    It is normally one treatment. I had it done on my gelding last winter, and it didn't show much results.

    However, it turned out later, when we were finally referred for an MRI after trying...

    Were you paid by the salon owner too? If the salon owner is faking paystubs and keeping the withholding tax you (and mentor) will end up having to pay those taxes. Talk to a tax consultant. Also...

    Are you paying for rides or are you paying for training? A couple fewer rides per month should not have any impact on the horse's training.

    Insurance on my farm as a boarding facility was about $300 per month more than I pay now with it insured as a private residence. That doesn't even include care, custody and control, just the...

    Was that stifled? Doesn't look like the horse touched the jump into the water, rather took off from a half stride and landed way out of balance.

    This would also eliminate the groom at the finish line with the dark towel removing the blood before the horse is inspected.

    In the long run, her trashing you will reflect much more on her than on you.

    Sounds like you have a good plan for moving forward. Congrats on getting out of the situation so quickly!

    Whenever a non-horsey person asked me how much I paid to board my horse, I'd say "less than child care for one kid". That helped put it in perspective for people from work who I knew were trying to...

    Riding boots with enough room in the foot to put in better insoles and to be able to spread your toes out. What helped my plantar fasciitis was insoles with good arch support that were soft, memory...

    I've been really enjoying Kate Lattey's books, and I think most of them are on Kindle Unlimited.

    Love Dick Francis. The Felix Francis books are okay, but not as good.

    I don't think that's the farm they had in the book, but an article in the Chronicle in 2005 says her mother's Thoroughbred business was based at Edition Farm in Hyde Park NY.

    But that actually IS an issue with being a women, because dads don't have the same problem. It's not an issue that you are a parent; it's that you are a FEMALE parent.

    My ex told me he was sure I'd have to sell the farm if he moved out because I wouldn't be able to handle it on my own. 10 years later I'm still happy here!
