Just love the 2nd picture. Looks like he is going to walk right through that fence. Like there isn't a feeder there at all.

11 year old Quarter horse/thoroughbred mare free to good home. She is good to ride except that she throws her head. She does have a tendancy to charge backward for no apparent reason. Has not done it when tied but might. My 7 year old rides her with out too many problems. I have too many horses and do not have tome to work her out of these problems. Other than the throwing of her head and the charging backwards she is a pretty good horse.



who would let their 7 year old on a horse that "charges backwards for no apparent reason" ?

Google "single-footing" and you'll find out. (Hint: It's a real thing, there's nothing dumb about this ad!)

She's probably in pain, maybe ill-fitting tack. I hope someone experienced gets her, she might end up being a great little horse!

I think you're right - throwing her head and charging backwards to avoid a bit or hard 7 year old hands!

Most of the time this is true. Sometimes it is not.

We had a mare that would charge backwards for reasons only she knew. And if she couldn't go backwards, she would go up (a big problem when she was tied -only tack was a halter). You could walk up to some obstacle on the trail and if she decided she didn't like it, she would back up very quickly and you had to really work with her to get her going forward again. In fact, the best way to get her to go forward after she charged backwards, was to force her to continue to back up until she was no longer wanted to go backwards. It is more of a mindset and attitude, some horses can get lots of speed in reverse. Same horse I was just talking about also could not be trailered in the front of a four horse stock trailer, she put a butt print in the back door because she got so much speed from just walking to the front. This mare was never abused, not in any pain or discomfort, she just had her own opinions on what she was wanting to do. We worked with her with a lot of patience and consistency, but she would still throw her tantrums from time to time.

So this horse could be an easy fix of proper tack and handling or just be this way no matter what you do and need an experienced and patient rider.
