  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I recently purchased a 2 year old Haflinger gelding. He was with his filly sister and they are extremely herd-bound to each other. When I was working with him, he displayed some rearing attempts. It wasn't a full rear, but it was definitely a rear. What can I do to discourage him out of this...
  2. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    My horse picks up her feet just fine, but when I start to pick them out she hits me with her tail. She's not having problems with flies (I've sprayed her and checked her over thoroughly) and there isn't anything wrong with her hooves as far as I know ( she just had a vet check up and her feet...

    Hey guys, I have an Arab appy who is 9yrs old and ALOT of bad habits learned from his old owner. She let him get away with too much for his first 8 years. She also lied saying no vices, trailers, bathes, all of which are untrue and he is terrified of. When she fouls out a month later she paid...
