Welcome To All Horse Lovers!
If you're looking for information on horses, horse facts and horse care, then you've come to the right place. This site is the "The Greenhorns Guide to Horses". It's also for anyone else who loves horses and wants to learn more about them.
First let me say this, I LOVE HORSES! I am blessed to have four wonderful horses. My oldest is 15 and my youngest is 2 months old.
My horses mean the world to me, and I try to take care of them accordingly. This is a picture of my baby. He's so spoiled!!
Horses can be the most wonderful partners, sometimes! However, even the best horses can have bad days and bad habits. If you own one or more, then you know what I mean.
Horses are very intelligent animals with very big hearts. With the proper care and teaching, they can become one of your best friends.
There is, however, more to horse keeping than just riding them. There are a number of chores that come along with horse ownership.
Feeding horses, horse grooming, horse hoof care, horse injuries are just a few of the things to think about.

I have learned so much over the years about horses and horse care
, (mostly through trial and error). I always thought horse riding consisted of "jump on, kick and go". Boy, was I wrong.
Our equine friends deserve the best care we can give them. That's why we should arm ourselves with as many horse facts as possible.
There are so many issues that we face in the horse world everyday, and not all of them are good.
Horse ownership is a big responsibility, and should not be taken lightly. Do as much research as possible before making the decision to buy a horse. Get all the horse facts!
There are so many people who go out and buy horses and then find out how much work and expense are actually involved. A number of these horses end up neglected, abused or worse.
Horses are a huge part of America's heritage and should be treated as such.
Wherever man has left his footprint in the long ascent from barbarism to cultivation, we will find the hoofprint of a horse beside it. -John Moore
There are certain jobs that horses do very well, and to-date, no technology has been developed to replace them. Some of these jobs include: Mounted police, Cattle driving, Search & Rescue organizations and Therapeutic horseback riding.
Not only have horses been used for the work and pleasure of humans, they have also carried our soldiers into war. Calvary units were used in war, well into the 20th century.
Horses were used to pull wagons that carried our ancestors across deserts, plains and mountains, in order for us to live the life we live today. So please be good to your horse, after all he deserves it.
My goal here is to share the important horse information and tips I have learned over the years. Maybe you wont have to do the whole trial and error thing, like I did. Hopefully, you can learn from my mistakes.
One major horse fact that I have learned in the horse world is this. If you ask ten different horse owners or ten different horse trainers a question, you will get ten different answers. Most of them think their way is the best way. I'm not one who thinks my way is the best way, it's just the best way for me. Just consider my tips and techniques, free advice.
If you have any horse facts, tips, shortcuts or techniques that you would like to share on this site, please contact me and I will post them. Also, let me know what you would like to see more of, or more information about, on this site. I aim to please.....
