    Hi! So my partner and I about 10 weeks ago brought the most beautiful girl into our lives. My partner has has horses for 10 years but I at the time hadn't ridden in about 9 so i am the novice and I'm gaining my confidence riding again on a friends cob before I hop on our fizz bottle. A little...

    My horse (15M) was severely abused from the ages of 3-6 and has learnt aggression and also has dominance aggression. I first started working with him May 2020 and have been bitten and kicked on multiple occasions but have never hit him, just told him off. He was always been especially bad when...

    Please no negative comments, this isn't my horse. Long story short I came into the life of a mare and 6 month old filly. The owner knows nothing about horses, so I offered to lend my help educating him and teaching the filly and mare ground manners. The mare is great, a bit pushy but it's no...

    Hello everyone. I have a 4 year old paint cross gelding. I have owned him since May of 2012. He was mouthy when I first got him, which I took to be typical young horse behavior. I begun ground work and light riding with him, and worked on reprimanding the mouthiness and teaching respect on the...

    I've started working with one of the horses at the barn and I've noticed that when I ask him to do a game such as "Hide the Hiney", he pins his ears back but shows absolutely no aggression towards me. With all the other ground work we do this is the only game in which he does this. He is a very...

    Hi everyone I rescued a 12 year old mare from the slaughterhouse and dont know much about her history. She is my first horse. She finally trusts me enough to come running for a carrot or apple and to let me groom her. However, and perhaps I am reading her behavior incorrectly, if I do not have...

    Our almost 5 year old mare gets irritated enough that she wants to bite if you hold your hand on her chest between her front legs. She has been this way from the beginning of desensitizing her when she was a weanling. I can touch her there with a cue stick and even brush her there. However, if I...

    I have a three year old paint gelding. He was gelded as a yearling, and as a stallion he was a complete gentleman. He was extremely mild mannered. About a week after he was gelded, on our daily walks around the barn to help him stretch, he started acting up. He would spook at nothing and get...

    I've been a trainer for 10 years and this is the most aggressive mare I have ever come up against. I haven't had stallions that were this bad. Here's her story- she's a 2 coming 3 year old Arab mare, has been kept in a paddock with other horses and does fine with them, but otherwise hasn't...
