Sore nose

I just recently got a horse from someone and as of today if I touch on her nose she makes a sound and moves like it hurts, she also did so when I combed the part of her mane in between her ears. What can cause this? Does she maybe have something in her nose?

First, howdy and welcome to the forum .

Just going from your description, I would guess that she is just not comfortable having her face handled. There are lots of horses out there like that. Do you have any trouble getting the bridle or halter on her?

I haven't put a bridle but no prob with a halter. She never did before I bathed her yesterday and cleaned her nose.

That may have aggravated her just enough to make her touchy about it today. Truthfully, I would just ignore it and go about your business.

Can I ask a totally different question? I've only had her a few weeks and don't know when I should try to ride her. She was never completely broken but has been ridden. I wish I knew someone who could help me out.

My advice is look for a trainer for both yourself AND her. Someone experienced in teaching how to ride and training horses. It might be expensive in the long run, but you will be much happier for it. (This is of course going under the assumption you don't know how to ride, or are a beginner of course, and I mean no offense)

Ah good then, assuming by rife you mean Ride. :p

I do, however, still stand by getting a trainer atleast for her. Like I said, might cost a good deal of money, but in the long run, it'll be better for both you and the horse. It will also benefit you to get a trainer to come train the horse WITH you, for future circumstances should you get another green broke horse, you will atleast have the foundation knowledge to work with them. (Atleast in theory :) )
