I bought a 4 year old Islandic in April 2013, I have done loads of groundwork and have now backed him, my question is his feet are so small, my farrier said he is rather flat footed, I have now had front shoes on him, can anyone tell me if this is normal for the breed? I love him to bits, but I don't know anything about the breed. Thank You Carole

    I suggest you talk to Icelandic Horse experts. A good place to start would be the organization, United States Icelandic Horse Congress (USIHC), that is an official registry for this breed. They have many members and I bet they could answer this and other detailed questions about your horse. Good luck!

My horse Ace is part Tennessee Walker and part quarter horse and he does NOT like canter at all. So just give him a couple people.

Just got my first halflinger. She's about 20 and is in a devent size pen with 5 other halflingers. They are all young and bully her. She is sweet and don't defend herself. I'm picking her up tomorrow and she will be all alone. Will she be unhappy being alone or will she be happy not getting picked on?

    I really am sorry you were thrown. Not fun, been there down that a whole bunch of times. You would have thought I would have learned. You can't get mad at a bicycle cuz it ran into the curb. You can't get mad at the curb for being there. You can't get mad at the stair cuz you tripped. You don't get mad at the horse cuz you got tossed. You get right back on and take it slow and easy - maybe just walk in the coral area for a few days. Wait until you are relaxed and comfortable. Walk - and walk until you and the horse are comfortable. Have someone with you. Now, if you believe the horse is ill, ill tempered, out of control - have a vet come out and check the horse.

    Well clearly you are a novice rider! And No they are not! All horses bucked someone off. If you were riding a BROKE horse and riding PROPERLY that probably would not have happened.

    You are a beginner no horse is bad. Bad ones are all only either untrained or mistreated.

    Wow NO! I have been around lots of TW and SSH! But the Haflinger is a beautiful, well mannered, amazing horse! The first time I got on my geldings back I trusted him with my life. I will NEVER ride anything but a Haflinger ! God sent is that breed!

    All haflingers are not like this. I have one and she is so sweet! She tries so hard and she can even go on the bit very well. She is so cute and chunky!

    They are nice. It would be brilliant for you and I have one myself but they always kick you if you stand behind it. When you first get be careful.

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.
