    Best answer: You don't say how old you are but I'll bet you are a teenager who used to be horse crazy and is now feeling that passion go away. This is absolutely normal. I've been a trainer and lesson instructor for 40+ year and the norm is that 95-98% of horse crazy girls DO lose interest at about your age. I always know when I see this start to happen and warn the parents. Let's face it, if horse crazy girls stayed that way as they grew up, there would be few homeless horses.

    Let your parents know that you are losing that passion and try to find a good home for the new filly. There is absolutely nothing wrong in the sadness you are feeling but you need to find some other activities like school sports, clubs to help take it's place. Make new friends and develop different interests.

    If, when you are an adult and have your life all settled there is no reason why you can't go back to having horses if you want, adult women do it all the time!

    Best answer: I agree with the very first answer. I think it's a wonderful thing. When I was a baby all the way up till the age of five I had a horse named Star. he was an Arabian and had a white star on his forehead. he was taught to ride bareback and he was taught not to be overly crazy because I was little and not spook me and taught not to bite my hand because I was little and I didn't always know to keep my hand flat when I fed him etc. etc. he was very well behaved and trained to handle being around little kids but my mom gave him up because she didn't think having two kids with a horse was a good idea until she realized she could do it and it was too late and the woman wouldn't give the horse back so it was too expensive to start from scratch again and I got away from it unfortunately . Do it if you love it have a blast but like said also pay your rent and see about affording it after. Learn to pay rent and save a little from paychecks back and see if you can maybe do it on your own.

    Best answer: Other good games center on improving your ground school. People love riding so much they forget how vitally important strong communication skills with their horse are. This begins on the ground and is great to "give the pony a break" from being ridden by three people in succession. Good games include:

    1. Speed (how quickly can you catch the pony, put on halter and lead, do a walk, trot and canter circle in each direction -- the key is smooth not necessarily speed).
    2. Obstacle course (get pony to jump a barrel, walk on a tarp, load in the trailer, put their nose onto a mailbox, stand on a pedestal, stand in a hula hoop, pivot with their front feet in the hoop). You can make this harder by forcing the handler to stay in a hoop while directing the pony "from afar".
    3. Fire drill (practice leading the horse past something the pony is very frightened of)
    4. Spook in place (two girls try to scare the pony (nicely.....) while the other tries to keep the pony from moving his feet

  • Should I use a bridle on my horse?

    Best answer: Hmmmm.... doing what you know is right vs. what will people think...

    Safety for you, your horse, anyone else attending, vs. being the only one with a bridle...

    I think the answer is obvious.

  • Does my horse need four shoes?

    My horse is about 16.2-17hh and is an ottb. He is recovering from a neglect case, but is pretty much fully recovered. He was always sound through everything.

    My horse is about 16.2-17hh and is an ottb. He is recovering from a neglect case, but is pretty much fully recovered. He was always sound through everything. The farriers apprentice works at my barn and always told me he had bad feet, but when the farrier saw his hooves he said they were just a little rough around the edges from not being done properly in awhile. Then the apprentice told me that he should get front shoes and i agreed, so i got a pair of fronts on and she told me that he was just too big to have no shoes on but that sounded like a really weird reason to me. He’s been sound since but i haven’t really noticed that much of a difference in how he moves and he seems comfortable both with and without, but now she’s telling me that once he puts on more weight he’ll need four shoes! I just don’t really see the correlation and I’m confused. He isn’t in too much work, mostly just wt and will begin cantering and small jumps within the year. If he really does need them I’ll get it done, but it’s an expense I’d rather not have right now if not necessary.

  • Helping at stables?

    Hi, i’m 14 and ive been having horse riding lessons for over a year, and i know all about caring for horses, and i’ve been looking at helping out at stables, not for money, just like volunteering. I can’t find anywhere online, does any one know any stables that will let me help out in or around manchester?

    Hi. So, I want to board my horse at this stable nearby to where I live. However, board costs $375 per month. My dad says he'll think about it, and that usually means no because he has a lot of stuff he needs to pay for right now. It's too expensive. Where my horse lives now, I only get to see him on the weekends because the barn is so far away, and I'd be super happy to see him more. So I was thinking that if I paid for half of it, he would definitely agree to board my horse there. I don't think I'd be able to work after school for age reasons, but I could work on the weekends. I want to work at a stable, but I'm not sure if that would make enough to pay half of board every month. So I'd like to know, how much money would you make per hour for working at a stable and would it be enough to pay for half of board if I worked on Saturday and Sunday (not sure how many hours)? BTW, I'd muck out, clean and fill water buckets, give the horses hay, sweep, organize the tack room and clean tack, and maybe turn out the horses. Thanks!

  • How to convince my dad to board my horse?

    I'm asking this on behalf of my 10-year-old little cousin. She says that she wants to board her horse at a nearby stable, but her dad says he'll think about it and it might be too expensive, which means no. It's $375 per month. How can she convince him?

    I told her I'm going to stop coming for a while because of the money, and although I have money issues the main reason is that I want to try a place that suits me better. Place that has better instructors who don't pay attention only to those who give them bunch of money. I've been there for 8 years, but we're not that close. She doesn't have a good temperament and there will also be 5-6 riders and I'd have to say that in front of everyone so I'm hesitating. Also, she will sooner or later find out I'm at a different barn...BTW I don't have a horse.

    I’ve never met this horse before but he’s been labelled by the trainer at my riding barn as ‘dangerous’ because he bucks and kicks when you’re trying to mount. So I’m the only one watching and I’m also new to horses but this just felt wrong to me. So she’s saddling him up and he’s tied up but moving around, snoring at the saddle. She finally gets the saddle done and when trying to mount him he just wouldn’t stand still. He didn’t show aggression though, he didn’t look bad tempered, just scared. She told him several times to stand and he ignored her. So she kicked him in the leg. He obviously pulled away from her. She grabbed his bridled and kicked him twice, this time in the stomach really hard. He stopped moving, she saddled him up and rode him. No problems. But twice when he was moving around he knocked her with his butt, so twice she was in the firing line for a kick and he didn’t kick. He didn’t show aggression to me just fear. After wards she came over and explained that she gave him plenty of chances and he was a pushy horse and she didn’t have a whip handy. Horses are big strong animals so you have to be hard with them or they become dangerous. This event has played on my mind all day today (this happened yesterday evening) and it still felt wrong to me. What do you think? Should I do something about the problem? Report her to the barn manager?
