  1. Gaited Horses
    So I really liked doing this with warmbloods and thought I would put this out here lol. I personally LOVE gaited horses, they are SO smooth and easy to sit / post to (in my opinion at least). This girl who rides one of the gaited horses at my barn, his gaits make her seat look quite wonderful...
  2. Horse Talk
    Hi sorry if this is a little off topic for this forum but I need some opinions. I'm currently in my last year of sixth form (end of highschool for Americans) and am going into University next year. I had a perfect plan of doing a Japanese language degree but suddenly these past few weeks that...
  3. Leasing, Loaning, Buying, Rescuing
    I've posted something like this a few months ago, but this time I have a different set of mares to choose between: the big draft or appaloosa. The draft has a big canter, as drafts do, and it's not something I'm entirely comfortable with- certainly something I've gotten used to, though, and I...
  4. 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...
  5. Barrel Racing
    Hello, I am going to be looking at this retired race horse that has already been restarted and working on the barrel pattern. It is 16.2 hands. I was wondering what everybody's thoughts are on using a thoroughbred to barrel race. I showed my trainer some of the videos of it doing barrels and...
  6. Horse Talk
    Hello everyone :) I just got a 6 month old filly today and there are two ponies that are on the property already that belong to my grandma. I'm curious on you're guys opinion on how to introduce them to each other, as my grandma is worried about a few things and I'm taking her concerns into...
  7. Stallions and Broodmares
    May 2014 stud colt. 14.2 right now. Extremely smart and easy to work with, and I'm considering keeping him as a stallion. Is anyone familiar with these lines? I know the OSU stud, and that the mare is from the Haythorn ranch in Nebraska. What exactly does that all mean, in terms of what he is...
  8. Horse Health
    Hey guys! So, I'm looking for a great joint supplement for one of my geldings, but there's a big story involved, so let me tell you that first. :) Last Novemeber, my QH gelding Mateo was locked outside in a paddock, until I could get my mare into her stall to feed her dinner. Mateo go...
  9. Horse Talk
    I noticed this in several different places with different people. One person has an opinion and others who disagree come and rain fire on that person. I have experienced it too. I've had my comments deleted because my opinion or advice didn't match up to whoever made the video, or I was called...
  10. Horse Health
    Hi! I've owned my pony Arrow for a while now, and his owners told us he was around ten, but we're planning on having the equine dentist out soon to tell us if this is true because, quite frankly, I think he's a bit younger than that. I was checking out his teeth today, and they're pearly whites...
  11. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    ive heard alot of mixed things about cantering a gaited horse, in my opinion i think its great for them, and if they love it than why not?
  12. Horse Talk
    It has recently been brought to my attention that my 5 year old appendix mare could be pregnant. When I got her in mid June this year she was pretty thin and under weight but with some good feed she quickly put on the pounds... A LOT. Now she has had her feed cut in half for about a month and...
  13. Horse Talk
    Hi, Just to clarify, I'm extremely new to HorseForums. I live in a suburban area and am looking for an area to agist my horse, but I have some questions. What are the priorities/responsibilities for the owner of the horse? What does the owner of the property generally commit to? And please...
  14. Show Jumping and using jumping in training
    My mare loves jumping and she is still green at jumping, but has been coming along nicely. I've never ridden another horse that exaggerates their jump so much, it doesn't matter if the jump is big or small. We've jumped them numerous times and she never hesitates at them so I don't think she's...
  15. Horse Talk
    Need an opinion on good horse height. I'm 5'8/5'9, lightweight, and I ride western reining. As quarter horses are a generally small breed (or most of the one's I've come across anyway!) I usually ride smaller horses, but love big horses. Because I'm tall and slim though, I've been told I look...
  16. Horse Talk
    As some of you know, I am between states right now. My parents live in Texas, while I spend half of my time there and half of my time in Arkansas. My mom & step dad just bought a place in Texas that has a few acres on it, and they are talking about buying me a horse to put on it. While my mom...
  17. Horse Talk
    I'm recently engaged, and I've been thinking of ways to make my wedding really personal and unique. I'm not getting married for a few years (waiting for my fiance to get out of the Marines), so I still have plenty of time to plan. Anyway, I was thinking of including my horse in the wedding in...
