    woah i only found this thread too xD
    Since my parents have always owned horses i've grown up around them,
    I used to always be out riding and doing various competitions..
    used to have my own Appaloosa mare called May, sadly i lost interest and she was sold.
    Would love to get back into it again though

    I say this because I'd assume she's fairly out of shape after a year in the field, especially with a bit of added summer weight. I guess it all depends how fit she is! Obviously, take it slower if she's very out of shape, and you can go a bit faster if she's always been fit and athletic.

    I'm also not sure how difficult she is when you say 'hard to ride'...so of course this could play a part in what you're able to do with her

    Good luck!
    Thankyou
    I need need NEED to practice slowly, I end up rushing into things which I shouldn't do. What I meant by she is incredibly hard to ride is she is hard to control and keep at a steady pace, basically she does what she wants.

    If she is really forward and strong, I recommend alot of lateral work in walk, which would also be useful if she's not as fit as she was.
    I know you'll know this, and I don't mean to sound patronising or anything, but with forward horses, it's really good to always ask for bend and ask them to do lots so they listen and keep them occupied so they don't just run out.
    And there's always half haults.
    Also, does she go more forward when you pull on the reins? If so give her a bit more rein (obviously not too much) and sit deep when she goes off on one.
    Sorry again if you've tried all of that, but I just thought I'd say
    How tall is she?
    19 above the neck
    3 below the neck
    2 microdermals

    No probs, I understand how frustrating it is. 14.2 is a lovely size. If I lived near you, I'd ask for a shot!
    Good luck with her though, all the hard work will pay off I'm sure.

    I want a horsey!

    I used to ride but after moving to Bristol for uni it proved too expensive since my earnt money was going on actual real stuff rather than just me...boo...Should be able to start again when I'm earning again and have finished uni. I used to do dressage rather than jumping or cross country...my proudest moment is standing on my head on the back of a horse. My favourite horses to ride are probably cobs, they're so big that they force my leg muscles into being more springy etc but because I'm so tall and large built I can still control them quite well and they're quite docile normally but have a lot of power behind them. When I start up again I probably want to do cross country.

    I used to be phobic of horses but overcome my fear when my best friend got a horse.

    She was loaning a gorrrgeous dark bay welsh cob who was about 14.3hh and I fell in love with him! Plucked up the courage to ride, was led for a while but finally walked alone, he was very fresh one day and had a little bronc around so I lost a lot of confidence. I managed to get back on him and trot a little bit whilst on a lunge line.
    He went back to his owner sadly, but I did ride again! A little grey gelding who was an angry old man.

    I'd ride again. Maybe....
