  1. Horse Talk
    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...

    Riding with my young cousin is always interesting to say the least. We went for a nice canter along the beach like we usually do... However, her pony decided that he didn't want to stop today-- resulting in a messy hoppity-pigroot-like action which tipped her forwards in her seat and flipped her...

    My MIL asked to ride my gelding last night. Well, he was given to me by her, and she's a very experienced rider, so of course I said yes. Next thing I know, my SIL is calling telling me my MIL fell off the horse and she has a serious concussion. My SIL was riding in front of my MIL and when...

    Hey there~ Um, I'm new to the horse forum! I'm Alyssa, obviously by my user name, I'm currently 15 years old and in school. I've been around horses since I was a baby, I love them to death.

  7. General Off Topic Discussion
    Ok, so in mid-september I feel off my horse in a jumping competition, I broke my tibia in 3 places, right down the bottom where it connects to the ball of my ankle. Thankfully it did not dis-place so I didn't need surgery, I also really badly stretched my growth plate. I was in cast for 5.5...
  8. Horse Training
    I have a 5 yr old TB that I've ridden on trail and in arena for a year. 200 rides, and really no trouble. I was riding abt 4 or 5 days a week, an hr each time, sometimes a 2 hr trail ride. Then my kids got off for summer break and I had to skip some riding days, and when I got on one time (in a...

  10. Jumping
    Hi, So this summer I had a pretty bad fall and broke my arm at camp. Ever since then while I am riding at home I am scared to jump that high (around 2 ft). I ride in a group, on a variety of horses, and I need to get over it!!!!!!! I especially get scared when I am on a horse that doesn't...
  11. Hi!

    Welcome! Introduce yourself here!
    Hi, I'm Rose! I not sure what to say here XD But I suppose my favourite breed are Andulusians (pretty much because they are beautiful and I love Spain), Selle Francais, Bretons, Hispano-Bretons, Menorquíns and Koniks. I stopped riding of a bit recently because of a fall, only because I needed...
  12. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    So, i fell of for the first time at my riding school today. I'm fine and didn'tget hurt. I started my lesson on my favourite horse, Tom but had to change. Honey is in season and they think she has worms or something and she bucked when the girl riding her tried to get on, when she got on she...

    Heh... well, it's November! At my barn they are having a No-Saddle November and a Stirrupless December! So, with that, it is my first time really riding bareback! When I was about 10, I did have one bareback lesson, but it was mostly walk/trot. Today, I walked, trotted, cantered, and jumped...
  14. Horse Health
    I've always given double doses (a few weeks apart) of Strongid dewormer for bots in the fall. It is what my trainer recommended and has done in her 30+ years working with horses. Strongid is Pyrantel Pamoate paste. But just read something about ivermectin for bots in the fall? Any insight?
  15. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I fell off today. I was going for a trail ride with my instructor. She was in front with a horse she was riding, and I was riding her horse. We decided to canter (my favorite thing ever!) The horse she was riding started cantering, and Reily kind of went "oh shoot Bosney is going lets GO!" and...
  16. English Riding
    Today I was at my lesson, when Bee refused a jump and I flew off head first into the little 2ft fence. I ended somehow on my butt, but my head did hit the fence. I'm guessing that I fell on my butt and my head banged into the fence, giving me whiplash i guess? My neck hurts pretty bad, mostly in...
  17. English Riding
    I have this HUGE problem. I will lean forward a little instead of sitting straight up. And the faster we go, usually the more forward I lean. But, I have no clue why. Today was the first time I fell off just cantering. Even though Bee was acting up a LOT and swinging her head all over the...
  18. Jumping
    Well.. today I had another lesson, where I rode Bee. We rode inside today and she seemed very fast. Like VERY fast. I could keep her at a steady canter most of the time when we were doing flatwork, but when we started jumping i was supposed to keep her at a trot. That was very hard though, I had...

    my 12 yr old gelding fell in the mud....he is limping on his right front leg and I can not get ahold of his vet. What can I do to make him comfortable until I can reach his vet? I have him up in his stall right now with comfy bedding, water and hay available, and have cleaned his injury sight...

    In a my years of riding I just recently got dumped off a horse for the very first time. And while people seem to fall off all the time I have been amazed at the stories people can tell about it. So what is your story? Go ahead, rant about it :D
