  2. General Riding queries
    I have a green thoroughbred that is absolutely fantastic by himself. Hes definitely got more go than whoa, but the work ethic is ten fold between riding alone or with others in the ring. When there are other horses his attention is on them. He bucks, bolts, spooks, and gets himself very...

    I have this three-year-old warmblood. She's a very late bloomer, she's still changing weekly, whether it's her height or just getting less awkward. A couple weeks ago we noticed her hips are very crooked. I had the chiropractor out to adjust her. Unfortunately I couldn't make it out for the...

    I have a 2 1/2 year old grade (Chincoteague pony x TWH) gelding who has come up lame for the first time ever today. I can feel some heat on the inside of his right front leg at the knee joint. I applied some liniment gel, stalled him and called the vet. I'm still waiting on a call back to...
  8. New and Returning members, introduce yourself here
    Back in September I wrote my first post here asking for advice on handling my fidgety horse. The focus that most people pick up on was that I was a first time owner and my horse was only 4. I was wasn't prepared for the flood of "Get rid of her... Get something more appropriate" but I don't...

    I have just started loaning a 5 year old horse for the Summer and am looking to get him straighter in all gates and to accept the bend on the left hand rein. He accepts the bit well for his age and has a willing attitude although is quite uptight so is difficult to relax. I have owned ponies...

    I recently got a new horse (Nero) he is really great but I have a few problems: -When I lead him he sticks his head way up and keeps trying to look at every little thing.
