  1. Horse Training
    I got my horse 4.5 months ago, a beginner dead broke 15 year old quarter horse. When I brought him home he started throwing his head a lot when riding. I had the vet come out and look at him, and she said he was stiff and seemed very unhappy about it. I had a chiropractor come and adjust him and...

    Disclaimer: Sorry, this is my first post. Okay, so I have a 16-year-old OTTB. Recently he has injured he deep digital flexor tendon while out in the field. Due to his injury, he is on stall rest, as according to instructions from my personal vet, and the best vet in our area. He has to be out...
  3. Trail Riding
    Hi, I have a draft cross that is basically bombproof. I trail ride her alone and with friends depending on whos riding at the time I plan to ride. When we go out alone my mare is calm and everything is good. when we go out with other riders, my mare is fine as long as the rest of the trail stays...
  4. Horse Training
    Hi all -- So while working with my paint mare, she decided a nice way to get out of work would be to try going up! I know it's not an issue with soundness or her teeth, back, legs, etc., so we'll just rule that out (got cleared by two vets). A few months after I got her she went through this...
  5. Horse Videos
    When we got Zlatograd (the horse) 1.5 years ago, he was a "problem horse". We bought Z from a riding school, which was selling him because of a bucking/rearing problem (test riding video: ). After a couple of months he stopped those rodeos, but he's still a little unpredictable sometimes. We...

    I just got my first horse a couple of weeks ago. She is a 19 year old buckskin dunn mare. She is a great horse but when she is tied she often rears back. It's beginning to be a big problem. Does anyone have any suggestions on what can be done?
  7. Horse Training
    I bought a 8-10 year old bay gelding QH cross about two months ago. He was sold to me as a kids horse (for my daughter) and is very sweet. He doesn't spook easily, but he acts as if he's had little to no training. He was owned by a cowboy who supposedly used him for work. When he arrived at the...
  8. Horse Training
    This horse is the reason for the post but we need help. This 17.2h, 10yr old holsteiner has come to us for rehab so he can be rideable again. The story starts after 5 owner/trainers have gotten to him and now he's landed at rehab, both for his head and his hind end. This horse is incredible to...

    Ok, love my horse to death but when she doesnt want to go weather it be because shes scared or just being stuborn, she rears. Its getting worse. If I just kick her to go she will rear to. I have smacked her on the butt with the reins and she will rear also. Ive gotten off her and lounged her...
  10. Horse Training
    My friend (Regina) has a 7 year old Saddlebred mare named Dancer. They bought her from a barn that was HORRIBLE. They dragged her into the water, they hit her, they put weights on her, they never cooled her down and drugged her w/ Ace at shows and just before they saw her and ended up buying...
