Agree with LHS it doesnt ring true at all to me. But if you did take him on then hacking is excellent to build - you can school whilst out on a hack and i usually get better results than in the school! Ask him to work in an outline (working forward in an outline not pulled in) try some leg...
Just a query - when i rode bsja as a junior i had a 148 pony until i was 16 years old. Now i ride as a senior on a 16'3 horse. Are the rules literally that under 16s ride 148s and under and after the age of 16 you move into horses over 148cm?
I wondered if ever an under 16 year old can ever...
Hi if your going for the whole spectrum of shows i would go for white/cream jods/ long leather boots / shirt with stock and pin. Show jacket and hat. I would try and match the hat with the jacket ie blue and blue or black and black. Also gloves & hairnet.
Try spiralling in and out on circles in walk and trot.
Shoulders in/ out.
Transitions (meaningful forward ones!)
Serpentine 5 loops with changes from walk to trot in different places.
If i think of any more i will let you know.
Hi - My friends Husky escaped last night and they are beside themselves trying to find her - she is a 5 year old grey/white siberian husky - please please contact me if anyone hears anything - many thanks x
I dont know 100% but trailers give recommended heights not compulsory limits - im sure ther arent any laws or stipulations stating you cant carry a horse 1 inch higher on the withers. My 16'1 horse is bigger overall other than withers than my 16'3 so it would be open to so much controversy if...
Okay so i listed a top to sell - plenty of pics etc then i immediately get an email saying can i see a pic of the shoulders/neck & face - so i sent a clear one up the neck and they now they are asking to see the face - WTF!!! im not selling myself just the top the bloomin freaks!
Absolutely ridiculous - at my last yard one of the mums was holding her 2 year old on her lap (no hat on) whilst she rode and popped over a jump that was in the middle of the arena - i couldnt believe my eyes.
My gelding plays for hours. If a horse even dares to go up to my mare though she will charge and attack it - she is a typical stroppy chestnut mare. If i ever saw her even run up the field in excitement i would be amazed - she is the laziest moody mare i have ever met. Even if i walk past a...
Its good to have a goal - i found when i first went bd i was doing nov & elem unaff and getting high 60s and even early 70s then when i went bd the level of competition was so much higher that my scores dropped by about 5- 8% on average which was still respectable but i realised doing unaffs...
I suppose that with dressage its all about the 'show' so the turnout of the rider and horse affects the overall asthetic view of the dessage test. Whereas when you watch showjumping its more about action so people care a ittle less about the turnout?
Just a guess.
Mine is an auto diesel and i agree - very thirsty but i cant compare to others as ive never had another 4x4 - my sister has the terrano and she hates it with a passion but thats because alots gone wrong with it lately. But i will say the jep is quite luxurious with alot of jazzy extras which i like.
I have a jeep cherokee and tow an ifor williams 510 with 2 large horses on with no probs whatsoever - its a lovely car - but expensive to maintain - when bits and bobs go wrong it has cost a small fortune. Other than that lovely to drive and tow with.
