thoroughbreds

  1. Horse Talk
    It's my dream to work at a racetrack as an exercise rider, and since highschool is soon coming to a close for me, I have to really decide if I want to become one. I love thoroughbreds and riding hot horses, and galloping can be alot of fun. I'm extremely passionate about riding and I want to...
  2. Horse Training
    Hiya, advanced warning that I may ramble. I am a competent, female, teenage rider. I have been riding for as long as I can remember because my mum has always loved horses too! I started off with riding lessons when I was 5 or 6, and when I was 7 I had my first pony share. I have had horse/pony...
  3. Horse Conformation Critique
    I was offered this green broke 5yo 16.2hh TB mare (no race training or running) as a VERY cheap H/J project - haven't made the drive out to visit and ride her yet, part of me is hesitant to go because if I do I'll probably come back with her. She seems cute and level headed and I like certain...
  4. Horse Tack Reviews
    I have been using galloping boots on my friend's thoroughbred but i'm worried that they aren't giving him the support or protection he needs over fences (we are jumping around 3ft logs). I have heard that eskadrons can cause bad leg reactions and that some of the other cheaper boots can fit...
  5. Horse Shows
    Hi, Im wanting to take Alli to some shows this spring/summer and I want to start off with some in hand shows but i dont know how to present her and google wasn't very helpful :-| Do i have to plait her mane and tail or pull her tail and have a free mane? Does she need a proper in hand bridle and...

    Yes, thoroughbreds, they are my all time favorite breed. I'd like to see yours, all you thoroughbred owners and leasers. (I do think I saw a thread similar to this one in a different area of the forum, but not quite the same) Post a pic or two, their age, name, how long you've had them for...

    Okay, so ... Cowboy. My otherwise perfect baby. 4 year old, 17hh OTTB, with just enough personality to make you love him. Amazing Jumping potential, Beautiful Flying lead changes ... he is just amazing. But for some reason, those big spaces ... just get him. In a small setting, he is fine...

  9. Horse Training
    I'm interested in getting an OTTB and training it... if it goes well, I'd like to start doing it regularly. I love thoroughbreds, I want a project, and if it helps them too, why not? I'm a little apprehensive though. I'm married and I have responsibilities in life. I have the time for a...
  10. Horse Health
    I have a question for you guys. I could probably look through the archives, but I don't know that I'd find a similar situation and I want to be sure so I can budget for it. So I'm seriously considering (i.e, I don't intend to buy any other breed, unless I am SERIOUSLY convinced against it)...

    Hi Everyone, I love your forum and would like to chime in now and then as I can. My name is Christine and I work for ReRun, an ex-racehorse adoption program with chapters in NJ, NY, and KY. We take in horses from the racetracks who are no longer wanted as racers, and bring them to our foster...
