  1. Horse Talk
    So, something new has come up, and it came up very suddenly. Backstory is basically that myy grandma had a guest over Easter weekend and I ended up hearing that she had a gelding that she was going to send off to auction because he was hard to catch. I didn't catch much more than that at the...
  2. Horse Breeds
    Hey everyone :) So my grandma had 2 ponies that she got roughly 6 years ago. The one was a rescue as she'd been very abused to the point she'd freak out if you picked up a whip or even just a stick despite standing a few feet away and not even directing your body towards her. She was also...
  3. Horse Breeds
    Hey everyone. So I'm getting a 6 month old foal in the next week or so. However, the owners don't know her breed as her parents were wild and came from a reserve. So I was wondering what you guys have to think about her and what you think her breeding her is? I have a few ideas, like maybe paint...
  4. Horse Breeds
    Me and my friend were wondering if anyone could help us identify the breed of a horse we ride, Jay, was. I realize what you suggest isn't necessarily correct but i'm just curious of what you guys thinks, thanks. Jay (the horse) is 15.2hh tall, male and from New Zealand. He is very calm and...
  5. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So I got a 5 year old mare a few months back (approx 6 months ago) and have been trying to figure out what to call her coloring. I'm new to owning my own horse and being around them regularly though I've always had a passion for them. So I'm still trying to figure out all the different names for...

    Hello, New to horseforum, and would like advice; apologise in advance this is so long. Have ridden (mostly lessons/arena) since age of 7, and now over age 50. Male rider, 240 lb, 6’0” very comfortable around horses on ground and in saddle. Can go a few years between riding, and mostly take...
  7. Horse Breeding
    My mare is a 16 year old Brandenburger with a pretty sick pedigree (Quando Quando, Shickeria, Akzent II, etc.) We imported her from Germany as a 7 year old and she's turned out to be everything and more for me, she's the most beautiful high hunter ever!! I've been thinking of the possibility of...
  8. Horse Breeds
    I'm in the early stages of researching and shopping for a horse of my own. I know that the most important thing when purchasing a horse is the health and temperament. But I was curious about everyone's opinions on best breeds for different uses. I plan to use my horse mostly for trail...
  9. Horse Conformation Critique
    I'm not sure her breed but she is about 14.2 hands and I am very bad at critiquing confirmation. I'm planning to do the jumpers with her and probably no jumping higher than 3'3. Thanks!
  10. Horse Breeds
    I recently bought this 14.2 pony for $3250 and she has a great w/t/c and has started jumping like 2'9, slightly green. However, the seller was not sure what breed she was and did not have a pedigree. I was too in love with her to care but her coggins was registered under quarter horse but I was...
  11. Horse Breeds
    I've been taking riding lessons for about one month now. I generally ride a 25 year old Dutch Warmblood. At my last lesson, my usual horse wasn't available. So I rode a 7 year old Appendix Quarterhorse. This felt like a huge change. The neck of the horse seemed shorter, so that I had to...
  12. Horse Breeds
    Hi. I'm an art student and in my creature design class I decided to use horses for an assignment. I wanted to use Appaloosas because of their unique coat patterns. However I'm not well versed i the varying breeds of horses. So I was wondering if there were other breeds with similar body types to...
  13. Horse Breeds
    Eve is a 2008 model pony, between 11.2 and 12 hands tall. I bought her off a guy who had hardly a clue about horses, and I'm dying to know what breed she is. The guy said she was said to have been bred by the amish. She is low-withered, has nice gates, and is very intelligent. :riding:

  16. Horse Breeds
    Rescued this 3 year old and wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what they think he might look like?
  17. Horse Conformation Critique
    I thought this would be fun! What do you guys think of my little mare's conformation?? She is a 7 year old, 14.3hh, pure bred morgan!
  18. Horse Breeds
    I rescued a gelding of about 3 years and his previous owners had no idea what he was and everyone kind of has their own opinion at my barn. I was just wondering if anyone could give me any ideas? Thanks
  19. New to Horses
    Hey I'm Halle and I am 15 years old. I'm a newbie to this forum:-).. I have always loved horses and I've worked with them since I was 5. My grandma says I'm a horse whisperer just like my great grandmother:shock::-P Well, to get to the point of this thread, my mom thinks that I'm ready for a...
  20. Horse Breeds
    Hi everyone! Recently I was told that there was no way my horse was an appendix due to her joints being so large and her cannon bones so small. What do you think? I know who her supposed parents are (her dam a thoroughbred, her sire a quarter horse). I fully believe the dam as she was n the...
