... if he gets excited I jump off and he goes back to being ultra calm.




Isn't this just rewarding bad behaviour? He gets excited, you jump off??


Yes which is why my instructor does not let me do it! When Pete gets nervous, excited, worried he likes having someone on the ground he knows to hide behind. I am learning to ride him through it.

I might go and see how he scrubs up, friend is taking her horse, if all going well we will tackle a lead class if not we will go for a walk and just look nice and clean and pretty.

Out of my way, I am in the midst of a hoo haa monologue

Some of those boots are just.... Shocked Shocked

OK, need help.

I am shortly (pun intended) in the market for new boots. Probably will be mtm though as I have such ridiculously short legs.

My last (and first) mtm boots are 27 years old.

These will be for competition.

Suggestions?

Isn't the whole point, that custom made should fit like a glove no matter of style and brand ?!
I tried Secchiari boots at the SPOGA and they all were heaven (not even made to measure !). However, I am way too mean to fork out that much for boots and I am talking wholesale price for the more basic models !! I didn't dare to ask what some of these were Shocked

I know she deals mainly with English saddles and has great access to lots of brands for new saddles. Stock saddles etc I don't think she has a big buying range but checking a saddle would certainly be fine.
Paula has been doing my saddle fitting/ restuffs and adjustments for 6 years (maybe more!!) and always happy with the results.

Troppo. Loco. Round the twist.
Male the gate hard work- small annoying circles at the gate until he starts to look to go somewhere else then take all pressure off when he goes away from the gate. If you try and keep him away from where he wants to be he will just try harder to get there (rear reverse etc) let him go to the gate or wherever he gets stuck but then make that place really annoying where hard work happens once he realises the gate is not a fun place he will look to go somewhere else - let him rest away from the gate take the pressure of as a reward he will soon look for somewhere else to go.

Warwick Schiller has a few vids on youtube on exactly this issue (gate sour etc) usually the horse is trying to go to the gate as that means back to the barn/ back to his friends and no work. The key is to let him go to those places, but them make those places really hard work ( small annoying circles) till he stops looking of the way home and is happy to just be where you ask him to be.

This is the best vid I could find on the free site there is waaaaay more on the subscription very handy.

Lots of good suggestions here. I would also say that if you feel him slowing down, make him halt, if he goes to back up, then make him back up. If it's your decision to do these things it put control back in your hands and should help with your nerves, once he starts to realise that it is no longer his idea, you should be able to get him forward without too much problem.


This is what we did with my young horse when he decided he might like to try this ... you take control of the back up, make them put their head down so they can't brace and move back properly, and then when you're ready push them into forward and in my experience works. Make sure if you're not confident you either get an instructor to help you or do it for you, as you may need to deal with a bit of follow through if your horse doesn't have the best forward. My breaker installed back up ---> forward into my horse at all three paces from day one and it's a life saver, well worth putting in a smooth back up that you can use and then get out of on your own terms.
