    Hi everyone! So I am currently looking to adopt this 3-year-old mustang mare. She is out of Adobe Town Wyoming and apparently 15.2hh at three years old. I'm not looking to do anything crazy with her, I just want to experience working with a mustang. However, I do want to make sure her...
  2. English Riding
    So I recently started looking at this mustang named Mo. He is 7 years old and 15hh. He seems like the perfect horse for me. He looks to have really good movement and a decent jump. He also looks really brave! He's only been saddle trained for about 2 years and has recently started jumping. I...

    About three weeks ago I bought my first horse, a 2011 BLM Mustang mare. She is my pride and joy. :gallop: Sadly when I bought her they told me she was broke under saddle, that was not totally true. She was drugged throughout the demo ride and now has to go to the trainer for a month to...
  5. Horse Breeds
    I've been looking into getting a kiger mustang/quarter horse cross. She was an accident (breeder intended only to breed kiger mustang to kiger mustang, but his 20-something quarter horse mare made her own decisions and got in on the action). But I'm wondering if anyone has any experiences with...

    I want to gain my knowledge of training horses on my own time(yes I will be also having help from experienced people) and watch a documentary about a Mustang being taken from being scared of halters to a well behaved ride-able horse. In other words a Mustang breaking/starting documentary from...

    I started looking for a haflinger about a month ago. There were a handful in my state in my price point, and I looked at 2 with appointments set for 3 more. I saw a posting for a 17 year old mustang mare, and something about her just made me want to see her. She was only half an hour away and I...

  12. Horse Law
    Hi guys, I've just sort of been stalking the forums for a bit and haven't really seen a situation close enough to mine so I thought I'd post and get some advice/feedback. I don't know a whole lot about BI laws, or mustangs. I'm in CO, I know Brand Inspection is required. I might be stupid to...
  13. Horse Training
    Hello, I'm having a problem with my mustang while lunging him on a lunge line. He'll be going around just fine at a walk or trot, but if I ask for a lope, he'll turn around and take off the other direction. Say he's going to the left and I ask him to lope, he'll spin to the right and take off...

  17. Horse Health
    I have a three and a half year old Mustang and I just recently noticed that he has a slightly crested neck. It's not very noticeable or large, but if I shake it, it goes back and forth easily (if you get what I'm saying). He's very fit, he doesn't have any other fatty spots on him, and he's got...

  20. Horse Training
    Back in November I adopted an 18 month old Mustang gelding. He had a soft eye, good conformation, and was curious enough to step up to the fence and sniff my palm/let me stroke his nose. The first two months were fantastic: he took everything in easy strides, respected my space, and learned...
