At what level/year of your riding did you get your first horse? I have been riding for almost two years, I’m an amateur and I’d like to get a horse to push me to excel in my riding.
Get your own Horse when you know how to look after one. Just because you can ride well doesn’t mean you know how to spot slight lameness or the signs of colic ect.
The USEA calls for FEI to prioritize frangible fence technology, for certain fences on cross-country courses worldwilde. In your opinion, what would it change for the sport (way the horses jump, security...)?
Have you seen how many bloody good eventers have died recently because the rotational falls from solid fences..
How many times have you guys fallen off? And how many years have you been riding? I recently fen off a horse and nearly fractured my hip and this is my 6th fall out of my 10 years
I’ve been riding 3 years, competing at a reasonably high level for one year and I have fallen off about 6 times, 5 of those times were rider error but the 1 that wasn’t was a dirty stop at a fence and in result I am out of the game with a broken neck for a few months.
I haven’t ridden in weeks because I decided to take a break and give my horse some time off. But since the weather has gotten colder I’m afraid he’s gonna act up when I get on
Turnout, lunge, feed a little natural calmer, even if he is playing up on the lunge better that then you sitting on him. He probably won’t hurt himself as they are horses they throw bucks rears ect whilst playing in a field.
Anyone know any breeds of horses that will succeed in the jumper ring?
Any kind of warmblood. I jump a Belgian warmblood, a Lithuanian warmblood and I own a French warmblood. TBs are also great jumping horses depending on the hight you would like to jump. One of my favourite breeds are the Irish sport Horse or Irish draught. Angelo European stud is a great breeding line.
