    My old QH was scared of burdock leaves when the wind picked up and you could see the underside of them (white). We had many interesting rides on the trail with him jumping over patches of burdocks...

    I just wanted to say that no matter who is right or wrong, horses that kick people in the head for whatever reason do not end up in a good place.

    Go speak to your zoning authority first and have the legal description of the property with you, this is absolutely the first step in finding out what you are allowed to do. If you do not intend to...

    I saw a small dog get killed at a horse show when the owner thought it was just fine to tie a dog to a horse trailer with a lunge line in an area horses were passing back and forth to go into the...

    You sold him! You lose the right to decide what happens to him. If you had any concerns about the horse's future welfare you should have kept him period.

    I'm of the opinion that every horse has something that has to be worked on. There is no such thing as the 'perfect' horse. I've ridden many horses on trails and this guy reminds me of one of the...

    I agree with you. I had exactly that scenario once. Had a lovely paint mare that I allowed out on 30 day trial and had her returned for no other reason than "she wanted to keep her options open".
