    The gal who does my horses' bodywork uses a lot of myofascial release in her work. It has done wonders for my horses. As far as frequency, mine are seen every 2-8 weeks depending on what they do.

    I am not a fan of slant loads for bigger horses (not a fan of slants at all). I have bigger horses and a slant load made for bigger horses, and I don't even think it's all that great for them.

    Haha, so true! Also, I'm thinking that I want to keep a second spare in there because I've heard so many stories of people having two blowouts on trips from hell.

  9. Replace trailer tires @ 5 years old even if they look great?

    My trailer is at the shop today getting wheels/brakes done, and I asked my very trusted tire guy to go look at the tires while the wheels are off. The tires are a little over 5 years old. They are...

    Well in that case, I would lower the teeth on my box scraper, rip the driveway to the depth of the pot holes, then crown and re-compact it. IME, this is the ONLY way to repair pot holes long-term. ...

    Wow, your story is almost identical to mine.

    My daughter's 23 year old schoolmaster went lame 14 months ago after getting loose and trying to run down another horse (very bad scene). Long short,...

    Don't do it.

    I was in a similar situation, leased my retired eventer out to a family who boarded him and took lessons. They were green but had good support at the barn. All was well.

    I have an EZ Groomer and I would NOT use it for gravel, I think it would tear up the tines pretty fast.

    What about buying a cheap mat type tine harrow? That's what I use to 'scratch up' the...

    I found that the long, narrow runs can at times invite a horse to pace or run the fence or gives him enough room to get up speed without adequate room to turn.

    I have a couple of paddocks that...

    I have silica sand as well. I found the sand and fiber mixed best when the fiber was damp but the sand was not super wet, just a bit damp (so it didn't lock together too much). I did a lot of...

    Haven't really heard of this, but if the vet's a good rider it might be useful!

    I have a 6 foot model made by EZ Groomer. I have sand, rubber and GGT in an outdoor. I've been really happy with the EZ Groomer, it's well built and pretty simple and the price was competitive.

    It's a great area, very horsey and Sacramento area to the south is super horsey-centric! Tons of shows, Loomis Basin Vet hospital (excellent), etc.

    I'm in CA on the soggy flatlands. My arena is 90 x 160 engineered and raised base with sand/ggt/rubber footing and a sprinkler system. I've got a solid $75,000 into it.

    My sand/ggf all weather arena is not being used right now, as my riding horses are boarded. I groom it every 1-2 weeks and water it on occasion, just to keep the footing from drying out all the way...
