    We recently got a new unbroken horse and I am new to unbroken horses, the colt will come to the fence whenever you call and allow you to pet him but with a little resistance(which is an improvement). He will not allow you to fully put a halter on, I wanted to work him in a round pen but we do...

    My 11-year-old Tennessee Walking Horse mare, Jubilee, sometimes reaches her neck around and nips the toe of my boot. Sometimes when she does it, it's after I've told her to stop when she wants to keep on going - almost like she's trying to get my feet to signal her to go. Other times, she...

    I have a 5 year old gelding that puts EVERYTHING in his mouth. The lunge line, reins, lead rope, myself, everything. Sometimes he's soft and slow and other times it's a hard nip. He knows he's not supposed to and I'll smack him if I get the chance, so he'll grab/nip fast then immediately throw...

    Help please....my new 6 year old Shetland pony gelding has a bad habit of nibbling, nipping and generally sticking his nose into my personal space. While I'm planning LOTS of groundwork to teach respect I'm wondering what I should do in the meantime (feeding, grooming, etc.) He's a sneaky little...

    Tuff, my rejected foal, is almost 8 weeks old. I am working on halter breaking and need some advice. I have spent a lot of time reading and researching methods online, and have been working with him each day. I found an article on the AQHA website that I have been following. My plan so far...

    Moonshine is confusing me. Under saddle he is a dream to ride with the occational "Lets go!" moments which prove very useful while practicing barrels for fun. While being bareback he used to act compleatly fine! did whatever i asked. Latley when i have been riding him bareback he has been...

    Again, I have a baby TB x Dutch Warmblood and he is a very good horse overall, especially in the saddle. He is quite the joker.. he loves to play little baby games and quite frankly, he probably thinks it's hilarious. Examples: He loves to knock down anything and everything. He loves to have...

    We just rescued 3 horses and the owner is coming to get them by the beginning of November. Star my 15 year old quarter horse keeps running at them (she was on the opposite side of the field and randomly trot/cantered at them then bit them) She has done it twice already, we don't know their ages...
