If your horse goes to buck you should try to keep its head up because it is harder for a horse to buck or lay down if its head is up.
Hunt seat equitation is your ability to ride your horse. Being able to post on the correct diagonals, keeping your horse in control, and keeping a good pace, and be able to ride a pattern. In showing you have an equitation class and a showmanship class. Showmanship classes are based on your ability to show off your horse while riding. Have them pick up their feet enough so they won't trip, keeping their heads up, staying in control, correct diagonals,putting your horse's nose down, and just make them look pretty. Equitation is based on your riding, Showmanship is based on making the horse look pretty as well as your riding abilities.
I wear mine in order to have alot of grip on the reins. Like if the horse takes off out of no where, or your jumping, you need to keep the reins up in order for you or them not to get hurt. :) Hope that helped.

You can ride the mare up until she is five months pregnant.
Inhand means you are not physically up riding on the horse. You are showing them off while standing on the ground. A common name for this is halter or showmanship.
When you're tacking up a horse it means your putting all the equipment on the horse. Tack is saddles,bridles and other equipment used to control the horse while riding... you wouldn't ride bareback with no bridle would you?
yes no matter what a riding hat should always be worn while riding a horse as if they get spooked they will rear or kick (usually) and you could end up with severe head damage or even death if not wearing a hard hat.
To put it where it is suposed to be
u fly up into the sky and explode then go to Ireland and eat potatoes while riding a horse and farting.
When a horse is acting up, you have to show them who is the boss. Most horses will try to test a rider to see how much they can get away with. Do not let them get away with anything. To build your confidence, you just need to keep riding.
When riding against traffic, the horse will not be suprised by a vehicle coming up behind them, so it is less likely to suprise and therefore spook your horse.
