    mare question

    Do you all think that a young mare that is awful during her cycles will remain that way or do they sometimes improve as they get older? I have a 2 1/2 that is pretty feisty anyway but during her cycle can be a real little monster. She is so sweet the rest of the time. I have 3 other big horse...

    Rope Halters just a thought about them

    Since I got back into horses about 10 years ago I have followed the Natural Horsemanship method-with clicker training added-and pretty much always used rope halters on my big horses. I did buy a Clinton Anderson one I've used on my minis too but not all the time since I have 3 minis and just the...

    Looking for name of harness seller

    I came across a website I think through here before and they looked like they had nice harnesses. A harness is top on my Christmas wish list and I need to send a link to my husband . I think it was "Star" something and I think they were amish made. Thanks for any help!

    Exercise for a too fat mini

    One of my minis really got too fat this summer. I've had him put up for a week now in about a 80 x 40 cattle pen with a shed. He certainly feels good enough to get out and kick up his heels and race around the pen. I would like to start some type of exercise routine though. What would be a good...

    Do horses get over cart accidents?

    Hi all, I inquired about a gelding via email. It said in the ad that he is cart trained. He had been shown as a baby and did quite well. Never shown in driving but had 30 days professional training. The owner wrote me back and said he'd had a cart accident (didn't elaborate) and was now afraid...

    AMHA Shows in Oklahoma?

    Is there a website that lists upcoming shows? I looked on the AMHA site but couldn't find anything. Maybe I'm not looking in the right place? Would like to find Tulsa area and NW AR shows. AMHR shows as well. Thanks Cara

    registration question

    Hi all, Is it possible to register a horse with AMHA if you only have copies of the sire and dam's papers? I'm thinking it's probably not possible but thought I'd ask just to make sure. There's a little gelding I was thinking of going to look at but that's all she's got as far as paperwork on...

    Hauling mini in van

    Hi all, I would really love to get my kids started showing our little mini gelding this year. We don't have a truck and trailer right now though. I have hauled everything from goats to my two minis (not both at the same time) and had no problems. My husband is a worry wart though and is afraid...

    mini horses and children with autism?

    Showing an older mare?

    Ok, I posted on here the other day about breeding my 18 y/o mare. Since she is probably a maiden mare I don't think we'll do that. So, I'm wondering about letting the kids show her in showmanship or hunter class or something. I have no idea if she's been shown but she is easy to handle, has a...

    How do you "set up" a horse for halter?

    Hi all, I have a mini gelding that I would love to have my kids show some day. How do I learn how to set him up? Do you position the feet with your hands over and over until he gets the idea or what?! I read somewhere before that you always start by teaching them to square up the back feet...

    What age to teach a mini donkey to pull a cart?

    Hi all, I have a mini gelding about 37", just turned 2. I've been working with him on voice commands of walk, trot and stand and also sacking him out alot and teaching him to laterally flex his neck. He's so smart and I feel we have a good start. At what age will he be considered physically...

    Confused about AMHA fees

    Hi all, I am not a member of AMHA and I have a gelding I needed to get final registration papers on. He came with I guess they are called temporary papers. There was a photo of him on there and it said they needed to be finalized no later than 6 months after he turned 60 months old. I was...
