    My point is that the scores are getting higher and riders are needing a better horse to win. This is not exactly a secret! It has nothing to do with Alberta. Watch a video of 10 winning GP rides from...

    And again, I have to say "WHY?" Why the rush to breed to unproven stallions? Especially since they are often not much cheaper than the proven one

    I know the stallion quite well as his owner's daughter used to haul in with him to take dressage lessons at our place. He is a very rideable, correct horse with a great character and super talent for...

    No, I found Adequan on the same site (miracle of miracles!) and so he wrote a prescription for that. Pentaussie is on back order but you can sign up and get an email notification when they get it in,...

    Allivet carries Pentaussie (though they are back ordered right now) but they do accept Canadian prescriptions. I order from them all the time and it is always great service. Maybe just keep checking...

    Adequan and Pentosan are different chemically and they work differently! Not a lot of people seem to know or understand that.
