We have a 3 year old Haflinger/Appaloosa gelding. When we got him he was a stud colt. My daughter and I have taught him everything. He picks up his feet, leads, accepts saddle and bridle, trailers, bathes, and is a real joy to teach and be around. We are waiting for him to mature a little before we ride him. Looking forward to trail riding this guy nothing bothers him.

I bought a 4 year old Islandic in April 2013, I have done loads of groundwork and have now backed him, my question is his feet are so small, my farrier said he is rather flat footed, I have now had front shoes on him, can anyone tell me if this is normal for the breed? I love him to bits, but I don't know anything about the breed. Thank You Carole

    I suggest you talk to Icelandic Horse experts. A good place to start would be the organization, United States Icelandic Horse Congress (USIHC), that is an official registry for this breed. They have many members and I bet they could answer this and other detailed questions about your horse. Good luck!
  • Asta - 2016-11-03
    Yes it is normal. I am from Iceland and i own two horses. Many Icelandic horses have short feet but that does not have to be a bad thing:) Here we are kind of surprised if the horse had long legs haha.

My life dream was to own a lippizzaner horse for a trail riding horse. I live in Hillsboro, Ohio 45133. Would it be possible to purchase one and how much do they cost? I was interested in a filly. That way I could bond with it as it grows up. I know that you can not ride them until their at least 4 years old. That doesn't matter to me. Just the thought of being able to have one would mean everything in the world to me. Would it be cheaper in price if I ordered a slight older one. What do you think? Where would the closest place be to me that I would be able to purchase one? I am looking very forward to hearing from you.

Thank you so much,

    Lipizzans make great trail horses! They are calm and tend to stop and look when something concerns them rather than spook and run away. They have good feet and are comfortable to ride. The mares are strong minded but will try very hard for you if you are loving and fair to them. Don't try to dominate a Lipizzan mare! She won't put up with harsh treatment! I know I have been a long lover of Lipizzans and have bred them. Right now horses are pretty easy to find - even Lipizzans. Look on for those that are for sale. Foals and older horses are cheaper. And at times there are some that are available for free from those who just want a really good home for their horse.

What kind of bit are Lipizzans ridden with?

    Lipizzans are just like any other horse when it comes to bits. Every horse is different and prefers, or is trained with a different bit. Depending on the age of the horse, that can also play a role in which bit to use. If it's an older horse that has already been trained ask the person you purchased it from. If you purchased a youngster you can train him/her with a bit suitable to your needs.

    I saw the Spanish Riding School perform last night in Birmingham and all I can say it took my breath away! I have bought the show programme and it is full of many facts and figures about the stallions. They are trained in plain English bridles and saddles with a snaffle bit and possibly a dropped nose bands. They are ridden during performances in double bridles made of pure gold fittings. They truly are a once in a life-time spectacle!

Morgan horses are spirited, but are they jumpy and highstrung? I am looking for a first horse and I am afraid of horses when they are highstrung. Thanks.

    Well any horse can be high-strung, but Morgan horses generally aren't too high-strung. Other good ones are Quarter Horses and Paint Horses.
  • Anonymous - 2013-11-03
    It depends upon the type of Morgan family the Morgan horse you select comes from. I have a 'Show' Morgan and this type is spirited, sassy, proud yet stubburn and defiante. She can be a handful if you are hardhanded or give poor cues in how to work her. She is more like a performance horse. A friend of ours has a 'Working' Morgan and that type is easygoing, lighthearted with a willingness to be your companion. It's this type of horse which most persons envision owning. They are kind of like the Paint horse or maybe even a Quarter horse. But, please check out what his/her lineage is before you commit yourself to the Morgan horse. I love our 'Show' Morgan, she is alot of work and full of sass but she is well worth the time and effort put into her.
  • The unknown horse lover - 2014-05-09
    Any horse can be high strung, I have a 4 year old quarter horse mare that hasn't been ridden in over a year because she got injured terribly while running in the field with my Uncle's horses. They caused her to kick a trailer and her hoof came half off, she was on stable rest for months after that. Now her hoof is healed except when I get on her, she bucks. So um...I guess my point is, any horse can be high strung or aggressive or both. But my suggestion would be a cross-breed, maybe a Morgan, Clydesdale mix? I have one of them and she is amazingly well behaved and talented, she's also great for beginning riders, she's 17. Try looking up cross-breeds and tell me what you think! I hope this helped!

    Morgan horses can be very good nautered if you ride and work them often
  • Anonymous - 2015-04-24
    I bought a 2yr old Morgan, broke her out, she is VERY personable, low keyed when riding, and willing to do as I ask. she LOVES people and can be a bothersome pet!! in the field? around other horses? she IS the ALPHA... I love this mare, I noticed the more ground work, she is even better under saddle. she is 6 now, and trail rides over 30 acres,,, she is a dream.

    No matter the breed, horses vary. If you are looking for a calm horse you might want to look for an older horse, not ancient but somewhere in its early to mid teens. Morgans are generally known for their good temperament, but temperament is different for each individual horse too.

    Hi Syed, It's nice to know that you're interested in getting a marwari horse for yourself but I'd like to give a hint to you about the hassles of keeping a pet, especially a horse, they live for 30 years and need a lot of care on daily, weekly and monthly basis. So better start with joining a horse training school first and when after 6 months you still feel like having a horse of your own GO to animal fairs at Pushkar, rajasthan or Nagaur, rajasthan or to Sonepur, Bihar or contact Jodhpur equestrian club or any other reputed farms like Sarli farm 09779050700 or other such farms they will provide you a horse according to your needs.

    I want to buy a marwari horse. where can i buy one. Please provide me with any information thank you. I live in the us
  • Lauren C - 2016-04-27
    While it's great to express interest in this rare breed, unless you live in India you cannot own one, as of now. The export laws for Marwaris are extremely strict; it's probably more realistic to call it an all out ban save for one exception. Only one woman outside India has a permit to export a small amount of Marwaris and she does not sell them.
