    Okay so this lady at the barn asked me ride her two year old thoroughbred gelding, Hogan, for the summer. :blueunicorn: She's sending him to the race track in September. Hogan is a very nervous horse. Nobody has done any kind of ground work with him. They held him down, threw a saddle on him...

    Hi, I adopted a Tennessee Walking Horse back in May 2014. The only problem I have with her is mounting. I am short and need a block to mount. I generally use my tool box to mount. But, she will begin to walk off when i try to mount , turn circles, anything she can think of. Can someone help me...

    Hello all :) So, I'm having some trouble with my 4 year old OTTB, he seems to always manage to find the perfect timing to start backing up the second I go to mount. I'm usually alone, so what are some tricks and training I can do? He doesn't have any back issues, or anything like that, and...

    Okay, so I have had my horse now for about 7 - 8 months. When I first got her, there were difficulties mounting because she was green broke. We overcame them in a few weeks, and then never had a problem with them since. UNTIL spring turnout came around. She was out for a week before being...

    I have a 9 yr old OTTB who has been off the track since 2008. She is a pretty easy going mare but is a little high strung. I have only owned her for just under 2 months and she has been at the new barn about a month. I have been lungeing her daily and I ride her a few days a week. She reared the...

    When I am mounting my horse, she starts to walk away. i have tried yeilding her hindquarters, making her walk in small circles, and back her up when she does this but she still moves. Any tips?

    Hey guys :) I'm brand new to this forum, and the reason I joined is to hopefully get some help/advice when it comes to my little arab gelding. The problem I'm having with him is his tendency to take off and start bucking while you're mounting, and have one foot in the stirrup. Not fun. Let me...

    I've been leasing this horse for 6 months now, a 26 year old Morgan mare she's never been the best horse to mount. At first, she would just walk off once I got on her but I fixed this. She was good mounting for a month or two, then she started swinging her hips away from the mounting block. She...

    Hello all! I just recently joined, because I've had a bit of a training problem. I live on land with my family in Texas. I own two mares, one of which was my first horse and we've recently (as of April 1, 2011) rescued. Flash is a 2003 OTTB mare that didn't have the nicest history at the track...

    When I first went to view Harry he walked forward a bit when I got on but he had overgrown feet and no muscle or anything so I thought he was just trying to hold my weight. First thing is, I rarely can mount from the ground, not cause I don't want to but simply cause my arms are like completely...

    So there's this TB mare that is fresh. She's been started perfectly from the ground -- sacked out, not spooky, longes, takes the bit, takes the saddle, and acts like a dead broke horse... from the ground. Then, you go to get on her, and she will jump away and sometimes kick out. She has never...
