    If she is in a dry lot all day that's not what I would call extensive grazing. My horses live out on grass 24/7 - when my older horse was stalled during the day and out at night for an injury he...

    I'll be there and we will be practicing ditches like mad - glad to hear it is no longer in the woods as I do remember that and think I would probably lose that battle....

    Well, I signed. I am a Kathy White fan so was already convinced there and have been told by several folks that xc is "reasonable," which is all I'm looking for. I know it's friendly and all on grass....

    I once took my previous draft cross (not the one in my sig - other one was more drafty looking) to a schooling jumper show....he won his division, much to the amazement of the snotty kids who...

    Now that I keep HS in my tack box, I tend to give it a swipe after every ride unless I am in a hurry. More effort when I have a clinic or show, but I don't take it all the way apart - I will undo a...

    Well, it's not just muscles. Bone and soft tissue (ligaments and tendons) also need gradual conditioning. Soft tissue is easily strained by deep footing. I would definitely increase work gradually on...

    I will pass your thanks along to the crew - it is much appreciated!

    Yeah, give it time. Mine is a year older and I am not exaggerating when I say his canter is unrecognizable from where it was. Just focus on strength and flatwork and do poles and grids. He'll grow up...

    How old is he? Draft crosses can take a long time to develop and they can be heavy in front and unable to adjust their canters for longer than you think.

    Mountain horse makes a nice boot for the money. You night want to just go to a tack store and try some different brands as fit is such an individual thing.

    Well, I am in the camp that says 9 months is too long for adjustment or strengthening or whatever. I suspect you need a narrow twist saddle. I ride in a dressage saddle several days a week and am...

    Yeah, if the owner won't call a vet, you need to end the lease early. That horse is not rideable.

    The hind premiers are tall - but you could size down. My perch cross, who has reasonably sturdy legs (wears a large Davis bell boot) but not super tall (he's 16.2), wears a medium in those boots up...
