  1. Horse Training
    Hello everybody! I have a tiny little problem with my recently bought Hispanoarabian mare, I hope I'm writing it in the correct thread... Every time I lunge her, as long as it's to her good side, which is right, she works perfectly. We change the side and that's when the problem appears... In...
  2. New to Horses
    Hi there! Not so long ago I bought my first horse and we are working on improving our connection on the ground before any serious riding. Yesterday I was lunging her and suddenly there came a 17 y.o girl with 11 years of experience telling me that I'm doing it all wrong. Basically, she told me...

  7. Horse Training
    Hey everyone - I have a 13 yr old percheron/POA/icelandic horse cross (yes, strange I know!) named Harry Houdini, just under 14hh, who has been a pasture ornament for the last 2 years. I have had him for about a month, and while he has made huge improvements in his attitude towards me (as well...
