  1. Horse Nutrition
    hi I have a 8 year old arab mare who has been real sluggish. She has not wanted to do anything, I am trying to start showing soon. And there is just not enough time for me to properly train if she doesnt have any energy. I just want to know what I can do. Please help me. Em:runninghorse2:

    After 20 years with the same sweet QH, I have purchased a new mare. She's a 16 year old QH mare and her only negative is the speed of her lope. SHE SHOOTS LIKE A CANNON! (And doesn't tire out) I believe she was barrel raced hard before I bought her (not sure as she is a rescue) because she...

  4. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi everybody, I ride western and I tried a different horse today (and kept my heels down). This horse really wanted to move, but my instructor wanted me to keep her to a walk. She kept breaking her into a trot, and I was told that I was jumping to the reins too quickly to slow her down. I tried...

    Hey friends! I really need your advices, tips & tricks! I've been participating in show jumping competition for about 5 years now and currently I'm doing 120 and 130 classes with my horse. Even though it's getting better, I'm still often concerned with if I'm going to see the right...
  6. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    Hi, I've been working on my canter these past few lessons and was wondering if I could have some help with my hands. I have very soft and quiet hands at the trot, however I am unsure how to use them when cantering as the movement is obviously quite different. My instructor has told me to move...

    I saw a thread in the english riding forum, and saw the amazing power of the horses jumping. So I though I would share our world of barrel racing and how amazing the horses are and the riders.

    I have an 9 year old QH who is absolutely the sweetest boy in the world - but he has a very annoying issue with speed. As in, lack thereof. :? After a little while of patience on my part, I start getting naggy, and of course he isn't going to listen to me then, so I just end up frustrated and...

  12. English Riding
    My horse - a 10 year old Quarter Horse mix - is a pretty good horse. Except for her occasional stubbornness and being scared of things I can't see. And then she has that little problem of not moving. She only likes to walk around the arena and will trot when she gets close to the gate, since...
  13. Horse Training
    Hey everyone! I have a 7 yr old solid paint mare who I'm currently re-training. Her previous owners never professionally trained her or really trained her at all. They just jumped on her back bareback and rode her with a halter. She lunges well and listens well under saddle at a walk, but...
  14. English Riding
    Usually, the horses I used to ride at my old stable, where two tough ponies. I would have to use a crop on the one a lot more then the other, but I still used crops on them. For the horse I ride (Bee) at my new stable, she is really sensitive. You barley have to put pressure on her sides to make...
