  5. Hello, I'm a beginner and the reins always keep sleeping out of my hands and the trainer always has to correct me to shorten them, it happens to me with or without the gloves. Do you have any tips on how to keep them short and the right length at all times? This usually happens when I have a lazier/slower horse and have to whip it more in order to reach more speed to go from trot to canter.

  6. Hello, I have really been into horses all of my life and I'm not really experienced but my friend has horses I was wondering how and what should I ask my friend to get me involved with horses? Thank you

  8. Hi Callie I love your YouTube channel but I have a dilemma. I'm struggling with my rising trot-canter transitions. My instructors are telling me to kick to go up a gait and I'm really struggling with this. My feet have to come way out to get the kick I need and in turn my feet tend to slip through the stirrups. Do you have any hints and tips for me? P.S the horse I normally (and love to) ride at my school is very fast in the canter, how do i slow her down without dropping back to trot. Thanks!

  9. Hey where I ride they use retry race and jumper and rescued horses and one horse I ride is the queen of counter bending making it so canter on the right lead she also has a very fast canter and she leans when she canter making it rely hard to keep balance when i'm cantering her and also makes me worry that i'm hurting her back because i can't keep balance at the canter because she leans so much! if you have Any tip i would be happy to hear them!

  11. Hello. I wanted to ask in what position I should keep my palms. My trainer says I must keep my thumbs up all the time but I see a lot of riders having their thumbs in horizontal position, knuckles up and it really confuses me.

  12. What I find is if I have too loose of s rein the bit bobbles around in his mouth because the rein is bouncing so I basically take up as much contact until the rein is taught enough so that it won't pop him accidentally.

  13. Hi, how do you know when you are ready to start riding by yourself? I have been having lessons at a riding school for a few months now but would like to spend more time riding. How do I know if I am ready to go out trail riding on a friend's horse?

  14. you should make a video on what type of reins to use depending on the horse like if you should use short reins, longs reins or if u should have split reins and neck rein
