    I have been interested in horses since a youngster.
    My efforts to be involved with horses were thwarted at first by a mother who was terrified I would fall off and be hurt however she had to relent as my passion grew.
    There was a time while I was living and working in a big city when it was not possible for me to do to much riding however since moving to the country a few years ago that has now changed. We currently have two older horses and one four yo as yet unbroken horse. I am hoping I will be able to find useful info here when we start breaking her to saddle. This will be my first experience at this but everyone has to start somewhere.
    My main riding pass time is just plain hacking. I enjoy being out in the country with the company of the horse and have no interest in any any competitive horsemanship.

    Welcome to the forum. I agree, beautiful horse. Step one, raise the halter up so it doesn't hang so low on her nose. I have seen far too many accidents when people leave the halter hanging down like that.

    I think you will enjoy this forum. There are some wonderful helpful people on here. When are you thinking of starting the 4 year old and how are you intending to begin? How long have you had the 4 year old? What kind of horses?

    That photo was taken shortly before she came to us. We are no longer using that halter. It was hanging down because the webbing was partly torn through and it has now been discarded.

    She became very herd bound and we had to separate her from our other two horses. She is now looking to us a lot more than she did previously. I am hoping that when she has bonded well to us she can be returned to graze with the other horses without the herd bound problem recurring.
    At the moment I am concentrating on lead work with her. She does not lead very well. There is an inclination to look around and not concentrate on where she is being taken. Also there have been a couple of times she has tried to rear while on the lead but she is a submissive horse and does yield easily when pressure is applied to prevent the rear.

    She is a standardbred that didn't run fast enough to make it to the race track and was destined for the DT truck before being rescued. I am guessing she has not had a lot of positive contact with humans before now. We are working on showing her that human contact is a good thing.
