  1. Horse Breeds
    Hey everyone, I'm trying to gather the average height of a warmblood three-year-old, and what height they finished at? I have a mare who I bought strictly because my forever horse turned out too short (15.2hh, despite string testing to 16.2hh). She's three this year (birth date is in May) and...
  2. Horse Training
    My 3 1/2 yo recently went lame and was put on box rest for 2 weeks. After being in a big field most of her life, she now has loads of cooped up energy waiting to be let out! Unfortunatly we cannot put her in a field at the moment because she isnt supposed to run around alot so she is in a...

    Hi there, I have recently bought a 3 year old IDxTB mare that is only halter broken so far. I just wanted some advice on the next steps I should take with her to back her. How long should I estimate roughly to back her? Should I long rein her? Is it a good idea to turn her away for a while...
  4. Horse Training
    My filly is 15 months old, She was totally unhandled when I bought her but within the first day of bringing her home she let me bath her and rug her. She is a naturally quiet natured girl but I think that might be the problem.. Because she is so quiet and bold she is not scared of anything. I...

  7. Horse Training
    Currently I am helping to train a three year old gelding. At the moment he doesn't lead the best. He understands to walk with people but he likes to fall behind, which when we're walking through a field with a lot of other horses that just crowd around. The worst bit he doesn't understand if you...

  9. Eventing
    I would like to do eventing with my horse when we are older and I was wondering what I could do now to increase our chances of being successful in the future as she is only four years old and therefore still learning the ropes of riding.
