When is it to ‘late’ to start riding, or is it even important?
Better late than never x
What’s a good type of bit for a horse who doesn’t stop or turn well?
Waterford full cheek is good for a very strong mare I had, I’d also work on the horses schooling and get them to steer off leg and work on lateral movements such as the leg yield which will help steering and work on the horse listening to your seat and voice for stopping/slowing down
As a student, do your parents ever threaten you about school or quite frankly anything with riding?
My parents aren’t horsey at all, and always said “if the homework’s not done or marks fall the horses go” but once my dad started helping me with the horses he developed a bond and soon realised how difficult it would be and seen that it would only make matters worse x
