Both my horses won't touch carrots! They don't eat bugs either!

PrincessBarbie, when did you want to have your horse trained? If I remember right you posted pictures of her in another thread -- I believe she was of fairly young age, looked immature for that age and there were some weight gain issues that you were working on taking care of. That would mean it would be awhile before she could handle a regular training regime.

In another thread you were told your mare was in very poor condition and also appeared to be a yearling. She is absolutely nowhere near, being able to be ridden. She does need lots of ground work first.

Carrots have absolutely nothing to do with whether or not a horse listens to you. Horses probably eat bugs all the time, when eating hay, grain or grazing.

Also in the other thread, you suddenly said your horse might be half Arabian, because she has a thick neck? Her neck is not thick and is in fact, very hollow and thin. Who is feeding you all this BS?

You said you spent $50,000 on this horse but you now think she's crossbred. Something with your posts just do not ring true. I know you have said you are new to horses, but someone is telling you some pretty iffy stuff.

Purchase good books. Do google research on the net for questions or of course, ask here. You likely will get different answers, but go with the answers of people who are long in horses and are knowledgeable.

I think before you even place your mare in the hands of a trainer, she needs to mature and be put in excellent condition. Hopefully she is now in a safer area than previously. Forget riding her but take riding lessons yourself, while she matures.

I have been wanting to take riding lessons for a long time but haven't had the time to do research because I have had housework to do and running errands.I know she's not Arabian.I didn't pay no attention to my friend's son.My friend personally said she is not Arabian.She is part walking horse and she is gentle as she can be.She does need to be worked with for at least a month.I will get her a good trainer.

I'm sorry to say, PrincessBarbie, that she isn't ready to ride just yet. She really does need to get some more weight on her and she needs to grow some more (bone and muscle) as well so that she can physically take the weight of a rider and have stamina to do the work without breaking down. I would suggest you would want to wait at least a year with her before sending her to a trainer. In the meantime, there are things you can do on the ground with her - like take her for walks, set up obstacles for her the walk around and over, etc.
