barn sour

  1. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Not even sure if this qualifies as Barn Sour, because he's never in the barn, we do feed near the barn but not in. He's currently alone until we find a good companion, so I am not removing him from friends either. We are only riding on our property. His pasture is 1.5 acres, so I am not removing...

    Hi everyone! So I'm looking at purchasing my first horse who happens to be a barn sour mare. She's 5 years old and has been on pasture for most of the time her current owner has had her (about 2 1/2 years). I've dealt with quite a few barn/buddy sour horses since I've started riding and even...

    I have a horse that I mildly barn sour. He is a sweet gelding and will do any thing you ask him to. The problem is that once you let go of the reins on the ground (like you fall off or need both hands and need him to follow) he runs for home. This happens all the time when I have friends ride...

    When riding my stalion will take off with him self and all I have is a bitless bridle. I ask for a small trot but he wants to gallop back to his food I'll pull back on the reins but he dosnt slow down. I'll have to turn really hard and I hate doing that cause it hurt him, I'm afraid he'll hurt...

    So basically the story goes: I have been volunteering at a rescue for almost 2 months now. One horse in particular has taken a liking to me unlike with anyone else. She is a 4 yr old mustang. She is broke to ride and has a ton of hours on the trail but never without another horse. A few weeks...

    Okay so I am working with my aunt's horse. She is a very busy lady (has 4 horses, and is always traveling, and is getting older, just turned 63) and in the past couple years has not had time to give her horses the attention they need. I am going to start working on her gelding (who is the...

    Hi! My boss has 4 horses who i'm always around and I feed them often. She is a very busy person with her business and family and doesn't really have time to ride 4 horses the way she should. She did have a trainer work on them all the time but that can get pricy especially with 4 horses so she...

    My new horse can only be taken on group trail rides because if we are alone, he turns around and runs back to the carn and no matter how hard i try, he will NOT stop until he is inhis stall. it is dangerous and quite frankly scar. i have tried turning him in circles or leaning as far back as i...

    I have only been watching CA on RFDTV and saw in his recent episode a bit about his patience pole. While I don't care about the marketing of his pole, I was curious to hear your thoughts on the idea of tieing a horse after a training session. It seems like a pretty good idea to not simply...

    :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...
