  1. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    Hi all! So I bought my registered Haflinger gelding (Waylen HD but I call him Auggie) from a California Haflinger breeder about 4 months ago. She did not breed him however. She was essentially acting as a broker for the seller back in the midwest. (Amish background) I have the bill of sale & a...
  2. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hi all! I need help with this situation… I have a 12 year old haflinger that will bite my legs when I try getting her to trot or canter. I’ve ruled out all possible medical issues.. it’s not the saddle.. nor the pad.. she lunges just fine, I’ve been doing loads of groundwork to help...
  3. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    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...
  4. Horse Conformation Queries and 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...
  5. Horse Health
    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...
  6. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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...
  7. Horse Health
    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...
  8. Horse Health
    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...
  9. 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!
  10. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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...
  11. Horse Conformation Queries and 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...
  12. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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...
  13. 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...
  14. Horse Colors and Genetics
    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?
  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...
  16. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    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...
  18. Horse Colors and Genetics
    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...
