    Canter problems with my 18 yr old

    Hi. I'm having some problems schooling my horse and wondered if I could get some tips. My horse has recently (last three months) struggled with the transition from trot to canter on the right rein. She had a new saddle fitted recently and the problem hasn't gone away. Instead of just cantering...

    Turning my mare out with geldings

    Hi there. Ive recently had to move my mare into a field with two young geldings because when she was turned out with a group of mares at the yard she was getting bullied. My mare (having said that) is quite dominant and clashed with another dominant mare in that group. I've turned her out with...

    comments please

    Hi - this is my horse Caff , just wanted to have some comments on her - what people think etc. Been working very hard to try and get her fit, but not sure if she's at her ideal weight yet or not. Think her canter still needs a lot of work but let me know. Hope I'm allowed to post this here...

    Spooky horse

    My horse is fab in every way, but she has got real issues with her shadow. I know this sounds really stupid but it is becoming a real problem. It starts with her blowing and snorting and bending her ear down towards her shadow and then she becomes really silly and panics. She has bolted out on...

    worried about my horse

    Went to muck out Caff this morning and she wasn't waiting eagerly as normal. Was lying down and didn't really want to get up. Seems generally reluctant to move and wont eat - have left hay and some food in case she changes her mind. I also thought she might have been shivering, but she has lots...

    canter problems

    I'm having some problems schooling my mare at the moment. She used to do nice transitions but recently has taken to running into the canter. She used to do a lot of hunting, and does tend to rush and get strong. I assumed it was my position but lunged her as well. Think I will book us in for...

    Am in a bit of a situation at my livery yard with regards to stabling and am just not sure how to deal with it. My horse is out during the day and in at night at the mo.

    what would you do?

    Ok . I have noticed for some time that my neighbour hasn't been looking after her horse very well. First she stopped riding it all together. She asked me if I could ride him for her - I having time on my hands at the time happily agreed. So I rode him out, jumped and schooled him for her. He...

    am I over- reacting?

    ok I went to see my horse yesterday evening. I got there to find her soaking wet (we'd had a bit of rain) and the light weight sheet that I had put on had just been screwed up and left outside the field. I was annoyed because a number of small ponies which have been grazing the verges (the gate...
