  1. New to Horses
    I am new to the forum and somewhat new to horses as it has been 30 years since I last owned one. The horse I'm concerned with is a 13 year old mare quarter horse. Recently, she has started panicking when I remove a halter or bridle. No problem putting either on, but just drama when I remove. We...
  2. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    My mare was out of action for 6 month and when she started work again in January this year she was very excitable (as expected when shes not done anything for a while). Only thing is its 4 months down the line and she is still just as excitable. When I started hacking her she was jogging a lot...
  3. Horse Training
    I'm thinking of getting a set of training or draw reins for my horse because we are haveing a lot of trouble with getting her head down. When I ask for flexion she will sometimes do it and other times she will throw her head way up and cross her jaw (also considering a grackle/figure 8 bridle)...
  4. Horse Training
    Hi everyone. I know this is a common problem, but those of you who remember know I asked some help with my gelding Kroon a week or so ago. I assumed his head throwing problem was just bit evasion 101, but it seems that might not be his only problem. Somebody suggested a Kimblewick and a BIG...
  5. Horse Training
    I ride on a rodeo drill team on a 12 year old QH gelding that has an absolutely awesome handle.... However, the better he learns the pattern, the faster he thinks we need to take it. Not a good plan! It's gotten to be an incredible battle to rate him in the maneuvers where he's not the lead...
  6. Dressage
    I bought a large haflinger gelding a few weeks ago. When I bought him they told me he was an eventing horse and great at dressage. He is really good except I cant get him to pay attention to me. I also ride him western and with that bit (a tom thumb snaffle) he collects very well and pays...
  7. Western Riding
    Every time my mare decides that she is not interested in doing what I ask she decides to throw her head up to escape the eggbutt snaffle. I do not want to use a tie down. I have tried martingales, draw reins, and side pulls. I don't want a piece of equipment to bandaid the issue I want to fix...
  8. Horse Training
    My mare has an issue with head throwing and I want to know y'all opinions on how to work on fixing it without just adding a new piece of tack like a tie down to cover up the issue. She is a mare of course but when I ask her to do something she doesn't want to do, that's when she throws her head...

My problem is with my 20 year old SA Boerperd Gelding...
