  1. Horse Health
    Looking to hear peoples thoughts on and/or experience with stall mirrors or buddy mirrors for horses that have stall anxiety or vices (weavers, cribbing, pawing, etc) and specifically for horses on stall rest that seem to be slowly losing their mind (aka. Dewey's situation right now...)...
  2. Rider Wellness
    I have owned my gelding for a little over two years now, and I leased him for a year and a half before hand. I love him to death and we have a really close bond, but I have noticed (especially lately, the last six months or so, but especially the last couple months) that I have a ton of anxiety...
  3. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Working with a young dressage prospect and wondering if I could get any ideas on how to get him to collect without stressing him out. I know ways I've gotten horses that were already trained to do it but I've never started from scratch.
  4. Horse Health
    My 14 year old Saddlebred is having strange issues. We recently moved him to our own property. This was about three weeks ago. 13 days after he got there, I went out to feed him. After he ate, he looked strange. He just sat there. He's a cribber, and he religiously cribs after every meal, but he...

I offer water before and after the ride (during the ride if out for a long time), monitor respiration...
  6. Horse Talk
    I didn't know exactly where to put this since it is a behavioral thing so I figured here was good! So my horse (well he isn't mine yet but at the end of the summer he will be) Charley works with me at a small camp. We teach riding each week to groups of usually pretty young kids. They tend to...
  7. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I've read a few other threads about separating herd bound horses, and most of them have ended with ' keep them separated until they get used to it' sort of thing. Hers a bit of background: My horse has always had problems with being seperated from his chosen buddies. I can walk with him for...
  8. Grooming, clipping, bathing & equipment used
    My horse seems a bit nervous when grooming his right side vs. his left. He doesn't act badly, just a bit different. He continually turns around and looks at you ( he doesn't try to bite ) and he is continually taking steps forwards and back with each brush stroke. On his left, he doesn't do any...
