    "If Harry Potter had a little sister, she would be at the Magical Pony School!"

    That seems like an unnecessarily cruel description- don't they know that Harry's parents died before they could...

    These are so funny! I just spent way too much time at work reading all of these :D

    My completely non-horsey fiance came with me for moral support when I went to try out my horse for the first time...

    WOW I went away for the weekend- I certainly did not think I'd be coming back to a raging debate, with a mod deleting posts to tame the controversy! I'm probably red flagged as a rabblerouser now :p...
  4. Thanks for this post! That's why I'm kind of...

    Thanks for this post!

    That's why I'm kind of confused about why my guy does this haha- he is totally fine to be tied up when I grab him from the pasture and get him ready for a ride. It's after...

    Haha I'm not jumping to that conclusion off the bat, don't worry. There have been other issues that make me inclined to trust certain people less though, but I won't go into that. The vet check is...
  6. Oh, gotcha. I really, really, REALLY hope...

    Oh, gotcha.

    I really, really, REALLY hope that is not the case, because I actually bought him from the BO who was acting as agent for someone else. It was on her reassurance that I bought him...
  7. What I've been trying to do to anticipate it is...

    What I've been trying to do to anticipate it is turn him around slowly and kind of position myself in front of his head- that does stop him because he doesn't actually want to run me over (so far)....
  8. That can be said for any question anyone has...

    That can be said for any question anyone has asked on COTH. My trainer is very willing to help me, as are many of the other boarders and the BO, and I will certainly continue seeking their help. I...
  9. Thanks Sansena. He lives in a pasture- I...

    Thanks Sansena.

    He lives in a pasture- I suppose I could find a stall to tack him up in though.

    I'll try that stud chain- I think you're right that he knows what he can get away with and is...
  10. Help with horse who barges past me in crossties

    I've had my gelding (my first horse) for about a month now, and most of the time he is great to handle on the ground. He's pretty steady and well-mannered, and is very good about respecting my space,...

    I'm going to try this too! I have developed an awful habit of keeping my arms thrust forward, with my elbows locked. I'm working on keeping those elbows by my waist and getting a softer elbow that...

    I'm glad I found this post. I've had my gelding for just about a month (first horse!) and think that we are mostly developing a good relationship. Most of the time, he is great to handle on the...

    FineAlready- thank you so much! That is excellent advice and I'm going to follow it immediately. I'm going to start a new post and talk to people at the barn: hopefully I will hear from some people...

    I am a first-time horse owner, and am experiencing this issue as well. I bought my gelding a month ago from the BO of where I was taking lessons, so he has had his current vet and farrier for over a...
