of the joy. But no matter how much I learn there are a few ideas that echo in my brain. My grandfather always said to bite treats into chunks to avoid choking, but also to put your scent on the treat so the horse will associate you with something good. And firm pats when you first meet a horse so you don't come off as timid. submitted by /u/monkeysatemybarf [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Hello! I'm a 22 yr old who is about to start graduate school in a new state and wanted to pick up some new hobbies. I've always wanted to ride horses as a kid (but could never afford it) and I would love to start horseback riding! I've gone trail riding a few times and absolutely loved it, and I really want to do it on a regular basis on my terms (e.g., not guided trails). Obviously my only concern is that I don't even know where to start!! So any tips are appreciated (should I sign up for private lessons?) I'd love to hear stories of people around my age learning how to ride and what things ..read more
