  1. General Riding queries
    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...
  2. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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)...
  3. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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...
  4. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries

  5. 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...
  6. Western Riding Queries & Competition sub forums
    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...
  7. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    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...
  8. Trail Riding

I live on a farm in South Africa and currently own eleven horses, soon to be 12, one of my mares went for a visit to a friends' farm and came back pregnant. My problem is with my 20 year old SA Boerperd Gelding...
