    I'm not sure how I feel about the surgery. It just sort of freaks me out I guess. For the past two years I've tried chiro, massage, hot and cold laser therapy, acupuncture, oral joint supplements,...

    Kissing Spines...feeling depressed

    I have posted a lot about my tb, most recently about bringing him to a clinic for a bone scan.

    Thank you again everyone!
    Ruth- the only one I haven't heard of is Gathering Farm in Hamilton, and it is much closer than NH. I'll be sure to check it out once I get him sorted out.

    **UPDATE**...
  6. Thank you :)

    Thank you :)

    That would be my trainer, and that is how he goes...If you let out a little line he takes off, cross canters, bucks, squeals, goes on the wrong lead, etc. There is no getting him back from this once...

    Yes, we've tried backyard and it didn't suit us. I was going to look at Waters Edge, but they never have a stall available. I've checked out equine site and haven't found anything that would be the...

    Ruth- I already have the appt. scheduled with my local vet for next Friday. Is it bad to call and cancel and let her know I'm taking him to the clinic instead? New England Equine is close to his...

    Thank you Ruth. I board in Danville, NH but live in Lexington, MA. I have moved him to a few barns in the area and he has not been as happy as he is in NH-- huge, all day turnout, very consistent...

    I have my saddle checked and adjusted every 3 months and also checked for even contact with a thermographic camera. I wish it was saddle fit. I have tried other saddles on him too with the same...

    Thank you everyone. I really appreciate everyone's responses. Today I was up there, it's the first day where it hasn't been below 20 degrees, turned him out without his blanket for the first time in...

    I have definitely considered a bone scan. If I have no answers next week from my vet we're headed to Tufts. Pleiad- was your horse sometimes okay, and then once warmed up was mostly fine? Then other...

    Thank you...I think, hope...my trainer's point is that some days he does work out of it, and acts fine, which doesn't make sense. Yesterday he was good, today he was horrible.
  15. Please help me brainstorm about my messed up horse **Novel to follow**

    Hello all,
    I have posted in the past about my poor horse who, soundness-wise, can't seem to catch a break. I have the vet coming out next week for more x-rays. Please help me brainstorm in the...

    My horse is in Danville, NH. I would love to get a recommendation of someone in my area if you know of one. My current saddle fitter is Karen Withstandley, who is an independent saddle...

    Spartacus-- post a picture of your boy! I actually just got in touch with County to see if I could get a rep out to try the rest of their line. I think the major reason my horse didn't like the...

    Also, what British brands would you recommend to build exactly what I want? I'd be willing to wait for the perfect saddle!

    Thank you Jenny! You actually helped me last year when I was looking for a saddle. I have read reviews on both the Kent and Masters and Albion K2. I've read that the leather quality on both isn't...

    Last year I bought a Collegiate Nobility for my short, flat backed TB. It has worked for us for the past year, with some flocking adjustments by saddle fitter. Now, the saddle is falling apart....

    Where in MA are you? I've worked with a lot of specialists, some a lot better than others, and local vets, also some a lot better than others. I would also definitely recommend going to Tufts over NE...
