  1. Horse Training
    So long story short I've had my mare about 5 years, trained her from the ground up and she's always been great. I recently moved and moved her to a farm with a bunch of other horses (it was just her before) and she gets excited about them, all the time. When consistently worked she's better, but...

    Destiny loves the snow. :) I uploaded this video of her last year. She actually looks like an Arabian when she's running around like this! (She's purebred, but a lot of people think she looks like a Quarter Horse!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXNqrL7IugQ I'm going to be uploading...
  3. Horse Health
    my paint horse has a totally white face, and a partial blue eye and its been dripping and running for the last week. it usually is on and off during the winter and sometimes in the summer. and its cold out so it freeze on his cheek during the past week. this is what it looks like it doesn't seem...
  4. Horse Training
    i've ridden the same pony for over a year now. he's very very skittish and spooky and is thought to be abused. usually i can walk right up to him and he won't care, or he'll even walk up to me. i always then give him a cookie and he just stands there when i put the halter on. sometimes i'll get...
  5. Hobbies
    I run high school track and cross country in addition to riding and my coach has been bugging me to quit riding (no way that is happening) because he says it messes up my knees. Does anyone have any experience with the affects of riding on running or know what I can say to get him to leave me alone?
  6. New to Horses
    I just recently purchased my first horse. Before now I was just leasing. My horse has good ground manners. My problem is when I get on her. In the arena she takes off running. Then outside the arena she either will not move or takes any chance she can get to go back to the other horses. I do...
  7. Horse Training
    I rescued my appendix 3 years ago and I have no history aside what I have found out about him myself: He is in his early twenties, has been taught to neck rein, knows a barrel pattern quite well, he's perfect on the trailer, and has enough energy for 5 horses. I am very much a laid back...
  8. Barrel Racing
    Well i have a rodeo this weekend and I was just thinking about my 'warm up routine' that i do right before my run...And i was wondering what all you other barrels do? Like for me its when im warming Duke up, i listen to my good ol' country music playlist and get him ready. Then we go wait for...

  11. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    The new pony I will be riding, Miner has this thing about running away and it's really bad. He runs away usually in the afternoon from people who try to come up to him. Today I was out there for over half an hour and couldn't get him, and had two others help with treats and grain. He still...
  12. Horse Training
    My horse has been known to get loose every once and a while. When he does, he just runs away. If he sees other horses he will run to them, even running past fields of grass. How can I get him to listen to me? How can I get him to not run from me in the first place? And if he does run away, how...
  13. Driving
    I have a shetland sized mini mare and I have all but put a bullet in her skull to slow her down while driving. I can haul on her face til my hands are sore and she just makes this deep snorting sound, puts her chin to her chest and keeps trotting. I have pulled so hard that she trots in place! I...

  15. Horse Training
    So when I put her out in the pasture I can't get the lead rope off her before she runs! Im quite little (5'3", weighs just over 100 lbs 16 yo girl with not much muscle) I can't hold on to her! And now after her doing this a couple times im a little rattled. How do I get her to stop running?
  16. Horse Pictures
    You've heard of a cow horse, right? Well Savannah loves working livestock, but a yearling steer is as big as her. -_-. Well, she found herself something she enjoys! Workings goats :3. She is learning her cues - to go after and make 'em RUN. She is learning to cut the group also, and we'll try...
