Rusty is so cute!!!! His name is like his color!!! He looks very very sweet!!Could you please help us with a very special HOTD today? Spot Ya Sum Luck(Dennis), who was HOTD last Thursday, had to be humanely euthanized last Friday because of complications after his surgery. We thought it would be a nice way to remember him by electing his dam, Shezadoozie, HOTD. Doozie is a 10 year old black overo American Paint horse. She's a very versatile horse, showing in English and Western Pleasure,Trail class, Halter, Showmanship, Jumping,and Cattle Sorting. Doozie's a laid back horse who loves to just laze around the pasture. Another thing she loves to do is swim. Please vote for Doozie today,in memory of Dennis. Her blog # is 80674. Just erase your own numbers at the end of the web address at the top of your page, and type in Doozie's. Thanks everyone! Here's a vote and virtual treats!%>%>%>O'O'O' >O<>- O<>O<<%<%<%- Love...Stormy, Gypsy, Bucky, & Daphne

oh 1 more thing
it is more expensive and harder on the animal to geld them later in life. Bug needed such little sedation so it was cheaper and he didn't even know his little balls were gone. The older they are the more painful and more sedation you have to use, sometimes you actually have to put them into surgery and under general anesthesia, lots more money out of pocket. I paid 175 for bugs castration, when I castrated comet at the age of 2 he was around 300. Just throwing some more reasons to castrate early.

just my opinion
and I don't mean to offend anyone, but there are enough stallions out there. maybe 1 out of 10,000 studs should actually be a stud, that was from tv show. There are just too many backyard, unbroke, not used, going to the slaughter or auction horses. All stallions make much better geldings. I gelded my youngster at 3 months of age, why, because I didn't need a stallion that and I wanted to ride him, not saying studs can't be ridden. Bug is now going to grow bigger than he would have if he were left a stud because it is proven that horses gelded early in life put so much less energy into producing testosterone and more into growing. Do yourself a favor, geld him and love him, he will be that much better of a boy.

Hey
I think you should definitley geld him before you train and start ot ride him. Stallions are sometimes stubborn and VERY VERY fiesty. But not al satllions. If you need anymore advice, just comment me

Well honestly it really depends on his temperment. If your gona geld him anyways, id say do it before you train him, them you wont have to deal with it later and earlier the better! Anymore questions just ask!!!

I don't know enough about the training process to give you genuine advice about how to train your colt for a theraptuic career. The best advice I can give you if you aspire him to be a theraputic school horse is to send him to a training center that has people with skills and knowledge fo how to train green horses for it. Another thing is that since he wasn't bred to become one, since the horses we use are usually bred for this specific career, it would maybe harder to get him in. I know that sending him to a center would cause you to be apart from him, but it's probably the only other option besides hiring a trainer. Good luck! :D

Training theraputic riding horses....
I know some about training, but mostly just handling and training the already trained horses, but I've worked some with training the newbies. Well first we train them to ride, basically just fine tune them to be extra careful, and that includes being soft not only when training, but when handling, tacking, grooming, etc. We just try to be calm towards them, including not disciplining with pain, but using more natural horsemanship training methods. When we are calm towards them, and they are trained well, they will be calm towards us in return. I don't know much else, but I'll know more after our annual training in about a month. If you have any questions, feel free to ask, I'll try to answer as best as I can. : ]

i would cut him before you break him so it would be a little bit easier, we did mine after wards, but we sold him, he got broke, and rode fora little while, then we ended up cutting him for the lady, then about 4 months later we b\ought him back! its lightning i have to add him! \but yeah i think it might be easier if you cut him first! just to wonder, im not mad or anything, but why was it you asked me?? thats great that you did it makes me feel like i really do know al ot more about horses than i htink! THANK YOU!

idk.... ur askin a 14 year old... i think it depends on his temperment. we hav a stud pony too n hes sweet as honey n we ride him. hes very mild n calm (around ppl ne ways) n not tht bad when we ride him with other horses. but it really depends on how tempermental he is i guess.

great question
should you geld him before or after you break him. i definitely would geld him before because it will make it much more easier to break him.

Good Question!

You should definetly geld him before you break him because stallion are very hard to train!

Geld Him
You should geld him if your not used to working around stallions. Especially if he is aggressive and tempermental. You should make up your mind soon though because he is a bit older than when vets usually geld stallions.

Gelding ...
You asked about when to geld your horse as far as gelding him before or after teaching him to be ridden, but the focus is usually more on what age and what time of year to geld. 3yrs old is actually pretty late to be gelding a horse to begin with :/, so probably the sooner the better at this stage. As far as time of year goes, early spring and late fall are generally preferred (fewer flies to infect the operation site). Other than that, I would be looking at my horse's disposition. If he is displaying stud behaviors (aggressiveness, preoccupation with mares, vocalization, and so forth) then I would think it safer to wait to ride him until after he's been gelded and had several months to recuperate (as all the hormones won't be out of his system immediately, and the incision area will need time to fully heal). You might want to ask your vet how long you should wait before working with him under saddle. I hope I was able to help, and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask! I hope everything works out well for you and your buddy Rusty :) *

I hope you have a blast getting into the theraputic riding 'business'. I really don't like to say business, but I say 'program' because it's not for the money, its's for the children. It's a very rewarding program, and I'm sure you won't regret joining!

I hate to be the first one on the horse so best of luck with that:) My best experiences are in a round pen or small corral or pen and the first time I get on as long as there is no bucking I sit for a few minutes and then get off. If my horse wants to walk I let him. I really like the parelli method because they continue to use the lunge line when they are on their backs and a lot of trainer will just work them in a round pen using a long line while they are on them. You are really steering just directing them in one direction and letting the horse do the work. You just sit there and talk to them. It allows you to not worry about there head and doesn't give you the chance to hurt them by pulling on the reins. I think sending him to a pro sounds like a good idea if he is charging you. Best of luck!

Hi there!
I recommend first and foremost go buy a Pat Parelli book, they are the best when it comes to starting a horse. They teach their horses to lunge and when they introduce something new like a saddle or obstacles they work them on the lunge line. Now you want to make sure that you get your guy used to whips and ropes touching his legs or else you are going to have problems. Get him going on the lunge line and start tapping, it doesn't matter if he moves away or kicks, just keep him moving forward on the lunge line. As long as you keep him moving and engaged when he gets upset or frightened he will concentrate on what you are asking him to do not what you are doing to him. Don't rush him, keep him calm by talking to him and stop every few minutes to reward him with a pat and encouragement. Hope this helps and good luck!

my advice to you about how to act around green horses is to take time and do alot of ground work before starting under saddle you must earn trust from your horse then it will all come right alone. hope i helped
