30th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Comanche Ranch
Gracie was born in the Oregon mountains. Wild and Free. She very well could have stayed that way, had the BLM not come and rounded up the horses on the mountain. When she was taken from the mountains she was only 6 months old, and seperated from her mother. At a very young ag ...

How high can a horse jump? Many horses have tried for the world record for the highest jump, and the Puissance class is usually the main attraction at big shows. But how high can a horse jump, and who holds the record? The truth is, there is a lot of controversy in answering tha ...

Saying Goodbye to Music
28th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Dry Music
You were the most fun and best teacher for me, you said it was ok when we needed to calm down, you would put your head and neck over us and say your safe with me. Oh music your 5 fillies, they were so successful. Skeeter and I are going to make sure that we become champions in ha ...
Horses Around My World
27th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   mosquito
When I moved from the US to the UK many, many years ago, I had already spent many years working with horses. I thought I could turn up at a riding school, and just get right into training and teaching like I did in the US. Well, it turns out I had a lot to learn! I had been wor ...
Triumph's True Triumph
26th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Finally There
I laid my head on his chest and listened for breathing. It was dead silence. The silence was deafening. I buried my face in his mane and tried to calm my breathing but I couldn't. I held onto him with all my might and tried to tell myself this was just a dream. The only problem w ...
Stubborn Love - Story of a Special Caspian Pony
25th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   TheLloyd
Shanaz was born in France many, many years before me. He was raised completely by man for one reason or another, which still reflects in the horse he is today. Pictures of him being fed with a bottle in someone's kitchen makes me laugh even now, since he is the only of our horses ...

I’ve written a few articles for Ponybox, but I haven’t sent in any stories about the special horses in my life. There have a been a lot of horses that I’ve owned, trained, ridden or just cared for, but there are a special few who have really made a mark on my life. This article ...
My Arapalossa Named Tex
24th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Stay Untamed
The farrier hated him so much that last time he got shod, Tex was on the ground hobbled and ended up with rope burns all over his body. My friend at the barn was the one to witness this, my mom and I didn't even know he was going to get new shoes that day. Needless to say, we mov ...

It has snowed really heavily during the night when I woke up on that saturday morning. I got up, got dressed and went downstairs to have some breakfast. I was just about to go muck out my pony Buddies stall when mum called, "Don't forget to take the dogs down with you". We have t ...
Satin Was His Name
19th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   TheLloyd
There is still that other horse out there, calling for you and knowing you are the one. And I also see how much it can heal to find that horse, if you are so lucky. Though ears were the beginning, and one rotten person the end, there's always a second beginning. ...
Trail Horse Turned Show Horse
19th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Dark Star
I lead Archie out to the round pen and started lunging him. He decided he didn't want to be lunged, so he decided he would stop. He ran full speed into the gate of the round pen. I stopped him and lead him back to the barn (without a lead rope) so he was walking sideways, and I'm ...

This is the story of Argus, the 16 year old thoroughbred gelding who was kept in the same pen for 16 years. The major question that Katie Moor, the foster carer for Argus, was asking was, "How do you rehabilitate a horse that has barely moved for 16 years?" ...
The Story of Chris
16th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   ImaCoolCowgirl
After riding him the first time I made more time to groom him and ride him. I learned all I could about him. He was a trained barrel horse in his younger years, but was abused by his rider and refused to run. He was terrified of whips and being tied. He was kept by himself and is ...

I had lost interest after being scared out of my body riding. My trainer made me jump, I didnt decide, she did. After that accident I never rode her again and was put onto Gus. A gelding draft who was majorly trained in Dressage. I taught him to jump and we continued to jump ...

In the winter of 2009 things started taking a turn for the worse. Richard was 24 years old and was starting to get skinny, and they could no longer keep weight on him. We got instructions from the vet on things we could try, and they seemed to work. We thought things were good, u ...
The Heartache of Buying a Horse
12th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Dream on Dreamer
A few days later we had the saddle fitter come out and fit her saddle, she was all fine but we noticed a scar near her mouth, but that ended up the least of our worries. Two days after the saddle fit, I rode Athena once more, trouble free. I decided she'd be ready for Pony Club w ...
Painted Rain
11th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Breegirly
Here's what happened exactly. Rain doesn't like for the reins to go over her head. Dad unclipped the reins accidentally and threaded them through his spurs, which were on her shoulders. He clipped the reins back to the headstall. When he climbed on the pipe fence, the spurs hit h ...

Every country has a big horse race – the Kentucky Derby, the Arc de Triomphe, the Epsom Derby. But there’s something about Australia’s showcase race – the Melbourne Cup – that really stands out. Like the Arc – but not the Epsom or Kentucky Derbies – the Melboune Cup pits 3 year o ...

When I saw my mom, I told her my arm hurt really badly. We went to a doctor for x-rays and found out I had broken my radius and ulna in my arm, putting me out of the saddle for two and half months. This all happened because of my trainer being unsafe. ...
The Story of Lily
7th Sep 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Sundancer
I had given up on riding pretty much for good because I didn't like people yelling at me and telling me what to do. Pretty stupid move, huh? Well things were about to change dramatically for me. We were moving to a new barn because we wanted a barn that didn't place a priority wi ...
Mustang Mouse's Story
31st Aug 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Avain
Ever since I can remember, like most little girls, I had always dreamed of owning a "wild mustang". I can remember telling my mom about my dreams after I would wake up in the morning, they were always the same: I had a wild, black mustang who lived in the woods by my house, we ha ...

Ruffian went almost immediately into surgery. When the filly woke up, she though she was still running and thrashed around wildly. Even with all the attendents helping, they couldn't control Ruffian. She repeatedly hit her elbow with the heavy cast on her leg and shattered her el ...
Clyde and I
28th Aug 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Tailafire
I had fallen head-first onto the terribly hard ground. My arms must have gone out in front of my head, my left arm taking the impact. My dad rushed over laughing, until I pulled myself out of the dirt and groaned in pain when I bent my left arm. Dad thought it was just a sprain, ...
The Story of Cocoa
23rd Aug 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   MoMoz
It was my turn to canter around the arena, and the second we took off, I felt a jolt, then a bounce, and then we were moving, but we weren’t cantering. I was bouncing around in the saddle, and Cocoa was literally hopping across the ground. When I had made it all the way around, m ...

Amongst the shows I had gained various rossets including my first win in show jumping. While it was only at 1'6-1'9 and I did do the last jump hanging around his neck, it was a first. Now your probably wondering why I was hanging around his neck. I had unbalanced myself at fence ...
Escape - Attacked While Riding Alone
12th Aug 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Polo the Weirdo
The man started groping in my pocket than, and I soon found myself screaming hysterically at him that I didn’t have anything for him. He motioned for me to be quiet, and though I knew it was useless, I yelled at him to let go of my horse, to release us. Needless to say, he did no ...
Three Years Put Into Words - Year One
10th Aug 2010   |   Horse Stories   |   Padfoot
Here is my view on Toffee, I have never given up on him. That is what ruins a lot of horses, people giving up. They do one thing wrong and it's over, their not wanted. I could never pronounce my boy useless, after everything we've gone through, the hate, the wounds, the pain. It ...
