    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.

    i have a beautiful appaloosa horse that has had 6 children i have been there the whole time so don't be afraid

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.

    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.
  • Dream Giver - 2013-08-21
    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:
