  1. New to Horses
    Hi all, I'm new to the forum and became a first-time horse owner this past year. Some things I need to get off my chest and get feedback for, which I figured I would bring here for input. Keeping everything anonymous, as everything sort of happened all at once. I bought my 5-gaited...
  2. Horse Tack and Equipment Queries
    So today I saw something that really frustrated me. Long story short; I was leaving home after my morning shift at the stables and what do I find? A horse, who jumped out of it's pasture and was wandering on the road with a blanket and a halter on. The barn the I work at has a lot of other barns...
  3. Hunters and Hunter Seat Equitation
    I’m just going to go ahead and start. I’ve been riding for around 1 year and 8 months, and do hunter jumper. I only ride once a week and really would love to do more but when ever I ask my mom she just brushes it off. But, I’m also wanting to lease but I don’t know if I’m ready. I’m not too...
  4. Horse Talk
    The mods can delete this if I did something wrong here, but I'm just super mad right now and I need to tell people about this; writing to my journal about this is not at all satisfying and my parents just don't get it. My newly mostly permanent horse, who I'll be showing with until at least the...
  5. Horse Training
    I am trying to get my 2 year old TB filly to move for me and not getting any progress. She seems completely desensitized to the whip or any sort of pressure and will just stand there or fight with me. When I first began doing exercises with her she was responding accurately. Now when I hit the...

    If you haven't already guessed by the pixelated smiling flower as my avatar, I like (love) video games.. More than that I love a lot of the music featured in these games, and it is my own dream to take some of my favorite soundtracks and use them in my own dressage freestyles. So I'm watching...
  7. Horse Training
    To start, I'm not referring to anything health related! I don't think it's possible to be overprotective in that sense. But training wise... I guess this is a pet peeve of mine. I think a lot of horses miss out on a lot of good training because they are too sheltered. They have overprotective...
  8. Horse Health
    So, a lady reacently contacted me and wanted some help with a mare she just rescued. She had this horse to begin with it was a young mare off the track. She was in training and damaged her hoof, they fixed it and then sold her off to this woman. Saying she was wonderful, and trail and road safe...
  9. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    i have been feel like giving up for awhile now but at the same time i feel like i work to hard to give up and spend to much time and money on it to quit now. maybe i should tell you how it started. it all start when my trainer put me on a new horse a overweight 7 year old 14hh mare named...
  10. Horse Talk
    Recently, I moved to a new barn. In the past, I have been at barns where I am basically the only boarder (around my age and who is actively at the barn). At my new barn, there are so many more people than I am used to. With this bigger, "fancier," barn comes some unwelcome judgement. I have been...
  11. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I'm just getting started after a 40 year break and I am reading all the new rider stuff I can find. A reoccurring theme is new rider has a wreck because they were "over Horsed." When I was a kid I mucked stalls for a man who had a popular stallion. He boarded lots of mares and I got to exercise...
  12. Horse Boarding
    I just needed to rant and get all of this out of my system because I'm fearing explosion at the moment. :evil: I board my two horses at a little place that I love and I work there as well, it's not big and fancy but I love it to death. Among the few boarders that come out though is a lady that...
  13. Horse Training
    Whenever I was teaching my horse to lunge out of the round pen, I had run into some snags along the way. Every time I would tell him to "go", he would just disengage his hindquarters. I was looking for advice on how to fix this, when I posted my question onto a website (not this one). I told...
  14. Horse Talk
    This is a thread to vent about all the things that tick you off in the horse world and why. Here is mine. People that go through horses like toilet paper. Buy sell buy sell.....Buy a horse, play with it, then send it off like a used toy...Poor horses should know where HOME is and never have to...
  15. Horse Talk
    Okay ... I'll get started :p First of all, I am really aiming this at adults. I'm a minor. And I need some advice on how to handle this situation. I know it's my inmaturity, but this situation just seems completely unfair to me. Let's kick off with a little back-story. I go to the trainers...
  16. Horse Talk
    OK, sorry if this is a long one, but I seriously need to vent to some fellow horse people. Everyone at my barn is too gossipy to confide in. And please tell me if I'm being at all unreasonable, but I really don't think I am. The barn where I board my two horses is the only barn I've ever been...
  17. Horse Talk
    Just a fun little thread to post about your pet peeves. They can be either horsey or just general. You can post photos demonstrating what irks you but please do not post any offensive ones or ones aimed at anyone. I'll go first! You know what grinds my gears? When people use a western saddle...
  18. Horse Training
    So y'all remember some weird nutty chick telling me that I was abusing my horses? The one that is against bits, spurs, shoes, whips, riding, and just about anything to do with horses? Well, she's back! She took some pics off my friend's page and put it in one of her albums. (Facebook)Here is the...
