I have lots of friends and family who are pitching in and helping me. I have recently bought a new horse to start sorting team roping and eventually would like to get into tie down roping the horse was worked in a feed lot he is a 5 year old geilding and he works great when you get on him I have a few problems with him. I was hoping you could give me some advice on and was wondering if there was a way I could email you or get in touch with you if you would be interested in helping.

I can see the horses problem she was scared thinking she was in danger and then she put her rider in danger .. I have rode her and she beautiful but she has the problem, we have never treated her wrong.. people are telling she is dangerous and needs to be put down. what do I do? I am thinking to sell her but some friends think I am doing the wrong thing.
    Cheers Amanda

      Hey, I would suggest taking the pony to a horse rehabilitation center or rescue center. It sounds as if your pony has had a bad experience with jumps. Probably before you got her. You need her retrained by someone who works with traumatized ponies. A suggestion…

    I have am eight year old, quarter horse gelding I was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to put speed on him? He is slow sometimes and when I ask him to speed up, he stops dead and won’t move and kick out when I ask him to move forward.


    Thank you

      I’m in desperate need of answers concerning my 17h 10 yr old Thoroughbred
    I’ve had for about a year now. His name is Swayze and he is a great
    grandson of Northern Dancer and Nijinksy. He has never raced or trained to
    race.  I do not know a lot of his history but I do know his previous rider
    would dismount if he got fast with her.
         For the first three or four months I owned him, I spent every ride
    trying to walk and trot without having to hold him with a death grip and do
    circles every 2 feet. I hve had him vetted and he is 100% sound. I have
    ridden him with a low headset, beautiful canters, and a soft rein, but only
    during blue moons. He needs serious help and I don’t know where to start.
         My first concern is how nervous he gets. Sweating, diarrhea, and the
    whites of his eyes showing is a serious problem. I am out of ideas on how
    to calm him. He’s not spooking at anything or even jumpy in the slightest.
    He’s simply the most frazzled horse I’ve ever met. His only job is simple
    hunter jumpers. He jumps like a pro, but before and after he’s a bat outta
    hell. I can walk him and trot him just fine. He bends well and will do
    trail riding like a seasoned quarter horse on the buckle. I have ridden him
    in a horse show in the horse pleasure division and I’m very surprised we
    didn’t get disqualified. He wasn’t worried about the people, the other
    horses, or even the trucks and trailers. He didn’t freak out until we had
    to canter. Then it was game over from there.
          I’m sure at this point you are wondering why in the hell I got him in
    the first place. He was $500 and has so much potential. When it’s good,
    it’s great! His ground manners are impeccable.  I can back him, wtc, halt,
    and turn him without a halter or touching him. He’s very sweet and wants to
    put his head on your chest, close his eyes, and have you scratch INSIDE his
    ears. (Weirdo)
         What can I do? Is he a lost cause and I’m just too close to see that?
    I’m a struggling vet tech student married to a marine living on my parents’
    farm trying to help keep them and the horses afloat.
         Well, thank you for your time and listening to me ramble. I appreciate
    it more than words can describe. I’m just not ready to give up yet and need
    your wisdom!
