first horse - help advice

  1. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Hey! I'm a new member looking for advice. Went out to see a possible buying prospect last weekend. Watched him on the ground, being ridden, being groomed and tacked up, etc. He had almost no problems, except for a playful bite that kinda hurt and a little topline weakness. However, I did notice...
  2. New to Horses
    Hello all! I was interested in getting my first full-size horse/pony (we have miniatures that I very obviously cannot ride!). I am interested in some light jumping with little to no competition (if I do it'll be a local fair). I want to jump 2-4 ft jumps. I don't like hot horses, however, don't...
  3. New to Horses
    So, as the title says, I am buying my very first horse! Not now, of course, but in 9 months I’m going to start leasing horses and work towards buying one! I’m very excited and I’d just like if y’all could review my details and give me any critique! (Please note: most of these details were...

    In a couple of days I'll be meeting a prospective horse for part-lease (and of course his owner! :) ) I am super excited! Having a part-lease will be the first time I've ever had regular access to a horse that I can really get to know and ride with some autonomy (I grew up riding at a riding...

  6. Horse Nutrition
    My Mustang is on a "hay only" diet. Is there a vitamin supplement in a treat form? When I bought my horse back in August I asked every question I could before taking her home. From what she eats to when her feet were last done. The lady told me that she does not require grain. However, she told...
  7. Horse Talk
    Hey guys, I apologize as I'm sure these kind of threads come up a lot! But very recently I've been given the opportunity to be owning my own horse and I just need some second opinions on whether you think I'm ready for it. Or better yet, if anyone has any experiences with how they afforded...
  8. Horses for Sale
    Hi, I'm fifteen and have been dreaming about getting a horse since forever! But..I'm not ready yet (and there's the whole "horses are uber expensive" thing). So for the next year I plan on being solely focused on improving my riding skills and gaining confidence untill I'm sixteen and can get a...
  9. Horse Talk
    Thinking of purchasing my first horse. She's a 5-6yr old mare a friend has for sale. Its an outstanding offer for a first time owner as she will cost me $700, and $50 a month for the board and feeding. The man who owns her now has been her sole owner, he raised her since birth. He told me he...
