    I have a lazy appendix quarter horse gelding (2 yrs old) that prefers to sleep and eat grass all day, and never go more than 5 miles per hour when he's in his pasture, unless it's dinner time of course. Very lazy. Also, he's afraid of nothing. Flapping bags/banners in the wind, loud noises...
  2. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    So long story short I've had my mare about 5 years, trained her from the ground up and she's always been great.

    Hi guys, gosh I don't even know where to start! I want to be able to do groundwork and have respect and attention from my horses, but I don't know how to start with "groundwork". **I can't get a experienced horsey person or trainer to help me, so that's out of the question.** 1. When I'm...

On cross ties she either stands perfectly still or weaves back and forth repeatedly. I have tried correcting her and moving back...

    I bought a 7 year old quarter horse mare in October of last year. I have had some success with her, but I have found that she is very pushy. She seems to not have much respect for me or other handlers. For example, she will walk all over you when leading, and is very rude when I lunge her. I...

    So i just got a new horse yesterday. He is a 3 year old arabian and is a sweetie. Today i was out and just spending time with him and rubbing him all over. When i rubbed him on his head, behind his ears, and neck he would start to rub his head up against me. But when i went to rub around his...

    Hello :) I am just starting to use the Parelli method with my ten yr old gelding and I've realized he is very pushy and disinterested. I am gaining his interest and responsiveness in other areas, but when I ask him to give his forequarters he walks forward, raising his head. I know that he is...
