I had no problem drilling the holes. I bought a huge drill bit at Home Depot, and it went really smoothly.
I loved the first three, and the Sneaky Pie books, but the ones that have come out in the last few years have been way too preachy. I no longer find them fun to read.
Horse lives at home, so I microwave rice in an old sock for 1.5 minutes before heading for the barn. Put it on the bit, and, by the time I am tacked, the bit is warm.
Since you are using injectables, I would not supplement orally. If you see an issue, add in MSM, but I am in the why bother, especially for young horses camp.
Now you just need to write a book set in the eventing world :)!
Mill Creek in Topanga Canyon has a dressage program. Have not been there for nearly 15 years, but it might be worth looking into.
Agree on checking her ovaries. I would also get a second opinion on saddle fit. Have you tried other saddles just to see if that might be the issue?
For the OP. Do you also charge horse rental to the kids?
My daughter has moved her horse to our house. I was explaining to her that feeding good hay and grain and bedding the stall costs about $250 a month. Use that as a gauge of barns. Anywhere that...
I have the slimline ID. My eventer is retired, but I trail ride and bike alone. I also just won an IPAD mini from Road ID for winning the refer a friend contest. Woot woot!
STP has a great price on them if you are the right size: http://www.sierratradingpost.com/carhartt-sandstone-bib-overalls-insulated-for-women~p~57654/?filterString=s~carharrt-women%2F&colorFamily=40
Have not read the entire thread, but there are Myler bit rental programs. My horse stopped having issues once I got him a Myler MB33. As he aged, he needed a change in bit to be comfortable. He...
Agree on the Ainsley. The Chester or the Cross Country older models are great.
Forgot to add, you can also hunt on bute or previcox.
I will give you the scientist's explanation. It is a selection bias called the Healthy Worker effect. Hunt horses only stay hunt horses if they can stay sound. Much as I love Hunting (and so did...
I retired my guy (from Novice) at 16 when he could no longer come off XC sound. The drops were hard on his front feet, and he would be off before stadium.
I have loved Arty from the start. Someday I want to get my own Arty. I remember how impressed I was with him in the indoor with all the balls and stuff as a baby.
And the antecedent for "she"? HBA, Kingsway folks, or Ginny?
I have as well. I am continually impressed by the way that Philip Dutton mentions the owners at every turn. He is always thanking them and showing his appreciation. Not only is he a great rider,...
:) So happy for you and Cotton!
The Panels do not seem to follow the curve of his back. I think that would leave him back sore fairly quickly.
My horse went in a Nathe for a long time, but as he aged, something changed in his mouth, and he was biting his cheeks with the Nathe. Problem solved with the ported bit.
I feel as though the USEA is falling into the trap that the EPA does. We don't need better rules to ensure consistent course design (and modify the current rules to mimic course designers who are...
My horse has a big fat tongue. He has a Myler MB33 eggbutt that he loves. Try Horse rider etc for bit rental to see which one works for you.
