AskHQ: How long does it take for a young horse to become balanced?

Asked by Briana McGull

This is a very open-ended question that is entirely dependent on the horse’s individuality and upbringing. Some horses are naturally better balanced than others, even from a very young age. Foals and yearlings who are turned out in big paddocks are a lot more likely to learn about balance than those who are not.

When a horse is backed, the type of work that his rider puts into him will greatly influence his ability to be balanced under saddle. Certain exercises can help to develop balance in the young horse, and it’s really up to the rider to ensure that not only is the horse doing the right exercises, but is also doing them correctly. Lots of turnout time with sufficient paddock space will only help your horse’s balance further.

Impressive Private Residence, Munich – Germany

The stone-clad street-front façade of this opulent residence in Munich appears mausoleum-like, impressive and enigmatic.

The building […]
