Does anyone have any recommendations regarding buying my first pair of tall boots? I'm looking for Feild Boots under 350$, so I'm looking for recommendations :)
Tredsteps are great as long as you're not riding in them 24/7. my friend has them and they started breaking because she rides two horses almost everyday. but they sure are gorgeous!
Is there such thing as being too small for your horse?
well, you could be too small if you can't control the horse because it's too strong for you. if your 4'11, you wouldn't want to get on a 18 hh horse because firstly, it would look weird and most importantly, it would be harder to control it.
If I ride a mare and lover her, but sometimes she does not listen to me, should I ride a gelding instead?
although mares and geldings share many common qualities, they have many differences, mostly in personality. Mares are more willing to grow a connection with the rider but along with that comes sass, especially when they're going through heat. Mares have on and off days, where they might be perfect one day, horrible the next. Try making a connection with her more and spending more time with her. Make her respect you and listen to you. once she understands that you're the leader, your rides will get a lot easier! remember, not every ride will be perfect but make sure to stay positive and eventually you will love riding her!
