  1. Horse Training
    Hey all. I own a few horses now, one of which is a gorgeous TB mare (homebred, never raced). She is 7, and green broken. I bought her as a companion for another horse but her paddock mate ran her through a fence. I have separated them and will avoid putting them together from now on. She is...
  2. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I don't know if anyone can advise. i'll give a quick back story. My pony is 17 years old I've had her for over 10 years now and just did natural horsemanship, schooling, hacking, the normal things a 14 year old would do. Sadly recently (now I am older) I couldn't afford her anymore so had to put...
  3. New to Horses
    SoI have my end of year exams coming up next week and have obviously been revising all this week. Because of this I have come to the decision of not: a) going to the show this Sunday coming and b) turning out the ponies 24/7 for a while. The ponies, however are finding it difficult to get...

  5. New to Horses
    Hi all! So as you may know... I am totally new to horses, and this forum! It would be really helpful if someone could please tell me the basics of having a horse? I haven't gotten a horse yet (I won't for like 5 months...) but I am starting my research! I have an Encyclopedia of horses, and have...
  6. Barn Maintenance
    Yeah, it's probably fair to say: "I'd tear it down and build a new one," but I thought it might be neat to try to fix it up if possible. I would like to know what you, creative reader, would do with this barn if you had it and wanted to fix it up. The barn is a 26' x 36' pole barn with metal...

  8. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hello! I am currently a student at Kansas State University. I am taking a class in which we have to write a business plan for a business we would be interested in. I have ridden horses for 15 years and decided that I would like to do my project over a Boarding/Training facility! A major part of...

  10. General Off Topic Discussion
    I need help ASAP. Two days ago I had a chocolate milk and I guess I spilled some in my locker in the locker room. Then I threw it away. I get to school the next day and one of my knee pads for volleyball were soaked in it. I played the game that night on my friends knee pads. I washed my knee...
  11. Teen Talk
    I didn't even know the forum had this page... never looked that far down I guess. Anyways, as I said in the title, I just don't know what to do anymore. Of course, you have no clue what I mean, so heres the story: I moved to a new state in 7th grade (I'm a freshman now), and got a crush on this...

  13. Hobbies
    So I have a good sewing machine and enjoy using it. I was thinking of sewing some things and selling them here and on Etsy, but the problem is... WHAT? At first I thought of really nice, original and thick saddle pads, (I had another thread talking about this) but those might be too much work...
  14. Horse Training
    I have a 4 year old Appendix QH, who has been ridden a handful of times. I have ridden her a couple times with other horses and she does great, but alone she pitches a fit and walks really fast backwards toward home. :evil: Today I rode her, and made some good progress by either turning her in...
  15. Horse Tack and Equipment
    The pony is approx 14.1hh, bay gelding called Ben. He was ment to be for dressage at a Prelim level and showing. At his last home, in Ireland, he did WHP, jumping and showing. He need's more condition for showing. When my sister rode him for the first time, he wouldn't stop cantering and he put...
  16. Horse Tack and Equipment
    Okay, lets first adress the reason why I need a bitless bridle: My horse has been gifted with a previous rider... with hard hands. So, when you wiggle your fingers to drop his head, he "roots" or pulls down against the bit, pulling me forward. We have tried up to a mild pelham, and down to a...
