  1. Driving
    Hi all, I don't really post here much but have been a member for a long time. I've always wanted to get into driving and have been for the last year. I'll be attending the Spring (and hopefully fall!) National Drive this year. I was hoping to see if anyone else is going and if we could plan to...
  2. Horse Health
    So here's another question: A horse where I board and I ride sometimes often coughs when ridden. He is 10 years old and has been doing this for years according to his owner. It's at the beginning of the ride once he trots or canters. Since I get to ride him I tried doing really slow warm-ups...
  3. English Riding
    I have been riding Western for about 3 years. I recently went to work as a ranch hand at a horse camp, and I finally got to ride English. I didn't think I would like it, but I really do. I would really like a chance to ride English more before I go back next summer. The thing is, I live in...
  4. Horse Talk
    There are SO MANY reasons why I ride horses, but I saw this tonight & it made me smile. I hope that it makes you smile too. :D
  5. Horse Nutrition
    My horse just loves plain and simple oats after a long ride and as a little treat. I was just wondering if there were any other good ways of preparing them for her though rather than just plain (just to see if she likes them any other way). Eg. Can you add water to them, and what would it do if...
  6. Horse Talk
    Hey guys, I was thinking the other day, what are some great songs/pieces of music to either ride to, or couple with a riding video? What are you ideas? Feel free to add vids or song vids. Also, if you can think of a specific discipline that it would go great with, add that too! For example, I...

    Alright my boyfriend is absolutely great! He would do anything for me! But we are having a slight problem. He is scared to ride my horse. He loves everything about Charlie! He brushes him and feeds him carrots and all that but he's scared to get on him because he thinks its going to hurt his...

    Hey! I'm making a trip from Northern VA to Mississippi and I'm looking for an extra horse to transport to help cover costs. I will be leaving Mon, Tues, OR Wed - It depends on this hurricane. My route is flexible and I can pick up or drop off anywhere along the route, as long as it makes...
  9. Trail Riding
    Im not promoting anything, just have a question about the feasibility of this type of facility. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Hey everyone I have a question, I want to start a themed horse trail riding facility. I was wondering, if you could go would...
  10. Horse Health
    Okay, So I brought Cowboy in out of the field today, as I do every night. I noticed pretty quickly he was favoring his right front leg. Not really dramatically at all, just enough to notice. I also noticed that by the time we had gotten across the field, it had gotten better. I got him and...
  11. Horse Pictures
    Today I went to the stable to feed my horses. After they finished eating, I had a nice ride on my Haflinger. The sky was very blue and the weather was wonderful. Snow still covered all terrain but the temperature rose a little above freezing point. It was around 2 degrees centigrade at noon. I...

    Hi everybody I woke up this morning and was surprised to find everything covered with snow (around 50 cms). I went to feed my horses and when it snow stopped falling I had a ride on my Haflinger. Unfortunately, the batteries died before my cousin rode on my Arabian. In the photos you can see...
  13. Trail Riding
    Anyone going on this? Or another trail ride that goes into Houston for the Livestock Show and Rodeo?? I'm hopefully going to be going on the Independance trail ride, it's an 8 day ride that travels from the Armadillo Ballroom in Brazoria Tx all the way up to the Reliant center in Houston at...
  14. English Riding
    I think my saddle is to small, but I am no expert on that. What do you think? I am a very small person so I need a small saddle, but I think this one is just getting to be to small. It is a 15 I believe? I'm not sure exactly what size, but that sounds about right. Should I switch to a 16? I bet...
  15. Trail Riding
    I am just wondering... I might go on a trail ride for the first time next Saturday. What are they like? They seem really fun and exciting to me, but this is a benefit trail ride and there are going to be a lot of riders and horses on the trail. What is that like? And, what are the best parts of...
  16. Teen Talk
    Hey, I was wondering if this gets on your nerves as much as mine. I have a bunch of friends, but none of them ride english, and a couple ride western. I don't have any TRUE english horseback riding friends. That really annoys me because when they asked what I did over the weekend or how I got...
  17. Horse Trailers
    I am trying to move home to South FL from Deerfield, WI. My horse will be going to Central FL for now and staying with a friend of mine. I don't have much money so I am trying to find someone who my horse can ride with . Someone who will stop every 2 to 3 hours to give the horses legs a rest...
  18. Horse Training
    Ive been training my mare undersaddle for a couple months and i want to get her to canter. She has a very nice walk trot and Whoa. I am a little hesitant to ask for a canter mainly because she is the first horse i have trained and im not very experianced. When we work on the lunge line...
  19. Horse Talk
    Just wondering what everyone finds important when looking for a horse of their own, one to lease or just in lesson horses. Do you guys look for color? Personality? Experience? Ability? What is the top thing on your list that you want in the horse(s) you ride?
