    I have a 15 year old haflinger gelding, and his weight varies a lot. One day he’s at the perfect weight and then another day he’s either under or over weight. Is this just something common with the breed? Today I noticed that he is looking underweight, I could see his ribs a bit. I haven’t...

    Hello everyone, I've been a lurker for years but I only recently decided to register and join this wonderful community! I'm Caesar, 31 years old guy from Northern Italy (on the Alps/Dolomites) and I'm super proud to announce that, after 20 years of horse riding leasing, I've bought my first...
  3. Horse Conformation Critique
    Possible Haflinger Purchase – Thoughts? I’m thinking about purchasing a Haflinger (#30536-08) currently listed on Dreamhorse, and I found some old YouTube footage of said horse. I’d appreciate a critical eye. My hope would be to casually compete in hunter paces and intro-only endurance. Are...

    There I am again, same case, different day. It's been two years and we still haven't found the answer. It's been 8 (now on the 9th) vets, an osteopath, a kinesiotherapist, three farriers, a clinic, an acupuncturist, a craniosacraltherapist, a herbalist and a massage therapist. You don't want to...

    I recently purchased a 2 year old Haflinger gelding. He was with his filly sister and they are extremely herd-bound to each other. When I was working with him, he displayed some rearing attempts. It wasn't a full rear, but it was definitely a rear. What can I do to discourage him out of this...

    To start off with, I've had my haflinger (could be a draft cross, she's taller and wider than a lot of them) for four years now. Normally she's this super lively girl hopping and hollering after you, making sure everyone knows she's present. She has always been the boss of the herd in any herd...

    Or, at least, almost. My horse had a bad, bad case of worms (I believe they're called red worms in English, I'm not sure), the most dangerous kind out here. The type that not only attacks the intestine, but the blood vessels are subject to them as well. I've been boarded at this place for a...
  8. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hello, I've noticed that haflingers tend to be in 8 point bridles/ prescott noseband bridles or ones with thick noseband bridles. (I'm not good with bridle names) I see them in general riding or dressage. What are they used for and is it fine for general riding with a haflinger? Thanks!

    Hey guys! Just a quick question- I can't seem to find any luck elsewhere so I am going to ask this question here: I have a haflinger gelding who used to be a driving horse. That being said, cantering was a big no no for him. I now ride english with her, some "hunter-jumper"-esque style...the...
  10. Horse Conformation Critique
    I'm so excited about this - Conformation isn't something you see in fora in Dutch. :D This is my mare - This is my friend's gelding - (Yes, same breed, only he's the luxury sort of haflinger :P A big Arabian, that's what he is.) My mare has lost a lot of weight, still needs to lose some...

    I have a 13 year old haflinger that I bought in January and since then we have been doing just walk and trot work because he was so out of shape. I think he is ready to start cantering but he is sooo lazy no matter what I do he will not pick it up. The only way he will pick it up is if we are on...
  12. Horse Shows
    Hello everyone! I am thinking of getting into showing with my haflinger and I don't currently like the name I bought her with which is Nutmeg. She is a typical palomino, haflinger mare. Does anyone have any ideas? She will most likely be shown in an in hand class but I still have do do some more...

    So the Haflinger I am retraining for my friend does not have the typical blonde mane and tail. It looks silver not blonde. Is there a name for this?
  14. New to Horses
    Hello :) I've recently moved out to the country (finally!!) and now I have 3 acres, plenty for a horse, right? I've always wanted a horse, and now that I'm old enough and have my own money I'm seriously considering getting one! Going riding every year for my birthday just won't cut it...
  15. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    I am having a hard time finding a saddle to fit my very flat backed haflinger, although he is not as flat backed as most. I am most interested in the tekna saddles but am not sure their xwide tree is even wide enough. Does anyone have a tekna saddle with an xwide gullet. If so do you know the...

    Hi all! So, my brand new Haflinger filly is coming home on Saturday! YES!! I went out to the barn yesterday to talk about the game plan with my BO, and she asked me if I had picked a color for her yet. I believe my exact words were "Uhhhh..." The last time I picked a "color" for a horse, I...
  17. New and Returning members, introduce yourself here
    Well not quite travelling right now, but I have been on the road with my beautiful Haflinger mare Kaylee for almost three years, covering 5000 km in western Europe (Germany, France and Spain), so I still think of us as travellers! :) On the road Kaylee was pulling a swiss-army cart with all my...

    About a month ago I went out to look at this pony that I saw on craigslist: When I got there I met a very sweet pony who looked like this: Yikes! Vet scored her as a 2.5- she was worse than the pics capture. I couldn't leave her- a month of good hay and our great vet doing her teeth/worming...
  19. Horse Breeds
    I bought my pony about four or five years ago. She is a liver chestnut 14.2 hand 7 year old mare. She is best known as, Penny. When we made the transaction we were never told what her breed was. So, I searched it to my best ability. I came to learn that her sire is a purebred palomino Quarter...
