    Horses are scared of pigs (until they get used to them) because pigs are predators - and in the wild would eat horses. A horse that reacts to pigs or even their smell is simply going on instinct.

    I've got multiple ex-wild horse ex-stallions here. They all go in group turnout, usually mixed mares and geldings. Sometimes I need to do some swapping around, but mostly they settle quickly. It...

    It was the last jump in an ABC combo through a sunken road. This was an ascending skinny brush. I have had problems with skinnies like this in the past so was keeping her VERY straight. She launched...

    I think she looks sore in her left hind, but then on the right rein thought she looked sore in her right hind. Then I looked higher. She looks as if she is sore in her lumber area - between the back...

    I've used canola and other vegetable oils on tack. For the sort of cleaning you are talking about, it works great.

    Have you got a second set of blades? I used a freind's clippers a lot one year and they did this with every horse!!!! I changed the blades to the other set and they'd work again fine. When I went to...

    I think there will be a lot of people who are horrified, but I really understand where you are coming from. If we ride, we will eventually hurt ourselves. I have completely lost count of my falls -...

    Saddles that are shiny are often slippery - that's why people don't want shiny saddles. A soft glow is different. That can be grippy.

    I'd be working with him so he's not scared of blankets being blown around - that's going to happen, so get him used to it. Take him to an area where he can get a little way away from you. Start with...

    I didn't think old fashioned film type X-Ray's existed anymore. If he can't develop them himself, he may well be finding it difficult to find someone to develop them at this time of year.

    This is a trainer called Warwick Schiller. Look at some of his You Tube videos to see the work he does in desensitising and training horses. He produces some excellent results. He has a stick and...

    My thoughts were along similar lines. Why is this okay but puppy mills aren't? Or hoarding 100 big horses? If there were 300 horses living in inappropriate conditions (ie no feed) everyone would be...

    I keep my horses and young cattle seperate because of this. If a calf (or other cattle) starts licking the horse, horses seem to go into a bit of a trance and allow them to do anything. I had one...

    I haven't read all the replies so this may be a repeat: horses are far less likely to pull back if they are tied to a point higher than their withers. If you can get it higher than their eye with...

    My first question to find out if the panic button is mouth related would be around your ground work without a bridle on? Does she panic then? How is your turning /flexion in a halter? Have you tried...

    A longer lead makes a huge difference too. More length for your horse to go through and turn around, and also more length for you to swing at the pushy ones.

    That's pretty impressive actually. A lot could have gone wrong. I'd guess that that guy has driven a horse before. I've had to stop a bolting horse in harness - not fun because you can't turn them...

    But there are TWO round pens at that barn!!! I'd work with horses if I had access to two pens - I'd happily just watch the man who was meant to be working. And he's clearly sooo unfit when he has to...
