  1. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hey. I have taken on a lease for a chunky pony...He is very sweet, but has some sort of funky go-home complex that goes off every now and then. He starts to gently pull towards home, so I gently steer him back and he goes bezerk and bucks. I can sit bucks no problem, but the his saddle's...
  2. New and Returning members, introduce yourself here
    Hi! My name is Amelia! I currently full lease a little paint/quarter cross mare named Dot! She is the love of my life and we are currently going over low cross rails. She doesn’t know how to jump super well, and neither do I, so we are both learning together :) I rode for about three years off...
  3. Horse Health
    Hey everyone! just looking for some friendly advice. I just purchased a gorgeous Dutch harness mare. I’m hoping to use her for my personal horse in dressage. That being said she has an injury she got when she was younger. She’s currently only 3 years old. Bought from the Amish and broke to...
  4. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    hi! I’ve started working with this lovely cob, since I met him we started with groundwork and he’s come really far with that and will do almost anything for me, he’ll be tacked up no problem and responds well to voice cues but it’s when it comes to riding in saddle that he just won’t move. what...
  5. Horse Health
    Hi I may look like an absolute idiot posting this however I haven’t seen it before in any horses eyes near me. Does this look normal to you? I am just concerned about the white ring and the slight blue tinge to the pupil and obviously first thought is cataracts! It’s in both his eyes (pictures...
  6. Hoof Care
    I recently noticed when grooming/ picking out horses hooves that there is this gooey off-white substance on the hoof wall. It doesn't smell bad or anything, but I was wondering what it was. The horses don't seem to care about it at all. It can be scraped off with a hoof pick.

  9. Horse Boarding
    Okay so this is kinda a vent, but I also need advice. I just recently bought my first horse and it’s been a huge dream of mine. I have experience riding and I used to volunteer with a local horse rescue. So this all started when I ended up moving away a few months ago to a new area. When I first...

  11. Horse Talk
    Help! I lease a beautiful, amazing, calm, gentle, obedient, all around good horse. Problem is, he is an older horse, around 15, and no one has ever properly trained or interacted with him. He has no bonds with any of the other horses, and bites any horse who comes into his bubble. He tolerates...
  12. Jumping
    Anyone else stuck in the "begging instructor for instruction" cycle? I mention something that feels off such as unsteady hands and just get "yeah". I've talked about goals manyy times, but even when I ask questions I get nothing. Moving barns because of this but curious how others have dealt...

  14. Horse Breeds
    So, I bought a nearly 2 year old horse from a kill pen on September 1st of last year. She is my heart and soul, I love this horse more than any horse I've ever interacted with. She's been super amazing to train and work with. Anyways, she was sold to me as a spotted saddle horse. Ive been...
  15. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hi guys! I'm writing to see if anyone can offer me some training advice for my mare who seems to have separation anxiety. She's generally a well behaved horse, but she goes wild when her neighbors leave her or if I walk away from her while she's in the cross ties. When her neighbors leave, she...
  16. Horse Grooming
    Good afternoon . I just curious since I just started training. Would anyone use something like this for circulation? Would this make me stand out as a local groomer?
  17. Horse Colors and Genetics
    So this is a horse at my riding stables and people say his colour is a blanket coat snowflake appaloosa, and I trust them but I've never seen another horse that looks like him and his coat doesnt come up with the same thing when I search it . I just wonder what it is :)
  18. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hello! I'm new to the forum. I'm purchasing my first horse and, although amazing on trails (which is why I'm buying her), she is horrid in the arena. I have been around horses since I was eight (I'm 18 now), so I'm confident in the saddle. I'm not afraid of riding her there, I just need...

    Ok so recently I started working for someone who needed me to ride a horse she doesnt have time to ride and only has because she likes her personality. But doesnt quite know what to do with her. Shes a cute grullo dun barrel horse. From what I know she was ran on barrels for speed and only speed...
