  1. Horse Training
    I have a 4 year old Percheron Cross that I've been working with for awhile now. I've done alot of Clinton Anderson, Stacy Westfall, John Lyons training with him. He responds very well when we are in a controlled situation such as in a known space, like the roundpen or around the property. If he...
  2. New to Horses
    In the past my family hasn't been able to afford riding lessons. So sense then I have just been reading every single horse book I could find and learning as much as I could. However, recently both my parents got new jobs, so my first lesson will be on Friday. :loveshower: Does anyone have any...

  4. Horse Talk
    I have been half leasing a horse since October, and while for the first month or so we did not have this problem, he has developed a really irritating habit of pawing the ground as soon as I hook him up to the cross ties.

  8. Horse Training
    Okay so I never have a problem with him any other time, until feeding time. He becomes pushy and he tries to nip me if i walk by to feed my other 3 horses. I dont know some times hes an absolute angel and then the next day hes crazy. I think it has something to do with his pinned up energy since...
