  1. Horse Trainers
    Hey, I have only had one trainer my whole life and I'm fixing to move my horse and me to my aunt's house. I would like to continue lessons, but I'm not sure if realistically I will be able to trailer him to lessons. Because I have only had one trainer and am a first-generation equestrian... I am...
  2. English Riding
    First off I apologise in advance if there are unclear points/grammatical errors in my post as english is not my first language. So I have been riding in a riding centre for a year now, and the pony that I'm currently riding has been with me for four months (mainly because he is suitable to help...
  3. Horse Health
    Hi Guys! Earlier today I was on Bored Panda and saw this article (listed below) and I got myself really excited. In this study the scientists painted stripes on their cows and the cows had significantly less fly bites than non striped cows. IS this rubbish or is it real? If it’s real this could...
  4. Horse Training
    Hi, I recently moved my horse to a new place where the surface in the arena is a little deeper than the one that was at my previous barn. I am a bit (well a little more than a bit) concerned about my horse riding in this "deeper surface" because he had an injury a few years ago where his...
  5. Horse Health
    I have a very very arthritic horse. No broken bones and from what my vets have told me his sole issue is arthritis. 20 years old. Very Lame when not on the pill. I am currently giving him half a pill of a 227 mg Previcox pill daily. Along with equine senior Straight msn and glucosamine and...
  6. Horse Breeds
    Hey, so the barn I ride at rescues horses, unwanted, slaughter. This one was given to him, he was a show horse (jumper) and not sure the reason the owner no longer wanted him. But I have noticed for previously being a show horse, when riding him he doesn't like to listen and bolts off all the...
  7. Horse Protection
    I sold my Quarter Horse mare 4 years ago and I am now trying to look for her. She is registered. I found out the she had a foal. I email the people on the pedigree page and they said that they have no owner info. I also emailed AQHA 4 weeks ago and they have not emailed me back. Her registered...
  8. Horse Talk
    so I recently adopted a horse through a the rescue league here, and was wondering if anybody knew her lines..or could confirm her papers. I don't know too much about quarter horse lines or anything ( i've only had appys) She is a gorgeous chestnut (bright orange) quarter horse mare approx. a...
  9. Dressage
    My 5-year-old mix of trakehner and DWB (very good genetics) has started to lean on my hand and open his mouth. Because he is a young horse, it makes me really worried that he does this, and the judges never like it either, because you can see that he rejects the bit quite a lot. I have been...
  10. Horse Talk
    Hey guys! Ok so I'm going to try to make this as simple as I can. I am really wanting to ride tackless on my lease horse. I usually ride bareback with just a halter and lead rope. My lease horse is 22 years old and bomb-proof. She is fully trained. I have been riding for 5 years. I ALWAYS ride...

The problem is my mom wants me to go somewhere in California but I cannot find any good colleges close? Do any of you know of any colleges close to California or...
  12. Horse Training
    I've had my horse for a little over a year now, and he has always tried to nip when tacking up, he did this with his previous owners as well. However in the last few weeks it has gotten much much worse not only does he bite when tacking up he will also bite when rugging. He has never been...
  13. Horse Training
    My horse is testy and I just now am getting to the point where he knows better than to step on my feet, walk ahead of me, run me into trees, rear, walk back to the barn, etc. I have got my confidence up and you can tell that he is giving up on pushing me around. He goes where I say at the speed...
  14. Horse Training
    My first reaction is no. I don't want to smack him it would break our bond and I am sure there is a gentler way. I am finding no way around it. I am a pretty green rider so I purchased a horse that said kid safe in huge letters with no vices. I rode him at the place I purchased him and he...
  15. Teen Talk
    I started training a 2 year old for my friend. She is new to horses and asked me to help. I have never trained young horses mostly just adult horses. I do have someone that helps me train him though who is more experienced than I am. I am just a teenager but I'm pretty experienced (so I'm told)...
  16. Horse Training
    (fair warning: I tend to be long-winded and enjoy sharing details. You can find a summary at the end of this post if you want to just skip to the bottom and get to the point) Meet Snowball (or as my mother and I lovingly call him, Snowbutt): He's a 14yr old gelding "made of" Gunner Stock, a...
  17. Horse Training
    Hi there everyone! I am in dire need of some helpful tips. I have a proud cut 5 year old Pacifino Mustang with some serious attitude issues. He was sent to a trainer for a month and while he got used to being saddled, everytime I rode him he would still try to get me off. He bucks and kicks, and...
