    Wookiee- You did the right thing. It got unbearable. I don't know how so many managed to get around. Sunday was better until later- still hot and humid, though.

    But I have to say...Your horse is...

    I have four, too. Started with a delicate flower OTTB, as I was dealing with his issues got the DraftX mare. She doesn't want to jump in the show ring, so a good friend took pity and gave me an...

    Bounces...LOTS of bounces. I've seen great results from a set of 4 bounces in a row. I'd have to look at my copy of 101 Jumping Exercises for the exact measurements, and I am sure there are many more...

    Count me in, too! It's nice to know we're not alone in this frustration.

    Mine is a PITA who is good at home, has a great jump, but has figured out that if she stops enough, she gets to leave. Pros...

    Thank you guys for your input- I feel like the worst must be over, but wanted to be overcautious. I was a vet-tech for 10 years and that was the most blood I had ever seen. Really freaked me out.

    The town of Amenia is close- no showers that I know of, but plenty of food availability, a Tractor Supply for camping/horsey needs, and a grocery store.

    If you need a shower, PM me. I am less...

    Here's the scoop:

    I have 4 horses- 3 mares, one gelding. One of the mares is new to the herd. I introduced slowly and finally, turned everyone out together. (I have one very large field with auto...

    I tried my OTTB on TC Senior and he went nuts! Now he is on Ultium and doing well. Every OTTB is unique- you have to play a bit and find what works.

    That said, TC Senior is definitely worth a try....

    I would definitely suggest that your friend give him a call. He is meticulous with horse care, has the connections, and will do his best to match the horse with the "right"client. (and of course,...

    I think I was misleading in my first post. I am not really asking about jumping- though that is where the main issue is most noticeable.

    Are there any constructive ways (besides smacking...

    I wonder about her being a PMU baby, but I don't think so, then again, I don't know much about her early, early history. The woman I bought her from had her from 2 years, so I know she wasn't pushed-...

    Thanks Reminisce for starting this thread!

    Count me into the sore butt crowd. I bruised/poss.broke mine last Sunday, too. I am stubborn, but I may have to break down and join the donut crowd....

    I wanted to add that she seems to like jumping. She has even been known to drag me toward a jump when hacking. So I am not positive it is all an "I don't like to jump" issue.

    The sucking back is...

    Oh- KWalker- we have been progressing very steadily and slowly. And she had seen (and jumped) everything in this ring before at least twice. Outside much better than inside. But I am willing to keep...

    EPSM has been mentioned and I am going to transition her over to Sentinel LS with added oil. It certainly can't hurt and she has been steadily losing weight over the winter while in work- she was a...
  16. Any Advice? Sorely (bruised tailbone) needed! (A lttle wordy...sorry)

    I have a Perch/QH mare, 8 or 9 years old, very spoiled in her early years, and VERY smart. She can be the sweetest, but when she puts her donkey ears on...watch out!

    She is a great jumper(form...

    I agree with everyone - defintely saddle.
    I had a lovely Childeric that I ADORED!!! But after struggling with forcing my leg back and never getting there, along with 5 different people telling me my...

    That was eye opening to say the least. Thank you for posting that! It made me really think, because when you lay it all out on the table like that, it's a mind-boggling amount of substances being...

    I don't think this is WB related- I have an OTTB that will turn himself inside out to avoid going forward if it's not where he wants to go (essentially, the ring and we are working on it.) He will...

    So that's what my TB was trying to do to me last year!!!

    On topic though, I have a mare who drools a lot, even when not tacked up, and she has lots of foam. I ride in a french link loose ring and...

    I have an OTTB who's JC name is Gilatine.
    He won't be showing, though. His buck is an execution tool.

    My other OTTB is It's Buck's Turn- not horrible, barn name Tucker and he doesn't buck at all....

    Can I join the club? Because, OP, boy do I feel your pain

    Same problem, except I've become so defensive and tense in the shoulders that my mare won't pick up a canter. My intructor has me roll...

    I grew up in PA and used Murphy's Oil Soap until I got an OTTB mare who was SEVERELY allergic to it. She blew up along where my martingale and girth went-no doubt as to the culprit.

    Ever since,...

    Is there one that people recommend in particular? One they trust? I see Bill Northern mentioned- is he only in a specific area and does he only do horses at the track?
