    What does AMHA need to do to survive?

    This was my first year showing in AMHA. I showed at three of the NWMHC shows and the Western Regionals. I come from a background of showing the last 5 yrs in Pinto in the NW with very successful results. I showed my Sr. Gelding in AOTE, Amateur Lvl 1 and Open Halter, Color, and AOTE Classic...

    What to Wear for Pinto World Show

    If you were watching this year, you probably noticed the bigger moving horses usually will win, all things being equal (manners, etc.) I'll let someone else handle what to wear for youth. I recommend you get the current Pinto rule book and it will explain the differences in classes. Always...

    Got A Super Gelding???

    If you plan to only compete in your region, (no World show) do you really have any shot at this? Or are you just building the fund.

    Headed back to Oregon

    I am so sorry for what you are going through. If you need a little mini fix, might I suggest you go over to Scott Creek Miniatures in Salem. Plenty of horses and babies to hug on there! Joanne has a big shoulder and an even bigger heart that I think you might find comforting at this time. The...

    Quarantine, GOOD ONES please

    I second the vote for Scott Creek in Oregon. I have been there and observed the professionalism Joanne follows. She also accompanies the horses to Europe.

    White hooves

    Max with Black feet Max with white feet. It supposedly makes their legs look longer to have white feet. I don't know if that is entirely important. I kind of prefer the look of the black feet on this guy. It seems to give him a finished look. Also, if you don't perfectly sand and polish...

    Beginning Training with a 6 month old

    It is fun to teach them the in-hand trail stuff at this age. Mine pick it up very easy. I also start ground driving from long lead ropes to each side of the halter. Starting this young, seems to take all the drama out of it. Lounging a little to get a whoa is important to me also. I try to...

    feeling a little unwelcomed!

    In my opinion, you have very good taste! Proving this colt like you said you are planning to do, will create a horse that very well should be kept a stallion! Good luck in your endevors. Breeding these little guys is not for the weak or timid, but it sounds like you are doing your homework.

    Driving Boots

    There has been talk here, on and off about boots. Someone one brought up that the "Build-a-Bear" tennis shoes worked. Since then, I have talked to a couple of people that have tried them with good results. I just bought two pair, but haven't tried them yet. They cost $9 per pair. The high...

    Your favorite color, among your minis

    All my life I've wanted a dappled gray horse, that is, until I discovered SILVER Dapple! Now, I don't have to worry about my horse turning white! This is my little boy, Rio.

    Fitting a Saddle

    I have a new nephew that was born 30 days ago. They live in my town and I have hopes of introducing him to the horse world. My boy Elvis has the perfect personality to have a child in his life. I have bought not just one, but two saddles that I hope to put this boy on. I am sure that many of...

    Sounds like you might want to focus on learning showmanship with your horse. You can have lots of fun in open shows if there are any in your area. From there you can take this to in-hand obstacle and jumping. Just go have fun with your horse. It will lead you on an incredible journey.
