    I agree with this. My horse can be very tough to handle, and ALWAYS tests new barn workers. He's gotten better (although will probably never be perfect in a boarding situation) because I make a...

    Welcome to my entire life. Every time I take my horse to the vet clinic for any kind of lameness thing, he is a total freak on a leash! He doesn't particularly like vets, and he is also just a hot...

    Okay, but certainly you admit that genetics are not within a person's control? So what you are born with, genetically, intelligence-wise or physical ability-wise, is kind of what you are going to...

    Well, who or what do you think should get the credit for innate talents or intelligence that a person is born with? The person themselves? That's ridiculous. You don't give yourself what you are...

    Okay, but if genetics and environmental factors are against you, you are really never going to be on a level playing field (also 60-80% genetics is quite a lot!). It is as 4Martini says - I doubt...

    Horses teach me the things about myself and about life that no one else can teach. They make me a better person.

    Well, if nothing else, this thread has made me remember why I really never read or post in the Off Topic forum. I find many COTH posters to be pretty awful people when it comes to non-horse topics. ...

    You seem strangely upset about my references to God. Replace them with "fate" or something similar if that makes you feel better. I'm hardly an extremely religious person, and it is only within the...

    Exactly. Whether you believe in God or not, I don't see how anyone can think that they earned their IQ or lack of mental/physical disability. My guess is that people who believe this have never had...

    Agreed. This would only make the problem worse for them and would also create a disincentive to seek employment. The rate of personal bankruptcy filings would also skyrocket.

    I think too many people believe that their physical and mental abilities are something they earned or somehow obtained for themselves. They are not. The capacity to work, at all, in any kind of job...

    You mean to tell me she wasn't eating out of a dumpster and also appeared to have a pet?!??? The NERVE of this woman! She should spend every moment in a complete depression, thinking about how...

    Yes. This is what I was going to advise also. Bring your bill of sale or other documentation of ownership of the horse as well.

    Great update. Your horse really does sound so much like mine. I have to be very careful to listen to him!

    Don't feel like an idiot! Honestly, lunging is a real skill, and the h/j set doesn't really focus on the nuances of it the way the dressage crowd does. My background is h/j, but I switched to...

    My horse had a broken upper canine tooth extracted under standing sedation, and it was very easy. I watched the entire procedure and can't imagine laying him down for that! I know of several other...

    OP, I don't think you even needed to justify 3s's comments with a response. You are going above and beyond for this horse, and you have hardly owned him for any time at all.

    I agree with others - I have several pairs, and I like them but don't love them. They are enormous in the waist on me if I want them to fit in the legs. I MUST wear a belt with them, or the...

    Probably should have kept reading, as the problem with this horse was diagnosed and has nothing to do with saddle fit. The horse has OCD in its neck. I think the OP's actions with respect to this...

    I have definitely seen dog rescues looking for used saddle pad donations on FB. They use them as dog kennel liners when transporting rescue dogs.

    I think the part I bolded above is where you went wrong as far as getting yourself dragged into this mess. I do agree that most of this is a complete cluster that has absolutely nothing to do with...

    I'm so sorry you are having such a rough time with...everything. :( I will say that my horse does what you describe (seemingly "playful" disobedience on the lunge line) when he is in pain. Like he...

    I think that basically anyone can ride if you find the right horse and right trainer. Go find the right situation for her, and don't look back.
