    Default Who will break in my stallion

    Hi All

    I not a horse expert and know very little.

    I have a beautiful stallion that needs to be broken in. I would really love someone that will do it as good as possible, knowing a professional job could run up tens & thousands.

    Some one to break in the horse and at the same time teach my wife also some horse riding lessons.

    We live in the far west rand between Carltonville and Randfontein, having a small farm trying to do all sorts of things. Having a horse to ride will be excellent.

    Willing to travel to the krugersdorp areas as well.

    Thanks all.

    You can contact Kyalami Park
    http://www.kyalamipark.com/


    It is the centre of all things ‘horse’ in Gauteng and are usually very helpful.


    They also have a facebook page
    www.thsinfo.co.za


    It replaced the Gauteng Horse Society which was renamed from the Transvaal Horse Society hence the abbreviation “THS” still being used. Google these 2 names and look for adverts on the old websites.


    The following riding schools are on the West Rand.
    Riverleigh Equestrian Centre
    http://www.riverleigh.co.za/


    Fourways Riding Centre
    http://www.4waysriding.co.za/fourways-equestrian-club/


    Burlington Stables
    http://www.burlington.co.za/


    Although they are riding schools, they normally know and can point you to several reputable trainers.


    You can also contact the following tack shops. Trainers often advertise their services at tack shops.


    http://www.westernshoppe.com/
    http://www.horsemanshaven.co.za/


    You can also look for trainers on this website

    That's a beautiful stallion! If my niece was here instead of Australia she would be on his back like a shot. She is a kind of "horse whisperer". I will ask her advice and see what she says

    @ Puma. Yes he is a cross breed between a Arabian & something starting with a "R" can't remember. Yeah my wife is pretty adamant that she wants to ride him, but of course it all depends how calm the guy is after he's broken in. I'll make 100% sure of that first or maybe I'll get a mare that both my wife and kids can enjoy.

    @ Baben. Yes he is beautiful boy and I kinda like his attitude. Very playful on his own but as soon as I try and handle him "halter opsit" then he is very nervous, but once on I can walk with him where ever.

    But will definitely look at a mare for the kids this Christmas holidays.

    Guys Being here on a small farm. I have planted about 10 hectares of lurcern for my sheep. This type of lurcern comes from Australia and has about 40% more leaves than our traditional SA lucern. And this stuff is growing so green and really really nice. Is there a market out there for exceptionally good quality lucern, if there is then I will plant the other 15 hectares as well. Please let me know. Thanks

    Hi Fisheagle

    Ok I will try and get my finances in order to plant the other half of the farm. (Have been thinking of sinking another borehole at the far end of my place)

    If I have any spare bales over I will definitely advertise here. Thanks.

    I heard that it is better to break a horse in,in a dam than on land. Something about breaking a horses spirit if done wrong. In a dam the horse can be controlled and less dangerous to the rider. Please correct me if wrong.

    Also heard that one must put a saddle on to get it used to something on it's back before just climbing on and riding.

    How many hands is the horse.

    I would definitely suggest that you have the stallion gelded.

    Note that not all vets specialise in horses, there are not many that do.
    For veterinary services for horses, I suggest


    Northrand Anmal Clinic
    http://www.infovet.co.za/nrac/Horses-ageing.html


    Grand Central Vet
    http://www.infovet.co.za/grandcentra...e-details.html


    Fourways Equine Clinic
    http://fourwaysequine.co.za/

    A horse vet does NOT come cheap.


    If you have a horse box, I would suggest using Onderstepoort. They are excellent and not as expensive as private veterinarians.

    Regarding the breed and height:

    Not that it really matter, but to me it looks like the stallion could have some Nooitgedachter in it and that the horse’s height would be between15hh and 15.2hh.
