I ride English and Western;I'm still learning and still learning to jump. I hope to lease Cochise soon💚
How would I relax quickly at a new yard? I’m having a job trial at a yard with high level KWPN dressage horses and I’m really nervous as to how people are going to think of me there
Also, just get to know a few people who are nice. It’s good to talk and have sort of an inner circle where you’re comfortable, especially if you feel uncomfortable or need someone to talk to
Do you prefer mares or geldings and why? Just wondering 😋
Personally, I prefer geldings. They all have different personalities. Mates are too stubborn and pushy tbh. But some geldings are the same way. The gelding I used to ride wasn’t pushy but normally stubborn. He was a speed demon. He didn’t care to be pet unless he was itchy. So it depends on the horse, but I definitely think geldings fit me better.
Do you have any tips to canter a horse who hadn't for a while? I haven’t cantered my pony in a while and I’m nervous to canter her
*when I say don’t pull the reins, just use body language and aids, the rein aid would be half halts or completely transitioning down.
How do you guys like to do your trot to canter transitions and do you have personal preferences of techniques, cues, etc.?
