    I just joined this forum, and I was wondering what advice you have for a student working on her training certification. How do I get started? I already have a Facebook page and I'm working on my website. Until I have finished my schooling, I'm using my page to share educational pieces, (basic...

    Can I even start a horse journal without actually having a horse? Well, I'm going to anyway. The purpose of this thread is to keep myself organized, and to keep track of my thoughts and progress. I like to gain knowledge on a subject as much as I can before jumping into it. A little about...

    Hey everyone! Bit of a strange question. So our county is starting up a Search and Rescue (SAR) team. They already have a K9 unit, but were interested in starting a horse unit. My question here is, does anyone know how to train a horse for search and rescue? I have a paint mare I primarily use...

    I encourage folks to question “the way they’ve always done things” with their horses. An introspective assessment, rather than seeking “answers” by imitating others, frequently leads people to an uncomfortable stage, of not so “pretty” revelations about themselves, behaviors and patterns in...

    I have 3 Stallions which I have had since they were about 1 year old, I wanted to keep them entire since they have a very good lineage and I think they will be good breeding horses. I only really have time to ride one so a friend of mine rides 2 and I ride the other one. First off as stallions...

    Hi guys, I am just curious if any of you have bought any of Ivy Schexnayder's DVDs or videos on getting your gaited horses to get your trotty or pacey gaited horses to do their correct running walk or foxtrot etc. Bought her DVDs and downloaded them the other day, and it taught me quite...

    This is me trying to teach Esmee to come when I do an owl call, like in War Horse. She's doing alright with it, although it might be better to try somewhere with less food kicking about! I'd also like to try and teach her without using treats, so hopefully she's coming for me and not her stomach XD

    I've been working with my mare that I've had for two years now. We've come to the conclusion that she is a left barrel horse, although when going to the first barrel she pops up out of it when going to turn she pops out to the right. I have been working with her on this for awhile, with all...
