Freestyle Horsemanship

That’s Freestyle Reining, not Horsemanship…

No it’s not. I was physically at the world show for this. It’s a new class they’ve added.

Someone care to explain the need for that massive amount of hardware on that horse mouth? Like I don’t get it at all.

Massive amount of hardware? It’s a rubber Pelham.

Do your tack research people omfg

classic example of “I see tack I can’t identify! ITS BaD!!!1!!”

This PETA video about horse racing is bullshit.

hazey-in-the-sky:

PETA is bullshit. not all racing thoroughbreds are treated this way, this is the result of crooked, cruel people in a the racing industry. PETA needs to stop putting on a show and stop taking money from people as an organization that is helping animals when they’re actually killing more than anyone.

Save NYC Carriage Horses

The horses are treated like absolute garbage, are you freaking kidding me!? I’ve seen first hand those horses working in 90+ degree weather, dodging traffic, almost being hit by trucks and cars and breathing in exhaust all day. Should we also talk about how many have died from cars hitting them!? Manhattan is the absolute worst place for a horse to be forced to drag people around. This is bullshit that they haven’t shut this down yet and if you think not you’re extremely ignorant.

Ugh can someone with more time address this.

In the last 30 years, less then 10 horses have been seriously injured or have died from accidents. IN THIRTY YEARS. The horses work every other day, no longer then 9 hours. They are parked with constant access to water, and carry buckets of feed with them. They are given a mandated vacation of a minimum of 5 weeks a year (most are upwards of 6 months). They are seen no less then 4 times a year by a vet, regular farrier work every 6 to 8 weeks, gauranteed retirement. They have a fire sprinkler above every stall, open windows with fans on every level of every carriage house BUILT FOR THE SOLE PURPOSE OF HOUSING CARRIAGE HORSES.

Enough already with the idiocy and blatant misinformation. Enough. You may think this is just a battle about the fluffy cute ponies you assume you know about, but you don’t. You don’t have a clue. They have jobs, they provide for themselves, they are the partners of men and women who earn their living and are able to give them homes. If this ban goes through you are not only putting these working, healthy, well cared for horses out of a job, but the people they work with too.

Seriously. Stop it.

Lol at this person calling anyone ignorant. Kid, you are painfully ignorant on the topic… admit it, sit down and try to learn.

Little zebra up the road from the barn!

I’m sure I’ve mentioned before just how much I dislike “pet” zebras.
That being said, she’s really stinking cute.

Having a pet zebra is an actual thing? i couldn’t be more jealous.  

Until it bites an appendage off ;)

Trey Hedgepeth Training →

thecityhorse:

thehightechpony:

Okay guys I need your help. This is Lucy’s trainer Trey Hedgepeth’s training page. Can you guys “like” it?

He is the equivalent of a nice guy. He is kind and patient and is basically one of the greatest young horseman I’ve ever seen. He volunteers his time training for rescues and has rehabbed NUMEROUS problem horses or horses that people have deemed too dangerous and only worth a bullet. If Lucy didn’t have us, she might have ended up in a bad place but now she’s at Treys and he’s totally confident and believes she will make a full recovery and make a riding horse.

This man is making a difference in auction horses, problem horses and rescues. He donates a lot of his time and charges very low prices because he’s in it for the HORSES not the money. If you guys could take a second of your day and just like his Facebook page that would be awesome!! If we can signal boost the crap out of this it would be so awesome. Come on guys! Let’s support a horseman that doesn’t believe in gimmicks but correct and patient training!!

Signal boost the crap out of this for me my friends!!

boost ^^

biggayequestrianblog, WTFhorseindustry and equestrianartists all need co-owners because I am failing miserably at running them. ALSO THIS IS A GIVE AWAY. →

thecityhorse:

Please send me a message with:
1 which blog you’re interested in
2. how much time you have to devote to maintaining said blog (ie: how many posts a week could you make?)
3. Why you are qualified for said blog
4. Any special blogging skills like graphic design / coding / experienced writer.


I will try to make a choice by the end of the week and to try and find the PERFECT co-owner I will combine this with a give away, the one I intended with my Kindness Give-away that turned into such a drama-and-bully-fest.

To participate in the give away, all you have to do is reblog this. Winner receives one custom padded leather starfish farms halter that they will order directly through Starfishfarms.com

I am making this a give away because I owe you all a give away and I feel that this will widen the net, so to speak, in finding the right people the job.


In short:
1. Three blogs in need of co-OWNERS
biggayequestrianblog.tumblr
WTFhorseindustry.tumblr
equestrianartists.tumblr
2. Apply by following the above rules.
3. This is also a give away. All you need to do is REBLOG. Reblogging only counts once, likes do NOT count.
4. An additional entry is awarded to those who follow thecityhorse.tumblr


Good luck and I hope we find the right people!!!!!!!!
