    I'm not an expert but I'd say absolutely, let her hand gallop.

    I have a 21 year old TB mare who had a little arthritis in her hind end, and I still jump cross rails with her and hand gallop her...

    My first thought was teeth, and second thought about drinking enough.

    If her teeth haven't been done in the past couple of months it might be worthwhile to get a dentist out to look at her. Lots...

    Yes, I'd say she's in pain. You should call the vet and have the vet look at her again. There are complications that are possible after hock injections, and you want to rule them out.

    It's a good idea to give a horse banamine for several days after a choking incident. The choke itself can cause the esophagus to become inflamed and swollen and that can then cause a subsequent choke.

    I have a 16 hand TB mare with a refined head, and the small horse size of the Micklem fits perfectly. I've been using a baucher bit with it, and she has responded very well to the combo. She was a...

    Yes, the standard advice is that if a horse is choking, you should remove all access to food and water from the horse because of the danger of aspiration, until the choke clears.

    Is everyone talking about the same strap? The Rhino Wug that I have has two straps: one that connects between the edges of the sides of the blanket, close to the hocks (that would be the one that I...

    He looks like a very sweet boy. I'm glad you got some input from someone who's had a chance to ride the horse and also knows you and how you ride very well. Good luck!

    I'd agree with Findeight that it would be a good idea to have your trainer ride him once a week, and maybe also for 15-20 minutes either before or after your lesson. The trainer can jump him (even if...

    You don't say why you're so sure the pain isn't a result of saddle fit. Even if you bought the saddle that the seller was using with the horse, that's not a guarantee that it really fits.

    As to the vaccine's effectiveness with horses, I think the right answer is we don't know for sure. As I understand it, the reason it's available for dogs is because it has been tested on dogs; it...

    Yes, I've found such ticks on both my horse and dogs. My horse has had lyme disease twice and been treated for it (and made a recovery) twice. (Actually she was treated three times, but the third...

    His feet look like they need a completely different trim. Especially in the second picture--of the right foot, the heel is under-run rather than being low. It's a classic picture of long-toe and...

    One thing you might try is a Micklem bridle; if you use it with the bit and with the bit clips it will keep the bit up off the bars a bit. And it is legal for dressage I believe (but you'd probably...

    I would also wonder about pain issues. One easy trial would be to give the horse some bute before the next farrier visit, and have the horse stand on stall mats rather than on concrete.

    You seem to be concerned that the horse's hoof is white, but that's completely normal.

    You might want to get the horse into some hoof boots (easyboots, or cavallos) on the front if you're going...

    I'd agree that you should go get the horse. The person is doing something very screwy: it could either be that they're trying to make you accept the $1500 as the full payment for the horse (the "old...
