  3. horse too hot?

    i agree, the jumps need to be taken away untill his canter is under control. because he was trained western, does he know how to do a roll back?? with my gelding (who is hot for about the first half hour of the ride ) i warm him up, and then do canter rollbacks untill hes listening and picking his shoulder up instead of dragging around on his forehand. ive tried circling with him, doesnt work, as soon as hes let out of the circle hes rocketing around, but the roll backs work wonders. because hes my future barrel horse, i know he has speed, but he needs to be able to control himself before we even think of starting to pattern up. good luck! he sounds like a winner once hes got his head on straight!

  5. Post pictures of your pups!

    cobain laying in my lap cobain watchin the pups play super chunk (sydra) and princess T (pantera) tinker belle ebony and two of hydra cobain is our stud dog, syd and T are breeding females, tinks, eb, and hyd are syds puppies and T is due for her first litter this fall. syds not having another litter for a couple years.
  6. he is very low on his forehand, but he could grow out of it, to me, he doesnt have that outstanding stallion look. i would want him to look like a winner right NOW, rather than wait and make the decision later, lets just say he would make an excellent gelding. i would definatly try him as a gelding, as a stallion he wouldnt be the first choice for my mare, (that is, if i had a mare) http://www.dreamhorse.com/show_horse.php?f...horse_id=786696 http://www.dreamhorse.com/show_horse.php?f...horse_id=847978 these two, i think would be better prospects, they have more of the WOW factor to them and look like they would produce exceptional performers. just my opinion though,..... (i would buy the dun if he was higher at the wither, and of course if i wasnt poor!) IMO bloodlines are not everything and are the last thing i look at, thier kind-of a bonus?!

  7. Not moving out from a rollback??

    ^^^ agreed, but instead of kicking harder, i would give a firm canter aid and spank with the reins to help get her moving, a bit less than a hand gallop should be enough, or she might get too strung out to do the roll back at the other end

  9. Uhhmm, this is Interesting...

    the comment about reining enfuriates me for obvious reasons. doesnt have anything to do with cow horses my @##. shows what he knows about it.
  10. photo of overcheck

    DITTO MERRY!!!! something like that should only be use AFTER the horse understands what its asking of it. the horse only associates it with PAIN when it lowers its head, and its teaching them to suck back BEHIND THE BIT a major no no.

  12. tying a horse up with no water

    i dont tie as a punishment. i may tie for an hour or so on a LONG-ish lead to keep my horse out of the way while i clean his stall and get various other things taken care of, but he is ALWAYS offerd water before riding, and then after riding before he is tied up. the only time i tie in the sun is to dry him, it takes an hour or more in the barn for him to dry, but only about ten minutes outside. the tieing all day is mostly used on stallions, but i still dont see the point in making them thirsty. they will learn patience just as well with something to drink, if not better, than without.
