Fresh from Home Horses Dumping Jockeys
« on: June 14, 2014, 03:10:34 am »
I'm looking for some advice. I've got a few horses that are fresh off months at home and they're dumping jockeys. What are the fixes/causes for snotty ponies? Is it an equipment issue? Could it be a surface issue? Please and Thank you ahead of time for your advice.

It's due to high energy - resting at a farm means they're full of energy, thus they throw the jockey off. ;)

Thank you Shanthi. I wish they'd stop being silly so they could work off some of that energy instead of wasting their workouts. Silly ponies. At least they're well rested.
