    What are your remedies for a pricked nail? Bute? Ice? Epsom salt? Stay in? Turn out? Pull the shoe? Keep it on?

    Bumping this up...wondering if anyone has experience with the T @ Surefire? Im entered @ T, but flirting with the idea of backing down to novice (young horse, I heard the courses were a bit tougher)

    I wouldn't consider my boy started. Yes, I sat on him last fall, but he needs some basics reinforced. So far plan is to send him to roddy 2nd week of June. So thank you all for the suggestions and...

    I have a call into him. Recommended by my dressage trainer and a few good friends. Any opinions? He's a bit more pricey than the others I've called and he does recommend 60-90+ days for training...
  7. Just turned 3 and needs to get off the farm...who would you send to? (SE PA)

    Exactly what the title says.

    I have a very opinionated 3 y/o homebred. It's time for him to leave the farm and grow up. Looking for recommendations for a trainer that will take him for 30-60 days...

    Vet was out this afternoon to take some front feet films. I'm still waiting for the final review when she gets back to the clinic, but the preliminary result is super, super thin soles. Also, the...

    I think that is exactly the problem. Funny how one idea suddenly makes everything fall into place.

    Last year May or may not be related, but it is interesting to note she would be lame following a...

    Update - the vet was out this morning

    My vet was out for spring shots and coggins draws, so I decided to pick her brain a little bit about what she thought could be going on. Based on her initial view of my mare's feet, there was no...

    I was really hoping this was the case, but to add to the saga, she has been foot sore (left front on circles) for about 4-ish days. To make matters worse, she pulled the LF shoe this Saturday AM....

    Thank you for all the ideas -- very much appreciated!

    Unfortunately, I didnt bring it up this last trimming because I assumed it was an isolated problem related to the weather last spring/summer (extremely wet, muddy, boggy)

    But now that she seems to...

    Fixing the chronic abscesser...

    I was really hoping my abscess spring/summer from hell was confined to last year, but alas, it seems as though the super-mare has developed her first of 2014. Any ideas for preventing another round...

    Hi everyone -- thanks for so many thoughtful replies. Lots of stuff to think about!! Also, I am glad to hear I am not the only one to struggle with this. I can say by far, she is the most difficult...

    Tried that. It works for the first canter transition, and then the second one is absolute cr*p. Maybe I'll give it another try. Thanks!!

    She doesnt do it on the lunge -- interesting point. We struggled last year with her swapping behind at the canter, so my trainer had us doing ~15 minutes of transition work on the lunge before...

    Thanks for the reply, I will give the free/medium transitions a try. Interesting point, as that is something that my jumping instructor has stressed to us -- moving within the gait where as my...

    Hi everyone,

    I have a coming 7 year old DWBxTB cross that I've been working with for a little over a year. I am looking for some advice on how to teach relaxation in the transitions as well as...

    Basically what the title says. My trainer moved south for the winter and I'm stuck trying to stay in the groove and prep my mare for the spring season. I get extremely bored in the ring and am...

    I started working with him mid-summer this past year and have nothing but good things to say. My mare can be very difficult and fussy and he was able to pinpoint our issues within the first 5-10 mins...

    But from my understanding of other posters, he did offer honest feedback in the comments. The points are always subjective, to some extent, regardless if it is a schooling event or rolex.
  24. Is anyone else dealing with a year of abscesses?

    I am 98% sure my mare is working on her 5th (might even be 6th) abscess of the year.

    I know this spring and summer were pretty bad due to all the rain, but its been (fairly) dry this fall. She...

    I didn't realize they were different sizes? I have one from dover that is HUGE on me. I had to knot the sides to keep it from sliding off my shoulders.
