What brand of helmet do you use? I 'm planning on buying another one. Do you have any suggestion? Thanks :)
Additionally, make sure it meets the certifications of your show association if you compete. You can usually find certification information in the description and on a tag inside.
Anyone have any good ideas for gymnastic exercises to do with my horse? I would like to focus on striding 😄
Adjust your stride between ground pole and cavalettis. Dont work your horse over too many jumps while you learn a concept. Find your stride, then work on bigger fences. Size is NOT important when learning to adjust your horse at the lower
I'm used to riding horses that are wide, for my next jumping competition I'm riding a thinner horse which caused me to have problems with stirrups, foot going inside. Any suggestion?
Stop pinching with your knees and adjust your irons so that they lay about a half inch above your ankle bone when you leg is out of the stirrup
Any tips on convincing my parents to get me a horse?
Make a budget. List every single item, your farrier bills, vaccination bills, medicak bills, hauling bills, all of it. Then be patient. It seems like the end of the workd, but it isn't. They simply may not have the spare 5-10k per uear
What would you guys recommend so that I can advance in show jumping? I know my position and ground work are good but my trainer doesn't let me jump a lot. Like once a week
One of the most valuable exercises you can do is adjusting stride (shortening and lengthening between ground poles or two spots in the arena) and having a supple horse what can do lateral work and lead changes with ease.
