    Hey everyone, I am currently working on my thesis project for school and I would love to get some information! My project has now become more specific with three possible directions which will result in a physical prototype by April: 1) mitigating the effects of whiplash 2) protection of the...

    I own a completely beautiful little bay mare who's around 3 and a half. I got her exactly a year ago, she came as a sweet, curious and clever little thing and was happy with whatever you did with her. She was unhandled for her whole life up until the few weeks I got her - maybe something to...

    Hello! I'm new to the forum -- and I'm new to horse life -- but I'm quite glad to be here. I'm looking forward to reading through threads and getting to know people but first I come here with a bit of a pressing issue. My daughter and I just started riding lessons last month. We've done plenty...

    So I am writing a speech on the whole HYPP controversy, and I keep coming across the same secondhand warning about the risk of an HYPP horse collapsing while being ridden and injuring/killing the rider. Does anyone have any examples of this actually happening to back this up?

    Hello! New to the Forum! So a little over a year ago, I had a pretty accident on a trail near my house which resulted in me being trauma-hawked to a trauma center with a broken back. Thankfully it was a minor broken back..(haha ever heard that one before?) and I am back to riding and feeling...

    Welp. I'm afraid i'm going to be down and out for a tad bit and after 9593 days of life I have officially broken my first bone. I suppose I would of rather had this happen earlier rather than later when I have a job and responsibilities but it is what it is. I'm going to be quite sedentary for...

    Hi all! I was around for a few months last year and really enjoyed this site. I have a thread here http://www.horseforum.com/member-journals/ms-riding-lesson-journal-270921/ on my riding lessons, trying to keep track of how I was coming along. I had a really bad accident in October. Which I...

    Okay so I recently fractured my patella lifting hay :oops:. Thankfully the patella itself did not break, but the cartilage and bone underneath it was shaved off and went into my calf muscle. I had surgery and have my exercises to do before I get into physical therapy but I need a bit of help...

    Does it ever feel like you are being snubbed whenever someone tries to 'teach' you something about horses? I mean I have grown up around horses.... until about 14. Then I was into teenage things and then off to college. Now I am 24 and I recently moved onto my boyfriends' parents' ranch where we...

    Texas has it's own simple minded weather, winter and summer in one week. One day the winds hot and sticky would easily break a waters still surface, while the next day a chill would cause any man to shiver. Now Texas is known for one thing, and one thing only; their cowboys and cowgirls that...

    Hey! Today, I was riding my horse when I noticed that the 3 mischevious Shetland ponies had escaped and were running toward the road (that's not too far from the highway.) So I had to quickly tie Putts up to an insecure gate panel. Long story short, when I was rounding up the ponies, he spooked...

    So yesterday I was in a quad bike accident with my boyfriend. Nothing too serious, but I have damaged/pulled/sprained/bruised just about every muscle on my right hand side. Ouch! I have extremely sensitive skin, so I can't use any "Deep Heat" or creams similar. I have been using a heat pack for...

    Me and my horse, Biscuit were having an excellent riding lesson until the end, we were heading up to some trot poles and he got fresh. He ended up bucking me off and I broke my femur. I had surgery last week and I have to make the hard decision whether to keep Biscuit or find him a new home...

    Browsing through YouTube, I found this video and could hardly blink while I watched. Just the unpredictability of what can go wrong, and how it can get worse. Really wish I knew what the final outcome of the last horse was. Not sure I would have the guts to play chicken against a horse and...

    Hi all, I am looking for some advice here. About 6 months ago, (Sept 25th), I was riding my 4 y.o. in a lesson, when at a trot, on a circle, he just goofed off a little and reared up. I know that I should have given him a walk break sooner, but my trainer wanted us to reward him on a good note...
