As above, a true novice suitable horse shouldnâ€™t dramatically change. Our lead rein welsh a didnâ€™t seem to notice she had been moved! Toddler took her her first hack to visit the heavy farm machinery ( cause 2 year old boys do that!) didnâ€™t bat an eye lid.
If your buying something a bit...
Quite often the trouble is not anxiety per se, but a perceived lack of control.
Saying â€œ donâ€™t worry, itâ€™ll be fine wonâ€™t workâ€ .
If you worry about if you will lose your job and canâ€™t pay the bills, the focus on saving money or training for a new career. The main way to reduce...
Anything that significantly weakens the horses ability to carry a rider comfortably or do the job itâ€™s required for.
I very much dislike huge bodies on spindly legs and tiny feet.
Aesthetically I need them to have a handsome / pretty face ðŸ˜Š
Being able to get decent rider clothing above a size 14.
Not talking like 22+ or anything dramatic, but plenty of ladies have larger chests/hips/thighs which means they need to go up a size. Many of the major brands â€œdesignerâ€ stop at a small made 14!
Whilst the â€œplus size/average...
I love matchy matchy ðŸ˜Š I donâ€™t do designer clothes, so itâ€™s my only fashion expression ðŸ˜‚
I donâ€™t like the word hate, thereâ€™s very few things in the world I hate, I tend to reserve that word for special circumstances.
So I dislike...
The fascination with pulling heads in. Pony...
For the sake of a tenner and my peace of mind Iâ€™d gift her one of these. Might be cheaper than extra bolts.
But I agree, should be stored appropriately for vermin concerns. We recently had to discuss with a person to dispose of a mouldy sack that had burst and spilled everywhere...
Wow you lot are all having a much more exiting time than me! Iâ€™m not riding due to ankle injury. My highlight was going to the tack shop today and wait for it.... only buying what I went in for! ðŸ˜±
Depending on how large your calves are, for the upper end of the spectrum I highly rate fuller fillies leather half chaps. They are very generous so donâ€™t be afraid to go down a size! They are smart enough to be worn off the yard too.
(As you can see I have huge calves!)
Iâ€™m guessing itâ€™s taller than a pony judging by the door.
Young judging by the lack of any muscle. ( or out of work?)
Profile and eyes look welsh, with some huge ears and finer breeding thrown in.
Guessing location is UK. Iâ€™d go with something boring like ISHxwelsh.
Iâ€™ve been contemplating my first winters forage with my welsh A this year. Her hay rations seem sufficient, but I am paranoid about ulcers from them left standing whilst in (limited turnout).
Iâ€™ve found a hay ball, and a bucket of chop has done the trick! She hates the chop, so only...
Try introducing a halt transition on the diagonal, and at any other random areas. So you are half halting then sitting to halt, not canter.
Lots of upwards and downwards transitions till he clicks that sitting isnâ€™t the cue for canter.
I would imagine it varies from horse to horse.
My big guy would duck behind the contact and rush. We learned that The only way out of it was forward. Getting him used to aids being on not always meaning fast. Then once he was forward and in front of the aids, he became strong over his back...
If the young person has sufficiently stable lower leg, outstanding core strength, tact and ability to use the tool for refinement required I have no problem with it.
It took me 20 years of riding coupled with ownership, breaking, training competing and teaching before I felt I was able to use...
