It is probably the most ridden shape for most riders, the trusty circle. And yet, a lot of circles are uninteresting, uninspiring, and (if we're being completely honest here) a total waste of time for you and your horse. When ridden with a little intention and purpose, the trusty circle can become one of the greatest ways to develop your horse and …
 
Tinia Creamer and Suzanna Johnson talk about some of the biggest hoof issues they see in surrendered and seized horses that come into Heart of Phoenix Equine Rescue. They discuss issues such as neglect ("Lack of Farrier" Disease), laminitis, nutrition, grazing safety, and the positive aspects of adopting through a rescue. For more info, see: HoP Eq…
 
What does your average ride or training session with your horse look like? Do you have a riding routine that you follow? If yours is leaning towards, or if it already is, a little too predictable; maybe it's time for a change? While riding the same sequence often can sometimes be beneficial to your riding and training (more on that later), for the …
 
What goes up, must come down. For every upward transition you ride with your horse, you will follow it, at some point, with a downward transition. For many riders, these can prove a little more complex to balance. Having to prepare and then guide both yourself and your horse 'downwards', while continuing to maintain forwardness, tension, and energy…
 
Deanna Preis talks about how proper riding and training can influence soundness and hoof health in both a positive or negative way. She also discusses resources such as Straightness Training and her own farm, ShadeTree Stables, to help assess whether your horse is moving properly or not. For more info, see www.facebook.com/ShadeTreeStables/…
 
How well do you ride upward transitions? For many riders, it can feel a little frustrating and ironic how many of them are anything but 'upward' as far as energy and lightness go! In fact, sometimes they can feel quite the opposite, flat. Upward transitions are part and parcel of every single ride you do with your horse. From the 'halt to walk' one…
 
Many riders have a desire to school and develop their own horse. Yet, a lot of these riders don't actually know what horse riding skills they need in order to make this a reality. The fact of the matter is that you are always training your horse. Every single interaction. Through your actions, intentional or not, you are always communicating to you…
 
What would happen to your riding if you began to put a little more effort and intention into each warm up? Many riders are literally setting a timer for each warm up. 5 minutes of walking, followed by some trotting and maybe a canter or three... Your warm up is a way to set the tone of the whole conversation with your horse. Whether that is a groun…

There is an energy that we experience when we are out on the trail with our horses. It can feel like an added enthusiasm from both horse and rider. And, maybe, blended with the thought of unlimited possibilities. Whatever the reason for it, as riders we can begin to use this energy to develop our horse's training and our own riding skills. Things t…
 
Not having a designated space to ride in, like an arena, can often feel like a big disadvantage. If you have been riding in an open field or been confined to roads for any length of time, you'll probably know what I mean! However, while an arena does help with some aspects of riding, having no arena will also force you to think outside of the box. …
 
Dr. Alicia Nolfi discusses laminitis treatment and the reasoning behind various treatments that are used for laminitic horses. She also talks about the importance of taking note of hoof health and laminae health as part of preventive care for the horse, and not simply reacting in triage. Dr. Nolfi discusses radiographs, venograms, mechanics, and th…
 
Do you want to improve your riding skills, and yet finding more time to spend in the saddle feels an impossible task right now. More time in the saddle means an even more 'busy' schedule! Or, perhaps, you're experiencing the other side of this coin; you're riding all of the hours, but you're not actually seeing any improvement? It is important to r…
 
It's a big question, and it's a question that so many riders wonder about. "Can I train my horse, alone?". For many riders, they will answer this question with another one; "An I a 'good enough' rider?". There are millions of riders all over the world, all with different combinations of skills and talents; being a 'good' rider is relative! However,…
 
PHCP mentors and board members Leslie Carrig, Jeannean Mercuri, Christina Krueger, and Maia Chaput chat about various topics in hoofcare education. The discussion starts with ways owners can feel empowered in choosing a hoofcare provider they feel comfortable with, and continues to various education opportunities and the benefits of being in a hoof…
 
For many riders, collection can feel like an exotic and luxury destination that they can only dream about visiting. It can feel very much outside the realms of possibility when they consider their riding abilities and their horse's abilities as well. Now, the flip side of this is that there are also a smaller group of riders who feel entitled to go…
 
When I was first starting out as a rider, I thought that straightness was a simple and easy concept. I remember the first time someone told me that one of the hardest things to do on a horse was to ride a straight line. I didn't believe them! However, turns out they might just have been right... Keep in mind that whenever you are working on the low…
 
How do you know if you have actually achieved true impulsion? What makes this 'real' impulsion different from simply running around the arena like the energizer bunny with your horse? What is impulsion? Impulsion is the harnessing of the energy that your horse creates and that is inside of the 'container' that you and your horse create when working…

Contact and connection; hot topics for many riders. This is often because they can feel quite elusive. There is confusion regarding what needs to happen in order for contact to occur. And, how can you tell if the contact is correct and 'good'? What is Contact? This is a big question because many riders feel a lot of confusion around contact. And th…
 
What if I was to say that suppleness is less about being 'bendy' and more about how energy flows in you and your horse... Would that challenge you a little? Or is this something which, if you think of yoga, makes sense? If you sometimes struggle to maintain that lovely 'loosey gooseyness' in your horse, is it possible that you have been making it m…
 
Rhythm is often a funny thing when riding. The reason for this is that rhythm, in the true sense of the word, is any beat that is on repeat... And, most horses tend to have a beat or two that they repeat. This leads many riders to struggle with rhythm. Their question is "if there already is a rhythm, why is it something to work and develop?". And t…
 
It can feel really overwhelming when we begin looking at all the different things you need to include when training your horse, right?
