Which bits like a loose ring snaffle that encourage collection in horses but are stronger do you advise? My horse is evasive in a pelham but loves his snaffle but then acts like he has no breaks in it
A beval could be worth a try, it’s like a loose ring but has a slight elevating effect, or a snaffle with a slow twist.
What is the best stuff to use to remove stains on white patches?
Cowboy magic stain remover
What is your opinion on polo cross? I never played it or watched but I’ve heard so much of people hitting horses with the stick things just from friends and sounds a bit bad
I’ve never competed in it , but from the games I’ve seen I’ve never seen that happen, however it is still a very small and limited sport where I live so that could be why. Like in any sport there will always bee those who are horrible to others when playing. It’s super fun to play at least!
I am an equitation rider, I have a quite young horse and I would kind of like to try her in a pelham, is this a good idea?
If she’s not comfortable in her current bit maybe try a different snaffle before jumping to the pelham. Correct head carriage doesn’t come from the bit but from the horse working correctly through their body
What do you do when it’s really icy in the winter? Do you still ride? My horse always slips so I just don’t ride in the winter that much even though she needs the exercise
If there’s a stable close by which has an indoor you could ask the stable if you can rent and ride in it a few times a week
I just bought custom saddle and I’m debating, what kind of half pad I should buy? I would like something that does not interfere with the movement of my horse.
The acavallo hexa pad with felt is great. My saddle fitter recommended it even though the saddle fits perfect to just absorb shock and give more shoulder freedom.
