  1. Horse Training
    So long story short I've had my mare about 5 years, trained her from the ground up and she's always been great. I recently moved and moved her to a farm with a bunch of other horses (it was just her before) and she gets excited about them, all the time. When consistently worked she's better, but...

  3. Hoof Care
    Hello all! My gelding Whiskey threw a shoe overnight last night. I was out at about 10:30 pm and he was fine. This morning he was lame with a thrown shoe and a swollen fetlock. He is not putting weight on it. I rubbed some liniment on it this morning and wrapped some vet wrap just to keep it...
  4. Horse Training
    just wondering if you guys have some techniques or exercises for a very high strung mare. she is super spooky, very very fast and HATES contact with the bit, she fights it like crazy (its a rubber "happy mouth" bit.) she has a thing for throwing her body all over the place (while paying...
  5. Horse Breeds
    I've been training this saddlebred mare for several months now. She's the first mare I've broken but I know how to do it and the steps to get it done. I also have several people who have experience to help me. However, I'm having an issue with getting her to calm down. Slash will get into this...
  6. Horse Training
    My 12 year old trail horse needs to learn to leg yield. She interprets any pressure as "go faster" and gets confused and frustrated when asked to slow down with leg pressure. I would like to calmly do this at a walk but she is hot and will trot off with the slightest pressure. Funny enough she...
  7. Horse Talk
    Just curious to see what everyone's opinions are on fans for horses in the summer. I've always been kinda split, because on one hand it's miserably hot and humid so obviously a breeze might make them a little more comfortable. But on the other hand, I've always wondered if giving them a fan in...
  8. Horse Training
    I really need some advice as this is my first experience purchasing a young prospect. I am looking to purchase a four year old Swedish Warmblood filly as an event prospect. The horse has beautiful conformation, movement, and jumping ability/willingness to jump, and the price is right. The mare...

  10. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hello! I have recently started riding again and have taken interest in a rescue thoroughbred named General Lee. It's been a few years since I've ridden. I have no formal training when it comes to saddle work, just experience in lots and lots of trail riding. I have greatly lessened some bad...
  11. Horse Health
    Nick is a 7 year old TWH gelding. I have owned him for about 2 years. He is out of the Prides Generator blood line so his rather hot tempermant may be in part related to his pedigree. However, there are a couple of strange characteristics about this horse that puzzle me. First of all, he seems...
  12. Horse Training
    Hello :) I have a 13 yr old Arab mare that is 14.1hh and ALL spunk. (Diamond) She gets fired up REALLY easily, and is super green. She is pretty hard to ride, but I love her, and see her has my little prodject. I have found that if I make her (and yes, I mean make her,) trot to a jump, and stop...
  13. Jumping
    Both me an my horse are into dressage -- although we both had our start in jumping. Its been a few months since i jumped, and a few months since he had jumped. When i bought him he had a long standing rep. in the jumping field, but his old owners really didn't do much with getting him flexible...
