    Even my normal/non-EPSM horses seem to behave that way if they are really high!

    With my own horses, excessively balky and lazy type behavior is usually how "being high" under saddle manifests. Especially if they show the energy to buck vs going forward. My best guess is that...

    I am generally very anti-pharmaceuticals for riding, but with all your bad weather and lack of turnout, etc., I would perhaps try reserpine till you can get some consistency. Sometimes when they are...

    Just saw merrygoround's link, and if it is just shivers independent of EPSM, unfortunately the prognosis is more grim. I have been fortunate that my guy with shivers hasn't gotten any worse over...

    I don't know whether to take your votes of confidence as a compliment and be pleased, or sad that I have had to deal with so many EPSM horses over the years. :/

    That said, I am experimenting with...

    Very often, shivers and PSSM or EPSM occur together and to me it certainly sounds like he has both. I would start by following the EPSM treatment right away. Really cut down on sugars and starches,...

    Ah, a melanoma could be the culprit, although it sounds as if he has had these issues a long time. Just recently handled a very neuro horse caused by an internal tumor impinging on the spine. They...

    Pablo might be a consideration. Have seen a few honys by him, aside from my own. Nice hunter types usually with enough scope for jumpers. My biggest problem conformationally with mine are lack of...

    It has been a while, but I do believe there was a bit of a steroid in there combined with the Sarapin.

    I had better/longer lasting results with Sarapin vs shockwave for the SI. It was only around $150 I believe. Might be worth trying that first, especially as it is the less expensive option.

    Definitely try Magnesium, but maybe even consider EPSM. Have seen the type of behavior you are describing with EPSM horses. A slight muscle twitch can turn into painful spasms.

    I have two of his saddles and not only are they absolutely beautiful to look at, made with top notch leather and craftsmanship, but they are wonderful to ride in as well. Both horses were a very...

    You might try starting a new thread on hind gut ulcer symptoms as a few COTHers have more experience with what lead them to treat for that. The stumbling in front can be heel pain for sure...

    We use a bedding called Cedarest in the outdoor sections of their stalls. It is not recommended for a closed stall as the cedar can cause irritation and I do know of some horses that have allergic...

    That is terrific news! Shockwave does seem to be a pretty great therapeutic device and I wish it would come down in price, and be less loud ;), so that more people could try it.

    Hope you can...

    Crazy that they don't permit omeprazole as the health of the horse should always be the priority. Not sure if it tests, but you might see if there is a list of infractions in your organization's...

    My vet likes rheaform over metronidazole. Clears it up with just one dose and very inexpensive, though they can go off feed.
