I was disappointed in the comments toward the person bucked off a haflinger. My mare threw me the first time I got on. She was sold as a professionally trained horse and she was professionally ruined! I was very upset because I bought her long distance and trusted the woman who sold her to me. After plenty of tears and the woman refusing to take her back I had her re-trained by a wonderful man. It was touch and go but she finally came around. My trainer told me she was afraid of people. From what he could tell she was spurred and yanked in training and it nearly made her have a nervous breakdown. That was 5 yrs ago and I still have Lucinda and love her very much. She has not done a mean thing since. I have had horses all my life but never one that was abused. Do not be so quick to blame the person that was thrown! My mare was lucky I spent the money and found a good trainer. Many would have put her down or sent her to slaughter. Thank God my story has a happy ending!

I'm 11 years old and I just got a 3 year old horse and she's fixing to have a colt. Will she do any thing to harm it if I go in to take care of her? Please reply.

I'm possibly (hopefully) going to get a horse. I'm really interested in the appaloosa breed, but I am an english rider, and I don't know if the breed would do well as a hunter jumper? And also is this breed cheap? Like Vet wise and Health.

    The Appaloosa horse is a hardy breed, but will require the same equipment, care, feed and veterinarian services as other durable breeds. The average cost of maintaining and caring for a horse can run about $2,500 and up per year.

I purchased a 2 year old 1/2 Percheron 1/2 quarter horse paint, who is 16.2 right now. He is gorgeous, sweet and really friendly and lovable. I was wondering when I should start riding him, he will be 2-1/2 in November. As I was told they develop lot slower..

    When I was growing up we had quarter horses and quarter horse mixes. We would start working them at 2 years, and then by about 3 years we were starting to get on them.

    Sounds like he needs a job, put him to work. Horses do not make good lawn ornaments. It is your job as a responsible horse owner to keep him fit, which means exercise, which in turn will stimulate his mind.

    I see this all the time running a rescue. People talk about fat unmanageable horses. Horses need jobs and interaction. Don't try to manage weight with feed alone. They need exercise and socialization. Give them direction and love or please people don't get animals!

I'm scared! I rescued an arab stallion, then let him gain back some weight then gelded him. He is very nice looking, but sad what he went though. Now he's with a friend, for finishing, but they saw him head over heals in the arena, all four feet in the air, and now he's having a hard time with his rear end, and is really sore. Will he get over it?

    I would find a equine chiropractor and homeopathic vet in your area. He might have pinched something or have something out of whack. The homeopathic vet in our area treated my daughters Arabian and he is doing so much better. He is 25 and a beauty. Good luck with him...
  • Bec - 2013-05-27
    Yes, and definatly do NOT ride him until he is better. also, try this great computer game called Star Stable!
  • Arabian Haven Ranch - 2013-06-21
    He will with time and a good diet, if you need any supplies or supplements please check out our store: www.arabianhavenranch.com

Im from Norway, and love our fjord horses. I can only tell you about the norvegian type since they are bred differently in other parts of the world, but they are indeed amazing horses. They are strong both in mind and body, have a robust body, good health and are probably one of the worlds best all-round horses. They are up to anything! In Norway, no animal that isnt gentle are taken out of the breeding program, no matter how good it may be, this to ensure that the breed stays gentle. They are just as perfect to beginners as they are to more advanced riders. But it does not give you anything for free, you get exanctly what you are asking for, nothing less, nothing more, so in other words, the fjord is just as good as you. Norway got two other native breeds that are superb! The dole is a bigger horse, wery beautiful, gentle and healty. The northern pony (nordlandshest/lyngshest) is a old horsebreed (some say just as old as the fjord, but it has not been proven)and is realy goodlooking and cute :) I love our norwegian horses :D
