    Turnout and lungeing are great, but they can only go so far. This horse is on 24/7 turnout already, and lungeing in snow doesn't seem safe to me (if only I had an indoor... but alas...). I'm not...

    Just ordered a running martingale on Smartpak... It seems like no matter how much tack one has, there's always a need for that one thing you don't have!

    Right, DancingArabian, that's the other reason I only use draw reins with a pair of regular reins as well. But this particular horse doesn't bolt or take off... He just likes to trot Way Too Fast and...

    Draw reins as a security blanket

    I am almost scared to post this here as I'm sure I'll get flamed. Just wondering if what I'm doing is within the realm of normal and OK. I have a gelding who, while middle aged (14), is somewhat...

    Hush now Calamber.

    My OTTB was a great-grandson of Seattle Slew.

    I'm sure I'm not a representative sample, but I do have boarders, so I'll answer.

    My favorite NewHorse query was the lady who, when I Googled her name, turned out to have been arrested for animal cruelty and her horses had been seized by the state. No thanks!

    If these things y'all are listing make someone a "bad horse owner" I must be the worst horse owner ever to walk the earth.

    Thank you Plainandtall. I have suggested to the rider that she try a different bit but she "doesn't dare to" as she fears she would have even less control. It's not my horse and not my student,...

    Thanks again for all the excellent advice. I do want to clarify that the horse will stop if you make her. She actually will stop and just stand quietly. But what she won't do when she's in a "mood"...

    Super speedy horse--advice needed

    Hi trail riders! I have a new boarder in my barn who is a novice rider but is super sweet and eager to learn. Her horse is a 19-year-old gaited spotted saddle horse. She rides in Western tack with a...

    Oh yes... So seat size, probably 14ish. She's a skinny six-year-old. Price range, LOW, mainly because she's six and will outgrow whatever I buy. I will be shopping used.

    I've decided to bail on the idea of getting my daughter her own pony and instead have her ride my very safe 15h appy mare. I have way too many of my own saddles, but nothing kid-size except an...

    1960s horse trailers

    I'm helping out a non-horsey friend who had some horse-related questions for a novel he's writing. One of them stumped me--what's a brand/make of trailer that would have been popular in the 1960s?...

    I think it's mostly the issue of being out of work, lazy, unfit, and accustomed to doing whatever she damn well pleases. ;) My favorite advice is just to ignore it, and thus I will proceed. To the...

    We've got her tied out on a horse lunge line right now... so far no dice! She doesn't seem to be in distress or anything. I'm sure at some point it will happen.
