  1. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    I have had my horse for about three years, since she was four, she is a well bred Connemara pony with papers but somehow ended up in the kill pen after the breeder's husband sold all their horses. she was very very anxious for the first two years of having her, it took her a very long time to...
  2. Horse Feeds, Feeding and Nutrition
    I love Gro n Win from buckeye, but having to ship it in off of Chewy, I was wanting to see what we have locally. I noticed Country Companion Endeavor in our store, but have found almost no reviews on the brand nor the feed itself. Has anyone had experience with this brand? What ration balancers...
  3. Horse Talk
    Hello. I am brand-new here. After reading old threads for answers over the last few years, I finally joined because I need your advice. I’m at a crossroads with my 15 year old Holsteiner mare—and I hope this post won’t be too long!! In June 2021, I bought a horse knowing she wasn’t sound. I was...
  4. Reining
    Hello everyone! I am getting into the big-time reiners this Fall and I have some questions and concerns. 1) I have a trainer who is helping me horse shop and she wants me to stay in her barn after we find a horse. I am skilled/experienced enough to maintain a non-pro reiner on my own (aside...
  5. Barrel Racing
    For years I have had one goal in mind. Barrel race morgan horses. Be completely honest with me, I am a barrel racer in a barn of jumpers, I have heard it all haha. Be mean if you want to. But do you think this is realistic here? I have started my morgan on the pattern and he loves it, gets so...
  6. Equine Careers and Education
    Here we gooo... a new college thread to add to the vast selection, lol! I'm starting this one because all of the other ones I found were years and years old, plus very repetitive. I want to start this by saying I am not looking for a bunch of "equine degree bad, college useless, no money" type...
  7. Horse Feeds, Feeding and Nutrition
    Hello everyone! I have a colt who I feel is bordering being overweight. Unfortunately we got his mom from the feedlot, so we have no idea who the sire is. He is currently 10mo old. I only just now started feeding him grain (used the rest of our Buckeye Gro’n Win ration balancer, now feeding...
  8. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I'm looking to see how you guys train your horses. What order do you train things on the ground? At what stage of groundwork, do you move onto getting on them for the first time? What order do you teach things to a horse under saddle? How long do you practice these things before moving on to...
  9. Horse Talk
    I wasn't really sure where to include this post and I hope it isn't confusing, but I wanted some advice or even just to know that others have been or are in the same boat as me, as people in my personal life don't really understand. So some background, I grew up around horses, started riding...
  10. Horse Health
    I have an 11 year old Appaloosa gelding.. I’ve owned him for going on two years, he’s always been a character, and by character I mean totally grumpy borderline aggressive, even sometimes to the point it’s dangerous to deal with him on the ground, I can’t let anyone else around him as he is so...
  11. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello everybody, I have a 5 year old gelding that I mainly hike with. He generally obeys pretty good, but sometimes leans on the bit. I know that the problem may be somewhere else, but I'm trying to change the bit anyways and I would like to know, of the two bits that I have found as a possible...
  12. Horse Health
    Hello everyone I’m new on here and was just looking for some friendly advice, I have a yearling whose mane was fluffy and full before he was turned out for summer. Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed his mane disappearing, I’ve been today to the field and it was even worse, I’m going to add...
  13. Horse Talk
    Hi guys! I've only been riding about a year, and recently gave back a horse I had leased out for 7 months. I found a 12-year-old gelding for sale.. but he needs a lot of work and I am not very experienced. This horse had a bad reaction while being bathed (he kept moving around, acting like he...
  14. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    Hi! My husband and I recently purchased 25 acres in an extremely horse-friendly community. We are planning on eventually building an indoor arena and a small barn (just a few stalls - we will be living in Northern Utah where there is plenty of snow and bad weather). Because there aren't many...
  15. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello! I have been wanting to start training horses for others for awhile now. I am 19 and have over 10+ years of riding and training experience. I have worked and learned under multiple different trainers, and have rescued, rehabilitated and re trained over 12 horses in the past 3-4 years. I...
  16. Horse Health
    Let me give you some back story! whenever I drive to town I see these horses LIVING in round pens, knee high in their own crap, and NO shelter. I have no photos! But I do plan on getting some! I’ve seen NOBODY out there, no ferrier, nothing. Just a half rotten roundbale. HERES the thing...
  17. Western Riding Queries & Competition sub forums
    I have just started western lessons and I am a SUPER beginner rider. I'm a very nervous rider as well. The first lesson went decently I think. I had fun and really wanted to go again. The second lesson didn't go as well. I found it extremely difficult to focus on everything all at once...
  18. General Riding queries
    Hello there to whoever is reading this! I have been poking around some barns trying to find a new one because my old one just wasn't a fit for me, and I came across this barn that seems pretty great. They offer what I want and seem a good fit for me. I was looking at their lesson and it said...
  19. Horse Talk
    Hey y’all! Looking for feedback and personal experiences. I recently started riding again six months ago. I’ve been friends with my trainer and a couple girls at the barn. So now I end up spending more time there than just lessons. Often we all hang out together. I’m very happy to make horsey...
