  2. New To Western

    hey guys. so i mainly stick to the hunter/jumper/Eq board but i recently started my project horse at school western. I do not have much experience with western. My project horse is and older (23) morgan gelding. he is most comfortable going western, and he enjoys having his head and neck long so i let him. But i would also like to have his head set to a degree too. So how do the western people set their horse's heads? is the bit pressure give and take? or is it constant pressure? Do i sit more or less "on my pockets" of my jeans? Do you go side to side with the horse's jog? or back to front? Help me out guys!! greatly appreciated!! and i will keep updates coming!!

  4. Critque

    hey guys. so i took up the chance to jump one of the horses at my high school (which i graduate from on wednesday!!!) so i was looking for some advice on my position. im aware its not great, and the pictures dont really do it justice. but give me what you can from the pictures. eda--no critiques on the horse as he is not mine. he has done the M&S before, and was a saint for putting up with me.

  7. Helmets

    When i went to Dover to upgrade my helmet i tried on both the IRH and JR8...wasnt a fan of the IRH, they maked me look "bubble headed" and i was trying to avoid that look. I also found the JR8 to be more comfortable. As Smileitlooksgoodonyou said, they are made for wearing your hair down, luckily for me i show morgans, so i wear my hair in a bun anyways. good luck with whichever one you choose.
  8. Barns In Flordia

  10. Half Chaps

    hey guys. so my half chaps are starting to see the last few days. As bad as this sounds, i can't stand not riding in half chaps when i wear jeans. i've borrowed my friends half chaps before and i love them!! they are something by Ariat. we just dont know what. they are leather, zipper up the side, and have a velcro piece that goes over the zipper. i've been trying to find something like that online, but i cant seem to find them. any ideas on good leather half chaps that are worth the money? and will last me a while?
  11. Half Chaps

  15. Hello. I am the one who posted about bringing the horse back to SS. Currently i am working him in his snaffle and a martingale. i would like to work him in a snaffle and draw reins. when do you think would be the appropiate time to switch him over?

  16. Bringing A Horse Back To Ss

    hey guys! I am a senior in high school, and we have horses on campus as part of our Equine class. Every year, the seniors get to pick a project horse to work on something with them. Me loving the Morgan Breed picked one of the morgans. His name is Wild Palm Award. When he was younger, he was a world champion Youth Park Saddle horse. So for my project, i chose to try Saddleseat again with him. so im looking for training ideas and suggesstions!!! Thanks!!
  17. Bringing A Horse Back To Ss

    I mainly ride Hunter, but i rode saddleseat as a kid and ride it on and off so i have the basics, and i have ridden some Hott saddleseat morgans before, and i loved it!! but im more suited to Hunter. but i will keep that in mind!!
  18. Breaking In Tall Boots

    So around November/December, i bought a new pair of Tall Boots as an upgrade from my old (now schooling) ones. I was on a "breaking in" frenzy at first. but then that passed and i've finally started to break them in again. what are your methods, other then riding in them, to break them in?
  19. Breaking In Tall Boots
