    Hi, I have a 21 year old quarter horse gelding that had recently started bucking, but only when he lopes on his right lead. Other than that he doesn't buck. He has NEVER bucked before this started. He is a barrel horse and very well trained. He is also quite the gentleman so the bucking...

    Hi everyone! So I have a sort of long and hopefully a non-complicated question. First, it should be known that my horse is an 8 year old Quarter horse/Paint. I've been riding for about 2 years...(maybe a little shy of 2 years). I'm having trouble with my lope transitions with my horse. His...

    Hi everyone! So I'm pretty sure this topic has come up several times, but I thought I would start a new thread. I've been around horses for 10 years. I just really started riding about 2 years ago. I have a wonderful instructor and we just started working on loping. I have very little...

    Hey Everyone! It has been a LONG time since I have been on these forums but I know in the past everyone has been great help. So I have typically worked with younger horses getting them broke out and started/showing for pleasure events. With the younger ones it’s like a clean slate that I can...

    We recently added a little 9 year old Quarab mare to our "zoo". She rides in a rope nose hackamore and is amazing on the trails. She crosses water, plays in the pond, logs, anything you ask. Walk, trot, nothing phases her. We took her trail riding with 5-6 other horses, some gaited, some normal...

    So over the past few years I've had confidence issues cantering on my mare. I've never had a problem with other horses, but my mare sort of jumps into her canter. I'm fairly sure the root of the problem is the first time I cantered on her, she stopped dead in her tracks and I flew over her...

    Hey guys! It's been awhile since I've posted anything! Anyways,I need some help. Last Saturday,I brought my 3 horses home. Yesterday I rode my 11y/o gelding in the big field that isn't quite ready for the horses to go in (don't worry they're in the smaller field now). We loped,almost galloped...

    So I have been leasing a horse for almost 1 and 1/2 years and have been doing natural horsemanship with her for 1. She backs up with wiggling my finger and yeilds her hinds just by me looking at them. She has a fairly slow walk and trot and I have been working on slowing down her lope and her...
  9. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I am currently leasing a quarter horse mare. I have been working with her for a while on groundwork exercises. She is already mainly broke. The problem is when I ask her to lope, the first time i ask her she responds but then after loping once around the arena she will stop and when i ask her to...

    I've been working on maneuvering at the lope (me and my boy are rusty - especially me since I'm still learning) and I've been noticing that he doesn't (with me anyway) like to turn at the lope. We did large circles today and whenever we got to the turning part of the circle (close to the arena...

    I have a horse that has not been trained to slow down his lope for WP. Should I start out by loping him in a corral or is an open arena ok? This is a simple question. Just wondering!
  12. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Ok so today I worked with my horse on loping which is something that she hasn't done in a while, but at the beginning after warming up I loped her and surprisingly her lope was really good. Normally she has a reallyfas lope and is all over te place kinda hard to control. But then when my sister...

    Hello! I started leasing a new horse back in November. My first time loping this horse was about 2 months ago. This horse Is really tall QH and has a super fast lope because she used to be a reining/cow horse. So the first time i loped her I was almost falling out of the saddle. What are your...
