Hey guys! This is my 10 yr old TB mare named Bay :) she is a hunter/jumper and I am just posting on here to see what she could improve on and what her faults/good points she has!! Be harsh dont worry about it cause I can take it. And please excuse some bad pictures she was not very cooperative for taking these... Thanks so much! I know this one is not that great, but well she did not want to stand very nicely and this is the best one I got.... Now for some action shots for giggles SO what do you guys think?? :)
Hello About 4-5 months ago i got a QH jumper. 10 years old, Insane amount of scope and stubborn as a mule. In the past 3 or so weeks every time i put him in the cross ties to groom/tack up, he pins his ears back, paws and stomps and on a few occasion tried to kick me when ever I have tried to get a brush anywhere near his Barrel and hindquarters. he loves getting groomed from his shoulders up. I know this often is the case with OTTB's, not wanting to be touched and having super sensitive skin, being as we have a few at my barn, but he hasn't always acted like this. it has gotten to the point where i don't even want to attempt to get near his hind quarters. He has been doing this when we take him to shows too, so its not limited to home. Any advice as to why he's started doing this or how to stop it is greatly appreciated. Thank You. EDIT: My trainer has checked him out and it didn't seem like he was back sore or anything. he moves fine and is jumping like a dream, no signs of pain. He is fine after I ride him and doesn't mine me brushing or using a curry on his hindquarters. In general he is a somewhat hot, energetic horse.
