    Show Name Help!

    Looking for a cute show name for a black Arab mare. She's super sweet, has a star on her head, and always willing to do her job! Any names would be considered, thanks!

    She sure is, before riding, she's pretty grumpy about brushing, whether it's a curry comb or a soft brush she kinda pins her ears but doesn't do much.

    As far as discipline goes, I used to pop her...

    Girthy vs Ulcers

    Okay, so long story short. My mare is girthy, she hasn't always been girthy. Before it was too bad, she'd only bite at the girth maybe 1/5 rides. For other reasons we had her scoped for ulcers, after...

    I agree with the 24/7 hay posts above. Ulcer's flare all day and the best thing to bring down the stomach acid is hay. Doesn't necessarily matter the hay at this point, but get hay nets, nibble nets,...

    We don't see buns in the South Carolina show circuit. I have seen them before at shows but not often enough. Most people look at point fingers (isn't that horrible?) Like said in another post, people...

    I think it's going to take a lot of time for your horse to understand what you're trying to do. It just takes time. I think gymnastics are a good place to start, BUT the best advice I can give you is...

    I have a mare that as well gives the middle finger often when she's not in a good mood, or doesn't like what we're working on. She'll casually buck if you spur her hard, or yank her in the face on...

    My mare's been in aluminum since I've had her for the last two years. She moves great in them and I like them because they're lighter. But that's my opinion.

    My trainer taught me to count out loud during a canter. She would have me settle into a steady medium canter, we'd be prepared to go in for a line, and she'd be able to say "3, 2, 1" before the...

    One thing to think about before trying any of those poling methods is that you can cause your horse to start refusing. It's happened before, and they're extremely smart animals, smarter than us. ugh!

    Ugh, yes. My mare absolutely hates me sometimes! I can be riding her bareback one day, and the next day she'll go out of her way to try and stomp on my feet or kick me in the shin. Her name's Hannah...
