  1. New to Horses
    Hello! I am relatively new to horses. I have grown up around them, but never had one of my own until now! I rescued a 2 yo quarter horse stallion (was actually gelded today) and he stands about 13.1 hands. I was hoping he would get a little taller, as some told me he would. But today the Vet...
  2. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi, I've been working on my canter these past few lessons and was wondering if I could have some help with my hands. I have very soft and quiet hands at the trot, however I am unsure how to use them when cantering as the movement is obviously quite different. My instructor has told me to move...

    I have a 15 month old full bred Arabian we rescued and am concerned about her size. She's currently 15 months old and 12.3 hh. She's SO much smaller than other arab foals we've rescued from the same place. She has a good weight, but is just so much smaller than what I think she should be. I'm...
  4. Horse Talk
    Need an opinion on good horse height. I'm 5'8/5'9, lightweight, and I ride western reining. As quarter horses are a generally small breed (or most of the one's I've come across anyway!) I usually ride smaller horses, but love big horses. Because I'm tall and slim though, I've been told I look...

    ok, this is a really stupid question,:oops: but how tall do you think my horse will get? He is a 2 yr. old QH gelding that currently stands 14.1H. Is this short for a 2 yr. old QH? I really would like to hear responses from those of you that have raised a QH and seen how they grow. Any...

    As some may know, I have a problem with leaning forward, which makes me fall off from leaning so much. I read somewhere that if I lift my hands up more, that it will be easier to bring my shoulders back and lean. is this true? I'm really looking forward to finding out this Sunday and can't wait...
  7. Horses for Sale and Wanted
    Our family is looking for a horse this winter/spring and I was wondering, what size horse would be good? I am about 5 foot. My sister is about 4 foot 8, my mom is about 5 foot 3, and my dad is about 5 foot 5. We are a short family and wondering how tall of a horse would fit our whole family...
  8. English Riding
    I have been doing dressage for about a year now, and the one thing that has consistently stayed the same is that I still use my hands to move around the ring. My trainer is always telling me to use my legs first. But i'm really having trouble with getting any response from my horse when I use...
  9. Horse Health
    So I just bought a little quarter horse filly who is now 2 years and 8 months. She stands at 14.1 hands right now, but her dad was 15.1 and her mom was 15 hands. I've heard horses stop growing around 2 and then just fill out, I'm hoping she gets to at least 14.3 hands, will she keep growing for...
