yeah It depends on their style of riding. If you watch international show jumping competitions you will see that some riders (usually German) ride in the back of the saddle. I'm not saying that's right but it does work for some people.

No matter what aspect of riding you do or what level you ride at you should always be in the correct centered position in your saddle. You do not sit farther back the higher level you ride at. Be more specific as to what style you are talking about.

No, I would recommend something a lot quieter. TBs are generally considered to be rather high strung...I would suggest a stock horse or a small riding pony.

It is important that a rider of any age wear their helmet any time they are on a horse: If your horse is participating in rigorous demanding work, he should have: Riding gloves can: When riding, the best footwear you can use is: Why do western boots have high heels? The bit was developed before the noseband: What is a Peacock Stirrup? When mounting your horse in an active arena with other riders, you should:

It all depends on what you want to do, if you want to show you would want a trained show horse, if you just want a riding horse, get one who has a nice temperment and is suitable for your level of riding experience. If you just want to ride a couple times a week, don't get a high energy horse who needs lots of training and attention.

This can depend on what type of hat you are referring to. If you mean the safety 'hat' that is called a helmet or skull cap. If you mean the hat high level dressage riders where that's a top hat, and if you mean the rounded hat that saddleseat riders wear, that's called a derby (pronounced Darby). And of course western riders wear cowboy hats.

they can be all diffrent heights it depends on how good the rider is.

Over long distances, it is better for the horse's back if you can do a rising (or posting) trot, standing and sitting with every alternate beat of the horse's hooves. In high level dressage tests, riders sit to the trot, and this is done before canter transitions in general English riding.

Saddle seat is a type of English riding that involves a high-stepping horse, and the rider has his/her legs farther out in front than in most English saddles. Western is a type of riding where the saddle has a horn, and is deeper and more secure than an English saddle. Western riders do not jump.

This will depend upon what type of horse you want, and what market you are in. A general riding horse with unremarkable breeding can be anywhere from $1000 to $4000 in the United States. However, a well-bred and well-trained high-level competition horse, such as show-level jumper, can cost over $250,000. There are also racing horses that cost several million dollars or more.

The rider should not sit in the front or the back, but should be dead center, so they do not throw the horse off balence. Like if tyou sit on a barrel on its side and lean back, the barrel will tip up. If you lean forward, the barrel will tip back. If you sit in the center, the barrel will stay in place. This sounds easy, but it is very difficult to master staying in the center all the time, but it is essential to a good ride.

Today, economic pressures have driven down the price of engaging in this traditional leisure activity.

This stance helps riders keep their balance during difficult situations.More Tips For Safe RidingIn the saddle, riders should keep their head and shoulders straight and high.

Yes, that would be a very high jump that only the most athletic horses working with the best riders would be able to attempt.

If your horse throws a shoe while you are riding it then you should get off the horse and find the shoe. It's not a bad thing though though if you keep riding your horse. However you will feel a difference, your horse will too. it would be like a girl walking with only one high heel shoe on. If you are showing when this happens then you need to go to the middle of the ring to your ringmaster and tell that your horse has lost his/her shoe and ask for a time out. My advice to you is to not keep riding your horse after they throw their shoe. It's a not a big deal though either it doesn't hurt them in anyway. :) ;) <3

Many people consider horse riding as dangerous because of several reasons:If you are a nervous rider, there is a very high chance that the horse will pick up on this, and will understand that you don't feel in control. This can lead to many mishaps and accidentsIf the horse is 'green' then he has little experience. Horses and riders that are both 'green' are sometimes placed together, which is dangerous, beacuse they are both as unsure as each otherMany injuries can occur from horses: kicks, riding accidents, bites and diseases just to name a few. These can be painful, and in some cases, fatalThere are also many other reasons why people consider horseriding as dangerous, but I have just listed three.

A regular horse is between 14.2 and 16.2 hands high. A normal riding horse is usually between 14 and 16 hands high. A horse below 14.2hh is technically called a pony, but many people find shorter horses more comfortable to ride and easier to mount. (It is very difficult to climb onto a 16hh horse without a mounting block!) However, a taller horse has a longer stride and can run faster and jump higher than a short one. This is why most sport horse breeds are usually very tall. Riding horses are usually crossbreds and their height will depend on what breeds are in their pedigree.

AB 'Banjo' Paterson's Man From Snowy River was a famous poem based on the following: A valuable racing horse had escaped and joined the wild bush horses of the High Country in Australia. Many riders gathered at the station where the horse had escaped, and joined forces to go after the horse. Many experienced riders such as Harrison and Clancy also gathered but there was one very young man and his weedy horse. The man was told that he could not come on the quest to find the horse because he was young and inexperienced, and such a ride was only for the worthier riders. Only Clancy stood by his young friend saying that he and his horse were mountain bred and knew the hills well. The man and his horse were allowed to join all of the other riders. Once upon the mountains the group soon spotted the horses. The experienced riders tried to bring them around but lost them as they galloped over the mountain gorge. All of the riders then pulled their horses back as they watched the wild horses ride down the steep mountain - that is, all riders except for the man from Snowy River. He chased the group of horses down until they gave up. He brought them home with his small mountain pony. The movie was based on the poem, but with extra detail and embellishments. The high country of Australia was showcased beautifully, and the movie is well worth watching, if only for the scenery and the terrific horse chase towards the end.

To prevent concussions. When you are on the back of a horse they are pretty high off the ground, if you happen to fall and land on your head, then that helmet can prevent a nasty injury. Even professionals make mistakes.
