  1. English Riding
    I know this is going to seem like a really broad question, but I've been skimming through the threads in the Horse Riding Critique forum and I've found myself wanting to provide input, but not knowing where to start. What are some of the first things you're looking for when you're watching a...

  5. Western Riding
    Hi! Last december I bought this beautiful gypsy vanner mare, which is trained for western pleasure. I'd known this mare for 6 years, and had been wanting her for just as long. But I don't know anything about the western style or.. yeah, anything. I've been riding for 18 years, mostly just as a...

    I didn't know if someone already started a thread about this but.. I know a little bit about Clinton Anderson Fundamentals and I can't afford his training tools, I would like to know how to make a lunging whip myself. Anyone have any ideas?

The previous owners had him since he was 2 months old and he has been through tons of trainers (western). When he got home from the trainers, the...

I've taken him over 18" cross rails and he likes it but he is really bad at it. Does anyone have any tips on...

  11. Horse Colors and Genetics
    I'm hypothetically thinking about breeding my mare who from what I've read is a Red Dun. I thought she was Chestnut/Sorrel but she has a dorsal stripe. Any way what color stud should I breed her to to get the best chance of a Buckskin/Dun foal? (They've always been my favorite)
  12. Horse Grooming
    I have been curious in seeing how difficult it would be for me to learn to trim my own horses hooves. I leave them barefoot and natural, so only the basic trim is necessary. Should I take a class or can I do it from videos and books? Just curious to see what you all thought and any...
