    I scratch my gelding's inside thighs and empty scrotum (gelded late with really big brains) for him after every ride. It makes him happy and keeps him from dancing around like a dipshit while the...

    Eh, when I was rehabbing my (tbd) DSLD gelding from a suspensory tear my (very respected) vet recommended the Professional's Choice Elite SMB boots. Used them for rehab with no issues.

    FTR, I do...

    Is he going under an electric fence / gate somewhere? We once had a barn cat with weird markings that turned out to be from sleeping too close to a heat lamp.

    I mow with the horses in the pasture. Even in spring when I do end up with furrows of fairly damp grass/weeds (PNW here). Never had a problem.

    I'm giving it for the same reasons. I did the 4 loading doses and now give it every 3-5 weeks to line up with shows. My vet suggested that I try to give it 4-5 days before a show for maximum benefit....

    Um, no. I haul 15 minutes to ride 5 days a week and it certainly doesn't take 1/2 a day.

    Weeknights:
    Home - 6 pm
    Change clothes, kiss husband, load horse, pull out - 6:25 pm
    Pull into barn -...

    I think he's adorable - he looks happy and not stiff at all. If he's been out of work awhile the saddle may fit differently than it used to until he builds muscle again - but I didn't see any glaring...

    Sorry. But REALLY?!?!

    Apparently you know nothing about reining. If I were ever to grab the horn I'm pretty sure my trainer would come out of her chair and smack my hands. Not to mention it's a 5...

    That field is just down the way from me (the first one). Hay is a generous term for what you would actually be baling. Not to mention it should have been cut a month ago. You get what you pay for.

    Thanks! Interestingly, as the instructor and I were discussing my goals, she suggested that we focus less on rein contact and more on my seat and body control since the rein contact might end up...

    Okay, what is likely a stupid question...

    If I were to wear boot cut breeches/tights with my cowboy boots (this pair: http://www.bouletboots.com/index.php?page=48&MCatID=2&CatID=94&PID=944) do the...

    Thanks all, I appreciate the varying perspectives.

    I typically ride in Boulet cowboy boots with a leather sole - I'm perfectly happy to wear those to my first lesson. I don't have anything...

    A Reiner Contemplates Dressage Lessons

    I went with a friend to her dressage lesson tonight (local, well respected trainer) and I'm considering taking some lessons on school horses this fall/winter to work on my feel and seat separate from...

    Trainer:
    - Show bills come to me by email, I can pay by check or online with a bank account / CC
    - I write checks for lesson packages

    If you need another local vet referral let me know. I've got two I go to for lameness exams that I like. Both are up here near me.

    My bad, I thought with the video of her in boots that meant she was barefoot.

    I still think foot sore, rather than shoulder or knee. But I have no basis for that other than instinct. My only...

    Personally? I'd put him down. It's not a popular opinion, but I've done it with two pasture sound geldings and a gelding with DSLD. I can only afford to support so many horses, and ones that have...

    I think I agree with foot soreness. Has she ever worn front shoes? My farrier was here last week and saying that this summer's weather is hell on feet. It may be that the hard ground, with now very...

    I've never worried about it for Adequan or Pentosan - I usually do it after a ride and then he's off until the next night. I wouldn't hesitate to ride a few hours afterwards.

    The goat is adorable (as is the hen).

    I see RH too. Might be up high. My gelding pulled a "groin" muscle last spring and looked like that on the lunge. There was a knot on the inside of his thigh, just inside and above the upper stifle...

    We've got a 2002 with ~130,000 miles on it. Only issues we've had (knock on wood):

    - alternator died last fall
    - developed leaks on the seals on top of the engine - but probably because it did a...

    No inside leg. Typically the cue for lope on a reiner is outside leg just behind the girth with the inside leg off. He may or may not be looking for a small cluck as well (depends on the trainer).
