  1. Horse Training
    Hi All, I’ve recently bought my first horse (been riding for a longgg time though). She’s only a baby (5 years) and hasnt done a lot. I’ve been trying to lunge her to get her used to my voice and make sure she’s in the right head space for me to get on but she absolutely refuses to send out...
  2. Horse Training
    hi everyone, thanks for reading so I've been trying really hard working with the mare I loan, she's got a bunch of bad habits or little tests to see what kind of a rider I am, like charging down the wrong path with her eyes closed or getting very strong on the walk home... so today I was...

    My mare is an 18-year-old who I bought about a year and a half ago, very well-behaved and generally quiet but willing to work. She has been used for hunt chase by her previous owners and I'm pretty sure she's done hunt chase most of her life based on her behaviour. She's an angel at walk and...
  4. Horse Training
    Question: How do I get my horse to stop rushing/breaking gait, and getting her to slow down and listen? Backstory: I have a five year old Quarter Horse who thinks the only way to go somewhere is to go fast and tense. At a walk, she 'power walks', at a trot, she rushes as fast as she can, and...
  5. Horse Training
    Hi all! Would love to hear some suggestions, as I've exhausted a lot of my knowledge and resources. ............ Problem: A horse who has trailered before, now once she's half on rears backward violently and hits her head on the top edge of the door. She's done it twice now severely, once...
  6. Jumping
    aka. my mare's biggest problem. See the video: https://youtu.be/PGXXeV81CVI She'll rush at anything, even tiny cavaletti. She's a very new horse to me (she's been my project horse for less than a month), but I've known her for a year and she's always had this problem. Several people have tried...
  7. Horse Training
    I am riding an 18 year old 13.2HH pony who had the same owner most of his life. I am exercising him back into shape so that he can be leased out as a pony hunter. To my surprise, he does not act 18…. I’ve seen videos of her riding him at home and at shows, he is a fantastic little jumper, very...
  8. Jumping
    I need some advice on getting my Thoroughbred to calm down and stay on the bit while doing a course. Anytime we start running through a jumping course he gets so excited, throws his head up, and rushes the fence. His flat work is beautiful, its just while we are jumping that it gets messy. As...
  9. Eventing
    I need to get a new bit for my gelding who is an arabian x rocky mountain. He has always gotten strong while jumping. A few years back I had him in a single jointed kimberwick and he was so amazing. But after getting a HJ who made me use and o-ring, single jointed snaffle instead, he began...
  10. Dressage
    Ok, short shorty short version! Horse had a MONSTER DEMON SATANIC abscess and started bucking at the canter and her gaits were all messed up even on the lunge line. We got it fixed but she had to be on stall rest for a very long time. All the progress we made in western pleasure training (just...

    I just want to start off by saying that I don't want this to become a hate thread, or whatever, I know they tend to do that lol. Anyways lets get going shall we? My guy is a 7 year old, never raced TB, who I have completely trained myself thus far. Last summer we finally got up to jumping 2'6"...
  12. Horse Training
    My horse when he turns, it is like his head and neck are lugging around the corner and his body lags behind. No matter how hard I pull the rein, he still does it. when I get him off the turn and going straight, I end up giving him a boot because he is just lazy around those corners! Sorry if I'm...
  13. Jumping
    Last year October my mare Night Heat hurt her back when she rolled over a stone. She has been rested from then till now, just light riding every now and then, but now she is ready for work again. :grin: I do show jumping with her, and we are preparing for a show on the 20th of February. She...
