  1. New to Horses
    I need advice: Right-brained Introvert! Hey guys! Now, I have a big 16hh beautiful buckskin paint gelding, aged 9. He has been through quite a lot. Worked as a Bronc brander in north QLD on a station. For some reason he ended up at the dogger sales (dog meat factory). He was bought and passed...
  2. Horse Health
    Hi, all, New to this website, so glad I found you. I have a new four year old paint with lots of "chrome" and his first sunburn (since living with me). He's been outside for his whole life... But I am new to this. Feeling like a bad mom. We are slathering on aloe and sun screen. I ordered...
  3. Horse Colors and Genetics
    My vet says my mare is a Sabino but everyone else says she is an overo. To me there is not a huge difference between them but just for kicks and giggles I want to ask what yall think she is.
  4. Horse Breeds
    I bought a mare about 9 months ago, and I have no idea what breed she could be. She has a very high trot and likes to stick her head up in the air when she trots, and she prefers trotting fast over cantering. Her movement is really nice, but even after training a slow jog is really unnatural for...

    Pete is a 15.3 hand American Paint horse. He's five years old. I've been working with him (only owned him for a couple months) for almost a year now. When he first came out to the barn I ride at, he was under muscled and skinny and his feet were in TERRIBLE condition, he couldn't even walk well...
  6. New to Horses
    Hi The Horse Forum community, These past few years I've picked up riding and I have loved getting advice from other people on other forums, and I just made my first account. So for two summers now, I have gone to a summer camp for three weeks. I really enjoy it and I love all of the horses...
  7. Horse Talk
    So I have an interesting and somewhat controversial topic I'd like some opinion on. For some years now, my primary riding horse has been a bay paint. Like a tobiano painty-paint. Bi-colored hair, silver spot lining, paint all the way. She has won Hunter under saddle and jumping, but I've only...
  8. Horse Training
    I just bought a beautiful 7 year old paint gelding. To make a long story short when I was talking to the lady on the phone about him she said he was "green broke" I drive a few hours to go pick him up and he was hardly halter broke!!!! Not to mention he had not been weaned from his mother till...

  10. Horse Pictures
    Hi all!:-o I finally moved my new boy to his new barn a few weeks ago, and I adore him! I wanted to share some pictures of my own pony boy, and hear/ see some of your pics and stories as well! Being a plus sized rider, you see alot of "larger" horses like drafts, draft crosses, warmbloods, etc...
  11. Jumping
    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...
  12. Eventing
    So I'm changing my cross country colors from Navy/Lime to Royal/Black/White. I just want to know what you guys think of either sets of colors and also what your colors are! I love using my cross country colors to express myself. I want to stand out, but also look professional while I do it. What...

I recently got my...
  14. Horse Conformation Critique
    This is our Quarter Horse x Paint named Zeus. He is 3 yrs old, and we bought him as a yearling as an impulse buy. (My mom was in the market for a black and white paint, and BAM he was for sale, cheap) I personally don't like how he is layed out that much, and he is very forehand heavy while...
  15. Horse Training
    I have a 7 year old paint gelding, Thor. He was doing really good after about a month of solid riding time and ground work. But then winter hit and I haven't had the time to work with him. So he's adopted this new idea that he does NOT have to do anything. Ever. He gets crabby over feed, like...

    I'm going through a weird phase right now, Jake is leaving in less than a month to a full retired life up at my fathers property. I will rarely see him after that as with school and work my father drives down to visit me more than I visit him. (The drive is 10 hours) So I'm very sad that I will...
  17. Horse Conformation Critique
    Hi all! After reading in this forum for sometime now, I decided to join and post pictures of a 3 yr Old/reg. paint/30 days under saddle, I am considering buying. I would love to hear your opinions on her! These were taken today by the breeder, the horse loves to be around people so getting a...

    Does anyone else have a horse with a War Bonnet or Medicine Hat horse? I think that the symbolic significance behind the markings is pretty cool. Any Medicine Hat/ War Bonnet pictures or legends? Here are some of my pictures of Tuxedo:

    Hello all! I am going to look at a green broke, 3 year old Paint gelding tomorrow. The owner would like him to go to a home where he can be worked with daily. She says he is excellent in temperament and has even had her 8 year old son on him! Has never thrown a buck or anything, she says he...
