  1. Horse Health
    My horse started to pull his head down and me yesterday. He didn't want to use his hind end. He didn't get his lead changes in the back. He also refused a jump which he never does.

    I have a 6 year old Warmblood X Arab on full loan, who was left in the field until he was 4 and broken in when he was 5. He's been in light work since he was broken in, 20 mins of schooling, a few times a week and 10 minute hacking every now and again. Since I have had him, which has been about...

    my horse hates being saddled. He shakes his head ( the same way he would if he had flies on his face) and gets generally ****ed off when I put the saddle on. Once it's on, he's fine, it's just the initial placement. The saddle has been looked at 3 times by different saddle fitters, the first...
