buddy sour

  1. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hello Everyone! Sorry for the long post but a little backstory I think is needed for clarity. I got a new mare a little over a year and a half ago, VERY green broke. She came from an owner that had her in with cows and no horses. After months of ground work and letting her be with my boys...
  2. New to Horses
    I recently moved my 7 y/o mare (Gemini) to a new place which has a 17 y/o gelding (Friday) that has severe separation anxiety. We thought it was just for the horse he'd been with previously but now he's also become thoroughly attached to my mare. My plan is to slowly start working on Friday's...
  3. Stallions and Broodmares
    My mare is due April 22nd and this is her first baby. I decided to put her in a paddock by herself so she could get used to being alone. Her paddock is right next to the pasture the other horses are in but it's a big pasture and if the others go far away enough that she can't see them she freaks...
  4. Horse Training
    I apologise for this long post! The horse is a 15.2h thoroughbred mare, she had come from racing, I assume had a little basic training done, sat in a paddock for a year with a lady who couldn't handle her and then we bought her for $500. When we bought her she refused to float load for two...
  5. Horse Shows
    Yesterday was Pluto's first time doing a gymkhana event. I wasn't expecting him to place, I only wanted the experience for him and to have a little fun. We entered FC so I planned on trotting him around the patterns and canter home. I've only had him for 4 months so I'm still learning things...
  6. Trail Riding
    Hi, I have a draft cross that is basically bombproof. I trail ride her alone and with friends depending on whos riding at the time I plan to ride. When we go out alone my mare is calm and everything is good. when we go out with other riders, my mare is fine as long as the rest of the trail stays...
  7. Horse Training
    My horses are extremely buddy sour. It doesn't matter what horse I put in with my aunts horse she freaks out so much in the pasture it causes the other horses to do everything they can to get to her. I tied both of them together (there is only two) right next to each other for a few hours. I fed...
  8. Horse Training
    I recently bought a 6 year old, OTTB mare. She had already been worked with some, as in I can saddle and bridle her, and ride fine. My issue is with her ground manners- she has none. As soon as I'm in the saddle, I can work her through whatever issues she has. 1. She is extremely buddy sour...
  9. New to Horses
    I just recently purchased my first horse. Before now I was just leasing. My horse has good ground manners. My problem is when I get on her. In the arena she takes off running. Then outside the arena she either will not move or takes any chance she can get to go back to the other horses. I do...
  10. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Actually, I'm not sure that he is just herd sour. I think that he is every other horse, ever, sour. This is my situation: I keep my horse at my house. I ride in both the pasture and the fields beside the pasture. I have no trailer, and there is no arena nearby. My gelding lives with my...
  11. Horse Training
    I just purchased a 17 year old QH/Arab gelding a week ago. I moved him from being a lonely horse in a pasture with no shelter, barely any water, and his only friend was a horse that lived across the street. He is now happily living at a boarding stable in a herd of 8 and loving his fresh water...
  12. Horse Training
    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...
  13. Horse Talk
    I'm looking for any input...here is my situation: I have a 14 year old Morgan gelding who I have had since he was a weanling. He is well trained, great to ride, and smart. He's also very dominant with other horses. My problem is with how the heck to manage him in the pasture. There is a mare...
  14. Horse Training
    I have a black 3 year old thoroughbred filly that I'm just starting to work with. She's always been friendly; the first one to meet you in the pasture, easy to catch, loves to be messed with, everything. However, her buddies are my two walker mares and her "boyfriend" is a mustang gelding. Every...
  15. Horse Training
    I have a 4 year old Arab mare (Kalila), she was a rescue, I had her doing great and handled all her issues and went from not having her trust me and not able to groom her to a loving mare I can actually wash, brush and trust behind me. I have recently brought in an older mare for my husband to...
  16. Horse Training
    Ok so Dean (the TB) has some anxiety issues and nearly every sterotypic problem. He head bobs, weaves, paces....does everything but crib. :shock: But anywho, we are working on those (free choice feeding in his stall and he gets a workout everyday plus new stall toys). The thing that is really...
