  1. Horse Training
    Hey guys, my horse gets real nappy on xc and digs his toes in and doesn't want to go anywhere. He loves showjumping and also loves to do some cross country schooling but as soon as you get to an event he just won't go anywhere and tries his hardest to not do it. He loves going hunting as well...

    Disclaimer: Sorry, this is my first post. Okay, so I have a 16-year-old OTTB. Recently he has injured he deep digital flexor tendon while out in the field. Due to his injury, he is on stall rest, as according to instructions from my personal vet, and the best vet in our area. He has to be out...
  3. Trail Riding
    Hi, I wasn't sure what category of riding this should have come under but i mostly trail ride so here goes: My horse, as far as im aware was backed and trained purely undersaddle, and has never been ridden bareback. He doesnt have any back issues and goes soundly in a saddle, so when i hopped up...

    I don't know if anyone can advise. i'll give a quick back story. My pony is 17 years old I've had her for over 10 years now and just did natural horsemanship, schooling, hacking, the normal things a 14 year old would do. Sadly recently (now I am older) I couldn't afford her anymore so had to put...

    Hi, I have a 21 year old quarter horse gelding that had recently started bucking, but only when he lopes on his right lead. Other than that he doesn't buck. He has NEVER bucked before this started. He is a barrel horse and very well trained. He is also quite the gentleman so the bucking...

    My best friend recently purchased a sassy arabian mare named Storm. Storm is 7 now and not a baby, but acts like one, cantering along beautifully then dropping her shoulder and bucking, which eventually throws my friend off every time. I have a hunch that Storm does this because she has a bad...

    Hi - I had a few bad falls with numerous broken bones so I bought a quieter mare. Had her about 5 months and everything was great. 2 days ago she bucked on two occasions with me during the one ride. The second time i heard a stick break first. She has never spooked at anything (including...

    Forewarning, this is a personal little rant about my beloved mare, who I love so dearly. She came to me very ill. A starvation and neglect case. I worked on bringing her back to life, and like a lot of thoroughbreds once she started feeling good her trues colors came through. My horse is...

    I have been riding the same horse at my riding school for the past 6 months. He is a 9 years old gelding and an ex race horse (retired last year Oct). He is really a sweet guy, never bites, and behaves well when being tacked. At the end of Nov I will be having a dressage test, but I don’t have...

    My horse is called Ziggy for a reason-- he likes to go fast. He's a good horse, and sensitive to leg cues. He does take quite a bit of effort on the reins to slow down and stop, which we are working on. I've been riding him in a halter/bitless bridle sort of thing and he does just as well in it...

    hi all! Its been a while since Ive been on the forums. My horse Pluto & I had some issues today & i was hoping to get some advice. I'll try to keep this short! (brief backstory) I've had my horse Pluto for a little over 3 months now. He's an 18 year old, 14.2 hh arabian who was pretty...

    Young strong gelding. He is used to people, could be more respectful of space but not bad. Been handled a fair amount but no real training. Then saddled and ridden a couple times with no previous groundwork. More whoa than go. He was resisting going forward when he got upset and bucked pretty...

    I have been out of riding for over 10 years. I was recently given an 18 year old mare Hanoverian-Quarter Horse Cross. She was used as a school horse for two years and they told me they didn't need her anymore. She was previously ridden western, which has proven true as she knows how to neck-rein...

    Okay, this is a pretty long read, but please bear with me! I have a 12 year old thoroughbred gelding that I have no idea what to do with. I've ridden plenty of green horses, but he's the worst bucker I've ever ridden. I'm going to start off with the back story first. I bought this horse...

    Please help me I am a green green rider and I bought one of those cheap horses but I did have my teacher there with me when I bought her. She is a 10 year old quarter horse who had at some point had been trained and then left in pasture for 5 years. Now I know what I was getting into and so I...

    I have an 8-year old thoroughbred who was presented as a good lesson horse. When he arrived (bought in Canada) in nov 2015 he was underfed, needed deworming, had no muscles at all. We have fixed/are fixing all that. He had an injury but we took care of that too. I don't need a lecture on how I...

    Hi all, So last October I began half leasing a 20-year-old OTTB gelding with a rescue background. I was coming back into riding after two years off and I didn't start getting any instruction until the spring. Not a good idea, but I was starstruck with the idea of almost having a horse as *mine*...

    My thoroughbred, Trigger, bucks whenever he's excited. He's been like this before I got him, and I do not know how to fix it. He is such a sweet, gentle horse. He's very comfortable to ride and is normally a very slow and relaxed while riding. But when things start to get exciting, he'll blow...

    All of my trainers have told me when horses buck, sit deep in the saddle, stay loose and lean back, heels down... But I want to find the best technique for it. I've heard some people say to stay on big bucks you should lift yourself slighty out of the saddle (so the horse can't spring load you...
