Tips for a back sore horse? I've gotten her a massage and both saddles fit well, but I'm getting them checked/refitted in the new year (once I have the money for it). Oh, I also use a thinline half pad for every ride

Sounds like you have it pretty covered, routine chiro and massage is always a good idea and you could also look into acupuncture. I'd also ask your chiro if they have any exercises they'd recommend or any specific half pads or if the one you have is good. Other than that just try to ensure they're properly using themselves and be conscious of yourself and your seat in relation to the horse

between thinline, fleeceworks, and total saddle fit, which would you choose for a sheepskin half pad?

If you're set on getting sheepskin, I'd honestly look at Mattes but between those 3 I like Thinline

Hi so I just started a small business and I really need to get my name out there and get some sales. I haven't gotten any sales so far. I got my 4-H leader to mention it in our monthly newsletter back in November and then I have a Instagram account. How can I grow it?

Post in Facebook groups to advertise and just tell people about it on social media

Hi so I am 14 and I am 5'7-5'9. And I'm looking at a 16 hand horse.I wanted to get into eventing or possibly jumpers. Do you think I will be too big for her? I want a horse going to last me till the end of high school. I really want to get a bond with the horse.

No you should be fine besides the width of their barrel is usually more important than the height itself just gauge how you look on the individual horse

Why do some people with their hands up really high when they are riding? Also why do some people keep their hands very far apart? I was always told to keep them close together but I see some people have them like two feet apart just dangling out above the horses shoulder

They're probably using an opening rein with a green horse, lifting to try to encourage them off the forehand, widening and lowering hands hands to get them to relax into the bridle, etc.

Basically just changing how they ride to teach. Don't always assume it's an equitation flaw because training greener horses can't be done the whole time with perfect textbook eq

I went to the barn at 11am this morning and none of the horses had been fed, watered, or had their stalls cleaned. When I first went to the barn my horse was like 100lbs over weight and now you can count her ribs. I'm super angry and I can't move since it's winter and our roads are super icy.. Tips?

Sit down with the barn owner and have a serious talk about your concerns and if they don't change anything then start going and doing things yourself like if she isn't fed then feed her yourself when you're there. That's ridiculous

How can you tell if you have good EQ? Not just flat but jumping too? But I guess asking is how can I tell if a rider is a good rider.

Read up on equitation and why you want to ride that way instead of just looking at people who've been said to have good eq and trying to copy them because eq is absolutely useless unless you're riding that way for its intended purpose which is not just for aesthetics

Im your fan and now I dont want to be rude but in one your video where you were doing dressage, your kneese were like flying in a saddle and that is damn. Dont think I want to make you angry I really love you just wanted to say that.even if you dont answer me hope youll read it :)

I really don't think my knees were flying around and I don't know where you're going with this because if you're going to critique someone, pointing out a flaw with no pointers is completely useless unless your goal is to be a dick

Funny I ride racehorses as well, and know many trainers who can handle their hot, upright racehorses. without beating them damn some people just don't have enough common sense.

What do you consider a advanced rider? When is a horse considered Green? And how do you know when they're not green anymore?

Advanced riders should be capable of training and riding different types of horses and be able to handle basically all situations on their own

What's your horse (or the horse you ride) like to ride?

Milo is really soft mouthed and forward moving with a big canter and is easily distracted so getting him to focus can be hard

Jill Treece
