    Yes, continuing to work a horse that is limping and has open wounds is cruel. Did you really need to ask this? Whether it's animal cruelty in a legal sense is something you'll have to research...

    This is true. For my work, I have to send letters to everyone within a mile radius to tell them about the work we want to do, and when the zoning meeting is. But by the same token, a...

    [eta: OP and I posted at same time. I don't know enough about that Dx to know its severity. It does sound bad.)
    Taking OP at face value that the medical problem is as cut-and-dry as it sounds:...

    Found it!!! It is this guy, hanging around your house and climbing a tree every now and then.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Heading out now to the barn and will give them all an extra scritch in honor of Murdock.

    No, I would not expect a discount. Assuming the injury is fixed/fixable without long-term impairment, I think she (and you) have been made whole by their covering the vet costs. If this were a...

    Me? I'd introduce her to a snaffle bridle, but via long-lining rather than riding. And very, very low key-- just give her the basics, focus more on ground handling.
    But I wouldn't be riding a 2y/o...

    Test the sound system extensively and make sure you and your helpers know how to use it. Set up the speakers carefully to avoid screech-y feedback (unless your clinic is about desensitizing :lol:)

    How about this: write down why you WANT her, vs. why you shouldn't get her. Is the list compelling? If yes, then go get her.

    I have a 12' web aisle guard that goes across the front of the barn. It's hung a bit low because I have a pony as well as big'uns. So for the big horses, the top of the aisle guard sits just above...

    OK, laughing at myself because I'm reading your "EEEEeeeHH" out loud over and over, trying to think what it is. I sound like a lunatic.
    My first (second, and third) thought like the others is...

    Hard to know what your true rights are here,...

    Hard to know what your true rights are here, without the purchase agreement terms fully defined (not that I'm asking you to do that here).

    It's very likely to get ugly from a relationship...

    That's a really nice use of the camera. I'm usually pretty good at getting the hitch ball where it needs to be, but there are always those occasions where it's just not my day and for infuriating...

    Mine is pretty close to being my dream property, but it's taken 14 years of work and investments to get it there. We renovated the 110y/o barn so I feel like I have the best of both--...

    OP, since you mentioned you're new to the Wonderful World Of Abscesses: if you don't have a Davis Boot, and if your horse isn't fond of standing in a bucket, pick up some heavy-duty 2gallon freezer...

    I'm going to vote The Wild Hunt only because my brain consistently "sees" Erkling instead of Erlking. I have to force myself to look at each letter. If Erkling ;) is the choice, maybe separate it...

    Another thumbs up for Duett. Just got the Rondo (their a/p model) and am still swooning over how the hoop tree fits my mare.

    Here's a list of exhibitors at one of the Equine Affaire events. May be a useful starting point to identify the types of products/services you gravitate to, and then trace the corporate structure of...

    The others are spot on that circling and backing are not punishment to a jacked up horse; it's at most a confusing distraction. He needs real correction, quick and quickly uncomfortable (compare a...

    I got the Rondo. Based on this one (so far!) I will totally be keeping an eye out for one of their dressage saddles.
    My mare is only 1/4 perch (rest QH), but somehow her flat-table back is ALL...
  21. Feeling so lucky-- found the perfect saddle on 1st try!

    Found a like-new used saddle on ebay that fits my crazy wide backed horse (Duett with 38cm tree). Great seller, and my mare LOVES the saddle-- I can feel it in her canter already.
    So all you saddle...

    I had to laugh at the "Ouch " and "Pain Free". Someone recently sent me a link to a saddle fitting article from this guy's website, and it was so incredibly simplistic and dumbed-down that it may as...
