  1. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I'm a fairly new horse owner and rider with a 15 year old Rocky Mountain gelding that I'm trying to work with. I'm not a confident rider and he alternates between being responsive and being a bit of a jerk. Both of his last two owners got rid of him in less than a year (didn't find this out till...
  2. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    Hello, all my lovely friends. In the next year, I'm planning on buying another horse.. but I can't decide if I want to look into buying a gaited horse or not. I ONLY have experience with quarter horses, but the gorgeous gait of a Tennesee Walking Horse or the Missouri Fox Trotter is just amazing...
  3. Horse Health
    So there was this paddock with four horses, very not well taken care of. Three have cow hocks, one is very young, but I fear he will have the same fate if nobody intervenes. In the owners defense, he has a lot going on. I have enough experience to confidently say that I can care for these...
  4. Riding and Barn Wear
    Hello! Just a quick question: I've been taking lessons for a few months now and my trainer says I should start looking into half-chaps or tall boots. I'm totally not opposed to it; it's just that I've been wearing ankle boots since the beginning and I'm curious why it's suddenly time for a...
  5. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    Hello! This is my first post here, so sorry in advance if something's wonky. Anyways- I should start with the basics; I'm 21, I've been riding for five months, and I've recently started learning how to canter after only doing walk/trot lessons until I could properly keep my heels down. My...
  6. Horse Boarding/Livery/Agistment Queries
    I am looking to lease a horse at the barn where I currently ride.I have ridden the horse several times and she feels like a good match and I would be able to take jumping lessons on her. (My barn only allows you to jump if you lease or own the horse). The problem is that she does not have her...
  7. General Off Topic Questions & Discussion
    So this isn't really off-topic from horses, but given the thread options this seemed to be the best place to talk about what I needed to. So here I am! Firstly, I am new to the forums. I am hoping that I can get some insight and some help as I (hopefully) attempt to enter the world of equines...
  8. English Riding Queries & Discussions
    Hi everyone! I need serious help and advice. I just don't have anyone else to talk to and I'm at a point where I honestly feel trapped... So here's the deal; I take lessons once a week at this small barn with a private instructor that claims to have been an Olympian. The only backup of her...
  9. English Riding Queries & Discussions
    I know this is going to seem like a really broad question, but I've been skimming through the threads in the Horse Riding Critique forum and I've found myself wanting to provide input, but not knowing where to start. What are some of the first things you're looking for when you're watching a...
  10. Show Jumping and using jumping in training
    I've ridden Western for several years in the past, to the point where I leased for a couple of years and then owned for a few more before I went off to college. Since then I've only done occasional lessons here and there, but things in my life have changed and I'm looking to start picking up...

  12. New and Returning members, introduce yourself here
    Hello y'all... I'm brand new to the forum but know just enough about 'forums' to know I should come and introduce myself first. :wave: I'm hoping to meet some folks to talk horses, homesteading, and moving back to country life with. In a nutshell... I grew up country but have lived city...
  13. New and Returning members, introduce yourself here
    Hello, all! Thought I'd pop in and give myself an introduction here. I'm probably a bit "unique" here in that I don't have a horse of my own. However, I have recently begun volunteering at a horse rescue. I have loved horses for my entire life, but I have never been in a position (financially...
