When I bought my horse he didn't spook, didn't notice anything and didn't buck, now he does all three, my trainer says I need to accept like this, I think something is wrong with. Can anybody help me deal with him?
"@laura16 the same thing happened with me, and my saddle actually rubbed him so raw to the point of blood without us knowing. He was acting a bit off but we didn't know until I untacked. He doesn't buck or misbehave but he was stiff and didn't want to go onto the bit and be round. So I'd look at having your saddle adjusted and maybe a chiropractor out or a massage."
How does your horse listen to your voice command?
"My horse listens very well to voice commands and clucks and kisses. He's very sensitive so a very small no or even an unhappy facial expression will make him back off immediately or will correct him."
Why do senior horses need fall dental checks-up ? Is it absolutely mandatory in their case?
"I don't think all senior horses need that. Normally once a year is normal for most horses. My one horse is 32 and he has great teeth still and doesn't need his teeth often. Depends on the horse I'd talk to your vet."
What are your opinions on draw reins? Very divided opinions on this subject and I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts!
"I think there's a right and a wrong way. I personally don't use them and the horse could become dependent on them when you could have the same results without them."
How often do mares have their period? Should I work her in that period? Expect some quality work from her either jumping, flat or pole work.
"It depends. Every mare is different when they're in heat. I normally just work them the same."
Does anyone know how to get a tail and mane go grow?
"Mtg or coconut oil"
What are your favorite mane and tail growth supplements or products? I have a pony who’s been braided all show season and he needs to thicken his mane back up over the winter.
"Coconut oil! Put it on the roots and it helps a lot. You can use mtg too I just prefer the coconut oil. Also braid your name and take it out once a week, run your fingers through it and braids again. (Tail too)"
Tall boots or half chaps?
"Tall boots are great. And if you can afford them and suffer through the pain they're amazing. It's just the fact that they're really expensive and SO HARD to break in. Half chaps have basically no break in time and are wayyy cheaper and can look similar to tall boots if you buy leather or synthetic chaps. "
