    IMHO the religious nutters have a hand in this. They are the reason Texas didn't have pari-mutual for most of the 20th century. They seem to think that the historical racing terminals are really...

    Resistance training and adductor machines can help

    I second everyone who has suggested yoga or pilates or cardio.

    Resistance training is also helpful. It is good to have a strong upper body, helps prevent back pain. And it makes it easier to...
  8. Congratulations

    Very nice mare! Love the inbreeding to Humboldt, that should bode well for athleticism in her progeny. Here's hoping she has many healthy foals for you.

    I have Dehners paddock boots and they have no arch supports or anything inside so they accommodate orthotics very well unless they're really bulky. They also come in widths, which is good if your...
  12. Jock itch cream for ear fungus and Preparation H for black-fly bites

    If you can find Ko-Cho-Line which is a harness dressing, that also works. It has a stronger smell than Vaseline, a reddish color, and is about the same consistency. (Probably has Vaseline in it). It...

    Usually to improve the fit of a saddle

    Most people use them to improve the fit of a saddle, especially one that's too wide, or that sits down on a horse's withers.
  15. They ride a lot of them that way

    They ride a lot of the mounted patrol horses in rope halters. I see it all the time. Not sure if it's a test they undergo or what. It seems to be a permanent thing. Not something I would advise,...

    I have always thought Cost Conscious has an interesting pedigree for a sport horse sire although I have never seen him or his foals. He is by Believe It, who was also the sire of Rock Point, and out...

    I have had the best luck with Flick's

    I have used several (Equisect, Marigold, Absorbine Green, Flick's) and the best was Flick's, with Equisect second. Flick's also seemed to work on those big black bloodsucking flies that come out at...

  20. Ford trucks are the most frequently stolen vehicles in that part of Texas

    The thieves in the Houston area like all pickup trucks, but Fords especially.

    I've been to that Tractor Supply many times, always bought my horse treats and salt blocks there. Will definitely...
  21. Are you running on uneven pavement or doing a lot of turns?

    Years ago I had ITBS, in my case it was from running on a circular track which had a hard surface. Be careful to avoid too many turns, or running on the side of a road where one foot is always...

    I think you should add Nasrullah to that list

    Nasrullah was known to flake out at races and fail to finish. His foals often inherited his unreliable disposition, along with his degenerative hock disease.
