    I found this after watching a video of this pair being coached. I'm trying to educate myself on young horse development. I have no relationship with anyone in this video, but I thought I'd share....

    I own a 2 yo warmblood. Last fall, she stocked up in one hind. Similar to yours, there was no heat or lameness. Since she was sound, we did not call vet right away. It subsided on it's own in a few...

    Yes, the same here, including the 10 yo son! It's taken a while, but my friend/trainer helped me find a horse to 1/2 lease. After three rides it's starting to feel better. I've never shown...

    Years ago before we had cell phones I sometimes rode alone and was always a bit anxious. We have bears, moose and rough country. While it was kind of liberating to make it back just fine, I always...

    For me, a yearling seemed like a better purchase than a foal. I don't have the eye to evaluate foals anyway. I wanted to support a US breeder and buy a well-bred filly. The dam is a bundeschampionat...

    This makes me remember that dropping the stirrup was the only way we could get my mom back on when she came off in deep snow. Leaving the narrow trail we kept open to find something to stand on...

    The worst thing about cats is the bird-killing if you let them out. Our tuxedo male is affectionate and calm. He follows us to bus stop, on walks. I've figured out a way to tell him to stay home,...

    The yearling filly I purchased sight-unseen had a couple nicely positioned conformation shots and a very brief homemade video. When I expressed interest and they became available, I was emailed...

    I was in an english saddle when my horse fell. I lurched forward, but then bounced out of the stirrups to the side and did my best to roll away as she rolled on her side toward me. We were both...

    It has taken me over 20 years to get back to owning my own horse. I took a few lessons when I could. Sometimes I wish I had done more along the way, but being very busy with college/med...

    I visited the Michigan farm and saw him in about 2000. He was an impressive, very large Arabian. There were nice babies, but I really didn't know enough to truly evaluate. I hope the mare you're...

    You are young and can wait a while before deciding. Remember there is an option of freezing embryos or eggs. It is far better to plan ahead rather than decide when you are 40 that you really want...

    That's great, congrats! I only did one ride/race back in about 1987 with my dad on our horses. I think it was 30 miles. So much fun!

    I'm just learning about bloodlines and appreciate the information on these mares. Looking at my filly's pedigree, I notice mares with Vb. Pr. St., St. Pr., and Elite. I don't know what these...

    It's been a while since I was taking care of horses, but we never clipped and blanketed routinely around 10 F. The horses had three-sided shelter. After long trail rides through the snow they were...
