    I looked at a horse for sale yesterday and we liked her a lot. We think she has potential on what we want her to do. She is a thoroughbred. I noticed looking back at pictures that her withers are way higher than her neck line. Could this be an issue? Or is it just confirmation issues? Does...

    Hello, I just bought a TBxPaso Fino and wanted to know if anyone else has one? If you can tell me a bit about the breed and how their temperament and confirmation are? Maybe share a picture? The little filly I bought is 1.5yrs old. We bought her from the auction as the owner didn't have any...

  4. General Riding queries
    I've been riding for years and would say I have a decent seat, balance, and overall good understanding of how to ride and when to use each position. that being said, as much as I love speed and as much as I want to gallop, it scares me. recently I got a young ottb (off-the-track thoroughbred)...

    I’m in total shock. My sweet gentle giant, Louie (JC: Gone Lucky), passed away this evening from a lightning strike. My BO watched it happen and said he passed immediately, so I’m thankful he didn’t suffer. Even though I only had Louie for 2 months, I knew he was my heart horse. He’d follow my...

  11. General Riding queries
    I have a green thoroughbred that is absolutely fantastic by himself. Hes definitely got more go than whoa, but the work ethic is ten fold between riding alone or with others in the ring. When there are other horses his attention is on them. He bucks, bolts, spooks, and gets himself very...
  12. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    Hello. I have an off the track thoroughbred that I've owned for a year now, that I am training to be a hunter-jumper. Hes a great jumper with lots of talent, but there seems to be something wrong- whether that's his confidence, his laziness, or something else? If I take him to a jump that's even...
  13. Training, Performance, behavioral concerns/queries
    I have a thoroughbred who is very confident in himself when on trail and riding. We recently moved barns and he now stops while walking with him on the ground and will not move for anything. He is not afraid of his surroundings and has never offered a spook or buck. It takes me almost an hour...
  14. Horse Breeding
    So, as some of you may know, I recently got a new horse. He's an 8 year old thoroughbred gelding. I've named him Samual (Sam). Now, this boy was never raced, but he did live on a race track for the first few years of his life. So he is registered under the name Kings Gold Ruler. I don't know a...
  15. General Riding queries
    Hey guys. So I'm having some issues with riding and I'd like to hear how guys have dealt with similar experiences. Basically, my current issue is that for some reason, I cannot balance at the trot. What this ends up looking like is my legs occassionally pushing more forward or backward instead...

    Things have taken an interesting turn as a new horse has entered my life and now I'm in search of a name for him. This guy is a thoroughbred gelding who never raced. He's currently 8 years old and stands at 16.1 hh, so he's a big guy lol. At one point he was introduced to dressage but the...

    Well, the time has finally come that I'm going to be moving my mare to the stables. I had hoped the one pen would get cleared on the property so that I could work with Roxy at home, but that doesn't seem to be happening so I got in contact with the barn owner and she told me I was allowed 2...
  18. Barrel Racing
    Hello, I am going to be looking at this retired race horse that has already been restarted and working on the barrel pattern. It is 16.2 hands. I was wondering what everybody's thoughts are on using a thoroughbred to barrel race. I showed my trainer some of the videos of it doing barrels and...
  19. Horse Breeds, Registrations and Brands
    I have a horse who I thought was a thoroughbred, but his tattoo only has 4 numbers, meaning he may be a standardbred. Either way, I know nothing about his past life except for his tattoo. It is J0130. I have tried looking it up on both thoroughbred and standardbred cites and have not been able...

    HELP PLEASE My ex-racer is driving me a tad mad and a little bit bankrupt! So a bit of background, he's 9-years-old, 16.3hh and an ex-hurdler whom amazingly retired sound! We've owned him for a little over a year and he's been in re-training on and off for around 6-months. He has taken to...
