    Hi horse people, I have been having a TOUGH time with my 14-year-old thoroughbred. When I ride, he almost always comes out very slow and sluggish (not the case on the ground or when lunging) half the time he wakes up and moves out very nicely for me but the other half of the time he starts...

    Help ! Last night my 5 year old Welsh sec D gave me a nasty fall after asking for canter and proceeding to bronc all the way down the length of the school only to get to the corner drop his shoulder and send me out the side door ! I am unsure if it is pain related or just being young as he had...

    I’m not sure if it was just one of those days, but I have a mare who took the fall, winter and summer off because of the weather and then during the early summer she got an injury around the time I was going to work with her again. I’ve only had her a little over a year and she has a naturally...

    Hey guys, my horse gets real nappy on xc and digs his toes in and doesn't want to go anywhere. He loves showjumping and also loves to do some cross country schooling but as soon as you get to an event he just won't go anywhere and tries his hardest to not do it. He loves going hunting as well...

    Hey all. I own a few horses now, one of which is a gorgeous TB mare (homebred, never raced). She is 7, and green broken. I bought her as a companion for another horse but her paddock mate ran her through a fence. I have separated them and will avoid putting them together from now on. She is...

    I recently purchased a 5 year old 14.1h grulla paint gelding named Jax from auction. I got in contact with his previous owner and she told me that he had never been ridden and was only broke to lead. Right away I was really impressed with how confident and willing Jax was. At such a young age...

    Please no negative comments, this isn't my horse. Long story short I came into the life of a mare and 6 month old filly. The owner knows nothing about horses, so I offered to lend my help educating him and teaching the filly and mare ground manners. The mare is great, a bit pushy but it's no...

    So, I have a mare, she is 5 years old, cross-breed and she is very awesome. We keep her out nearly all the time, out of reach from the stallion. Tho, last night/evening she was acting wild, rearing and running, still she didn't want to hurt me. She really urinated a lot and there was a bit of...

Sometimes when I'm in the field or anywhere really, he'll come up behind me on jump on me. he does this more and more every week and I don't want it to become a habbit.He knocked me down today and was about to jump on me again near my...

    Hello all, I am new to the forums and I'm hoping someone can offer me some advice. My mom has a 6 year old morgan mare, she was a pasture puff with little to no human contact until age 4 when we bought her. So she was started late and has spent months at our trainers and has been doing great...

    http://www.westernhorseman.com/article/ride-west/2544-reform-a-rearing-horse?limitstart=0 Friend of mine shared this with me, it's pretty good and it's short and to the point. This is only one reason for rearing and one fix for that one reason. But it's a good read. Thought I would share it...

    I have a TWH that was a rescue and is seven years old. He was not ridden frequently before but the previous owner did take him to a trainer for 30 days. When I got him last summer I rode him pretty frequently and he would get spooked occasionally and buck, but he was gradually calming down over...

    Hi, I have a question about ground manners & rearing in a young foal. I am raising my first foal, he is 18 days old. I have already haltered him and we just started working on leading, which we do twice a day for 5-10 minutes each time while mom is eating. This morning after I let him out in...

    I've had my horse for about two years now. He has once been a trail riding horse, so I assume he was once very well behaved and great for beginners. He was bought by a lady and has behavioral problems ever since. they are not intolerable, but can get old. For example, every time you try to get...

    I can wash her front legs with a bit or persuasion, but that's as far as it goes without having her half-rearing (And I leave it at that as I do NOT want to risk her flipping on cobbles.) I can sometimes catch her back legs but if the water stream goes any higher than her elbow she has a...
