  1. English Riding
    Hi! I have been leasing a Saddlebred since June that was going great, but he will almost never canter no matter the efforts. He has begun to be a little full of himself and went after a kid teeth-bared and ears pinned when she had gone to get his pasture mate. Since I want to canter every time I...
  2. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I love horses, I eat, sleep, breathe them. But lately I just feel like I'm getting nothing out of it. I rode my horse this afternoon at a walk. I was sorta excited to ride but I was nervous as well. The last time I did, someone was lunging and my horse freaked out and bucked so I fell off (I...
  3. Horse Talk
    Please help, this is urgent! I recently sold my horse, and the buyer wanted physical copies of his papers. I only have photocopies, but they're photocopies of everything needed. However, the new owner won't give us the full amount we originally agreed on until we send her the papers. We don't...
  4. Horse Breeding
    Hi there So to make the story short, back in June I got a new mare for free. A friend of mine was going to get a filly in some stables over 3 hours drive away. The filly wasn't comfortable with traveling alone and 6 hours would be too long to take her own mare there and back in a day. So I got...

  6. Horse Training
    I have a 12 year old TWH mare. Her name is Princess and I've owned her for 3 years now. I've been working with her and trying to understand her. She is a very different horse compared to others I've ridden because of her gaits. All other TWH I've ridden walk, gait, pace, canter, and gallop...
  7. Horse Talk
    I am jumping 90cm+ and prelim/ almost novice dressage. But my first horse I bought was perfect for me - at the time. Recently I have been wanting to move up to higher showjumping and harder dressage tests (combined training) but my horse doesnt have the ability to go any higher. Don't get me...

  9. New to Horses
    Hi all! So as you may know... I am totally new to horses, and this forum! It would be really helpful if someone could please tell me the basics of having a horse? I haven't gotten a horse yet (I won't for like 5 months...) but I am starting my research! I have an Encyclopedia of horses, and have...
  10. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Alright, I'm going to try to keep this fairly short and sweet and to the point. I'm still a fairly new horse owner. I got my gelding, Tigger, last March, so I've had him for a little over a year. I only do trail riding as of right now, and I'm having some difficulties with him. At about 16.3...
  11. Dressage
    So my riding instructor has officially confused the sanity out of me. I've been leasing since the Spring - warm, wonderful springtime when we could actually ride because our rings weren't frozen over - and the entire time through the fall (not summer, all leases are terminated during summer so...
  12. English Riding
    Hi everyone, I'm very confused about collecting my horse and I'm afraid that my trainers provide me with vague answers that don't particularly help me understand the concept of collecting a horse, what it implies exactly and how can I do it correctly, since I am having so many problems I'm...
  13. General Off Topic Discussion
    Hi everyone! So I'm not really sure what to do. Three years ago my family moved from Pennsylvania to Colorado, and I got to bring my lesson horse with me as my own. Since then, I've gotten a second horse, started dating my best friend who's still in PA, and graduated high school with plans of...

  15. Horse Talk
    So I'm totally new to this and feel slightly odd turning to the Internet, and consequently complete strangers, for advice but i hate talking about this with those I'm closest too just right now. I feel like everybody is too close to my situation and will try push me the way they want rather than...

  18. Horse Talk
    Has anyone out there tried the e-book by "Beth Moore" on growing horses manes and tails? I think the book is titled FAIRYTALE HORSES. Anyhow, is it a scam? If you have tried it and it DOES work, could you please post pics of your horse? If it does NOT work, please let me know! All answers...
  19. Horse Tack and Equipment
    My super-green horse HATES the bit! Every other young horse I've had in a mild eggbutt snaffle mouths it around for an hour. . . or two or three. . . but he is acting like an alien is in his mouth. . . for a month now! I'm wondering if anyone has had success with a french link sort of bit, or...
