    My big WB has size 4 feet and lives in the Davis xl horse boots. I did once get the Davis draft xls by accident, and they are truly, truly huge. Like I really don't think a horse with that size feet...

    Perfect practice does not involve the most expensive gear. For someone new to the sport, as everyone else has said, your most important "gear" is going to be a good trainer. Then a horse to lease or...

    Right. Makes sense. When my horse can't jump sticks for fun without preventative drugs, he doesn't jump sticks for fun any more. I wouldn't put him in a box where he stands "head to tail bone against...

    supershorty, I think this format of discussion makes it easy for individual nuance to get subsumed into a general tenor or theme. I have no doubt you take excellent care of your beautiful horse, and...

    If the horse is prone to interfere protection can be useful. If not, all you are dong is heating up the tendons and ligaments, structures which have been proven to degrade if overheated.

    Our BM, who is a very experienced horse person, recently twitched my young horse for a quick mane pulling. He didn't seem even remotely distressed, stood quietly and relaxed, and as soon as the...

    I can pretty much guarantee that she can find a reputable eventing trainer who has no expectation that she will do anything but ride her own horse, 100% of the time (barring injury etc), and will be...

    Well, if it makes you feel any better, my big warmblood has had multiple windpuffs bigger than that on both hinds for ten years. Vet told me at PPE would not be a problem and it hasn't.
