    G'day. I'm looking for ideas of tricks to teach my mare. I'd love it if people could comment some trick suggestions and best methods of teaching said trick/s. Would love some tips also on learning to ride bareback. I have never done so before, but my mare just broke her saddle and it'll take a...

    Yeah its a gross subject, but horses do it and I'm having an issue with it. :) My gelding is a great boy and lets just say very clean in his special area. I don't care if he drops around me when we are working, but when I'm teaching him tricks or trying to show someone his tricks and take...

    I have an eight month old foal who is beyond amazing. She comes running to a whistle and adores human attention. She was born on our property, her dam was an auction horse we purchased who came pregnant. We have been playing with her since she was a couple hours old. We haltered her for the...

    Hi! I own a 24 year old quarter horse. He's an ex-barrel and pole horse, so he's never had to do much more than that, and even so that was over ten years ago. I got him summer of 2013, as the first horse I ever personally owned. Because of where I live, and my mom's view on him, it was hard...

    First off a little background about my horse. Indy is a 21 year old dutch warmblood. He was imported from Europe when he was younger, and lived mostly at big show barns doing hunter shows. When he was about 15, he was sold to a middle aged woman who had little horse experience. After a horrible...

    Just some tips to make life easier, share your own :) :arrow: For a really glamourous show tail, spray a little Mr. Sheen through it. Helps separate the hairs and really makes it glisten. :arrow: Round nylon mesh body scrubbers available at chemists and supermarkets (the kind sold with liquid...

  12. Horse Training
    Hello! I'm in the process of training my green horse, and need some new ideas! She can currently walk, trot, and lope. I am working on getting her to pick up her right lead and we are continuously working to get her collected. She can back up quickly on cue, side pass, and respond to leg...
  13. Horse Riding Critique
    I started teaching Indie how to do a bow originally to help stretch her back before rides, we did a little bit along with her usual carrot stretches, and then in a few days she was loose enough I saw she could bow pretty easily. So we turned it into a trick. :lol: I tried to find any risk...

    My friend and I have starting teaching our horses to ride bridle-less, don't worry we didn't just go out and take off the bridle, we still have them on. Now we're in a halter and lead rope, the lead rope is the reins, tied to the other side of the halter. I was wondering, where to we go from...
  15. Horse Grooming
    :lol:I am looking to try something new to get my horse looking spic and span for the shows coming up. I am wondering if any of you have any tricks or things that you do which are not popular, but which work. For example, I use white vinegar on stains to make them come out on my horse's...

    I'm trying to get my dog into the movies. I made this video of him doing some of the tricks that he knows. There is also a bit of my old agility clips. I've already sent this video into a couple of animal agencies. FYI I don't think that the music matches the mood of the video. But youtube was...

    I have often done things like round the world and half scissors when riding. I know that half scissors is when you take your feet out of the stirrups, put your hands on the pommel, lean forward, swing round and put your right hand on the cantle so you are sort of hanging off the saddle as if...
