    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. If you don't know, I had it explained that its makes the horse think its banged its head. Crack is hitting its...

    Loose Schooling over jumps at 22 months?

    Also described as having lovely floating paces (god hear that all the time, but thats another thread!) and a good scoopy jump, he's probably only doing 1ft6 in the images as he's 11h. Just never even considered putting mine over jumps that young!

    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...

    Rope Halters - fitting?!

    Hi, I've just bought a couple of rope halters, 2 reasons: 1. we're getting into agility and lots of the other members swear by them for doing agility with. 2. I want more control in hand of a couple of the horses in hand than a normal head collar, not wanting to bit them for in hand but not...

    Thank you everyone, is there anything I need equipment wise or just my usual show wear with the tweed jacket? May as well start buying over the summer rather than when winter food bills kick in!

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

    I'd love to give hunting a go, occasionally friends near me go so would go with one of them as I'm nervous (not riding, the whole rules and eticate thing worries me that I'll get it wrong and cause offence!) My horse is meant to have hunted before regularly and she's brilliant ridden in...

    repuatable dealers in the south west / south

    Liz Bradborn had a showjumper for sale at Proper Horses, don't think he's got any TB in him though, but a stunning and very gentle horse. Sorry I don't know much else other than he's a chestnut call George :) I fell in love with him but was out of my price range.
