  1. New to Horses
    Hi! I'm Julia from Vermont. I'm working on training a Morgan who used to be shown saddleseat, but is now going hunter due to back problems. Looking for tips on transitioning to a new bit, working on ground manners (he's very spirited!) and any general advice! :pinkunicorn:
  2. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hey guys :) So my boy Jack is close to being 3 years old. So I was wondering what you guys think of his conformation. I did post him to an actual FB conformation group but have been getting 0 responses so I figured I'd try here. I can see a few things myself, but I'd love to hear more...
  3. Horse Breeds
    A friend of my husband has a 6 year old Morgan stud that he has raised since 6 months old. Unfortunately he wasn’t able to keep him anymore and asked if we wanted him. I asked him how much and he said for free. I laughed super loud and asked him if he was joking. Who would give away a proven...
  4. Horse Showmanship
    Hi - My daughter shows her Morgan horse at high school equestrian meets (its a sport at her high school). In the rule book it says for showmanship that they horse equipment is breed specific. She was showing in Western Showmanship and they told her her show halter was incorrect. I tried...

    I was trying to google swayback and the images that came up varied. Wondering if this mare has swayback. She is 10 yrs old, Morgan/Quarter cross. Her back looks a little more deep in person, but maybe I am paranoid a little? (I hope.) Also, she is spooky, and hard to catch, any tips for...

    Alright, this is kind of a long story so buckle up. A person I know (let's call him John Doe) currently has a horse. I've known for a while that the horse was not getting the best of care that he could get but a few days ago (5/5/17) when I was at John Doe's house, I was spending some time...

  8. Horse Health
    Myself as well as all the local vets and every horse person I know is stumped with this one. I have a 21 year old Morgan horse (not a lippitt) gelding that I have had for 5 years now. When we first got him he was in great health, had no problem keeping on weight, and was always healthy. About 3...
  9. Horse Breeds
    Good morning everyone, I own Lane, a 100% foundation Morgan that is simply the best horse I've ever owned and worked with. Whether it's the breed or the horse, I don't know but he is 90% predictable and rarely spooks, excellent, excellent with ground handling, and I will go so far as to say...
  10. Horse Breeds
    I bought a mare about 9 months ago, and I have no idea what breed she could be. She has a very high trot and likes to stick her head up in the air when she trots, and she prefers trotting fast over cantering. Her movement is really nice, but even after training a slow jog is really unnatural for...
  11. Horse Conformation Critique
    I thought this would be fun! What do you guys think of my little mare's conformation?? She is a 7 year old, 14.3hh, pure bred morgan!
  12. Horse Breeds
    Hey there! I have a quarter horse of my own but my husband and I wanted a pasture buddy for my mare and also a horse for my husband. My husband had a co-worker who offered us a kinda lease option on her horse. She basically gave her to us with the stipulation that she HAD to come back to her...
  13. Horse Training
    Hi! I’m a new Horse Forumer and I was wondering a few questions specifically about driving. What are the benefits? How long did it take you to train your horse to drive? Has anyone made their own cart/harness? I have a 5 yr old Morgan (broke to ride) and I think driving is cool (I have never...
  14. Horse Pictures
    After over a year of looking, I have finally found my second horse! Meet Robert T (barn name still undecided), a 2011 off the track Standardbred gelding. He was never raced as he was deemed to slow in time trials, and was sent straight to the meat man. Something about him just grabbed my...
  15. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    I realized my other thread could have been wrote differently. I also could of gave more info. So here is to a second time. With better luck hopefully :-) I own a 6 year old Morgan mare. She is not the park style. She is more stocky, and many people think she may be Lippet. She is a very sweet...
  16. Stallions and Broodmares
    This stallion doesn't belong to me but I adore his looks and have heard wonderful things about his temperament. I would love to here opinions on breeding him to a black arabian mare. Here he is Jericho's White Knight- Perlino Dun Morgan - Jericho Creek Farms Morabs, Morgans and Arabians
  17. Horse Nutrition
    So I recently (almost a year ago) bought a pregnant Morgan mare. When I got her someone told me not to feed her sweet feed(that's what one of our QH eats) that too much of the sugar and something else in it was dangerous for her because of her breed. Since I knew nothing about the breed I...

  20. Horse Breeds
    I have a 17 year old Morgan cross that I've had for a few years now, and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas on what breed she could be crossed with. She's 14 hands high, and acts like a giant puppy most of the time, and is very curious. However, she can be quick to anger. Before I got her...
