    I've had a few vets now tell me that they would never, ever, ever ride on GGT or similar synthetic footings after the damage they've seen to horse's joints. One said that many of the cases they're...

    I've been reading the thread on the H/J forum with interest as I have heard several stories about horses ridden regularly on GGT coming up with significant lameness issues. I've also had several...

    I'm interested in the responses...I'll be moving to the area in the fall and trying to explore all my options for different services.

    Beautiful site, but having trouble with the functionality. Also seems like a lot of the trainer listings disappeared? I was hoping to look at the N. CA trainer listings and there are only three when...

    Ugh, he's lovely! Just love his type...agree that his movement isn't WOW in the video, but the basic canter is pretty nice and I think will improve with fitness and focused work. Same for the trot. I...

    As I continue to do battle with Custom, all I can say is THOROUGHLY EVALUATE YOUR REP. This woman sold two saddles in one trip. Mine was (obviously) a disaster, and the other woman just returned from...

    This definitely does describe the issues we've had--he's got huge shoulders but high withers and the saddle just sinks down behind his shoulder. We did a full thermal scan of his back immediately...

    Good luck, and I hope you get to the bottom of whatever this is! It seems like you're trying to do right by your girl. Jingles for you. :)

    I bought a "custom" Icon Flight and must say I have had a hell of a time with it. $4700 for the saddle, a total refit when the saddle arrived not right, then close to $1500 in vet bills addressing...

    Something is very wrong in her hind end. I'd wager on something neuro. Definitely time to find a new vet and do some workups.

    I just honestly can't believe there are people concerned about a judge being influenced by a championship logo on a pad or, god forbid, a monogram. Most judges probably can't even see the damn...

    Jeeze, I'm glad I read this. These are relatively new, correct? I don't remember any of this. What about breed logos? Is that specified anywhere?

    Good luck...spent a year working with my local tack shops and several others trying to get a hold of them to buy bridle parts. Eventually just bought something else. They ignored calls and emails.

    Are you sure it's a pull and not a tear? My guy sustained a small muscle tear in his right hamstring due to a grooming area accident...3 days of Banamine, 7 days of Bute, and 30 days of only hand...

    My guy gets called piggy a lot, in an endearing way. Most of the time he goes by Pollo (paw-low) or "O Pollo my Pollo" ;) His barn name is Apollo, for the reference.

    Essentially, JackSprats Mom, there ISN'T one correct answer. Because it's not a classical movement, there's not oodles of classical literature detailing the way it was best done in the 18th century....

    I don't have any recommendations re: housing, but do have a couple of thoughts re: board.

    The UC Davis Eq Center only boards to students, so that isn't an option unless you're going to school...

    Sounds to me like his four humors are out of alignment. Or his chakras. Or his Qi. I'm not actually a qualified practitioner but you should believe me anyway.

    A woman I know puts bell boots on just the hinds of her mare who is quite narrow. Apparently it helps keep her from slicing herself up. She doesn't use front bell boots, either!

    I started this last night, and figured it was on its way out at 16 pages with no apparent response from PO to take it into real trainwreck territory. I logged back in to find it at 24!! pages.

    I really like those armbands that you can slip your phone into. I find having my phone in my pocket when I ride to be irritating; I can never really forget that it's there. It's always jabbing me in...

    I still drink from the hose regularly, at least at places I'm familiar with. If I don't have my reusable water bottle handy, the hose it is. And I refill the water bottle from the tap or hose, too!

    I frequently drop the "t" in hunter, and pretty rarely in canter. As others have said, it usually depends on the situation. Born, raised, and still residing in California.
