  1. Horse Training
    There are so many different ways that people choose to deal with a horse that bites, what do you do? I own a horse who is lovely and respectful while I lead her and ride her, but when I groom her/ brush/ tack her up/ tighten her girth she snaps and throws her head around or bites.(Her saddle...

    I have a 19 yr old Warmblood mare that I have had for 3 yrs and she still has absolutely no respect for me. When feeding she gets impatient and kicks out at me. She is kept in a 2 acre pasture and paddock along with 2 other horses, a Belgian mare and QH gelding, all the same age. I have watched...

    So when I put her out in the pasture I can't get the lead rope off her before she runs! Im quite little (5'3", weighs just over 100 lbs 16 yo girl with not much muscle) I can't hold on to her! And now after her doing this a couple times im a little rattled. How do I get her to stop running?

    :cry: I have an older horse. He's recently alone- the other boarders left about 2 months ago. Now all he wants to do is eat in pasture, not be rode, he doesn't want to lunge he'll go about twice around and turn into me and stop. When I take him out he's okay going out- but on way back towards...
