  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello there:). I have a paint mare who is an amazing horse on the ground and amazing at showmanship. But once I get on her back she just wants to trot! I know she’s not in pain because when trail riding in the same saddle, bit, everything she walks perfectly fine. I’ve only had her for about 7...
  2. Horse Health
    My 19y/o thoroughbred mare has always been a little hot at times, some times more than others. However, recently she has been way more excited than usual where it’s not very manageable and it’s starting to interfere with my training. It’s not like an uncomfortable excitement for her - I’ll lunge...
  3. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hey all! I am currently trying out different bits for the OTTB I am leasing. She is very hot and can get strong. I like being very soft and I feel so bad when I have to pull on her mouth.

    Hello fellow Members! I am a small-town girl from Kansas. I have been working with horses since I was 5 years old. But my whole life I have trained trick horses and trail horses. I have now decided to take on a very energetic and spooky Thoroughbred Quarter horse mix. I took the horse in...
  7. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Three weeks ago I got my second OTTB. Her name is Sunny and she is 4 years old. The first week and a half were great; my trainer loved her and she was being well behaved, but a little nervous (understandable). Recently she has become even more "hot". I test rode her three times before I...
