    Hi everyone im a beginner rider who is starting to share a horse (uk) The horse is overall awesome to learn on she is very responsive and forgiving and the perfect size for me the only downfall is she can be quite spooky at things that are new and confusing for example there was a green bin in...

    To preface this question: I have been leasing a 9yr old OTTB for a year for the purpose of showing in the Hunters in the Midwest region. I have never owned a horse, I have always leased / shareboarded historically. Never really showed before due to not leasing or shareboarding horses that were...

    Hi everyone. I have had my horse banjo, for about seven months now. He was very attached to his last owner, and sulked for quite a few months after their separation. He came right about 3-4 months later. But he started to lose condition, the other horse we have was fine and was in full health...

    My horse recently has come back into work after 2 years of being in a paddock. When i first put the bridle back on for the first time she took it really well when putting it on and off, just recently though, i had my first falls off of her which spooked her quite a bit, and after that ride when...

    Hello fellow Members! I am a small-town girl from Kansas. I have been working with horses since I was 5 years old. But my whole life I have trained trick horses and trail horses. I have now decided to take on a very energetic and spooky Thoroughbred Quarter horse mix. I took the horse in...

    Can a horse forget who you are? My uncle recently gave me a horse he had (Toby) who hasn't been ridden for 5 years. He's a little spooky while I'm on his back, usually nothing that a few pats and some reassuring words can't calm. But it's when I'm off and/or away from him for any period of time...

    Okay, so my horse was always fed alfalfa at the rescue ranch he was at. I volunteered there for many years and always rode him. I bought him and changed his food to something different and took out his Alfalfa for about 2 months then put him back on it. He used to get one full scoop before I...

    I have a horse that I mildly barn sour. He is a sweet gelding and will do any thing you ask him to. The problem is that once you let go of the reins on the ground (like you fall off or need both hands and need him to follow) he runs for home. This happens all the time when I have friends ride...

    My boyfriend recently adopted a 10 year old Missouri Fox trotter mare, who needs a bit more of a refresher course then we initially though. Her ground manners are pretty good, she leads very well, but has almost no trust for people anymore. She is very spooky, and even jumped at the crinkling...

    My eight year old quarter horse (Koby) is the sweetest guy ever. His only flaw is that he is very spooky. If I am riding him and someone makes a loud noise he will spring forward completely panicked and stop (only once has he completely taken off). Or even the other day I was grooming him and my...

    Was excersizing one of my fillies when she tripped on something. She trips fairly often... she's a very clumsy horse. But anyways, it was a pretty bad trip, she ended up on one knee. When she popped back up, she went into a little bucking session. Usually she just recovers herself and gets back...
