    I have a green thoroughbred that is absolutely fantastic by himself. Hes definitely got more go than whoa, but the work ethic is ten fold between riding alone or with others in the ring. When there are other horses his attention is on them. He bucks, bolts, spooks, and gets himself very...

    Hello everyone! I am a 20-year-old Texan, agriculture student specializing in equine studies (I'm hoping to get a master's in Animal Science and get a shoeing license). I am also getting my first horse in a few days! My uncle raises quarter horses and is kind enough to loan me a sorrel...

    As it seems, to my great joy, I will finally be owning and taking care of a horse of my own soon. I met the gelding yesterday, he's a gorgeous 15hh (roughly), five year old Quarter horse. Very sweet and fairly easy going. Two to three years ago, while wearing a halter and lead he went to eat...

    Back in September I wrote my first post here asking for advice on handling my fidgety horse. The focus that most people pick up on was that I was a first time owner and my horse was only 4. I was wasn't prepared for the flood of "Get rid of her... Get something more appropriate" but I don't...

    Bliss needs a job! Right now she's a poop-making pasture ornament because no one has time to work with her at the volume she needs to become a productive horse. She's got her ground manners, minus foot work, which will be worked on prior to her leaving. Her feet are magnificent, having never...
  6. Show Jumping
    So I brought my Lusitano Stallion with me to have a horse to ride while in College. In his papers, his grandsire Novilheiro was a grand prix jumper with John Whitaker! So I had the brilliant idea to teach him how to jump and try my luck. Lusitanos and most iberian breeds don't make good jumpers...

    I have a five year old, green, appendix quarter horse on trial with me that has a hard time picking up her left lead due to her slightly turned in leg. Its not bad at all, I cant even notice it. But when she canters she goes on her right lead most the time and when she goes on her left lead she...

  9. Show Jumping
    I have a new Friesian x Morgan cross, originally trained in driving, but with experience under saddle, and quite recently, introduced to jumping. What can I say? He loves it! He's green, but you should see how he perks up when he sees poles being set up. It's all I can do not to have him steer...

  11. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I want opinions. Other then mine. I was curious, how much is to much for a green horse? My little mare has had about 30 rides. But it has been awhile since she has been ridden, I don't know exactly how long. I only get to work her one time a week. Which sucks. But is better then nothing. I...
  12. Show Jumping
    My mare loves jumping and she is still green at jumping, but has been coming along nicely. I've never ridden another horse that exaggerates their jump so much, it doesn't matter if the jump is big or small. We've jumped them numerous times and she never hesitates at them so I don't think she's...
  13. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hi- This is my first time posting to the forum, so I hope I'm posting in the correct location! I'm worried about my new horse, and would really appreciate some help. I bought him a little over 2 months ago, and he settled right into our barn pretty quickly it seemed. When I first bought him...
  14. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    So the horse I'm currently working with is quite green, and is afraid of things being put on his back. The owner had once forgotten how green he was, and plopped a saddle on his back, which is apparently the cause of his fear. When I first started working with him, it took me a good five...

    Hi everyone! I've got a 6 year old 15 hand quarter horse mare I bought with 30 days on her in May. She got injured in June and then had two months off. She had just started giving to the bit and coming into a really nice frame in the walk about two weeks ago (I could only walk and trot her...
  16. Horse Riding Critique
    Hello friends, I wanted to share the videos and pictures I got of Ollie and my trainer and hear what you have to say. My trainer has done wonders since May of 2011 for us, I could be happier!! Currently I am thoroughly upset with myself for totaling my car and hurting both my backand neck...
  17. Western Pleasure
    Hi, Im looking at a two year old and My trainer has actually had this guy since he was a baby and I remember him riding him only at 1 years old and now, as a two year old, he's almost broke. So basically what I'm asking is, will there be any problems with this horse because of being rode so...

    I have a thirteen year old black and white paint horse. He has one partial blue eye, and today when I went out to see him I noticed the blue has turned to light mint green. It was fine on Sunday, and today its not. He doesn't seem bothered by it, and he reacts to my hand going by his eye, it's...
  19. General Riding queries
    Hi I recently bought a 5 year old quarter horse I would like to start on barrels. I know how to train for barrels. But this horse is apparently "green" broke according to the old owner. I've been riding him and he seems really calm and understands the basics. The owner never gave me the full...
