    They are nice. It would be brilliant for you and I have one myself but they always kick you if you stand behind it. When you first get be careful.

    We have a warmblood she is 17.3 and the most placid horse I have ever known. She will let you do anything to her and she is so loveable, would not change her for anything we love her.

The distorted and inhumane shoeing practices used on these horses should be illegal. Anyone who understands the basic natural hoof mechanics and body posture of a horse can see they are in tremendous pain, just standing still! There is a reason why navicular issues and hoof problems are rampant with these breeds, because they are incorrectly trimmed and inhumanely shod to distort and produce an exaggerated gait that is NOT NATURAL! Please do your research....they move beautifully on bare feet with no weights and CAN go for hours that way.....but you will only break down their body by continuing this insidious shoeing practice.

    My disbelief is general public think this is okay... I agree... 100% you can obviously see the horses are in pain.
  • Clarice Brough - 2013-05-07
    So... it sounds like what you're saying is they need to be correctly shod, and if they are demonstrating pain, it has been done incorrectly. Which makes sense and a professional should probably be referred to, especially for this breed.

    People need to do there research before commenting!!!! If the breed is so bad Why is there 20 year old Walking-horses still showing and winning World grand championships and by the way a 6 year old was riding one of them, I don't see a 20 year old quarter horse still competing or In fact I don't see any breed of horse that lives that long and still showing. I show walking horses and they are treated better than most humans!!!! If the people in the walking horse industry did not care about there horses then why would people spend 500-700 dollars a month for training and that is not including shoeing and showing them, shoes cost about 125-200 and one show cost 60-125 and that is every weekend!!!!! Shavings up to their ankles all-you-can-eat hay worked and bathed everyday or every other day. Ya we sure do treat our horses horrible!!! P.s I had a 'Big Lick' horse and brought her home for the winner pulled the pads off and trail rode her that day for 2 hours and she did not even break a sweat or act like she was hurt in anyway!!! She is now happy and health with her first baby due any day now!!!

    This was banned about 20 years ago. The padding used today is humane and only weights down a horse's front. This encourages them to use more power from behind, and the horse lifts his legs high. What you're refering to is soring, an abusive practice where a chemical is placed on the horse's fetlock along with a chain or boot that would rub against the chemical when the hoof touched the ground and cause severe pain. This practice is and has been illegal for years. The chains and boots you see today are only to put weight on the hoof, and causes NO PAIN.

    Really appreciate learning about how they are trained, and that those inhumane practices are totally BANNED! YES:)

    Putting a horse on pads is not inhumane. The horse is in no pain and feels no discomfort whatsoever . It's inhumane to sore a horse's feet, yes. But there is nothing wrong with pads.

Check out the Feather Fund Organazation! Basically around 50 people a year write a essay about why you want a Chincoteague pony, and the Feather Fund chooses two winners. They give the winners a grant to pay for a Chincoteague pony. However, the winner must be able to provide apropriate houseing, exercise, transportation, and plenty of love for the pony.

I just lost my Arab two weeks ago. He was 27 1/2. My best friend for over 26 years. By far the smartest horse I have ever met. Rode him two weeks before I had to put him down due to colic. Miss him so much. At 59 I thought that I may not get another horse but have started looking for another Arabian. I have a 16.3 ottb but want another small go to guy like my old Traveller.
