    It's good that you got this behavior from her in the round pen. Horses have to make mistakes in order to learn. Watch this series of videos from Warwick Schiller - he is dealing with an aggressive...

    Thanks, Katy. It's so important to allow the horses to nibble on something all day long, and just as important to make sure that "something" does not cause problems.

    OP, what about checking with...

    I don't think the colt understands what you are trying to teach him. It's so hard to make a horse calm down and go slow, that most people start by encouraging the horse to trot/canter around a round...

    What kind of insurance do you want? Mortality? Major Medical? What is the value of your horse(s) and what risks/exposure do you have?

    Can you do ground work in lieu of simply allowing the horse to gallop around the ring? The thing is, you are worried about your horse being annoyed, so you are trying to please her, when it should...

    I can't by any stretch of the imagination think of how poultice will help with weak stifles. Most of the time, you put a bandage over poultice, so unless you are using a product I am not familiar...

    OK, thought you were having a problem with your shoulder and also worried about his neck! I guess it depends on how often he reaches for the cookies, and how long he holds his neck in that position....

    It might be the dust in your pillow. But the only way to know for sure is to try different things! I know that no alcohol + generic benadryl makes a big difference for me.

    What does the label of the feed bag suggest feeding each day? Are you feeding that amount? I don't mind adding alfalfa, but I tend to like to keep a program very simple, with one forage source as...

    Chris,
    Melissa gives good advice. I think you need to get him really comfortable at the canter in the ring before asking him to do it outside. His evasion tactics are his way of telling you that...

    The problem is that your "word" is not sufficient documentation of the value of the horse for the purpose of underwriting. The company requires outside documentation because who is to say the horse...
