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"
I'm trying to improve my posting trot any ideas on how?
"This is what I did and it worked for me so feel free to try. start trying to keep your feet barely touching your stirrups and post by using the muscles in your thighs and core. By doing this I went from not placing at all in equitation to a nice 2nd place in 2 months. Your legs will be really sore probably and it might bother your back at first if you have back problems but after the muscle is there you will feel like you could post correctly all day :)"
