    Unless you train the leg means move forward before you get on.

    I usually do a modified trace clip on my working horses in the winter. The modification is that I don't clip below a line drawn between elbow and stifle. The belly is not a high sweat area, and...

    A week isn't long enough for a horse to settle into a bunch of geldings. As long as he's just losing a bit of hair and skin, and getting minor nicks like the cut you describe, I would give him a bit...

    I applaud you for recognizing and using your mare's learning style. It's an adjustment that isn't easy to make. I have a similar horse (gelding) who is incredibly food motivated and made...

    What did your vet say when you told him about the horse's reaction? Did you ask about alternative antihistamine drugs? Or trying a lower dosage?

    Antihistamines work by blocking the histamine...

    Yes, it's most likely you, or 90% you (though do get his teeth checked).

    I'm going to take a guess here - you are right handed, aren't you? As opposable-thumb-fixated human beings we tend to go...

    In my horses' cases their issues had nothing to do with the driving. If your driver/driving hasn't changed then look for other causes.

    I had one that would stop working in the indoor every spring. He would do what I asked in a molasses-slow, absolute bare minimum effort expended sort of way. And I could NOT get ANY extra effort...

    If you don't want to haul her, then tell her you won't. If it's just that she's slow, tell her what time you are leaving and do so, with or without her (if she's not ready).

    I am curious though -...

    My second horse started similar behaviour when he was 10 or 11. Giving him more space so he could widen his stance meant he didn't have to lean on the wall/divider any more, which meant he didn't...

    Sugar for wound packing. Helps stop the bleeding and creates an environment that bacteria don't like - similar to saline but without the sting.

    You might try putting up a visual barrier between your pony and the new horse and see if yours calms down. You could put up some kind of kicking cushion, but if the visual barrier stops the kicking...

    Quebec has looser liquor laws and you can find it in the grocery store, some drug stores, and the depanneur (corner store). Ontario is considering allowing limited amounts of beer/wine to be sold in...

    My best near miss was at a show. My horse took the long spot, then changed his mind and put his front feet down in front of the jump, throwing me up his neck even as he realized there actually...

    My horse is the opposite. When I had the saddle fitter/rep out we found two saddles that worked. The foam one honestly looked like it had been custom fit to his back. But HE liked the wool one (at...

    See if you can borrow a pair of jointed irons - ones that move easily, not very stiffly - and try them out. My non-arthritic knee pain vanished when I used jointed irons. At first one ride in...

    She's wearing the wrong boots. If she has to hop on a horse occasionally (though it sounds like not with that long coat) she could keep riding boots in the heated viewing room. But the rest of the...
