  1. Horse Training
    Hello!! I just wanted to make a thread to pick some of your brains a little bit. (Somewhat irrelevant background info: When I was in high school, I used to buy cheap two year olds from local breeders and train them to sell to nice people. Most of these colts had been super well-handled since...
  2. Horse Talk
    Hey everyone, so as the title states, I am currently in the process of adopting a mustang. My goal is to purchase/adopt a young filly (hopefully to mature around 16hh)with limited human exposure and spend the next year training her. This is a dream I have had for a while, and I am finally at the...
  3. Horse Training

  4. Horse Talk
    We're not selling or advertising anything, this is for a school project - so I don't think this is against the rules. If it is, or if there's a better place for this, please let me know. Here is the link - http://goo.gl/forms/rfRZXLaJ2R Thank you so much! EDIT: BTW, it'll only take a minute...
  5. Horse Nutrition
    I want to start a research project on the comparison of most if not all horse feeds, excluding hay and other forages. This is just a comparison of the guaranteed analysis, it won't involve any horses, although it may involve what the effects of certain aspects in the analysis might have on the...
  6. Horse Talk
    I am presenting my yearly 4h presentation tomorrow, it is about how the whorls on a horses face can predict their personality. I am really nervous,:-| dose anybody have tips for public speaking?
  7. Horse Talk
    I have found a lovely winter project pony (not to keep for my self) , but she is only 11.1hh and I am 5ft and weigh 7 stones. However I shes a heavy set Welsh Sec A. Just thought I'd get an opinion on this as its been ages since I rode diddy ponies :D.
  8. Barn Maintenance
    For my college class I have to come up with a barn proposal and present it. Its going to be really long and I thought I could get a start on it by looking up stables and stuff to "buy" I can buy any stable but have to make a profit in 5 years... I looked for over 3 hours today and couldn't find...
  9. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    So, this is my 2 year-old Thoroughbred/Dutch Warmblood filly, Net, sired by Karsh (Secret Secretary). I’ve owned her for about a year and she’s an extremely sweet filly. She’s currently 15HH. She’s going to be the first horse I’ve trained on my own. In the future, I’d like to do hunter/jumper...
  10. Horse Talk
    I frequently see that people are taking unwanted/unpurchased horses from auctions and things, or saving them from slaughter. I was wondering if anyone knows how that works? I live in MN, if anyone knows about any good resources, I'd love your input! I'm just looking for another project horse...
  11. Horse Talk
    I've been really wanting to get a project pony for my last few years of 4H, and I've been considering rescue. I would definitely like one who's been handled; I don't think I'm ready for an untouched horse yet. (I have helped my trainer with lots of greenies and I'm not new to stuff like that.)...

  13. Horse Grooming
    I need a photo example of a banded mane for a 4H project I'm doing. I also need a pic of somebody bathing their horse. I'm making a poster, and I have a few of the pics I need of my own horses, but there are a few that I don't have. No copyrighted pics please because I don't want to get in...
  14. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    So, I've been riding this 5 year old 16.2hh Quarter Horse gelding regularly for a friend who wants to make sure he's well behaved before she works up the courage to ride him... and I hate to say it, but I love riding him. As you may know, I've had only ponies under 14hh my whole life. I've...

  16. Horse Talk
    I've been trying to find an inexpensive, large, young, green broke project pony but they seem to be getting scooped up every time I am about to go look at one! I want a green broke, relatively "fancy" pony because I want to be able to train it, show it and then resell it for a profit. Any ideas...
  17. General Off Topic Discussion
    Hey everyone, if you don't think this belongs here, please feel free to move it. I am joining my schools BPA (Business Professionals of America) and am going to do a project this year. For it I want to make a little movie with riding clips and things like that in it, but I'm not sure what to do...

I ride English, I event and show in the jumpers, equitation, and occasionally hunters around the 3'3" height. I need something on the younger side, under 7...

    Thought some of you readers might like this "Origins of Horse Breeds" poster project. It's fun to color the different breeds of horses and match them to where they originated. The template is here: History for Children: King of the Wind
