    My second horse was a racetrack reject; I didn't get him directly off the track but from a resale barn that had bought him out of some guy's field where he'd been for the two years in between racing...

    I would agree that 2-3 weeks is plenty of time to see the effects from the injections. Toe dragging would indicate stifle issues to me.

    Well, my guy isn't quite that old yet- just turned 17- but he does have some arthritic changes after a full life as a racehorse, event horse, and dressage horse. I have him on the SmartFlex Senior,...

    Definitely would recommend him. I was lucky enough to take regular lessons and be a working student for him and cannot say enough about how much I learned!

    I don't mind quirky, but I don't do dangerous, i.e. horses that flip themselves over when they're upset. My current horse is quirky- I've had him eleven years now, and while he may have been too much...

    IMO, River Glen is a solid Novice, or at least was the last time I was there (which admittedly was several years ago). They have some good size fences and the terrain makes things interesting.

    My first horse definitely did- as I got to be a better rider, he tested me more. He'll take care of a green rider and I never have to worry about putting other people on him- I've even taught an...

    I agree with giving him more time; it sounds like he's mainly confused. My OTTB would do something similar when he didn't understand or felt the problem was too hard- he would just snap and run...

    Nope. I'm definitely a better rider XC than stadium, and much more prone to nerves over the rails. Go figure. Like you said, they fall down!

    Medium Light blankets? Around 100g?

    I cannot believe how hard these are to find! So far, I have found this weight in Rambos, which are definitely outside my budget, especially with a horse that is hard on his blankets, Champion, which...

    My OTTB is 16 this year and is on 4lbs Equine Senior twice a day. He also gets alfalfa mixed in with his grass hay, and is turned out 12 hours a day (trust me, I wish he could be out 24/7!). If he...
