Is it better to wait and look for a horse that you bond with? Asking because I haven’t really got on with my new horse as in relationship wise:)
All bonds are formed with the same foundation: trust. You said your horse is new, meaning that you've had it for a short period of time. It takes months to years to develop strong bonds. A lot of trust and time must be shared on both sides of the relationship. To improve your bond, numerous things could help such as groundwork, riding, grooming time, playing with your horse, trail rides, and more. Doing these things regularly will help you bond with your horse. Hope this could help! Best of luck to you!
My friend has a saddle that is more comfortable for me than my horses saddle, the nice one digs into his withers a little because it is a bit narrow. Is there something i can do?
As horrid as this sounds, you're going to need a new saddle. Selling the saddle on tack sites, eBay, etc. can get you some money for the new one. Ask your friend the size/brand of the saddle and try purchasing one similar or the same.
How do you guys clean your brushes? Any tips to get all the dust/dirt out?
For most brushes, simply soaking them in some hot, soapy water will do the trick. After that, rinse them off and allow them to air dry. Merely taking a brush to a wall or fence post will help shed some of the dirt and dust. For mane and tail combs I would recommend simply removing any hair. Hope this helped!
What are y’alls favorite, affordable, breeches?
I personally love shopping for riding pants on sites like Amazon or OfferUp! Not only are they affordable, but they are also very durable(depending on what company you choose to buy from). I buy Kerrits riding pants as they fit well and are generally cheaper.
I'm trying to improve my posting trot any ideas on how?
Trotting around in jumping position can help strengthen those muscles and get your heel down. This is a good start. Next, I recommend sitting the trot. Finally, posting. You don't want to stand straight up or post on your toe. You're going to want to rock your hips forward in rhythm to the horse's movements while still rising in and out of the saddle. Make sure you're still over your horse's center of gravity! Hope this could help! Good luck!
