If I'm lacking confidence and I've got quite as speedy pony that I know is safe but fast would I benefit from a martingale?
I prefer using the running martingales, but I don't think they will messe fairly slow your pony down if it's taking off with you. Doing a lot of transitions will help!
My friend and I have been talking about starting a business ! We want to have a barn and have horses that work with kids with autism etc. What would be the likely place to start?
I think the best place to start is to find super safe horses to use for your business and go from there!
My mare has a really hard time going down centerline straight. She becomes a worm. I keep even contact on both reins and use my legs to keep her straight. It's like she ignores me. What do you suggest?
Try to push her out in front of your leg before you do anything else, a crop and some spurs can help if she's acting like she doesn't hear your aids. I've found that for horses that won't go straight forward is always the answer.
