  1. 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...
  2. New and Returning members, introduce yourself here
    Back in September I wrote my first post here asking for advice on handling my fidgety horse. The focus that most people pick up on was that I was a first time owner and my horse was only 4. I was wasn't prepared for the flood of "Get rid of her... Get something more appropriate" but I don't...

    Hi There guys, hope you all are well. I need some advice from you guys on how to train my (almost)2 year old colt.

    Hi all, *apologies in advance for the novel* I've been taking lessons on and off since I was six years old, but never quite settled at one barn or into one discipline. About a year and a half ago I found a barn I loved and started working on dressage. A month ago I bought the mare I had been...

  10. Horse Health
    Hi, all. After working in barns and taking lessons for about 3 years now, I have found a new instructor who has this big AQH mare that I connected with. She rode her without issue.
