  2. No new threads please. Phasing out
    Hello everyone I need advice on how to train a stubborn horse. I've been riding horses with my dad since I was 12yrs and have been working with my horse Boomer since I was 16yrs. He and I got Boomer ridable, but he's still stubborn as hell. Bucking, fighting the reins, ect. At the age of 18, I...
  3. Horse Trainers
    Hey everyone, I live in a place where the equine community is very small-especially in dressage. This causes a lot of drama and gossip issues so I try my best not do anything that others would pick apart and essentially make me the outcast, but I still want to progress and I want to be noticed...

    Hello everyone I am a horseback rider in China. I just had my second horse. He is a five-year-old Danish warm-blooded gelding who seems to have Lordosis disease. When I first met him, he was thin and his back swayed, but after I took him back with the better care and foods half month . His...

  7. Horse Training & behavioral problems
    I have recently started riding a horse who has a few bad habits. Most of them I know how to correct, but some of them I am not sure about. He carries his head low down, which I know is better than him having his head up, but he ends up feeling quite heavy in your hands, as well as it not looking...

    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...
  10. Member Journals
    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...
  11. Horse Training & behavioral problems
    Hi! I wasn't sure if I was supposed to update my previous thread or make a new one, so I opted for a new thread. If I'm violating forum etiquette or anything, please let me know! I don't want to annoy people. Anyways, I posted a little while ago on the 22nd about my horse Ladybird, asking a...

    Hi! I'm new here, so I'll start with a quick explanation of my situation. Sorry if this is long -- I've never been on a forum before, and I want to make sure I'm coming across clearly. I'm 19, and I have quite a bit of experience with horses. My mother was a horse trainer earlier in life, but...
  13. Horse Training & behavioral problems
    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...
  15. Horse Training & behavioral problems
    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...
  16. Gaited Horses
    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...
