I have been working horses for three years I've just never ever ever had a horse react the way she did and I made a stupid mistake I don't intend to make again. Today like I said I was going to do I worked with her. I didn't tie her up. I had lead in hand. Wormer in. Back pocket. Walked up to her (she is'ent running anymore) clipped her lead on. Stood beside her patted her and rubbed nose. Then took out the wormer tube. She proceeded to try to run. I had her on a tight enough hold go where evertime shed try to pull me around I walked her in a tight cercil. Eventually she stood still and threw her head up. I spoke to her gently. Rubbed her head. Told her open. Which is the command I use for her to take her bit (didn't make the connection until now) she open her mouth and let me put the wormer tube in no issue. I did this a few times prasisng her each time. And each time she got more relaxed. Thanks for the advice. I am gonna fill the tube with apple sauce now and will continue to do this. Thank u guys so much for the help. And yes money is an issue with pro help. But I have found a knowledgeable horse person to help me.

Trusty, I tho't I'd tried every trick known to man to deworm my qh. He goes bananas as soon as he smells it, doesn't have to see it. With the use of alfalfa cubes which I broke into wafers, I make alfalfa sandwiches with a dab of dewormer for filling and feed one at a time. Just a tiny dab in the first one. So as not to put too much in one sandwich make at least 6. This method has worked well for the past 6 yrs, no stress, no fight.

This is like the first time.

Also I normally never hit my mare unless I feel like she needs it.


You really contradict yourself in your posts. First you say you never smack her. Then you say you've only done it one time. Then you say you do it when she needs it.

So which is it?

From what I'm gathering, you smack your horse a lot; or at least more than you admit to.

I think you're parents are *almost* on the right track.

Based on all your INJURIES from this horse, and all your repeated troubles with this horse, and your lack of a support system, I do honestly think it would be in your best interest if your parents sell her. That would be the right track.

Maybe you can re-explore horses when you are older, and you have enough money to hire a professional trainer to help you.

Based on all your previous issues, I just can only see this going one way for you: You getting hurt. Yet again.

Glad you got it sorted out!

Everything we teach horses has to be connected somehow as that is how they learn what we want, it's called clear communication.

Ok to be clear. I smack her when she diserves it for example. Running over top of be, rearing, kicking, biting etc., But that is it. I was in the wrong with hitting her this last time the other times she was being bad and dangerous. Now other then that I do NOT hit my horse. Secondly if u read my recent posts I am getting help now from someone who did 4-H with equines. Who is a riding instructor and trainer. Third before up until recently I have been on my own with horses.I had to teach a lot myself through trial and error and advice on the interwebs. I am getting help now. Which is good.

If you parents say you must worm your horse or you cannot keep her, then this will worm her. Then you can get professional help. I am getting a picture that you do not have the money to get the help that everyone is advising. You can still get knowledgeable help some where from someone if you look around and really want the help.

I think you are a teenager, every county in the USA has a 4-H program. Through that you can gain knowledge. If there are boarding barns or horse farms close to you, you can ask to work there in exchange for knowledge. If you don't have some kind of knowledge of horse behavior and a VOCABLARY you cannot even understand the advice given here.

You need to learn how to handle your horse with someone standing right there to guide you. It appears the advice given here is not clearly understood by you as it is written and you are not "getting" it. Running out and getting this book or that book will not help until you understand things like "move her feet" and other phrases.

If you really, really want to have a horse, you need to put some time into learning proper horse handling and not get advice from random people you know personally who tell you they know all about horses. It is pretty apparent that they do not as you have been given one bad advice after another.

If I were your parents, I would not want you to have a horse either if you aren't going to learn how to handle her. Way too dangerous.

My question is, why are you so apparently against getting professional help? Continuing the way you have been going will not end well for either you or your horse.
thankyou and well put across in this situation.

again pointed out what has been going on.
it seems like the poor horse does not know were its going and it seems that there is nowere for flight to get away from the op so its resorting in self defence under provercation it looks 100% that way to me.
the op has stated that thay have been around horses for 3 years.
well judgeing by this there is a huge knolage gap here.
as for training like our bhs as to your silabuis it seems that the op has some one but if thay have the qualifcations why is that person puting the situation right.
and now we have a trainer well it seems we have added water and grew an instant one.
it seems stay tuned for the next episode of help.
