    So I’m a beginner rider and started a half lease recently. I have a confident walk and trot and am working on the canter. The horse I’m half leasing is older, around 23 I think and is a Belgian Appaloosa cross. I have recently started to canter him and I can’t get his strides at all, I keep...

    I also posted this on Reddit to no avail, but I'm in a sticky situation. I have an old running quarter that has lived in a pasture on my Dad's property for 20 years besides trail riding a few times a month. He is a bit of a spooky horse - constantly worried due to some things that happened...

    Thanks for checking out "Fox"! I've had him for about 8 months now, he was thin and poorly nourished when I got him, his hooves are still recovering so please ignore them for now. The last picture was taken 2 weeks after I got him. Pretty pathetic! Estimated to be in his late teens/early...

    Hi all, I am looking for my old, much loved Tennessee Walker that I really regret selling. Registered name: Dip 'N Dot. He was sold by B&R Stables in Shelbyville in late 2010 or early 2011 under the name of "Pablo" although I knew him as Zeb. He might be in California now, but I am not sure...

    So my horse is insanely stubborn, when I started working with him he wouldn't turn no matter how far I pulled his head over. We finally got past that and in fact he's starting to get pretty good at neck reigning, until we go past a walk. As soon as I let him take off he goes where he wants, no...

    My father takes care of my donkey and horse. The horse is Cherokee and donkey is Butterscotch. Cherokee is starting to become obese and I've tried to convince my father to cut back on the feed, but I can't get him to understand. My father is 71 and has had several stokes, it'd hurt me to take...

    One of my horses, Treasure, is 24 years old and he has arthritis. I have been re-training him from his trail horse follow-the-leader mind set and it's been slightly difficult. he gets confused and nervous easily so to keep him focused I have to push him to do a nice even trot. After his training...

    Hi! I own a 24 year old quarter horse. He's an ex-barrel and pole horse, so he's never had to do much more than that, and even so that was over ten years ago. I got him summer of 2013, as the first horse I ever personally owned. Because of where I live, and my mom's view on him, it was hard...

    My horse is a 20 year old quarter horse who lives at my grandmas house, so he is not regularly ridden. He is a bit on the round side, and is always real lazy. Is there any to get him in to shape by exercise or nutrition that would decrease his laziness?

    **Disclaimer: The horse I am concerned about is not my horse. His owner has become neglectful of his care and, in the hopes of bettering his health I want to educate her about what is wrong with her horse. Please, please, please don't bite my head off.** My neighbor's horse, an OTTB, has been...

    Hello all! I was wondering if I could halter-break a broodmare that's never been messed with before? Everyone says she's just a big pet and nobody will ever be able to mess with her. But she's already following me around the pasture, and I see a lot of potential in this mare. What do you think I...

    My grandma just bought me a 14.3hh TBxRP mare. She's 24 years old. She's still in great shape but I don't want to over work her. How much do you think I'll be able to work her (so she still stays in good shape)? How many times a week should I exercise her? And for how long? (I was told by my...

    My neighbor gave me a horse he got for his daughter about 15 years ago. His daughter went to college about 7 years ago and hasn't been ridden since. My neighbor is a vet and the horse is healthy but how should I go about riding him? He has never liked trailers and there are farms nearby that...

    I have an "aged" paint pony that was Evented for the last couple years at beginner novice level. She is getting older and stiffer and i want to know how to keep her going strong and comfortably for the rest of the winter before i move up to a more advanced and capable mount. In the mean time...

    There is an Arab at my barn and he is the oldest horse I have ever met. The vet estimates he's about 40 years old. he has 4 teeth on top and 4 teeth on bottom. He was rescued by his owner about 10 years ago. The problem is, we're having trouble keeping weight on him. He is like skin and bones...
