    What do I need/need to know/do to get into hunting?

    Thank you :) and everyone above. Dreading being asked to shut gates, she wont stand if others are cantering off...or even walking off....also I have poor wrists so shutting some gates can be a b***. lol. Is just general hacking, local show jumping etc. enough for fitness or do I need to step...

    Can rearing be "cured"?

    On and when one of my horses did it out of excitement a simple deep toned NO and a tap on her shoulder with my whip sorted her out and she knew 100% it was unacceptable and she hasn't done it since. She's so willing to please though she doesn't like being told off so is far simpler than a...

    Can rearing be "cured"?

    Excellent you've done the first thought of back, teeth and saddle :) as for curing it....I used to laugh at the "egg" comments thinking people were taking the mick, but it has logic.

    Loose Schooling over jumps at 22 months?

    This isn't exactly going to be a show jumper though...I doubt. Its a native kids pony type. I guess it may have been just for photo purposes but still, I have a 3 year old and have no idea how he'll do jumping other than seeing him clear a gate in the field in tort and thinking "holly...

    Loose Schooling over jumps at 22 months?

    I was always taught not to start jumping until 5 years at the earliest, but I know many respected trainers in my areas start at 4 years and have been very successful doing it. However I noticed just now a 22 month old pony being loose schooled over a jump....is this normal?!

    Going alone issues!

    I have a lovely youngster, he's been a joy to back and hacks out beautifully with others (is even better behaved at times!) However we're struggling to get over the hurdle of hacking out alone. We're currently doing a mix of in hand walks up our long driveway if I'm alone, or I'll ride him up...

    Rope Halters - fitting?!

    Thank you, probably such simple questions, but with absolutely NO idea having never used them, I wanted to ask rather than rely on google. Hopefully it'll work wonders with the youngster in hand. He's big and starting to get a bit bulshy and try his luck. Fingers crossed I'll get my gentle giant...
