    When I said "abuse my mares training" I was saying how sometimes it is hard to work with multiple horses at a time from experience and some get more work and training time than others.

    Yearling
    I have 2, and have had at least 2 for the past 5 years. Plus have ridden training other peoples horses for most summers. Its easy, right now im riding my 5 year old and 3 others weekly. My colt is only a yearling. You adjust yourself to each horse and its needs. And I don't think my two feel neglected at all for not being messed with while im riding the others. Actually when I've been between horses and only had 1 to ride I didnt like it much, right now my gelding is my only ridable horse so I can't wait until my yearling grows up. Why I'm going to start riding our old 21 year old on trails. Im bored.

    Then that's on you, if you don't know how to properly budget your time to give each horse equal amounts of time. It's still not 'abuse'. That was a very odd word to use.

Lol I have my horse and I am working with another at the time on a weekly basis with another horse thrown in the mix occasionally and I just find it difficult juggling them around sometimes sooooo I just wanted to see how people incorporated multiple horses at one time.
    well then now that we have a question I will ignore that op post ;p

    As an individual I find it impossible to work with more than one horse at at time, so I rotate lol

    There is no designated days of who gets worked when. I work them based off of what my goals are and what improvements they need and which ones are more important at that time. Its just prioritizing what you think is more important.

    Don't worry the concept of prioritizing will be something you will have to deal with everyday for the rest of your life so its a good thing to practice now :)

    Its not about who has more horses or how many someone has but what you plan on doing with them... its not abuse in anyway to have more than one, as your last sentence hinted to that... if anything its abuse to keep them isolated and alone with no herd other than its human... but then that's is assuming your horse is not boarded with other horses..

    Plus if an individual has the funds and the resources to have 1000+ horses just as pasture puffs what does it matter... me you and others are not involved with that one person and can't make judgement on what they feel is good for those horses whether they are being handled or not
    Um.....guess I forgot to mention that my horse is boarded with 6 other horses

    I have three horses, and it can be hard to juggle them around, especially as a full time college studen looking for a job, lol.

    It's just a commitment. Besides, it's relaxing after a long day, lol.

    Very odd indeed.

    OP - you asked how to make it work with multiple horses? I keep notes in my day planner.

    I also work horses for other people besides getting my own worked.

    The only abuse is my house isn't as clean as I would like it or meals are more on the fly because I would prefer to spend my time in the barn.

    So, you board your horse? I am not at all against boarding, but I do find it odd that you are someone who is not even providing direct 24/7 care for your ONE horse and are questioning the ability of others to meet the needs of multiple horses.

    I feed & water My horse and clean out her stall and all the works! Basically all I needed was the space to keep her at.

    I have three. I love them all! My oldest is 20 and I have owned him for 16 years. He is semi retired but could easily hack every day so I guess I don't NEED another! But I LIKE havig them all!

    Number 2 is a 5 year old who I broke myself when he was 3. Got him because I love babies and I love brwaking and training. Kept him because he is AMAZING and I love competing him (which my old horse cannot do). So I definitely do not NEED number 3!

    Number 3 is a racehorse (I would say ex but she is just out of training so not even really ex yet!). Two reasons to have her - always wanted to retrain a racehorse and also she was due to be sent abroad and her owner didnt want her to go but needed to be practical (you can't keep every racehorse on a racing yard). So gave her to me at big cut price because they knew she would get a lovely home!

    I may not always be able to keep three but I can't imagine who would go....... and they are great pals as well!
