  1. Horse Training
    In August I got a Thoroughbred Mare for my birthday, she was originally a broodmare but since she wasn't very fertile; which was the main reason, they sold her. My stepfather knew the original owner so he has experience with her and thought me and her were a good fit, she has a good personality...
  2. Reining
    Hi there! I'm an avid reader that has been pushed to the point of necessity. There are hardly any contemporary fiction books that revolve around reining or western sports in general-- it's always english or working ranch's-- and I'd like to change that. While I've never had the chance to get...
  3. Horse Training
    Good morning/evening everyone! Lately my grandma's little pony has started acting up. He's pretty much only halter broke and like a typical pony, has a BIG attitude. If he was a person, he'd probably be the most sarcastic and goofy guy you'd ever meet lol. Anyway, he has this habit of turning...
  4. Horse Health
    Hello, I'm new to the horse forum and was just wondering about some things. So I have had horses in the past, but that was when I was 8 years old. I'm thinking about getting another horse but the problem is where I live, I live in North/Central Arizona where there is no grass but instead a LOT...
  5. Horse Breeding
    We got a Tennessee walker before our colt had been gelded, he has been gelded but before that they had been together. In the beginning both had shown signs of interest and the colt had jumped the fence one night and after then they showed no more interest. So we allowed them to stay together as...

  7. Western Riding
    Okay, so I doubt this is going to work...but here we go. In April I plan on taking Rowdy to Area E in Florida, for the 4-H show, and I have a few questions that my group leader hasn't been able to answer. 1. I ride with a tom-thumb dog bone snaffle bit, but I don't know if dog bone bits are...
  8. English Riding
    Before I begin let me just put out a bit of a disclaimer, since this community tends to be subject to....negative views.... I'm not here to start some war, and talk about how saddleseat is abusive, etc. etc; because I do not believe that it is. I enjoy saddleseat just as much as the person who...

    Hello! I am in search of a new trainer to take lessons from and am having a difficult time thinking up questions to see if they will be a good match. What sort of questions do you ask the trainer when in search of a new one?
  12. Horse Talk
    First off I'd like to say that I'm entirely new to forums.. So I hope I'm not putting this in the wrong spot. The following is a little long but I promise there is a question! This has been on my mind since the night it happened, and since I have not been around horses much [only ridden one...
  13. Horse Nutrition
    So. In my last post I was informed by many people that any cereal grain is bad for horses.... While my horses do look better then ever since being switched to this diet I'm willing to learn more. However while everyone was willing to tell me I was feeding a poor diet, no one seemed to have any...
  14. New to Horses
    Hello :) I've recently moved out to the country (finally!!) and now I have 3 acres, plenty for a horse, right? I've always wanted a horse, and now that I'm old enough and have my own money I'm seriously considering getting one! Going riding every year for my birthday just won't cut it...

    I am going to see a horse that I am considering purchasing in just a few weeks. Originally, my horse trainer friend was going to come along, but she is no longer able to go. I now have to go on my own!! Only problem, is that besides obvious glaring issues with temperament and riding, I know...
  19. Horse Talk
    Ok Guys, explain this one: Why do some people shave the whiskers from their horse? My chain of thought was this: Horses have prehensile lips, right? And I don't think they can see exactly what they are putting in their mouths. Don't whiskers have a purpose? Would shaving them not be somewhat...
