    Stud chains in mouths

    What is other people's opinions on putting stud chains in horses mouths and yanking on them in general? Isn't it cruel? Can't another form of punishment be used? I'm just wondering why anyone has to do it? I feel really bad for horses that have to endure it because I wouldn't want someone to put...

    Distressing Halter Video- Cruel Training Techniques!!!!

    I just watched a scene from Everything Miniature with Jim Curry- Showing your Miniature at Halter. I must say it was rather distressing to see how he confused the poor colt he was trying to teach leading to. He put a stallion chain IN ITS MOUTH and just yanked and yanked on it. He told the horse...

    Art Contest at AMHR Convention

    I looked at the website online but I don't see it. Do you know what Merry Wicke's email address is? I do not know it. Normally I would have the AMHR magazine to find all the info in, but I'm at an equestrian college right now 2,000 miles away from our AMHR magazines.

    Strong Objection To Rule Change Proposal

    Its good that your horse is accomplished enough to jump this way, but please consider practicing at home a little and warming up a little at shows. It is not fair to the horse's muscles to be asked to jump from not being warmed up. Would you want to go sprint a race with hurdles and never...

    Art Contest at AMHR Convention

    Does anyone have any info on the art/ photo contest at the AMHR Convention in November? Like where do we sent entries in to and such? Thanks so much for your help. I did it several years ago, but I'm not sure this year where to send them in to.

    Strong Objection To Rule Change Proposal

    Please do not change the jumping classes at all. It is a wonderful and fun class as it is! Here are numerous reasons to leave it AS IS!!!!!! 1)If people could not show more than two horses in a class it is damaging to trainers who show more than two horses for clients. 2) Why do you have to...

    Jon and Kate "Its Too Late" episode Monday

    I agree television and even movies at the theatres have gotten out of hand. The more junk and violence people see, they more they want to see. Dreadful! In fact it seems as if everything has gotten even worse in the last couple of years. I too, love the old shows like I Love Lucy, and Andy...

    Color and name help??

    She looks like a silver dapple or silver black to me. I think if she was grulla she would have a darker face, legs, mane, and tail. Is your farm name Maxwell Miniatures? For names how about: Maxwell Miniatures Mam'zel (short for Madamoiselle-my young lady)

    Conformation Critique please?

    Ok, I don't know what happened here, But I just posted some pictures up to find out if this horse would be okay in a halter class, so I will try again. He is 4 year old stallion. His head is a little large but could he do okay? Our friend would like him shown in halter. This next one is...

    THEFT AT HOBBY HORSE CLOTHING

    Oh wow. Thats strange. I've never heard of someone stealing show clothes before. How do they think they could sell all that stuff and not get caught? But I love Hobby Horse clothing, so I hope they find the criminals.

    Critique Please-Halter?

    There is a friend of ours who would like to show one of these horses in halter. The first is a stallion with Blue Boy bloodlines. Thunder does have a thick head though. What do you think about him in halter? The second is his little brother, Indy. His head is nicer. Will his left crooked knee...

    speaking in public

    I don't like public speaking either. Last year in college I had to take a speech class and I had to give 3 speeches. Ugh. One had to be 6 or 7 minutes long and a persuasive speech. My worst kind. Plus notes were alowed but not alot of reading off of them. You kind of had to memorize it. Another...

    Looking for a good driving bit

    She has been using a copper snaffle but Bobbie Ferraro, who is a driving training here, has been helping her with her horse and said that he needs a stronger bit because he is a strong horse, and very fast. And she recommended the Kimberwick, but my mom can't find the proper size. If someone...
