  1. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hey, guys, so I’m at a loss and I feel like such a failure as a horse owner. I have had my Tennessee walker mare for a year now. She’s 15 years old and when I met her I loved her! She was amazing everything I wanted! So I bought her. Well, a year later and I still can’t do anything with her...
  2. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hi all, just after some advice if possible. I’ve just started working with a gelding who is 8 years old but is previously untouched. He’s taken to halter training well, giving to pressure and I can lead him around his field quite happily…MOST of the time! A couple of times something has spooked...
  3. Western Riding Queries
    Hello everyone ! I recently bought a beautiful appaloosa foal, who will be home in less than 2 months now. He really is a sweetheart, he has a really gentle and calm personality, and is absolutly gorgeous (he is going to be rather tall). He happens to have a great lineage in western pleasure...
  4. No new threads please. Phasing out
    This is my first horse and the difference in unsolicited opinions is overwhelming. From bits, to care to feed to saddles to everything horse related everyone is always saying something different, I just do what I feel is best for myself and my horse. she’s a 2 year old filly and my cousins who...
  5. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    So I have an 8-year-old Arabian mare and I think we need some help. I have had her for a few years but I think we are getting worse together instead of better. I don't think we trust each other at all. We are fine at walk-trot, but when we canter she picks up the wrong lead, and when we get it...
  6. Horse Trainers
    So I rescued a horse a while back, and he's just gotten to be a horse for a while. Now we are starting to train him and trying to figure out the best method. Most people know of the Clinton Anderson method. I'm not a big fan. Recently I found Neil Davies, and his fear free training method. What...
  7. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hello! I have been wanting to start training horses for others for awhile now. I am 19 and have over 10+ years of riding and training experience. I have worked and learned under multiple different trainers, and have rescued, rehabilitated and re trained over 12 horses in the past 3-4 years. I...
  8. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    My family just purchased an 8 yr old gelding last week. When we went out to see him he was a perfect gentleman and even watched the owner ride him and he was very obedient. He was also good with the vet during his PPE. we brought him home Tuesday and I had no issues letting him out to pasture...
  9. Horse Talk
    Hello all! I'm pretty much categorized as a lurker on the forum, though I've posted a few times. I currently have two horses, but I just got two more as a sort of impulse decision. Meet Ellie and Basil! Ellie - 7 year old QH/Standardbred mare, probably around 15 hands. She was used as a pack...
  10. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hi everyone this Thursday I will be trailering my 15 year old horse to the vet and I am a bit nervous after my past trailering experience with him. The last time I trailed him when unloading he reared up almost injured my trainer. I’m also a bit scared because my trainer won’t be coming with me...
  11. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Disclaimer: I know OTTBs are typically pretty spooky. Hiya! I just got my first horse after dealing and working with rescue horses so I am no stranger to retraining scared horses but something got brought to my attention when I moved my OTTB from the first home she had with me (only for about a...
  12. English Riding Queries
    I just moved to a new barn where there isn’t a mirror in the arena. It’s a hunter/jumper barn. I only take 1 lesson a week and am struggling with self improvement. Previously I was able to make breakthroughs and deepens understanding on my own because I could see what I was doing while I was...
  13. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hi guys! I'm writing to see if anyone can offer me some training advice for my mare who seems to have separation anxiety. She's generally a well behaved horse, but she goes wild when her neighbors leave her or if I walk away from her while she's in the cross ties. When her neighbors leave, she...
  14. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    So my wife and I just got these 2 paint horses, tabiano, and the other one is mostly solid. The solid doesn't seem to interested in the tabiano. But the tabiano is so buddy sour that he herds the solid where he wants him, basically needs to be right next to him every step of the way. When I put...
  15. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    I got my horse 4.5 months ago, a beginner dead broke 15 year old quarter horse. When I brought him home he started throwing his head a lot when riding. I had the vet come out and look at him, and she said he was stiff and seemed very unhappy about it. I had a chiropractor come and adjust him and...
  16. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hi, so I have a question. I am going to start working with a horse I have been caring for about 3 years. The horse knows me pretty well and I know him pretty well. I get paid everyday to care for him because his owner is to "busy" to do anything with him. He is a 23 yr old thoroughbred gelding...
  17. Horse Training, Performance & behavioral problems
    Hey everyone. I'd love your guys input on this thought that my dad came up with and I'm considering doing. Basically, he suggested I offer my services of doing groundwork training to other people. The thing is, I've gotten pretty decent with my groundwork skills. I've worked with weanlings...
  18. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    Hi everyone! I recently took my rescued trail mare on our first solo ride (solo as in no one from our current herd came with us). We joined a local faux foxhunting club for a trail ride/hunt and rode in third field, which was walk/trot. She was really good with the new horses until we started...

    I took a hot walker job at a racetrack that lasted two days after three horses reared and ran away, one breaking my finger. I'd still like to be a hot walker for Thoroughbreds, and I was wondering if there are any training programs or maybe trainers that could take me from an absolute beginner...
