  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    My OTTB Pepper has been giving me a very difficult time with his feet. First, he makes them very difficult to pick up, then when you finally get them he will stamp his foot down hard. Plus if you even touch his feet he kicks out to the side. If anyone has any tips or tricks or advice I would...
  2. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I recently just got my first horse (5 yr old paint). He’s a great horse but he recently started getting a kicking problem. I can pick up three of his feet with no problem, but when I try to pick up his back left hoof he’ll kick out. It’s not all the time and it’s normally just a small little one...

    I've had this gelding for 2 years and his aggression has gotten alot worse. When i bought him i was inexperienced (dumb i know). i was just starting out and wanting a second horse that i could ride, since my primary horse was a 9 month old colt (now 3 years old). Well i found this big 16hh...
  7. Horse Health
    My horse, Gunny (sun of Gunner) is having issues lately. When I go to stop him he is kicking out with one or both hind legs. How I can explain it is... that it's almost like he is landing after a jump on both front legs, kicks out and then tucks his butt under him. A kick out in the reining...
