    Offering Confidence and Leadership to Your Horse Posted on March 20, 2015 Hi, my name is Daniel Dauphin, and I’m a “Leadership” guy. That is simply how the world works to me. There are leaders and followers. While I want an honest and...
  2. Horse Riding & Horse Activity
    I've been riding at the same facilities for over 6 years now, attending every week and progressing as much as I can. It's not an official riding school, rather it is owned by an older lady who focuses on relationships between the horse and rider. I am largely self taught due to this. Anyway, I...
  3. Horse Health
    Hi there, In September I had to make a hard decision and put my horse of 4 years out on full loan while I went away to uni. In Jan/Feb he fell ill and had to have major surgery in which he had a foot of intestine removed due to ulcers and a disease called 'meckel's diverticulum'! Due to a change...

    I ride the same horse every time i go riding and when i un-tack him i always take the saddle off first. The i walk him to the tack room and tell him to stand. He does, the most he will do is turn his head or move a hoof. I dont think he has been trained this way so is this a sign that he sees me...

    I have a young gelding that will not let me near him since the farrier attempted to halter him, then ended up hanging from his neck and would not let go as the gelding ran around the barn like a chicken with his head cut off. How do I regain his trust ?

    Hey all =) I was just wondering what your views on fear vs respect are. I have heard trainers say they are the same. Personally, I completely disagree! I think a horse should have no fear of you but do what you ask because he trusts and respects you. A horse should just listen because he is...

    So we have two dogs and two horses. My beautiful mustang mare Sahale still isn't trustable on the same side of the fence with our big dog Kuruk. I have let them interact through the fence for months, and also with the horses tied/ dog on a leash. Both our horses are fine with Jade our little...

    Hi, After a lot of work and ups and downs, and asking for and receiving so much good advice here, I feel like my guy and I had a special moment today. He laid down in his turnout with me there for the first time and I was able to sit down next to his head and just rub his face and spend such a...
  9. Jumping
    Hi, So this summer I had a pretty bad fall and broke my arm at camp. Ever since then while I am riding at home I am scared to jump that high (around 2 ft). I ride in a group, on a variety of horses, and I need to get over it!!!!!!! I especially get scared when I am on a horse that doesn't...

    I have two stallions, Pepper and Cinnamon, Pepper is a very good natured horse, I can pet him brush him and put a halter on him. Cinnamon however, has a mind all his own! The most I can do with him is give him treats and hay, and that's when HE decides. I've had them for 4 years and he still...
  11. Horse Training
    Hello, This is my first time to horse forum. I hope I am posting in the right spot. I was hoping for some feedback on a problem I have with my gelding. I got him about a year ago. When I got him he hadn't been taken care of very well. He had ticks on him so bad along his mane that he was bald...

    So I have a baby - 5 year old Dutch Warmblood x TB and he is very good overall, especially in the saddle. I have recently moved him to a new barn, and it's been about a month and he still hasn't quite settled in. I have taken him to many places for him being so young, but he can never seem to...

    Good evening all! I have had this 7 y/o gelding by Sock Broker for about three weeks, after I traded to gain him as a project horse. He is gorgeous, athletic, very intelligent, and possesses loads of potential, but he is scared of just about everything. From what I've been told, he has been...
