  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have a 3 yo filly that is the sweetest little lady you ever came across. She grew up in a large herd of horses. She’s very submissive. I’ve had her in with several different horses and she’s ALWAYS the one to make peace. The other day I put her in with a like-minded older mustang mare and I’m...

    I need a show name for my horse Holly, we've got a few but I'd like to see what people would come up with.
  3. Horse Conformation Queries and Critique
    Hi all! Looking for opinions on this mare's conformation and if she could hold up to some mid-level jumping. Or, if not jumping, what other jobs she could do decently well at without falling apart. She's been 'retired' for a few years but I have a young, adventurous rider looking for something...
  4. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    So I have an 8-year-old Arabian mare and I think we need some help. I have had her for a few years but I think we are getting worse together instead of better. I don't think we trust each other at all. We are fine at walk-trot, but when we canter she picks up the wrong lead, and when we get it...
  5. Horse Talk
    Hello, fellow horse-people! I have an issue with my mare. My horse won't canter while I am riding her. She canters just fine on the ground, ( in the roundpen ) But, when I get on her and ask to canter with very clear cues, she pins her ears, and just goes into a faster trot. I kick as hard as I...
  6. Draft Horses
    This is not a troll. I am dead serious. I have recently bought a new mare for breeding but it has a problem. It has a VERY oversized clitoris and vagina which extends down from top to bottom about 2 hands or so. This clitoris itself remains well hidden while it is not in heat. But when she is in...
  7. Horse Health
    Hi all! My mare is a 17 year old Quarter Horse. For the past four years, she has had swollen teats about the size of golf balls which have never reduced in swelling. She has never foaled. No heat, she let's me clean in between and touch them as well. She is on Crypto Aero and Vermont Blend--no...

    I've had my 8 yo Arab/BW for 6 months now. She was on a hormonal supplement and was fine but they stopped producing it so we had to move her to another brand. But this supplement isn't working and she is starting to get extremely aggressive. She used to be really easy to catch in the field but...
  9. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    My mare is very sensitive and absolutely hates clippers with a vengeance! Can get the job done with some sedatives but her face is a no go . I was wondering if anyone had used any alternative methods of achieving the same clipped look without actually clipping their face. I have seen the...

    Hi, again! This time around, I have another concern for you guys. My mare tends to put her ears back as soon as I go into her stall and catch her. Her ears are always back when I’m with her. Her ears are back while riding, too! I have no idea what this means, because I am a first time owner...
  11. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hi everyone. My mare drove me nearly to tears today. She is very, very barn-sour and is extremely lazy. I've only owned her for 3 months now and she has only improved slightly. When I attempt to ride her out of the barn she spins and backs up. When she does this, I immediately hop off and make...
  12. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    So I want to preface this by letting you guys know that the owner of this mare has had both a farrier and a vet come out to look at her and neither have found any issues. I recently got a job at a therapy barn and they have one specific mare that has a lot of issues. She’s thrown kids, won’t...
  13. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hi guys! I'm writing to see if anyone can offer me some training advice for my mare who seems to have separation anxiety. She's generally a well behaved horse, but she goes wild when her neighbors leave her or if I walk away from her while she's in the cross ties. When her neighbors leave, she...

  15. General Riding queries
    Hi guys. So, I had a bit of a rough day today. I recently bought a horse about a month ago and have been practicing bareback riding with her. It's been going decent, but sometimes I'm not for sure if she's just being ornery, or just does not understand my commands. Anyway, I went to go ride...

    So I've got a mare that I rescued back in September. Since then, I've bonded quite a bit with her and I honestly adore her since she has a golden personality. This mare learns FAST and once she knows what's expected, she does her best to please. Not only that, but she's incredibly sweet. She...
  17. Stallions and Broodmares
    We are thinking of breeding our Welsh/Connemara/Shetland Cross in a couple years, but I was just curious how much taller the stallion can be to the mare? Our mare is currently around 12.1 hands and is 2 1/2 years old, I'm thinking she might grow to around 12.2 or 12.3 still, not much more than...
  18. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    HI! I have a 20 year old Mare in my farm. When she was younger my family hired a trainer to teach her to be comfortable with riding and people. However, they had a really aggressive approach making her anxious, she fell trying to escape and had a slight injury. She's all right now, but she is...
  19. Horse Talk
    I have a mare that any time she is anywhere near other mares NOT part of her herd. She "teases" them prancing, squirts, winks, and displays as though she is in estrus. She also seems to really have the attention of our neighbor's mares all of which are breeding stock with them seemingly doing...
