  1. Horse Training
    Hello! I’m new here. Posting because while I have (some) riding experience, I’m stumped with how to train through this issue I’m having with my mule (I know this is a horse site, but most horse training exercises/advice can be adapted to mules). I’m also fairly new to owning a riding animal as...
  2. Horse Training
    Hello! I'm new to the forum. I'm purchasing my first horse and, although amazing on trails (which is why I'm buying her), she is horrid in the arena. I have been around horses since I was eight (I'm 18 now), so I'm confident in the saddle. I'm not afraid of riding her there, I just need...

    I haven't ridden English for about 3 years due to time and money. However, I rode English for 8 years before that. I have recently been offered an amazing opportunity to help train a Tennessee Walker for free. The family needs help training it. The horse was treated more of a "pretty horsey" so...

    I just got a two year old filly about two weeks ago whose the grand daughter of Mr Yella Fella on her sire's side, she's broke but not broke to go off romping down a trail or anything. She accepts the saddle, and you being in the saddle and has never bucked with me at a walk or trot. Who I got...

    I have been working with my horse for a while now. She was started for a few months about two years ago, and then had a year off. I am in college so I was unable to consistently ride for a while, but I have been back at it for about a month now. It used to be that I could not get my mare to...

    I have a Missouri Fox Trotter that I'm wanting to be broke. I worked on him all last summer and was able to get on him but due to school, I haven't been able to work with him and now, it's as if he has forgotten everything. I wanted to know how much it'd cost for a trainer to break him. Not for...
  7. Miniature Horses
    I am a new horse owner of a one and a half year old mini. She has been trying to play with me like one of the herd. Meaning, she will rear slightly in play. This is carried over so that when I put a lead on her she rears, throws her head up and try's to play bite. New to training, but she does...
  8. New to Horses
    Okay, so I have just gotten a new horse. He's a fourteen year old arabian gelding. My boss/the barn owner believes he has foundation quater in him, but I personally disagree. Anyway, he has only been with one other owner since he was six months old. Well, his previous owner did nothing with him...
  9. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    The last couple times that I have rode my horse, he tries to walk away from me every time I try to mount him. He doesn't have a problem being caught or saddled, it's just the whole me getting on part that he is making difficult. He is a 13 year old, well-broke, ex-roping gelding. Any suggestions?
  10. Horse Training
    My "friend" keeps her horses in our pasture with my horse. She has four, two of which are used for shows and the others two are not used. Her youngest one (3-4years) has become slightly aggressive towards me. Just a couple weeks ago he went to attack my horse in front of me and wound up head...
  11. Horse Training
    Hi everybody, So I went and saw the mare yesterday. She is precious. It is clear she is a mix, but it is also clear she has Morgan in her. I also will say there is def some draft influence in her blood. By looking at the size of her feet and how thick her neck/chest/and body are. She is a tank...
  12. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    My horse is rather leg dead, which is terrible because it is not something that can always be fixed. Asking him to move into any gait, mostly the trot, is a chore. I know it's not a saddle fitting problem because he has the same behavior even bareback. He seems completely dead to whips and crops...

    I am going to pick-up 2 completely green mares tomorrow evening. Blossom is a 4 year old paint halflinger. She is not even harness broke. We have to slightly tranq her in order to get her to even harness her and get her into the trailer to transport home. She has had NO formal training. All...

    Hello, I'm new to this forum, and need a little help with a Hackney Pony. She's about 10hh and she'll be five, I believe, in March. We bought her from an Amish guy (when she was 3) who said she had a temperament of 1 (out of 10), and was broke to ride & drive was bombproof etc. the only...

    Hello, I am new to here; however I could use some advice with my 6yr old mare. I have done all the training on her since she was 18 months old. We are starting English riding as she loves to jump while out on trails and in the pasture. I have ridden English and show jumped in the past...

    Sedona is a QH x Arabian. She is about three years old. When I fist got her in November '09, she was such a sweetheart. She would let me rub her all over and pick up her feet. For a while now she has had a bad attitude. She is always cranky and her ears are pinned 99.5% of the time when I'm...

  19. Horse Riding Critique
    I am getting a new horse, since Blaze passed away at the end of March. I am getting a free lease on a 4yr old Holsteiner gelding, Khanner. He is pretty beat up but is a sweet heart. The lady says that he will do anything you ask, yea sure right, but my large problem is that she forgot his bit...
