    It's important when looked at in the overall diet to understand that hay stretcher pellets are not long-stem forage so cannot be a complete hay replacement. Hay cubes and beet pulp are considered...

    Bottom line? You can't just have the ownership of the horse signed over to you. It doesn't matter that you've been paying for his care. The owner didn't ask you to do it and there was no agreement...

    For a long time I fed a ration balancer along with either beet pulp or soaked cubes and it worked fine. I also feed Flax, but I do that anyway.

    Before jumping on the supplement bandwagon you might want to talk to an equine nutritionist.

    Many years ago I had someone come to my barn and look at my whole "package" -- hay, grain, supplements....

    $3.36/day :eek:

    I feed a digestive supplement because it does help my horse hold his weight. I either feed SmartDigest or HorseTech's GutWerks. I fed SmartDigest ultra when my horse was on Doxy...

    I think that sending a horse on trial is risky but there are some situations where it is what will make the sale. In those cases i would:

    - have the PPE done before the horse leaves your barn so...

    Given that you have so many potential buyers, I would stick to your guns and not let the horse go on trial.

    I have, in the past, let one of my horses go on trial and it worked out very well -- she...

    Or who buy a particular brand of saddle because everyone else has one.

    Or who have no access to good saddle fitters.

    Or are convinced by the saddle-selling rep that they need a custom saddle.

    How well do you know the vet that did the PPE? And how well does that vet understand what you want to do with the horse.

    The findings fall into a gray area (for me) and there are some vets whose...

    I was having a very hard time getting my mare to accept the bit -- her mouth was gaping, she was fussy with her head, etc. She is a totally different horse with the Peewee bit - Quiet, accepting,...

    I hate the polyester suits - no stretch. I prefer Tyr but make due with Speedo.

    Often on eBay you can find new w/tag suits in old colors for short $.

    I have one horse that loves her Peewee snaffle. She also didn't like other mullen mouth bits . . . You can find them on eBay for about $40.

    Sadly, much of finding the right bit is trial and error....

    It looks great! Isn't it fun to find a saddle that nice for so little?

    FYI, My favorite leather conditioner is Passier Lederbalsm. One of the saddles I picked up was also quite dry and it worked...

    Absolutely. Used those saddles are going for $700-$800. I paid that for mine, have had it for about 8 years and it's going strong.

    Good advice here.

    One thing to add. If you are not going to do flip turns, make sure you turn promptly and stay on the side of the lane and if you are going to rest at the end of the lane, please...

    If you don't mind going treeless, I think the Freeform Classic is incredibly comfortable and light.

    I agree with stating up front on the home page that this is a retirement facility. And also to have the location, phone number and email address prominently featured. I know that last two are down in...

    You did the right thing to make sure he is comfortable for now.

    And yes, he could possibly go barefoot again. Putting shoes on is not the kiss of death :).

    I also used a tack noseband with one horse -- coincidentally, also when riding with Ronnie Mutch!. For this horse, it made a huge difference.

    Please keep in mind that tack nosebands come in many...

    My first dressage saddle was one of those -- the green faded over time but when I got it (from Bucks County Saddlery) it was pretty green!

    If you can eliminate grain and go on a forage + multivitamin or ration balancer, that can be a good approach.

    However, some horses simply need too many calories to go that route.

    That is an over simplification. Sure, there are AP saddles that are not great for jumping in -- IME, those are the ones that have deeper seats and straighter flaps -- but that doesn't mean that they...
