    Does anyone have a printable training log? I want something I can put into a binder that I can log health info, feet, teeth, vaccinations, etc., and also training sessions, with what we did and how it went. If anyone has one, please post it here! Thank you!!
  2. New to Horses
    I just recently brought home a 16 year old barrel horse. The previous owners were beginners and did not know how to lunge him therefor he has not been lunged in a year or more. I am new as well. I have been around horses and rode quite a bit, but I do not know very much about lunging and how to...
  3. Horse Jobs
    Firstly I'd like to let you know a few things. My name's Becca, I'm a 23 year old mum of 3 who loves two things (other than my crazy kids of course!) Horses, and video games. When it comes to those two things, I'm very hard working and I find it very hard to lie about anything, I just wasn't...

    Okay here's the issue, I've always wanted to show hunter jumper but I do not have any trainers nearby. So far I've been able to teach my greenie the basics of collection and self carriage. We went to our first two shows this past summer, we didn't do too bad. But I'm looking to enrich our...

    Sonya is a 6 year old Paint/QH/Thoroughbred/Arabian mix. She's curious. Extremely curious. She has a licking problem. Licks EVERYTHING. She licks me, my belt buckle, my boots, trees, the fence, the mineral block, everything. She always runs up to see me and greets me with a happy neigh. She also...

    P.s. I'm not really looking for any advice, I just wanted to show off Hippy's accomplishments lol XD Me and my sister own a lovely little light palomino welsh pony named Hippy! He turned 8 this year, but was only broken when he was 4/5 - he is very skittish, green and nervous - it's just his...

    (I have already posted this on horse breeds but got no responses so I'm trying here) I am looking more into a horses pedigree that I am wanting to purchase. I am familiar with some of the names on the pedigree but some I have never heard of. If you could post pictures of the horse or give me...

    There is a horse at the barn that will do little crow hops when you are saddling and getting on. Is there anyway that I can fix this? Thank you:D

    Hi there everyone! I am in dire need of some helpful tips. I have a proud cut 5 year old Pacifino Mustang with some serious attitude issues. He was sent to a trainer for a month and while he got used to being saddled, everytime I rode him he would still try to get me off. He bucks and kicks, and...

    I have been wondering for some time who trains people. My trainer is Harvey Stevens. He's really good... but who trains you?

  13. Horse Training
    Hello. I've been working with horses my whole life, but I haven't trained. I was given a horse recently, a beautiful Arabian gelding name Locomotion, son of IXL Noble Express. He was trained very harshly when he was young and tore a suspensory. After this, he was sent to the slaughterhouse...

    Yes, My mare Lil' Bit is still learning how to ride. She saddles and bridles great, and she stands still to let you on her. The problem is she has to have someone leading her in front for her to go with someone on her back. How can I get her to where she can ride by herself? She is very gentle...

    OK, techniquely a Texas Longhorn isn't a horse-they only THINK they are! Especially since we handle them and train them like colts. Anyone looking for a well broke Riding Steer, we've got one for sale. Super gentle and experienced, He'd make a great Lady's SaddleSteer. For more info & pix...
  16. Horse Training
    Hey! I figured out a long time ago that, for me, the best way to train a horse out of bucking under saddle was to go in a roundpen and make the horse run. I usually put a western saddle on so I can have a good seat. I find that when a horse is running around and tries to buck, they will...

    I plan to take the natural horsemanship approach with my next horse. I'm a big reader... can anyone recommend a good book? Or DVD? Can you throw out a couple names of successful natural horsemanship trainers? I want to get in the "zone" and get confidence with the style of training before my...
