    I think this can be wonderful for both sides. My old horse, now 27, lives and works at a TR center. He gets excellent care, has a job, and enjoys the attention from the kids. He's a rock star there...

    I had great luck with Lubrisyn and saw results within 3-4 days. When I could no longer afford it, I switched to Flex Force HA and found that my horse at the time (16 years old, arthritic hock) went...

    I tried on a pair of the Sovereigns and found them to be oddly configured. The foot size was enormous in relation to the height of the boot and width of the calf. The footbed was also very...

    I currently use the Oster Clipmasters for body clipping. For two years, I used my Andis AGC 2 speed but found they were too slow. They also didn't clip the dense yet fine hair on my old horse very...

    I feel not so alone now! I don't like riding in the oppressive heat. This weekend is looking especially brutal. He might get time off, or maybe we'll just walk. It all depends on how hot and humid it...

    It was in August last year. I remember because I was visiting my sister during the sale. I believe it was earlier in previous years.

    gumtree,
    Your post seems to fit my situation pretty closely. Can I ask who finally diagnosed and fixed your horse? I suspect that my horse might have an SI issue that has caused other issues -...

    My horse also couldn't deal with sole pressure. I consulted a 2nd vet after the eggbar shoes and coffin joint injection didn't work. She gave me a wake up call about how my horse was trimmed and...

    My horse had a front foot lameness related to the coffin joint. He was sound upon blocking, and we went through a whole bunch of different shoeing options. Initially, we put leather pads on his front...

    tissues

  17. Anybody have World-Class Grooming by Cat Hill & Emma Ford?

    I'm a grooming junkie and am always looking for useful tips for stunning turnout. Is this book worth buying? Most of the books I see contain little more than the basic grooming techniques. I've been...

    I like SmartPak and usually check them out first when I need something. I like their shipping policy (free over $75, free returns on sized items). I also receive my orders very quickly. I have...

    In the 11 years I've owned my horse, my trainer has been on him twice. My trainer and I both prefer that he teaches me how to handle the horse. In the long run, it has made me a better rider. The...

    Yes, it is common, but the loyal customers often resent it. My cable bill is WAY higher than what a new customer would pay. It's not like they're getting one month free. They get two years at half...

    We're seeing ticks on the horses in Central PA too. I plan to start fly spraying when my horse goes out.

    Here's another Piper Breech with Modified Rise. No reviews yet. The legs of the "regular" Pipers are tight for me. I wonder how these will fit.

    Trouser socks from Walmart. The price is right. Zocks don't provide enough support for my legs, so I'm not a fan. Haven't tried the others mentioned.

    I concur with Infusium 23 leave-in conditioner. It's inexpensive and works great. I mix mine about 1 oz Infusium + 7 oz water and use it as a whole body grooming aid. It's a lot less pricy than the...
