How can I build up my horse's top line as well as build up some more muscle in myself?
"For the horse you can try lunging or riding with side reigns. I wouldn't recommend always doing this but one or two times a week will help build the top line. And for you just basic stretches or a basic work or routine. Crunches, push-ups, planks, holding your legs off the ground with your back and but flat to the ground, ect. "
I’m just beginning to jump, the horse I’m learning on is constantly trying to avoid the jump. Is there some sort of technique I can try to build his confidence over the jumps?
"Just to add on to the comment on small jumps. The jumps should be small enough for your horse to walk over. So if you need to have your horse take it at a walk. Then build up. Don't rush yourself, and if your horse rufuses first try to push him to walk over it and if not successful circle and try again "
My Warmblood has bumps on his back. They are quite hard & seem to develop under his skin. One or two have come to the surface & are hard. Does anyone know what they are?
"Could be fly bites Benadryl also helps those"
Hey horse people how much does a horse eat grain
"If the horse doesn't have constant access to grass then in my experience they get grain twice a day. (Along with their hay) as for HOW MUCH to give the horse, that will depend on the horses metabolism, work schedule, and type of grain. I would recommend to consult your vet to determine a healthy diet for your horse. The diet can sometimes be determined by trial and error. But it's better to follow the recommended amount by the grain company and then change the diet accordingly. "
How on earth do you do no stirrups in a slippy saddle? I can’t even rise 😂
"Maybe start wearing breaches? Is it your saddle? If so you could probably get some type of gripping pad/ fabric just put on right where your legs go?"
What to do to reduce the pressure on the knee when riding?
"Prettend like your stirrups are not there. Don't put pressure on your feet at all. I think like my feet are sitting on clouds that they lightly touch but can't actually put pressure on. Do more posting trot without stirrups and it will make things better for when you ride with stirrups. Do this and there shouldn't be pressure on your knees. I have knee problems so I really worked to get this down pretty quikly"
