    Look at findeight's sig line ("Two people. Three opinions.") -- that's a little bit what you will get when you ask about what is standard or OK in a boarding situation.

    Freaky. My suspensory horse did a sesamoid ligament on that leg several years later. It's why I retired him.

    Another option for managing arthritis is shockwave. I have a friend with a nearly 30 year old dressage schoolmaster -- he has super gnarly fetlock rads. Shockwave makes him dramatically more...

    You ran in May, no? I was on vacation :D
    And this last time, for the record, we had several lovely rounds by folks who looked entirely competent to go Prelim.
