  1. Horse Health
    Hay there, coming at you with a more serious topic. I bought my first horse on January 4th of this year, and I am very much in love. However, the place I board has some "training tactics" I don't agree with. I overlooked it because I foolishly thought that since they just feed my horse they...
  2. Horse Trainers
    So I just started boarding my paint at a new barn, and am a bit concerned with the horse trainer's methods.

    Ok, I was just reading a thread about horse racing and such and I saw PETA mentioned many times in it. It seems most of the members in this forum are against PETA but it also appears that there are a few people who seem somewhat supportive of them. I was just wondering where everyone stands on...
