    well, basically, Smoochers can do this wierd running walk thing, it's about as fast as his trot but much smoother... i thought it was just him rushing/being his usual unbalanced self, but then i learned that 'foundation' bred appaloosas can do an extra gait called the Indian Shuffle. i sent a...

    Breaking In

    What age would you first back/break in a horse? in the US it seems pretty normal to ride and compete 2yos, and occassionally rising 2yos, though i've always been taught that you break in age 3, turn away for a few months, and then start proper work/competing age 4.

    Greenguard Muzzles - Safe?

    hello our new pony could do with losing a bit of weight, and we thought a greenguard muzzle would do the trick, but there are quite a lot of low trees and stuff in his field, and we were worried that the muzzle might get caught on something? does it have a safety release/snap, so if he did get...
