    A New Way to Fail

    Hi! Ditto to what the others say. Am with Mel regarding the physical reluctance and/or reaction consistently to what is asked if there's a physical problem. As Shane says, you can ask a professional QS horse trainer to have a look at him and train him for a couple of days. We can usually spot whether the horse has a physical problem somewhere and if it will improve through the training that we offer....it usually does .

    Wonderful Tracy! I'm so happy for you, you were glowing yesterday!!! Well done for giving you and Buster the chance to thrive....you've worked really hard for it. Buster looks beautiful for a 30yr old pony!!!
  11. Hi everyone, Based at the QS UK Study Centre, I now offer blocks of horse training in Surrey/ UK. I can help with basic training, like better leading from the ground and trailer loading, through to better impulsion, lateral softness and collection. Please get in touch for more information and/or look at my facebook site for any upcoming events in the UK and other locations in Europe. https://www.facebook.com/CarolaColsonQSHorsemanship/

    Tying a horse up

    Yes...I agree...they should be tied up to something solid. If it's not solid enough I would also wrap it around instead of tying. Great tip from Shane

Les rijden en misschien ook wat dingen bespreken waar ik moeite mee heb in de tijd tot 8 april. Ik hoor het wel.

    Rider / Horse Ratio

    Good question Elise! I personally have also found that sometimes people are choosing a horse/pony from a cultural believe as well. In Holland for example, a lot of people choose to ride big horses because that's what you do when you're an adult. Ponies are seen to be for children. A few of my students thought that they should buy themselves a proper horse, rather than continue with their pony. A horse is only starting at 15.2 hh in Holland as well...everything under that is a pony. Interesting how believe sometimes overrides common sense .
