  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello! I recently purchased an awesome QH gelding. He’s around 10 years old and a super quiet guy. I’ve had him for 3 weeks now. The first 10 days were fantastic, he was a bit lazy but I knew that about him. He was used to western pleasure riding and not used for any heavy work. I’m switching...

I have been riding for about 2.5 years and know basic things- walk, trot, canter, jumping, grooming, tacking, getting horse from paddock etc. I have been wanting to further my riding and half lease for awhile now.

    Hi, Just wanting to know, what do you do when riding/meeting a new horse? What should you know about their tack/ behaviour? What should you do before getting on? What should you do before even meeting the horse? How should you meet the horse? This is in the context of a family friend owned...
  5. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Ok so, I got a mare 2 month ago, she’s such a lovely girl, she has such a kind a gentle personality but she is so nervous about everything, like the first 2 weeks we had her she would just tremble head to hoof at even a touch, she wouldn’t let you catch her, let alone tack her up and ride her...

    Hello, I'm going to be a brand new horse owner!!! ever since I was little I've wanted my own horse. I collected models, read every book and watched every movie, I even trotted around the playground at school, imagining i was galloping a beautiful bay mare. When I got older I was able to snag a...

    We’re new to this barn and have been there since last Thursday. I’ve been putting her in the round pen for hours so that can see and smell each other, I’ve also been walking her around on the lead rope. Then I stall her when I’m not around I’ve turned her out SUPERVISED with them 2 different...

    I ride western, I’m a 5’11 125lb girl and think that my 2 year old will finish off at about 14-14.3hands. she’s on the shorter side for sure, I don’t care but mygrandpa is saying that I’m too tall for her. I am tall and skinny with long legs. I haven’t rode her yet nor took pictures on her, so...
  10. Pasture management, fencing and riding arenas
    So, I'm thinking about trying to keep a miniature horse on my property. The issue now is where to keep it. I like on a small residential property(teeny in terms of horse-friendliness, only about 8000 square feet, and 5600 square feet of yard that could potentially be pasture), there aren't any...
  11. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    Hello, I was just wondering how much experience you had before getting a horse? I have been riding since I was 9, and currently have a long-term loan of a quiet riding-school horse, an ex-trotter. I have also loaned (on and off) a very spooky and flighty Connemara, who I no longer have (due to...

  17. English Riding Queries & Discussions
    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...

    Things went differently than expected today. My grandma has been somewhat on the hunt for a new horse to put in with her pony to keep him company. We weren't able to find anything decent for a while, but recently, I saw a lady I know post on FB that she was giving away her mare for free to an...

    We bought our second horse, a 13 year old QH, back in late June. Around the same time, we sold our pony because he was not a good fit for our kids. He went to a WONDERFUL home - we still get updates on him. Anyway, ever since we've been on the search for a second so Red (the QH) wouldn't be...
