    So, this "type" of persnickety, difficult-personality horse generally needs someone to be "his" person. Someone who will advocate for him, learn his quirks, and learn how to manage him. From the...

    Well, every other boarder where I board was extremely spooked by the men that kept coming to our barn. Whether it bothers you or not, the fact remains: a boarding barn is not a "public" space like a...

    Unfortunately, I'm quite sure this is true. When I was a teenager, I remember having to ride or lunge a lot of sales horses in the morning before they got looked at later in the day.

    Actually, there is a LOT wrong with just going to visit a horse that is boarded somewhere. Boarding facilities are not actually "public" places. They are private farms where boarders pay to keep...

    You do need someone experienced in ultrasound to do the ultrasound. I've had vets tell me they didn't think my horse needed an ultrasound because they didn't think there was a soft tissue injury. I...

    Oh, of course he was orange! I'm so sorry for your loss. I just lost my amazing orange kitty a few months ago to cancer. I still miss him so much it takes my breath away at times. :(

    I did get...

    Perfectly stated. I just don't understand why so many people have this view of horses as calculating jerks. As a species, they are incredibly compliant, considering that they allow us to ride...

    It is not appropriate for the barn owner or manager to substitute his or her judgment over that of the horse owner's in matters like this without first consulting with the horse owner.

    I agree, they are all different. But in the case of a novice handler and a seasoned older horse, I would tend to err on the side of giving the horse the benefit of the doubt and assuming that he is...

    Great advice as to how to handle this behavior if it happens again on the line.

    What happened IS very normal behavior for a horse, even a trained horse. Sometimes, something just really grabs...

    Get him out NOW. A barn I was at was doing this with my horse (among other terrible things). I FLIPPED OUT. NOT OKAY AT ALL. Incidentally, my horse has limited range of motion in his neck now and...

    No, no, not directed at you specifically. I just mean that there are a lot of trainers who try to teach proper engagement by just repeating "leg into hand," which really does very little to help...

    I've boarded at a hunter/jumper barn with several competing and breeding stallions. It was fine, they were well-managed, and they caused very few problems. However, none of then would have been...

    It's actually a lot more than "leg into hand" and "leg into hand" as described by most hunter/jumper trainers I have met involves legging into a weird braced hand. It's really a feel that needs to...

    THANK YOU. Someone had to say it.

    This is why I quit doing the hunters and switched to dressage. I don't know if it is just the trainers in my area, or what, but not one single hunter/jumper...

    Ironman (owned by Nancy Maloney) is still standing also, I believe. He's quite prolific, and I've known several very easygoing babies of his.

    I've seen this stallion in person, and he is lovely. Seems to have a great mind, too. I saw him in a dressage clinic, but his rider (who knows her stuff!) was really raving about his jumping...

    Not my horse, but a horse at my barn recently got his shoe stuck in the circular piece of hardware on the front of another horse's Rambo Wug and ripped the shoe off. The shoe was hung perfectly from...
