    What bareback pad do you use or have tried and really like.....or really hate? I am looking to buy one that will stick to my horse and has a sticky seat for me too. Thanks in advance! :cowboy:
  2. Horse Health
    I'm in search of a recipe or store bought fly spray that is as less toxic as possible and won't make my horse itch. I really don't like putting chemicals on him and he is a sensitive horse. I used to do apple cider mixes and it seemed to dry out his coat and he was so itchy. I'm also leery on...
  3. Horse Training
    Has anybody had any experience with this method? Seems like a nice one, but I just found out about it last week so I haven't really researched much. Is it a newer method? Said he got some training by Parelli. Just curious what others think of it and mostly if you have done it yourself!
  4. Hoof Care
    Has anybody ever used Kendra Skorstad as a farrier? She is located in Burlington, WI. Just wondering if you have what your thoughts are on her. Looking into getting a different farrier and like to hear from people before I go with one. Thanks! :D
  5. Hoof Care
    I have a 9 year old mare that has some arthritis in her leg/foot that the vet said sometime down the road could turn into ringbone thanks to the calcification around the join. I heard that Apple Cider Vinegar can prevent/reverse the calcification issue and was wondering if anyone had any other...
  6. Horse Training
    Hi there! It's winter where I live (New Zealand) and I've decided both me and my boy would really improve if we pretty much started from scratch. I'm not saying I'd like to rebreak him or anything, but just, go back to basics from the natural horsemanship side of things and I'd really like some...
  7. Horse Training
    Hello everyone! I was wondering what everyone's opinion was on Parelli? Since the video leak of what can be considered as horse abuse on the behalf of both Linda and Pat Parelli, I was wondering if this impacted on anyone decision on whether to follow their techniques still? Does anyone...
  8. Horse Health
    have you heard of putting white vinegar in horses' water trough and it helps repel fly's? if so, what is the ratio? My cows share the trough so it needs to be cow friendly too. And what are some homemade sprays that has worked good for you? Anyone use Citronella EO mixed with water? thanks :)
  9. Gaited Horses
    I remember my instructor talking about how the gaits are learned and how they have to still be slightly natural and how it must be slightly natural. In reality how natural is it?(Rack and slow gait)

So I did a lot of researching and reading up on it and have found LOTS and LOTS of great feed back on it and also all the benefits...
  19. Horse Boarding
    So my husband and I have been entertaining the thought of starting a boarding facility offering natural horse care. We live in the Oklahoma City area. It would offer only pasture boarding, but there would be small pastures, only 5 horses or less to pasture, with plenty of shelter offered...
