What are some good jumping girths that fit a horse with a wide stomach?
My horse rushes through grids and stops thinking how can I get her to slow down and start thinking?
Try stopping in front of the jumps. Canter towards the jumps as if you would jump it and then halt like, 1-2 metres in front of it. Do it over and over, until your horse gets it. Halting in front of the jump, when your horse rushes it is one of Pro rider Michel Roberts' tricks. It works well with my horses. Also make sure your knees don't cluch the saddle, causing pressure on your horse. That might send him forward. Sit back and keep your hands low, no matter what. And be aware of your breathing. Slow steady breaths. Thats really important! :)
Would you rather go to a super nice , clean barn with good horses and great trainers but not go often because its more expensive or go to an okay barn thats affordable and go more?
i would go to a barn with great trainers, you will make more progress, even if you go less
Which would be better ...thinking of keeping my pony and upgrading to a horse but don't know wheather to go for a 15.2 or go all out and get 16 hh ish as I'm very skinny ...🙂
Doesn't matter what size. Personally , i prefer smaller horses. It matters if they have potential, a soft mouth and intelligence as well as good ground matters and of course if they're healthy.
