  1. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    I have heard both of them, but what's the difference, if there even is a difference? Thanks!
  2. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    My POA has problems growing a mane. It's like 2 inches long until like 1/5 of the way up his neck, then it's normal length (I'd say a good 8") but with some short hairs that still stick up. With upcoming shows, I want him to look good and put together. I'm aware that the common western horse...
  3. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    My AQHA gelding has the thickest black mane, with considerable length! It is absolutely gorgeous but I would love to keep it tidier as he always seems to play in the burrs! Also, since it is black, on the hotter days it causes the poor guy to sweat pretty badly beneath it. I have been told to...

    My horse absolutely hates having his mane pulled. He shakes his head and backs up whenever I try to do it. I would like to just leave it be, but the show season is coming up and I have to do it. I recently ordered a mane trimmer/thinner comb online but am not sure how to use it. If anybody has...
  5. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    One of the horse's at the barn continuously pulls on the bit in his mouth and he will tilt his head to the side or even sometimes turn his head completely even on a loose rein. The bit he has is a Korsteel Sweet Iron Full Cheek Snaffle so its not a very powerful bit so I figured the bit isn't...
  6. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Been working with a stubborn mare. She is spoiled at her house and has learned to grab hold of her snaffle bit and jerk her head to pull the reins out of the riders hand so that she can stop, drop her head, and eat. Since she came to me, I have been riding her in a 4 knot training rope halter...
  7. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Ok so I just got a mini mule, Sampson. He rides and drives. He is very naughty at times. I drive him and he will refuse to turn and when he gets angry, he will run off with me and I have to haul him into a ditch by doing a one rein stop. He will LAUNCH over puddles and there is really nothing I...
  8. English Riding Queries & Discussions
    Hey guys! i wasn't sure where to put this but this seemed like a good spot. sorry if it's not I have a NSH (1/2 Arab, 1/2 Saddlebred) that I will be showing in jumping, dressage, hunter under saddle, etc. My question is should I keep her beautiful long mane or not? I know how to do a...
  9. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    Hey there! I don't understand what it is to pull a mane. If someone could explain, and add in why it is done and what do you get out of it... that would be nice. :) Happy New YEAR! :D
  10. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    My horse's mane is really thin, so I can't pull his mane. It needs to be shorter so I can braid it for shows, so what do I do? People have suggested cutting it (vertically, of course!!), but others say not to. What do you think?
