Ok so I am 15 and I am wanting to become a horse and ranch owner and give lessons to children and adults but what qualifications do I need? And I don't ride often but I need to learn as much about horses any tips or websites I can go on? And is Meredith Manor Equestrian College as good as people say
Hello horsey friends!! I'm back now, my computer crashed, and I just got it back!! I have been dying for answers, but my mare is a 15hh 23y/o quarter mare, I've owned her for a year. I'm planning to work on natural horsemanship, but she has a sore back and has saddle marks from her previous owner. If I were to jump on bareback, would I hurt her? Isn't it the same as the saddle? Anybody know?
My 3 year old often rears when I'm lunging her. I'm afraid she may start doing it while I'm on her, even though she never has. What are the chances of this happening? Also what do I do if she does it and what would are chances of falling back be? I'm not a very experienced rider so any suggestions would be great!
I am very interested in becoming an Equine Massage Therapist. I am in high school at the moment doing a program called running start that allows me to do my junior and senior year at a college so I will graduate with my AA so I will be two years ahead. After I graduate I want to transfer to a larger accredited college and get a Major that will help me on my way to a good career in Equine Massage. I have heard of people getting majors in Equine Studies but I am wondering if there are any other degrees that would be helpful for getting into the career successfully. Would a degree such as Animal Science work? I plan to get my Bachelors in something that would apply to Equine Massage Therapy and then get a certificate in Equine Massage afterwards. Has anyone done this? Or know someone who has done this? I'm going to talk to my councilor but I was hoping to get something from all of you as well (: All suggestions are welcome
What is your preferred liniment for your horse's legs? My last lease horse's owner like to use a mix of Bigeloil and Alcohol, but I developed an allergy to the Bigeloil. :( My throat would get very itchy and my tongue would go tingly and numb when I sprayed it. I've used Sore No More and Greencool before, just wondering what everyone else likes!
