I have been riding for 15 years, I have personally owned 8 horses and I still have my very first horse. I am a 19yo who loves her horses and her camera. Finishing the last bit of highschool to go to college and live my equine dream.

I can't ride for like 6/7/8 weeks because of my foot (ankle injury) but I still want to take care of my horse if I'm able to walk properly again. What can I do except riding?
You can do literally anything lol. Go out and groom your horse, sit in the grass with them and read a book, do some liberty. Anything you want. Just spend time with them.
What are your horses' names and did you name them yourself?
My gelding is named Buckwheat we for him when we was 5mo and I was 5yo, my Grandma named him. My mare is named Amber, I got her two months ago and I did not name her. At first I didn't like her name, then after I got her and we started to bond I realized how much it suited her haha.
I need to decide on a show name for my horse. He is a QH x palomino gelding with the stable name whiskey (doesn't need to relate to his stable name) <3. Do you have ideas?
What is he crossed with? Maybe Sundrop Brisk? Or Golden Boy? Maybe even Golden Wisk? Or Golden Hour!!
What kind of bits are the “good ones”? I know this topic is really wide, but I’m aware they are some kind of bits specially made to be even more gentle than the other ones.
French link snaffles I find are the best/safest for the horse as they don't create the nutcracker affect. And rubber bits are made to be more gentle but I've never used them. Don't use any shanked bit. If you do use a shanked bit, only use a full bar mouth piece as jointed ones can hurt the horse as it allows the bit to move around more in the horses mouth and pinch lots. I dont ride in bits anymore though, I started bitless about a year ago.
