    One of the positives of the RS article is that kids are reading it and talking about it. Probably, partially because it is in Rolling Stone. My son is a junior at UPenn and told me it was a big topic...

    Here's an article from www.thehorse.com that talks about boots. Support boots, like SMB boots, mostly restrict...

    Learn to long line (drive). I used to long line my horse out on the trails. It is a great way to get them used to walking forward on their own and listening to your commands without putting any...

    I always trace clip my horses because it's easier to cool them out but they also have enough coat to stay a bit warmer. I'm much happier adding/removing blankets than having a horse that gets so hot...

    Absolutely have your trainer evaluate the horse and you together.

    Personally, I look at a horse first on my own (with a friend) to weed out the unsuitable ones, then ask my trainer to evaluate...

    Always bring someone with you who isn't an enabler and who has a good eye for soundness. There have been times when I've been enamored of a horse and needed someone to tell me that yes, it was short...

    Yes, trying before you buy is an excellent approach and could save you a lot of headaches.

    However, trying to run a facility while also holding down a corporate job is a bit of a non starter (IMO)...

    Is there any way to get the demo model reflocked to fit your horse better? I agree that there is some risk involved in having a new saddle made . . . might be better to work with the one in front of...

    This!

    People are sharing their experiences with what you want to do. If you just wanted people to clap their hands and cheer your idea, you should have put that in the original post :lol:.

    Yes, I did try chinese herbal medicines on my TB. Didn't make any difference and it was expensive. More turnout and more work made a bigger difference.

    Your horse is anxious and paces her stall. My TB would also exhibit those symptoms without adequate turnout, regular work, and a low-starch diet. For him, it means 24/7 turnout; other horses seem to...

    Yes -- last year I came across a free horse being given away by the huntsman at a nearby hunt. My friend needed a hunt horse. He's turned out to be a gem.

    I foxhunted in hoof boots for several years. If they fit right, they generally don't come off.

    I had about one come off per year (spring/fall season) and only if my horse had just been trimmed and...

    No, hoof boots do not improve traction. In snowy or icy conditions they are worse than barefoot. I've had horses that are barefoot all year. We use boots when the ground is very hard but never when...

    I used hoof boots for a long time and agree that they reduce traction rather than improve it. I'm surprised you would need more traction in an indoor -- it sounds like he doesn't like the footing. I...
